"Lil_1v3 DM Map"
  posted February 28 - 5:57AM EST by Mr.Damage

Lil1 v3 by Hamma, Lil & Mr DamageDownload

Lil_1 was a map that Hamma and Lil created in August of 2000. Later they asked me to tweak a few things to try to make it a better map. I fixed a few problems and released Lil_1v2 and then changed some of the layout, weapon placement and added some crates etc for Lil_1v3.

Lil_1v3 map is a small one room fragfest map, popular on many custom maps servers due to its fast paced action. Although it is a one area map it still has lots of obstacles, ledges lob grenades from, a small structure in the middle of the map with armour, health and the HMG, some crates to climb on where there are weapons and other items, etc, etc. It's only a small zipfile so if you don't have this map already why not grab it now :)



Here are two screens that show the transformation the map went through from Lil_1 to Lil_1v3.

"P4R4D0X Looking For Help With KP League"
  posted February 17 - 4:49AM EST by Mr.Damage
P4R4D0X, a player who has been around since the beginning of KP, is looking at setting up a new Kingpin League. He is looking for help from someone with experience in HTML or any experience on how to create a Ladder site similar to worldogl.com. He is also looking for help from ppl to recruit players etc:-
I was thinking of making a
BM 5 on 5 League
DM 5 on 5 League
and 1 on 1 DM Ladder

My url is www.rivalturf.com (under construction, Im reading several books on Macromedia Dream Weaver) and I hope to get this kicked off within the next month.
If people dont have HTML experience, then help is still needed recruiting players into clans for the tourney. I plan on having a part of the site for people looking to joining clans.
All players from all walks of life are welcome. Also, for those clanless, I plan on hosting several clan pages for them on the site, something like www.rivalturf.com/yourclan just a brief page letting people know about the clan, contact info, and news about matches. Since not everyone has the time or money to invest in something like that.
Im hoping the League can be seperated by Alpha and Bravo Sections so UK and East Coast can play together.and Australia and West Coast can play together (or some type of arrangement).
If you feel you can help out then please contact him via:-
P4R4D0X/Brent
ICQ - 87307064
MSN - roadrunner1999@hotmail.com
AIM - PrepRunnR

I urge all of you to consider helping out as it will only take a few ppl to offer help and then P4R4D0X will be able to get a KP League up and running :)
