does the 1.0.3 update update from 1.0, or will I have to download the full install again?

Download the update.

—Alorael, who suspects that the point of releasing an update download is so that people don't have to download everything again.

I'm not sure about that. If I remember correctly, there was no update from 1.0 to 1.0.1. Further, the tech support page says:
quote:

We have released a patch to upgrade Macintosh Avernum 4 v1.0.1 or v1.0.2 to Avernum 4 v1.0.3.

This seems to say that you can't upgrade to a full install of 1.0.3 from 1.0. However, it might still fix some stuff, but not all of the 1.0.1 fixes. It wouldn't have the new graphics, for example.

Yes.

Download the latest full install, backup your old save files, and install (then copy your saves back in).

Once you have a newer version than 1.0, any future patches you may need can be installed as any normal patch would be, but this one does need the v1.0.1 install minimum (the full download will be your only option).

EDIT: MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR SAVES FIRST, ELSE YOU WILL LOSE THEM!!!
