"New BM Map"
  posted August 25 - 10:30PM EDT by DirtyDog
I've just completed a medium to large size BagMan map designed mostly for Curse BM entitled WreCKviLLe. It's a classic Kingpin urban theme with only 3 custom textures. I was looking for a good flow so as to make defending the base challenging. I hope you enjoy it :)

"Revised DM Map"
  posted August 23 - 4:44AM EDT by DirtyDog
After fragging at Detropolis last night an old map was loaded that after about 3 minutes left me frustrated because of the various [easy to fix] issues it had. So I logged off and fixed it. The original map is called MoshPit and here are the list of fixes:

Functional FIXES:
*Increased the value of all light entities as this map was entirely too dark
*Junior'd up the place as there were ZERO juniors & players were showing up black (sillouhettes)
*Flushed out two large and obnoxious HOM's
*Added 14 respawns bringing the total to 18
*Some texture stretching here and there to keep the r_speeds down after fixing the HOM's

Cosmetic FIXES:
*Almost all the light in this map comes from light_fire entities. However, the light they were emitting was white. So I changed the color to the correct orange/fire color and assigned each entity a matching colored and styled Junior (styled to reflect the flicker from the fire).
*Added a couple of additional lights under the balconies as these areas were dark and looked a bit off.
*Reworked the weapons/ammo as they were somewhat of a hodgepodge.

All and all it took less than hour to do and was well worth it as this map is lot's of fun. Download the revised version from here: MoshPit 2 and the original for comparison: MoshPit

"New RioTZ 1v1 Map"
  posted August 20 - 7:16AM EDT by Mr.Damage

It was converted for RioTZ but will work with any mod where the server supplies the weapons and there are no weapons in the map (such as Hitmen).

"Another Reckless Abandon Conversion"
  posted August 14 - 7:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Recently I posted about a conversion of the Quake2 Reckless Abandon map done by PeNdEjO. This version used all the original Q2 textures. After I posted about it Digital Graveyard reminded me that Rat Instinct had also converted the map and included it in the Catch The Chicken files. Rat's version uses Kingpin default textures and looks a lot different from PeNdEjO's one. So I have created a zip file for it and made it available for downlod.
Download Rat Instinct's version here.

"New DM Map"
  posted August 14 - 2:34AM EDT by DirtyDog
I've just completed a smallish, not too complicated DM map entitled HaVaNa. After going through PenCHo's recently converted Half-Life textures I came across a folder called "cs_havana." Well, being of Cuban descent (both my parents born in Cuba--specifically Havana) I simply couldn't resist. Although the map is purely fictional the textures however are quite authentic in the sense that Cuba is very run down these days due to lack of construction/funds etc. Funny enough they fit right in with the Kingpin theme. I added a musical snippet of a 1940's vintage Cuban Mambo by none other than the legendary Damaso Perez Prado. To this very day his music is used in various soundtracks and this one specifically ("que rico el mambo") was aired on an episode of the honeymooners back in the fifties. It's a very rich, exciting and jazzy sound, hope you enjoy the map :)

Download from here: HaVaNa

"New Bagman Map By Whoop Ass"
  posted August 13 - 5:48AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Whoop Ass has released a beta of a new Egyptian themed Bagman map called Valley of the Kingpin.

Very large, very egyptian Grab Tha Loot map, I've had a few requests for an egyptian themed map since the release of Osiris a while ago, but I had to make it bigger! So along came votk, 40 spawn points and a central cash drop. I've included ALL weapons for a change, mostly due to the size. Check it out :)

The map contains 32 custom textures and weighs in at just under 2 mg.

"New HMG Skin By Wolfpac"
  posted August 11 - 7:28PM EDT by Mr.Damage

"BM retexture by Thief|DreaD"
  posted August 6 - 12:27AM EDT by DirtyDog
TheiF|DreaD has retextured a BM map originally designed by Matrix[RnD] with Xatrix's original urban textures to now be called Team X UrBan. This is a map I stumbled upon one day in the [Jedi] BM server and after taking a good look at the texturing job I had my suspicions that it was DreaD's handiwork. He is known for very detailed and precise texturing and sure enough my suspicions were confirmed. It's a fun map and with the retexture it's truly a sharp looking map. Download it from here: Team X UrBan but to really appreciate the change, download and compare it to the original: Team X Octagon

"Half-Life Textures converted to Kingpin"
  posted August 5 - 2:25AM EDT by DirtyDog
Our old friend PenCHo has taken the time to convert a TRUCK-load of Half-Life textures over to Kingpin. This is really some job as he converted over 80mb (zipped..) worth of these textures and I have to say they look excellent. (you hear that Hogie, WhoOP and Hypo...*hint). Alot went into this so here's a brief summary from the man himself:


This is a conversion of all textures from Half-life and it's most popular addons and mods.
This pack contains textures from the following games:
Half-life : Opposing Force and Opposing Force CTF
Half-life : Blue Shift
I may convert the textures from Team Fortress Classic in a later update.

What I have done:
-Converted all textures from WAD files to 32-bit TGA textures.
-Removed unnecessary textures (e.g. clip, sky, trigger and some very specific ones)
-I didn't manage to convert the transparent textures (fences etc.) because they did not turn out correctly as Alpha textures.
They have been deleted. If I find a way to do them proplerly I will release an addon.
-Darkened all the textures to make them appear right in Kingpin.

Comments and suggestions are welcome : oggie_k@yahoo.com

As I mentioned before the job came out great and I really hope to see some maps with these textures (I'll certainly try my hand) They're packed into 6 zip files weighing in at almost 13mb a piece, download them from here:
