Archive of Custom Quake III Character Models

Back in the day, Polycount was the place Modelers gathered to discuss and share models.  As a result is was a treasure trove of models for Q3 mappers to utilize.  Sometime in 2006 the site changed and eventually the q3 community-driven content has seemed to all but vanish.  However, I stumbled across the IOQuake3 site again.  And much to my pleasant suprise I found a dump of the old Polycount Q3 character models!

And here's an archived page detailing how to create models for Quake 3 Arena.

Removing Sealed Site Columns from SharePoint Lists

You may come across an issue where you need to remove a site column from a Site Content Type associated with a list, which of course is not possible using the native GUI (no remove button).

Instead you need to use the Sharepoint Management Shell to remove the offending field.

  1. Logon to the SharePoint Server.
  2. Run Sharepoint Management Shell as Administrator
  3. swap out the following with your information and run it in Sharepoint Management Shell.
$web = Get-SPWeb http://host.domain/sites/sitename
$list = $web.Lists["List Name Here"]
$field = $list.Fields["Field Name Here"]
$field.AllowDeletion = “true”
$field.Sealed = “false”

If you are having issues, you can try double checking some alternate names of your field using the following:

$web = Get-SPWeb http://host.domain/sites/sitenamehere
$web.AvailableFields.SchemaXml | Out-File c:\temp\fields.txt

You will be looking for the correlating Field ID of your field name.  For example, if im looking for "Description", id find this string:

<Field ID="{34A72E09-3CA6-4931-B2E3-F81C40BB87BD}" Name="RoutingRuleDescription" StaticName="RoutingRuleDescription" SourceID="" Group="Document and Record Management Columns" DisplayName="Description" Type="Text" Required="TRUE" CanToggleHidden="TRUE" Sealed="TRUE" MaxLength="255" ShowInDisplayForm="FALSE" Version="3" Description="Provide a description." />
