"Two New KiT Maps"
  posted October 22 - 3:12AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here are two of the KiT maps Fredz sent in.

If your not aware of what KiT maps are they are Kingpin Intensive Training maps where the map is like an obstacle course and you have to manouvre your way to the end overcoming many obstacles, performing trick jumps, finding switches and working out puzzles.

Fredz Egypt Maze Kit by Fredz
This is a very large KiT map set in an Egyptian tomb.
The object of this one is to find four switches located in the map which will open the final door. It looks challenging but I don't think it will leave you too frustrated :)
You can downlod Fredz Egypt Maze KiT from here



Jones MiniKiT by AB|Jones
This is a very challenging small to medium sized map that should keep you hooked for a good while.
It starts of easy and gets harder as you go along [well it did for me anyways =)]
I found the puzzles many and varied and I'm no expert on KiT maps but I think KiT players will like this one a lot.
You can Download Jones MiniKiT from here.



Currently there is one KiT Mod server where you can play al lthe KiT maps:-

Hostname : Reactorforge.com KiT Server
IP : 69.162.66.154:31512
Maxclients : 16

Here are the first two maps supplied by Fredz. They are both for Bagman.

Team Armageddon by AB|Jones
This is a small to medium sized BM map in he latterday 'Curse' style.
There are lots of weapons in each base, the safes are open and the money drop area has the only GL in the map.
There are three ways to get to each base (two side corridors and through the centre money drop area).
It uses mostly standardKP textures and astandard sky.
You can download Team Armageddon from here.



Team Force by AB|Jones
This is an interesting little map.
It's a small map where most of the map, including the money drop area, is an enclosed arena. There is a small outer area surrounding this arena and the entire map is surrounded by a rock wall. The Team's safe bags are at either end of the map near the outer rock walls.
There are two doors into the arena and four bunkers (one on each corner of the arena) which contain HMGs where you can snipe players inside the arena area.

"New Kraze Bot Server"
  posted October 18 - 4:34AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have set up a KP4Ever server to run custom maps Gangbang with Kraze bots.
There are five maps in rotation and each map has four bots (except the Fear Factory map which has six due to its larger size).

The five maps in rotation are:-
Total Overdose
-=DamStorage=-
Ham'N'Cheez 2007
Look Back In Anger
Fear Factory beta

Hostname : KP4EVER'S Kraze Bot Custom Maps Server
IP : 216.234.116.11:31530
Maxclients : 16

So if no one is playing when you feel like a game you can play against bots for a while. Then, if a few ppl join, you can go play on another servr of your choice =)

The server will be up for a little while to see how it goes.

"Weekly Weekend Games"

"Cartman Custom Model"
  posted October 15 - 7:12AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I'm sure most of you know who Cartman is from Southpark. A few years ago {GT}Knight converted this model to Kingpin from Quake2. The original Q2 model was created by Brian Yee.
It's a nice looking model and a must for all southpark fans. When he is standing still he happily munches on some snacks (cheesy poofs?) but when he is running he carries his gun and looks angry. He wears the same angry expression when he is firing his weapon.
The model doesn't have Kingpin viewable weapon support so no matter what weapon he is using you will just see his custom weapon that he sports.
The model comes with a handful of skins and has some nice animations.

You can download the Cartman model from here



There is also a South Park sounds pack available which replaces sounds for the thug and runt model put together by [TCC]HELLFI$H . You can grab that one from here.
The sounds pack is in a pak file (Pak1) so first check in kingpin/main to see if you already have a Pak1.pak file.
Then extract the zipfile (pak1 file and readme) to your desktop where it will create a folder called cbtauntpak.
If you don't already have a pak1 in your main folder then just cut and paste pak1 into main.
If you do already have a pak1 then just rename the new Pak1 to another number you don't have between 2 and 9 and then cut and paste it ino your main folder.

And if you want the Southpark map shown in the screenshot you can get that one from here

"Weekly Thursday Night Game Of Exteme"

"Weekly Wednesday Night Game Of Hitmen"
  posted October 14 - 3:31AM EDT by Mr.Damage
If your looking for a game of KP on Wednesday nights why not drop in to our Da PlaygroundZ! Hitmen server. I'm going to try to set up games on our servers everynight of the week so if your looking for game and no one is around then drop into the designated server and hopeflly get a game going.
Don't be afraid to be the first person to join the server either as someone has to take the plunge and be the first one in :)

Details of the Weekly Wednesday Night Game:-

Name : KP4Ever's DA PlayGroundZ
Date : Every Wednesday Night
Time : 7.30pm EST (Chicago Time)
IP : 216.234.116.11:31526

To check what time it is where you are when the games are on check the World Clock site here.

If you recently downloaded Kingpin from Steam, GameTap or GoG and your copy doesn't work with Monkey Mod servers check out this fix here.

While you don't actally need to have the Hitmen files to play I suggest you get them for the Grappling Hook (or just the hook as it is commonly known). This allows you to cling to walls and ceiling while fragging away or to quickly manoeuvre around the map.
Just install the files into Kingpin/Hitmen and the hook will be ready to go. Check the binds.cfg file for the 3 keys that you can use to operate the hook.

You can grab the Hitmen files from here

"KPDM5 Converted To Left 4 Dead"
  posted October 13 - 9:32PM EDT by Mr.Damage

The map is for the Survival mode and features:-
- All original textures converted
- All textures in bumpmap
- Weapons and items in original places

You can check it out at L4DMap.com

I have also uploaded it to our 'Kingpin In Other Games' download section here

There is a video at YouTube, submitted by Krash highlighting this map and showing some fast paced, high adrenaline zombie killing. Those zombies are really fast and there is a lot of them :)
You can watch the video here


"Three Favourite Maps"
  posted October 12 - 4:31AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I just thought I wouls post about three of my favourite map that I have worked on in the last couple of years.

Ham'N'Cheez 2007 This is a small urban style map which is a revised vrsion of the original Ham'N'Cheez map which had been released in 2001. It has a tight layout, both indoors and outdoors area and ample weapons to keep the action going.
You can download Ham'N'Chhez 2007 from here



Look Back In Anger This is a medium sized, urban style, DM map which was inspired by KPDM1 and KPDM4. It has two main large areas, and some smaller rooms conected by corridors, stairs and ladders.

You can download Look Back In Anger from here



Fear Factory beta This is a large map which is a rebuild of a map from the excellent FPS game Fear. The map is set in and around a factory complex so there are lots of boxes and crates and bits of machinery situated around the map.
The central area of the map is the factory yard where there are large crates and a large truck rig containing a big container. This area has several exits to the inside of the factory where you will find many large and small rooms on two levels.

You can download Fear Factory beta from here


"New Deathmatch map - Total Overdose"
  posted October 10 - 2:02AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Total Oversdose by AccDownload


Acc has released his first map for Kingpin and it's a good one :)

Comments about the map from Acc:-
Second attempt at Quake II Engine Deathmatch map; A small (from two to four players -- four recommanded) multiplayer map loosely based on Total Overdose's "Grandioso Imports" (if you ever played the game, the area is located in Puerto Los Toros).
As stated it's a small DM map which uses both standard and some nice custom textures as well as a custom sky. There are some nice terrain features and the map has a nice tight layout. It features one of every weapon except the Rocket Launcher and has eight player spawns.

He has also included in the zipfile a new Runt skin (one body and three new heads) as well as route and bot files for use with Kraze bots ;)

Just extract the files from the zip to your kingpin folder.



Please download and check out this map and then you can leave Acc som comments about it in this forum post here. The post also includes more screenshots of the map.

"Team Heavy Metal Bagman Map"
  posted October 3 - 3:11AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is a Bagman map that was reelased in October of 2001 that we have never posted about at KP4Ever.

Team Heavy Metal is a 'two forts' style BM map and most of the textures are metal ones (hence the name I guess).

There are caches of weapons in the bases and the bases, or forts, are separated by water. The money drop is on a small island in the centre of this water. There is also a button there which sets off a water trap.

You can download the map here.
