87                                 <p>With an advanced UI the user can select between over a dozen different player models with an average of two skins for each and can connect to our master server to play people from all over the world. The game's content and source are released under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/"><span class="linktext">The GNU General Public License (GPL) is one of the most common open-source licenses and was the license id Software chose to release the Quake1 engine under </span>GPL</a>, meaning it is entirely free and any of it can be used in other free projects, even if modified. This is a first for any large game project of its type. We hope this will support the free game community and encourage more GPL projects.</p>
