Post your Minerva screenshots here! Spoilers will be present, naturally.

You should use this tutorial if you don't know what to do, made by Adam Foster himself: Valve Developer Wiki: How To Take Screenshots

To sum it up: You'll need to enable the console. You can do this via Options -> Keyboard -> Advanced -> Enable Developer Console. You can open it in-game by pressing the tilde (~) key. First, use
Code:
sv_cheats 1
to enable cheats. Then, use
Code:
cl_drawhud 0
to remove the HUD,
Code:
impulse 200
to remove the weapon and crosshair,
Code:
noclip
to fly freely through the map,
Code:
notarget
to become invisible in the eyes of your enemies and last but not least
Code:
god
to become invulnerable to damage. For better quality, bind a key to the screenshot command. For example,
Code:
bind f4 screenshot
Don't use the screenshot command directly from the console, since the command captures exactly what is displayed on the screen at the moment.





Here are two I took today. The first one replaced my Portal wallpaper:

Heh ... that looks even cooler than it did on my humble laptop (with textures on "medium" and I think shaders on "low"), although for some reason, what's on the other side of the portal looks a bit less distinct than on my machine.

As the portal opened, I mostly remember saying "ohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuck..."

The 'F5' key.

(Alternatively, if you'd prefer TGA images to be saved in the mod's screenshots directory instead of JPEGs, try 'bind f5 screenshot' in the console...)

And now I feel like an idiot. Which, to be honest, doesn't feel much different from usual.

Edit: Now I realise that the question I should really be asking is how to remove the HUD and whatnot. I'm sure it's a very noobish question but frankly, I am a noob

Thanks very much for that, I'll post my screens when I've done them

Edit:

Here they are. I know 14 is a lot, but it's been cut back from 31. I basically just hammered the screenshot key whenever I thought "Oooh pretty". Which is a lot in MINERVA

Beyond the door

Don't mess with us

Power from below

Laser pointing in the room of the giant washing machine

Control booth from side

Or maybe it's a shark?

Folding time and space

Command centre

Not something you want to see running towards you

A bridge

Power core

Receiver

We want YOU for the Combine Empire!

It's just a very photogenic room

[edit: typo]

Wow... This mod is absolutely beautiful. A work of art. I never really got to completely appreciate it since my graphics card isn't as good. *is floored*
