Is It Possible To Take A Screenshot Of The Game, For Example A Screen Shot Of Your Ship, And Make It A Wallpaper Or To Be Used As An Avatar? And If It Is How Do You Do It?
Thanks.

in-game, use the print screen button, or type /screenshot_ and you'll get a list of options.

The two you'll probably use the most are as follows:
/screenshot_jpg (takes a screenshot without the UI)
/screenshot_ui_jpg (takes a screenshot with the UI. this is useful if you want to show something like PVP scores)

The best way I found the get a great pic of your character is to crank your vid settings to the very top. (a bit laggy for me) go into the tailor and hit printscreen. it will take a pic without any of the UI. Use mouse to zoom in on the face. The JPG will be EXTREMELY detailed. For my ship i do the same. Except I go find a nice nebula in a system with nobody else in it. I position the ship exactly where i want it in the shot. Crank everything up again. Take your snapshot.

Not to troll or anything, but you do realize you don't have to type every word with a capital letter? Most annoying.

Glad you've found the /screenshot command though. It can be pretty useful.

^This. Small thing but very annoying. No offence intended.
