Costa Rican Sunset is a great little deathmatch map by Sonik from a few years ago. This is a fun map set on a Costa Rican beach. It has sea, sun and, with a few people, blood stained sand :)

"Small Patch For Night Work At The Factory" posted December 13 - 4:46PM EST by Mr.Damage
Felikkz7 has released a small patch for Night Work At The Factory:-
Patch 1.1. Correcting possible issues in chapters 2&3 when playing in NOVICE or EASY levels A complete NightWork v1.1 will arrive later.
You can download Patch 1.1.it from his website here.
Btw something I forgot to mention in my earlier post is that you don't have to kill every thug in the game. Some fights are just too tough to win and the game is designed for you to run away or run past the bad guys.
Night Work is now also available for download from GameFront.
"New 3Team Bagman Map" posted December 13 - 6:16AM EST by Mr.Damage
I have released a map for the 3Team Bagman mod called Final Fight. This map is a remake of a Quake2 3Team CTF map. It's a smallish map with the three bases (Dragons, Nikkies and Cops) which all connect at the central cash drop area. There are plenty of weapons and other items, ample player spawns and mostly Kingpin standard textures.
There is also a 3Team mod server 3 Team Oldschool Deathmatch Mod! 126.96.36.199:31513
"Kingpin On Sale At GoG.com" posted December 13 - 5:52AM EST by Mr.Damage
After the last sale at GoG.com they raised the price of Kingpin to $9.99 US. Well it looks like it is on sale again for $4.99 but I am not sure for how long. So if your looking for a copy don't delay and head on over to Good Old Games and pick up a copy now.
"Modding Tutorials" posted December 13 - 5:45AM EST by Mr.Damage
Fredz showed me this link to a massive amount of modding tutorials. They are for Quake2 but, as Kingpin is based on the Quake2 engine and very similar, its a good place to learn about coding for Kingpin. Check the site out here.

"Night Work At The Factory Released" posted December 6 - 8:28PM EST by Mr.Damage
It's here! Felikkz7 has now released his new Single Player Episode for Kingpin called Night Work at the Factory.
In his own words:-
An add-on for KINGPIN the famous FPS. With a real scenario and many cutscenes. With a lot of new materials, textures, dialogs and original musics. With puzzles, platforms and intense fights.
So, everything we can expect for Kingpin
This add-on has been in production for over ten years so you can expect high quality. It's massive and so you can expect many hours of entertainment. I would say it's similar in size to the original game.
There are eight chapters all set in a different location. They include train yards, coal works, steel works, warehouses and a country estate.
This is oldschool gaming and is very challanging though so it's nothing like this lol.
My advise when playing is to look everywhere in the map. Don't rush to the end as you will miss a lot, like that one health bag or the shotgun ammo or even the key you need!
If a window/door/grate won't open try smashing it and did I mention to search everywhere :)
The inclusion of quick save and quick restore keys is a very welcome inclusion.
Make sure to pay attention to the custscenes as they really help progress the story along.
Make sure you read the User's Manual which is included in the Night Work download or you can download it separately from Felikkz7's webpage here.
"Two Deathmatch Maps From 2010" posted December 6 - 6:01AM EST by Mr.Damage
Two of the DM maps that were released in 2010 that I like are Trash Metal and -=Deadthings=-. They are both made by Stigma.
Trash Metal is a small DM map set in an old derelict area where there are lots of ruins of old buildings and many crates, barrels and boxes strewn around. There are two corridors that stretch down either side of the map. The map is set in the evening but there is ample lighting. The map has enough weapons and other items and has some very nice custom wall textures. It also features a few single player props and the rain weather effect.
-=Deadthings=- is a small, arena style, dark and moody, DM map. The main focus is a two level structure in the centre of the map and also two streams of water that criss-criss in the middle where there is a cooling mod. There are four structures around the edge of the map which you can jump down into to get some good items. There are ample weapons and items, some custom textures are used and Stigma has included some single player props and weather effects.
