Justification
Almost all other text in the game can be scaled already. I've seen other servers and mods that allow for this. Shouldn't be terribly difficult to implement (I hope)!
Motivation
Most of the UI fonts are far too small for me to read without squinting and getting eye-strain over hours long play sessions, and it also makes it much more difficult for me to stream the game because I constantly have to stop what I'm saying and lean in to read the super small text.
Proposal
As most of you already know, you can already scale the font size for the chat window, hover text, chat bubbles, and player/NPC names, etc., but what I'm asking is allow scaling for all the other UI font sizes, like the quest tracker, tool tip fonts, and so on.

Even if it's not an in-game option, even a downloadable separate file, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Yes! I would love this! My eyes hurt and i love this game! I will donate happily! I just can't play for long because the words are so tiny!

Recent acquisition of a 4k monitor laptop has brought me here to endorse this message.

Please, please, please prioritise this. I too play on a 4k monitor (43") and even with my glasses, I still squint or look close at the screen to read the small UI text.
