No. The minimum maximum is 4 scientists per topic (though the lowest Outpost 2 actually uses is 5 scientists).

Of course, you could just set the cost value to 1...
My advice is you just play the game the way it's supposed to be played.

WHY! I mean really, if people want to poke at a game to make it more interesting or difficult why stop them. This game came out about 10 years ago and i really don't see why you would want to discourage potential future hackers.

We don't. We want to discourage people who just want to make the game painfully easy.
We removed the cheats for a reason...

Yea, and that reason was they where accessible in multiplayer.   The fact that they where removed has NOTHING to do with people who want to make the game "easier".   To be perfectly honest, Hard is simply a level of excessive frustration, and I don't know of really anyone that can PROVE that they've beaten the game on hard.   And as for anyone wanting to edit the game to make it more of what they want to be, go for it!   But note that any such changes will invalidate your game, in other words, you won't be able to play with anyone else.   You'll have to restore it all by either reinstalling or replacing modified files.   Make backups if you don't want to reinstall!
Any small change will cause the game to desync and crash.

That can easily be done by saving the game prior to the win and archiving the save files.

The still leaves the question of where the saved game file originated from. Maybe they got it from someone else instead of making it themselves. They enter their nick after the win, do they not?


And yeah, go ahead and do whatever you want. I'm sure some of the less vocal people will probably have a bit of interest in it.
