MTC January 2019: New Year, New Ideas 03 January 2019 03:59:14  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) January 2019 hosted by Rexine!

    In the MTC your task is to build a track on a given theme. Later, all the submitted tracks are rated and a winner is determined.

    Theme of the Month: New Year, New Ideas
    Make a track with fresh designs for the start of 2019




    Allowed:

    • All environments
    • Blockmixing
    • Embedded items
    • Custom time of day
    • Mods
    • Envi-mix, Competition, and RPG Titlepacks
    • TMUF cars

    Not Allowed:

    • Press Forward, Left, Right, or similar tracks



    General Rules

    • You may submit one track maximum
    • Duo tracks are allowed, but each map counts as one track for each author involved
    • MTC should be present in the track name
      Examples: Ball Drop (MTC) ; [mtc] MTC in 2k19 ; MTC - New Years Resolution (check that any special characters do not break in the TM or MX track name)
    • The track should be built in the most recent version of the game

    Tips

    • Don't hold back if you have a risky idea. This MTC, taking risks will be rewarded more than usual
    • Try not to get caught up in your usual track building workflow
    • Consider taking a look at the mainstream style of the type of track you decide to make to get a clearer perspective before you start your map



    Deadlines

    • Your track should be uploaded before the end of Thursday, January 30th at midnight PST
    • Public voting will go from February 1st to February 8th
    • Results will be posted February 9th at the earliest

    Prizes

    :gold: Honour and the right to brag! (Jozii used to say that. I hope some still remember him? :p)
    :gold: The top 3 winners will receive a showcase of a track of their choice (< 10 awards)
    :gold: The main winner can choose to decide a theme for the March or April 2019 MTC (depending on availability)



    How to Submit

    • To submit a track, upload it to MX and post a link to your submission here:
      MTC January 2019: Submissions Thread
    • You can update your track within the deadline as many times as you want
    • Submitted courses may be updated within 24 hours of submissions closing, in case of any necessary last minute changes. New courses may NOT be submitted in this time frame
    • Updating your track after the revision deadline has passed will lead to a disqualification. You are free to update your track once the results are published

    Judging: Public and internal
    This month we will use a 75/25 mixture of the internal judging system and the public votes

    • Everyone is allowed to judge including players who submitted a track, but the vote for your own track will not count (give your own map a 10)
    • You must have access to all environments and vote for all tracks for your votes to count
    • Every track will be judged with marks from 1 (bad) to 10 (good)
    • The internal judging will note some detailed feedback with points based on categories
      Theme [20p], Creativity [10p], Funfactor [10p], Detailwork/Scenery/MT [10p]

Good luck!
If you have any questions, please ask :)

Submissions are closed! Mappers that submitted tracks still have the rest of today to make changes to their tracks. After that the public voting sheet will be posted and voting will last one week.

January 2019 Public Voting Link: https://goo.gl/forms/dTwa2KEMLvk2gRUb2


There are 12 MTC entries. Download them all here.

In the voting sheet, give your score before your feedback (0 to 10, decimals are allowed). If you have comments, leave them right after your score. For example:

7.8 - Too much water!

  • Everyone is allowed to judge, even players who submitted a map (your score on your own map will be removed, so give it whatever you want!)
  • Every map will be judged with a decimal number from 0 (bad) to 10 (good). All votes greater than/equal to 7 or less than/equal to 4 require constructive feedback on why you gave it that score
  • Note that you have to judge a stage entirely! You cannot judge only half of it. If you are not able to finish the map, your vote can still count! Please only leave that as a very last resort, and still judge the entire map fairly
  • You need to verify your vote by making a post here (for example: "Voted :done:")
  • One best and one worst vote for each map will be ignored if more than 10 people vote
  • The overall score will be a 75/25 mixture of the average internal score and the average public score
  • You must have access to and vote on all maps for your votes to count



A panel of judges will also judge the maps.
This internal voting will follow the format of:
Theme (20p) | Creativity (10p) | Fun (10p) | Detail (10p)

All public voting will close on February 8th, 2019 at midnight PST.
