Add an "export to timelapse" feature when replaying game saves

Post by sodacode » Mon Aug 12, 2019 5:16 pm

TL;DR
Add the ability to export replays to a video or series of images that can be compiled into a timelapse video into the vanilla game.
Why
There is a mod solution for this, but the modding api is not suitable for this as mods are built to be immutable, and you cannot configure screenshot position, zoom, resolution, frame-rate, etc.. in retrospective. Only at the end of the game do you know how big your factory will get. So it'd be nice to add this to the vanilla game.
What
Just add a configurable "record" feature in the replay feature that will export screenshots of either a custom set size, or the final factory size, that will periodically take daytime screenshots every X number of ticks.
