"Power2 Mod"
  posted October 18 - 4:13AM EDT by Mr.Damage
One of the mods I worked on is the Power2 Mod which was released in March 2005. It was created by, basically, the same talented team that worked on the COLORS CTF Mod.

Waht is the mod about? Well...
Power2 Mod is a team based, capture and hold style game similar in play to the Unreal Tournament mod 'Domination' There are three control points that have to be captured and defended. The two opposing teams are called Warriors and Rogues.



A control point is captured by touching it - when it has been captured its color will change to red if you are a Warrior, and blue if you are a Rogue - The team as a whole gets 1 point each 5 seconds for each control point they have captured.

A control point cannot be recaptured within 10 seconds of capture.



A level can end in a number of ways:
# The control point points limit is reached.
# The map timelimit is reached.
# The frag limit is reached.

"Xatrix Texture Packs"
  posted October 11 - 2:30AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Just a reminder to any mappers out there that we have two Xatrix Texture packs hosted here at KP4Ever.

The first one was released by Xatrix and features textures that were created by them but never made it into the game.

The second was put together by Fredz. The pack contains about 60 new textures, 50 sounds and a couple of skins. These were used in the demo but didn't get used in the retail version of Kingpin. Fredz named this pack Xatrix Texture Pack2

Fredz recommends installing the original Xatrix Texture pack first. Then extract the files in Fredz new pack to your Kingpin folder.

Xatrix Texture Pack2

After Fredz released the texture pack I retextured my Frag'N'Die2 map with these textures to showe them off and called the map Frag'N'Die2 Fredz.
If you want to see these textures in an actual map then grab the Frag'N'Die2 Fredz map from here.


"COLORS Capture The Flag Mod"
  posted October 11 - 2:12AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Another of my favourite Kingpin Mods is the 'COLORS' Capture the Flag mod.

Most ppl know CTF mods but if you don't it's basically team based game play where the idea is to attack the other teams base, capture their flag, then take it back to your base. You must touch your base flag when carrying the enemy flag in order to score - If your flag isn't at your base when you return, you or your team must get it back to gain points & ultimately Captures.



When it was released back in Junoe of 2002 it featured:-

Ten new maps (five original & five converted from Baggy). Since the release of the mod many more CTF maps have been released.

Single Player props enabled and breakable items such as crates and windows etc

Weather efffects like rain and snow can be addded to maps

New team player skins by Dirty Dawg

Ability to Curse by pressing X,Y,Z key`s (many new taunts)

New Harpoon model (the Harpoon is our replacement for the grappling hook)



You can get the required files from here:-

Again, if a few ppl show an interest I can put a KP4Ever CTF server up.

"Crash Squad Mod"
  posted October 9 - 6:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage
One of my favourite Kingpin mods would have to be the Crash Squad Mod and many ppl think its's the best mod ever created for Kingpin.

For anyone that doesn't know this mod here is some info:-

CRASH Squad is a multiplayer mod about the struggle between the CRASH Squad, LA's anti-gang suppression unit and the Crenshaw Mafia, a notorious LA street gang.
The game play is team-based and each scenario has its own objectives. Each team has it's own subset of weapons. Weapons include pistols, shotguns, automatic weapons, assault rifles and sniper rifles along with hand weapons.

There are two scenarios:-
VIP Rescue
The CRASH Squad must escort a VIP through the city of Los Angeles to his safety while the Crenshaw Mafia attempt to stop them.

Bombing
The Crenshaw Mafia must bomb one of two bombing sites while the CRASH Squad must try to stop them or defuse the bomb after it's been placed.

You can get the required Crash Squad files from here:-

Windows Server Files
Linux Server Files
Client Files

If a few ppl show an interest I can put a KP4Ever Crash Squad server up.
