Here is "LDAQ4" (the blue theme-mod) featuring "Dark-Bloody Strogg-Kane" version 1.2:- (140MB)

a pic:-

and the following is the readme:-
LDAQ4 (blue texture mod)
for Quake IV (all ver)
v1.0 (070606)

- This is a mere texture mod that changes much of Quake IV's green
marine theme (characters, weapons, items) to blue. It's an extension of
my earlier "Dark-Bloody Strogg Kane" texture mod and as such includes
all of that earlier "mod" content. This is basically my own personal
"theme mod" being a blue fanatic, I've been obsessive recolourising a
fairly large portion of the Quake IV content, Strogg-Kane being the main
reason for this whole package. Quake IV really is a pretty cool game
and I hope some can enjoy it more with this theme mod. I would have
liked to have made a bunch of SP maps with this too, but I don't like to
think of how long that would take with everything else going on.

- Put the various PK4 files into your folder of choice, you can put
them into a \LDAQ4\ folder and launch it from the "mod" menu, or you can
put them into \q4base\ if you choose, it shouldn't cause any problems.
It may also be compatible with other mods that won't override the
textures or MTR files, but I haven't tested it apart from GTX Bloom,
Parallax Mapping and the bot mods, since all of the multiplayer stuff
has been affected by the changes. If some things are still green (like
the marine helmets) then run the mod with this command:-
image_useprecompressedtextures 0

============================== ------------------------------ LDAQ4 (blue texture mod) for Quake IV (all ver) v1.0 (070606) ...


I found the problem with your mod, that blue textures do not work, you have to modify the .DDS files not .Tga files, most are in the folder progming / downsize / models, please fix it, and tell me how to modify the hud? i need it to my mod Quake 4: A strogg revenge.

The Walker is one of the things I plan to fix for a small update to this mod. I'll add a lot more gray/silver in place of some of the pale greens that popped up during the hue shifting process. I'll also do my best to fix the almost unreadable vehicle HUDs although I've already spent hours looking through that stuff, I'll try again. Thanks for the comments. Any more suggestions on what to include/exclude/fix for the next update are very welcome!
