    Create a custom Halloween livery in Train Sim World 2 and you could win a free Add-On...

    MicrosoftTeams-image (126).jpg

    It’s time for everyone to put on their scariest costume, and get creative again, with a brand-new Livery Designer competition!

    Grab your cauldron, carve your pumpkin lanterns, and prepare for a fright as the theme for this Livery Designer competition is Halloween.

    Our previous competition pushed what we thought was possible from the Steampunk theme. Each member of the Train Sim World 2 community that entered interpreted the brief in their own unique and wonderful way. This creepy new theme gives you the freedom to find new ways to trick or treat us, though we would certainly prefer the treat!

    HALLOWEEN LIVERY DESIGNER COMPETITION

    We want to see your spookiest creations using the Livery Designer tool. Create a ‘Halloween themed’ livery and you could win a Rush Hour Season Ticket, or new route or locomotive Add-On of your choice, create something monstrous and expand your collection in Train Sim World 2.

    To enter and be in with a chance of winning, here’s what you need to do...

    Start the Livery Designer in Train Sim World 2 and choose a locomotive or wagon for your canvas. Note you cannot use the DB BR 403 ICE 3 or DB BR 406 ICE 3M for this competition.

    Use the tool to create your Halloween themed livery. This must be completely original, void of any copyrighted material or intellectual property, it must not be a real-world livery and must of course, be inoffensive.

    Once you’ve completed your design, take a screenshot in-game showing off your new custom creation. You can use Railfan Shots to make capture easy, see a guide on these here.

    Submit your entry by either replying to this post on Facebook, this post on Twitter, or by posting on our forum in this competition thread. Closing date for entries is 4:00 pm BST 25th October 2021.

    If you want some tips on using the Livery Designer Railfan TV’s Nat has been offering tips and tricks on how to get started, head to our Twitch or YouTube channels to find out more.

    Winners will be announced on RailfanTV. Follow our social channels for the Railfan TV streaming schedule and find out when the winners will be announced.

    We are looking forward to seeing how you interpret the Halloween theme, and how you push your creativity in new spooky ways!

    Head to our website for full competition rules, and terms and conditions.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to ask why the PS4 fix for pixilated liveries wasn’t also made for PS5? We still have pixilated liveries.

    Edit: Mastery rewards too since they include almost as many decals as are available from standard.

    I've got all my Mastery awards enabled ie Overlays, but yet I only have access to the Cathcart 'UFO' decals available.
    Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

    So, I started having a go, but being on PS5, I don't have access to any of the Mastery reward decals and I can't take any fan shots with atmospheric lighting because the livery is all pixellated if I put it anywhere near a route.

    If we can get a fix for the pixellation issue before the competition ends, I'll try and add more detail, but until then...

    It’s nice that with all the horrendous and ongoing issues with Train Sim World, DTG have still got some staff time to spare on things other than fixing all the problems

    At least spending time creating Halloween liveries will take players minds off the fact that their DLC doesn’t work, and give them something to do while they wait for everything to be fixed!

    Perhaps after Halloween there will be a ‘Santa Special’ Livery Competition?

    Creating Halloween liveries will remind PS5 players that they can't activate their Mastery prizes, remind PS5 players that their liveries don't work in the game, perhaps distract PS5 players from the new revelation that they can't have any more trophies in the game...

    I didn't know this, so apologies to anyone who can't apply with what others may have as decals, etc.
    However,
    I'm a PC user and only have access to alien decals, yet have unlocked numerous other mastery decals (and hidden in game pics).
    Unlocking mastery for decals and then not having them for livery design is silly. :(

    EDIT: Big credits to the entries and work so far! :)

    Maybe now wasn’t a good time to hold a competition with the ps5 player base unable to compete…

    Plus you'd have the hassle of thinking what DLC will I have to delete in order to keep my prize if I win.

    I appreciate people are currently frustrated with the ongoing issues on PlayStation 5, however this is not the thread to discuss. Please keep all conversations to the PlayStation section of the forums. As this thread is for Livery Competition entries only.

    Hello, everyone.

    Here is my creation in four pictures.

    The BR 143 with a skull and "glowing red eyes" with bats in front of the moon and a skeleton hand next to the tombstone.

    For the right atmosphere in the background, Cologne Cathedral.

    Happy Halloween! 5bd7ab8a-2266-4e63-b39a-842d24541e62.jpeg.jpg de4eba4a-fbd9-4c36-a277-c8c840f633f6.jpeg.jpg 6d3a39f4-0e6b-40c3-97db-56dc700cc6e4.jpeg.jpg 0a978d96-1348-4356-989e-cea73727e25f.jpeg.jpg

    Have not entered one of these competitions before but decided I should for once! Here is my Halloween-themed livery on the F40PH-3C engine.

    ...and here is my contribution for the "Halloween Livery Designer Competition". As always very nice creations so far! This time I decided to use an escort car from "Clinchfield Railroad". I think some typical assets, that should never be missing for Halloween, are pumpkins. So I created some evil looking versions of them, as as required in the task...oh and our little alien friend seems to join again too. ;)

    On Halloween Night after the last train leaves, you may catch a glimpse of something more supernatural showing up at the platform. Witches get on and ofd to preform their witchy deeds, casting their weird and wonderful spells around the city. And they travel around on this special 1938 stock set nicknamed The Electropneumatic Broomstick.

    Just wondering how is the judging going to work as just one photo is allowed?

    Absolutely wonderful entries everyone, I'm sure the Dovetail team are going to have lots of enjoyment judging! We will announce the winner next week.

    Hello everyone, apologies it has taken a while to get around to sharing the runners up. First I would like to state that the standard of entries in this competition were quite fantastic, and I have had much fun looking at them all since I returned from holiday.

    I look forward to seeing what everyone creates in the future.

    An honourable mention to Sparmi who was a part of the voting panel this time as they were the previous winner - It was a pleasure to see you also taking part.

    Runner up 1 - space#1043
