Playing on a 4K display is awful.

Okay seriously, CCP. Time to let us scale the UI past 150%. I did a quick search and am finding threads and topics across various sites where players are looking for a way to scale past 150% because they're using a 4K display. These posts date as far back as early 2014!

Now, most responses to these posts amount to other players saying things like "150% fine, why the heck do you need to fill your screen with UI for? Deal with it. You'll live" and such. Very helpful responses.

I just got myself a new Razer Blade Stealth, and if I want to play EVE in the native resolution, the UI is terribly small even at 150%. Now, if this were a 27" screen, it might be fine. This is a 12.5" display. This means that the UI is very, very small. It's definitely not comfortable to try and use.

CCP, it's high time this was fixed. 4K screens are becoming more and more common; this problem is not going to go away.

the problem is your screen. 12.5 is not suitable for 4k, way too small.

Why the f*ck would you use a 12" screen??? We dont live in the 80s anymore. 24" is minimum for EVE.

size of the screen doesn't matter, it's if the software scales properly for the high pixel pitch, although for a 12.5 screen to scale to readable levels you'd have the ui overlapping everywhere, i have a 24" 4k moniotr and 150% scaling is still slightly too small for eve, so i don't use it, i use a 2560x1080 screen but that has issues too, namely no 21:9 fov.

these are all problems that shouldn't exist in a dedicated pc game in 2016
