[OLD] KO -Track building (2) 18 January 2014 11:48:25  
We always need new Knockout maps for our weekly competition. Any player is able to submit tracks, there is no prerequisite or limitation other than the map criteria. We will summarise here which map groups are open for track submissions. Detailed information will be posted in this thread when groups are created or closed. Check this first post regularly for current status.

The critera for making KO maps are as follows
o Maps must be secret, not uploaded anywhere else, or played anywhere else
o Include the relevent KO prefix in the name.... ie KO1 MapName, KO3 - MapName
o Keep the layout clear, GPS should never be needed
o Use only standard Nadeo sign or reliable signs with locators (such as Mania Exchange / TMX hosted signs)
o There should be no parts that require perfection in speed ie jumps etc
o Make sure all checkpoints respawnable
o The map should be finishable on your first run without training

Note: The above rules are generic, there may on occasions be special conditions


We have the following map pools open for submission

Stadium Valley
KO3 : Track length 40 to 50 seconds

Stadium Valley
KO4 : Track length 35 to 39 seconds (author time)

CanyonStadium Valley
KO5 :EnviroMix -Track length 40 to 50 seconds

Canyon Stadium Valley
KO6 :Laps -Lap length around 60 seconds

Uploading KO Maps
o Staying logged in as yourself...
o Upload your map here: Knockout Upload Page
o The map appears in the Knockout Uploads List and on your maps list
o The map is not downloadable by anyone other than the MX moderators

If your map is approved
o We move your map to the relevant Knockout Group

If your map requires modification
o We move your map to the Modifications Needed List
o Please read comments and update the map
o Please reply to our comment on the track page so we see what you have done.
o We will check the list for when maps have been modified.

If your map is rejected
o If your map is rejected, this means the map is unsuitable
o We move your map to the Rejects List
o We will hide your map (in author settings) (you can unhide as you wish)
o We will leave an explanation in the comments section
o It means a huge amount of work would be needed for the map to be suitable.

NOTE: There is no need to post in this thread that you have uploaded maps !

We have made some changes to how uploading KO maps is now done. The main things are that you now do it from your own account via special upload link, and the maps are allocated into map groups, which everyone can view....If we don't explain it well enough below, please just ask...

What are map groups?
Map groups are a way of grouping maps together under a common listing, and applying particular rules to the list. Maps in a group still exist under your normal account, but they are also part of the group.

Any map which is part of a Knockout map group, is protected from general download. Replays are allowed, but can not be downloaded. Awards & Comments are allowed. The maps lists are visible to everyone.

Uploading KO Maps
o Staying logged in as yourself...
o Upload your map here: Knockout Upload Page
o The map appears in the Knockout Uploads List and on your maps list
o The map is not downloadable by anyone other than the MX moderators

KO Map Groups
KO1 Stadium
KO2 Stadium
KO1 Valley
KO2 Valley
KO1 Canyon
KO2 Canyon
KO3 Canyon
KO4 Canyon
KO6 Canyon

Check the lists to see if your map is waiting to be tested, or has been moved.

KO6 (laps) will be opened the same time as KO3/4 for valley and stadium.
So please fill those groups first:p

You map is on KO2 Valley group, but it is unreleased, either release it, or change search filters for the listing.
