"Iron Man Thug Skin"

"Undying1 Map On Bloodmoney Server"
  posted May 28 - 7:40AM EDT by Mr.Damage
{GT}TheGhost is running this map, Undying1 on his Bloodmoney test server called DaRk KaRNiVaL SeRvEr.
This is a large DM Map set in an old spooky mansion which uses textures from the game Undying. The map looks excellent from the grand entryway, the music room, chapel, lounge areas, secret passage, grandoise hallways, to the bar area etc. The textures look great and suite the theme of the map perfectly.
It uses many Undying textures and has several custom sounds so I recommend downloading it from KP4Ever here.



Other maps in rotation on the server are:-
New Woods2
Eve of Revenge
Hellsgate Remake
CurVaciouS
Temple Verte

"Indiana Jones Thug Skins"
  posted May 27 - 7:56AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I just watched the latest indiana Jones movie so thought it was a good time to post about the two available Indiana Jones thug skins.
Both date from the early days of Kingpin and one was made by Guido Fan (indy.zip) and the other by (JKL)plumster (ind.zip).
Both zips have been updated so you only have to extract all files to your Kingpin folder.
You can download the skins from here:-
ind.zip
indy.zip




To see if you already have these skins go to Kingpin\main\models\actors\thug and look for the following files:-

"Canyon Outpost DM Map"
  posted May 25 - 6:42AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I played this map over the weekend for the first time in a long, long time.
Canyon Outpost is a DM map which was converted to Kingpin by {GT}Ghost. It's a very large map good for 8 - 16 people. There are many different areas, both indoor and outdoors, with the outdoor areas mostly having bodies of water in them. The level also includes military vehicles such as a tank, plane, cannon and helicopter. It uses all the original Quake2 textures and sounds and has ample weapons and other items.
You can Download Canyon Outpost conversion from here.

"Southside DM Map"
  posted May 21 - 4:56AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Way back in August of 2007 I submitted this map to Fileplanet and finally today they have approved the submission lol.

Southside, by Stigma, is a small, urban style, map which utilises buildings and other features from some of the single player Kingpin maps redesigned into this DM map. The map is small and most of the action takes place in the street but you can enter one of the building and there are some train carriages you can access as well. There are ample weapons and other items for a map of this size and it has 9 spawn points.

It has heavy rain going on, one vicious dog, two lots of rats, exploding doors and boxes and lots of single player props (cig & soda machines, trash cans and some trash on the ground, etc) for use with mods that support these features.

You can download this map from:-
Fileplanet
KP4Ever




"Team Spawndeath BM Map Added To Archive"
  posted May 20 - 5:37AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have addded the crazy Bagman map Team Spawndeath or Spawn and Die!, as its called, to our map archive.
If you don't know it, it's a tiny map with a heap of HMGs and Cooling mods, a money drop, and little else.
You can download it from here.

"New MM Levelshots"
  posted May 19 - 5:19AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Thief|Meph has been busy lately creating Monkey Mod Levelshots for well over 300 DM Maps.
These are the shots you see on the map voting page after you have selected a map to vote for.
This would have been a lot of work over a period of time.
You can download the levelshots zipfile from here.

Just extract all files to your Kingpin folder.

"Hypov8 Releases New Map"
  posted May 15 - 6:17AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Hypoville North by Hypov8Download


Hypov8 has released his new DM map called Hypoville North which is a reworking of his earlier Hypo Urb map.
It's a cut down version of Hypo Urb but is still medium to large in size. Of course it's set in an decaying urban environment so fits in well with the KP theme and is a high quality map.
It has ample weapons and items, 17 player spawns and one or two surprises.
Thanks to Thief|Meph who made the monkey mod levelshot.

There are 16 player spawns and some rats and dogs included, for mods that support them.
