Factorio Screenshot Command


This command can be used to take and automatically save a screenshot of your game with the GUI hidden. All arguments (resolution and zoom) are optional. The saved picture will be put in the 'script-output' folder, which can be found in your user data directory.

Screenshot Syntax


The syntax for the screenshot command is as follows:

/screenshot [resolution x] [resolution y] [zoom]

This command has the following arguments:

Resolution XOptional. Your desired horizontal resolution of the screenshot, the default of this is your current window size (well, the current horizontal window size, so if your window was 1920x1080, this would be 1920).
Resolution YOptional. Your desired vertical resolution of the screenshot, the default of this is your current window size (well, the current vertical window size, so if your window was 1920x1080, this would be 1080).
ZoomOptional. How zoomed in the screenshot should be - by default this is set to 1. A value of 2 would zoom in x2 (so it would be double the size, but only half of your game would show).
