Simple text in VR

Finally getting around to the Robo Recall Modkit and instantly I see a pet peeve of mine, the ammo text on guns

Looks fine, right? Let’s see it on a light background

Of course, we lose readability. Here’s my seemingly simple solution:

Stroke and a black background? Well, sorta, if you take a closer look you can see there’s depth and layers, and a tinted glass background to mute in every situation.

Layers stacked in Z-space looks great in VR as you get that Parallax effect. I initially wanted to limit the angle of the text so it was always facing the camera but it wasn’t even necessary, the layers make it readable at almost any angle.
