"DM Map Added To Archive"
  posted March 28 - 2:50AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Dock City by DestroyerDownload

Here is a map I haven't seen in several years. It's a smallish DM Map set in a harour town which also includes a pyramid :)
There is a lot happening in this map and it's like the mapper just put every idea he could think of into it. Its not bad but it just feels a little cluttered.


"Should Cheaters Be Exposed"
  posted March 26 - 9:35PM EDT by Mr.Damage
A controversial subject eh? The discussion of cheating and cheaters in online gaming is always a hot topic. Everyone here at KP4ever is 100% anti-cheat and there has been a forum topic open for the a long time suggesting that Cheaters Should be exposed. It has certainly opened up some healthy debate on the pros and cons of this suggestion. If you would like to read the post and add your comments you can view it here.

I have brought this topic up because I am hearing that people are leaving KP due to the amount of cheating that is currently going on (especially with wallhacks), and because at least one KP league has been postponed or scrapped due to concerns over cheating. There is also the issue that the Monkey Mod has not been updated for quite some time.

Several ppl have let me know about their concerns about recent events such as this forum thread in the [RMD] forums here where a player has been banned for allegedly using a wallhack. Again it leads to some interesting discussion and there is a link to download a demo (in mpeg format) which you can d/l and make up your own mind.

There is no room for cheaters in KP and I hope that some time in the not too distant future TiCaL will find time to update the Monkey Mod to at least combat some of the current cheats.

"Sam's New Mapping Place"
  posted March 26 - 6:49PM EDT by Mr.Damage
As you probably know by now SAM Owens is working on a single player mappack for KP. To this end he has created a Kingpin page at his website to highlight the upcoming mappack. Currently it has one tutorial and an alpha map of the second level which you can download and check out. You can visit his webpage, called Ahumado's Lair, here.

You can post feedback on the alpha level in this forum post here.

"New DM Map By Cujo"

KP2 Omerta by CujoDownload


Cujo has released a new DM/KP2 Mod map for KP called KP2 Omerta. This one is a medium sized, two level urban styled map converted from counterstrike. Cujo has used all KP textures, added plenty of weapons and items and elevem player spawns.

"New DM Map By {GT}Knight"
  posted March 23 - 4:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage

KP Citadel 2006 by {GT}KnightDownload

This one is a smallish arena style map. It's very colourful and mainly utilises the KPDM5 texture set and uses a custom sky. It is set in a citadel, there is a fountain in the centre, you climb up vines to access the roof area and there are large statues around the edge of the map. There are ample weapons and the map even has large birds flying around lol. The map is very detailed and thus the r speeds are high in some places.



Btw, if you read this {GT}Knight, please remember to upload those server files you said you would send me.

"Solid Snake Male Model"
  posted March 22 - 5:55AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Solid Snake by TiCaLDownload

The Solid Snake player model, (of Metal Gear Solid fame) was converted to Kingpin from counterstrike by TiCaL and Tanyacheex way back in late 2000. It has full KP viewable weapons and animations and comes with one skin.


"Xfire and Kingpin"
  posted March 21 - 3:49PM EDT by Mr.Damage
If you are having problems joining Kingpin servers and you also run the server finder program called Xfire then try turning it off and see if you can join then. I have heard of several Kingpin players having problems and when they turn off Xfire they can then join Kingpin servers without any issues.

"Game At Detropolis Saturday Night"
  posted March 18 - 3:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage
There is a regular game now at the Detropolis Custom Maps server on a Saturday night. So if your not doing anything this Sat. night why not drop in for a few maps :)

Ride OnX by JoffkaDownload


Ride On X is a DM map from 2001 that has pretty much been overlooked. It's a large DM map with four main areas that you traverse via floating platforms. There are two story buildings in each area where you can jump on the platforms. There are other smaller areas, including a secret room, ample weapons 'n' stuff with the rocket launcher being the preffered weapon. Its an interesting map which is good with eight or more players.

  posted March 4 - 5:11AM EST by Mr.Damage

Male SAS by TiCaLDownload

This model was originally made for Quake2 by HitmanDaz and is based on the British anti-terrorist force, the Special Air Service. It was first converted to Kingpin for the aborted Street Wars mod but it had some major issues. Finally it was fixed and released by TiCaL.
It has KP weapons support (other than it uses the original Q2 weapon instead of the pistol), 4 skins, and a low polycount.

"Kingpin: Final Crime SP Mappack"
  posted March 3 - 4:34AM EST by Mr.Damage

Kingpin: Final Crime by MethodDownload

Kingpin: Final Crime is the mappack made by Method that follows on from where the original Kingpin ends. It contains new maps, characters, sounds and cutscenes.
Blunt (the chick boss) flew away on the helicopter, but promised to be back for Thug's ass. She knew that it's too risky to go to Crystal Palace, where Thug got all his boys, so she sent her gang, Dragons, to tear Radio City up, so Thug will have no choice but to find and stop Blunt. You start the game in the back of Crystal Palace and go through a few levels, including "backyard" of Radio City, Sewers, Wharf and Blunt's Poison Mill before you encounter Blunt and pop a cap in her ass :)

"UT Kingpin Style DM Map"
  posted March 2 - 3:28AM EST by Mr.Damage

UT Kingpin Style by CreamatorDownload

This is a classic DM map created by Creamator way back in 2002. This is a small to medium sized map which is a based on one of the stock Unreal Tournament maps. It is set in a garage complex and if you have played UT you will know it straight away. The map has ample weapons and items, uses all KP textures and has 15 player spawns. There is also a secret room :o


"House Of Death Single Player Map"
  posted March 1 - 2:47PM EST by Mr.Damage

House of Death Part1 by SonikDownload

House of Death pt1 is one of the best SP mappacks for KP. This is how Sonik describes it:-
My first ever single player map pack!! Based in a haunted house, you will travel through the depths of it, and back to the surface. I added in some pretty interesting effects, like the flying sofa :). You also get to take a trip on a doomed runaway train!
SEVEN levels of frightening fun!
This is definately a mappack you should grab.



Unfortunately Sonik had a HDD crash when he was working on HoD part2 and lost all his work :(
But perhps if there is enough interest from the community he may be persuaded to start work on it gain :)
