It starts at 8pm? I hope I'll arrive asap
I missed the finals. Will the stream be posted on youtube?
stream didn't record on hitbox (something went wrong).
oh darn ):
are there any restrictions for joining advents cup?
No. Just set a local record. If you happen to be qualified (in /top100 the top 20) you just need to be there on sunday, 20:00 CET.
..and please set nicknames, guys! Would love to see who I am talking to
Why is my dirt track not in the map pack?
Probably because we liked other maps better :b
We had like 11 submissions in dirt, but only 5 in tech
epic video lol
The hype is strong, I'm in!
can I upload my dirt now that mappack is released or wait for dirt week?
how to get the xmas car?
@dmw: You can upload it now!
@IC43h: It is the first present. On top in the newsfeed you can find it!
the present Page not found!
We're working on it at the moment. It should be all on the frontpage and in a cleaner look soon(hopefully )
ops forgot complety on uploading
Hi. How could I contact an admin please ?
Admin here You can write us an email mxadventcalendar [at] gmail [dot] com or send us messages on MX (Ozon and haenry). Or simply use this chat here
PS: The dashboard was updated and is hopefully more clear. Like it?
Oh great Santa is here
It's just about prizes that I won
aah. We planned on sending the prizes after the adventcalendar is over, so that we can send it all together
Alright, so I can even get extrapoint
someone tell AR to play the advent cup
Who is AR? And why don't you do it yourself?
hi there =)
and thank you Santa for these gifts before X-mas
ho ho ho!
Evening everyone, hope your all having a great beginning to the festive month!
Is the speed final tomorrow?
ok cuz the topic about it says sunday 5/12 and I was kinda cofused hehe =P
the date for the cup is wrong, sunday is not the 5th
where did you see that? In the calendar it shows 6th for me.
oh just noticed that that's exactly what Guest776 wrote before
Well spotted. Fixed!
Mysterious Challenge has been announced for today! https://ac.ozontm.de/mysterious-challenges/
where is the xmas skin i cant find presents
It is present #1
what is the present for today ? *<l;D
presents break until tomorrow! =)
I ran out of present paper =D
wheres the last mappack btw?
will come as soon we have a 2min FS map
there is a 4-5 min rpg, eh?
which is it?
die drity mapüs haben cuts finde das unfair für die schlechten fahren da sie net so gut fahren und die cuts net fahren können
@guest1028, the mappack will come out very soon. Inside it it will be
santa fast alle maps sind cut bar haben jetzt 4 maps mit cut gefunden
join the server in 30 mins and show me then =)
nö wir haben keine l**t mehr da zu fahren da wir benachteiligt sind wegen den cuts
solang ich nicht weiß, wo cuts sind, kann ich dir auch nicht helfen.
Sorry guys, I don't think that there's a single cut on maps
Yeah, we just now confirmed it by looking at Bosswanted's replays. He is really that good!
so no cuts? I'm relieved but d**n those time on my track are sick!!!
yeah, some people blamed their low practice on cuts
Anyone else have the issue of TM defaulting map type to Puzzle now? I can't make tracks anymore because of it as there is no race script to change it to
Create an empty file called "Race.script.txt" in the same folder
Still no FS map?
yes, mappack will be out today, 23:59 CET!
All right then
anyone online ingame? I'm pretty bored and out of inspiration for building maps
in ts, yeah always!
when playing on the advent cup server I disable the local records but when rejoining the panel always comes back, it's really annoying
Are you allowed to take different routes on Mountaintop Retreat?
@firestorrm: yeah you are.
So, how to get prize ?
Alright, how and when should we get admin contact ?
wrote you a ingame message on mp
Why am I not displayed on the result page?
I am also not shown anymore on the resultpage (shorty)
Thanks and Happy New Year!
For anyone wondering: Results will be out soon and prizes will be delivered the next days.
Please set a nickname before you leave a message. If the chat doesn’t work anymore, clear your cookies and refresh the site.
What are the prizes?
As we have a nice leaderboard for adventcalendar points, we also have really neat prizes!
The points are adjusted so that actually everyone has a chance to win here.
1st place: One Maniaplanet key / 1 Trackmania Turbo T-Shirt + a sticker (maniaplanet one) or a Turbo poster + Keyring (Europe only)
2nd and 3rd place: One Maniaplanet key or Trackmania Turbo T-shirt + one pin’s + one sticker
4th and 5th place: One Maniaplanet key or Trackmania Turbo T-shirt + one pin’s

You also have the chance to win a Trackmania T-Shirt in the Stadium Adventcup every week!
Also, we have planets to give away! Lots of them! That’s why there will be random planet giveaways in the one or other event!
If you have questions about anything, you can use the livechat on our homepage. For everything else and more personal, send us an e-mail.
What is the Maniaexchange Adventcalendar?
The MX Adventcalendar is a project idea started by haenry and first put into practice in 2014. The whole idea is inspired by the old German TManiacs blog (Thank you!). The main goal behind the MX Adventcalendar is to bring the Trackmania & Shootmania community closer together before Christmas. To achieve this, we are organizing a lot of things that happen during the December days to build up a big virtual ( and at the same time so real ) adventcalendar. Also, to mock things up with some competition, because competition is always fun, there is a leaderboard in which you can win points by completing challenges, winning matches or being simply there. For the best 10 there will be prizes, but also for the rest, a random amount of leftover planets will be given.
2014 already had a lot of exciting things going: We had lots of presents, challenges, riddles and events, where we played the game together and had the opportunity to spend the days online in a friendly and warm atmosphere. You can have a look at the postcards we made in 2014, to get a look at what might expect you, here.
The 2015 edition is supposed to be a milestone regarding the organisation. We have learned a lot from the 2014 edition. Last year, we have organised everything by ourselves. That put a huge workload on our team. Furthermore we started very late in the middle of November, which increased the workload even more. This year, we have a lot of time, motivation and resources.
How can I participate?
Check out the official Calendar for the dates, just as looking at the homepage. For specific cups you need to register yourself / your team by clicking the ‘Register’ Link (so far only the paragon chase cups). On all the other events you just need to be there on time! Participation in contests is for everyone aswell, as long you submit your entry in time before the deadline! That’s it.
You can check your ladder and points amount in the leaderboard.
When can I win points and how many?
You can win points in three different categories:
We have planned to have the matches & cups only on weekends, that means Friday evening to Sunday evening. For participating and finishing you will win one point, but the better you are, the more points you will win. The amount of points you can win will be raised every week for specific events.
Big live events will have streams by people we are co-operating with. The competition page will include the dates and stream links.
Over the week there will be Time Attack challenges, in which you can hunt for the best times on our own server. Also, there are other challenges, like completing a puzzle map, solving a riddle, or finding
easter eggs presents on maps. Points will be given differently than on live events.
There will be some contests going during the weeks. In all of these you can win the biggest amount of points, but you’ll also need time to deliver a good product. The difference to the other categories is that we will not only give more points to the winners, but also more points for everyone else. If we think your creation deserves some extra points, you’re going to get them – e.g. the first place in a video contest gets the most points, but if the 2nd place is just barely less popular among the judges, it might get just as many points as the first one. A good 3rd place video in this context might get more too. For all of this there will be rules and guidelines about how to get the most points out of your submission.
For those, check out the contests/deadlines tab, to not miss any deadlines!
The time window of the adventcalendar is small, which means we will focus the points distribution slightly more on the amount of time you’ve been visibly putting into your project. Therefore a video contest gives you more points than a screenshot contest.
In general, the maximum points you can win will be shown on the contests/deadlines and competitions page.
