Advice For The Young At Net...
Okay, good thing happened. After over 5 years of relying on other peoples machines or, latterly, internet cafes, I now have my own broadband connection from home. Woot, yay and so on.
This may seem incredibly dull to the 1337 amongst you, but it's still a rather new experience for me.

The thing is, now I have the opportunity to dl a lot more stuff than previously ( although I'm still very limited in my HDD space ) and play online, I don't know what I should go for. I tried getting Quakeworld last night: Fileplanet told me I was -6 in line and my dowload would take -82 minutes :/
There must be a ton of stuff I've missed out on over recent years ( Nehahra being an obvious example ) but I'm looking for recommendations.
I'm not asking for a definitive history, just personal milestones. What are the maps/mods/tools/custom engines etc. that YOU think are worth getting? What's the stuff that stands out in the community? What floated your boat, lit your fire or manipulated your vertices?

Enthuse away...

for what game? 
Nitin 
Quake 1/Quake 3, whichever is more important to you. 
Kell 
welcome to the wonderful world of unlimited porn. 
Yes 
I think wrath just highlighted the most important thing that you have been missing out on. 
Kell 
I'll look through my cd's when I get back home for q1/q3 stuff. Any other games you're interested in (Unreal/UT sp stuff, HL sp stuff, RTCW, q2 etc). Also you interested in just maps or player models too (for q3)? 
Umm 
Good grief, do you think so?
I have a flatmate who's rather pleased my machine is online: could that be the reason?
And I thought ztn3tourney1 in CPMA was going to be the highlight... 
Nitin 
I have quite a few custom models for Q3A including Lobo ( great character ) and Magdalena, which I wrote proper botfiles for. But any others you think are 'must have'. You don't need to provide dl links or nuthin, just the name and game and I can probably google the rest. 
Kell 
You should play Nehahra if you havent already.

And go to LvL and download the Top 50 ranked maps. ;) 
Hmm 
ztn3t1 in CPM?

Ahahaha!

(Sorry).

Check out the PQ lotw for important releases (especially Q1, although you should have them already). 
Kell 
of course you should have everything reviewed on TeamShambler :)
planetquake.com/teamshambler 
Oh And 
as for the custom engine - www.celephais.net/fitzquake is the way to go. good thing it's resides here behind the corner :)
