This may not be the exact translation of this imagine but I think it's something around this.

The option to resize the brush that instead of making the brush bigger using the current settings, actually increases the brushes radius and density.  So as to make a one size fits all brush for different resolutions.  Sounds like it could be done but i'd probably be better as an option instead of the normal resize.
A hundred people can assail me with rocks until I take my last breath. I will have died but at least I'll be known for something.

I see your issue. But if you work at a higher resolution (and you look at the scaled-down image) then we also need to scale the brush (in order to get the same on-screen radius).

If we did scale the number of dabs then, someone will surely complain that the same brush stroke looks much too fine-grained at higher resolution. It's impossible to do it right for both cases.

But I agree that at least the brush designer should have the choice.

Hm. Another solution would be to have a different dab shape. Instead of a circle, we could stamp a fractal pattern with infinite amount of detail. Then it would not always look like circles when enlarged.
