Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), March 2018, 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: STUNTS
Build a map in stunt mode!

Deadline: March 29, 2018.

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:
Build a map in stunts mode.
All spots/checkpoints must be respawnable.
The author time cannot exceed 3 minutes.
Blockmixing is allowed.
TM Unlimiter requirement is not allowed.
PX tracks are not allowed. (Of course, you may have a partial PF section on your map!)
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) March 2nd and 29th, 2018.
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 four 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 your map is a creative and fun as possible with the restrictions. Judges will likely give you more points here if you get as creative as possible with the slingshot!
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. [subject to change due to nature of stunts mode]
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.

[b]This being said, we are looking for judges who are experts of stunt maps! The usual three (myself, sammon, enryx) don't have as much experience as we should and could definitely use some help. PM me if you're interested.

Good luck and have fun.

We hope many people participate!

Yep, just a normal stunt map. It's the first ever stunt mode theme, so I figured it should be pretty easy.
