KPWolf by SonikDownload

This is a map, released by Sonik, which is a partial conversion/remake of the RTCW map MP Beach. This map is setbin the base area of the original map. It's a small map, ample weapons and good for a small fragfest.


"POTD Reminder #1,000,000,000 and Three"
  posted May 29 - 10:02AM EDT by NeWFnlou
For some bizzare reason, there are a few folks out there in cyberspace who seem to think that POISONVILLE aka KINGPINFOREVER is interested in screenshots from other games. This is my quarterly reminder to those folks that we ARE NOT. Please do not waste your own bandwidth and our valuable time by uploading screenshots from whatever RPG or Fantasy game you happen to being playing at the moment. The POTD upload is not an "automated system", and each submission is reviewed by a Staff Member of KP4EVER to insure that it is relevant to the coolest FPS on the planet - Kingpin - Life Of Crime. It's hard to believe that we should have to spell this simple fact out, but I suggest that those folks who are thinking of sharing their "other game" screenies do a little google searching and take their interests somewhere else. For the rest of you who are interested in KP, WELCOME HOME!....And keep on sending in those killa KP pics OK?

"New KIT Map By Sonik"

Strets Of Rage 4 - KiT by SonikDownload


Sonik has released his fifth KiT map for Kingpin called Streets of Rage 4 - KiT. This is a medium sized, challanging map in the classic urban style. Another great and fun map by Sonik.


"Return To Castle Scarecrow DM Map"
  posted May 25 - 7:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Return To Castle Scarecrow by SandstormDownload

Here is an old map that deserves another look I think. It's a large DM map, in the KPDM5 style by Sandstorm. As well as many stairs it also has several lifts in the map for accessing the different levels. It's seems to be just a bit light on for weapons, but there is one place, up high, where there are four HMG's lol.


"Beta Of new DM Map"
  posted May 22 - 5:09PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Arena SMRTI (Revised) Beta by Mr DamageDownload

I have revised the Arena SMRTI DM map which was originally created by Oracius. This was a map he made which was a remake of the Quake3 map Q3DM3 Arena of Death.

I have retextured it using the KPDM5 texture set and added lots more player spawn points (Oracius's map only had four). I also added more weapons, made a few minor structural changes and a few other fixes. It has been tested on Detropolis and seems to play well :)



Btw, you can grab the original Arena SMRTI map by Oracius from here.

"More Mafia Skins"
  posted May 20 - 5:16AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Russian Mafia Thug by unknownDownload

Recently I posted about an old skinpack featuring two mafia skins, one of them of a Russian Mafia thug. Since then I have found another Russian Mafia thug skin we hosted. This one is a lot different and another good thug skin. The author of this skin is unknown.



Now I also found yet another Russian Mafia thug skin by Black Pope but this one was exactly the same as the one in the Mafia Skin pack, by Don Corleone, but the skin files had different names. Now seeing as the unknown author skin and the Don Corleone skin both use the same names (body_rus and legs_rus) I have added the Black Pope version (head_rmf, body_rmf and legs_rmf) to the Mafia skin pack so you can have both the unknown author skin and the BlackPope/Don Corleone skin in your collection :)

Download the updated Mafia Skinpack from here.

"DM Kundun Map Released"
  posted May 20 - 4:39AM EDT by Mr.Damage

DM Kundun by CujoDownload

Cujo has now released the new map he has been working on recently. This one is a Quake2 stlye map which uses all custom textures. It features jump pads, teleports, custom sounds and plenty of weapons and items. Due to the openness of the map r speeds are a bit high in places but generally ok.


"CRASH Squad Video"
  posted May 20 - 4:29AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Tunnleram is planning on creating a Crash Squad video using footage from the recent games on his Tram Design CRASH server. In the interim he has put together a quickie video using footage from last weekend's game in the Lockaway Storage map. You can check it out here.

"New DM Map By Fredz"
  posted May 20 - 12:08AM EDT by Mr.Damage

The Lost Island by FredzDownload

Fredz has created a new DM Map for Kingpin called The Lost Island. This is a small map set on a little tropical island. There is a building/structure which dominates the map which is four small, open rooms each containing a HMG. Outside there are four rocket launchers and tommyguns as well. There are palm treess (which drop coconuts) and a nice attempt to simulate the tide rolling in and out :)

BOM Village conv by Mr DamageDownload

This is a CRASH Squad version of the DM Village map that was created some time ago and is for the bombing scenario. But it is not in the CRASH Squad mappack so I have reposted about it. Village is a conversion to Kingpin of the cs map de_village which was created by Debugger.

"Mover6 Utility"
  posted May 9 - 4:05AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Mover6 Utility by TiCaLDownload


Every six months or so I remind people who download a lot of maps from Kingpin servers to run the Mover6 Utility.

All maps and textures should be in the main folder but when you download a map from a server it puts it in the folder where the server is running from. So it can end up in the Comp, Hitmen, Extreme folders or many others.
You can end up with the same map in several different folders (if you d/l a map while playing the Hitmen mod it puts it into the Hitmen/maps folder and then if you join another server running a different mod such as the Comp mod, but running the same map, it will d/l the map again, because it is not in main/maps folder where it should be. Hence you can end up with the same map in several different places and with a larger than necessary Kingpin folder.

If you d/l and run the Mover6 utility by TiCaL it moves all maps, textures, sounds, skins, etc, from your mod folders back to main where they belong in the main folder. The zip includes a Readme with clear instructions on how to run it.
