Any way to enlarge the UI?
Here is a screen shot of the texts I see in game:

Why are the texts so small? They literally do not have enough pixels to resolve the shape of the letters. The inventory UI is also tiny, with every item the size of a mouse cursor, actually I think they might be even smaller.

Anyway, I found some instructions to make the texts bigger, but since some of the UI elements are hardcoded (so it seems), the texts sometimes cut off each other.

Is there a way to make the UI bigger? I'm running on 720p resolution. Higher resolution does nothing. Checking "scale UI" does nothing. Really trying to like this game, but what is up with those UI design?

In the words of the great Zoolander: "WHAT IS THIS? AN UI FOR ANTS?!"

Yeah I've alredy tried that (it didn't work too well). Right now the texts aren't that big a deal. I'm talking about the UI itself. I changed the text size by modifying the xml inside the pak files.

Have you tried UI Scaling?

Read my original post. Changing resolution does nothing. Checking UI scaling does nothing.

Unless you have the tech to hardcode the game, and graphics then you are going to be out of luck.

I am actually looking through the xml files. Still experimenting. I was hoping someone else had already done the hard work for me.

Alright, not that anyone cares, but I've done some tweaking of the xml files. Swapping the font and increasing their sizes gives me this:

As you can see, the texts are now legible. Due to the restrictive menus, sometimes the texts cram together (see the options under advanced settings):

This means I had to modify individual menu designs to pull them apart:

While the actual modifications don't take a lot of time, without any coding reference it's difficult to figure out exactly what every line does (especially since all the comments are in German)...

Oh well, at least the texts are readable.

Nicely done. Glad you got it fixed up.
Also why is your logo on the last screenshots you did, "ice and blood" with sunglasses etc?

I installed a community mod that fixes some problems with the gold edition. It also changes the UI elements from pale blue to dark grey, which looks much better.
