On the first day of the new year, the Smokin' Guns team released version 1.0 of their total conversion based on the Quake 3 engine. This was formerly the Western Quake modification for Quake 3, but since the open sourcing of the Quake 3 engine it has been made into a standalone game:
Smokin' Guns is intended to be a semi-realistic simulation of the "Old West's" great atmosphere & was developed on Id Software's Quake III Arena Engine.

This total conversion includes completely new weapons created with historically correct information about damage, rate of fire, reload time, etc. It also includes new gametypes and maps inspired mostly by movies. And to increase the feeling of a "gunslingers atmosphere" we also created music tracks and sounds adapted to this time period.
More information and screenshots on our game page, and you can download the client for Windows and Linux locally from AusGamers.

Hrmm if this is the same guys that did the original western shooter I use to play on the q3 engine (thats about 6-7 years ago) thats pretty good that there still going.

Ah wait just read the 'about info'

"The Smokin' Guns game started its life under the name of Western Quake³. It was originally developed by a team known as Iron Claw Interactive. They released WQ3 beta 2.0 in 2003, after which development all but ceased."

Good stuff that the project was continued. WQ3 was a great mod.

Why does the Smokin' Guns link point to this thread? Wouldn't it make more sense for it to point to here?
