"New Xmas DM Map"
  posted October 28 - 12:00AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Merry Christmas 2007 by AB|Jon3s & Mr DamageDownload

Me and AB|Jon3s have collaborated on a new map Xmas themed DM Map called Merry Christmas 2007
It's a small, 2 level, deathmatch map. The top level is Xmas style with Xmas trees, presents and snow on the ground. There are four large rocks in the centre which surround a large hole where you get down to the lower level. There are also stairs down to the lower level at either end of the map. You can climb up on the centre blocks to get armour and weapons.
The lower level is urban stlye. A circular area with lots of weapons and items.
The map contains 12 spawn points and ample weapons and other items.



Update 30th Oct I forgot to mention that this map features snow for those mods that support weather effects.

"Halloween At Detropolis"
  posted October 26 - 8:56PM EDT by Mr.Damage
The 31st October is Halloween and this year we will be celebrating it at the Detropolis Custom Maps Server.
I have selected some maps that are full of crypts and cemetaries, coffins and blood ready for some frightnight fragging :)
Some of the maps contain spooky, eerie custom sounds which really add to the 'scary' atmosphere.
I have created a mappack containing 13 custom maps (I was going to look for more to add but {New}Vitachick reminded me that '13' is a perfect number for a Halloween mappack).

You can download the mappack from here.
You can see a list of al lthe maps included here.

The maps will be in rotation on Detropolis in time for Halloween so hopefully you can drop in for a few treats

Xmas Arena by AB|Jon3sDownload

AB|Jon3s has finished the revisions he was making to his latest map and has now released it. Xmas Arena is a small, Christmas themed, arena style map. It has plenty of weapons and armour, uses all Christmas themed custom textures and should be a blast with a few ppl. I am sure this will be on Go^t's Xmas server when it start running in November.

"Kingpin Legacy Server"
  posted October 12 - 9:53PM EDT by Mr.Damage
You have probably seen this server in Gamespy and you may even have dropped in for a few games. If you haven't, then to update you on what it is, it's one of the KP4Ever servers, it's deathmatch, has been running for a few months, and rotates hundreds of maps dating from the start of Kingpin right up until today.

Recently I audited all the maps in rotation and removed any rogue Bagman, Hitmen, alpha, beta maps that were later replaced by final version, excessively dark or over large maps, and any other maps with problems.

So if you want to see a lot of maps , that probably aren't in rotation on any other server. then why not drop in for a few sessions.

Server details:
Hostname : Kingpin Legacy Server
IP : 216.234.116.11:31532
Maxclients : 20
CDS client required : Yes

"Alien Abduction DM Map Added"
  posted October 11 - 8:38AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Alien Abduction2 by {420}MayhemDownload

This map is in rotation on our Kingpin Legacy Server but we didn't have it in our downloads section so I have zipped it up and added it.
Alien Abduction2 is a map converted from Quake2 by {420}Mayhem. It is in the classic Q2 style and utilises some nice textures from the VRMachine texture set.
Its a medium sized map and has lots of weapons and items, including 2 HMGs.


"Swoop DM Map Added"
  posted October 9 - 7:44PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Swoop by (K9)IcemanDownload

I have added another map to our downlaods section that {Inc}Phoenix sent me.
This one is a DM map called Swoop. It is a small, colorful, arena style map. It is multi-leveled with walkways connecting all the platforms at different levels. It uses all custom textures, has one of each weapon and heaps of armour and ammo. It has 10 player spawns and a cooling mod located on the highest platform level.

I have added this map to our Kingpin Legacy Server


"Subway Deathmatch Map Uploaded"
  posted October 7 - 9:25AM EDT by Mr.Damage

NYC 2000 by BlackhawkDownload

Here is an old map I don't think I have ever played or even seen before. It's a DM map set in a NYC Subway platform area. It was made by Blackhawk back in 1999. It's a small map and centres around two platforms of the subway and the area on the level above.
It's currently in rotation on our Kingpin Legacy Server so check it out there :)


"House Of Death2 Released"
  posted October 4 - 7:49PM EDT by Mr.Damage

House Of Death2 by SonikDownload



The new Single Player Mappack called House of Death2 created by Sonik is now available.
The mappack contains three SP maps and carries on from House of Death1. The mapping by Sonik is excellent making this one of the best SP packs ever for KP.

There are surprises at every turn (e.g you climb up a ladder and there is a bitch waiting at the top with a flamer ready to fry you good). There are lots of puzzles, mainly in the 'KIT Mod' style (e.g you have to get from one side of a room to the other negotiating your way over planks and ledges etc without falling to your death).
Sometimes you have to go back to places you have already been but Sonik does this very well by opening up new ways to get back there.

I found it hard, but very enjoyable, and ended up playing it on the easy level. I suggest saving often and explore every nook and cranny for health and any items as you will need them! :)

The final battle is a doozy but I wont spoil it by telling you about it ;)



Just extract all files in the zip to your Kingpin folder.
Then to play, start Kingpin, bring down the console, and type "map house_of_death_2" (without the quotes).

I have a forum post about HoD2 where I have posted more screenshots. You can also post any comments or questions aobut the pack there. You can check the post out here.

If you haven't played House of Death1 you can download it from here.

"Two More YouTube KP Videos"
  posted October 4 - 5:48PM EDT by Mr.Damage
{Inc}Phoenix sent in links to two more Kingpin videos at YouTube.

"New DM Map - Ham'N'Cheez 2007"
  posted October 2 - 11:58PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Ham'N'Cheez 2007 revised by Mr Damage & Hypov8Download

Recently I posted that I was working on revising an old map called HamNCheez. Well It is finally finished and the updated version Ham'N'Cheez 2007 has now been released. The original HamNCheez DM map was created in September of 2001 by an unknown author. It is a small, urban style street map.
The main changes made are:-
Fixed the lighting and made it brighter
Changed some of the weapon/item types, amount and placement
Changed some brushes and texturing
Added some ladders to improve the flow of the map & open up access to rooftops
Reduced rspeeds
Added more player spawns

I would like to thank Hypov8 for his suggestions and help with this map, especially for his work on reducing the rspeeds. It is a much better map for having him work on it :)



If you would like to check out the original Ham'N'Cheez map you can download it from here.

"New Kingpin Video At YouTube"
  posted October 2 - 6:32PM EDT by Mr.Damage
ziegethief sent word that he has created a new short video of Kingpin and his clan Thief and uploaded it to YouTube.
Its called Thief Dancing Lezbo and is a great video.
You can check it out here.

Btw, Thief are recruiting and contact details are at the end of the video :)

"Update - House Of Death2"
  posted October 2 - 7:35AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I just have just sent an email to Sonik to get one issue resolved with his House of Death2 mappack. Once it's sorted the pack can be released. To comment on HoD2 I would say that if you have liked playing all the existing KP single player mappacks then you are going to love this one.

In the meantime I have posted some screenshots in a forum post here.
