MTC March 2019: Chasing Cars 01 March 2019 18:19:55  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) March 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: Chasing Cars
    (Theme by A Bored Person for winning January's MTC)

    Build a chase map that's challenging for both amateurs and pros




    Theme Rules:

    • You have to use a multi-lap start. The amount of laps should be at least 3 for testing purposes
    • Flying lap length should be between 1-2 minutes
    • The track can be challenging by being either difficult to complete or by being hard to master
    • How smoothly one lap transitions into another will have a significant influence on your theme score



    Allowed:

    • All environments
    • Blockmixing
    • Embedded items
    • Custom time of day
    • Envi-mix titlepacks

    Not Allowed:

    • Press Forward, Left, Right, or similar tracks
    • Mods
    • TMUF cars



    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: Steeplechase (MTC) ; [mtc] One Foot Behind the Other ; MTC – Sirens in my Rearview (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



    Deadlines

    • Your track should be uploaded before the end of Saturday, March 30th at midnight PST
    • Public voting will go from April 1st to April 8th
    • Results will be posted April 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)



    How to Submit

    • To submit a track, upload it to MX and post a link to your submission in this 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
    We will use a mixture of 70/30 between internal judging and public voting if there is 1 public voter, 60/40 for 2-3, and 50/50 for 4+

    • 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 mixture of the average public score and the average internal score
    • You must have access to all environments and vote on all maps for your votes to count

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

A flying lap is any lap where you pass the start/finish with speed. The time you get on a flying lap will always be quicker than that on a non-flying lap simply because a non-flying lap has you starting from a standstill.

So I decided to make things hard for myself, and made a Fullspeed map that fits the requirements. Turns out, it's bleeding hard to make an FS track that long.
