   LDAQ4 (blue texture mod)
    for Quake IV (all ver)
     v1.0 (070606)

 - This is a mere texture mod that changes much of Quake IV's green
marine theme (characters, weapons, items) to blue.  It's an extension of
my earlier "Dark-Bloody Strogg Kane" texture mod and as such includes
all of that earlier "mod" content.  This is basically my own personal
"theme mod" being a blue fanatic, I've been obsessive recolourising a
fairly large portion of the Quake IV content, Strogg-Kane being the main
reason for this whole package.  Quake IV really is a pretty cool game
and I hope some can enjoy it more with this theme mod.  I would have
liked to have made a bunch of SP maps with this too, but I don't like to
think of how long that would take with everything else going on.

 - Put the various PK4 files into your folder of choice, you can put
them into a \LDAQ4\ folder and launch it from the "mod" menu, or you can
put them into \q4base\ if you choose, it shouldn't cause any problems.
It may also be compatible with other mods that won't override the 
textures or MTR files, but I haven't tested it apart from GTX Bloom, 
Parallax Mapping and the bot mods, since all of the multiplayer stuff
has been affected by the changes.  If some things are still green (like
the marine helmets) then run the mod with this command:-
image_useprecompressedtextures 0
