Official secondary release of Pwrguns v3. This MOD lead to the server side only Q3 MOD Powerweapons v4-v8, and currently Pro-Powerweapons v12. Credit to Firestarter for his teleportation code, to AdamW for the CVARS of Beryllium MOD, and many others already credited through Powerweapons. This MOD was client side, and required all players to download the game and have it in their Quake 3 directory. Honestly it's been so long since I took a look at this, I'm not even sure it will compile with the lcc free compiler I used to work on both these MOD's. I will not be releasing my own work on Pwrguns v4, but I invite anyone who may be interested to check it out. If I remember right, this had 30 alt weapon modes, and took Powerweapons Pro v12 to the level it's at now.

Little update. Ran into some amazing stuff recently. Added quaternion rotations... which in plain english means that the brass, the shotgun shells, and anything else I can apply this too rotates realistically. This led to bigger things!

Can't say much yet... mostly because I don't know if this is going to work.
I've been granted the use of some very interesting code from an amazing total mod, never before seen in q3! Pwrguns will never be the same, (crosses fingers).
Release may be as early as the end of the year, or perhaps by the middle of 2017. Whether the new code works out or not.

Update on quaternions. I'll be sticking with the original rotations code. Quaternions are very deep and I'll probably be needing a serious education on computer mathematics before I can work with them. Thanks to D-meat for letting me look at his source code!

Pwrguns v4 is on hold for just a bit. It's turned out to be a lot more work than I thought. I turned my attention back to Powerweapons v12, and through feedback, found that I wasn't finished. The current Powerweapons-Pro v12 will remain available for on-hand grapple purists.
The new Powerweapons v12 is going to have BOTH grapples simultaneously, thanks to a recent breakthrough. Will upload it as soon as it's finished, hopefully within a couple months, and go back to Pwrguns v4.

Back to work! Pwrguns v4 is coming. Hopefully without any further interruptions. No promises, but it looks like it could be soon. I'm going to set a goal of June. There's still quite a bit of work to do, as a couple technical hurtles held me up. They have been overcome.
