This is a Payload map with smismass theme.

I was about to release this at the end of September 2021 but I wanted to hold off, since the original Halloween version Terror, was going to be featured within the game. I didnt want to reveal or cause confusion with that.

That being said, this is built on that map way earlier this fall. It has the same feature - changing payload track and lots of presents to add into the smismass theme.

If you find any issues or bugs, please let me know. Have fun and enjoy! Thanks.

@HopelessSituation - Ingame reports only go to Valve, not to any map makers. However the bug with cart is known to me. Ill fix that once i figure out a best solution. I dont think valve will fix it in game code but i'm pretty sure the cart returning backwards to track, that it didnt even originally travel through, is a game bug.

The map uses separate changing track system, that only one other map has (Brimstone) and i've found out its also affected. But it wasnt found untill few months ago. Theres many ways to fix it, but none i've come up with are good. For example I could stop the cart from going back to the wrong path (that doesnt exist) but the cart wouldnt fall back anymore through that spot.

I'll take a look at the map before the this years smismass event, when the map returns to the event cycle. It wouldnt be officially updated before that anyway. Thanks!

Not sure where to report a bug, but the cart came off the rails! link []. Also reported it as a bug in game, but not sure if that gets back to you.

@ICS Well, Smissmas is over and I can say that although I find Chilly much more tolerable than Terror, both versions are still bottom tier to me, like if I were to make a tier list, Chilly would be at the bottom. Both maps have one thing in common; They lack missed potential. If it were up to me, I would do something creative to the map because it just feels like a generic payload map. What Chilly needs is to be set in an amusement park. Imagine, a payload stage, set inside an amusement fairground for mercenaries with little nods to the previous Smissmas maps like Snowfall and Wutville. You can even try to have a rollercoaster built as part of the map so the coaster cars can act as instant death hazards like trains. Another thing that needs adding are snow making machines that look like air conditioners. One thing that bothered me was that while I love snow, it didn't make sense why it was snowing when there were no clouds in the top of the sky.

I would say that if terror wasn't added last scream fortress then people would love it.

This map is ok. I like the design and all, but I’d say it’s on the lower end of the spectrum when compared to other Payload maps.

I Agree with ICS here and with Scaypies. Harrasing the creator solves no issues. Valve picks what maps they want or not.
To ICS I wanna say this:
I like some of your maps, I am a fan of hellstone and moonbase. I have a lot of fun on those maps. So what I am going to say is my honest opinion and feedback to you.
I think you have found the formula, I can't describe it in another way. It's no secret that you get at least 1 map of yours into the game every year. Congrats on that part of course.
However please do something more interesting with your maps, terror, gravestone, brimstone look so much alike. The detailing is the same, the problems are the same and you don't test them out that much. Erebus feels like a map that should have been released/made in 2008. It has the same philosophy as dustbowl which doesnt really work in tf2 anymore with the new weapons,abilities etc.

I dont understand the hate from some of you towards this map. Read the maps description. It was bound to release no matter if it was added into the game or not. If thats an issue to you, then i cant fix that. Valve adds what they want and its simple as that, just like with items. If you dont like that, then direct your feedback to them.

I make maps because i like doing them and the maps play like how i would like them to play like. Some like them, some dont. Theres other maps for you to like if you dont like this one.

Harrassing me or anyone else involved with my maps is not going to lead anywhere. So stop it and if you really want to give feedback to this map, keep it constructive. Thanks.

@kreigar @gubey!!! DOGSHIT takes ngl
I find it funny that people feel the need to put in the effort to complain about maps and insult the creator when they can just disable it for their casual searches for a trillionth of said effort. TF2 gets next to no content as it is, and then when we do get some the community openly mocks half of it. I'm not going to say that rehashed content is amazing either but at least the map itself is good and not a map in the current non-holiday rotation. If you want to hate valve I get that fully, but hating on the creators is a really good way to get them to leave

you have zero fucking creativity
this is just a lazily reskined terror (Which YOU made btw)
but i get it you and your team have gotten a lot of maps in the game because valve is too lazy to actually care about quality
don't expect people to like a map because its in the game I like when new maps are added in the game. not some fucking themed reskin
