Cujo (aka Stigma) and me have collaberated on a new DM Map for Kingpin called Keptout. This is a small DM Map, set in a courtyard with one small building. There are 8 spawn points and plenty of weapons n stuff.
"Mephistopholes Lair DM Map Released" posted August 25 - 9:55PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Mephistopholes Lair is now finished and released. This is a map converted from Quake2 which was originally created by Monster. It's a classic style Quake2 map, a sort of 'floating space' map, using all custom textures, some custom sounds and a custom sky as well. It's got ample weapons and items (including two HMG's to cut down on camping the HMG lol), jumppads, deadly slime and be careful cause you can fall off the rocky edges ;)

Here is a screenshot of a map I have been working on for a fair while (off and on). It's a conversion of a Quake2 map by Monster called Mephistopholes' Lair. It's basically done now I'm just tweaking it at the moment and should be out soon.
"Crushaville DM Maps" posted August 20 - 11:34PM EDT by Mr.Damage
After watching the 1998 Kingpin Promo video I went back and had a look at some of the maps released in the early days of KP. The two Crushaville maps (Crushaville South and Crushaville East) are two of the best IMO. They are medium to large, urban style maps with lots of atmosphere. These maps were created by Neo -TC- and Bain -TC- and are definately worth checking out if you've never seen them. I have updated the zip files so you only have to extract all files to your kingpin folder and also added Monkeymod level shots for both maps. Grab them from here:-
"1998 KP Pomotional Video" posted August 19 - 6:29AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I love this video. It's the promo video from 1998. If you've forgotten why you got into KP in the first place watch this awesome little video. I especially like the slomo bit when the thug is filled full of lead :) It's in MPG format so you can watch it in Media Player.

Here is a thug skin which is the Monkey character from the cult TV series from the 80's called Monkey Magic. It's a good looking skin :)

"BC's Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass Update #20 Released" posted August 7 - 4:27AM EDT by Mr.Damage
After a break of a few months, the latest installment of the BC's-Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass series of mappacks has been released. This update mappack contains 50 maps (DM, CTF, Hitmen, KIT and Bagman) which were released in the period from mid Novemeber 2003 through to late April 2004. The pack is spread over four zip files which are between 14 - 15mg.
This was another good period for map releases with lots of classy maps created by many different mappers for deathmatch and several different mods. There were levels by new mappers such as Fredbbear, regular mappers like DirtyDog and Million and long time mappers such as Whoop Ass and Sonik. There were many Bagman maps released using custom textures and with unusual themes (like the Marble Madness ones) and many good urban style DM maps (Detropolis and Urban Territory for example). This was also a perion when several maps for the KP2 Mod were made (KP2 Windycity, KP2 Tension etc). All in all a good time for quality new maps :)
You can see details of all the maps included here.
A long, long time ago, on a webpage far, far away we used to host this map. But just before we moved everything over to here a lot of stuff was lost (read as deleted by the hosts) and this was one of the maps that was lost. Well, I found it on an old harddrive and have zipped it up and uploaded it to KP4Ever.
This is an excellent looking DM map, set in a castle, which was created by Sonik back in 2001. King of the castle frenzy! Fight your way to the top for the HMG. Sonik put all the spawn points in one area to enhance the idea of racing to he HMG. All SoF Castle textures were used to give it a real nice castle feel and a cool custom sky. There is one of every weapon except the shooty of which there are two. Download and have fun!
"Jump Pads And Teleports " posted August 1 - 3:54AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Two older DM maps that were very popular in the early days of Kingpin and which were based around teleports and jump pads are KP Airlines and A Trip beta1.
KP Airlines by Turbo. This map was described by Intruder as follows:-
Kingpin Airlines is a very futuristic looking map, and is set above a lava pit. There is a great deal of detail in the map, and bunch of jump pads. Also Turbo included new sounds which really adds a different effect to this map from the norm for KP. The gameplay is fast and frantic, players hitting the jump pads and firing rockets in mid air is common. Turbo has included new textures also which sets the mood for futuristic arena battles. I would have to say that this is one of the best maps I have seen for KP..
A Trip beta1 by Hypo v8. This is a similar map to KP Airlines but I prefer this one. It also contains jump pads and teleports but no lava to aviod so you can run around like in a normal DM map but also jump around like crazy on the pads going berserk with the rl :)
