The Shell Part I: Inferno Improved Readability Mod

A mod that improves the readability of The Shell Part 1 by swapping out the fonts, increasing backlog functionality, and fixing other various things.

The Shell Part I: Inferno Improved Readability Mod

This mod applies to all languages, English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. Here’s a list of what the mod does in detail:

  • Swaps out the thin, serifed fonts with thicker, non-serifed fonts.
  • Increases the size of the backlog from 3 blocks of text on screen to 5 blocks of text on screen.
  • Adds a thematically appropriate scrollbar to the backlog to make looking through the backlog easier.
  • Fixes a bug with the textbox and textbox icons that caused flashing when playing in fullscreen.
  • Swaps out the dialogue’s “” quotes for regular “” quotes, fixing spacing issues.
  • Rebinds “Return to Title” to Esc instead of F12, since Steam screenshots are already on F12.

Afterward

If you notice any issues, especially in either Chinese language, since I can’t test them as thoroughly, please let me know and I will fix them. Also, there are still things in the game that I would like to fix/add. No promises, but I may update this mod in the future with more fixes and features.

Special Thanks

Laureeeeeeeeeeeeeeen for all the image editing and for putting up with me asking for her to redo the egg slider icon again and again.
