Why is the UI just getting bigger and bigger...?

Do you like these UI changes?

  3. Meh, kinda. I think we should be able to toggle between old/new & change menu size/transparency.

    My setup is just fine.

    I prefer to toggle and customize my UI though.
    We're already given features to do so, look at the ESC menu. We can use the older layout or the new one. I think it's fair to give the same for the remaining of the UI because it's unattractive to some people. Judging from all the threads and feedback it is for a lot of people.

    Without options, and by that I mean high quality multiple options, not a blurry resize -- the UI never will be fine for everyone: we all have different monitor quality in different lighting conditions and different screen resolutions are used.
    At least small, medium and large UI options are needed.
    Also font size adjustment option if possible.
    Rest would be luxury, like UI color options and transparency, but at least allow the basics, if you want one UI for both PC and consoles to work properly.

    PA needs to adjust this crap asap!

    Those new scalings are very bad. My server selection menu can't even fit into screen anymore since 3 weeks.

    Because the Devs keep making all UI elements bigger, like you would see on consoles, and have very limited options to adjust the UI, like on consoles.

    You actually have lower Y-res than what I play on and it doesnt fit on my screen. The UI scale option is worthless for me though because it just makes the text hard to read rather than simply rescale the windows.

    The solution at all your UI trouble...

    If you have trouble to read. Change font is not illegal.

    1. In your main game folder (the folder that contains "bin", "bin64", etc.), create a new folder and name it prestringtable.

    2. In prestringtable, create a new folder and name it font.

    3. Rename the .ttf file of the font you want to use to pearl.ttf and place it in the font folder.

    4. Start/restart your client!
    Source

    This font work well. Here (Edit: or https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Roboto ( Source)
    Exemple of wat is look like

    Being able to adjust the size should be a standard option and not being able to is really weird, surely it can't be hard for the devs to do that.

    On 1080p? I guess you never tried scaling your UI

    Putting on anything other than the default will make your UI text unreadable.

    That does look pretty nice. Think I'm gonna try it out on my backup/HTPC cuz my TV doesnt have a very sharp picture.

    nice tip
    you linked the italic version of the font though
    https://www.dafont.com/roboto.font

    bold looks nice even at 80-85%. nice QOL improvement. thanks.

    I dunno if this may help, but have any of you tried Esc>Settings>UI Window Optimization?
