Source Ports

Recommended to just read this.

Quakespasm (Spiked, fork with extra features) are the primary options. Configuration can be found below. Darkplaces can't run many mods, but is an alternative.

For Quakeworld multiplayer, ezQuake is ideal. nQuake is a preconfiguration of the former with some minor enhancements. FTEQW is an alternative, as is QRACK.

The official Steam release is done in the Kex Engine (Nightdive Studios) and also a good remaster. Also comes with the old Dosbox versions they used to sell and a horde mode.

Additionally, Quad Touch ports the engines to Android, LibreQuake is an alternative to having the actual game files, and Quakestarter is a bundle of stuff to make playing and managing addons easier.

Utilities

Quake Injector makes downloading mods and maps easy. Simple Quake Launcher 2 makes launching mods and maps easy. Qtracker is a server browser with a cool aesthetic, but I'm not sure it works nowadays.


Maps

Honey is a descent into poisoned sewers, and an official addon. Beyond Belief is an E1-style episode.

Copper is a vanilla+ style gameplay refinement. Quoth adds monsters, items, and other stuff. Arcane Dimensions has new monsters and breathtaking environments. SUPERHOT Quake turns Quake into that time-based shooter. Quake 1.5 is a weapons mod with a few extra features. Slayer's Testaments is a total conversion demake of modern Doom.
