MTC August 2019: Corners of the World 01 August 2019 20:09:18  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) August 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: Corners of the World 📐
    Suggested by disturbio

    Have your route go over all 4 corners of the editable map




    Theme Rules

    • The player has to drive over each corner of the mapping area
    • Only the standard 32x32 and 48x48 maps are allowed
    • Block height is not restricted



    Allowed

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

    Not Allowed

    • 64x64 maps
    • 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: World Exploration (MTC) ; [mtc] No Cutting Corners ; MTC – NW->SW->SE->NE (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 Friday, August 30th at midnight PST
    • Tracks submitted within the deadline will have August 31st to make any last minute edits
    • Public voting will go from September 1st to September 8th
    • Results will be posted September 9th at the earliest

    Prizes

    :gold: The first place winner will get to choose a theme for November
    :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

    • ***Upload your map to this map-pack and optionally post a link to your map 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 :)

I was planning on making a submission to this, but somehow - and I don't know why - my game crashes whenever I try to compute the shadows of the map I had made. It has been made and with an AT put in place, but the shadows are causing me issues.

(This has been approved for the 'late submission' due to some errors with computing shadows I had with it)

Well done to the top three... And I'm glad that I did manage to get 4th overall with an environment which I know I can be better at when it comes to mapping.

As for the signs, I am planning on eventually remaking them into a better themed signpack.
