Steam offers two branches. The main "stable" branch and the devtest branch.

You can swap between them with a very small download.

What is the beta branch
The latest (semi-finished) features released to eager players for testing. Only use the beta branch if you are familiar with From The Depths and want to help hunt for bugs. Expect from time to time serious game breaking bugs that might take a few days to fix. You may not want to permanently be in the beta branch.

What is the stable branch
Slightly older features (approximately one or two weeks) once they have been play tested and polished

Other notes
If you are planning on making a review / video then I'd personally appreciate you using the stable branch.

How to change branch
Right click "From The Depths" in your Steam library. Select Properties. Go to the BETAS tab. Select the development beta from the drop down list. Simply select "NONE" in this list to return to the stable branch.
Interesting, so I will stick to the unstable branch Big Grin
Same here Big Grin

Some opinions for the lasers: Very cool... but it takes veeeeery long until you get the first working laser...here is a good tutorial definitely needed!
Yes indeed ill work on the documentation and inventory layout in the next release. Have a look at the fortress I uploaded in the STEAM RELEASES thread.
