I’ve never been a fan of the SE font so I thought I’d have a go at swapping it with the Ultima VI font.

I think the results are much better. I’ve attached the patched font file. Just put it into your savage directory and experience the refreshing U6 font experience.

You can download the modified SYSTEM.LZC file from this shiny new project entry on the Savage Empire subdomain; the patch does not require Nuvie, and will work with vanilla versions of Savage Empire. (The screenshot above was taken from within DOSBox.)

I have to admit: this does make Savage Empire look just that much better, and it also makes the text of the game significantly more legible. The stylized Savage Empire font was neat, thematically, but it was always a bit hard on the eyes.
