"Screenshots of upcoming DM map" posted September 28 - 8:43AM EDT by DirtyDog
I'm about 99% finished updating the classic DM map, The Yard. This is a map that reminds me of when I first started fragging and thought it could use an update. I ended up giving it a full scale rebuild, some redesign, relight, retexture. I should have it out within the next day or so. Here's s a couple of screenshots:

"PenCHo's Maps Weekend" posted September 27 - 11:24AM EDT by DirtyDog
I thought I would tribute one of KP's longtime mappers, PenCHo by hosting a list of his DM maps on Detropolis this weekend. In the next few days I will be posting a mappack for this so until then, for those of you who pretty much already have his maps, here are some updates I've started with:
A couple of years ago PenCHo updated two of his earlier maps at my request with extra spawns as the originals only had 4 each. Although this request has long since been completed the file names were never changed and this will cause people to get kicked with file name errors. Ive renamed them and rezipped them as well as add levelshots to them. Grab these updated classics from here: C-4 and Box Dungeon. For the levelshots, grab those from here: C-4 LevelShot and BD LevelShot.
C-4 Updated & Box Dungeon Updated
Another update is on PenCHo's Half-Life converted map, KP Half-Life Arena. After fragging on it this weekend several players commented on how dark the map was as well as the actual players being too dark. I opened the map and noticed that it could certainly benefit from a good junior upgrade and it made a big difference. Also the level shot's color depth needed to be adjusted and that's been fixed as well. It's a really nice conversion and here is that result: KP Half-Life Arena2 (updated levelshot is included).

"Don Fratelli Runt Skin" posted September 22 - 7:01AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I was looking through some skins tonight and found this great looking skin for the Runt model call Don Fratelli. It's an oldie from '99 and worth the download if you don't have it. The skin files are head_don, body_don, legs_don and there are also pain skins. The zipfile contains a readme with instructions on how to install the files.

One of the most popular skins for the bitch model is Lara Croft, the buxom female character from the TombRaider games and movies. This is a good looking skin so if you don't already have it grab it from the link above. Just extract the files in the zip to your kingpin folder (the skin files are head_605, body_022, legs_022).
Of course there is the obligatory nude version of the skin as well which was made by TiCaL which you can downlaod from here :P

"More Screens of Cujo's New KP2 Mod Map" posted September 15 - 5:59AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here are some more screenshots Cujo sent in of his upcoming map House full of Brits which is for the KP2 mod.
"New DM Map - The Lumber Yard" posted September 10 - 10:00PM EDT by Mr.Damage
The Lumber Yard is a medium sized DM map which is a conversion of the ActionQuake2 map by Brent "WetWired" Waller. This map is set in a lumberyard with an indoor wood processing area, which contains a working conveyor belt and circular saw, and an open area outside where there is lots of lumber waiting to be shipped. You can also access the rooftops by climbing up the drainpipes and the piles of woodchips. The map has ample weapons and other items and should be a lot of fun with 6 - 8 people. My thanks go to WetWired for giving permission to convert this map to Kingpin and of course to Hypo_v8 who got the converyor belt working in KP and for other miscellaneous tweaks :)
Update 14th September Looks like I left 2 custom textures out of the zipfile :( I have fixed the zip and uploaded the new one and the above link points to the updated zip. I have also made a zipfile (97kb) that just contains the two missing textures from the original zip so if you already downloaded the map and you need these textures you can download them from here.
"Screenshots Of Upcoming Map" posted September 9 - 4:02AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Cujo has resumed work on his House full of Brits Map.
You know I been working on House full of Brits for some time. Here update and a few screenshots. I have added a good size house setting on a lot and I changed 70% of this map. I added a lot of area for good battle for KP2 mod. I added in living room, bedroom, and kitchen, and an outside pool
From what Cujo says there is still a load of work to be done on this map and the title may even change before it's released.
"Updated Level Shots" posted September 8 - 11:07PM EDT by DirtyDog
I updated a bunch of the level shots for my maps and just packed em all up into a zip that will replace my old levelshot pack. Grab it from here and just overwrite when prompted: DD Level Shots
For more detailed explanation on Level shots just scroll down to Mr. Damage's recent post on it
"DM Map Update" posted September 8 - 9:41PM EDT by DirtyDog
I've just uploaded an updated version of a previously converted Quake2 map, Final Showdown. This was originally brought over to KP by CaT a couple of years ago and after a few frags in Detropolis I thought it could use a facelift:
This is a fairly straight conversion of the last SP level in Quake2. Originally converted by CaT, he did the hard part (removing the LOADS of Q2 entities, structural changes to suit KP etc) The only issues were missing juniors, lighting was kinda off, very dark and some health was buried in one of the brushes. I pretty much gave it a full relighting, added flares for a KP feel, re-weaped/re-spawned and I opened these really cool compartments for a little added effect. The map is small and it's a blast, enjoy :)
"Captain Death's Skill Mod" posted September 4 - 1:13AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Captain Death has recently put his Skill Mod server back up.
If you havent given it a try then now is the time to do it. The Skill mod is is a round based Last Man Standing mod. At the start of a round, each player will start with a pipe and the current weapon (determined by server). The last player standing wins the round. If the round time limit is reached, the player with most kills that round gets the win, but if two or more players have the same frags then no-one wins.
Skill is a serverside only mod which means clients don't need any files to play. If you want to the Skill mod server files v0.25 then you can grab them from here.
For a more detailed instructions on how to play Skill mod then check out this page at his website here.

"CTF Slumz Map Updated" posted September 4 - 1:01AM EDT by Mr.Damage
There were some spawn point issues in the original CTF Slumz map that Whoop Ass has fixed and now released an updated version of the map. He also fixed the junior lighting in the weapon rooms and tweaked a few other area's.
If you haven't already you should check out his other COLORS CTF Map CTF Art which is probably the most intense CTF map currently available. You can download it from here.
Recently I converted the Pawn Shop map (nycdm3.bsp) from SoF using all SoF textures. I have now made a version which uses just about all standard KP textures giving it a nice urban look and feel. It's a small map in an urban street setting. There is a Pawn Shop in the middle of the map and there are lots of buildings around the edges. There are ledges and roofs you can climb up onto and there are lots of weapons, armour, ammo etc :)
"RiotZ Mod Server Update " posted September 2 - 6:20AM EDT by Mr.Damage

"LevelShots" posted September 2 - 5:30AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Just in case you don't know what these levelshots are that we talk about sometimes, this is what they are:-
When you are playing in a server running Monkey Mod that has map voting turned on, at the end of the current map when voting for the next map, you can see its levelshot below the choices. But in order to see these shots you must have them installed in your Kingpin. Some mappers put them in their zip files and some have been created seperately and are available for download from our Levelshots download section here. You can see which levelshots you have already by checking kingpin/main/pics folder. You can download Levelshots for all the default Xatrix maps, both DM & BM, in a Pak file from here.
For information on how to create these Levelshots go here.
"Kingpin In Other Games - Doom3 Update" posted September 2 - 5:26AM EDT by Mr.Damage
