Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), March 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: 15 Times The Width
Build a track where the route's length is 15 times its width.

Deadline: March 29th, 2020.

Prizes:
The winner will be able to pick a track to showcase on the front page* + 2000 coppers
Two randomly selected authors will receive 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 which is a 1x15, 2x30, 3x45, ..., 10x150 track.
The route has to reach all the boundaries of the area you've chosen (put in a more complex way, the route, if enclosed by a 1x15, 2x30, 3x45, ..., 10x150 box, has to reach the walls of that box).
Scenery can be put outside the boundaries.
The author time shouldn't exceed 180 seconds (3 minutes).
Blockmixing is allowed.
TM Unlimiter requirement is allowed, but you can't go above 10x150. Consider using a 10x150 base (which can be applied to all environments and work in vanilla if the background is from a TMO environment).
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.

Try to avoid having to use Unlimiter to open a track. There are ways to do an oversized track without having to open it in Unlimiter (described above) and there are ways to hide the unfitting background (try Triangles 3D), so use them!
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.
Important: To enter a track, simply upload it and post your submission in this thread.

If you want to judge:
copy the list that will be posted after the deadline passes
write your scores (single score from 0 to 10) next to the track names with an explanation. The explanation is required and needs to be constructive. If you submitted a track to this MTC, you can still judge, but you can't vote on your own track
you have to vote at least an 8 (at least) once and at most a 4 (at least) once
send me your scores (on TMX:   nod32»UD)
odd or otherwise suspicious judging (like voting every track a 10 and one a 0) will not be counted

The voting will end on Sunday, April 5th if I get at least 4 votes by that date; if not, the judging will end 24 hours after I receive the 4th vote (I'll keep the status updated).

Good luck and have fun.

We hope many people participate!

If a block goes outside the limits but you only drive on the part that does not, is that ok?

Should be alright (otherwise making 1x15 or 2x30 would be way too hard).

You need to hit every corner of the build area with the race line right?

Just the walls are enough. I can get some screenshots if that's unclear.

Respawn routes can go outside, just like the scenery.

funny how a theme which is way harder than the last alrdy has 2 entrys after like 1,5 weeks.

imo the tutorial map theme was way easier, i cant seem to find a beginning for this theme, im struggleing what resolution i wanna go, i started a 6x90 thing, but turns out its way out of my level to finish such a project.

i also tried the "go completely crazy in heights" thing but it turned out way to hard for an MTC, so im kinda stuck here, sadness :/

seems like this cool theme has to go without my stadium skills, sry guys

Please judge tracks based on their design, theme implementation and fun factor. You can give a higher score to tracks that have impressed you in some way. Don't give scores for elements unrelated to the track itself, such as track screenshot or author comments.

The voting will end on Sunday, April 5th if I get at least 4 votes by that date; if not, the judging will end 24 hours after I receive the 4th vote (I'll keep the status updated).
