Prototype Info


Portal Item

Q3TA-portal.png
Q3TA-portalmodel.png

There is a holdable item that is a functional placeable teleporter. The first activation places the exit, and the second activation places the entrance. The only art for it that still exists is an icon and a model with two textures where it is referred to as a porter instead. It even drops the flag if you're the carrier trying to go through it.

The portals can be shot and can be destroyed. Entering a portal with a destroyed exit will kill the player.

It may have been cut due to a lack of development regarding the grief potential of recursively using portals as a ball of death.

Texturegrab Development Map

If you look closely, you can see 3 different skyboxes at once!

The purpose of this map was to gather all textures used by Team Arena's shaders for inclusion within the PAK building process.

Consequently, as part of the process, it grabbed itself and ended up packed.

Unused Voices

There are several unused lines in the voice scripts. The actual audio files remain, but the lines are simply commented out.

Demo

The demo which came out shortly before the final doesn't have many interesting differences to warrant a subpage.

Levelshots

Uncompressed high quality levelshots for Q3DM1 and Q3CTF1 exist despite not appearing in the demo. Quake III Arena only has these in JPEG form.

Unused Voice Clip

Male1 has an "I'm just flying here" clip not referenced by any voice file.

Early Choice of Font

Before it was settled on Impact, they used Kenyan Coffee. These commented lines are removed in the final.


	//hudShader "ui/assets/hudbar.tga"		// 
   	//font "fonts/kenycb__.ttf"				// font
   	//smallFont "fonts/kenyc___.ttf"				// font
    font "fonts/impact.ttf" 16				// font
    smallFont "fonts/impact.ttf" 12				// font
    bigFont "fonts/impact.ttf" 20				// font

This is how the game would have looked with that font.

Mr. Elusive Map Shaders

A whole shader file referencing nonexistent textures attributed to Mr. Elusive (AI programmer) exists. They appear to be testing shaders.
