MTC December 2020 - Christmas Wishlist 02 December 2020 22:52:32  


Banner by   Keissla.wp


Welcome to the sixth Monthly Track Contest (MTC) in the new Trackmania!
Once a month, Trackmania Exchange organizes a mapping competition for the community that requires every participant to build a map following a changing theme. Participating is easy: Check out the theme for this month, build a map, and upload it to the official MTC mappack on this site!

All tracks will be rated by our official MTC judges and a winner is determined.



Theme of the Month: Christmas Wishlist



Theme Information

It is December and we at TMX are feeling generous. We have prepared a wishlist for this month's MTC with different requirements that your track has to fulfill. You can freely pick which requirements you want to make up your personal theme this month - as long as you reach at least 20 christmas points. If you want to include more requirements, feel free to do so, it will give you the extra points.

Here are the possible requirements:
1: Use a multilap start for the route to start and finish in - 5 points
2: Use two reactor boosters - 3 points
3: Include no engine parts that are all together at least ten seconds long - 5 points
4: Include two speedslides - 2 points
5: Include three alternative finishes of similar length into your map - 3 points
6: Involve two backwards parts of at least 4 seconds each - 5 points
7: Have two dirt turns in your map - 2 points
8: Drive on three blocks from folder 9 - 3 points
9: Include two no-steering sections in your map - 3 points
10: Add four differing loops to your map - 5 points
11: Use blocks from only two main folders of the editor - 5 points
12: Use 8 different CPs - 4 points
13: Add three jumps or drops that are longer than two blocks (either horizontally or vertically) - 3 points
14: Add a reuse - 2 points
15: Use five custom blocks to drive on from Item Exchange - 3 points

So all you have to do is to build a map that fulfills some (or all, if you are crazy) of the requirements above. You can decide which requirements you want to fulfill. Just make sure that the points for each requirement reach 20 points.

Example:
If you pick requirements 2, 7, 8, 13, and 14 in your map, that is 3 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 13 points, which is not enough.
If you pick requirements 1, 6, 8, 9 and 12 in your map, that is 5 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 4 = 20 points, which is enough.

If you have questions regarding the requirements, ask them here in the forum thread or visit us on Discord!

  • You may submit one track maximum
  • Duo tracks are allowed, but each map counts as one track for each author involved
  • MTC should be present in the track name. Example: "I eat cellery because I don't deserve joy in life (mtc)" or "MTC - I stabbed people long before Among Us" (check that any special characters do not break in the TM or MX track name)

  • Blockmixing is allowed
  • Offgrid Mapping is allowed
  • Embedded items are allowed

    ... says:

    Can you explain in detail what does count as a differing loop? Is a different direction enough? Is it enough if the loop is one block longer?

    The way you combine the blocks that you use has to be different. To simply fulfill the requirement, you could just build two types of loops that you mirror. But I would assume that the jury sees that as rather boring ;) so the best way to go would be four loops that are clearly different from each other

    The items from #15 dont count to the folderthing from #11, right?

    For the requirements involving a number of some feature, are those an "at least this amount of [feature]" or "exactly this amount of [feature]"?

    Haven't seen this on the frontpage so I thought it maybe doesn't happen this month :o The theme seems very cool this time and i think I've gotten a little better at mapping since i started, so I hope I can build a better map this time:d
