Please bear in mind that you can NOT take part in your own TTC edition.

For Tech, Dirt, FullSpeed, … editions: send one TTC sample map to TM Masters via private message on Facebook.

    3. Mood: Day
    4. Respawning must NOT lose more than 8 seconds
    5. Use the newest TTC-signpack – Remember: the signs are supposed to help to find the way but should not be neccessary, your maps should also be finishable without the signs

    7. Use the following style for the mapname (sample): TTC #xx – Dino #1 , TTC #xx – Dino #2 etc. If you did maps for a second time, add a ² or ³. Dino²/³. We will inform you about the edition number.
