    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Freestyle







    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)

    Great pic, love the shadows, but is Western Mainlines on Steam? I've avoided using it for screenshots because I thought it was only on Just Trains?

    Thanks bellminsterboy for flagging that up, the scenario is indeed "The Cornish Explorer" from the Bristol - Exeter Route not the JT Western Mainline. I have ammended accordingly.
    A case of the old grey matter getting muddled up with my South West of London Routes LOL.
    Cheers

    I guess it's normal for DTG to forgot the screenshot contest every second week...
    It's already 8pm Saturday and still not a single sign of DTG staff "congratulating" the winner.

    Regardless of the theme I am thinking this could be a major factor in why a lot of us have lost interest in this comp.
    21:00 on Saturday night and no clue as to may have been selected as the lucky winner......AGAIN. :mad:
    And add to that we have an additional bank holiday in the UK on Monday to mark the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II, so nothing will happen now until next Tuesday at the earliest. This competition is really becoming a total shambles.
    Even if you do win, with fastload, you rarely get to see your winning contribution as it is relegated to second behing the TSW3 advert.
    By now I believe we all know that TSW3 has been released, do we still need it top of the TSC loading screen week in week out?

    Yeah the passing of Queen Elizabeth II was very unfortunate but, I don't think it's a good excuse to not pick a winner for this contest. Not sure how everyone else feels about it though... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The TSW screenshot competition has also not been judged, though contestants there seem to be a bit more sympathetic, as it's been a busy week for DTG with the release of TSW 3.

    Hmm.

    I think it more has to do with the Queen passing vs TSW3 releasing.

    I fully understand if that is the reason, but be it the passing of the Queen / Launch of TSW3 / Just plain busy as heck / Lack of resource etc. a communication of some sort would have been courteous.
    Plus this is becoming a regular occurence of late, not just a one off due to present circumstances.
