Back in 2000 Tunnleram released two betas of a death match map called Assassins Mountain Stream. We already hosted beta2 but I have just uploaded beta4.
Assassins Mountain Stream beta2 is a medium sized death match map set in mountainous area with lots of water. There are ample weapons and items and the map has a good layout. Be careful in the water though as there is a strong current.
You can download Assassins Mountain Stream beta2 from here.
Assassins Mountain Stream beta4 is a much larger version of the map. Tunnleram added a large complex to the map with several areas.

Here is an older, medium sized, Bagman map made by Propane. It's a fairly standard 'two forts' style map with a couple of nice features like a reflective floor and giant spinning globe. There are the usual rooms in the bases containing weapons and armour and the safes have to be opened by pressing a small switch which is nearby. The area between the two bases is fairly plain with just the money drop in the centre.
Here is the third and, probably, the most popular of the original models that have been made for Kingpin. It was made by Evilbunny and was the first custom model released for Kingpin.
Anthea is actually two models as the zipfile also contains the Leah expansion pack which adds more skins, more heads and several extras such as Raybans & Pink sunnys, a collar for the leather jacket, chrome thigh boots and a Bunny costume (ears and tail). The model has Kingpin vweap support except you see the AK47 instead of the HMG.
One of the maps we have been playing recently on the Newskool Fragfest server is Bridge Arena by AB|Jones.
Bridge Arena is a small, arena style, death match map which contains 4 buildings in each corner of the map all connected by small bridges. There is also a small electrical station in the middle of the map and rivers of slime underneath each bridge.
There are ample weapons and items in this map including two cooling mods on little window ledges.
For those who don't know Power2 is a team based capture and hold mod. Each map contains three control points which the two teams must control to gain points and win the round.
The update to the Power2 mod includes adding the new Monkey Mod features, adding the harpoon grappling hook and making it so that when a team captures a control point it stops spinning for five seconds and the other team can't capture it until it starts spinning again.
The second of the original player models made for Kingpin is Fallen Angel which was made by $P1@T.
This is a male player model and is a devil with a green skin and white wings. There is one head and body skin and two legs skins. The model has full Kingpin vweap support (which means you will see the model using all the different Kingpin weapons).
You can download the Fallen Angel (male_devil) player model from here.
There was some conjecture during the Thursday death match game that EvilBunny had dropped in for a game. Evilbunny was a modeller back in the early days of Kingpin.
It made me think about the many models that had been made for Kingpin. Of all these models only three are original models made for Kingpin with the rest being converted from other games.
One of the original models is Anna Louise. It's a female player model and was made by Hellhound. The model is a young woman who is wearing a baseball helmet and looks like she can take care of herself. The model comes with just one skin, but with accesories including rayban glasses and the backpack. The model has KP vweap support and uses a baseball bat instead of the pipe.
I have uploaded an older death match map called JWS1B, which was made by JWS.
It is a smallish one room map that only features the shotgun, tommy gun and one grenade launcher. There are many boxes in the room and there are some areas of the room that are light and some other areas that are a bit darker.
Now that Monkey Harris has added a rocket mode to the latest Monkey Mod I thought it would be a good time to post about this older map called Rocket Arena.
Rocket Arena, by Tilak is a small, arena style, map with the only weapons being rocket launchers. It does include rocket ammo, pistol mods, armour and health packs too. The map also containes several jump pads to get you up to the second level walkways and around the map. With the only wepaon being the rocket launcher the action is pretty frantic.

Here is a screenie from an unplanned game on Macanah's death match FFA server last night. Two of the guys in the shot hadn't played for thirteen years or so but recently bought the game from GoG.com and went lookign for a game.
We are still seeing a few new players and some older players returning to the game.
So I thought I would repost about the information I put together for new players. It's basically helpful information for new players which includes a whole bunch of links to files that will enhance your Kingpin experience.
If you has just bought Kingpin from Steam, GOG or Desura, or if you has just started playing again after being away for many years this information with be of value to you.
G()^T has a new Youtube video channel dedicated to Kingpin vidos.
So far he has two short videos of his upcoming Codmod highlighting the drone and an unfinished turret model. It also features videos of recent games including the game of Rocket mode death match last Thursday.
