Tool for screenshotting a .dmm file?

I'm tired of having to run the game, set view range to 128 (manually setting higher values make no difference), ghost around laggily and hit F2 then stitch the resulting shots together in MS Paint. Goon has perfect, zoomable interactive maps of all their previous stations. Is there something to screenshot an entire map (in-game preferably) in /tg/ code?

Not that I’ve found. The best tool is probably going to be SpacemanDMM

Not in game, but I think this is the closest thing we got. https://affectedarc07.co.uk/TGStuff/MapGen

It was very close when it was written but hasn't totally kept up with changes (cables are the big obvious one in that screenshot)

It hadn't even occurred to me it could properly display the directionality of cables as they appear in game. I was more referring to the X, which is a landmark corpse spawner. The turret controls don't display their state either, but that's nitpicky

That's pretty impressive. I wouldn't know where to begin getting it to work, and the readme's all in Russian.
