Quake1   Globe  

MORNING STAR is a modification for Quake made by Mike. This modification primarily is designed for the Morning Star, though some custom death messages are also included. Included among the collection is a custom death message for Chthon, a boss that was not given a proper death message in the vanilla game.

Pressing impulse 112 shall result in the message "Program by Tatter_D!" being displayed.

An alternate Server version of this modification exists. The only difference is that there are no custom models or sounds, thereby making it compatible on servers without clients needing additional files.
