Simutrans 102.1, pak128 + MLM dev. (for the stations) + TER 2n NG + z22500 (find here => http://www.simutrans-france.fr.nf/doku.php?id=en:fefe ).

Two suburb train lines running under/over the other. The downer one isn't very used so only TER 2n NG (or z26500) are used whereas the upper one uses z22500 since it's overcrowded.
This line cross the main city of the map which is entirely fictional with fictional names ...
The other line will go back in a tunnel because the city doesn't let any place for it  :-[

Sorry gauthier and ger, the Theme is Landscape and player-vehilce. I think the images can not win. There are towns and no landscape or not much.

Will you send new pictures?
Title: Re: Competition: Most beautiful screenshot about landscape and player-vehicle
Post by: gauthier on March 01, 2010, 10:50:58 AM
I thought towns can be part of the landscape  ;D

Okay I will send another one ;)

And please, don't forget to follow the competition's rules (see 1st post). I'll be using these screenshots on simutrans.com (mind you?)... our site needs a renewal badly. ;D

Post by: MoTw on March 01, 2010, 01:59:37 PM
Well, here's my first try:
[right click and show image for better quality & size]
p96c (test version). The coaches are self-painted.

The last train of the night is heading for Lünen Bf. The surrounding landscape is very rural and quiet, only disturbed by the train track and the road connecting Lünen and Helsinki. The train is overtaking the taxi and accelerating up to 100 km/h. Soon, the driver will stop the engines and go to bed :)

(http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=11674)

___________________________

A second one:

It's early sunday morning and the train driver is slowly accelerating his regio-shuttle. He's just entered the little forest over which one little balloon is flying  :D Because of the time, there is no traffic on the street next to the track.

Umm, not really. I just found this screenshots in my folder and posted them, I'll decide later if I take one of these or look for another one. And maybe it's a motivation to others to post a shot. ;)

That's a bit of a low minimum, isn't it, for landscape images?

EDIT: Oh well. I've had a go... link to follow shortly.

It's cool with the grid, too. I like it!
Title: Re: Competition: Most beautiful screenshot about landscape and player-vehicle
Post by: AP on March 01, 2010, 11:13:50 PM
You're probably right. I've played with grid on so much I don't notice it any more! Disregard earlier entry! I thought of a better title too:

(http://files.simutrans.us/filestore/aa/Bt1oXmlzfm.AP_landscape_2.jpg._)
"What do you mean, the brakes don't work?"
Simutrans r2928, pak128-gb v1.07.


"Arrows of Indecision"  ;D
I prefer that title (It's the (derisory) nickname of the BR logo, for those who don't recognise it!).

The temples are conected to the Nishitetsu Futsukaichi Train Station by a Bus Line.

I had tried to create a poll with thread here. But it was not possible. I had it send to the forum and nothing happens. I waited 30 minutes. So I have created a poll in the German forum.

Link is here and is in english: http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=5301

Post by: IgorEliezer on March 15, 2010, 01:25:47 PM
That's because Devotees can add polls only to their own topics.

I changed the settings for a while, so you're able to add a poll here.

Link is here and is in english: http://www.simutrans-forum.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=5301

For unknown reason, I've not been able to access simutrans-forum.de sites for 10 or 12 months (already reported long time ago too). I suspect my IP falls in a blocked IP range.

I still get the timeout. Perhaps it was too much text and images for a single post. I've posted a brief version with links to the images instead of thumbnails. You can vote for your favourite picture here (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=4697.msg46221;topicseen#msg46221)
