Pretty straightforward, thanks to the crappy font, it is sometimes quite hard to say if some system name has an O (letter) or 0 (number), make numbers show in green or red or something like that in overview. And make it optional.

(Of course with custom fonts that would not be an issue but let's not go there.)

Or change font so O and 0 actually look different enough. I like the "old" style zeros which had that line in middle to tell the difference.

Just supporting because this needs fixing.

Simply put, the font is terrible. I've had a bit of education on typefaces, and it may look 'cool', but it ultimately has poor usability as a typeface.

What is the name of this accursed font, anyway? I think Futura would be a better choice, or one of the Gothic Sans.

I can read it, most of the time, but I must admit it probably took my brain a bit to work out how to differentiate. A better font would probably save me the trouble of correcting fellow corpmates.

How about this one: Zekton Free 3.000 - the 0s are just a bit thinner than the Os, as is proper with a font, and the 1 is clearly distinguishable from the l and I. The l and I are the only trouble-spots, from what I can tell.

The most important aspect in a font for readability is telling these pairs of characters apart: 0O 5S 2Z lI 8B

That site seems like a good repository- this thread's got me scanning through it for good 'Techno/Futuristic' fonts that actually have such readability- however, a good number of them don't even distinguish between capitals and lower-case.

oh look, its this thread again.

this thread had popped up every so often for the past 4 years or so. the best suggestion has been to use the russian client text-type.

i dont have an actual link at this moment. russians post a link to your superior eve client font-type.
