This question may have already been asked I tried to search to see if anyone had already asked but couldn't find it. My question is, when you upload an entry for build it, is it supposed to be just the track or the entire park? If I only upload the track how will the judges see the CS and everything else? I was under the impression uploading just the track would only show the coaster layout.

You can upload the track file, or you can upload the entire park. It doesn't matter during the voting phase which file you upload because nobody will be able to download it until the round ends, so it will have no effect whatsoever on the voting. People will only be able to see what's in the screenshots you take (and in the POV should you choose to upload one, but that's optional), so make sure that the screenshots (as well as the POV) depict the coaster and its environment well enough for voters to see what they're voting for.

The file type only matters after the round ends and the file becomes downloadable, depending primarily on what you want other players to see when they download it. Uploading the park file will give players firsthand access to the entire park. Uploading the track file will only allow them firsthand access to the track, but they will still be able to see the environment in the screenshots you've provided.

Either way is acceptable, and rounds have been won both ways.

The short answer is: File type does not matter in Build It
