MTC April 2016 - 10 different Blocks 04 April 2016 10:40:59  

    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC), April 2016.

    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: 10 different blocks
    You have to pick 10 different blocks and only use those to build your map
    • Start, checkpoints and finish are free, i.e. they don't count for the 10 different blocks.
    • In one corner of you map please place all the 10 different blocks you chose. This way it is easier ingame to see what you picked.
    • Attach a picture or list of block names+IDs (X-X-X , 1-3-2,...) to your submission post. (see example)
    • No Custom objects allowed
    • Terraforming is free

  • Deadline
    All tracks should be submitted before the end of Sunday 17, April 2016 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)

  • General Rules
    • 64x64 basemap is allowed.
    • Track-/Laplength below 2min
    • No Custom objects allowed
    • Envimixing allowed
    • Blockmixing allowed
    • Custom Titlepacks forbidden
    • 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 well 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 :)

I thought two weeks was enough.
If there are some others in the next 3 days asking for more time, I can extend the deadline. That's a very easy thing. I simply need to change a number ;)

nope, the scenery must be of these 10 blocks too ;)

Yeah I see, custom TPs don't make sense:
Custom TP forbidden

I didn't plan on building something anyways. The problem with these builds is the time investement. Which means i either need to have an idea i would rather die than not building it or i need the vacation in between semesters of my university (If you look at the months i participated, you'll see it really fits to the second :p) Something like the 15 seconds track is always nice tho, as it lowers the time to an at least somewhat exceptable level:d

But yeah who cares what i'm writing -- Good luck everyone :)

Does terraforming count towards the 10 blocks limit or can use it freely?

Edit-bonus question: can we use custom cp/start/end?
