Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), August 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: Long!
Build a race track which is at least 3 minutes long.

Deadline: August 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 which is at least 3 minutes long.
Multilap tracks are not allowed.
RPG and Trial style tracks are not allowed
All checkpoints must be respawnable.
The author time must 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!

hey, if the map is already on tmx - is changing the name on tmx enough? (adding mtc), or it has to be done in game and uploaded again?

I think it needs to have been uploaded in this month. I can't find in the rules where it says that explicitly, though.

Building a track with a three minute AT shouldn't be a problem after a two year break. A crash here, a respawn there, ...

Is it okay if I can finish my map in ~ 2:55 but for normal people it would take well over 3 minutes? Wouldn't want to drive my AT slow but can't extend my map either
