Improved Quake (IQ) is a progs.dat mod designed especially for the classic Quaker who is getting bored of the all-too-easy monsters, or the very limited deathmatch selection. It's interesting that the abbreviation for this mod is IQ, because one of the main changes will be to the AI.

This mod does not feature strange extra features, or new guns, or weird add-ons, just some basic improvements that every Quaker will like.

This mod will include new features like slightly smarter AI, locational damage, and a few other surprises you'll have to discover for yourself!


Thanks for help (so far) to:

- Gave Shalrath a melee attack

- Adjusted monsters' healths and damages
- Much, much more!
