Some time after I decided to unleash Pixelbabania VI Deluxe onto the world, I deemed it appropriate to also create a light version to go alongside it. Had a good bit of fun making sure things looked right with this font, which also explains why I decided to fix its sister font while I was at it.
Here it is, at last. And just in time for the start of a new season, wherever in the world you all are.
Update : 2/12/2023 : For those of you who love using Box Drawings, fixed up a few glyphs that weren't looking right when used with others.
The first version was made in less than 20 mins!
Currently has 14021 glyphs and counting!
Latest Update: Finished Vedic Extensions.
Pro tip for Myanmar: Use ေ and ႄ before a consonant to get the optimal vowel placement.
Pro tip for Devanagari: Use ि and ॎ before a consonant to get the optimal vowel placement.
One of the tiniest Eurostile clones (with a big character set) you can find on Fontstruct!
I took a look at the very first font I published and looking back at it now, I couldn't help but think I could have done better and gone much further with it. Having learned a few things along the way when I was working on the light version of Pixelbabania, I decided to invest some time into working on a much improved version of Pixelbabania VI, while once again following a self-imposed limitation. This time, I decided to go with 6x9 (with some exceptions) to allow a bit more wriggle room and to make characters with accents much nicer, and even decided to change up some of the characters to improve their look. Not only this, I decided I'd try and see if it was possible to add more characters from other sets and thus far, it had gone quite nicely.
After so much time on and off, now I share with you the fruits of my labor and love.
Note: I have done what I could to get N'ko and to a lesser extent Adlam to play nice; unfortunately I could not get the tone marks to actually just go above or below the characters properly, therefore they will take residence right next to the character, taking up another space. Apologies for any inconvenience caused to those who type in those languages.
Update - 02/12/2023 : Came across something I can't believe I overlooked. Fixed up U+2551 in the Box drawing set. Such has been fixed now, and should look nicer with its fellow box drawings.
I am going to expand this font. Why not, after all? It is my best work so far.

The Unstructed series is obsolete with the construction of GS Unicode 2.0, and the addition of all Unicode blocks into the FS inventory. I won't delete this font for those of you who still use the original, pixelated GS Unicode (for compatibility purposes).
Though I'm only fluent in English (and somewhat Spanish), I do know the Cyrillic / Russian alphabet by heart. While studying this script, I recalled a story my mother told me about the CCCP and the Soviets. She talked about having air raid drills in her school years. I'm no communist, but her story seemed fascinating to me. I also thought the initialism was odd, as standard Russian (including Soviet Russian) doesn't have the equivalent to the Latin C.
It turns out that the Ss in Russian look identical to Cs in English and the Rs in Russian look identical to the Ps in English. This makes the initialism SSSR (es es es ar) and not CCCP (si si si pi).
