(imported from here) What is it? Screenshot of the Week (SOTW) is a small contest that will take place Weekly. Each week will be given out a 'theme' which will be the theme for all the screenshots on that week. (Ex. if Keyword is Offroading, all the screenshots of that week MUST be themed after that) The keyword will be given each Sunday, and you will have time to post your screenshot until Friday. Saturday and Sunday the pictures will be voted from a jury and the screenshot with most votes will be the winner for that week. Me and the judges will not take part to the contest of course. There is no prize, but the first 3 will have their name in the winners list under. Rules: Screenshot must be inherent to the Week's Theme. 1 Screenshot per User only. (If you change your mind, you can still change picture, but not after the deadline!) Resolution Range: minimum of 1280x720 to 1920x1080 (Or whatever resolution is near to those if you don't use 16:9 resolutions) NO EDITING, CC, Brigthness&Contrast changes. Taking High-Resolution Screenshot (ALT+P) and scale it down using any Image Editor is allowed. Using Ingame PostFX is allowed. Attach the image to your post using the Attachment Manager! Screenshot can be submitted as soon as the Keyword is given out, and the dead-line is set to Friday at 23:59 GMT+0 You picture could be rejected if it doesn't meet any of the requirements above. Tips: *I highly suggest everybody to use the 'Scale-Down' technique to take great quality shots. It consists in taking a screenshot using the 'ALT+P' combination, that will generate a high-resolution image that will be saved into (Documents/BeamNG.Drive/Cache). I recommend to be in Windowed mode while using this function, as it may bug out in Fullscreen mode. *Free Camera mode might help you getting a good camera angle for you shot. SHIFT+C to activate it, WASD To move around and mouse to turn the view. *Hide the HUD/UI! Shift+U To toggle it. *Lower FOV (Field of View) helps to achieve a more 'serious' shot. You can set FOV ONLY when you are in FreeCamera mode , then go to the Side-Bar, and navigate to 'Effects': *Getting a good composition is always a +1. *Changing Day-Time might fit better for some occasion (Google around, you will find how to do that) Here's an example shot in which I used ONLY the ingame PostFX and the Scale-Down technique. This picture is not taking part to the contest as said above.
