    Hey everyone!

    Here’s an up to date version of the screenshot contest rules.

    Every new contest thread will have a poll offering ten themes that you can vote for. The theme with the most votes will become next week's screenshot contest theme!

    All themes will be randomised so they won't be following the specific list below. If a theme appears in the poll twice, one of the entries will be replaced.

    When a theme is chosen, it gets eliminated from the list and won't be featured in the poll anymore. This is why some of the most common themes, such as Freestyle or country-specific themes are repeated to make sure they are featured multiple times.

    For Train Sim World themes, whenever the new piece of content lands we are likely to use the name of the content for the theme, as an example if East Coastway launched next week, it would become the next week's theme as well.

    The list of themes might change throughout the year to accommodate new releases and any changes that might occur with the game.

    Below is a list of 60 themes, but please feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below, the more the merrier:

    Great list to start with, hard to find something that is missing!
    How about:
    -Diesel
    -Electric
    -Headlights
    -Loading/unloading (could work with freight and passengers?)
    -Distant (in contrast to up-close)
    -River/Ocean

    Hi, I'm on Xbox too
    Haven't had any luck so far with the "X" press Railfan screenshot. I still use the "Xbox" button and "Y" for screen captures. These should automatically upload to Xbox live and save from there. Alternatively if you go into Recent Captures from the Home screen you can upload to Onedrive.

    Yes. Once downloaded to your mobile device (ensuring minimum of 1920x1080 resolution) click on "Upload a file", select chosen image and click "Full Image".
