"New Single Player Map By Sonik"
  posted December 26 - 9:50PM EST by Mr.Damage
Sonik has released a new single player map called KillSpree:-

"Single player, just one map.
open console, type "map vr_killspree". good luck, this one is tough.
i recommend playing some fast music while u play >:)
and no cheating!!! "

It's one map split over two levels. Make your way to the first switch to activate the elevator, then once on the upper level get to the switch to complete the map. The level only uses a few textures and it includes a custom skin for the thug. Its a tough level but you should be able to complete it in one session :)
Its only 73kb so why not download it now and give it a run.
Download KillSpree from here.



If you want to see one of the best SP map packs made for Kingpin then download Sonik's earlier work House Of Death part1 from here.

"New DM Map By Pencho"
  posted December 20 - 8:27PM EST by Mr.Damage
Pencho has released a new Kingpin deathmatch map called HLArena for Kingpin. This one is a conversion of a half-life map:-

"This is a conversion of a map for Half-life that gets a lot of attention down my end. I thought it would work well for Kingpin as well. I've added some kingpin style. The r_speeds are a little high as a result."

This is a small arena style map that has 8 player spawn points and is good for 2 - 8 people. It also includes a few custom textures.

"How Would KP Look In CoD"
  posted December 17 - 4:54AM EST by Mr.Damage
Whoop Ass made a test map using KP textures for Call of Duty to see what it would look like:-

screenshots of a kp test map taken from within Call of Duty. Due to the texture quality of kp and the player speed in C of D it is unlikely I will produce a kp textured map for the C of D game :(

Maybe someone can help with the texture problem but anyways here are a couple of screens of the map:-

"Two Bagman Maps Archived"
  posted December 15 - 3:50AM EST by Mr.Damage
I am still working through the many Bagman maps that (Inc)PHOENIX sent in a few months ago to see which ones we don't have in our Bagman map archive. Here are two more I have just uploaded:-

Team Dockside v21 by GraveDigger. This is a medium sized Baggy map where there are two multi-level bases which are seperated by a canyon with wooden huts, silos and water.
Download Team Dockside v21 from here.

Team Dragoon01 Beta3. I don't know who made this one but it's a small Bagman map where all the action takes place indoors. The texturing and lighting makes it really easy to know which side of the map you are in at all times. There are some nice Ancient Greek style symbols used to identify the team's bases.
Download Team Dragoon01 Beta3 from here.

"Wheelbarrow's RTCW KP Mod Update"
  posted December 5 - 6:18PM EST by Mr.Damage
Looks like Wheelbarrow is looking for some help with his Single Player RTCW Kingpin add-on:-

"Well, things are starting to settle down finally (whew!), and I'm slowly getting started again in the editor, but I gotta say, I still have had no response at all in my search for a skinner and/or modeller to help out with this project. Without this assistance, this project is going to grind to a halt I'm afraid. It's the only way to put Kingpin into the RTCW engine, so I'm hopefull someone with the know-how will contact me soon and offer their help..."

You can check out information on the add-on and screenshots of the work so far over at Wheelbarrow's Single Player Map Page and if you are interesting in helping out with the skinning/modelling you can email him here.
