Welcome to the MTC (Monthly Track Contest) for January 2022!
The MTC is a track building contest hosted by TrackmaniaExchange which challenges you to build a map to a specific theme.
There are no prerequisites or qualification requirements to enter, just continue reading the theme below, hop into your editor, and submit a track before the deadline!

A new year, new things. As some may have notice i recently put out the complete custom set of narrow road i'm working on since more than one year. 855 blocks to express yourself. And some may have done the short cut for the date and the MTC :)

:build: Theme: Custom Palette
- Build a track using custom items from the "Narrow Road" set.
- You cannot "edit" the custom blocks, for fairness between every participant (like changing the textures for example). Its only allowed to "edit a custom" to add a checkpoint or change a trigger nothing more.
- Default blocks/items may also be used.
- No other custom blocks/items from outside the set may be used in the layout of the track. (Decoration items are autorized for scenery)

Don't feel obligated to use only customs in your map you can mix between vanilla and customs easily (using the CH-Transitions file that contains nearly all transitions)

(brb) Deadline: Entries must be submitted to the MTC mappack before the 30/01.
- Following the deadline, the Host will close the mappack for submissions. At that point, all maps in the mappack are considered valid entries.

:award: Prize
- Honor and right to brag!
- The winning track will be featured on the TrackmaniaExchange front page!

:wait: Rules
- One entry is allowed per user. Multi-author maps count as the single entry for all authors involved.
- “MTC” must be present in the track name as it appears on TMX.
- All entries must be built using the latest version of the game.
- All entries must be built specifically for this MTC.
- Press Forward, Left, Right, or similar tracks are not allowed.
- Royal tracks are not allowed.

:done: Judging System
All entries will be graded by a panel of judges who will be studying each map based on the following criteria:

Theme (20 pts): How well does the track fit the theme? How creatively did you implement the theme’s requirements?
Design/Route (10 pts): Flow, smoothness, layout, speed, surface diversity, transitions, difficulty. The “Feel” of the track.
Details/Polish (10 pts): Signage, Scenery, MediaTracker. Does the track feel like it has the finishing touches?
Fun Factor (10 pts): Is the track fun to the judge? Some extra points can be given here.

As the author of the set of customs, I will be available for any questions concerning blocks locations, beugs or anything else in this thread or in the discord one.

Good luck! Please ask any questions in this thread, otherwise get to building!

Added rule 05/01/2022: - You cannot "edit" the custom blocks, for fairness between every participant (like changing the textures for example). Its only allowed to "edit a custom" to add a checkpoint or change a trigger nothing more.

I am starting to really like the custom blocks! But in the 800+ blocks there there are, I can't find a block the connects the cave roads to the regular narrow roads :(. If there is actually a block that does that, please let me know if I'm missing out on it.

There is not a direct transition sadly for this;

What you can do is to use one of the block in: "CHP-transitions" and then "CHOC transitions"

You got to use one transition from this file to go to a CHC block and then use one block from "CHP-Transitions" and then "CHC to CH"

Or do the same thing using a "tunnel" block instead transition to link it

can we slightly modify item from the set like this:

Change inclinason of CP so it fit with incline road.


Make block 1 block longer/ shorter to smoother the run.

Connection with different blocks are adjustable by this 1 grid offset, but this one is not.
