Today we have released a small update for QUAKE LIVE. As of today, several of the classically "premium-only" features have been cycled into the realm of standard-content for everyone to enjoy.
In the coming updates we will now be adding new features for our subscribers to enjoy, but we felt that now was a good time to begin making some of our long standing perks available to everyone who plays. In addition to this we've also included a number of small fixes and improvements.
Advanced Scoreboards, including a newly added Freeze Tag scoreboard
Quad and Battle Suit Kill Counters
Weapon Config Menu
Define your preferred order of starting weapons (cg_preferredStartingWeapon)
Force Team Skin and Force Enemy Skin options
New overhead teammate indicators (friendly triangles) that relay teammate health status
Reduced default cg_drawHitFriendTime to 100ms to better suit the new icon system
New teammate death icon to clearly distinguish hurt teammates from dead teammates under the new health icon system
Teammate crosshair names now use the same health color indicators as the new overhead icons
Don't display dead teammate icons in FreezeTag (as their frozen icon will be present)
Broadcast a power-up pickup chat message to inform you who picked up a freshly spawned power-up
Crosshair hit style now defaults to damage colors.
cg_drawCrosshair was defaulting to different values in cg_main and ui_main, they now both default to "2"
All clients will now use cl_maxpackets 125.
