Progress Renderer
STOP! See Known Bugs below

Safe to add or remove at any time. You can add it now and disable it in mod settings, so it will be ready for the start of your next game. It auto-enables when starting a new game.

Automatically create scheduled renderings of the full map or only a chosen part of it. There are many options to configure the mod in the settings, including only rendering portions of the map and the render interval.

You can use these renders to create an animated gif or video of your current run. You can also post one on the rimworld.gallery

Automatic quality adjustment
Using the automatic quality adjustment feature for .jpg images, it is now easy to create renders suitable for posting on rimworld gallery[rimworld.gallery]

  • 9 - render the current map
  • 0 - render the current map, ignoring corner markers
You can change the keybinding in Rimworld Options -> Keyboard

Notes and current known problems
  • The 1.5 update has technical improvements and allows disabling the new designations (by default), a requirement for rimworld.gallery
  • For Camera+ 3.1, using non-Vanilla silhouettes causes Camera+ silhouettes to appear in renders. This is being worked on
Reporting bugs
You are welcome to join us on the rimworld gallery discord[discord.gg] and report / ask questions there

Before reporting an issue, try deleting your config. On Windows, this can be found at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Ludeon Studios\RimWorld by Ludeon Studios\Config\Mod_2010777010_PRMod.xml. Also, make sure that if you're using local copies with Fluffy's Mod Manager that you've manually updated.

Finally, please attach your settings with your bug report. Services like hastebin[hastebin.com] are great for that (but I'm not picky on the format).

doesn't work, doesn't render anything

You could try lowering the PPC setting, that should reduce the amount of memory used while rendering. It will also reduce image quality, of course

Can confirm today that in a working mod list the game will hang when this mod tries to take a screen shot of a rectangular map. This is with 64GB of RAM and 12GB of VRAM.

The game is still responsive, I can click on things, but the 'Rendering Map Image...' box stays indefinitely and no screen shot is generated.

Thanks for the response! I know I had issues back in 1.4 with this.

I have an ultra wide monitor so prefer to play rectangular maps usually.

Do you know what the max map size is that will work?
The Village Guy  [author] Jun 25 @ 3:51pm 
Rectangular can be a problem because internally memory has to be reserved for 1000x1000 which might be too much for the image library to handle
Kirbington Jun 25 @ 1:22pm 
By work I mean that maps larger than 325x325 and rectangular rather than square. (Eg 1000x500)
Kirbington Jun 25 @ 1:21pm 
Can anyone confirm if this works with 'Better Map Sizes'?

Back in 1.4 using both used to crash my game, I'm finally building a 1.5 mod list now that most are updated.

For some reason, settings that disable designation visibility and every checkmark disabled does not have any effect on the rendering. I still get an renders where designation for mining and construction visible.

I want to ask that why the mod makes the duplicates of the screenshots, a first batch in a folder named after the seed of the world, then a second batch in a folder named "tmp" in the original folder that is named after the seed.
