Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), May 2017, hosted by NitroGuy!

In the MTC, you must build a track on a given theme. All of the entered tracks will be rated by judges and a winner will be found.

The Details:
Let's have a look at the details of the contest:

Theme of the Month: Symmetric tracks
This theme is simple-make a symmetric map!

Deadline: May 28, 2017.

Prizes:
The winner will be able to pick a track to showcase on the front page* + 5000 coppers
3000 coppers
1500 coppers

*The track can be a self-made creation or the work of someone else (which has got a maximum of 10 awards already).


The rules:
Your map must be a symmetric map
Only race maps are allowed.
All spots/checkpoints must be respawnable.
Blockmixing is allowed.
TM Unlimiter requirement is not allowed.
PX tracks are allowed....but are definitely not ideal for this theme.
You may submit one track only.
Include the letter combination MTC somewhere in the track name so it can be easily identified.
Example: "Here is my cool map(MTC)".
The track must have been uploaded to the exchange between (and including) May 3rd and 28th, 2017.
The track must be a work of yours - remixes of other tracks are not allowed.
Updating your track within the deadline is allowed.

General tips:
The "General tips" are just recommendations. You won't get disqualified if you do not follow them, but they tend to help your track and its appreciation by general player population.

Remember that you have got about three weeks to build your track. Take some time for testing, or let others test your track in the Beta Area.
Don't forget to check your track for unintentional shortcuts.
A MediaTracker GPS showing the route does not relieve you of your moral obligation to provide guidance during the race (signs or other visual hints on where to go).
Always provide your track on TMX with a screenshot that shows something from the track, and add a description of what can people expect if they play your track.
You will get more points in the "theme" category if you have a nice variation of ideas and get creative with the symmetry. Try to make some nice reuses to keep your map interesting.

Important: To enter a track, simply upload it and post your submission in this thread.

The Judging System:
A number of judges will rate the tracks on the following points:

Design – Flow, smoothness, speed, transitions, etc. The general "feel" of the track. Max. 20 points/judge.
Polishing – Scenery, MediaTracker, signage, etc. Final touches that can make the track appear better. Max. 10 points/judge.
Fun Factor – Depending on how fun the judges find your track. Max. 10 points/judge.
Theme / Creativity – Depending on how you create your track within the given guidelines. The less restricted your track feels, the more points you'll get on this area. Max. 10 points/judge.

Regarding the final results, the lowest and highest score of each track will be deleted and the average of the "medium scores" decides - if the number of judges is at least 5.

Good luck and have fun.

We hope many people participate!

I think simply put if you see the track from above it has to have a symmetry axis
you know, like this



I am not sure of any other detail


Also we are thinking of making a 2 month MTC in the summer with a more complex theme, just a hint

A couple updates to the rules:

-for clarification, scenery must also be symmetric.
-also for clarification, double path is, of course, allowed.

-the start & finish can also reflect each other (see here). however, this kind of map can be much more difficult to build

So that means the paths that you can choose have to have no CP?

They can have cps, but they will have to be put symmetrically as well.
