Other quake3 mods

@dGr8LookinSparky asked me to make a list of quake3 mods that have an active forum. So far I found:
ioquake3: https://ioquake3.org/
iortcw: https://github.com/iortcw/iortcw (very active on github but I can’t find a website or forum for them. It is a single player game based on quake3 code).
Urban Terror: https://www.urbanterror.info (very active and has forum).
Spearmint: Spearmint - Video Game Engine (forum can be found at: https://forum.clover.moe/ )
Exessive dawn: http://edawn-mod.org/ (check out latest improvements at excessive dawn • View topic - Quake3 1.32e )
CPMA: https://playmorepromode.com/ see youtube clip down on page for more info on features.

Quake3 Programming Discussion Forum: Quake3World.com • View forum - Programming Discussion

Dead but maybe useful:
Quake3-fortress: some development tools can be found at: Q3F - Power through Teamplay
OpenArena: OpenArena EX - オープンアリーナ (been years since last release but forum still active: OpenArena Message Boards - Index )

Dead and probably useless:
Freeze Tag: some quake3 mod which code can be found at: Freeze Tag Might be used as a base for a trem mod.

Ps many more live and dead Quake3 based mods can be found at: Mods - Quake III Arena - Mod DB

I hope this you will find something useful at at least one of above so you don’t have to ‘re-invent the wheel’.

See you in game,



Thanks @GPF ! I’ll definitely be reviewing these :slight_smile: !



I forgot to add World of Padman to my list. You can find it at: https://worldofpadman.net/
They have a game mode called ‘Capture the lolly’ which has turrets and proximity mines. Can’t remember seeing bots stuck by the turrets but I think I remember seeing comments in their source code in German language.

Have fun reviewing !


I play UrbanTerror from time to time. They have a very active community and many crowded servers. The game hardly changed over the many years, although they had some major client revisions. They must be doing something right!

I played WorldOfPadman once or twice. It’s hilarious and very weird! Gameplay is also very different.

Thanks for the research @GPF! :slight_smile:
