It's time (long overdue I'm afraid to say) for the latest TXU competition, this time a screenshot competition.

There have been a few similar competitions over at the ES site, and we'll feature similar rules here as well.

There are four categories for screenshots, and only one entry per category is permitted:

i) Best sector picture

ii) Best 'action' picture (ships/explosions involved in combat)

iii) Best Xtended shot (must contain a feature developed by the Xtended Mod)

iv) Best station complex shot

The person to achieve the best overall results will also receive the prestigous 'screenshooter' award for best portfolio...

Guidelines for posting screenshots:

* A Minimum resolution of 1084x800 is accepted though 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 would be preferabe
* High Shaders and High Quality Textures must be enabled (X3 boot)
* At least AAx2 and AFx2 must be enabled, preferably higher (X3 boot)
* Screenshots must be filed on topic in thumbnail format
* Screenshots must not feature HUD's, fps counters or mouse-pointers
* Uploading to Imagevenue.com is prohibited due to x-rated content advertising - This also includes any other image hosting sites that feature x-rated content
* Content featured in screenshots (applying to XTM) must be of the latest XTM version and preferably not being related to the original X3 product.

SSwamp_Trooper Edit:
* Don't use Photobucket as it resizes you images to 1024 x 768

Screenshots filed not meeting the above requirements
won't be considered as candidates to be included in the official XTM Screenshot index.

Please note:

Screenshots must be listed horizontally and clearly marked as to what category they fall into, as demonstrated here (Image would be replaced by the IMG tag code and link):

Best Sector: Image Best Action: Image Best Xtended: Image Best Station Complex: Image

No non entry posts should be placed in this topic. A seperate topic for questions and answers on this competition is here:


Moderators are asked to split all non entry posts from this topic and add them to the stickied Q & A topic.

Voting instructions will be revealed closer to the time.

The competition closes on Friday 27th July 2007. The voting will open shortly after.

Have fun shooting screenshots!

Good work so far, but just need to clarify something.

Each person is allowed one picture/entry per category. These also need to be clearly marked as to what category they are entered for.
