MTC November 2019: Hokey Pokey 02 November 2019 19:02:24  


    Welcome to the ManiaExchange Monthly Track Contest (MTC) November 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: Hokey Pokey 🏦
    Theme by Nanoursporc for winning in August

    Make your track alternate from being indoors to being outdoors




    Theme Rules

    • Build a structure or a cluster of scenery that can clearly be seen as being "indoors"
    • Have your route go in and out or vice versa of the indoor area at least 3 times (3 times going in and 3 times going out)
    • Each time you switch to being either indoors or outdoors, the track must continue for at least 5 seconds before switching again
    • The track can enter and exit from any angle, in any way possible



    Allowed

    • All environments and titlepacks
    • Blockmixing
    • Embedded items
    • Custom time of day
    • Mods
    • TMUF cars
    • 64x64 maps

    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: In & Out Burger (MTC) ; [mtc] Should I Stay or Should I Go Now ; MTC – Agoraphobia (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, November 29th at midnight PST
    • Tracks submitted within the deadline will have November 30th to make any last minute edits
    • Public voting will go from December 1st to December 8th, or until the internal judging is finished
    • Results will be posted December 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 :)

About multilap map, is it 3 times in total, or 3 times per lap? I would say per lap but I just want to make sure

This month there's 9 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:

6 - I really felt the flow going in, but transitioning out just left me wanting more...

All public voting will soft close on December 8th, 2019 at midnight PST. After that you'll have until the internal judges complete their voting.

Well. Some maps were good, some were clearly much better than mine, while others were bad...

...And one was so cringe-worthy, I'm surprised my scoring system gave it what it did.

In any case...
