"Power Mod Update"
  posted March 31 - 10:21PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Hexen [A.D] has created and is maintaining the brand new Power Mod Website. He has now added a forum where you can go and discuss all things Power mod related. Of course one of the major things at this time is for ppl to post about any problems/bugs they are encoutnering with the bug.
Another good feature is the new servers page. If you have TiCaL's server plugin you can join a Power Mod serveer directly form the servers page :)

It's great to have a brand new KP mod isnt it so head on over and check out the site and if you havent already downlaod the Power files while you are there :)

"Small Problem With Mr Burns Model"
  posted March 31 - 10:14PM EDT by Mr.Damage
There is a small problem with the Mr Burns model where, in a certain situation, it can crash a server. Luckily it is very easily fixed. If you already have the model just go into your Kingpin/Main/Players folder and rename the Mr Burns folder from male_mr.burns to male_mrburns (i.e. remove the period/fullstop).
I have uploaded the model again with the new naming convention :)
If you don't have the model you can grab it from here.

  posted March 30 - 1:28PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Well Mr.Damage and I must have been on the same wavelength this weekend, because we both created map packs for our veteran/addicts.

Truzenzuzex[BC] last updated his monstrous creation in Sept-2000, it has been a long wait. MAP-PACK-N-YO-ASS (Update #12), which is released in six 10MB chunks (to be as friendly as we think we can be to the modem users).

It includes a total of 74 new or revised maps, which are listed here. You may also want to look at the complete-map-pack list covering the last 3 years for all the details. This brings the PACK SERIES total to 573 maps.

You can grab the files from here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6.

"Power Mod v1.0A Released"
  posted March 30 - 1:00AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Captain Death has fixed the bug that was found in v1.0 and has now released v1.0a of the Power mod. In the interim Teamk9 were able to finish up another map for the mod called K9UTKP-Power which is included in the download and Hexen[AD] finished up some hud icons and conbacks. There are now eight maps included by Teamk9, Whoop Ass, Butane (aka Propane), [YFS]omnI, me and Velvet Jones.
Everyone has done a great job on this mod, the code, the skins, the maps etc. Its worth mentioning also that without Captain Death this mod wouldn't have gotten to release stage.
You can download the mod from our mods download section here or from gyrocorp.
There are server files (4.9Mb) and client files (13.8Mb). For all the mappers there is also a power def file so you can add the control points, hired thugs and weapons dealers to your maps.
You can visit the new Power mod website here although it is still to be updated by Greyfoxx.
Captain Death is running the first Power mod server and the details are - Captain Deaths Power V1.0a Server (217.39.162.113:31513) so go and give this mod a try.

What's happening with the Speedway mod? Well it needs some new maps, and some model work done. Syl^cs is working on the models, vehicles and riders etc, and hopes to be done in a couple of weeks time.
The mod needs some maps though, so if your interested this is what Hogie says you need 'make your map fairly big with some nice straights and curves. Places where people can pass you or get behind you to line up a shot. The mod is team based, and each team gets a point when one of their players completes a lap. The maps needs to have 3 check points in it, which are triggered by trigger_multiple enitites.'
Hogie plans to get some doco together soon.
If you are going to make maps you can reply to the Speedway forum post here.

There are the two bases and a bridge crossing a large lava pool. You can grab it from FileFront. It is in .rar format so you will need to use something like Winace to extract it.

"Another New DM Map By Me"
  posted March 14 - 3:58AM EDT by Mr.Damage
In January of 2001 Cujo released a conversion of a Half Life DM map called Dogpound which had been made by James Sheibal. Cujo kept that Half Life feel by using HL/cs textures. I liked this map and I thought it would look good in an Urban style setting. After speaking to Cujo I decided to go ahead and do it. I have totally retextured it, added some standard KP props (fire barrels, boxes, shelves etc), totally changed the weapon, item, armour placement, added another stairwell, and removed all the spawn points from the top floor where the HMG and RL are :)
Don't worry I added more to the other two levels.
If you don't know the Dogpound map its a three levelled arena style map. I have made it so the shotty and tommy are on the ground floor with half armour, the middle level has the same weapons and the GL as well but no armour and the top floor has the HMG, RL and full armour >:)
The r_speeds are a tad high in one or two places but nothing to worry about. Thanks to Whoop Ass for going through the map and fixing a couple of things and lowering the r_speeds a bit.
You can grab Dogpoundv2a from here and a MM Levelshot from here.


"New Map By Sonik"
  posted March 14 - 3:36AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Yay, Sonik has released a new DM map called Iron_Nads. In the words of Sonik "it's kinda like the Half Life level where you can call an airstrike, but in a different environment. You can downlaod it from here. You can also download a Monkey Mod Levelshot from here. Sonik has just finished updating his site so make sure you drop into Sonik Level Design

Btw, the Half Life map Sonik refers to is Crossfire which was converted to KP by CireP as KPCrossfire and can be downloaded from here or here.

"Monkey Mod 1.40b Released"
  posted March 12 - 5:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Changes from monkey cds 1.40a to monkey cds 1.40b

- can't pick up cooler if you haven't used your old one up

type curselist in console to see all the taunts

* deathmatch scoreboard change

"New DM Map By Me"
  posted March 12 - 4:26AM EDT by Mr.Damage
In March of 2001 {PMV]Thief released a small DM map called Circle of Death. It is basically a one room map with mainly wood textures. Over the weekend, while taking a break form some other mapping projects, I got the idea to make an urban version of it. So, after speaking to Thief, I totally re-textured it, added several new areas, new sounds, added more weapons and items and have now released it as Circle of Death2. Its still a smallish map but it has 12 spawn points so should go ok on your server :)
I have included a Monkey Mod Levelshot in the zip file.
You can gab the map from here.

"FileLeech Back And Now Clled FileFront"
  posted March 12 - 3:49AM EDT by Mr.Damage
My favourite file download site is back :)
Fileleech is back and now called FileFront. It's another place for anyone who makes stuff for Kingpin to submit their files to. Check it out it's good.

The latest Kingpin file they have there is a small 1v1 deathmatch map by MoBxSkull (called Small Deathmatch 1). Actually there are three versions of the map in the zip. This map has been rotating on Captain Death's servers for some time. So why not head on over to FileFront, have a look around and grab the map.


"New Version Of KPDM5"
  posted March 11 - 3:55PM EDT by Mr.Damage
A request was made by DirtyDog{WC} to 'urbanize' KPDM5 and Whoop Ass took up the challenge. Whoop has now finished his reconstruction of the map and you can grab it from here.
When I first heard about this I was a bit worried that it wouldn't look too good because of all the arches and such in KPDM5 but it has turned out looking great. If you have any comments post them in our forum here. The topic starts off talking about Sandstorm's Serious Sam version of KPDM5 and moves on to suggestions about making an urban version :)
Btw, I have uploaded a Monkey Mod Levelshot for this map which you can grab from here.

"Sanctuary Update"
  posted March 7 - 2:38PM EST by Mr.Damage
Wheelbarrow sent along some news of progress on his upcoming Single Player map pack called Sanctuary.

It looks like there will be almost 20 maps to play thru, ( I'm still building, so I don't have an exact number yet, but the end is near), plus cut-scenes tying it all together...(voiced by the multi-talented Dirty Dog and family/friends). There are heaps of new sounds, some new textures and skins, and I'm estimating the download zip file to be around 25 - 30 megs..(the new sounds/voice files eat up the space). I hope to be finished in about 4 weeks at the most, but as always this is totally dependant on how it all shapes up...and how severe the testers are :)

You can view a heap of screenshots by visiting his webpage Wheelbarrow's SP Map Page.

"Monkey Mod 1.40a Released"
  posted March 7 - 3:48AM EST by Mr.Damage
TiCaL found a fw bugs in the 1.40 release of Monkey Mod Server files so he has fixed them and released Monkey Mod 1.40a.

Changes from monkey cds 1.40 to monkey cds 1.40a
* finally fixed a crash bug in linux with teamname commands
* now you can see your killers health after you die
* added support for cannons in bagman maps so you get frags if
you use them and kill someone

Rev.6c Client File is still current.
You can grab the 1.40a Windows and Linux server files and the new source code from here.

Now if you read my previous post you will know that Monkey Mod now supports map voting levelshots so I have created a directory in our Custom Maps Downloads Section for levelshots. So ppl please start creating some and send them in. Instructions for creating Custom Map levelshots can be found here.

"Monkey Mod 1.40 Server Files Released"
  posted March 6 - 5:51AM EST by Mr.Damage
Big News! TiCaL & Monkey Harris have released a new version of the Monkey Mod cheat protection mod. It has a heap of new cheat protection and some other features such as:-

* map voting levelshots
- when voting for a map you can see its levelshot bellow the choices
NOTE: You need to have a levelshot for a map to see it.

* weapon bug fix
- when the match has finished and if you had a weapon out it won't
stay frozen anymore. It will disappear from the screen.

* fixed a crash bug in linux with teamname commands

* score stays
- now when you switch teams your score stays

* clear score
- to clear your score type: clearme

If you visit the Monkey Mod Website you can grab the latest server files for Windows and Linux, the latest client file (rev.6c), map levelshots for the default Xatrix maps, the 1.40 source code and you can read about making your own custom map levelshots.

Btw, two things about the Monkey Mod worth noting:-
If you don't uncomment "kick_dirty" in the comp.ini then ppl can connect to your server without using the client file and will still be able to use cheats that the MM protects against.

There is a DMFLAG value in the comp.ini file to disable bunnyhopping. All you do is add a value of 64 to your DMFLAG total.

Hopefully servers willstart upgrading to ver 1.40 straight away so we can have a bit more protection against people who are so insecure they feel a need to cheat :(

Make sure you have the latest client file which is rev.6c so you don't get kicked and plz spread the word to your KP playing buddies to make sure they have it as well :)

"New 2 on 2 Shotgun Map by Cujo"

Cujo has just released a small arena style map good for 2v2 games called 4v4shotty. It uses textures from Serious Sam and the only weapon is the shotgun. The map has four spawn points so thats why I think it will be best for 2v2 :)

"New Czech Map Pack"
  posted March 6 - 4:18AM EST by Mr.Damage
A Czech Gaming site called GameZone have released a new Kingpin map pack - GZmappack3. It contains 10 DM maps and 2 Bagman maps of which 6 are new maps by Czech mappers.
There are three maps by Oracius which are conversions from the Single Player game (Skidrow, The Sewers & The Super).

RakiDM1 by Raki is a nice looking map set on a construction site (r_speeds are a little high)

SkicaDM1 is a nice little DM map with a teleporter to get you to the HMG and some armour. A couple of little bugs though like you can get caught on the wall lights because there are no clip brushes and there is a window at the end of a ledge that would be good if you could jump into and out of.

HausDM1 is another small/medium DM map with lots of areas to frag in. One little annoying thing is there are places with steps but you cant climb the steps unless you crouch.

Looks like the next wave of Czech mappers has arrived :)

The full list of maps are:-
  • Blanco HQ by Sonik
  • Deck16 by Viagra
  • The Edge converted by Nico
  • RakiDM1 by Raki
  • SkicaDM1 by Skica
  • Skidrow converted by Oracius
  • The Sewers converted by Oracius
  • The Super converted by Oracius
  • The Yard by Gizmo
  • HausDM1 by Haus
  • BunkerWar by Cybopat (Bagman)
  • Team Poisonville Slums by Don Corleone
