Yeah, looking at the tiny fonts for extended periods of time gives me a headache.

I'm in for a +1. I run the UI with the 13pt font and expanded text and that helps, but not enough to make keep me from having to constantly lean in the read boxes.

The UI text needs an absolute overhaul, and it has for a long time.

+1 for stopping eye strain.

I can't tell you how many times I've wished the font was more adjustable. Well, I COULD tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. Well, I wouldn't HAVE to kill you, but I gave up on logic years ago, and am now pretty deep into the reality I have chosen.

Anyway, please do make the necessary changes.

I have special double thickness glasses made especially for this game. That and I press my nose against my screen.

We're on day 16 and still no response from CCP on this issue. Please add your own +1 to this thread to keep it bumped.

i sign this with full support. i have been playing this game squinting to read the microscopic text for years. all ccp wants to do is add stuff for miners and mission runners, not for the overall population of eve. or to even improve their product. they are comfortable with their status quo.

Bigger fonts would be a start but seriously the UI is awful and could use a complete overhaul.

Come on CCP either you are or you are not working on this. Just a simple answer is all we are looking for. Yes or no.

(I am not sure demands are the best method - unsub or be polite IMO - but I understand the frustration and strongly support the feature. )

For those late to the party, better fonts have been desired for ages. Although the need is greater as 24", 27" and 30" wide screen monitors become quite common.

UI Fonts. CCP pleased everyone by announcing they hired a Font Guy which means that improvements on that front are to be expected

Confirmed, we are working on it. It requires some tech to work. It might happen in the next expansion but it's not confirmed, but I was in a meeting were this was discussed and we would like to see it in, but it needs a bit more work. So soonV ;)

I do not know CCP's development but my guess, could be wrong, is was a typical engineering NIH thinking as to why we can do it better in house than licensing some technology.

also nice if the config would remember your windows and fullscreen hug position and sizes.

27" 2560x1440.

A software magnifier over the overview isn't really optimal.

Can we please get a word from CCP on whether or not they are working on this issue. This topic will not just go away you know. How hard can it be for someone like CPP Fallout or Navigator to look into this and respond back?

3 weeks and you can't take a hint.

Morons buying "True HD" resolution laptops so they can watch their ****ty BRips in full "quality" without thinking of the consequences. Stupid manufacturers making 22" 1920x1080 displays so they can slap another sticker on it so that Joe Public thinks it must be good.

This rip looks awesome bruv, shame I had to use text magnification to read anything in windows and lower the res in games so I can read the UI.

also posting on a thread that proves CCP's incompetence at giving simple answers to their customers. Let alone complex answers that would explain why they have not yet implemented this positive change to their game.

You could also try moving the screen closer to your face.
