Welcome to the Monthly Track Contest

First and foremost, happy new year guys
Magik asked me to host the mtc and I'm glad to be back for it and I hope I give you a challenging and interesting theme

Crossing the garden
In this month's theme you have to build a map where the players crosses through a 2x2 empty patch of grass or dirt 3 times. The concept should be pretty simple and maybe even a little challenging.

- The player must cross the same 2x2 offroad patch of grass/dirt at least 3 times.
- The player must go fully offroad on the re-usabale part
- Maximum lenght of the track is 1m 10 secs

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

-Topic rule: Make only 1 post for your released entry, using a FULL sized link
-Track rule: Name your track "(MTC) TrackName" (for ex: "MTC - Crossing my garden")
-(the track names MUST include the tag "MTC" here on TMX)
-Competition rule: Already existing tracks (released or in the beta area) are not allowed
-Do NOT edit your entry track AFTER the deadline has been announced
(any violation of the 'competition rules' can disqualify your track from the contest)

-Creativity - 10 Points possible
we judge: the creativity, the route, the concept, the overall track ...
-Fun - 10 Points possible
we judge : the hunting potential, the player-friendly factor, the challenges, the smoothness ...
-Overall Looks - 10 Points possible
we judge : the overall scenery design, the visual moments, the Intro / In-game / Outro MT ...

The track submission deadline is Sunday, the 20th of January
(You have to submit your entries between and including the 1st and the 20th of this month)

The Winner gets a showcase track of his/her choosing, on the Frontpage
and, of course, the pride and respect you get within the community for winning a MTC

Please allow a day or two for clarifications in case of rules / theme adjustments
Don't start building senseless wait a few moments and keep an eye on this topic

/!\ I am looking for some keen judges as I need some help, therefore:
If you want to volunteer as a judge, send me a PM @   fab'm PT <3 /!\

if yes - is the blue way allowed ? is the pink way allowed ?

all allowed since you go through the patch of grass, if I forgot to mention, you have to go in full contact with the ground when you do the reuse
in case you ask if the track goes first through blue and its re-use is the pink path then it's also allowed

Ok think i try on smth. - do i get deduction points for not placing a gps? my Intention is to go for a maze map - so it makes not really sense by placing gps or what

I won't expect any deduction for having no gps, but on all maps except the route is really shit to find

No you don't get points deducted and if you want, hmu when you're gonna upload (hopefully not tomorrow because I won't have internet access ) and I'll disable replay downloads for 30 days

e/ or if you are releasing tomorrow, PM the mod team and they'll do it for you

You put a normal CP before the 2x2 block, and 3 ring CPs after. The intended route is go through the first ring, respawn, go through the second ring, respawn, go through the third ring.

Also, I guess on multilaps you must cross 2x2 block 3 time each lap. Or is multilap forbidden?

multilap is allowed as long you do the three-re-use in each lap
about the respawn idea I guess it counts as a re-use but try to make something better and imaginative since 3 respawns will kill the flow of the track
to better explain: it's allowed but not very creative

3 respawns may be very creative and flowy if done well though

Yeah indeed wormi, with a bit of imagination it could make for a very interesting, unorthondox track.

I have some questions:
1. Does the purple ground texture qualify as 'offroad'?
2. Are you allowed to place blocks on the 2x2 region?
(this might be a grey area, as the bordered blue blocks also create a texture on the ground, or the ones that create a purple texture)
3. If 2 is yes, would the blue ground from the bordered blue blocks count as offroad?

Just a few questions I had while this theme was buzzing around
