New screenshots

#1 Post by dbenage-cx » Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:37 am

Per request of Issue #1668, created a few screenshots for discussion.

With default config

Using customized UI settings

Map types (500 systems, medium settings)

Note, I uploaded indexed versions of the screenshots and the colors are further reduced by imgur on upload, so these should be seen as previews.

Might be nice to have some default links that redirect to the most recent screenshot (Setup_SP -> Setup_SP-v0.4.7-500-MediumSettings.png)

For the galaxy setup settings, adjust some to something other than random.

For the first turn screenshot, zoom in a bit, so it's not mostly empty space.

Not sure if all the map layout images are necessary, but you've got the 3 arm spiral twice, and no 4 arm spiral.

Bump?

Added / adding some to the screenshots page on the wiki regardless.

Something from later in a game, with various empires territories and ships visible would be good.

Attached zip with shots for default config, converted from RGB to indexed colors.
A later game shot is included as Map_Midgame.png
Since the wiki retains previous versions of files, could rename the screenshots to exclude version info.
e.g. Convert Freeorion_0.4.5_b2015-09-01.f203162_ingame-windows_8.JPG to png and move to ShipDesign.png, then update with newer version (though I named the file simply Design.png)
This reduces the need to update links to such files when screenshot changes or version bumps, and allows easier comparison between versions for specific windows.

Just saving as JPG would probably be sufficient and possibly smaller...

indexed->jpg

Jpg settings:
Quality: 90%
Optimize
Progressive
Smoothing: 0.00
Subsampling: 4:4:4
DCT method: Integer
Include Thumbnail

Could reduce settings further for all but Intro (and maybe single player setup) to get them closer to png size, but I'd rather not try to compare each image for noticable artifacts.
