Threewave CTF Returns to Quake

Just in time for QuakeCon 2022, Threewave Capture the Flag has been (re)added to Quake, id's classic first-person shooter (thanks Bent). This modification first created by Zoid back in the day returns with updated versions of its original maps. Quake received an enhanced update from Machine Games almost exactly one year ago updating it for current systems. Likewise, CTF returns with some new enhancements. The update is available on Steam, and this post outlines what's new:
This latest version of Quake has been enhanced, with an improved flag status display showing if your flag is safely in base, team scoring, and a modern interface. The maps included have been updated with improved lighting and fog effects. All of this is included free in Update 4, and requires no additional download

Yeah, Glide was great. Tbh so many amazing Quake mods because 3D FPS inspired the world and the tools were easy to use. I made a few mods back in the day that were quite popular even though I was just a teenager. I miss the simplicity!

Threewave was the one that pioneered the four power up runes, right? Classic!

Oh man I gotta get the old LAN party crew to join up for this one night. We used to play the shit out of this at our LAN parties back in the 90s. So much fun.

Jailbreak and Action Quake!

Also in Q2 Capture the chicken and Freeze Quake / Freeze Tag (I don't remember the name any more).

Jailbreak was such a fantastic mod. There's a reddit community for Quake 2 that puts together matches every now and then and it's always a good time!

I never played threewave...

But in the spirit of talking about quake 1.. anyone remember the name of the map for Team Fortress Quake 1 where they spawned a ball in the middle of the map and 4 teams had to grab it and then go and put it into their net?

It was like Murder ball or Power Ball or something like that.

Anyone remember Jailbreak? That was another fun back in the day.

Oh shit, I am jumping on that. I spent so much time in CTF back in the day. Hunt: Showdown is the king of multiplayer these days, for me, but Threewave is right there.
Hunt: Showdown to me is like the culmination of the original FarCry multiplayer (semi open-world with lot's of foliage), Quake (simple but really great gunplay, dark aesthetics) and Thief: The Dark Project (best stealth game ever made) and a little Red Dead thrown in for flavor. That is why it works so well for us old guys lol.

It's like golf, but murder... BRUTAL fucking murder. I saw a statistic that suggested that only about 28% of people who have played Hunt: Showdown have even killed a single person. They are missing out, because stabbing a whole team to death, silently. Oh gawd, it's brutal and so satisfying.

YES! Threewave was AMAZING. Spent more time on CTF than any other game mode once it came out.

Anyone use the Quake 1 mod/map/whatever called Glide? It was a downhill racing game using Quake. REALLY good times with that.

I never played Threewave either. I played a variation of CTF called, I think, Expert CTF (a terrible off-putting name). It had additional features like points for assisting flag carriers. I might fire this up to try it out but I'm sure I'll get stomped.
