Total TMX Nutter!


Status of this contest:

o Objective: Build a track of 15 seconds or less.
o Current activity: Tracks are accepted – submit your own by linking to it in this thread!
o Deadline: Saturday, 10th of November 2007

It’s been quite some time since I hosted a contest here at TMX, especially since I quit as the host of the TMX Monthly Track Contest. But now I’m back, this time with a track building contest with a twist.

The idea for this contest has its origins in the head of Alcator, who presented the idea at the TMU Blog. Basically, the rules of this contest are similar to any track building contest you might find out there and if you’ve played the MTC you’ll see plenty of resemblances – you build, the entered tracks are judged, winners are selected.

So what’s the twist? Well, each track must be no longer than 15 seconds! That’s damn short.

Also note that the TMU Blog carries some extra weight in this contest as the best tracks will be reviewed there (see “Judging” (point 3) and “Winners & Prizes” below).

The details:

o To enter a track, simply upload it to TMX and link to the track in this thread.
o You may enter max two tracks.
o No track may be longer than 15 seconds. Author times of 0:15.xx may be accepted, but 0:16.00 is too much.

It’s as simple as that. Due to the short length, however, it’s quite important that you feature something special in your track, something that makes it worth playing despite the short time you’ll spend driving. This is an aspect also considered when judging the tracks (see below) so make sure you don’t neglect it.


The contest is split onto four groups:

o Original – Desert, Rally & Alpine
o Sunrise – Island, Bay & Coast
o Nations – Stadium
o Overall – All

Each group is judged and treated individually, except for “Overall”, which is a combination of the other three. There will be a winner in each grooup as well as 2-4 runner-ups.


The judging process of the submitted tracks will happen a bit differently than in the average contest. The following applies to each separate group:

1. Scanning process – All tracks in each group are sorted through by me, Jozii, and the less good ones are removed immediately. The aim is to limit the number of tracks.

2. Actual judging – The tracks making it this far will go through a more detailed process where they’ll be judged on several main aspects, still in each group individually. These aspects include:

- Design (overall execution of the track)
- Originality (original and innovative features of the track)
- Entertainment (how fun the track is to play
- Look (scenery, MT, etc.)


The judging at this stage is done by Buchi, TimeBreaker and myself.

3. Reviewing – The three winning tracks are then to be reviewed at the TMU Blog, for a selection of the final overall winner.

The reviews are carried out in traditional TMU Blog fashion where they are rated (0-100%) on a number of sub-categories. They’ll also be given a Final Rating, which will determine their final standing compared to their opponents.

The order of which the tracks are reviewed is random, and there will never be more than one track reviewed/day. That way it will be interesting to see whether yet-to-be-reviewed tracks gain a higher rating than the previous reviewed tracks and excitement will thus be maintained until the very last review has been published.

Reviews are published at the TMU Blog, but final ratings are of course to be posted in this thread as well. The ratings in this stage are given by myself only.

Winners & Prizes:

o The top 3 to 5 tracks in each group receive 250 coppers each
o The winner of each group receives 750 additional coppers (1000 total)
o The winner of the entire contest receives 2000 additional coppers (3000 total)

In total up to 8250 coppers, sponsored by the TMU Blog, may be handed out.

Only thing left is to wish you good luck with your track building. Have fun
