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

    The holiday season is here, gifts are wrapped, the fire is lit and 2020 draws to an end!

    We were inundated with entries, and the members of the Train Sim World 2 community submitted some immensely inspiring work for our Autumn Livery Designer competition. Congratulations to our runners up Monder, Maik Schuster and overall winner Manticor225, your work was outstanding!

    It’s time for everyone to get creative again with a brand new Livery Designer competition. This will continue the seasonal theme and welcome 2021 with a Winter flourish.

    As an added bonus, this time around we are giving you a little extra time to perfect your designs too.

    WINTER LIVERY DESIGNER COMPETITION

    We want to see your artistic creations using the Livery Designer tool. Create a ‘Winter Themed’ livery and you could win a new route including the incredible new LGV Méditerranée: Marseille – Avignon, and locomotive Add-Ons to 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 SNCF TGV Duplex, DB BR 403 ICE 3, or DB BR 406 ICE 3M for this competition.
    • Use the tool to create your Winter themed livery. This must be completely original, void of any copyrighted material or intellectual property, not be a real-world livery and 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.
    • You can submit your entry to this thread. Closing date for entries is 6:00 pm GMT on 8th January 2021.
    Winners will be announced on RailfanTV, these can be accessed on Twitch or YouTube. Follow our social channels for the Railfan TV streaming schedule and find out when the winners will be announced.

    You submitted some truly creative masterpieces in the last competition, so we can’t wait to see what you create and how you are going to go one better!

    Real quick, is it true that you have to be from the UK or Germany to win these contests? I’m reading the conditions and it appears that way.

    I don't think the CSX logo you have on there is allowed.

    I created a different winter livery, which is based on a fictional "Ice Rail" design with a self-made logo, including the snowman. Always a pleasure to participate. Wish everyone happy holidays...

    Looks like a TGV but I can guarantee it is a new model of Bombardier Talent 2 or something like this...a Talent Six :D :D :D

    So my problem is I made 2 designs and I like them both and can't decide which one to submit. Too bad we can't do two submissions like with the screen shot contest.

    ...my second version of the "ICE RAIL" design, just finished in time before Christmas. It looks a bit more colorful and this time the focus is more on the landscape than on the ice. That was my (second) contribution for this competition, now let's wait and see what the others still have to offer. ;)

    After a tough choice I submit the following entitled "Nights Of Nunavut"

    The snow covered mountains of Nunavut reflect in the frigid waters as the northern lights dance amongst the stars. The script says Northern Lights and Nunavut in the native Inuktitut language. The obverse has the same in English and the ends of the car contain the flag of Nunavut. Enjoy!

    Here is the one I didn't choose. Admin's this is not an entry just so you know I'm not trying to double enter. However if we are allowed to enter two items then count this one as well.

    It is purely for informative purposes only and is not a submission.:D If you want to remove this one though it's fine!

    Again this is not an entry!!!! Unless we can do two......

    My problem is I like the cat one better, but the poll said others liked the landscape so went with what the community liked.

    I don’t think there is a limit on how many entries you can make. It doesn’t say anywhere that you can only submit one. The winner in the Autumn competition had submitted two different versions of their livery.

    Well they were both similar, these were both really different.

    I think they only let you enter one, at least that was my understanding.

    Actually having gone through the rules I didn't see anything saying we can't do two. Hmmmm....if that is true then I submit them both!

    Hello and in retrospect Merry Christmas.

    Unfortunately I have not yet received a reward for the Autumn Livery Designer Competition.

    What should I do?

    ...one last idea for the winter livery competition (I know that I already posted two). Therefor I used the boxcar again. It can be seen two howling wolfs in an arctic winter night, surrounded by glowing polar lights. The moon plays an important role and that's why it is shown so large. Because of the night it is a variation of brightness contrasts and shapes...

    ...there is no reason to be offended, yours looks different. My focus is on the wolf. For a winter design aren't much possibilities, than snow, pinetrees, darkness, ice and polar lights (or christmas assets).

    It wasn't really mine that was similar (aside from the night with northern lights) to that entry. Do we really need to enter 3 items though? I get with a theme we will have similarities, but I'm more upset that you already had 2 nice entries that didn't look like anyone else's.

    That's not very fair to flood the contest if other people are spending so much time on one entry. You'd be mad if you worked hard on one design, but then someone else has 3 nice designs instead of one.

    You should pick the one entry you like most and submit that one. When I posted 2 items on this I did so by basically saying only one of them was an entry. We have that creative section post for us to add extra items that didn't get in the contest but we still are proud of making.

    Obviously the way the rules are written for this it does leave it pretty vague on how many things we can enter, so that'll have to be looked into for future contests.

    And anyone in the southern hemisphere will tell you winter is palm trees, beaches, bbq, and laughing at people in the North shoveling snow off their cars. That entry I did before I ran out of layers was actually going to be the snow globe with the northern lights in it, on a beach saying "Greetings from Australia". So yeah you can get out of the box with ideas if needed.

    Sorry everyone I'm done venting.

    Well here is my two cents. Obviously all of the entries will have some kind of similarities, as they should considering we are all working within a single theme. That being said, I wouldn't say that there aren't much possibilities for a winter design. There's the technical aspect of creating something but another piece (I would argue the bigger piece) is being creative. As we get later into the competition and more entries are submitted, there are more designs to look through which then may play a part in the inspiration/creative process of some others who have not submitted yet.

    When looking through the entries, I would say in my opinion some designs do appear to have been inspired by others and/or have combined elements of other entries. Whether or not it was intentional or just chance I can't say but either way, it is just the nature of the game. The only way to avoid that would be for all the entries to be submitted privately, which probably wouldn't be in Dovetail's best interests.

    Regardless, there are some great designs being submitted and it's fun to see what people come up with. Best of luck to everyone.

    Very good feedback! I agree that the rules for the competition are a bit vague. Many designs have similar elements, which cannot be avoided, which is the case not only in this competition but also in real life. It's a a good way of debating that rather than playing off each other. I think that with the limited possibilities of the current Livery Designer we all have delivered very good results.
    Of course I posted a bit to much, but ideas or inspiration are sometimes impossible to control. That's why I often have something to edit afterwards. It will be a fair way to reduce my postings in future competitions, because many of the participants are not graphics professionals...

    With these words we all calm down and best of luck to everyone!

    Actually what I hope they do in the future is have two tiers to this. If I'm not mistaken they had talked about that as a possibility, and it would make sense.

    Intro and advanced. Anyone could enter the intro level and it would be for people who are new to the program. Winners from that category would be put into advanced level the next competition, thus ensuring that people wouldn't be discouraged from wanting to venture out of their comfort zone and take the time and effort to make a design. It would boost casual users too since they wouldn't feel as much pressure to compete.

    Advanced level would also be open to anyone as well and would be for people who may have artistic backgrounds or similar experiences.

    It'd make it challenging and fair for everyone of all backgrounds.

    But yes considering what we have to work with it's amazing seeing what people can come up with.
