Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), September 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: Connect the blocks
Using one of the bases provided, make a map that connects the preexisting blocks. The two environments to pick from are rally and bay.

Deadline: September 29th, 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:
Using the bases provided, make a map that connects the preexisting blocks. You cannot delete the blocks or change their orientation.
You only have the use one of the provided finishes. Simply delete the others (or even use some as fake finishes) once your route is finished.
Add as much terraforming as you'd like. Deleting terraforming underneath a preexisting block is not allowed.
All 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.
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) September 4th 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.
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!

Download one of the bases and don't delete any blocs. Make a map that connects all the blocs together.

Hey everyone, here's an update.

Unfortunately, due to real-life conflicts, both Sammon and Enryx have stepped down as judges, which means the judging sheets responsibility has been passed down to me. I am currently looking for at least two judges to judge both this MTC and the September MTC.


Still just me here.

I could judge the one for September but because I participated in the one for August, it would make me invalid to judge that one.
