Midnight Creeper is a map by Sonik which he released back in April of 2006.
It's a small/medium sized, urban style map carrying on the theme from his previous map 10th Street. Its a tight little map, small area but lots of places to frag in and enough weapons and items. You can download Midnight Creeper from here.
"Male Messiah Model" posted May 17 - 4:49AM EDT by Mr.Damage
One of my favourite custom models is Messiah. Sylacs converted the popular Quake2 Player Model for Kingpin. This was originally a clan player model in Quake2 - "He is the Trench coat sportin' Shotgun totin' Messiah" made by Slaine & Happy Slappy. You can download the Messiah model from here.
There is also a big skin pack for thsi model. Forty or so skins for the Male Messiah model all of which were converted from Quake2. There are many different styles and types with skins of Neo, The Professional, The Crow, The Don a Reverend etc etc. Just extract all files to your Kingpin folder. You can download the Male Messiah Skin Pack from here.
"Tunnels v2 DM Map" posted May 15 - 10:23PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is a map I released in April of 2005. This is a small arena style DM map which is an update of the Tunnels map made by Deefa. There is a main area containing a central tower & walkways which criss-cross the main area leading to outer rooms and corridors. If you fall from the walkways you will end up in the lava but you can run to the centre of the map where the tower has a ladder. You can download Tunnels v2 from here.
"The Simpsons Custom Skins and Models" posted May 13 - 4:12AM EDT by Mr.Damage
It looks like The Simpsons are about to be immortalised by the US Postal Service with a set of postage stamps to be released to celebrate their 20th Anniversary on air. However the celebrated yellow skinned family and their friends have been celebrated in FPS games for the past several years and Kingpin is no exception. There have been several custom skins and models of some of The Simpsons characters created for Kingpin.
All the zip files are setup so you just have to extract the files to your Kingpin folder.
NB The Don Homer Runt skin comes with a replacement Stetson hat which will overwrite the existing one. If you don't want to overwrite the existing one don't extract the stetson1.tga file from the zip or before you extract the files back up this file:- Kingpin\main\models\props\stetson
Barney and Don Homer
Homer Skins and Mr Burns Skin

Its a multi level map and there are areas under water on the lower level. It has 12 player spawns, ample weapons and items (including some in the water) and uses the original Quake textures.

"New Kingpin Article" posted May 6 - 3:44AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I just found a new article written about Kingpin in March this year at POWET.TV. It's nothing out of the ordinary but it's good to see ppl still writing articles about this great game. Check it out here.
"Doom2 Maps" posted May 4 - 4:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here are two maps based on Doom2 maps:-
Entryway DM converted by Mr Damage This is the Entryway Level from Doom2. This map was originally made for Quake2 by Hawkmoon as an enhanced version of the Doom2 Map01 - Entryway. It uses all Doom2 style textures, has a custom sky, and has ample weapons and other items. One thing I remember about converting this map was that it was a real challange getting the triggered platforms working properly in the map for Kingpin :) You can download Entryway DM from here
Dead Serious by -=Mad-Dog=- Dead Serious is a remake of the classic Doom2 map Dead Simple. He used the Serious Sam texture pack resulting in a great looking map. It has 16 player spawns, loads of weaps & ammo, and a shootable switch revealing a secret. This map also includes custom sky & sounds. You can download Dead Serious from here
