I'll replace all .lmp files with TGA alternatives and turn .pak files to .pk3. Make the job easier for modders.
Nice one. I'll DL tomorrow, but a quick question. Given that the ID1 maps are now GPL, did yopu decide to use them?
I'm not sure. Given that OQ uses DarkPlaces, I'll try to add new maps. I might also bundle the GPL'd ID maps, just for Quake's sake.

But as you say, OQ is a placeholder proyect. And as such, is very very very very usefull. I have made more than 4 standalone mods, probably illegal, merging a TC + the OQ files. A complete replacement of the files is of not use to me. Since I will replace these files by the ones in the TC, probably...
Yes, OQ will be a placeholder project. A GPL engine. I'm already working on version 0.3, and I'm doing some research for licensing. I really
intend to have it all

Like the "Netquake" community, ... these people would probably love to distribute a version of netquake with good models, and you are a excellent modeller, so your models probably beat some of the OQ ones, so these people will love to use your models. These people may not be interested in the engines and other files you may want to bundle, but will be interested in "eyecandy" stuff like better models.
I will surely add "eyecandy", within certain limits, all of them properly documented.
I will also add screenshots, I'll use all available engines for testing, and I'll write down anything.
It's still early, but it's been in my head for way too long. I want to have this free engine improved and documented and lots of other ideas.
There are many things that need to be filtered right now.
@mh: starting OQ2 with DirectQ gives a console error about not founding demo1.dem. Of course OQ2 won't have any demos, so is there any posibility of adding something to default.cfg to jump straight to menu?
