Leves [Dec. 9th, 2010|10:27 am]
brandson
I was thinking the other day why am I still playing FFXIV. I am at physical 40 and have a couple of jobs over r20 now and leveling them is still extremely lacking in fun and I hear it gets much worse over r30. So I figure once I get all my crafts and harvesting jobs to r20, I'd have nothing left to do and quit. Upon realizing that, I decided to save myself some trouble and stop playing now.

This and only this is what's needed to keep me playing:
(1) unlimited battlecraft, fieldcraft, and local leves with NO reset timer, instead of a 36 hours reset timer;
(2) permanent guardian's favour on all leves; and
(3) either 0 anima cost to cities and favoured destinations or chocobos for fast travel to leve camps.

Gil and item rewards from leves can be on a 36 hour cooldown. I don't care about those, but being able to efficiently level exclusively on leves is the only thing that could save this game.

Its rather unfortunate that the real core of the games content(leves) can only be accessed everyday and a half. I don't feel and motivation to play when leves or favor are down. If story and class quests weren't level locked and so few and far between I would play alot more.
Maybe after Dec update if theres more to do outside of leves hopefully~ Been thinking that it might be better to wait for a few updates or an expansion to jump back in so theres actually a variety of content to enjoy.

First of all, I would like to apologize for our inability to fully satisfy our users with the initial release of FINAL FANTASY XIV. I take full responsibility for the game's current situation, and have therefore made the decision to step down from my role as producer. A number of concerns that have been voiced by users, such as the design of the user interface, availability of tutorials and game content, and battle system functionality, represent key issues that must be addressed. While improvements are already well underway in many areas, we were unfortunately not able to incorporate player feedback as quickly as we would have liked. We are aware, however, that in many cases, addressing these issues will call for a reworking of game elements. As these changes are our first priority, they will be commanding our full attention and efforts. It is to that end that we have put a new organizational structure into place for the development team. Under this new system, FINAL FANTASY XIV will see changes and additions in line with the desires and expectations of players. Though no longer producer, I will be continuing to support the development team in other capacities, and personally hope that you will continue your adventures in the realm of Eorzea.

It's too bad that it's come to that. Hiromichi Tanaka was responsible for some of my favourite games ever (Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3). I just wish he could remember what made those games so much fun and infuse FFXIV with a little of it.

Your font you use on your GUI

Hey I'm sorry for contacting you using this method. But I was wondering if I could use your font for ff14(personal Use) since in 14 you can use your custom font now. All fonts I have look big/small unreadable and just wack. I figure your font might look nicer and work. Pleas send me your responce to s1l3ncer at g mail dot com.

Thanks in advance

Re: Your font you use on your GUI

Sure, but the font is just Trebuchet MS with a lot of tweaking in photoshop to get each character to fit into the spaces allocated for the original FFXI font without looking weird. My modified version isn't really in a font format, it's just an image file. I tried using the original Trebuchet MS font in FFXIV but it comes out really small. Unless you can increased the font size in the latest patch, I think the default FFXIV font is better.
