4k UI elements too small to read.

James Powell shared this bug 4 years ago
Reported – Awaiting fix

I play on a 4k TV and sit across the room on the couch to play. In 4k resolution, any ore, antenna, or GPS signals that are shown in the HUD do not scale properly making them extremely difficult to read at any distance that isn't directly in front of the screen.

I've attached a screen shot to show what I mean.

Same, the small text makes the game almost unplayable for me.. hate having to strain my eyes so much to read text that you should be allowed to scale

Hello, Keen Team, please add a feature to control the HUD Text size, I am barely able to read GPS or Antenna IDs on screen - having a 4k screeen, a meter away. Also, I use a filter (f.lux) that reduces blue exposure to my eyes at night - what makes the text harder to read. Havingan option to display text in the HUD in red or green would help a lot.

I have the same issue, I cant read any of the GUI text easily from 1 meter away from a 49" display! To read any of that I need to get myself a lot closer to my display, needing to bend over to read some text pretty often puts me in a serious disadvantage in combat situations and does not help in my back pain. Honestly I think this should have been a feature ages ago. :/

I thought I saw a streamer once that had a mod or something that increased signal text size in 4k, but now I can't find it. So adding my voice including another screenshot of the tiny signal text size.

Hello!

I appreciate this thread is quite old. Thank you for bringing this to light again and I'm sorry this is causing an issue for you all. I have now reported this internally so will be awaiting a fix. Thank you very much for the information and screenshots and I hope you can enjoy 4K a little easier in the future :)

Kind Regards

So.. 20 months later from Laura K's reply. Still no fix. Great developer.

If they really cant bother to fix even small nuisances which are a big thing for quality of life dont expect anything bigger to be fixed. What about solar panels? They had a nice working LOS model and they screwed that up completely in a patch, havent even bothered rolling it back. Jesus.
