"New DM Map"
  posted November 29 - 2:12PM EST by DirtyDog
I've just completed a retexture/relight/rebuild of that old classic DM map, Fortress. The original had r_speeds that reached 2400 in many areas so I had to make a pretty significant change in the design however the r_speeds still reach as high as 1100 in some areas but it still runs fine. Download it from here: Urban Fortress

"New DM map by DreaD"
  posted November 25 - 7:49PM EST by DirtyDog
DreaD has just released a retextured/re-lit version of Quake 1's classic DM map, A Bad Place. This is a request I asked of him after seeing what he did with Quake 1's other classic, A Place of 2 deaths I simply had to ask. DreaD is a meticulous and detailed mapper whose work is classic and his result with A Bad Place reflects this. Download this from here: A Bad Place and check out A Place of Two Deaths while you're at it :)

"Another New DM map by WhoOP_AsS"
  posted November 19 - 11:26PM EST by DirtyDog
WhoOP_AsS has just released another DM, this time it's a retexture of Quake II's classic: Frag Pipe. This was a request I made to him that he retexture it using Kingpin's Industrial theme (kpdm2) and WhoOP pretty much ran with this and came up with an excellent result. The map looks excellent. Great lighting, sharp texturing, (it is, after all WhoOp_AsS ;) Download it from here: Frag Pipe Industrial

"New DM Map"
  posted November 16 - 1:44PM EST by DirtyDog
I've just finished a complete retexture/relight and in many cases rebuild of the classic Quake2 DM map: The Edge. This one is entitled The All Mighty Edge. Originally as a request from (@m)LuSHy I decided to simply just tribute this map to the (@M)All Mighty crew in general (check them out here: All Mighty )as I have been a fan of theirs for some time and they are a die hard, long time crew of fraggers. Download it from here: The All Mighty Edge

"New DM map by WhoOP_AsS"
  posted November 16 - 1:23PM EST by DirtyDog
WhoOP_AsS has just released a new DM map entitled LiFe. It's a medium to small map using KP's classic (and my favorite) Urban Theme. It's very well layed out, no dead ends and some really nice touches. Rooftop fighting; abandoned building fightin; lots of fun with this map. Whoop's a long time mapper in our community and his work is exceptional. You can expect sharp lighting; detailed texturing and a smooth layout. Download it from here: LiFe

"More Screenshots Of Deck16"
  posted November 14 - 4:23PM EST by Mr.Damage
Creamator sent word that work on his rebuild of the Unreal Tournament map Deck16 is progressing well and he sent along some more screens.

"Rockvill Map Revised"
  posted November 13 - 6:43PM EST by Mr.Damage
A couple of years ago Cujo did a partial conversion to KP of a popular cs map and named it Rockvill. He re-textured it using what cs/hl textures were availble in KP at the time which gave it a whole new look and feel. After Pencho converted all the Half-Life textures to KP I decided to have a go at remaking the map using the original textures and sky. I also did some rebuilding of the map in a few places, changed the weapon and item placement, and added a couple of custom sounds. Hypov8 also helped out by doing the lighting for this map and other general tweaking.
Download Rockvill Rev from here

"Cylon Thug Skin"
  posted November 13 - 6:30PM EST by Mr.Damage
I read yesterday that the old 70's sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica is being remade. The bad guys in that show were an army of droids called Cylon Warriors. There is a Cylon Warrior thug skin so I thought this was a good time to highlight that particular skin. Unfortunatley I don't know who made this skin.
Download the Cylon thug skin from here.

Btw, themap in the screenshot is Jedi Arena by Whoop Ass.

"Crates In The Hood Map Released"
  posted November 7 - 9:58PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have just released another DM map which is called Crates in the Hood. This is a medium sized map set in a warehouse district full of crates and containers. It is a conversion of a Quake2 map by Shon Shaffer "Maric", one of the best and most prolific mappers for Quake2. It has one main open area which contains several containers and boxes and a number of warehouse building and rooms which contain more crates. It is a multi level map and you can also access the roof. The map has ample weapons and other items. It uses many custom textures which fit right into the Kingpin theme, has a custom sky and includes custom sounds. Hypov8 also helped with the map, working on the lighting and helping with the r_speeds and general tweaking :)

"U2 DM Map Released"
  posted November 7 - 9:36PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have released a new DM map called U2. This is a small, classic style, DM map converted from Quake2. The original was made by Lars "SLiTTER" Gutkind and I thank Lars for giving permisison to convert his map to Kingpin. Its a simple designed, fast paced map, with ample weapons and other items. It has two main little buildings connected by corridors, several bunches of crates located in the outside areas of the map, and it also includes a teleport.

A friend asked me to make him a map with just the HMG and RL so I made a version of this map with just those weapons and have also included it in the zipfile. This version of the map is named u2_rlhmg.bsp.

Download U2 from here
