I wonder why other devs aren't updating there code and such as often as EVE. It's over 8 years old now, and is still cutting edge.

Indeed. CCP is a true model of efficiency as far as MMO developers go. The fact that they have so many people working on the game concurrently and do so with funding exclusively provided by a single monthly subscription is really somethin' else.

That being said, quite a few will argue that their investment in future projects (Incarna, Dust 514, World of Darkness) is a bad sign of split attention, money-chasing, and possibly less support for EVE in the future. Personally, I have no issues with how CCP has been handling themselves thus far.

Yes. And yet if you listen to the lamenting wails of many members of the community, you'd think they were suffering from severe neglect.

I think the great thing they've done with EVE is that the community is the majority of the content. other games like wow need constant content updates or people leave. The players in eve for the most part are the game so they can just focus on new features over something shiny every month.

@Raikulxox I dunno, while I'm sure they are cool in general, they have yet to actually put a readable font in the game that looks even remotely good at higher resolutions. I've tried three times now to get interested in this game, and the painful-ass font just kills it every time.

From what I'm seeing on the forums (and I tend to check every update), it looks like it MIGHT be improved soon. Maybe? I'm not sure.

@Khai mann He is right mate, the font is totally unreadable on high resolutions and very frustrating so he could be telling the truth. I'm not sure what they were thinking when they decided to use it, maybe they wanted to give a darker(?) atmosphere to the game but I have problems especially since you have so many things on your screen.

I assume you did make the font bigger/extended in the Options panel? I know its not much bigger but it helps a lot, at least for me.

@paterah HA! And I thought it was just me. No word of a lie, once I got my hi-res display I couldn't see a thing in Eve, so I went and got glasses just for the computer. Best thing I have done all year. You won't regret it.

@Khai mann I *love* Eve. The font is horrible though. It isn't just "ugly"..it is hard as hell to read and actually makes my eyes water.

The UI scale is locked and just gets harder and harder to read the higher resolution you play at.

In this case, complaining about the font..or not playing because of it is 100% justified.
