    Hey guys, I'm looking for screenshots to use in promotional materials, news posts, videos, steam etc. Anywhere where we need images for marketing or official purposes. For example, Valve now requires that every news post we do has to have an 800x450px image uploaded.

    Requirements
    • If the screenshot features a player-made ship, please credit the individual so we can also do so. Preferably also have their permission. While we don't have to get permission to use screenshots of player-made ships, we generally won't do so unless permission is given.
    • If the screenshot contains non-original work, e.g. a ship from Star Wars, you must state so in your post.
    • Only post screenshots you took yourself!
    • Please try and upload images that are at least 1920x1080px. If you can't that's ok, but we'll only be able to use them in certain situations. The higher the resolution, the better!
    • Must be vanilla, default texture pack, no mods.

    When posting a screenshot, also post links to any player-made ships or their profile so they can be credited.

    CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR

    Steam news screenshots (will be cropped to 800x450px, 1920x622px or 2108x460px).
    Steam library (will be cropped to 600x900px, 1920x620px or 640x360px)

    Credit

    For steam news, we will credit the image in the news post itself. For steam library, we will likely credit the individual in the next news post.

    Examples:

    Steam news

    Steam library

    I only have a 1680*1050 monitor, do you neccessarily need 1920px sizes? Or can I recrop my screenshots to 800x450 if I only want to offer screens for the Steam news?

    Or is it also possible that I upload 600x900 screenshots for the library?

    I think I have a few. I'll try and refrain from posting shots that feature Cru's glorious beams though (no mods after all...)
    All images are taken by me.

    When you upload them just mention that they are below 1920x1080, we can use them for those other image sizes. Upload with the highest resolution you have.

    Wonderful screenshots so far guys. Definitely will be able to use these 😀

    Variety is great as well e.g. fleets, stations, asteroids, interiors etc. especially lots of them at once kinda like:

    Any screenshots in StarMade that are visually appealing. Hell, sometimes I've needed just a good procedural background to use.

    Jake_Lancia Post that one with the grouped fleet of matching ships! It's glorious!

    Here are some of mine:






    Edit;
    If you want a good procedural background, here you go:


    Haven't been able to find bright red backgrounds like that in a while, sadly. Feels like the background colours were tamed a bit since I took that screenshot (Which is a shame, cause I think we can all admit the bright red looks glorious).

    Unfortunately I tend to make recreation ships, which might be a bit iffy to use for promotional material.
    However, my interior work might be good for this: Here's some interior shots from a shuttlebay (loosely-based off the NX-01's shuttlebay) I made. The rail system is, make no mistake, one of the greatest features in StarMade.

    (rejected, but subsequently updated) fleet submission, and accompanying station. I should get back to working on those...

    IDK, random test interior. Not the greatest, I'll admit.
