Description
Hell has frozen ages ago but some of the halloween spirit still lives in this map. A new version consisting competitive changes from UGC league and Halloween changes from few years back are now incorporated into the same map. As well as everything that has changed within the past 3 years since!

The map has been chrismas spirited with smismass theme and some bugs were fixed 17th of December 2020.

- Played two times in UGC Highlander league. Season 20 & also in the grand finale! Map was also played on season 22!
- Won 2nd place in gamebanana.com winter worlds mapping contest[tf2.gamebanana.com]
- Original map for the official Halloween themed map Hellstone. However, this map is very different from that regarding how it plays and has extra ways in and out.
- Was played on Highlander Experimental Cup on 16th of Dec 2018! http://exp.rgl.gg/Public/Articles/Default.aspx?a=1178

The pl_millstone_event exists already on your machine as Hellstone. To run this millstone, you need to subscribe as you did and type into the console:
map workshop/795101929

or you can go into STEAM\steamapps\workshop\content\440\795101929 and move the file from there to your tf/maps folder and then just find the map from menus to play it.

New update out to the map. Now even more christmas decorated and several visual and some gameplay issues resolved. Perhaps you will see maps like this one in future smismass updates. If one ever gets done again, rather than some of the maps you saw in it in 2020. I do hope it would be included in the game, because its a solid map, tested competitively even and plays good.

This map has always been a bit special for me, as it was the first TF2 map i ever created. Its been aged in 10 years quite a bit. Thanks to everyone who has been with be along this journey.

That being said, i know competitive community rather has gameplay over visual. But the balcony you suggested, would propably look ugly when covered with slanted roof. Players usually learn out anyway which areas area accessible and which are not with 1 jump so i'd rather not change that rooftop for now.

Thanks for the input. If I understood you wrong, please correct me!

I actually have tested the suggestion you have for the sniper sightline, If i understood you correctly. This basically also nullifies the BLU snipers sights towards the last and RED snipers sights towards the 4th. Makes it a lot easier for BLU to push on. There are only few limited ways forth and back at the last, so it makes BLU more dominant on that area.

Map designing is not always easy and theres more than 100 versions of this map out there. This is the oldest map that i have done, started 8 years ago and slowly been refined into a better map. Even better playing than the halloween version thats already in the game while this isnt. (1/2)
