I'm starting to play Quake II (and its expansions) again but was wondering if there was a good mod out that updated the game a little. New models, textures, sounds, whatever. I know there are ALOT of options out there, but I wanted to narrow the search some with a few opinions of which ones give Q II the best "facelift".

Yeah, I know its sacralige, but it really is starting to show its age. :p

Thx

There is one in particular that was mentioned here in the past week or so. I'd have to search the forums here to find it. It looked really well done (updated water, improved textures, better weapons effects, etc).

No problem, I got a kick out of it. :D one time, this guy at a pizza place asked for my name. I told him "Clay". He then proceeded to write down "Clik" and said "pizza ready for Clik". :rofl

Everyone keeps linking to Quake II Evolved's old site. The current site, with the most recent version is at:
http://www.quake2evolved.com

Yes, it's still in development.

:D about time someone linked the new page I was about to do the same thing.

I might give Quake 2 another go after I finish quake 4 :)

Thanks. Good to know that the old site still links to the current version q2e_v040.zip though.

I played some quake2 for nostalgia today... I was suprised at the graphics actually... the lighting still looked very good :)

The AI on the other hand, wow, its amazing how far that has come, the AI in quake2 is.. well, laughable. Its funny how normal it seemed to me way back when :)
