"Two More KIT Maps"
  posted April 3 - 4:37PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Two more of the KIT maps that Fredz has sent in. They are AODJump and Beachjumping.

Both maps are converted from Quake2 and retain the original textures. Both are smallish maps and are all about trick jumps to reach the end. AODJump is a small arena where you have to do several jumps to get to the top where you need to get to your final goal which is a cage with a RL in it. Beachjumping is like a beach invasion where you have to get over several bunker obstacles by doing trick jumps.

You can download the maps here:-

AODJump
Beachjumping

"Boink2 DM Map"
  posted April 3 - 5:23AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Boink2 by Mr DamageDownload

I have updated/revised the old Boink map which was originally made by Sureshot. Boink is a small, cartoonish map which was made for 1v1 play. It only had four spawns and the only weapons are pistol mods, HMGs and Flamers.
I have added several more player spawns, a heap of weapons and items, lightened the map up and added a custom sky and made it easier to get up the ladders in the map.


"Two New KIT Maps"
  posted April 3 - 5:15AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has sent in a heap of new KIT maps which I will posting about over the next several days.

The first two are called Ancient Lab and Sky Palace Gate.

Both maps are conversions from Quake2 and were originally made by Gouki. They are both smallish maps and are mainly maze style maps with some obstacles and jumps near the end of each one (there is also a HMG at the very end of both maps). Both utilise the original Q2 textures and both will probably elevate your frustration levels until you finally spy the HMG signifying your completion of both maps :)

You can grab them from here:-

Ancient Lab
Sky Palace Gate

"New KIT Map By Sonik"
  posted April 1 - 4:57PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Streets of Rage 3 - Kit by SonikDownload



Sonik has released a new KIT (Kingpin Intensive Training) map called Streets of Rage 3 - KIT. It's a largish, urban themed KIT map, similar in style to the previous two Streets of Rage maps. It looks very challanging and has a few surprised such as a circle of death :)

This is another high quality map by Sonik but is it the best KIT map released so far? Well download it and find out for yourself ;)
