Welcome to the TMX Monthly Track Contest (MTC), April 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: Base Plus 200
Your track's weight should be at most 200 coppers more than the empty base's weight.

Deadline: April 15th, 2020.

Prizes:
The 2 winners will be able to pick a track to showcase on the front page*

*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:
Your track's weight should be at most 200 coppers more than the empty base's weight.
The 'empty base' is either a starting field in case of TMO environments & Stadium or a 10x10 field of grass in the middle in case of TMS environments.
So, the copper limits are:
Desert: 135cc + 200cc = 335cc
Rally: 209cc + 200cc = 409cc
Snow: 137cc + 200cc = 337cc
Island: 260cc + 200cc = 460cc
Coast: 358cc + 200cc = 558cc
Bay: 334cc + 200cc = 534cc
Stadium: 290cc + 200cc = 490cc
The copper counts need to be calculated as they were on PC3. Lowering your quality settings to PC0 to make the count lower is not allowed. (As is artifically lowering the count by adding extra blocks that lower it or hexediting. This especially is considered cheating.)
Don't add a password so I can recalculate the copper count to check its validity.
PX tracks are not allowed.
TMUnlimiter requirement is not allowed.
You may submit up to three tracks.
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.

Due to coronavirus, please remember to keep a reasonable distance between cars in MediaTracker. Thank you!
Remember that you have got about two 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 24th 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!

It's PF, PB, PL, PR, PFL, PFR... any 'Press [button]' track. You shouldn't be able to complete a track pressing only a combination of buttons throughout the entire track.

or a 10x10 field of grass in the middle in case of TMS environments.

Bay: 334cc + 200cc = 534cc


One question please: if we chose a TMS envi as bay; Do we have to build a 10 x 10 field in the middle of the map, or can we "spread" the field as desired?

you don't have to build anything, the rule was there so you could have some extra coppers to spend on blocks since building ground eats some too ^^

shadow/shader (which one? ) quality, a setting you can choose in your game's settings and unfortunately affects copper count on tracks (it's like 20-50 cc of difference on a standard map)
