Please. I'm probably not alone here. It is now nearing the end of 2017. A ridiculously large amount of people have embraced 4k. It is the natural evolution of technology. MWO is behind the curve. The lack of a properly scaled UI at 4k resolution has seriously decreased my playing time. It is just too frustrating to have to sit 16" away from my monitor to talk in chat or work in the mechlab or skill trees. The game engine supports it. It would probably double the time I spend playing this game. Look up the rate of adoption for 4k. It's multiple times higher than the rate of adoption was for HD. Gamers are also almost always early adopters. I would wager that probably 25-35% of this game's playerbase owns at least one UHD/4k capable monitor or tv. Ill include a poll here for giggles-

I run 70-80 fps depending on the map. i7-7700k at 5.0 GHz and a gtx 1080ti with everything maxxed out and fxaa. Can't do it with msaa, but its damn playable for those of us with the hardware.

That feel with a 27" 4k Monitor, game supports 4k, but the GUI doesn't scale.

in addition it would be nice to be able to increase the font size or UI scale while working in the mechlab.

Thumbs down the 4K vote, plus three for the font changer/size, 4K would be nice but can the engine hold its **** together while scaled up like that?

FYI: Blurgle postet in the Steam forums a solution for the 4k GUI problem
http://steamcommunit...82338942611246/
tldr: set your windows scaling to 100%

Oh, and toms hardware did a "Can it run Crysis ?" GPU check 10 years after release of the first Crysis.
tldr: Crysis doesn't use more than "one and a half" CPU core and you want a "5 GHZ CPU" and a 1080ti to run it in 4k Posted Image

I would prefer a couple of new maps than working on 4k.

this is like the most uneducated response i seen in years... can the engine run the game at 4k? it can, flawlessly, a lot of us are playing at 4k for a while now and it is not your place to worry about it even more down vote... what are you even down voting, do you know? the ui doesnt scale after 1080p which is kinda bad, at 4k it is so tiny its stupid... the new BATTLETECH game has it right, their mechlab is a pleasure to work with in 4k and i think MWO should follow... it really isnt a big request development vise and it will not hurt anyone, change anything, create disbalance for you to down vote it...

and it shows how much you know thinking that ui scaling will impact the game engine to the point of "can the engine hold its **** together while scaled up like that?"... no, the ui scaling will not impact the engine one god damn lil bit but without knowing one bit about the subject you feel entitled to down vote...

jesus, ppl are ******

My vote: No.

Because I answered the question posed in the poll of "do you care", and no... I don't care about it. It's going to be a very long time before I care about 4k in a game. I'll care about it about the same time they come out with a 4k@120Hz screen with <2MS response time and HDR for under $300.

I can think of hundreds of fixes and feature additions that serve the major population of players vastly better than catering to the hardware elitists already having a better experience than the rest. "Booo, I play this game on a multi thousand dollar high end pc with a high end graphics card on a display that half the player base can't afford, but I'm upset that the text is hard to read from my couch."

Right after they re-texture HPG to not look like a mile of grey plaid, fix ATMs and HGs, cut that stupid brush guard off the phoenix locust, line that one out of place ramp up with the ground in mining collective, color code chassis perks, redo the launch mechanics for solaris, and on and on; priorities.

4K?

I'm fine with 2K, due to more FPS :D

Anyway HiDPI scaling would be nice ;)

The front end UI at 1440p is way too small.

More like sub 27" 4K monitors.. top of their line.. (chuckles)

But even that, from reading up on the issues PGI had with Cryengine's Scaleform, any changes would not be "scalable" but they would have to have a preset UI. The issue one would run into then is for what resolutions, ie what happens with those running triple ultrawide monitors, etc.

Yeah, those frakkes with enough money to buy those riggs. Damn them, don't care if they are also the same people spending 400$ a year on MWO... Why should you care?

I did it with a 6-core AMD processor and an RX 480. MechLab runs fine, and the game itself did too. Was a hell of a time trying to change it back though.
