So, i've seen a bunch of folks asking 'how do i update?!'

Here is your answer:
If you are on steam, it does it automatically.

If you bought it through the humble store, you have to go back there and re-download it.
You can check your humble page, or the original email they sent you when you bought the game.

run a search through your emails for 'terratech'.

it's from <contact@humblebundle.com>
and is titled "Your TerraTech order is ready"

If you've lost/wiped it, just go to your humble profile page.
You will find a steam key in the same place, so, you can just attach it to steam if you want.

Hopefully this will help some folks. :)

might want to add that for steam you have to ahve the beta Downloads option set in the game list properties (right click on the game list/game) so it can install them

I think you may be wrong.

i had to do that for experimental canary builds, but not for regular updates.

fyi - I saw there was an update:
http://terratechgame.com/about/release-notes/

went into steam, and it said "the update is scheduled for 2:00pm" (which was like +5hrs)
I clicked "download now" and in seconds I was playing v.10! horray.

So Steam IS automatic, but you can make it happen asap.

Generally they'll ask you if they like your contribution to the forums.
I also imagine that if they think they're short, they'll put out a call.

If you really want in, email jamie, and if he likes you/thinks there's room he might pick you up.

Keep in mind, the build you get on monday is somewhat de-bugged after the weekend.
The canary builds are even more buggy.
On a good weekend, it's the same as the monday release.
on a bad one, it's all but unplayable.

Def don't bother unless you like writing bug reports :p

:)

I would like to add that steam will not alway do this automatically in the case of laptops (at least). You may be required to close steam then reboot. On many occasions opening a laptop lid resumes from sleep or hibernate which does not always log steam back in within a reasonable time or at all. Simply close and reboot steam if you know an update should be or is out.

kittycat, unfortunately the last update for the non-dribble(steam) path is the 1.0 release version, the only way (now) to get later versions is the dribble(steaming piles of ###########)
