    A lot of us use SteamCMD to update our servers, and it's not immediately obvious how you're supposed to change branches. It's really simple, you just need to add the -beta argument. Here's part of the update script I run on my server:

    Code:
    c:\steamcmd\steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir c:\spaceengineers\ +app_update 298740 -beta develop +quit
    If, for whatever reason, you're using the steam desktop client to get your server files, right click Space Engineers in your library, select properties, then the 'Betas' tab. Select 'develop' in the drop-down, then hit close. Steam should download the new files automatically.

    I worked with the CEO of my provider and they now offer a drop down list selector in the ACPLAYER control panel under steam update. its really cool.

    No im not name dropping the provider i just said the name of the control panel i have to use to admin my server, ACP stands for "Admin Control Panel"

    That is the appID of the dedicated server. It doesn't contain the full game so it's a smaller download.
