So I've decided to go ahead and release all the ammobox stuff I've done over the years. I've compiled them all into neat packages for your convenience.
These all come with normal maps and specular maps. For these to work, you need to use the latest ioquake3 build which you can get from here: http://ioquake3.org/get-it/test-builds/
These skins look best when using ioquake3's OpenGL2 renderer, with the following cvars: r_cubemapping 0; r_deluxemapping 1; r_deluxespecular 0.3

First are reskins of the original ammo boxes. My goal was to create high quality versions of the originals, to maintain a faithful look to the original
These are made from scratch by me in photoshop. Only the emblem on the sides is reused.

Next is a redesign of the original ammo boxes, for those that want a bit of a refresh. I made these myself in Photoshop.

Next are the original ammoboxes from Quake 4. These are not edited in any way.
They are exactly as they appear in Quake 4.

Next are the reskins of the Quake 4 ammoboxes that I made. I made these myself in Photoshop as the original skins you see above, are very low quality.

And finally, I reskinned the Quake 4 ammo box model to be more faithful to the original Quake 3 ammo boxes, for those of you who would like an update while maintaining the original look.

There we go. A nice consolidated list of the mods i've made over the years. Im done now :P

hey, that is really cool! i just installed them and they look great. i like how you didn't change the design but just improved the resolution. i agree about the plasma color thing. the only problem is i am so used to purple by now that it looks weird as blue. i keep thinking i'm about to pick up BFG ammo.

you should do all the entities in HD :)

Yeah... just installed them as well... they give my AEblocks map that extra freshness in look. Very nifty.

I've done all sorts of stuff, just never released anything. Alot of the stuff I have is converted from Quake 4 as it looks alot better, like the health for instance.
I have redone some of the 2D elements, like weapon icons and HUD numbers, so I might release those.
I also did an ammo box skin in the style of the Quake 4 ammo boxes.
Alot of it is scattered around my hard drive so i'll have to repack it all before I release any of it.

Those are the Quake 4 style ammo boxes I made. Although the skin is 100% made by me, the model itself is from Quake 4, so I probably won't be allowed to post them here.

Fun fact: in the q3test days, the plasmagun itself was purple as well and fired purple blasts. They changed it for some reason, but not in time for the instruction booklet to get an update as well, so the PG in the instruction booklet is still purple.

maybe they had the intention of making the plasma ammo blue too, but never got round to it in time...

Wow, love the remastered railgun! The YA is also very amazing.

But the ammo boxes looking kinda wierd. Reminds me of gold foil covered satellites: Mars_Reconnaissance_Orbiter_fully_assembled.jpg
The edges standing straight without any damage, while the surface seems to be very rough. Maybe invert the nomal map?

Did you made by chance a grappling hook skin yet? I'm searching for such a skin and found only the QL one. :(

as far as im aware, Quake Live is the only version of Quake 3 that has a proper grappling hook skin.
I have all the assets from Quake Arena Arcade on xbox live, and there is no Grappling Hook skin in that...

As for the ammobox skins, yeah I agree they do look a bit weird being all lumpy and stuff. I think my Quake 4 ammobox reskin looks alot better:

your ammoboxes are great .. the YA looks very attractive in the pic, I was wondering if when you release the armor for YA and RA skins, if you were going to do one for the green armor as well to go along with them..since a lot of the cpma maps have the GA in them

that would be great =) I use Quake 3 Edawn(1.32e) instead of IOQ3, and it has the GA in it so you can play those maps in vanilla Q3 rather than having to use CPMA/OSP for the GA to show up in those maps.

Link in original post updated for the Quake 4 ammobox reskin. I think i'm pretty happy with this now, so i'm gonna call it finished. I'll update the others in the coming days.
