Is there a command that I can run in-game to open up more slots during a networked game of Quake 3 Arena?

Add this line to your server.cfg:

seta sv_maxclients 16

From here:

sv_maxclients 16 - maximum number of players on the server.

You can try using rcon to change this while the server is running:

/rcon seta sv_maxclients 16

..but even if that is possible normally, most hosting companies disallow that because you pay by the number of server-slots.
