New Killin' is a new DM Map by {NeW}Misfit and me. It has four corridors surrounding a centre area that contains a pool of water that is intersected by a pathway which connects to two of the corridors. There are lots of windows in the corridors in the ceilings and outer walls. The walls surrounding the centre area have no windows but contain lots of wall panels containing skull textures.

"New Bagman Map - Team Bridge Crossing"
  posted July 22 - 10:37PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Team Bridge Crossing by StigmaDownload

Stigma and I have now finished our new Bagman map called Team Bridge Crossing. It's a largish map with the two team bases separated by a river which is spanned by a large bridge.
The bases contain several rooms where there are caches of weapons and items. The team's 'safes' are on the back of the trucks that are located in the two bases.
If you end up in the water under the bridge there are ladders to get back to the bridge area.
The money drop is in the centre of the bridge along with the only grenade launcher in the map.
The map uses mostly standard Kingpin textures but with a few custom ones as well. There is also one custom sound used.
There are ample weapons and items and 20 player spawns (10 for each team).
Hope you like it =)

"KP Citadel 2006 DM Map"
  posted July 12 - 3:57AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is a map that always get favourable comments each time it comes up on our Legacy server. It's KP Citadel 2006 which was made by {GT}Knight.
The map is a small to medium sized arena style map. It's very colourful and mainly utilises the KPDM5 texture set and features a custom sky. It is set in a citadel where there is a fountain in the centre, you climb up vines to access the roof area, and there are large statues around the edge of the map. There are ample weapons and the map even has large birds flying around. The map is very detailed and thus the rspeeds are high in some places.

"Hypo's Train Station Bagman Map"
  posted July 10 - 4:28AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is an older BM map called Hypo's Train Station: Radio City made by Hypov8 back in 2000. To quote the man himself:-
...this is a train station map, in the style of radio city (rc).
I tried to make 3 ways to base and try to make them the same time to reach as each other. The slightly shorter way dont have as many goodies..
Of course being a train station I had to add trains, so look out ppl, they killers...
If you don't already have this map (team_hyporc.bsp) then I recommend you get it :)
You can download Hypo's Train Station from here.
