And now an important message from Jester's evil twin, Garth. The opinions of Garth are not the opinions of Jester (unless they are).
It's been tempting today to write a book about this, but I'm just going to cover it briefly, then move on. I'll just go with the opinion of Aypse, who writes:
Jesus...all the problems with Eve and this is what they spend their time on. Why use the wheel when you can just reinvent it in the shape of an octagon? I facepalmed so hard I broke by nose.
For Heaven's sake, CCP, will you please... please... please... get over your case of Not Invented Here disease? Please? For me? Pretty please? With sugar on top?
Computer font design and presentation has literally been around since the days of the Xerox PARC. We know how to do this. I'm not an expert on it, to be sure, but this most recent devblog is about a change that most of us are used to doing with two mouse clicks in Microsoft Word. Most sane game developers just license a good-looking font, then get on with their core business of game design.
Yes, the font is very nice looking. But it doesn't require the spasms of religious ecstasy that CCP seems to be looking for from us.
I'll spasm later, OK CCP? How would that be?
The preceding has been an important message from Jester's evil twin, Garth. The management apologizes to any and all whom Garth may have offended. Jester really thinks the last two CCP devblogs have been very positive changes in the development of EVE Online. He really does.
