    I would prefer if there were a background process that ran and kept my installation up to date and also seeded the patch for others; instead of being stalled with an updated each time I want to play.

    Yeah, running this as a service in the background would be pretty cool.

    Steam will update SotA in the background (unless you're log'd in and playing).

    steam gets MUCH bigger patches than the standalone patcher. if you're doing it in the background maybe it won't matter...

    Yup, if you let Steam begin at bootup - then it catches the patches as soon as they're avail and downloads in the background.
