May I ask whether anyone has tried playing Simutrans in 4k? I recall reading Prissi having written that dpi scaling would probably need to be implemented to make this work well (or else things would look too small and performance would be poor). If any of the Standard developers are reading this, are there any immediate plans to implenent dpi scaling?
I ask because I am considering upgrading my main monitor, an Eizo FlexScan S2000 from 2007, which is a 20.1" 1600x1200 monitor whose resolution is now somewhat poor in comparison with my smartphone and tablet (both circa 1440p), and the colour rendition is not as good as modern IPS panels. 4k seems to be the major standard: it can deal with 1080p content with multiple scaling to prevent scaling loss of sharpness (and the same will be so with 8k content if and when that ever becomes mainstream), it has significantly higher resolution than my nearly decade old system (which is a worthwhile thing for my other hobby of photography, where I am really not getting all that I might out of my camera's 16mp sensor with what is effectively a 2mp monitor) and a newer monitor generally will allow me to take advantage of all the improvements in monitor technology from the past decade or so. I had thought of having two new monitors, one of 4k the other of a lower resolution, but Windows does not cope well with having different dpi scaling on different monitors.
