Over 6 years of EVE Online Screenshots for your pleasure!

I recently asked some of you how long you had been playing EVE and if you ever saw yourselves playing in another five. The answers I got confirmed that most of us would still be capsuleers in that time frame. All this brought back memories of the last 6 years or so that I've been flying through New Eden, and of all the screenshots I took during those years.

Below you'll find links to 3 Flickr sets of screenshots taken between October 5th 2004 and up to last night. In all, that's over 2400 screenshots taken from various parts of the EVE universe, as I traveled, mined, did PvE and God knows what. It's fascinating to see the evolution of the UI, and how the back-drop & the ship have all evolved over that time!

So, how about yourself? Do you do a lot of screen capture, or is this just a weird hobby of mine?

I love these, I think EvE creates some of the best desktops ever, lol.

You got anymore my friend?

Glad you liked them, and were able to find the collection of screenshots I've got over on Flickr!

I use the systems nebula backgrounds as wallpaper. the WH space ones look better IMO, more detailed.

Excellent images. My screenies tend to have all the clutter of the widgets in them, how do you remove them for the clean screenshot?

CrazyKinux said...

@Anxiir - I often use the screenshots I've taken as wallpapers!

@Tulip - ALT+F9 or CTRL+F9, can't remember which (I'd need to logon and do it to remember) but one of them removes all the UI.

@CrazyKinux - Heh ya. I think everybody does if they know how. Its no surprise though, EVE is such a beautiful game :)
