Super legible pixel font with a breathtaking character set (893 glyphs!), that includes Kopt and Devanagari among others. All monospaced. 10/10
Supreme achievement. Color me impressed.
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “7x12PixelMono” is now a Top Pick.
How many years did it take you to make this?! I'm making a pixel font myself, but it isn't nearly as simple and vast as yours.
Boy, I just realised how I would classify this font: Aesthetically pleasing. Each letter is handsomely constructed, especially the 4, which I thought was just a major win.
Oh, and by the way, who here had the hubris to rate this FontStruction a 1?! D4mn you! D4mn you to h3||
@xenophilus: not many. I see it was created 17th October 2009, and the last edit was 20th May 2010. So that makes 7 months. The beauty of pixel fonts is that you can make a lot of characters very quickly.
I'm going to revisit it now, and maybe make a bold and/or an italic version(s).
Not the most extensive anymore, but it's still very impressive.
Here's a preview of the bold/italic member of the family:
Now it's time to do all of those unicode glyphs in FS Beta. That should take a while!
@Quimplef: Excactly! I've already done IPA, and am playing around with Ethiopic and Cherookee. But yes, it's a never-ending story.
Amazing font there. How you even managed to get the characters so pretty i don't even know. so very pretty... infinity^infinity/10
This font is taking inhuman proportions! The pharaohs had thousands of slaves to achieve their pyramids; maybe their blood floods in your veins, to build this all alone.
Wow, really impressed with the completeness of this font and quite elegant for a pixel font too! 10/10
@ne: Thank you for the encouraging words! Sometimes, I myself can barely bellieve that I have done this. Mostly, I work on it as a result of procrastination, so it is a bit scary to think of all the things I don't get done.
@four: Thanks! That's excactly my aim.
I recently passed the 4000 character mark! New additions include: Polytonic Greek, Mathematical operators, Phonetic extentions, Myanmar, Letterlike symbols and Miscellaneous symbols (Dingbats).
Please Give us your benediction Oh SemiGod Cmunk, you who can draw 1000 new superb glyphs on one day, when we have difficulties to make 10 ! Excellent job Christian and still beautiful at pixel size from the very first to the last one! If you decide to push this far the rest of the family(italic, etc.), and if it is still by procrastination, i'm afraid we'll have to wait a long time to see your still unpublished surely beautiful concepts you procrastinate with !
Congratulations on passing the 5000 mark!
Over 5500 characters, absolutely mind-boggling.
WOW 5571 glyphs? Amazing! How long does it took to open your fontstruction? :P Other from that, you're the master! 10/10
Dude, you are beast!!!
This has to be not only the most comprehensive family on FS ... but possibly in the history of typography! 5571/5571
Are you secretly trying to beat me ;) LOL at least you have real characters instead of fillers everywhere :P
Thank you all! I am glad this font has regained your interest.
@cablecomputer: About the load-time it's around 3 minutes. The weird thing is that it takes significantly longer if I minimize the window while it loads...
Now, I've been putting this off for a bit, because it will require reworking of a lot of characters, but here goes: I don't like the shape of some of the most basic characters, but if i redesign them, I'd have to change them in all of the diacritical forms. I'll upload a picture with some of my thoughts.
I have now changed the g, as I felt the font deserved a double storey g. The script g is still available at its respective code point in the IPA-block. I haven't changed all the other gs yet.
I also changed the Æ, because that was relatively easy, with there only being around 5 glyphs containing it.
@CMunk "takes significantly longer if I minimize the window while it loads... " I seem to have the same thing, in Firefox in a different tab or with Firefox minimized it seems to almost stop loading at 1400 for my font. And I mean stop. So maybe it's a FS glitch or something...
Not more than 2,000 glyphs. More than 5,000 glyphs!!!!! 5,827,670,230,572,958,485,834,968/10!
My Crazy Pixel Extended Extended is 4th. CPEEE will beat yours, Crazy Pixel Madness sure will beat it, IF it comes. CPEEE is a work in progress. 3099 glyphs!
@Umbreon126: Excactly my thought
@micgio: Yes, that sample is a bit outdated ;P
@minidonut: Great! I love some competition ;)
P.S.: I shortened the name, but the font is still growing, slowly :D
7x7 Monopixel. Not done, and it already has MORE than FIVE THOUSAND glyphs. Conclusion: ME. GONNA. BEAT. U. ;D
I'm trying to beat u with my 5Mikropix, but i'm nowhere near close...
Fs spaghetti. 1000 glyphs to go.
Quick! Extend! Before you get devoured by THE SPAGHETTI MONSTER!!! OM-YOM-YOM!!!!
What-a? You don't-a like spag-a-hetti? TOO BAD. :) You got-a pushed to-a second place! :D
I admit defeat... for now. Let me just make some more Ethiopic characters now :)
Now with the completion of Ethiopic and Ethiopic supplement (also known as Ge'ez) I have taken over the flying spaghetti monster. Here's the beginning of the ethiopic bible (Genisis 1):
While you were fighting the flying spaghetti monster, Umbreon snuck past you. You still have to take first from him. :)
By the way, in the selection from Genesis, are the colons (at least they look like colons) word separators, and the double colons sentence separators? That's what it looks like from the placement of the verses.
And then beat "Password". |D
I applaud you for your efforts to include Ethiopic, the letter heights and bases confuse me :)
Now to add Ethiopic Extended and Extended-A? (why so many, Unicode?!)
@ETHprod.: Yep, I see that serveral fonts have taken the lead from me.
And yes, the Ethiopic wordspace (U+1361) looks like a colon and the full stop (U+1362) is a double colon or four dots in a square. There is some quite artistic punctuation in Ge'ez it seems, for example the paragraph seperator (U+1368) is seven dots arranged in a hexagon.
@Umbreon126: I'll try :P
Yeah, I pretty much made up my own standard for the Ethiopic script as I went along. I figured I can always blame the small scale ;)
Of course, now that I'm getting into Ethiopic I might as well make all of the unicode sets.
Mikropix is catching up to you! Soon you'll have to fight the Mighty Mikropix Monster!
Ethiopic Extended looks a bit too detailed for this resolution, but I added Ethiopic Extended-A, as well as Glagolitic, Phags-Pa, Kayah Li, Full-width and half-width characters (except Korean).
Now only Password is ahead of me, and will probably be for a while ;) Still: I am now the fontstruction with the most *non-identical* characters.
@winty5: Not if I can outrun it ;D
Guys you are mad ! If i tried such an expansion with any of my complex styles, it would take me at least 20 years ! Complete my usual 100 glyphs or so is already such a hard and painful task !
@CMunk What's the thing after the �?
@Umb126: Once upon a time FontStruct had support for some additional unicode characters, such as phoenecian (U+10900-U+1091F). I think it's a leftover from then, but I'm not sure excactly what it is.
Ah, okay. Actually I was the one that noticed the upper ranges were all buggy and reported it :P
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
