Similar letters have to be fixed, size adjust would be nice too as long it doesn't screws with ui...

Five months after the original post, and this topic keeps on bouncing up. What does that tell you, CCP?

and now ATI/AMD's new EyeFinity tech is out, which means I can turn 3x 24" monitors (or 3x 22" which I have) into a 'single' monitor...I can't imagine the text at 3600x1900 or 5500x2750 or some nearly unreasonable resolution (depending on whether you leave your monitors horizontal or flip them up to vertical).

But Eve on 3 monitors as a single screen...!

Yes please! EVE is the only thing on my computer that constantly makes me lean in for a closer look.

I'd put 3 thumbs up if the doctors wouldn't have removed that extra arm when I was born!!!

This topic is of significant interest to me and I will push heavily as a CSM.

Really appreciate anything that CSMs can do to put this topic on the front burner. Eve is such a pretty game overall, the font is the single ugliest thing in it. Why-o-why canít we just have a simple, elegant, readable font? Is it really asking so much???

I read somewhere that CCP has hired a typography expert.... or "font guy".

I'd love a font something like "Twenty-One" or "Abtechia". Though it would want to support the full gamut of European alphabets, including punctuation and numbers.

Yes very much so; my gf's biggest complaint was "Ew how can you read that?"

Edit: My primary issue is not with the font itself but with sizing.

The font changed in 2006, I know because I quit playing in 2006 due in part to the font. I had a 1400x1050 screen and it was just really hard to read. I started playing again when I got a new monitor, and it's been ok. Maybe they tweaked the font a bit in the meantime, I don't know.

Anyway, the font is not that great. There are many commercial fonts that look very modern and are also easy to read.

Frutiger Next is one.

CCP do something with fonts! Its really hard to see anything in high res

1920x1200 is really painfull for eyes :/

With all the issues regarding gameplay forming a proactive and empowering community to EvE Online, this font issue - no matter how many times it has been brought up over a lengthy period of time - is perhaps the most crucial CCP is going to face in any foreseeable future.

Hell, let players tweak the font system in the SiSi client and provide you with a plethora of suggestions that you can choose from. I promise EvE a load of publicity in the acdemic and professional service design publications for such a prosumerism/produsage-oriented approach towards typology as well as visual and usability design.

Apart from not losing customers because you'd make the game better (and less hurting for the eyes), you might gain some lost customers back if you again send those 5d free game time invites to unsubscribed customers and tell them that this issue has been fixed (or at least changed with the aim of fixing it).

The font/readability issue is not one that requires work without generating revenue - in fact, I dare say it is quite the contrary.

Thank you for making this change yesterday.

The current font is nice and spacey, but I'm sure there's a spacey font out there that's also readable.

I wouldn't take away the current one, just offer people a set of different ones to choose from. Supported. Smile

Yes please. EVE is practically renowned for eyestrain. End that.
