Here is the "Happy Harvest" AC4400CW of the Acorn & Gourd Railway.
...my second try is a little tribute to steam locomotives surrounded by autumnal colors and a version on a sailing ship in the Caribbean. Very close to 300 layers, so I had to step on the brake with details. American locos are an ideal canvas framed by the beautiful landscape of Sand Patch Grade!
Designed my livery but when trying to load it in bakerloo, it crashes and exits the game to xbox dashboard
Usually happens the 1st time. Try again it should work
Never load a service just after using the livery editor it will automatically crash. Quit the game after every livery editor use and restart the game to enjoy your creation
Never happened to me.
Wow fantastic liveries already!
Same, though I usually go to scenario planner after LD, not services, to set the trains to my liking
Literally my second time using this tool, I don't think I did too bad considering. I had a look at the others and I'm not gunna win lol, good luck everyone else yours all.look amazing
I like your trees! Everyone starts somewhere!
This is my second attempt, I think this may be better than my first. Good luck to everyone, alot of amazing designs on here!
Isn't Christmas in winter? And isn't the ICE3 banned from this competition?
Indeed but it’s hard to read for some people
A variation on my previous one. This is the "Autumn Bounty".
Damn How all of you Gettin Leaves? I can’t find them in my Shapes
Ok I’m working on it. I’ll call I- I don’t know what to call it lol
you make them from multiple decals
1972 Stock from Bakerloo Line in special Autumn Livery.
How i can add the screenshots as a normal size on this forum?, not just a small icon of it that you have to open it to see the image. Thank you
You press this button
Can we make multiple versions of our train or just one per person? I have an idea no one has done yet but already submitted my design.
So I don't want to help the competition because I am really wanting some free stuff....but if you want to make a leaf here you all go.....now please don't beat me.

There were lots of amazing entries into this competition!! Can't wait to see who wins!!
Not me that's for sure. Here's to hoping they do this for all seasons, I already have some ideas for spring.....
Yeah me too. While I'm happy with what I did, there are quite a few here that just blew my mind! There are some really creative people out there!
Hey, has the winners been announced yet?
Not sure, however I do think if they do this in the future they should limit it to all the same type of locomotive. I didn't realize that we could do a passenger train with almost 8 sides to paint as opposed to a single locomotive with 2 sides. So hopefully they will put that into consideration since it does make a huge difference.
No hate to the passenger train crew though, the designs were amazing but it sure is a difference in the amount that one could create with the extra space presented.
Not to throw a spanner in the works but the first step in the competition guide does say this...
* Start the Livery Designer in Train Sim World 2 and choose a locomotive or wagon for your canvas.
So you would be forgiven for thinking that full multiple units were not allowed. It clearly states “choose a locomotive or wagon”. When I first read it, I also took it to mean a single vehicle, but then all the entries came in with long trains and nobody said anything. From this, I would say that the rules and guidelines need to be written more clearly as to what is required and/or allowed. Alternatively all those multiple units should be disqualified for not following the brief. Which option is least likely to cause uproar or get me lynched for pointing it out now?
Well in fairness the windows do eat up a massive amount of space, but I don't think they should disqualify anyone, that'd be really mean to have someone do all that effort and be told sorry but no. I'd be really mad if that was done to me.
Does anyone know when the winners are announced?
Sometime this week, possibly in a live stream. I don’t think anything has been announced as to exactly when though. I’ve not noticed anything.
Maybe in the tomorrow’s stream ?
they confirmed that yesterday
Maybe a post from DTG on this thread would have been a good idea.
still nothing new, right?!?
For the last time wait to the stream today
The winner will be announced on tonight's stream.
Congrats to winners! Super pretty works all around, now let's all get ready for winter designs!
This is such a fun way to make people explore livery designer and I love the idea of doing 2 prize pools, one for advanced users and one new artists like they talked about on the stream.
I'd probably split it also in a way of locos and EMUs/DMUs. Multiple units are hard to paint, but it's a huge canvas. And if TGV can be used in the future... that will be difficult to beat in skilled hands.
