Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), June 2019, 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: Simple editor
Build a race map using simple track editor.

Deadline: June 30, 2019.

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:
Build a race map using simple track editor.
The author time cannot exceed 3 minutes.
Blockmixing is allowed.
PX tracks are not allowed.
Only race 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 exchange between (and including) June 1st and 30th, 2019.
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.
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.
Polishing – Scenery, 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!

That's a funny theme, count me in
It actually made me look at the simple editor for the first time ever, and well it's... simple

So, really simple editor only, no loading in the advanced one even to edit custom thumbnail or medal times?

Btw I would have not allowed blockmixing, it would be more coherent with this theme

Have 2 questions :
- when we create a new simple track, there is already scenery build on the map, is it ok ? or we have to delete it?
- can we edit the map in the advanced editor but using only blocks that simple editor gave us ? because simple editor is crappp

1. You can remove it or keep it, as long as you do that in simple editor.
2. No (ok, you can, as long as you don't use any features that advanced editor has but simple editor doesn't).

About the automatic scenery:

This implies loading the track in advanced editor for "heavy" modification, I find it a bit weird to allow this tbh.
It would also then be harder to police if the automatic terraforming/scenery has just been (partially) deleted, or if the builder has also added bits that are more convenient for him (which is impossible in simple mode)

If we can't even load in advanced to edit medals or thumbnails (which have no impact on the actual racing experience), I would suggest to also forbid the advanced editor for terraforming.

But I'm just saying, I don't really mind
On my side I will just stick 100% to the simple editor and that's it

I'm sorry, I thought that it's possible to remove the pre-made scenery in simple editor.
In this case, removing the pre-made scenery is not allowed since now.
