MTC May 2019: Do You Know De Wey 01 May 2019 15:32:24  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) May 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: Do You Know De Wey ✂️
    (suggested by Alcator and lolig)

    Work in 3+ hidden cuts into your map




    Theme Rules

    • Create at least 3 intentional cuts that are faster than the obvious route
    • The cuts should be difficult to spot
    • Internal judging will consider the route with the cuts over the regular route
    • How well the cuts flow with the map will have a large influence on your score



    Allowed

    • All environments and titlepacks
    • Blockmixing
    • Embedded items
    • Custom time of day
    • Mods
    • TMUF cars

    Not Allowed

    • Press Forward, Left, Right, or similar tracks
    • Maps that require Openplanet
    • Trial maps



    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: Ninja Route (MTC) ; [mtc] That is Not Da Wae ; MTC – Would the Real Path Please Stand Up (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 Thursday, May 30th at midnight PST
    • Tracks submitted within the deadline will have May 31st to make any last minute edits
    • Public voting will go from June 1st to June 8th
    • Results will be posted June 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 :)

Do the cuts have to cut separate parts of the track (so the fastest run would have 3 cuts in it) or can they overlap (meaning there may be a couple different cuts you could do or link together to get the fastest run)?

They should be separate. When you return to the regular route the cut ends.

Is driving a different route counted as only 1 cut?

No, you don't have to make 3 separate routes (if I understand you correctly). You should be able to do all the cuts in one run.

So cuts that work often are good? #riolu004flashbacks
