Title: EntityPlus

Anyone tried this mod for q3? It adds entities (duh) and singleplayer gameplay but the enemies are just reduced, scripted bots so far.

It doesn't support multiplayer, so no coop action. There's only 3 maps available for it, one very inspired by portal.

Heard of it, but didn't try it.

Last year I was working on a similar thing, using player models for monsters, and I converted two Quake1 SP maps.  But I never finished it, monster AI and physics are difficult to do (even when adapting the Quake2 code for Q3 engine).

p.s. now that OA 0.8.8 is done, I might do a bit more work on it and post a demo.

Pretty impressive! You can even make cinematics, voice overs, and unlocking items! Also, the use of an infinite teleporter item for Phobos boss was very interesting.

Their tech demo is clearly a success, this project very promising.

@andrewj: your project seems to be very interesting too, please continue and post a demo!
