The main EgoVenture functionality is distributed as Godot addons. Addons can be simply updated by downloading the new version and overwriting the existing files.
Warning: If you use EgoVenture, you should never change files inside the following folders to be able to update to newer versions:
Before you start updating make sure, that you have a current backup of your game. Also, read the release notes of all intermediate releases from your current version to the version you want to update to. You can find the release notes in the following places:
Especially look for notes regarding dependency updates (e.g. From EgoVenture 0.24.0 on, Parrot 0.7.0 is required)
To update, switch to the Godot AssetLib view:
Then, search for the addon you want to update (EgoVenture, Parrot or Speedy Gonzales):
Click on the name of the Addon (EgoVenture in this example) to see some information about it:

After that, click “Install” and the update will be installed.
