The old serif font eve had? I thought it made it look so much classier, anyone know why it was changed?

Oh, you mean the font that was used for the system names and things?

I don't know if I miss it really. What we have now is fine, although I think it probably still needs to make the difference between 0 and O a little more clear.

Yes, also for the 'Warp Drive Active' text, as per Linkage

Please, dont let this get that close to being locked again (for the 90 day reason). It's far too interesting.

Drat, worked for me.
I think people are aware of what I meant though, it was also used for the system names as mentioned earlier

It's also somewhat hard to see the difference between the big 'I' and the small 'l' ingameEmbarassed.

If only there was some kind of context in which the letters were used that would assist one in determining which one was intended.

The font is called Baskerville Old Face.

IIRC, the old system names and warp drive active text were rasterized. It could be that when the devs went to add new systems they couldn't find the original vector font so they replaced it.

Or it could be some other reason entirely.

I did like that font though. Sad

like a line across the zero isn't hard. Surely there's a nice font out there that does this?

And the B and the 8....
And the 9 and the 8. Running Eve at high resolutions is painful. The chat window text can be made larger, but I can't seem to find anything for the overview, for example.

Maybe I'm just blind and unable to find the option in all of the legalese-fine-print-sized text.

"But Andrea, just run the game at a low resolution!"

Then I don't have space for all of my spreadsheets and I can't pilot my ship! Sad
