I've just downloaded Steam for OS X, I have a slight problem in that I don't really have vast amounts of space to install games to my boot volume (160GB SSD drive). Does anyone know if it's possible to select a different drive to install games to?
and for those of you who risk drowning when attempting to eat soup I made a video going over the short part of it.Move your steam folder to the desired location
open up terminal and get ready to use your mac like a man (sorta).
type in "cd /Users/<your user name>/Documents/" (the home location of "Steam Content" by default
you can do this by draging your documents folder into the terminal window after typing "cd " (note the space) but we are doing things the manly way.
press enter and type "ln -s /paths/to/Steam\ Content Steam\ Content"
NOTE THE SPACES. yet again you can do this by drag and drop just note that there is a space without the escape character \ in between the folder your linking and the link its self.
this should help if you have any questions about procedure.
Video is hard to see. Can't make out text entered in Terminal window. Also can't full screen it.This is copy pasted from an email i sent out durring the beta and it would seem that this worked for most people

and thus ends my effort
ln -s /Games/Steam /Users/<your username>/Documents/Steam\ Content
ln -s /Volumes/GAMES/SteamMac /Users/username/Library/Application\ Support/Steam (symlink [U]Steam[/U] now points to [B]SteamMac[/B])
ln -s /Volumes/GAMES/SteamMac/runic\ games /Users/username/Library/Application\ Support (symlink [U]runic games[/U] now points to [B]SteamMac/runic games[/B])
I don't think any single file will be bigger than 4gb, although I've seen it on WoW.FAT32...? That will get sticky with bigger games
Yes please, I would like to know how to do that.
Ahh!! I feel like I'm about to explode!
Please, please help if you can - appreciation in advance for anyone who has pity on me.
That's the thing, I've been dragging in the relevant folders the guides have suggested, but still it's not working.
