One Shots: No more worlds to conquer

There’s that special joy that every screenshotter knows when you’re able to get that perfect angle, that photogenic pose, and then capture it for all time. I kind of feel that Rob was able to get that with this first picture from Star Trek Online.

What is his captain thinking? Is he bummed that the Federation has put a kibosh on his plans to warmonger his way across the galaxy? Does he want that planet to be named “Glory to Rob the Magnificent” and populate it with adoring subjects? Or is he merely contemplating the deep mysteries of what was in that replicator ration he ate for lunch?

No matter which it is, he’s looking profound and deep doing it!

Will we ever get a proper seafaring expansion for World of Warcraft? I’d be so down with exploring the seas on my own ship, far away from the misspellings and casual racism of the world chat channel. Maybe I’m alone in thinking that boats would be pretty cool in this game, but Brandon’s picture of a couple of Tauren canoeing made me think of it once more.

What do you do when a monster looks like it would benefit more from a hug than a beatdown? You still kill it, because nobody ever got epic-quality loot from a hug.

Rafael met up with this fluffy giant in Blade and Soul: “This raid boss looks so tame and lovable that I couldn’t help it. And to think that just a few minutes earlier this dude wiped a group of 24 in one shot.”

“There are lots of beautiful places in Aion,” Imayb1. “I find almost everywhere screenshot-worthy.”

Now why can’t my backyard look like this? I swear, MMOs are out to shame me of my lack of both interior and exterior decorating skills. In any case, a lovely shot with those deep summer night blues.

“Places I can’t help but take pictures of?” BalsBigBrother posted. “Well I have only managed to get one character to North Ithilien in Lord of the Rings Online so far, but I suspect that that it will soon become one of those places. The place is pretty stunning to wander through. I have taken a lot of screenshots but still have so much left undiscovered.”

^ This, 100%.

One of my weird screenshot quirks is that I frequently find myself taking pictures of food and table place settings in MMOs. Always wish I could try some of that food myself to see how it tastes (probably a bit pixely). This week’s screenshot challenge is all about showing off food in game, either your character eating or simply checking out the offerings on display!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Well seen as The Repopulation servers are back up I thought I would go take a look. Ran around a bit, couldn’t remember what to do and then logged out as I didn’t really have time to figure it out.

Not sure I have the will power or motivation to do much more to be honest.

I got someone else’s account. My character, their skills, inventory, bank, vehicles, etc.. Quite amusing. That hasn’t happened to me since the 90s. There’ll be the wipe before release, so meh.

Food and drink play important roles in Black Desert Online, whether it is for commerce, to feed workers, horses, or pets. I do a bit of cooking in one of my more modest accommodations in Heidel City. Apparently, one of my pets (the Pug) can’t stay off the bed…just like the one I have in real life. Always hungry.

First up is of the ruins of Ascalon. I feel that the charr starting area has an unappreciated melancholic beauty to it.

Second is of my boyfriend cosplaying as shovel knight. He needs a helmet with horns though.

And if we’re going to talk about food can we talk about the watermelons in GW2’s Shaemoor, you could fit an Asura in there. Also,the last one is when you try to take a picture of the watermelon and you become the watermelon.

Interesting sights from my Revelation Online playtime. I don’t have much time to detail them all out (nor have I had much time to play the game), but the cat one was definitely a surprising find for me. I had to snap a picture quickly before it jumped away!

What’s that pink thing in the 3rd panel? o.O

I think it’s some kind of magic pink star narwhal that I had trouble getting a good pic of. :P Whenever the translations are fully complete, I will probably make another character and be ready with the print screen button that time.

Love the moon in that last pic.

Woot! Thanks for the shout out Justin. Pics of raid bosses are rarely so adorable.

This week I will have to keep it short and sweet. After 5 good years, my computer, now know as “old yeller”, died. Yup. I may bury it in the backyard. So, I’m building a new one and it is taking more time than I like.

The cap I have for this week also died as part of the old Livefyre archive, so I thought I would post it again.

There are so many questions I have about it. Is it self serve? Are there giant pigs roaming the snowing mountain side? Is their a giant vegan option too?

The rings of that planet don’t look right, and given the star’s position, shouldn’t we be able to see them wrap all the way around? Other than that, nice shot.

Reader

I think that’s a moon in front of the planet.

n o the rings start behind that and then in empty space randomly. now that i look at it it’s really odd lol

Reader
Witches

No, i mean you only see the moon, the planet is behind it and not visible, only part of the rings are visible.

4 bodies in the picture but you only see 3, and the rings of the 4th.

Even if that were a moon in front of a different planet with the rings, given where the star is, the rings should be visible until they go behind that moon (they do that on the bottom part of the ring, but not the top part). So something’s still not right.

All he conquered was this mantle piece.

His conquering days are over too. Not the worst way to go, mind you.

The conqueror of this particular structure remains unknwon.

lets see what order these screens post in shall we!

6 it may be hard to tell but this is a lightning strike during a rain storm. the weather effects in grw are just fantastic in general especially rain storms.

4 i unlocked a cigar cosmetic item for my operator so i decided to add on the eye patch. don’t worry folks it’s purely for looks!

5 thermal imaging is not really particularly useful as it only lights up for bare skin. which is rather odd. so i generally stick to nv for low light conditions, which works really well.

1 some of the vistas in the game are just breath taking. the draw distance and detail is just incredible and the LOD is so well done i haven’t noticed it even a little.

2 we came across a group of civvies raving ina rain storm who didn’t seem to care we were gunning down narcos around them. we joked the whole time they were feeling the molly or cocaine too hard to care.

3 the game is normally really good looking but the cutscenes ramp that up to 12. keeping intact all of your cosmetics choices in the process.

We are all made of stars. Here are the remains of a cosmic takeout run…

A neutron star is the collapsed core of a large (10–29 solar masses) star. Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars known to exist. Though neutron stars typically have a radius on the order of 10 km, they can have masses of about twice that of the Sun. They result from the supernova explosion of a massive star, combined with gravitational collapse, that compresses the core past the white dwarf star density to that of atomic nuclei. Most of the basic models for these objects imply that neutron stars are composed almost entirely of neutrons, which are subatomic particles with no net electrical charge and with slightly larger mass than protons. They are supported against further collapse by neutron degeneracy pressure, a phenomenon described by the Pauli exclusion principle. If the remnant has too great a density, something which occurs in excess of an upper limit of the size of neutron stars at 2–3 solar masses, it will continue collapsing to form a black hole.

As a bonus, a nice bright mainline class A as well as a K sharing binary orbit with a collapsed carbon star while fuel scooping.
