Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), July 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: Up!
Build a race track with at least 3 checkpoints where each checkpoint is placed at least one level above the previous checkpoint. The start block has to be placed at least one block below the first checkpoint and the finishline at least one block above the last one.

Deadline: July 31st, 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 track with at least 3 checkpoints where each checkpoint is placed at least one block above the previous checkpoint.
The start block has to be placed at least one block below the first checkpoint and the finishline at least one block above the last one.
Multilap tracks are 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.

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 your map feels like a "normal" racemap. For example, no unnecessarily tight curves on the edge of the building area.
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!

Fake Finish at the start for GPS is ok, right?

Of course, fake finishes are absolutely ok, it's just that the finish that is actually being used to finish the track (the intended/fastest one) should be above the last cp.
And to clarify, the cps or the finish don't have to be directly above the previous one, they must be at least one level higher and that's the only condition. It might be even on the other side of the map.

Oh that's cool. I thought I had to put them on the same block, so I didn't really want to take part. I'll build something in that case.

Darn it, I built almost half the track assuming that they had to be directly on top of the previous one . This theme is much less difficult than I thought...

in fact, yes! I have wasted 10 minutes of my life looking through the results of every single MTC since 2009 and I'm pretty sure that tuutti's track has the highest average score in the history of United MTC! the closest I could find is November 2k15 with 145/150
