ericw-tools is a branch of Tyrann's quake 1 tools, focused on adding lighting features, mostly borrowed from q3map2. There are a few bugfixes for qbsp as well. Original readme follows:
A collection of command line utilities for building Quake levels and working with various Quake file formats. I need to work on the documentation a bit more, but below are some brief descriptions of the tools.
qbsp - Used for turning a .map file into a playable .bsp file.
light - Used for lighting a level after the bsp stage. This util was previously known as TyrLite
vis - Creates the potentially visible set (PVS) for a bsp.
bspinfo - Print stats about the data contained in a bsp file.
bsputil - Simple tool for manipulation of bsp file data
See the doc/ directory for more detailed descriptions of the various tools capabilities. See changelog.md for a brief overview of recent changes or https://github.com/ericwa/ericw-tools for the full changelog and source code.
