Just a reminder that there is an updated version of Gamespy Lite created by PeNdEjO which he released in 2004. He updated the background image, removed several buttons that were dead links and replaced the link to PlanetKingpin with a link to us at Kingpinforever.

Just extract the file to your kingpin/gamespy folder.
If you want to keep your original just rename it or copy it elsewhere.

"New DM Map By Stigma"
  posted August 14 - 5:53AM EDT by Mr.Damage

-=DamStorage=- by StigmaDownload

Stigma and me have collaborated on a new Deathmatch map for Kingpin caleld -=DamStorage=-.
This is a small to medium sized map set in some kind of decaying storage facility. It has two areas with the larger being the indoors area and a smaller outside area. Although much of the roof in the indoors area is missing making it very open. The map is urban Kingpin style and the indoor area is made up of several smaller rooms surrounding a large open centre area. It contains lots of boxes and crates and storage lockers.

The smaller outdoors area contains some more crates, boxes and a few barrels and the classic Kingpin dumpster.
The map has ample weapons and other items and 12 player spawns.
It features a downloadable dark custom sky and there are weather effects, rats, a dog and other single player items for use with multiplayer mods that support them.



Update 15th August I have set up a server which will run for a few days that is only running this new map (i.e Damstorage is the only map in rotation on the server) So you can download it and go check it out straight away :)
The sever is named -=DamStorage Map=- so it should be easy to find in Gamespy.
