    Welcome back to the Train Sim World Screenshot Contest! This is the 1st week of 2020.

    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, even better if it’s 4K!
    • Note: you can take 4K screenshots by pressing CTRL+F12 combination, as long as you set Screenshot Quality to High in the game settings.
    • Screenshots must fit the theme of the week, as stated at the beginning of this post.
    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 4 weeks!

    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)

    GOOD LUCK!

    The first time I tried uploading a high-quality screenshot the website says the file is too large. The file is about 12Mb. Any ideas on how to upload 4K screenshots?

    The 4K screenshots are in PNG format, converting them to JPG will probably help.

    As there is no snow falling or even cold here we can enjoy winter in Train Sim World, a DB BR 146.2 is waiting for the passengers to 'slide into the coach' as the platforms seems to be very icy on the Main Spessart Bahn: Aschaffenburg - Gemünden route.

    Just a little question:

    4K screenshots posted by thearkerportian or Rob Jansen have resolution 4096x2160
    but correct 4K at 16:9 is 3840x2160
    My game aslo create HQ screenshot at 4096x2160 so I rather post them in native resolution 2560x1440
    Is there some bug about that size or that wider 4K (4096) it's OK ?

    Not to clutter up to much, but the game creates these 4K ones, this size is known an Cinema 4K it seems, but still is recognized as 4K (4096 × 2160 (full frame, 256∶135 or ≈1.90∶1 aspect ratio)

    That's not a problem at all, I'm mainly just looking for higher resolutions so that we could include various dimensions on our Instagram page when featuring winners, currently if a user submits a 1920x1080 screenshot, the Instagram post will be limited to a square version (1080x1080). Instagram's best format is 1080x1350 (the latter being the vertical edge) which doesn't work if a screenshot is 1920x1080. Hope that explains it!

    So 16:9 aspect ratio condition isn't strict, that is just limit for ultra wide screenshots (21:9).
    Thanks for reply, I will set Screenshot Quality to High again when DCI 4K resolution is OK.

    It's not super strict, but you have to keep in mind that screenshots go into the loading screens, so they must be at least 1920x1080 in order to fit onto the screen properly. If any side is smaller than that then we are dealing with blank spaces which is a basis to reject screenshot a victory. Not that it happens very often, however!

    Nice one Matto140. A very crisp wintery shot. Brrr, make's you feel cold.


    Now the running silent phase has finished I'll say thanks. ;)
    Unfortunately the picture was only saved in HD resolution. I spent so long positioning the 166 to get it "just right" I didn't want to go though it all again once I'd seen the new recommendations! :) I'll up the pixels for any fresh shots.
