MTC February 2024 - Across the Map in 80 Seconds  

Banner by   Keissla.wp

Welcome to the Monthly Track Contest (MTC) for February 2024!
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!

Last month we had a pretty restrictive theme, so I wanted something that could accommodate practically any style. That's why this month's theme is pretty simple; you just need to cover a lot of distance.

:build: Theme: Across the Map in 80 Seconds
  • The route must pass through two opposite ends of the map editor (e.g. the northernmost row and the southernmost row)
  • There's not actually a time limit or requirement, the title's just a fun reference.

: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: "circumnavigate | mtc" or "(MTC) Across the Way"
  • 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 March 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 for about a week that anyone can play the MTC maps on
  • Anyone can vote by using the server's karma system
  • More details on this will be provided in this thread once voting opens

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

Just a quick reminder that today's your last day to submit maps!

Submissions are now closed! You've still got 24 hours to update your map, if you have any last minute edits to make. Voting should start within the week, too.

Voting is Open!  
We got a lot of maps this month; you love to see it! This month, there's 9 maps spanning the stadium.

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 WILL be counted (feel free to give it a ++ !)
  • 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 one 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!

Our winner is Matuu2! :gold:

Djinxu takes second! :silver:

The bronze medal goes to BlackPrince__! :bronze:

It feels like it's been a while since we've had no ties. None of the maps this month, including those outside the podium, tied with another map! I don't think it's a coincidence that we've also had a lot of voters this time around, with 6. Thanks to you all!

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!

For the first time in forever, I've managed to not procrastinate long enough for another MTC to already be in the voting period! Huzzah! Of course, if you're looking for more MTC action, the March MTC still has a little over a week left to go. If you're fast, it's enough time to get a map out!

Thanks again, and see you next time!
