Site Update – July 9, 2014


By SyncError

Today we have released a small update for QUAKE LIVE. As of today, several of the classically “premium-only” features have been cycled into the realm of standard-content for everyone to enjoy. In the coming updates we will now be adding new features for our subscribers to enjoy, but we felt that now was a good time to begin making some of our long standing perks available to everyone who plays. In addition to this we’ve also included a number of small fixes and improvements.

Features moved to Standard accounts:

  • Advanced Scoreboards, including a newly added Freeze Tag scoreboard
  • Killbeep Sounds
  • Quad and Battle Suit Kill Counters
  • Weapon Config Menu
  • Define your preferred order of starting weaposn (cg_preferredStartingWeapon)
  • Force Team Skin and Force Enemy Skin options

Game Updates:

  • New overhead teammate indicators (friendly triangles) that relay teammate health status
  • Reduced default cg_drawHitFriendTime to 100ms to better suit the new icon system
  • New teammate death icon to clearly distinguish hurt teammates from dead teammates under the new health icon system
  • Teammate crosshair names now use the same health color indicators as the new overhead icons
  • Don’t display dead teammate icons in FreezeTag (as their frozen icon will be present)
  • Broadcast a power-up pickup chat message to inform you who picked up a freshly spawned power-up
  • Crosshair hit style now defaults to damage colors.

  • For the nostalgic ones, added the original Q3 crosshairs: 20-29
  • Minor fixes to the UI/HUD files
