      Try swapping the names of the files for the normal map and the winter map, but don't blame me if your game breaks and you have to reinstall :P

        Won't happen. You will most likely get an error saying your map differs from the server one.

          You can play it vs bot, though. Before trying this steps you may have to enable console first.
          In console, type and enter these commands :

          sv_lan 1 (this enables LAN/Local game)
          sv_cheats 1 (this enables cheats)
          dota_bot_set_difficulty x (this sets bot difficulty, where x is 0/1/2/3/4 that stands for Passive/Easy/Normal/Hard/Unfair)
          dota_force_gamemode x (this sets game mode, where x will explained below)
          jointeam x (this assigns which team will you join, where x is good/bad that stands for Radiant/Dire
          dota_start_ai_game 1 (this enables bot to your game)
          map dota_winter.bsp (this enables dota 2 winter map as you wish to your game. if you want another maps such as diretide map or autumn map, just try to open those map by selecting it in drop down console command after typing map dota.)

          dota_force_gamemode x number information :
          1. All Pick
          2. Captain's Mode
          3. Random Draft
          4. Single Draft
          5. All Random
          6. Heroes for Beginners
          7. Diretide
          8. Reverse Captain's Mode
          9. The Greeviling
          10. Tutorial
          11. Mid Only
          12. Least Played
          13. New Player Pool (same as 6 except with 1 minute picking time and non-playable heroes grayedout instead of not visible)Everything else after 13 shows up as #game_mode_xx, and is just all pick.



          Follow step by step carefully or your game won't work.

                make sure sv_cheats 1 already entered in console.

                try this dota_dev player_givegold x
                where x is the amount of gold u wanted.
                and notice that between dev and player, IS a space.

                    There's a mod that allows you to do this, but the map is only for the Radiant side, the Dire side looks really horrible, you just see white blocks.
