Why would you want to go for max-sec for high profits from federal grants?
Just get yourself min-sec only and assign them to max-sec upon arrival.

Less risk+money from high risk group - abusing the game to the max.

I see, so basically you dismiss a feedback because you can abuse the game at this current stage? Well done, I'm sure this give many insights to the devs'.

/sarcasm:on

haha, i prefer to start the game, save it, edit the save file for maximum amount of cash and
build and run my prison. Well. I need no money, so there is no need for prisoners. So i need no guards and no cooks.

But this game is sooo boring, only having the workmen, janitors and such. Nothing really happens!
I think the devs need to bring in some more content, otherwise it is really lame !

/sarcasm:off

Abusing the game is often fun on the short sight, but never on the long run...

Yup, I am pretty much sure that I am free to do whatever I want with game as long as it does not violate legal law IRL.
And I highly doubt that abusing game mechanics is against law in my country.

Minimum Security prisoners have 0% chance of having the Reputation of Legendary, Strong, Tough, Volatile, Stoical, Fearless, Deadly, Cop Killer & Instigator.
3% Chance of getting Quick, Snitch & Ex Law Enforcement.

Where is this code from? If I look in the main.dat I can't seem to find any file that contains reputation data.

No one ever brought up violating the law- I have no idea how you read that into the poster's comments.

agree that min security try to escape too much, more than my other prisoners. Also agree that they make a good work force, but you cant sock the workshop with just min, because of the time it takes to learn carpentry. min sec are usually no in for long
