Are you tired of CCP not fixing the fonts in this game? Well tell them here in this thread. This is 2011 and we're still playing a game from 2003 whose UI has changed very little since then and has not changed with technology. Most players today have 24" widescreen monitors with greater resolution capabilities. Back when EVE first came out many players were still using CRT's with much smaller screens and resolutions. Fonts are tiny in resolutions of 1920x1200 and greater on 24" widescreen monitors.

As it stands now we can increase fonts to size 13/expanded and that does absolutely nothing from what I can tell.

Even games like WoW have better UI customization controls built into the game and it is from 2003. Why can't CCP give us the option to increase font size in overviews, markets and such?

If you think this needs addressed by CCP please let them know and post a +1.

13 expanded does work on a handful of things, but not the things you're constantly having to read. Personally, I think CCP has a sideline selling glasses to the elderly in shopping malls.

I think playing eve online for 6 years as a trader/industrialist has probably permanently damaged my vision...

New or expanded fonts aren't really a solution, I think they really need to go in and rework the UI to accommodate a more fitting default font size. I'm not talking huge fonts, just something closer to 12 point please!

Hmn tbh i think you have a point here. Up until 2yrs ago i had near perfect eye sight, 2 yrs ago i started playing the game, about a year later i started having trouble reading text on pc screens, went ot the opticians and they told my i had a stigmatism in my right eye (stretched focus along the horizontal).

Hmn wonder if i can get an optician to testify in court .... :D

+1 for my friend who loves the IP, but refuses to play until larger fonts are available.

Very much agree. I try to play EvE on a 30" monitor I mainly use for programming and the eye strain is unbelievable when trading, numbers appear tiny.

Thank god for being able to increase the size on chat.

Yes, please fix the font, also fix the colour of text too, take the Dust website for example, dark grey on black, WTF? CCP have a habit of putting dark fonts on dark colours, not sure why either.

I was so psyched about Eve at the beginning I would play until midnight, running missions, etc. I'd go to bed and wake up at 3 A.M. with my eyes burning. They'd dry out so bad from concentrating on the monitor my eyelids would literally stick to them, and when I tried to open them, I would have difficulty, force them open, and damage my eyes.

The pain was searing, and it would take hours to subside.

My eyesight is wrecked now, and yes, fer crissakes, bigger font would be great.

No better font for you only space barbie. Buy clothes and be happy. 90 percent of devs are doing stuff for other games and you want stuff your kidding right. When you buy WoD and Dust they will have the better font your asking for. So wait and buy them. For now buy pants pay for Vampire FPS and stop asking for stuff.

They keep them small so people will buy more monocles and goggles. They make your font bigger when you wear them. Wink

Day 4 and no response yet. We need to know if CCP is going to address the issue of small fonts in the UI!

If players do not show support for this then it will never be fixed and it needs fixed. Unless you are all playing the game at 900x600 resolution you should be putting a +1 in this thread.

Let's get this fixed!

For what it's worth, I will lend my support for this.

Having to buy reading glasses for reading stuff on a 30" monitor is kind of dumb.

CCP feel that it is more important to make dress up barbie dolls and release more virtual clothing instead of working on the core problems in eve, this being a major one.

It's not surprising why many vets are leaving the game right now, (you know the ones that have witnessed no content of value being added since Apocrypha.)
