Judging Criteria

Votes will be made by the Trainz Community, and therefore the criteria for a winning entry will primarily be in their hands. 

Some suggested features would include:
 - choose an interesting scene with a variety of train related content
 - ensure your environment settings, including sun direction, fog levels, sky colour etc look good
 - find the right camera angle to showcase the main "theme" of the scene
 - when updating in TRS19, try replacing with different tracks and ballast to get a good match
 - experiment with TurfFX and Clutter effects to enhance the foreground
 - identify any assets in your scene that could be swapped out for a "better" asset (e.g. does your scene include older "2D" people?)
