MTC August 2023 - Super Effective  

Banner by   Keissla.wp

Welcome to the Monthly Track Contest (MTC) for August 2023!
The MTC is a track building contest hosted by TrackmaniaExchange which challenges you to build a map with a specific theme. Later, all the tracks are rated and a winner is found.
There are no prerequisites or qualification requirements to enter; just read the theme below, hop in your editor, and submit a track before the deadline!

Trackmania has accrued a lot of blocks that affect the car in fun ways. Choose one and show us what you can do with it for this month's theme:

:build: Theme: Super Effective
  • Pick one gameplay effect (turbo, fragile, or no steering as examples) and make a map centered around it!
  • Feel free to choose an effect that needs custom items (magnets, bumpers, etc.)
  • Using more than one effect is allowed, but the map's main effect should be obvious

:wait: General 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. Example: "Cruisin' (MTC)" or "mtc - blown engine!"
  • All entries must be built using the latest version of the game
  • All entries must be built specifically for this MTC
  • Blockmixing, Offgrid mapping, and Embedded Items are allowed
  • Texture mods are allowed
  • Royal tracks are not allowed

If you have any questions or would like to contest a rule, feel free to ask!

(brb) Submitting and Deadline
  • Submit your course to the MTC mappack before the deadline below
  • Submissions may be freely updated within the submission period
  • The earliest deadline for submissions is the end of September 3rd. Submissions will continue to be accepted until I officially announce closure in this thread, which will likely occur the following EST morning
  • Everyone will have 24 hours after submissions close to make any last minute edits to their submissions
  • After this, you may not make any more updates until after the results are published

:award: Prizes
  • Honour and the right to brag! (Jozii used to say that. I wasn't around then, but maybe some of you still remember him? :p)
  • The winning track will be featured on the TrackmaniaExchange front page!

:done: Judging
  • For judging, we will be using a public voting system
  • A server will be opened that anyone can play the MTC maps on
  • We will use the online karma system for voting
  • More details on this will be provided in this thread as we get closer to the voting period

Good luck! If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread or in Discord! Now then, get to building!

Just a reminder that today is the last day to submit maps! Tomorrow, I'll be making a post that officially closes submissions. About a day after that, public voting should open.

Voting is now closed! All participants have 24 hours from this post to make any last minute edits to their maps. I plan to get public voting started sometime tomorrow.

Voting is Open!  
With the build period finished, it's time for another week of voting! If you want to help figure out which of the three maps this month was the best, now's the time!

Here's how to vote:
  • Go to the "MTC" room found in the TM Exchange club
  • When you're on a map, send one of these vote messages into chat to vote:
    • -- = 1 point (bad)
    • - = 2 points
    • +- = 3 points
    • + = 4 points
    • ++ = 5 points (good)
  • If you need to change your vote on a map, just send your new vote in chat. Only the most recent vote on each map is recorded
  • The map with the highest average rating wins!
  • Everyone can vote! If you made a map, your vote on your own map won't be counted
  • You do NOT need to finish a map to vote on it, but please give it your best effort!
  • You must vote on at least half of the maps for your votes to count
  • If you liked a map, please leave it an award
  • If you have any feedback, please leave a comment on the map's page
  • The jukebox and voting are enabled, so feel free to request, extend, and skip maps
The voting period will last for at least 1 week, after which I will tally all the votes and our final results will be posted!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Otherwise, start driving and get voting!

We have a tie for first!

OG_Grif was first to submit, so they get to have gold first! :gold:

asyr.NJ earns an equally valuable gold medal of their own! :gold:

Rounding out our podium, pjw gets bronze! :bronze:

Congratulations to our winners!

Here's the link to the full results sheet.

Thanks to all the builders and voters who participated in the contest!

There's more MTC action going on right now, if you're hungry for more. On the building side, the September MTC is in full swing. Pick a letter and build a map that looks like it! If driving maps is more your style, check out the other September MTC, where public voting has just begun. Those maps are all about driving everywhere except for the blocks' primary surface!

Thanks again, and see you next time!
