MTC December 2015 - Double Five 01 December 2015 23:11:34  

    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC), December 2015.

    In the MTC your task is to build a track on a given theme (see below). Later on, all of the entered tracks will be rated and a winner will be found.

  • Theme of the Month: Double Five
    The building area is limited to two five blocks wide rows, which are separated by a gap of one block width.
    • Two building areas of 5*[full map length] separated by a 1*[full map length] gap. (e.g. 5*32 in Canyon)
    • You have to cross the gap in the middle at least twice. (Doesn't matter if in the air or on the ground)
    • You can build terraforming wherever you want
    • Clips/connectors of blocks are allowed to reach outside the building area (e.g. white/red connectors that show in the editor for Canyon GP road)
    • Signs are excluded from the building area restriction, i.e. you can place signs anywhere.
    • update: Scenery must be build inside the two 5*x building areas, too. (except for terraforming)
    • update: 64x64 basemap is allowed.

  • Deadline
    All tracks should be submitted before the end of 20, December 2015 PDT.

  • Prize
    :gold: Honour and the right to brag! (Jozii used to say that. I hope anyone still remembers him? :p)
    :gold: The top 3 winners will receive a showcase of a track of their choice (< 10 awards)
    :gold: Points for the adventcalendar as follows:
    • :gold: 1st place - 20 points
    • :silver: 2nd place - adjusted point number depending on the final votes
    • :bronze: ...
    • last place - at least 5 points

  • General Rules
    • Track-/Laplength below 2min
    • Custom objects allowed
    • Envimixing allowed
    • Blockmixing allowed
    • Custom Titlepacks allowed
    • No PressForward, PressBackward or press[AnyKey]-maps
    • MTC in mapname
    • 1 map per author

  • How to submit
    • To enter a track, simply upload it and post a link to your submission in the submission thread.
    • You can update your map within the deadline as many times as you want.

  • Judging
    We'll use the well known public judging system:
    • Everyone is allowed to judge, even players who submitted a map (give your own map a 10)
    • Every map will be judged with marks from 1 (bad) to 10 (good).
    • Note that you have to judge a stage entirely, you cannot judge only half of it.
      More details will appear after submission ends

    Good luck, and as always: If you have any questions, please ask :)

only signs are allowed outside the building area.
Scenery outside the area is not allowed (except for terraforming ;))

Yeah I'm fine with using the 64x64 basemap. ;)

The gap needs to have the same size everywhere and that is one block wide. (see the example pictures) ;)
