Any "colour" version in your font workshop?
@frodo7 - whew man, that's some deep stuff there. you bring another um, dimension to commentary. you are a true renaissance man. sorry no color version.
@ tag - yes, i'm an evolutionist for sure. it seems i start something and like a pit bull, can't quite release it until, well until, oh forget it :)
@genenus1 - haha fkm. now i need to go reserve some new email addresses and domain names :)
@ oyrus - well i'm not certain, but i think soma was invented first. but of course rubik is what everyone knows. and when i was searching for the soma cube before i found it, i mainly got results showing rubik. but you're right :)
@squarepeg - as i remember the soma cube can be lots of fun and much less frustrating than rubik :)
Font siting: The current issue of PC Gamer uses the SOMA font in an article about the basics of Minecraft. However, there is an
odd vertical line across the top surface of the block directly
below the "T" cross bar.
A smaller version of the SOMA "MINECRAFT" graphic also starts
the each top left page so as to unify the gaming tips.

Happy to help, FK. Cheers!
I hope we do get the "NOT DOWNLOADABLE" option soon, or $5 - $10 buy option. I may be in the minority, but I'd certainly buy a lot of fonts on here.
My Original "GET PAID FOR FONTSTRUCTS" suggestion (which I made way back when), was that if you sell a font for $5, then you would take $4-$4.50 and Fontstruct would take $0.50-$1 (10 or 20%). That way it would be an incentive for Rob to introduce it, and also help maintain and improve the site, so people could produce better work.
We constantly see Fontstructs being abused in many ways, on various sites, in magazines, and even TV ads! These are but a tiny minority of the ones which are actually spotted by other Fonstructors. The tip of the iceberg. The fact that people get into a routine of downloading FREE fonts, makes them unwilling to PAY for decent fonts, and this causes a massive downshift of the whole system. A bit like the music industry is going through at the moment. It has to stop. We are being exploited.
Basic rule of Business - you work - you get paid.
On the other hand, when you work for Fun, you don't get paid...... until you wake up and think - "hang on everyone's benefiting from my hard work", everyone except you that is!!
Even though it's a hobby for you, creativity is highly paid for and sought after in the real world, it's just that creative people are often not very forthright, or business minded in asking for payment, as they derive immense pleasure from their hobby, and don't actually see it as work.
Non-creative people often exploit this fact. We have to stop this. Being creative is a rare commodity that needs to pay the rent, just like everybody else does.
Perhaps a more easily achieved improvement would be the "No Download" option. This would allow you to make a font public and display samples without allowing downloads.
Alternatively, a 'no download' option would be welcome as well.
I would definitely like to add a "no download" option. This is something which could well be tried out in the next month.
I'd also like to offer FontStructors an option to sell versions of their designs on FontStruct itself - I think this would make a lot of sense, and there have been plans of this nature for a long time. - It “just” needs to be implemented :-) - It's a lot of work (to do it well) and will take some time.
I'm committed to keeping FontStruct a free service with sharing and creativity rather than commerce in the foreground, but adding a marketplace aspect could be a good way to help pay for the continuing development of the site.
Finally, a reminder to everyone that you can't change a license retrospectively. For example, if Joe Bloggs downloads your font under a license allowing commercial use on Monday, you can't change the license on FontStruct on Tuesday to prohibit commercial use and then stop Joe from using your font for free in his latest Hollywood blockbuster.
Afrojet's sample gives a "rubickian" feel
you never know what you'll stumble across on the internets :) oh well
How did you do this?
@xXx XBox Gamer: if you mean 'how to fontstruct this', Frodo7 kindly gave a short tutorial in his "Voxelstorm Regular 01" page.
I assume the 3D illusion was created with detailed 2D "bricks". I might be wrong. But it definently looks good.
