Loki Announces Quake III Arena Tools.
Loki has announced and released a test version of the Q3A tools. These tools are used to create maps and modifications. Click the topic for press release and download site.
We proudly announce the beta release of Linux SDK for use with Quake III Arena.
The full version of Linux SDK will benefit Linux enthusiasts and aspiring game developers alike by allowing them to create maps and game code modifications under Linux. Windows users have had this capability since the release of the original Quake game.
Linux SDK offers Linux users a toolchain for content creation. It combines software for image processing, conversion and editing with a fully-featured map editor compatible with the Quake III engine. The features include custom texturing, lighting, patches, shaders, entities and more. It is based in part on the QERadiant code from id Software, Inc.
The beta software can now be downloaded from ftp://ftp.lokigames.com/pub/beta/q3sdk. The README contains important information on system requirements and known issues.
Enjoy! -Loki Entertainment Software
