Does the size of the font on the airspeed indicator need to be increased in size or clarity?

ASI font poll (closed)

I have posted here that I believe the airspeed indicator font is a problem, and submitted a work ticket to that effect. I see today the ticket was closed without comment. I had waited for a couple of patches, but 2.0.2 has now come and gone, and it is unchanged. I see on other fora that others think the same (see my other thread for some quotations viewtopic.php?f=39&t=17665 ). What do you think of the airspeed indicator font size?

Dan, changing gauge font size is actually quite easy. You can do it yourself, gauge faces are just bitmaps that you can edit yourself to your liking, even create entirely new ones. You don't have to wait for any update from developers.

JBr - news to me - I guess I will have to get an image modification package, learn to use it, and get to work. I am something of a techno-bozo.

I tried using MS Paint 3D - painful since I'm a Mac guy - and wish I had better font selection. However, I am a Powerpoint Ranger and muddled through. I attach a before/after picture of the Std Cirrus. I used Gadugi 36 pt for 20 40 60 80 kts (wish I had 34 and 32 available), 28 pt for 100, 120, 140, and 26 pt for 160. I'm not an artist but now I can read the numbers. If people want it I can post it here (though I will work to find something with better point choices in the meantime).

I'm looking forward to goodies for V2 on condor-club. The inside of the cockpit needs a bunch of new gauges.

I'm also looking for the patch when the dev teams renders the PDA properly so circles are circular.

(I love V2, but still feel like all the gains made in the visuals outside the cockpit are offset by visual defects inside the cockpit, and a "highly sub-optimal" selection of new gliders. If we just had all the V1 gliders, rendered the same way, I would switch 100% to V2 in a heartbeat)
