What is Chilling Spree?
Chilling Spree is a deathmatch mod for Quakeworld that focuses on user friendliness and lots of game modes to try out. It is intended for having fun playing Quakeworld with new twists of the game instead of playing the same three modes all the time.

Chilling Spree features fourteen game modes in total, nine of them which are unique to the mod compared to KTX.

Download from github

Servers: - Kill The King (with maprotation) - Head Hunters (with maprotation) - Casual team modes (cspree modes) - Normal competitive modes (1on1/2on2/4on4) - Duel Arena

Enjoy, and wreak havoc!

So I wonder - if I was to set up new servers at some point - would people be okay with the ftesv/cspree combination or would they play elsewhere instead? Just wondering. And if the later what would need to change so they remain on the cspree one?

I also wonder this, feedback is much appreciated on what would make a cspree package be viable for players.

I wrote a blog entry on the future plans.

an installer script for linux like nquakesv is what i need.... if i put cspree on the servers here in aus then people will have no choice but to use them as there are no alternatives

Can you define what you need? I have never used nquakesv so I don't know exactly what you need.

To get a default solution you do:

Download the 1.0 release.
Unpack into quake-folder (pak0.pak/pak1.pak in id1/).
Unpack default_config.tar.gz.

That will get you five ports running in the same fashion as the servers I run.

There is a but it could be worked on, where you can setup ports sort of easily. Needds feedback though.

Nice to see dedicated game modes servers
So we can avoid that annoying start menu stuck in the face, that also dont let people prewar and play around
