Modder ‘I-Iemn’ has been working on a HD graphics overhaul for the past ten years. And today, we are happy to report that this mod is available for download.
Going into more details, Q3A-Reloaded features high resolution textures, high resolution HUD and high resolution weapon skins. It also has customized shader effects, and re-designs the console/Main Menu. Additionally, it improves weapon and item sounds, and packs some modified feedback sounds.
According to the modder, this mod works with versions 1.11-1.16n of Quake 3 Arena. The modder claims that some people were able to run this mod with 1.32, though he does not know the exact method via which you can accomplish it.
In order to showcase the improved graphics, I-Iemn has shared the following screenshots.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
