question: is there a plan to include q3a gpl textures in next release? so far admins have to do the "hack" and include this file in their servers to solve the missing textures problem with most of q3a maps. it would be nice if this pack is included with openarena, or if that's not an option, at least some "dummy" textures are created to fill in the void.

GPL textures with other gpl resources is perfectly fine. This should definitely be in next release.

The full pack created by Speaker & fufinha/missbehaving?

I don't think those can be in the next release.

"Detailed" is nice, but if it gets in the way of clarity, it ceases being a nice addition and becomes a problem. - TVT

no, the one you referring to is more recent. there's another one that's been floating around for at least a year... see link on top. it says "gpl" in filename so i assume it is so.

Ahhhhh, ┬┐jackthompson's flat texture pack?
Well, he didn't submitted them for commit, so... I still don't know yet. Tongue

no because they are derivative from the textures.

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

then how about the other alternative? dummy textures that fill in the void?

You can check here to see what the plan is: (DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Roadmap#0.9
It's really sad that Speaker and Missbehaving on one side and the OA team on the other cannot get along. The textures they created look very nice. Having replacements for all the Q3 textures would allow playing a lot of maps. This is a no-brainer.
