Prison Architect: How to make mods active?

If you are subscribed to a few mods from the Steam Workshop and noticed those mods are not showing up in your game then this is what you need to do.

Go to the Prison Architect menu

Pick “Extras” from the menu

Click on “Mods” from the second menu

You will see a list of the mods you have subscribed to from Steam. Check mark each mod that you want to be active.

Then hit apply and start your game.

Tavern Tycoon

Tavern Tycoon is a management game tycoon.  Which I think is highly underrated on Steam.  It’s has some negative reviews but don’t let that stop you if you are interested in that sort of game.  It is an excellent game for a casual gamer but is plenty challenging.

Here are a few tips to help you survive the first few levels:

  1. Only build the rooms you need.
  2. Make the rooms the default size and don’t add extra furniture. The toilets are the only acceptation. I make the toilet room a little bit larger and have 3 to 4 toilets.
  3. Read the quest thoroughly at the beginning of each level.  It will tell you what rooms you need. Build that room first.
  4. Locals like spas, Rogues like archery, Knights like the gym and Wizards / Mages like the arcane room.
  5. Most Patrons follow an order: Bar, Restaurant, Specialized room and then Guest room.
  6. Only allow enough patrons in that you have enough space for at the bar.  (I start out with at least 2 bars and then add more later)
  7. You don’t have to accept every reservation but don’t reject them!  Save them to accept later!
  8. It’s a good idea to always the let Health Inspector in.
  9. Patrons like to be near fireplaces.
  10. The highest rating a patron will give is: +20
  11. The lowest rating a patron will give you is: -30 (That is often because they were in a bar fight)
  12. The rating system is confusing.  A patron can be totally happy with everything and still leave with a negative rating. (This might because they had to wait on a room)
  13. There is no way to stop bar fights.
  14. Admin office isn’t necessary to win a level.  Don’t waste the money to build it.
  15. Staff will need a staff rest room.  I add three couches to it so multiple employees can rest at the same time.
  16. Build a workshop and adjust the slider on the research panel to all the way blue.  You will need to learn new recipes right from the beginning.
  17. The workshop needs a barmaid & bartender.  This helps to learn or improve recipes and improves the quality of the mead.
  18. You can add extra equipment to the workshop (providing you have the room) and more employees to make the research go faster.
  19. Patron’s ratings will fall drastically if: mead quality is poor, they don’t get the meal they want from the restaurant, specialized room is not available, nowhere to sleep, long wait times or they get into a bar fight.
  20. Benches, bookshelves and chess boards help with the wait time.
  21. You can put multiple bunk beds in a shared room.
  22. Put stages or pianos near clusters of patrons.  Random guests will start playing music on them and improves the rating of anybody nearby.
  23. I put lots of smoking couches in the gambling den not casino machines.
  24. Make sure you have plenty of handy men to clean the puke off the floor.
  25. My barmaid to table ratio is: 3 Tables to 1 Barmaid.

Conan Exiles: Where is Perilous Valley?

The Perilous Valley entrance is close to the Ice Bridge on the side of a mountain.  You will see a door.

This can be found on the map in E11.  Click the picture to view closer.

If you have your bracelet attuned to the ice bridge, use your map room and then go to the west.

PIMD: Spinner Items

How much should you buy / sell spinner items?

What are spinner items?

Spinner items are the things you can win only in the Spin game on PIMD.  You need to earn 100 points for one free spin.

Some of the items are rotated out after a few weeks and some are not like the chibis.

For the prizes that rotate:  You need collect the 4 themed items and have 5 of each one of the 4.  (20 all together) They will then combine and make one item.

Why collect these?

Each of these collectable spinner items are worth 5,000 in stats.  If you can collect the 20 and have them combine; it will be worth 250,000 in stats.

What are they worth?

Your first and best option is to trade other people for the spinner items.  Lot of people have extra spinner items that are willingly to trade for the spinner item they need.

Your second option is to buy one for a chibis.  I would not pay more than that.

PIMD: How to sell your dorm

How to sell your dorm:

First, I will explain what that means when somebody in chat is saying they are selling their dorm.

When a person wants to sell their dorm, this does not mean they want to sell their account, they are actually selling all the items on display in their dorm room.

To view these items, you would have to click the person’s profile and then use the “Enter Room” button.

To purchase or trade:

In order to purchase these items, you will first need to friend the person.

Open a chat with the person and hit the trade button.

Why are they selling their dorm?

Lots of people like to collect the whole dorm room theme and sell them for bentos.

It usually takes quite a bit of time to collect a whole themed room and it’s not easy.

Prices:

Whole themed dorm room prices will vary.  It will depend on rarity and what level the pieces are at.

Furniture items are usually exchanged for bentos.

The 499 & 999 items are going to be the most expensive.   999 items are a minimum of 15 bentos and higher.

I have seen 999 item go for 70 bentos.  (I think that’s too high though) but level does play a major factor in how much something sells for.

499 & 999 are also the hardest to obtain or win.

A 499 item is going to be around 10 bentos (maybe higher)

A bed or desk – around 2 to 5 bentos.

The items that don’t level up aren’t worth even 1 bento.  Those are the floors, wallpaper and some of the wall hangings.

The lamp, table, shelf, shelf items, chair and other floor item can usually start around 1 to 5 bentos (maybe higher depending on level and rarity.)
