Ymir The Research Overhaul Update: Bug Fixes, New Research System, and More

Ymir Steam

Ymir recently received a new update that fixed tons of issues and added new research mechanics. The addition of Research Points will save tons of time for players. Players can use population and research buildings to generate global Research Points, and these points can be stored for later use. You can spend them to speed up or instantly finish other projects.

The developers are also reducing the number of risks in projects. If players fail research projects, now it will just setback the progress, instead of making the project a complete failure. Additionally, if players fail a project, it gives an experience bonus that increases the odds of success on the next trial. These changes will make project failures more forgiving.
