Well, hello everybody Welcome to the Monthly Track Contest
In the MTC your task is to build a track on a given theme (see below)




The MTC:

This Month's Theme: Looking down - the track should have a custom camera looking straight down, from above
you have to build a sort of "micro-machines video-game" type of camera, pointing directly downwards onto the player




The Prizes:

The Winner gets a showcase track of his choosing, on the TMX Front page.




The Rules:

- build the in-game MT in such a way that the player can only see the track from above, looking straight down
- you are allowed to make a maximum of 2 small parts with another type of camera
- the track should not be longer than 1 min (AT)
- ANY kind of block-mixing is NOT allowed
(here are included every kind of outside/inside the editor additional programs
as well as editor bugs - such as ctrl+click functions and block-bugs)


suggestions:
- you can attach the camera to the player, or leave it in a fixed point somewhere above,
but it should only be pointed downwards ...
- you can make a maximum of 2 other type of cameras,
but only for a very short time,
this is in case you'd like to include a loop or a wall ride, or even fun diverse parts in your track
(these additional parts should not exceed 4-5 seconds each)
- the theme dictates how the track should be built, but the playability of the track is also important
make sure the track is fun and enjoyable, easy to play and even has respawnable MT
- be creative with the theme (basically the MT) because it will count high in the judging




The Deadline:

This MTC's deadline is Tuesday, the 15th of May, 2012




Additional Rules:

- The tracks should be build for this month's contest,
any already existing tracks (released or in the beta area) are not allowed
- You may submit only 1 track, and make only 1 post in this topic
put a FULL size link of the released track that you're submitting in this contest
- Make sure the track can be finished/played by everyone
take care of speed issues, respawn issues, online/offline issues, and so on
- Name your tracks: "(MTC) TrackName"
the "TrackName" is whatever you want (ex: "MTC - The Dome" )
the track name must have the "MTC" tag in the TMX name
- The tracks must be uploaded to the exchange
between (and including) 1st and 15th of May 2012.





IMPORTANT:

in case some problems occur, pls allow a day or two for clarifications
so don't just jump at it, and start building senseless, wait a few moments





okay, that's it, talk to you guys in the comment section down bellow good luck

@ fabio_m
write me in PM what you want to tell me I didn't quite understand,
but I have all the track from all the MTCs I ever hosted, so we'll talk in PM

@ trunks_11
mod is allowed of course, but I forgot to write about inappropriate signs
but I hope that's already understood, it should go without saying ^^
anything custom (textures, sounds) you might use, be careful about it

E: I mean bird eye camera of course

yep you can be creative with the cameras ...
as long as the camera is pointing downwards onto the track, it will be considered the main camera of the track
any other camera that doesn't point downwards will be considered as the additional parts allowed (2 maximum)

you have to think this a bit different ...
don't try to suit the theme to a perfect track ...
it doesn't work that way ^^
but the other way around ...
build the track for this theme ...
if you're imagining an already existing tech track
that's not gonna work with such a camera, obviously
so that's not the approach here ^^
be creative, and get the best out of the theme

Why do you have to build a tech? Appropriate fullspeeder is hard too, just be more open concerning the styles
