Re: Version 1.1.38

It is almost as if the font is rendered with different settings, especially "weak" vs "strong" hinting, or as if there is unintended font replacement happening in the background. There is definitely some OS-specific thing going on here. This change does not happen on my Linux sy...

Re: Add font selection options

After update to v1.1.38 main font changed to Lilittium, and many people didn't like the new font, especially Cyrillic version.

Re: Version 1.1.38

What about adding 2 (or more) fonts to the interface options?
Or ability to choose font from OS fonts?
And size of font?

Upd:
There are several fonts included in Core/Fonts folder, and font selection order in Locale/XX/info.json file.
Maybe add option to adjust that font styles order?

Re: Version 1.1.38

From what I understand, this change was triggered by this discussion over at crowdin: https://crowdin.com/project/factorio/discussions/195 I believe the actual font "Titillium" that Factorio shipped with previously had no support for cyrillic whatsoever, so the "old" font that y...
