    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Summer




    You can vote for next week's theme in the poll attached to this thread. What is your choice?

    Follow us on Instagram (instagram.com/trainsim) to see your screenshots featured on our feed!

    How does it work?

    You can submit your screenshot to the thread, and every Friday we will choose which screenshots will go to the loading screens. Shortly after, we will open a new thread and announce the winners. Each week has its own theme which is voted for by the community.

    Competition Rules:
    • Limit is 2 screenshots per person; 1 screenshot per post.
    • Include in your post the route the screenshot was taken on as well as the name of the train (if applicable).
    • Screenshots must be in a 16:9 resolution, at least 1920x1080 pixels.
    • Screenshots must fit the theme of the week, as stated at the beginning of this post.
    • In order to qualify for the competition, screenshots must be taken from products published by Dovetail Games that are currently on sale.
    Other Rules:

    • Official content only. Please make sure anything that is not available on the Steam Store or Dovetail Store is not shown in the screenshot. - This means no reshade, repaint mods, track upgrades or workshop routes.
    • Your entry may be disqualified if it is deemed to not follow these rules. Please limit chat to only when absolutely necessary.
    • Competition closes at mid-day Friday (UK time). The winner will be chosen every Friday.
    • Winner's Prize: The winning screenshot will appear in the game as a loading screen for 1 week!
    (Please Note since the new update which changes loading times we have decided to change it to 1 week)


    T&C:
    • Please refer the terms and conditions for this competition here:
    https://dovetailgames.com/competition-terms-and-conditions/
    • Note that by submitting an entry to this contest, you are consenting to us using your screenshot as a loading screen and showing it on our social media channels (such as Instagram)

    I like this mood very much, was my preferred 47 shot for last week's selection of mine, but didn't gain much attention. Same now ;) so just leaving it here for your enjoyment.

    You do realise that you can't post screenshots with unofficial content? Both include Virtual Railroad's DB BR 218 VRot ExpertLine which is available on their website and not on steam. Therefore it doesn't qualify for this contest.
    Suprised that someone with 'well known member' sign on their profile would do such a rookie mistake.

    The AP track enhancement pack is visible in shot.

    P.S. If you want to withdraw it from the comp, why not simply delete the post?

    In your opinion.
    The track is barely visible but you deem it to be AP, could you please re-create my shot to prove that fact? It seemed to be fine on it's last outing. 8 likes & no complaints.
    Because I have chosen to leave it for folks to enjoy.
    As far as I am aware that is not against the rules.
    Sorry I hadn't realised you had been appointed the position of Forum Moderator, I thought that was DTG Jamie's role?
    May I also suggest if you have a problem with any contribution this thread is not the place to start a conversation.

    It's a fact.
    [​IMG]
    The DTG track (above) doesn't have the 3D sleeper and chair modelling of the AP track pack, which can be seen in your shot. The ballast texture and colour are also different, though less obvious when in shade. I was unable to replicate your lighting or sun position, but I don't have the AP weather pack installed.

    You guys are arguing like school girls. Especially TrainsAreBest because the screenshot you posted has the same tracks as Cscarpenter's screenshot does. So therefore it is likely he did not used AP track.

    You are arguing with Cscarpenter like he's the only one who broke the rules when in reality he likely didn't, what tops this cake is the fact that another person has posted screenshot where you can LITERALLY spot
    1 - Armstrong Powerhouse's Class 158 Perkins Enhancement Pack
    2 - RWenhancer + shader
    Not to mention that he posted 4 screenshots when the limit is only 2.
    And you are pretending that his screenshot doesn't break rules??
    EDIT: There is another person that broke the rules and I called him out already.

    Maybe t's a route issue, or my config since I must play in low quality.

    Yeah it's likely because of low settings.
    If you play GEML, you can notice missing wires near Stratford on low settings. But never on high settings.
