"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."
PlanetQuake.com: Polycount — Quake II Skins, by Frosty
"Quite a psychadelic hit squad we have going on here. I agree with Frosty, that the Thresh skin and the Terrorx are the best of this pack. I believe that the Thresh one is the best. The ctf_blue is just plain and blobby and the ctf_red is barely indistinguishable from the Terrorx. Personally I kinda like'em, even if they are kind'a strange in a busy strung out way."
PlanetQuake.com: Quake 2 Player Model Pack — Deathmatch Images
"Happy Saturday = Happy Weekend!!! Got skins out the wazzoo today, thanks to your hard-workin' Grunts.

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.
Quake II Star Wars! Model Pack
We're kicking off another model pack week here at PlanetQuake, and what better way to start it off than with Star Wars? Q2PMP has kicked up a wicked bunch of Star Wars models, and we sent LadyICE off to do all the searchin' for you and pull them all down for you right here. So sit your model-lovin' self down and get downloading!
