Quake 3 High Quality Texture Packs?
 
I found my copy of Quake 3 over the weekend and decided to play a little bit of it. But after looking at the game with everything cranked up, it still looks like arse. Are there any tweaks or high quality texture packs you guys recommend to make it look better?

Just a tip, make sure you have r_picmip set to 0. As the default for the high setting is still 1, which makes them a little blurry.

Also make sure you have the lighting system set to 'lightmap' not 'vertex'.

Also put ansiotropic filtering and anti aliasing on in the nvidia control panel.

Quake 3 really isn't that bad looking considering its around 9 years old. I still play through the single player tiers once in a while.

Deathmatch games just don't get any smoother than Quake 3 IMO.

Cranking up the AA/AF really helped this morning when I was playing for a few minutes. I downloaded the Eye Candy texture pack but I have yet to install it. Anybody else have any recommendations?

How about you try what you have first. Stop being greedy.
