Hi everyone.

I would like to suggest to CCP that there would be option to increase font size of UI.
The chat is fine and has the option already but market, overview, selected ship (in space when you click someone/something), etc have no such option.

This causes the following for me, i have 40" samsung full hd TV and i cant play eve with it in proper resolution because the text is so small its unreadable.

Now there might be "home made" solution to this and i hope thats the case but incase theres no such thing how hard it would be for CCP to actually implement the option to change the font size without it messing up the UI ?

The option to increase UI font sizes already exists. As I recall it's on the same tab of the options window as the theme/colours and other UI options.

Im at work so i cant double check but iirc the font changes are only for the r-click slider "tab" font size, not the overview etc.

It seems theres no solution to this problem so CCP if you deem this important enough it would seriously be cool thing to be able to play with bigger screens.

Or even smaller screens... the problem is not how big the screen is, but the higher pixel density of your particular screen. This can be worsened by larger screens because you often don't sit with your face 20 inches away from the screen, but further back! Which can make the pixels look even smaller! This problem will only get worse and worse over time as screens get better and better.... Just look at the iPhone 4 "retina display" for an example of REALLY small pixels to begin with!

The moral of the story is: at least for foreseeable future in the next few years until ccp has no choice but to fix this, don't get too good of a screen (that has too high of a pixel density) or you will not be able to play eve very well!

I run a 25" monitor at about the same resolution and it is an issue for me as well. I love the extra space for chat windows, dscan, extra overview columns that the higher resolution affords me but the font size is a bit of a strain.

By the way, this suggestion is in a hundred other threads. Seems like something CCP should pay attention to.

New font was promised at fanfest but when ????
Best guess would be somewhere alongside launch of new turrets etc.
And yes it includes fancy new technologies so 0 does not look like o and l does not look like 1 :S
My mind boggles in extacy...

They still look fairly similar though, it's still a quite narrow type face (don't like it much).
