Hmm, per pixel lighting looks nice :)

Could you consider adding something such as Toksvig mapping? Essentially, a specular exponent texture that avoids specular aliasing.

A lot of Id tech derived games have a very harsh look due to stencil shadow techniques and shimmery phong highlights, using a filtering technique like the one above goes a long way into updating the visuals, imo

Well it isn't planned right now but who knows, maybe i will add it later on when there is nothing else to do :-P. As for the shadows, soft stencil shadow volumes are planned for the future, i don't really like the shadow mapping stuff.. IMO soft stencil shadow volumes has way better quality visual wise.

I only wish there were a complete high quality texture pack for Quake 2 :/.

Edit: You can look at a old project that has Soft Stencil Shadow Volumes here: Imageshack.us

The soft shadows look nice, they're blurred in post processing?
