Playing on 24" widescreen with 1920x1200 resolution and this is a serious issue and very annoying for me. I don't understand why CCP does nothing here. Evil or Very Mad

We all know that CCP won't add anything useful, like say a feature that (unlimited amounts of) fittings. They'd just let us beta-test it, then remove that feature and claim something like "server load", just to be followed with it being released on the NeX store.

TL;DR you will have to pay for useful updates.

Oh look another day passes and a simple reply is all we ask for regarding whether CCP is going to fix this issue. Yes or no. How hard could that be?

Changing the title to "Day XX" everyday won't garner you a quicker response.

Your tactics show impatience. Ignored.

I fully support this. The fonts have sucked since I started playing.

It's amazing that CCP is sooooo damn reluctant to fix something so trivial.

I mean, come ON... displaying and working with fonts is one of the most basic things in any modern (post-DOS) software program, game or not. Selecting different fonts, changing the size, flowing text around graphics and other UI elements... it's all been done before, tens of thousands of times. There are standardized tools and methods for working with fonts, even within 3D games.

Surely CCP, in designing EVE a few years back, didn't start completely from scratch and whip up their own custom font-rendering engine with a single hard-coded typeface??????? Because THAT is the ONLY reason I can think of as to why this problem hasn't been fixed yet!

CCP, I'm begging you, FIX this. People want to run their LCD monitors at their native resolutions for the greatest sharpness and clarity, but we can't right now because the EVE font becomes unreadable without a magnifier. If nothing else, consider this: Display resolutions are only going to continue to get higher and higher as time goes by, making the EVE font smaller and smaller. How high does the average player's monitor resolution have to become before you're going to take action? 6000x3200? 10000x5600? Give us a number!

+1 from a new player

Fonts and just the UI in general are an abomination.

(Other than that it's a great game :-p)

Well into middle age and a session on Eve kills my eyesight.

Come on CCP. We're not all 21 years old with 20/20 vision.

Give an old guy a break.

please make POSSIBILITY (in customization) to make fonts bigger. Its very easy change.

You can only ban people from forums.

the entire UI needs a massive overview, from fonts, to the overview window, the the targeting reticule on our screen that raeally needs a work over, so far CarbonUI has shown us 0

I play on a 58" 1080P HDMI plasma; I should be able to read anything from where I'm normally situated, about 9 feet from the screen. I have to get within 6 feet to read the damned per-hour extraction rates on the PI graph pane. Used to have 20/20, I think it's probably a little worse than that now, but still pretty darn good.

Can't read text except chat. Is it my fault? Am I just not meant to play this game? Can I play this game without reading?

This has been a trivial, important and requested fix for years as far as I know. CCP are just terrible in general and focused on things other than Eve atm.

A font in which you could tell ROIR-Y from R0IR-Y would also be rather nice.

People have been asking for this since 2003... it's clearly not a priority Neutral

Playing at 1920*1080, and after ~6 hours of market diving I barely can see anything :(

CCP please...can we get someone there to verify with a simple yes or no answer if they are working on this issue?

Day 12 of this post and still, CCP, no reply or response as to when we might get this issue addressed? This is an extremely important issue. The fonts of the UI are too damn small and it is ruining the enjoyment of this game. Please fix this.

It was pretty amusing in help channel the other day. The ISD person was trying to justify why we have to have small fonts.

This would have to be one of the features I want most. Readable fonts at high resolutions.

We *need* to be able to change font size. This is 2011, who runs EVE at low resolutions these days? EVE looks terrible on an LCD screen running at lower than native resolutions, and EVE is almost unreadable at 1920x1080 (most 22 inch monitors native resolution) unless your face is 20cm from the screen.

PLEASE make EVE a modern game!

We're on day 13 and still no response from CCP. Makes you wonder if CCP even gives a damn about keeping "in touch" with their player base don't it?

Makes some people wonder. I specifically do not want them to answer for the following reasons.

1. Nothing they say will be universally accepted unless the answer is "Getting fixed at downtime". Its not getting fixed at downtime so I don't want them to say that.

2. They changed it once, they will change it again.

3. No one that's complaining thanked them when they changed it from 12 to 13. It might not have fixed the problem for you but it fixed it for many. Being an ingrate prick has its downsides.

YES! please give us the Ability to Change UI fonts!

Please. I'm old and can not see very well. YARRRR!!
