  • editable surface properties: footstep and hit sounds, debris models, hit decals;
  • editable model properties;
  • mirrors on walls and water surfaces;
  • layered fog;

  • improved particle system, linking to alias models (monsters, items, etc…);
  • dynamic lights, linking to brush and alias models;
  • sun and lens flares, auto-flares for glow surfaces;
  • underwater caustics;
  • bloom;
  • multisampling for anti-aliasnig;
  • fullscreen effects: pain, underwater, mask, etc…
  • md2, md3, ase, sp2, sp3 (own format) support, iqm models in future;

  • personal gibs;
  • game modifications: fast rockets (like Quake), haste mode (double speed shuting), predator mod, monster respawn, drop backpack after die (like Quake), explosion knockback control, double jumps (like Unreal), etc…;
  • flashlights, invisibility item, flyQbe bot;
  • own savegame system for eliminate bug “Savegame from an older version.”;
  • renderer state saving with savegame: decals, particles, gibs, debrises, etc…;
  • optimized network protocol: packet compression, improved deltas, partial userinfo transfers, etc;
  • large maps support: map size expanded from 8192 to 32768 units;
  • anticheat system by R1CH support;
  • ogg vorbis and wav sound tracks, situation tracks;
  • 2d/3d scales hud;
