World of Padman PadMod for Quake 3 Arena


Today the modification World of Padman for Quake 3 Arena, also known as the PadMod, is going to be fifteen years old! The PadMod was originally released on June 18th, 2004 in a first beta version. However, the development started at the beginning of the year 2002 and was supposed to last only 9 months until the first playable beta version. But that turned out to be a total of 2 1/2 years. During this time, many felt called to help creating ENTE’s dream of an own Padman game, including well-known names from the Quake3 scene. Only a few really held their ground and above all thanks to ENTE and a hard core of PadMembers, that the PadMod got developed so far. Despite the many personal setbacks, they have never given up, they have laboriously worked out skills in many areas and in doing so they have raised above themselves. They have laid the foundation for the later stand-alone game World of Padman with great dedication.

To celebrate the day we rummaged in our archives again and put the still findable files of PadMod back online. You should go with the PadMod-final installers you can find here on ModDB for Windows and Linux.

Additional mirrors can be found on your dedicated PadMod download page on our website. All you need to play is an installation of the original Quake 3 Arena, preferably with the Point Release 1.32 & 1.32c and/or a recent version of ioQuake3. When it comes to ioQuake3 installation, take a look at the Players Guide!

Also during the last weeks we took the time to re-create the World of Padman news from the time of the PadMod development phase (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005). We talk here about more then 200 news postings which got restored mostly manually, partly with the original media content! Furthermore we put back online a whole bunch of WoP wallpapers and screen savers with more files to come. So check it out!
