Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), July 2018, hosted by   rad!

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: There And Back Again
Build a track where you change the drivingline at a certain point, forcing the driver to drive the whole map in the opposite direction.

Deadline: July 31, 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 track where you change the drivingline at a certain point, forcing the driver to drive the whole map in the opposite direction.
Nearly 100% of a track has to be re-used, which means that the car has to pass through the same spot twice.
All spots/checkpoints must be respawnable.
The author time cannot exceed 2 minutes.
Blockmixing is allowed.
TM Unlimiter requirement is not allowed.
PX tracks are not allowed.
Only race and stunt maps are allowed.
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 united exchange between (and including) July 6th and 31st, 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 theme.
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.

Good luck and have fun.

We hope many people participate!

Ahh this will be a cut fest, but interesting theme. Anyone down for a challenge by choosing rally?

Since we sadly had too few entries this month, we have decided to not go on with judging and instead give all our entrants one showcase each!


Please send me a private message with one map you would like to showcase. Remember, it can be any map on tmx as long as it has less than 10 awards.

I'm sure we'll have plenty more entries for August.

Oh... I was nearly finished with judging.

There were very few tracks indeed, though, so I understand. A little shout out to   Sivert, who would've gotten my top marks.
