Hey CCP!

Can we have a "Share Screenshot"-button?

Don't think it'll need much more explanation than the idea, but for those who doesn't know why, it's a very handy tool:

* Explaining nabs something can be done with this feature ( a simple drawing system might be implemented if deemed needed)

* bragging will be made so much easier

* Fleet composition of enemy fleets from scouts can be quickly surveyed

* FC's can diagnose from given info based on the view of scouts

And so on and so forth

Hope you'l think about it

Kind regards

Train your scouts better. Maybe trust them and not need a screeny.

Scouts have value, don't pee down their air hose.

I recommended a tool that does exactly what you want, but failed to explain why I think people should just use that instead of CCP making an ingame tool.

A tool like Gyazo is better than anything CCP could do because:
1. They are dedicated to doing ONLY screen capture so they do it very well.
2. It can capture things in any window, not just the EVE client.

-1 because CCP doesn't need to waste time creating a feature that already has tons of free tools that accomplish the same thing better

Also, -1 because they would also need to maintain it after adding it, which may also cost additional dev-time, while using existing OOG tools is absolutely free.

isn't that a native Steam function

well, you'd have to play with steam, and all your friends... lol sorry


Agree all the answers : other tools do that well.


should they implement a gyazo like function and should this start to kill band with on client this would only cause more problem
also IGB is out of the picture, so a weblink in game will be moot before the feature is implemented



edit, I do remember a wow addon that was 3D "aware" and tentatively tried to do what you initially explained, never worked
simply sharing a screnshot with instruction I can only tell you : use this, you'll like it

http://getgreenshot.org/

this is a opensource screenshoter like gyoza but no ads and don't need login/password to upload (will use imgur by default) but is funny because it include a paintbrush like function with upload when finished and then gives you a link you can share

the "drawing board" function, you get that in skype I think, so screenshot to clipboards, paste in drawing board, the play


back to answer : too many free exisiting things already there
