    hm, one downside to a "forced" use of this could be that it looks really stuffed and busy for long text

    Ye maybe we can have a bit more 'default' font because people might have a hard time reading such nice written fonts

    maybe if you used that in 32x it would look better, but it's too messy and hurts to read honestly

    Yeah I agree, does look cool for signs and stuff, but not to read the minecraft chat in all the time.

    I vote no, it's not practical, while, especially with new plugins with TUI's (Text User Interfaces) it's very important that written information can be delivered as clearly as possible. Also as elvish student I just (no offense) hate fonts which use elvish letters just for the stereotypical elvish touch. Imo it would make MCME as a whole look less authentic.

    Well... thats exactly why I made a rp for it, so everybody who wants to use it, can do so in an easy way now. But nobody has to!

    Also i didnt plan on startig a big discussion with arguments and stuff, just wanted to help ppl out (and maybe get a yes or no).

    Yeah with the pack it remains userchoice as you can just enable it and combine it with all the other packs. But to make everyone use it by default... Personally I already dislike the default pixelated Minecraft font (but found no real way to replace it with something else without installing a mod) because it's not so clear to read, especially j and l characters.
