OpenArena is an open-source content package for Quake III Arena licensed under the GPL, effectively creating a free stand-alone game.
The art direction of Open Arena is about "double" as Quake III Arena:
- double texture resolution, i.e. 512x512 as opposed to a 256x256
- double the polycount of models, instead of 700-900 you'll have 1200-2000 poly players
- Sound is probably mixed in 44khz rather than 22khz, but I dunno about that as 44khz seems to crash Q3A at this moment
Hopefully the detail should still be scalable with texture resolution and LoD's for slower computers (read: my p100 with voodoo2)
Concepts would be loose, so don't expect a remake of Klesk in his original Klesk form, or any direct remakes of any map/weapon/model.
