    Hey guys, what do you think about this new UI font?

    https://puu.sh/D0yd6/04f358c402.png

    I personally find it hard to read, but maybe it’s just me becoming blind. A few people once mentioned that the current default font is just ‘awful’ apparently so I’ve been looking into using a new one.

    For reference, this is the old one: https://puu.sh/D0yjq/03dab63134.png

    I see nothing wrong with the old one. In fact, it’s really clear and visible. But at the same time, I don’t have that artist touch and these things don’t matter at all for me while it does for some people.

    Edit: Don’t mind Amanda’s lack of hair in the pics hahahahah. I just turn it and usually the whole model off for dev purposes.

    lol 1980 digital font. Reminds me of the first LED display watches. +1 nostalgia, but it is a little tough to read. especially with all caps.

    Maybe fast forward a few years and go for an 8-bit Duke Nukem look.

    The old font is a basic font. Neither awesome or awful. Maybe they meant it was just plain and they wanted something fancy. The good thing about the basic font is it is easy to read.

    I wasn’t even alive back then, so I can’t relate haha. But I think I’ll go with a mix of 2 fonts. Digital font for titles, buttons and other texts with one or two words in them and with AgencyFB-Bold (instead of the old Arial) in places where there’s lot of text, like in tooltips.

    I think that looks cool to be honest.

    Haha you’ll be able to make your character bald with the character package

    Edit: Actually, just AgencyFB, not AgencyFB-Bold for normal text.

    Right on. That backlighting effect is cool.
