If you have Factorio on steam, you can use F12 (by default) to take screenshots and that does not disable achievements.
That's not how to take tremendously zoomed out over-sampled GUI-less captures of your base centered on a particular spot rather than your character. And do so automatically at regular intervals. I had need.
Oh wow. Is there a need for that? My bad. There probably is. I can still offer several solutions to your "very specific problem". The game can't appeal to everyone at the same time.
-Use a second player on another computer. Set up a script robot that presses steam's screenshot button at fixed intervals, zoomed out.
-Set up more than 3 auto saves. Make the game save up to 50-100 different saves of your game (instead of 3) at those fixed intervals. Then, use a mod to take a screenshot of every save. (Official method!)
-Set up a timer on your computer or any smart device that warns you at fixed intervals to take a zoomed out screenshot.
-Forget about achievements, because entertaining people is more important to you than random flags on steam's server, or in your local files.
Are you done arguing?
By the way, you were clearly using mods to do stuff in the link you gave me. In the case you want to get modded achievements, there is a final solution:
-Modify the screenshot mod so that it does not need a command to be activated, and works automatically.
Do not try to justify something that is seen as cheating by the game's rules.
