[TC/AP/MODS] Bigger font for easy reading

Post by darkslimus » Sun, 11. Dec 16, 03:00

Hi pilots,

Too much time spent in space and tired to try reading the skinny font of your interface, here is my personal contribution for the safety of your eyes !

Bigger font for easy reading 1.1

What it does

All text in game are bigger, more readable
All characters are included specially greek letters for some renaming scripts or mods who use it

List of fonts

This fonts are bigger but not optimized for cockpit mods
- DejaVu Sans | Bold Condensed | 9

Cockpit mods friendly
- Liberation Mono | Bold | 9

Know issues

- Before installing or configure a script uninstall this one or you will unable to read all the instructions if line text is to long
- Some letters aren't really centered and sometimes words seems to be truncate by a space

Install instruction

browse the zip file, each font have his own folder.
Take the "F" folder in the font folder you want to use and extract it in your X3TC folder.
Same place for both TC/AP

Uninstall instruction

Just delete the folder "F" from your X3TC directory

Download link

pCloud

Good work.

Folder's name needs to be "F" (i.e. capital letter) on linux and mac (it's "f" in the archive).
Screenshots in the OP would be helpful as well.

Nice one. :thumb_up: I like DejaVu Sans a bit better than Liberation Mono.

I added your topic to the Community Script & Mod Download Library for X3: Terran Conflict and X3:AP into the Mods -> Others section, so that it doesn't get lost.
