Millstone is a community-created winter themed Payload map with a longer track and more points to capture than any official-release single-stage Payload map. The map has gifts spawning on Smissmas, Birthday, and Valentines events, visible only at those times.

Hellstone, a Halloween version of the map, was released with the Scream Fortress 2015 update.

Development history

Originally, the map started as a 3 Control Point Attack/Defend map; but after several iterations and themes, snowy scenery was the thing that worked best. During development, the spawns were also reversed, some areas changed, some were cut out from the map completely. Overall, there has been over 100 different iterations of this map to date.

A later (and competitively accepted) version is called pl_millstone_ugc_7. It introduces changes made after the Halloween version went live and after the map was tested and played in the UGC Highlander League. Changes were made upon player feedback, improving the map.
