Rocket launcher as work of art
For now, the best way to experience the Quake2 weapon hi-poly remodel is on sketchfab. Spinning these lovingly-crafted models around will have you itching to try these babies out in-game. What was once just a couple pixels of textures is now a ‘real’ grip, button, or trigger. The worn-smooth edges and metal scratches are especially nice. Keep an eye on this one! Made [email protected] and q2xp, or other source port with IQM support.
Quake for Google Cardboard… sure… but on iOS ??
This fabulous mash-up was fashionably late to the Expo, but it’s made a splash. What started as an experiment to port vanilla Quake to MacOS and tvOS led to a “what if”? Android was getting inexpensive but effective VR with Cardboard, so why not iOS? Slip & Frag for iOS was born. Get it for free on the app store.
Quake found on Saturn
Rich Whitehouse is well-known by modders for his model conversion and viewer tool, Noesis, which supports a mind-boggling array of game model formats. But Dick’s Dreary Quake Hole proposes a big new challenge of Noesis: import of Saturn Quake format levels for saving to standard Quake bsp levels. Saturn Quake wasn’t a port so much as a reconstruction, including original levels. Stay tuned for progress on this task, and maybe a new release of Noesis. In the meantime, enjoy this, um, mushroom-wielding mod ‘Midgets’ from Quake Expo past.
