LARGER FONT SIZE FOR TOWN NAMES PLEASE!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

How has such tiny font size lasted so looooong! PLEASE increase the font size for these towns. Its hard enough to be squad leader than having to guess at the name of these towns because the names are so tiny! Im either blind as a bat.. or these names are smaller than my captain.

 

Fix suggestions:

  1. Larger Fonts for town names
  2. More pronounced objective map lines linking each town.

An easier map to read cant be asking for too much. 

Please BUMP to get this changed on the next build!

 

This is supposed to be "Mohd Zai"

Believe it or not there is a town name on that map.

This screenshot has 2 town names on the map. Can you make them out?

I’ve never had a problem with it and I’ve never heard anyone say anything about it in 3 years of playing Squad

ZXD_Lee has never had a problem with it guys.. NEVERMIND then!!! AS long as ZXD_Lee is happy dont fix it!

I think, you either misunderstood or you’re very sensitive? What I’m saying is it must be something your end, because myself or anyone I know has ever said it’s a problem! Maybe you’re on low resolution or a small monitor? Not sure, seems a bit strange so post some pics tell us your specs

Not a bad idea. Thanks for the feedback!

When the layers keep changing and new names come up, I find myself having to zoom in to read it. Would be nice to have some sort of a black outline around the name to make it POP

Or, like nametags, you could configure your own experience. Small, med or large font choices perhaps?

I noticed that the main base names have a mouseover function which pops out their name.

 

Could be repeated on the flag names

Or maybe just when you put your cursor on the flag point it would get the name of the point more bigger.

Like when you put it on a player and his name popes out

I use a 27" 4k monitor (running on 1440p), and the names are very small. I have to put my face closed to the monitor to read them.

This was not an issue for me but few months ago with one of updates I got the same problem. Even zooming in does not solve this. Now i have to use commands like "lets move to the third flag" =D + grid is broken, mouse pointer shows wrong coordinates and placing marker on map places it two blocks up and one block right of intended place.

They already did. They'll look into it, nothing confirmed. 

 

Doesn't hurt to learn the names, I don't play regularly yet still know pretty much all point names(or just glance over at the start of the round, you have the time). But yes it wouldn't hurt to have as an option, as long as it doesn't intrude on map readability. Preferably make it an option like the name tags, so people that want it can use it, and those with no problems aren't forced to have it.

Jesus man.. 768? I'm gonna say this is kinda the problem? at the least 1920x1080 is the standard nowadays.. thats a tiny monitor(I'm playing on 3440x1440)

UI/UX updates are coming that should help. =) Hoping to have some sneak peeks soon. We're going to continue to improve stuff like this, especially as maps continue to be revised/updated for new systems. (e.g., choppers)
