No, but you can manually enter a resolution or use the oversize app to resize the window.
Generally when I play SE I have well over 100fps in most cases, but for taking large high resolution images the 3090 is perfect and doesnt lag my system.
Doc, is there some way to take very large resolution screenshots on a 1080P display without oversizing the window? I've been able to make 4K cubemaps but the program always stalls when I try to do it from the surfaces of planets that have dense atmospheres (it seems to work when it's a planet that doesn't have an atmosphere curiously enough.)
What I basically want to do is take a single 4K or even 8K screenshot of my SE window when I'm only running SE at 1080P or even windowed 720P mode. Theoretically the video card should be able to do this. Especially since I can do the cubemaps in 4K (except on a planet with a dense atmosphere for some reason.)
Yes, technically you can do a viewport hack with cheat engine and trick the game into rendering into a frustum that is larger than your window. However, this will not allow you to screenshot outside of your window as you cannot capture pixels outside of it. In fact, nothing outside is rendered anyways.
Instead, what you can do is treat that as an individual tile on a much larger resolution mosaic and "build" a final screenshot with a much larger resolution by applying an offset to each "tile". Unfortunately, you can't really do this without having the source code, but it is something that is planned and in the works by none other than yours truly.
Huge screenshots also have huge sizes and most formats have a limit of 65536x65536 (if they don't run out of space and corrupt).
Google drive link since chrome cannot load the image (firefox can!)
