The G3D Innovation Engine, by Morgan McGuire — 3D Player Models for Quake 2

"The G3D Innovation Engine is a commercial-grade C++ 3D engine available as Open Source. G3D supports hardware accelerated real-time rendering, off-line rendering like ray tracing, and general purpose computation on GPUs. Its design emphasizes rapid prototyping and innovation, particularly of rendering and game algorithms. G3D provides a set of routines and structures so common that they are needed in almost every graphics program. It makes low-level libraries like OpenGL, network sockets, and audio channels easier to use without limiting functionality or performance. G3D is a carefully designed, feature-rich base on which to prototype your 3D application. The contributors span the graphics industry. The engine is primarily maintained by Morgan McGuire, Zander Majercik, and Josef Spjut at NVIDIA, Corey Taylor, and Michael Mara at Stanford University & Oculus Research. It includes contributions from professional game developers, CAD and DCC developers, students, industry researchers, and professors."

Brian “EvilBastard” Collins’ House of Models

Well, let's see... I would have to say it all started back in '72. That was the year I was born. Grew up in sunny San Diego, and ended up spending the first 23 years of my life there. I could describe them, but I would bore you to tears, so we'll just leave it at that. I attended San Diego State University, and worked as graphic designer extraordinaire for Woodstock's pizza, where I continually drew little dragons (the mascot of Woodstock's), until I accidentally graduated from school.

OZQuake: Fraggin Australian Style…

The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (202.139.41.242:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two.

Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27911), Wireplay (202.12.147.16:27999) and EISA (203.166.224.41:27930) being the pick of the pack.

GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.

Quake II LIVES!!
