Final Fantasy XIV previews changes coming to group pose functionality
Getting a screenshot right is serious business. Final Fantasy XIV added its group pose functionality in patch 3.1 to make it that much easier for players to get together and get just the right screenshot, but with patch 3.2 that functionality is being expanded even further. The latest official post on the matter shows off how players can use this new functionality, starting with the ability to shift the camera focus between the various characters in the shot.

Players can also change the camera pitch and choose between having all subjects face the camera or retain their previous orientations. Pets and minions will now also turn to face the camera, and new adjustments are in place to improve how emotes work with actions such as petting your favorite minion. It’s not new dungeons, but it is the sort of thing that makes screenshots in dungeons that much more satisfying.

Can I queue up while I have my chocobo out? How about letting me take my chocobo into class/story duties? We get the bird through the main story so why not?

This! I have a ridiculous FFXIV screenshot folder (I stopped looking once it broke 25gb) but the most amazing part of this announcement was that mega angry potato. Look at his lil fangs! And kitty ears! And how angry he is at being pet!

Keep it up, this is why I rather just pay for the for the MMO flat out. When the company wants to actually work for the money, they can do some interesting things.

When I first read the title I wanted to make fun of it but it really does seem like a good idea.

melissaheather I really enjoyed the beta nice crafting system, the wicked short leash on mobs made kiting a pain though. If this had been B2P I’d have gotten it but I wasn’t up for a subscription game.

As someone who takes a lot of screenshots kn this game, I’m looking forward to this. Now if only I could pause combat for that perfect shot (or just remove the time delay between screenshots)

I keep feeling this nagging feeling that this is a game I’ve completely overlooked, and shouldn’t have.

Wonderful!  I hope this draws attention in other MMOs to screenshots as popular area for QOL tweaks.
