The ArmA 3 ultra thin font - do you really like it?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am really surprised nobody mentioned the ArmA III fonts. E.g. in briefing, or the intermediate text when loading islands ("Biggest mountain of Altis is...").

I think the font is supposed to be modern: But IMO, it is not easy to read because it is too thin, almost like one pixel width..., it looks crappy and badly done, the room between letters varies too much. I'd always prefer the bolder Arma 2 font.

BI, you could do better!

Thoughts?

Well, IMO it's ok ( I'm in love with thin typographies ), but you are right about the distance between letters is way too variable.

BI could go with the thin Helvetica ( you can't almost never go wrong with the Helvetica family :p ) or the one of the London's Tube.

I like it, I wasn't sure at first, but it's a nice clean font, granted there are some words that are hard to read but overall it's a great clean font and I'm thankfull they haven't used 'Army'

Impossible to really see anything in editor especially writing in triggers

Its 99% familiarty and guess work

It would be great for a thicker text

Lol not reading cheeky

I mean to differentiate between symbols , brackets in particular are indistinguishable with current font and changing ui size brings its own problems with dialogues et al so not an option

Off screen probems , especially when defines from configs are used in rsc but more specific settings ui will be off screen lower left

Now there is a suggestion.

Second posting suggests Helvetica, which I agree with. But I also think it's probably too late. TBH with the first appearance of the Alpha we already have seen pretty much what ArmA 3 is now.
