    Community made addons/scripts #2

    Community work
    Quake fans have been coming up with interesting and helpful content that gives Quake Live even more depth and more competitiveness. The community has created sites with Quake Live oriented content, sites like QLranks. They have provided us with ladders for gamemodes like Duel, CA and TDM. Crafty individuals have given us user scripts like Quake Live Stream Notifier, which displays live streams above the quakelive page. All community made addons/scripts are unofficial and are not developed or supported by id Software.

    These are just a few useful tools to make this community stronger and more intertwined with it self. To find out more about the community made content scroll down the list and see what has the community prepared for us:

    Duel Commentary Video - by Memento_Mori
    Colection of videos, where Memento_Mori explains every information a duel player recives in a lenght of a duel match. The best kind of guide is a visual representation of the problem and Memento_mori takes it even further with commentating on his own decision making while he plays his match.

    Quake Live NA pickup games
    Nice useful page with an in-build irc client, so its super easy for anyone to join and !add to a pickup game. The channel is called #qlpickup.us @ QuakeNet. It also gives information on how to get voice communication working so team communication is at its best. Here is a small paste from their site about explaing how a part of the pickup proces works:

    Pickup Game Procedure:
    • The pickup bot will randomly pick a server location if server voting is not enabled.
    • Servers are spawned by players with pro accounts. For a list of these players, type: !findpros
    • The bot will randomly assign captains, or alternatively, the two most experienced players will be captains.
    • Captains meet in the middle of the map and pummel each other with 100 health / 100 armor.
      • The winner of the pummel battle will pick the first player AND also gets to pick the map.
      • Pick order: one pick per turn
    Like in every situation it is welcomed to behave properly and not lameout, ragequit and so on...

    Quake Live tdmpickup.eu
    Similar site as Quakepickup.us but on this site/channel you only play TDM games.

    A small quote from their site:
    1. The topic always shows current game and number of players.
    2. To add yourself to a game: !add tdm
    3. To check who is already added: !who
    4. To remove yourself from all games: !remove
    5. If you're added to two games and one starts, you will be removed from the other automatically.
    6. If you disconnect or leave channel, you will be removed automatically.

    Quake Live EU pickup games

    Statistics page for pickup games played. You can sign-up for a pickup game on irc.quakenet.org @ #playquake. Here is a snippet from playquake.in page explaining a pickup game:

    What is a pickup game & how is it different to a normal game
    A pickup game is not dis-similar to a clan game, the key difference is simply that you’re playing with people from different teams – and individual players – but you still play in a format that you would use in a clan match. Other reasons that pickups are favoured are:
    • Quickly and easily play a ‘proper’ game
    • Play with fair teams (sometimes teams are one sided but hopefully not often)
    • Play with more players of your skill level
    • Community love.
    Again i must stress out that this games are played on a higher level then public matchs. Also bad behaviour is not tolerated and can get you banned from the channel.

    Scripts are made to help users get various information from other useful sites (ie. QLranks displays your elo number on Quake Live page) or simply to customize and/or gives new functionalities to the Quake Live site.

    Does anyone remember all the cool models? Like that big golden minotaur, the crazy mad scientist in the wheelchair, the southpark kids, bobafett, or HARLEY QUINN!?
    Also, remember Lithium with the amazing offhand hook that you could tune to just the right send and pull rate so that it was like flying gracefully through the air and railing someone in the ass at the same time? With the quad damage AND the vampire rune at the same time!
    Those two things I want again. Get to work. ;o)
