      Description

      The bug

      The Unicode font is very thin and unreadable.
      Examples:

      • Gui scale small.
      • Signs from 2-3 blocks distance.
      • Scaling chat lower then 60 % (gui scale normal).

      Kapos' Default Font for Everything v0.1 for 1.9.2 fixes this issue.
