The crosshair is nice for aiming, but I find the original + console character is a poor method.

Some Quake ports implement a TGA/PNG crosshair graphic that can be replaced by the user (if desired). I personally like one bright green graphic that I created.

Presumably the graphical crosshair would be an option. (Someone may prefer the +.) Scaling would also be needed (as most user crosshairs would look best at original size, but some might need to be expanded or shrunk).

    TGA or PNG crosshairs require support for corresponding image formats
    to begin with, and that's something I still didn't do (I'm lazy I
    guess..) There's the "crosshair 2" mode for quite some time, but I
    guess that won't be as satisfactory.

    I don't think this would happen in 1.5.6. Noted for newer releases.
