MODDING IMPROVEMENTS
The following changes apply to users who may be developing add-ons that work on the PC version of Quake
  • Added the pr_checkextension cvar and checkextension (“QUAKE_EX”) function in QuakeC to detect if the mod is running under the updated Quake client
  • Added the cl_nocsqc cvar (it is permanently set to 1 to indicate to modders that CSQC is not supported)

  • Added FL_NO_BOTS edict flag (Instructs bots to ignore specified object(s) in QuakeC)
  • Added a QuakeC built-in for playing a sound on a client: void localsound( entity client, string sample ) = #80;

Added the following QuakeC built-in functions for drawing debug shapes on clients (these are intended to help mod authors visually debug logic in 3D space):

  • void draw_point( vector point, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #81;
  • void draw_line( vector start, vector end, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #82;
  • void draw_arrow( vector start, vector end, float colormap, float size, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #83;
  • void draw_ray( vector start, vector direction, float length, float colormap, float size, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #84;
  • void draw_circle( vector origin, float radius, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #85;
  • void draw_bounds( vector min, vector max, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #86;
  • void draw_worldtext( string s, vector origin, float size, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #87;
  • void draw_sphere( vector origin, float radius, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #88;
  • void draw_cylinder( vector origin, float halfHeight, float radius, float colormap, float lifetime, float depthtest ) = #89;
  • Added logic that resets AI state to neutral when activating the bot navigation editor
  • Added bot nav editor fullbright toggle key bind to F2
  • Added “CheckForFloor” flag to nav nodes (this can be used for drawbridges, floor traps, etc.)
  • Added “CheckForSolid” flag to nav nodes (this can be used for crushers, traps, movable walls, etc.)
  • Added ability to place nav nodes in shallow lava

Added the following cvars to change nav editor window positions:

  • nav_properties_xpos
  • nav_properties_ypos
  • nav_legend_xpos
  • nav_legend_ypos
