Post news Report RSS Quake 1.5 - update

Hey guys, welcome to the first official media update for Quake 1.5.

Posted by on

Welcome to Quake 1.5, today i'd like to showcase a few of the new features of the upcoming mod

The first is the level selection menu

The level selection menu is accessible during normal gameplay by hitting the backspace key - scans your maps folder for levels and updates accordingly so you no longer have to use the console to load custom levels or change maps in a server


This menu scans your client's maps folder for all installed levels and lets you change to any you'd like. You can just tap enter and it has the same effect as typing in the console "map ", a convenience feature for those who install a lot of custom maps, hitting the HOME key takes you to this screen:

Server options for the map loader, this allows you to start MP games with customized mod-specific settings - includes the new CTF gamemode as well as the coop lives mode. Also allows you to start botmatches with frikbots


Here is the server menu, which allows you to control your typical multiplayer options as well as mod related options, such as enabling life-based survival for cooperative play and cycling custom gametypes - this has the added advantage of letting you select any map you want unlike the vanilla menu.

Onto media and gameplay additions, one of the biggest of which:

Capture the flag support has been added along with a swinging grappling hook - CTF supports any of the classic Threewave CTF maps, and it can also be played on vanilla SP maps (though not all as SP map support is currently unfinished)

Capture the flag support! CTF was built from the ground up with custom HUD elements, and it supports ALL the classic Threewave CTF maps so there's already a large catalog of maps to play. Bot support is included though it is currently rudimentary and they mostly either defend, roam the map or follow the player.

CTF also works on vanilla single player maps though support is rough, for instance E1M2 is currently not functional as a CTF map.

Another custom gamemode for the cooperatively inclined:

Cooperative lives option, respawn where you died, pickup megahealth to get an extra life for all, or escape the level


Notice the number at the top of the screen - that's your life counter. Server hosts can customize the amount of lives each player has

Death screen


Once you run out of lives you cannot respawn until a live player picks up a megahealth, or finishes the level

You respawn where you die (unless it's in a hazard like lava) and other players cannot steal your backpack.

A recent addition for Quake purists, centered weapons!

Showing off the alternate centered weapons option, accessible through the mod menu


All guns now support being placed on either the right or centered, with tweaked animations to match, accessible straight from the mod menu:

Hope you guys have enjoyed this update! The mod is mostly where it needs to be and is in the playtesting/bug hunting stage, expect more details on a beta release soon!

Some more general media, since I'm sure you guys want more bloody details:

Wow. I really dig those new weapons and animations. Can this mod be combined with arcane dimensions?

Two different code bases so it can't be without manually being combined, and even then AD's code is reformatted differently from Quake, so it would take a lot of tweaking. I did port and remake some AD features/enemies so there is some overlap, so you could play some levels with varying degrees of success.

The centered weapons will have a drop in versions that should work with AD though

**** yeah! This is the mod for Quake I'd like to play so much.
Just some questions:
-What about the Mjolnir from Scourge Of Armagon?
-Will be there also new weapons (like Ogre's Chainsaw) as well as the new enemies?
