Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished.

About Eat at medve's with 15 comments by medve on Jan 27th, 2013

I’ve promised Quake 3 mods… I lied [insert evil laugh here]. Unfortunately most of the mods are kind of dead, since the active players have gone to QL. You can see people tho in Q3: if they can hit a moving target they go play cpma duel, if they can’t hit a moving target… well… they still have excessive plus with bfg spamming. To be honest, e+ has a lot of extremely good features, and people use it to this. Simply waste of code. But good news, I’ve updated some of the mod profiles and added a few to Q3/4.

Anyways, I’ve decided to make a big pack instead, including all the active mods and engine updates, community mappacks, hudeditors, custom texturepacks…and after packing all that should be necessary, a 3gb of raw community stuff was zipped into one bigass file. I’ve enabled the hd texturepack, and bloom (!), and Q3 seemed really sexy to be honest. So I thought it’s time to make a vid of all the proper graphical updates for the Quake series:

Epsilon: A standalone Quake 1. Totally legit and awsome work. Pure community stuff, also they have added retextured oldschool mods. Fckn A

Berserker: It’s a bit buggy (at least the 1.36 version I tested), but looks really neat, especially the water. I will upload the new 1.38 full version in the days, and gonna make a Maverick Servers mirror, cause the moddb servers are working at twice the speed as they used to, cause the european players are now not equal to other nations on the world, and they are not allowed to download stuff from Filefront (i mean Gamefront). Seriously eu players, shame on you for living there.

Excessive Dawn + Metal Tech + HRCCTRP (High Resolution Creative Commons Texture Replacement Pack Is Not A Practical Name For A Texturepack): Excessive dawn guys have made an excellent 64bit exe for q3, also they implemented bloom from Alien Arena. I’ve merged the other two texturepacks to one, and changed some ugly textures (like the black railgun, or the weird jumppad) = profit

Sikkmod: We all know the ups and downs of the sikkmod, but it’s still better to play the singleplayer, then without it…them glares are really sexy.

Anyone remember a TC for Quake 3 Arena called Painkiller? I can't seem to find it anywhere anymore.

Never mind, I just found out it's actually called Pain Keep Arena, and that Painkiller was actually the name of a bot in the first map of its solo ladder mode.

I agree that this is one of the best FPS I've ever played.. though Duke3d was super fun in MP... What I'm finding is that games that are supposed to be simple (Just kill the other guys) has become complicated, and in that process a lot of the fun of the game has been lost...
I've been playing some UT2k4 and I still go back to Q3 when I really want to have fun without endless frustration

There are a lot of mods for this game I don't understand why no one has thought of a Halo or Assassins Creed mod for this game

No second triggers
Less tactical (i.e. no biorifle or shock combos - though the Prox Launcher in Team Arena comes very close to a UT3 Bio Rifle)
and most importantly imo for the sake of flow that no one ever mentions

getting shot doesn't mean a critical loss of velocity, instead, velocity is ADDED. Someone can rail you off course.

This was my first fps game on PC, most of the fps games I played before it were console based which were the awesome 007 games and they happened to use the ID Tech 3 engine also ironically. :P

A day just isn't complete without a match of Quake 3. id definitely did something right, considering this game came out ten years ago, and so many people still play it.

Quake 3, is without a doubt, one of my favourite games. This game is amazing. I can play it offline for hours and hours without getting bored. The bots are great, and quite challenging on higher difficulty settings. The weapons are well designed but the machinegun was really crappy. Making stuff for this game is really easy and makes the game even better. There isn't really a storyline to the singleplayer campaign. But this isn't much of an annoyence. I found the maps to be very fun, especially…
