MTC October 2019: Suspense Flick 01 October 2019 11:21:06  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) October 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: Suspense Flick👻

    Create a sense of build-up and fearful anticipation through the length of your track




    Theme Rules

    • From the start of your track to the end, make the player feel like the track is leading towards something bad with the feeling growing stronger the further into the track you get
    • Create the sense/feeling however you like, e.g. with a story, with scenery getting spookier, have the track get more difficult or wild, etc.
    • The sense/feeling doesn't have to be a straight line, make it wobble :p (jump scares, false sense of safety...)
    • It's Halloween month, the more thematic the better!



    Allowed

    • All environments and titlepacks
    • Blockmixing
    • Embedded items
    • Custom time of day
    • Mods (encouraged)
    • 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: Descent to the Dark (MTC) ; [mtc] Chasing Dread ; MTC – The Creature that Lies Beyond (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 Wednesday, October 30th *Saturday, November 2nd* at midnight PST
    • Tracks submitted within the deadline will have October 31st *November 2nd* to make any last minute edits
    • Public voting will go from November 3rd* to November 10th*, or until the internal judging is finished
    • Results will be posted November 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

    • ***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 :)

October 2019 Public Voting Link: https://bit.ly/2CabpXq


This month there's 4 maps! Download them 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:

3.7 - This was not 2 spooky 4 me.

  • 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
  • The mixture will be 70/30 if there is 1 public voter, 60/40 for 2-3, and 50/50 for 4+

A panel of judges will also judge the maps.

All public voting will soft close on November 10th, 2019 at midnight PST. After that you'll have until the internal judges complete their voting.
