Simutrans Steam Screenshot Contest
« on: November 01, 2020, 06:50:20 PM »

Hello, everyone! I, Roboron, have the great pleasure of opening the first Simutrans Steam Screenshot Contest (or, as I like to call it, "SSSC"). This is also the first contest the Simutrans Community has started in over 4 years, so we are very excited! And we have a good reason. The prize for the winners is... to be displayed on the Steam Store Page!

Participation
1 - There's a category for every pakset (including workshop paksets and the yet unavailable pak128.cs).
2 - You can submit as many screenshots as you want.
3 - You only need to submit your screenshots as replies on this thread.
4 - You need to include title and category (pakset) for every screenshot. Screenshots without title or category will not be eligible.
5 - You have until December 21st to submit your screenshots!

Theme and guidelines
1 - The theme is... Transport structures! (Unoriginal, you say?). Let's show new players what is possible to build with Simutrans. A great train station? Perfect! An amazing road network! Sweet! An underground complex? Wow! A country road with nothing more than grass? Not so impressive...
2 - To keep screenshots clean, try to disable city/station names and avoid showing title bars, overcrowded menus, etc.
3 - While I won't impose any limits to screenshot size, recommended size is 1920x1080 as this is the most common resolution.

Prizes
1 - For the first winner of each category: The screenshot will be displayed on the main Simutrans Store Page, alongside the winners of all categories.
2 - For the second winner of each category: The screenshot will be used as the header for the pakset DLC.
3 - For the third winner of each category: The screenshot will be used as the background of the pakset store page.
4 - For winners 1-10 of each category: The screenshot will be displayed on the pakset store page (or workshop) page.

Voting
Voting will be done on a wiki survey (I will post a new announcement when the time comes). Everyone (participants and non-participants) can vote, but you can only vote one time per category.
If two or more screenshots have the same votes, our benevolent dictator will benevolently select a winner, taking into account theme and guidelines.

Participation via other platforms
You can also participate through the following platforms (don't forget to include title and category):
  • Reddit: Submitting your screenshots to /r/simutrans/
  • Twitter: Using the hastag #SimutransSteamScreenshot
  • Steam: submitting your screenshots to the "Screenshots" section of the community Hub

What size should the screenshots have? And where do we submit them?

What size should the screenshots have?

Good question, I haven't thought about it. I don't want to define a minimum/maximum size, but I think I can define the recommended size as 1920x1080 (as this is the most frequent resolution - see image). I shall add this as a guideline, not as a rule.


For the second questions:

3 - You only need to submit your screenshots as replies on this thread.

This sounds great!

On the resolution, if most people are playing with 1920x1080 screens then their simutrans window would be taking up a smaller area than that (I'm assuming most people play in windowed mode rather than fullscreen).

Image is taken from Stephenson-Siemens network game of simutrans-extenden, and shows the following modes of transport: bus, tram, train, air and boat (hovercraft). Only maglev and narrow-gauge is missing.

Pretty impressive spaghettis Lieven, thank you for submitting them.

Status update, so far the only participations are the ones on this post. No participations were made on other platforms, but we are at the middle of the contest, so you have plenty of time to participate yet.

I edited the end of the first post to show a list of participations.

First participations from Steam, from user iGi:

Pak128.german - Oktoberfest needs more beer!


Pakset: Pak128.German - Title: freight distribution station
.

EDIT: Also from Reddit. "New Harbor"


I think I will extend the participation period 3 weeks. This is both because I will very busy the following weeks and because I was expecting more submissions (I know at least one user who didn't participate due to lack of time). New submission deadline is December 21st.

Yeah ! 4 participations in 2 days ! Pretty exciting !

@danivenk Impressive map ! The infrastructures are really impressive ! What a quantity of addons (I love the multi-lane bridges ! Are they compatible with Standard Simutrans or they only can work with the OTRP project ?) I also love the train station extension, they offers to create some beautiful and so complex stations !

Yeah those bridges are beautiful, especially the Kinashi arch bridge. How are they coded? Is the source available for inspiration?

There are different ways, but most easy is with different stops. The sources for the bridges are included, so you can see for yourself:

The addons are all compatible with Standard. However, the (Kinashi) bridge addon you are talking about is part of the SIS project which has been discontinued for now.

Ah so... Those nice bridges are in fact a row of bus/train stops with special design! Nice trick. Just wondering why there is no station label near the Kinashi bridge?
