"Friday Night Hitmen" posted March 29 - 6:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Don't forget there is a regular Friday night game of Hitmen at our KP4Ever Da Playgroundz server. If you don't have the Hitmen files I suggest you get them if only for the Grappling Hook (or just the hook as it is commonly known). This allows you to cling to walls and ceiling while fraggign away or to quickly manoeuvre around the map. Just install the files into Kingpin/Hitmen and the hook will be ready to go. Check the binds.cfg file for the 3 keys that you can use to operate the hook.
Here is an oldie but a goodie by Hypo_v8. Hypo's Steel Mill is a large DM map set, as the name suggests, in a steel mill. It is well layed out, uses mostly standard KP textures, features furnaces, stacks, lots of piping and the sort of sounds you would expect to hear in this type of steel works. It has ample weapons and items and can handle lots of players.
"New Kingpin Article" posted March 26 - 6:28AM EDT by Mr.Damage
There is a new article on Kingpin that has been written by PlayingKarrde which he has called Forgotten Games - Kingpin: Life of Crime. It's a good article but of course not everyone has forgotten KP :)
I suggest you go read the article and I encourage you to then post some comments :) You can head on over to the article by clicking here.
"New DM Map By Sonik" posted March 24 - 6:25AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Sonik has now released his latest DM Map called Out of Business.

"New UK Servers" posted March 20 - 2:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage

"Weekend Games" posted March 15 - 3:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
We are looking at getting a regular Friday night game of Hitmen going on our Da Playgroundz server starting this week. Hitmen used to be a very popular mod and we're hoping a few ppl will come back and play. Wheatgurm will usually get the game going at around 7pm USA Pacific Time. So if you have been yearning for some Hook action then Da Playgroundz will be the place to be on Friday nights :)
Also there is the Saturday night games at Detropolis which have been going pretty well. If your available on Saturday night then rock up for a few custom DM maps. A lot of the recentlt released maps are now in roation at Detropolis so It's a good place to check them all out.
And of coure you will gind a game of Bagman Curse at Hogies most of the time over the weekend.

This is a map for KP2Mod/DM that Creamator released back in 2004. It's a medium sized map set in a Research Laboritory Facility. It uses all Half-Life textures and there are plenty of breakables and other KP2 mod map features. It has 13 player spawn points, has plenty of weapons and items, and features a nice looking reflective floor inside the lab.
"Sad News" posted March 10 - 9:52PM EST by Mr.Damage
I was very sad to hear about the untimely passing of a very nice Kingpin player Cick. I would like to offer commiserations to Cick's friends and family from everyone here at KP4Ever. You can read some kind words from Thief|Cat at Area's site here.
"New DM Map By Sonik" posted March 9 - 4:15AM EST by Mr.Damage
It's always good to get a new map from Sonik and here is his latest. This one is a DM map called Costa Rican Sunset. It's a small map set on a Costa Rican beach. It has sand, sea, sun and a HMG or two :)
I will add it to the rotation at Detropolis so we can play it on Saturday night =)

"BM Mod Added To Archive" posted March 8 - 4:24AM EST by Mr.Damage
Cujo found an old HDD full of KP files from 1999. He sent in some mod files, some of which we already had and some we had later versions of (Godfather, HMG Genocide etc). One mod we didn't have was a Bagman Mod made by Alizom and simply called Bagman Modification.
This mod has many changes inlcuding:- Starting gun is pistol with silencer Renamed teams to Chinese Mafia and Russian Mafia New Skins for Russians Ammo carrying limits changed Starting health 80 boostable up to 120 Large medi packs give 20 health instead of 25 and small ones give you 10 in place of 15 New kill msgs New custom sound for thug player (very strange lol) Rockets and Grenades inflict more splash damage Pistol inflict 20 damage instead of 15
If you want to run a server you will need to add a server.cfg and a teammaps.lst file
This one is a smallish DM map set in a city street scene. It is a conversion of one of the classic Quake Fragtown maps which were a series of levels for Quake deathmatch in a city setting. The original map was created by Demolition Man. You can fight in the streets or kill people from up above on the rooftops. There are plenty of weapons and items and 13 player spawns. The map uses mostly standard KP textures an dshould be good with 4+ players.
I tested this map at Detropolis with a few ppl, who all said they liked it, so I have added it to the map rotation there ready for the regular Wednesday night game :D
"Speedway Mod Source Files" posted March 7 - 2:55AM EST by Mr.Damage
Fredz was kind enough to send in the source files for the Speedway mod. If you are an aspiring modder and want to take a look you can grab the files from here
"Team Bomba Released" posted March 6 - 5:26AM EST by Mr.Damage
Stigma has now released his Team Bomba BM map. From the readme:-
I got the idea from Hogie's team spawn death map. I made one sort of like it this - a 20-player team map with only hgm’s, added, customs sounds/sky, fixed few spots were can’t safe camp & made it little bigger so not so much a frag and die map.
Should be a lot of fun =)
"Big Update At KingpinQ3 Webpage" posted March 6 - 4:49AM EST by Mr.Damage

"ALMost Maps" posted March 2 - 5:02AM EST by Mr.Damage
Was talkin to ALMost this week and found out he hadn't played Kingpin in ages due to a Monkey Mod problem. Basically everytime he started KP with the the mmclient the screen would go black then drop him back to the desktop. He is running a radeon 9800 pro video card. Luckily he finally worked out the solution to the problem which was to turn off ATI Tray Tools. Anyways I am hoping he will drop in for few maps at one of the Detropolis Servers games soon :)
Two of his maps are in rotation at Detropolis ALMDM1 (Blackened City) and Sandmandm2 (Misery). Both are available in the Detropolis Mappacks. You can visit ALMost's mapping site here (btw he is now know as ALMIghty).
Misery & Blackened City
"Our Kingpin Servers" posted March 2 - 4:38AM EST by Mr.Damage
As you know we run several Kingpin servers and also host Hogies Curse server. Most ppl who play on these servers just come to play KP, have a bit of fun and generally appreciate that these servers are provided for them, are kept in good working order and constantly updated with new maps, different mods etc.
Unfortuntely there are always exceptions to the rule and there are the odd or two who just like to cause trouble and be disruptive. These ppl are not welcome on our servers.
This includes ppl who contantly harass other players using racist, sexist, foul insults etc (we are not talking a bit of harmless banter here either). Please be aware that the Admins here at KP4Ever do not donate there time and money keeping the KP4Ever network up and runnign to cater for these buffoons. Anyone acting like that on our servers will be dealt with appropriately.
"Area Portal Example" posted March 1 - 2:33AM EST by Mr.Damage
My good friend -=Mad-Dog=- has sent in a prefab/tutorial/example of an area portal for other mappers to use.
Area Portals are used in doorways between two separate rooms to lower world poly (wpoly).
I have added it to our Maps/Tutorials downloads section or you can download it directly by clicking here.
