the History of... addons
-----written in Quake era-----
addons: quake software that adds on new weapons, levels, models etc. the inherently modifiable quake allows users to create their own addons, through the use of quake-c and various editing programs.
      addons vary from serious efforts such as CTF to stranger addons such as Kill the llama. there was some debate about the use of the quake engine for commercial products -whether or not homebrew addons (not id supported) can be sold. try the quakec archives.

While Quake II addons are being released in droves, work continues, perhaps surprisingly, on classic Quake mods.
