This is my blog called "Eat at medve's". It's a little modblog about my favourite mods and games, and some personal thoughts of games / gaming. Feel free to track the group, or subscribe to the RSS or my Youtube channel.
I’ve decided to make a big pack instead, including all the active mods and engine updates, community mappacks, hudeditors, custom texturepacks. I’ve updated some of the mod profiles and added a few to Q3/4.

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.
