Eve Font is Almost TherePosted: 2011-10-04 Filed under: eveonline, screenshot | Tags: flipping tables, font, kerning, tracking, ui 1 Comment
Glorious, stupendous! There is a new font in the development pipeline. Grey Stormshadow has a excellent post with a screenshot summary of the current issues.
- Kerning and Tracking! Take a look at how the ‘La’ for Large merge into one character.
- Increase visibility of commas and periods
- Further differentiate ‘Q’ and ‘O’ characters
- Reduce overall height
- (Personal preference) Use a horizontal bar in the the zero character and not a diagonal one. I’m finding that looking at 100,000 to be very distracting when you have multiple rows of zeros.
I personally think I would have been more impressed if they simply used their already licensed version of Arial… and spent that Dev. time on the rest of the UI.
