Who all run the unstable version? I run the released version and thought about switching over to the unstable version. Can you switch back and forth? Will I have to start over on the unstable version? Is it more fun??

About 5% for TerraTech players use the unstable.

You can switch back and forth freely (I do it quite a lot). See instructions here.
How to switch beta branches
1. Right click TerraTech in your steam library
2. Select Properties
3. Select the 'Beta' tab
4. Click the drop down menu and select 'tt_unstable'
5. Close the tab and then you're done!

The next time you launch TerraTech you will be launching the latest unstable build. If you want to switch back, follow the same steps, but choose 'NONE - Opt out of all beta programs'.
The main issue is that you can never open a save game in an older version of the game, so you can't go back from 1.0.0.7 to 1.0, for example. You'd have to wait for 1.0.1 stable, to get off the unstable branch with your campaign. You can pretty much always go forwards fine, though.

Snapshots load fine in older versions of the game (provided they have the blocks involved).

Another issue is that the location of save files was moved recently, but that won't be an issue going forwards.

Most people on the Discord server play on the unstable because it gets newer content sooner. It's no less stable than the stable version in my experience. It does though rarely have major bugs such as wireless charging breaking, but I've always played unstable and survived fine. I would recommend playing on the unstable version.
