Good evening TMNF community,

Maybe some of you remember the Shark Racing scrim we made last year in may. We had a lot of fun so why not doing it again? We, Shark Racing, proudly announce the second edition of the (maybe) biggest fullspeed tournament in TMNF this year and we invite you all! Join in and have some fun

Style: Fullspeed

When: 2nd June 8pm CEST until 18th June 10pm CEST

for whom: Teams, solo players and builders.

Ranking: Best single driver and best team and most loved map.

Registration: Single players don't need registration, everyone can join.

Teams need to register. Send us a list of your line up (login names and nicknames) before the tournaments starts (no joining or changes allowed while the tournament is running) Minimum --> 5 players. Please dont change your name and especially not your clantag during the tournament to make the evaluation easier.
Map builders send me their maps (via zippyshare link for example)

Evaluation: The driver with the best local rank will be the champion of the solo campaign.

Ranking for teams: There will be a point system. The fastest run on a map gets 25 points for the teams account. Second gets 24 points,third 23,... 25th gets one point. Only the best five drivers of a team will get their points counted for the score.

Example for one map:
1. Team A driver -->25 points
2. Team A driver -->24 points
3. Team A driver -->23 points
4. Team A driver -->22 points
5. Team A driver -->21 points
6. Team A driver --> no points (6th best driver of the team)
7. Team A driver -->no points (7th best driver of the team)
8. Team B driver --> 20 points
9. Team C driver --> 19 points
... until there are no more points to be given.
At the end the points on all maps will be count up and the team which earned the most points wins.

For builders: The map with the best track karma online wins.

The maps:

Of course we want to have new maps for such a tournament, so we ask you to make them for it!

You have time to send us your work until the 26th May, the earlier the better.
You are allowed to send in one map and a duo map with someone else, right now not more please.
The maps needs to be competitive, this means:
- try to avoid section which could cause annoying bugs
- dont build mega hard very lucky dependend parts (hunting factor)
- try to get a variation of many fullspeed characteristic elements (wallrides, tubes, loops, overturns, smooth transitions and jumps, street and platform sections,...)
- dont make a heavy scenery, there are still people with computers which are older than TMNF itself aprox. 5k-6k is already a lot.
- length: 46 secs +/-3
- please dont use a password on your maps!
- map has to have the tag $s$i$000SRHT $fff2 - before name ( SRHT 2 - 'trackname')

Last year some disliked the fact that all maps had esl character. So this year we dont have a special theme for the maps. You can build sd rollercoasters or street based maps with a lot of transitions. Just try to make your map diversified and huntable.
There is no limit of maps. If we get 5 maps and they are all great for hunting we will play them. If we get 15 maps we will have these 15 maps to hunt. A small group of Shark racing will test the maps in detail. If we think that you have made a good hunter your track is in.
You can make duo maps too, but please try to avoid using the beta area and dont show it others, so that every map will be a surprise.
You release the map on your own TMX account when the tournament has started.

Prices: For teams fame and glory, for the best player we add a handful of coppers (written in numbers: 5) and the builder of the most loved map gets a frontpage showcase on TMX (big thanks to   HardDance who makes this possible!)


Server: tmtp://#addfavourite=SRFullspeed
Time attack (20 min/round)
no juking, skip or replay votes for the first 3 days
no freezone, no password

As long as the "SRHT" is black and italic and the "2 -" is white and italic it is ok. After the - you can add what ever you want Personally I didnt care to much about the name nor a tag, but some asked for a uniformly tag so I choose this

What counts? Karma on the online server? Awards on tmx? Your judging sheet? First two options are very subjective (if two maps are theoretically equally good, the map by the famous mapper tends to get way more awards than the map by the player, who isn't known on tmx). I really hope you choose the 3rd option.

Oh damn, somehow this must got lost in the re-editing of the text. We favoured the karma rating, because it worked very good last year and it is way less work for me while doing the evaluation. Since I am a bit more buissy than usual for the next months this is the only solution. Furthermore I like the idea of a completely subjective rating system for maps, since the maps are made for pure hunting. Besides that everyone has the chance to participate in the judging. Anything aorund it, like the presentation (mt works) and scenery are things that are of minor importance for most people who will drive the maps.

I received the first map by   One. thank you very much Thats why I want to mention a thing.
If you builders dont like the evaluation with the karma, you can present a better form to me here and we talk about it in this thread. And also like last year, we are very happy about any suggestions what we might can do better and we appreciate it a lot if you want to help us to make it an even more enjoyable tournament

Another thing that I maybe wrote a bit stupid. You dont need to put the tag or the trackname in these [] brackets, I only used them to highlight the tag so that nobody overlooks it^^ I changed it in the text above

Change the map's name to Map 1 / Map 2 /... so you don't know who built it. Map testers use a voting sheet from 0-10. Just copy ESL.

I need to take a closer look into the esl system when I find some time. More opinions are appreciated


some additions: You are allowed to send in one map and a duo map with someone else, right now not more please.

we already received 5 maps with different characteristics and great diversity. So good news, it is already clear that tubes arent the dominant element of the scrim like last year

Hi, I have a question or two:
1. I am confused with this tag system - what does these $s$$000fff....mean?.....Can it be only SRHT 2 - track name ?
2. I didn't see to whom I have to send the track.
3. I agree what fredair.esu said: 'Change the map's name to Map 1 / Map 2 /' - in this way, everyone has the chance.

$s gives the text shadows $i makes the letters italic and $000 makes it black. So everything after these codes will be black, italic and have shadows until another code changes the characteristics of the text. In this case it is $fff, what makes the folowing letters white. So just copy the this $s$i$000SRHT $fff2 - and add the name of your map.

We are still undecided about the evaluation system.

Upload your map on some filesharing service like dropbox, zippyshare, googledrive, uploadfiles io,... and send me the downloadlink here on tmx. Of course not in the forum but as a private message. We will test the maps intesively and tell you about the slightest complains we have, so that you dont need a beta area. You will get a very detailed feedback, except if we think that your map works nearly perfect.

Up to now we have received maps from
Mat
Severus
One
Drover
and Elaus

If you think that the typical elaus map wont fit in you dont have to worry. We are working together and we will make a map that (hopefully) everybody will like
