I think the fonts are hard coded. CCP payed a big chunk of money to be able to use this font, not realizing at the time how bad it actually was.
Though I dearly support a new and better font, if only one that distinguishes between zero's o's b' 8's etc.I won't see it happen soon™.

as long as the difference between characters is obvious.

Not being able to tell difference between characters is quite annoying.

To be 100% honest, the font readability is fine. The font itself looks alright to me, I have no problems with it.

Also, this current font is without a doubt the cutest for :D. :3 and o/

Now, onto the dirt:

The font needs to have some of its characters fixed. Like in the OP, there are quite a few characters that are impossible to differentiate, and it's a pain. Fix those letters first, then go from there.

Please post in my thread regarding the original Warp Drive Active font.

The Eve font is symptomatic of the lack of usability consulting.

Some experts in the field of UI design, accessibility and usability should be on the dev team.

Please do this, I have been annoyed by this for quite some time playing at max resolution but having to squint or move closer to the monitor in order to make sure I read something correctly. I recently read a thread that suggested a way to fix the font size, went to change it thinking I had been unnecessarily penalizing myself all along, only to discover that I already had it set to the largest setting >.<

If they are really dead-set on using said font, at least let us make it larger :(

Use Futura or Fixedsys Excelsior

The former would look awesome and the latter would look horrible UI wise, but is the most readable font that we have for computers.

Perhaps allow us to pick our own font source for the chat (not the general UI).

And for gods sake, don't even think about using Arial or ANY of those fonts, they are all horrible.

I want a font that I can read! Make it bloody larger. LARGER!

I have to click a few times on the chat window for that to be readable - but at least that is fixable! Arial 10 is pushing it a little regarding readability. With LCD display, you want to be running at native for best text contrast. But that's bloody 1920x1080 making the text tiny - even on a 32"!!. Or 1280x1024 on a 19" is insanity!

I want Arial 10, Arial 12, Arial 14 and Arial 16 selectable for interface. Heck, all of UI.

The original post's problem is also caused by font being too darn small.

There would also be less confusion in 0.0 regarding gates if all the names were lower case. You know,

I,1 O,0 5,S 6,G 8,B
i,1 o,0 5,s 6,g 8,b

But for that to be readable, selectable font size is vitally important.

If some developer doesn't want to allow changeable font size, his coding editor needs to be changed to white on black with point 8 font immediately!! Twisted Evil

PS. The website has a tiny font too, but at least one can change that with a modern browser Very Happy

Try 1680x1050 on a 20" although iv'e gotten used to it.

I would join large screen camp and vote for an increase of font. I have got 120-140dpi notebook 17" screen. native res is 1920x1200. I must play 1024x768, otherwise I would go blind soon.

I have contacted guys through petition, but been told to go in dev forum.

I hope more people join this petition and developers will do anything with that. Time passes by and everybody has got cheap 19" + LCD. It will not last long and there will be standart 22" + screens.

Basically, this game is unplayable @ resolution higher than 1280x1024 (12 size wide font and large screen).

Yes, please, more font size choice. We get choice of 10,
12 and..... squeeze a 14 in there!

The Eve font may have been ok back in the days of 15" CRTs at 800x600 resolution but on today's wide format HD displays it's just painful. PLEASE do something to make the UI legible on modern LCD displays!

Agreed, this need to happen, or at least be an option.

Case in point - trying to goof around with corp mates, and typing in CAPS, I've noticed that the letters tend to ... uh... lean into each other.

Yeah, the font truly sucks. I run 1920 x 1280 or somesuch and the UI fonts are seriously too damn small. can it really be that hard??

I would have enough fixing the number "0" (with a dot or a slash inside) but agree.

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