did you get put into a game of PL_chilly and thought, “hey this looks familiar” here is proof that ICS is lazy and not deserving of a smissmas map in the game
 
 

Similarities in texture areas in terror and chilly

it is beyond a doubt that the creator has reused his level design. But what puts acceptable into lazy is the amount of shameless reuse in the map
 
 
Please note these two pictures outside of BLU spawn
 
 
on Terror (pyro)
 
 
Proof that ICS is talentless and lazy - Team Fortress 2 - similarities in texture areas in terror and chilly - 076661591
 
 
there are 3 main and distinct texture areas at spawn
 
-Start of payload which is concrete
 
-a barren and beaten dirt path on which the payload tracks reside
 
-and a grassy side area to left of the cart
 
 
now note Chilly (scout)
 
 
Proof that ICS is talentless and lazy - Team Fortress 2 - similarities in texture areas in terror and chilly - 88C07885E
 
 
as before there are 3 distinct texture areas
 
-photorealistic snow at payload start
 
-packed snow texture for payload track area
 
-a soft snow texture to the left of the track
 

 
please note where the photorealistic snow and concrete textures are and it is beyond a resonable doubt that ICS and his team lazily replaced the concrete texturefor a out of place snow texture also to note when the two other snow textures meet you can see where each texture ends as if he just swapped out each texture in the area
 
 
there are many more examples of brazen texture swapping

Why do hate this map

Its a shameless and low effort reskin with absolutley ZERO things of note. Im all for reskins when done properly but when someone just lazily slaps a new coat of paint on something, does not make it better or new
 
 
another thing to note i tolerated terrorbecause it was a halloween map with halloween spells but now that you can play terror without the spells and experience it for what it is and all you’re left with is a bad map that is honestlythe worst payload map in the game it’s fun to play on a bad map with spells (helltower), it’s not fun to play a bad map with egregious visual work
 
 
A noteable reskin that actually does well is snowcross, unlike Chilly the map creator actually put in some effort and didn’t just copy and paste doublecross with a winter theme, he went out of his way to add some character to the map and make it his own
 
a Greysnowmann and oliviasnowmann (speculatory)

this is what a good reskin looks like, the map maker goes out of their way to drastically change the lighting and surroundings of the environment just ever so subtly to make you feel like its smissmas while also adding in their own flair to difference it from the original, not just a low effort wintertime theme (wutvile sucks btw i know)
