Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), January 2020!

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: Checkpoint Party
Build a track with 20 or more checkpoints.

Deadline: January 26th, 2020.

Prizes:
The winner will be able to pick a track to showcase on the front page* + 3000 coppers
1000 coppers
500 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 20 checkpoints.
The author time shouldn't exceed 90 seconds (1 minute 30 seconds).
All checkpoints must be respawnable.
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. Stacking more than 2-3 checkpoints next to each other will likely lose you points.
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!


If you want to make a donation towards future prize pools, please send coppers to the login: radpl
If you want to judge, please send a PM to   nod32»UD; I might try a public voting system if there's not enough people willing to judge tracks.

Fun fact: This is the first MTC hosted in January since 2015. I think that's kinda neat.
