GS Unicode is a project I'm working on so (almost) all languages get support! With 14,564 non-spacing characters, this font is finished (as of Unicode 11.0). Please tell me if some of the characters aren't working. I'll try to fix them as best as I can!
A monospace coding font with support for Basic and More Latin, Latin Extended A, Armenian, Georgian, (Hiragana, Katakana (these two are being redrawn)), Bopomofo / Zhuyin, Basic Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. Also supports Box Drawing and some other character sets. Anti-homoglyph (does not or should not contain any two characters that look exactly the same)

Apologies for the gamepad prompts taking the place of real languages in the fontstruct version, they will be reassigned to the "private use" areas of the font in all other versions on other websites.
Reading forum comments I know that there are fonts using 1single brick in over 14k glyph places. As I believe that one font of the type described above is enough for FontStruct I decided to not add another pack of samesame ... But I wanted to discover if there is satisfaction in such an activity, if spending a lot of time ignoring my family and home life gives a valuable important result. Strangely I found the exercise irritating and entirely unsatisfactory, a waste of time, effort, ressources. I admit that looking busy in FS for an hour or so got me out of doing unpleasant work at home.
Having spent all that time it seemed logical to offer Codélire (feel free to understand this name as you think appropriate to your way of life) to you my appreciated reader-of-font-description. There is no warranty nor promise included with this font by-the-way.
What puzzled me?
Some of our members make vitriolic comments under fonts with visually unusual or even 'undecipherable' strangely-shaped glyphs. It amazes me every time I read such criticism under a font that isn't for a conlang
Where's the difference? Is it just the tag that makes a font useful (ex.for a conlang) or deserving disdain and thoughtlessness? Looking at the pure visuals of these two types of font I opine that comments should be made justly. Why accept some fonts with this kind of visual and deny the right to exist peacefully to others with the same look is beyond me. Strange that both look the same but only one type is useless, a waste of time to download and that it was a waste of time to make in the first place, isn't a real font, isn't legible, or that the glyphs need tidying up to conform to some image of what a letter/numeral/punctuation mark/symbol should look like to be legible.
Strange that these 'non-constructed' 14k+ fonts mentioned at the beginning of this "description" passage aren't subjected to the same unkind words. To me they are even less 'legible' than fonts for conlangs, fonts with phantasy 'contents' as glyphs and beginners' trial/exercise designs. I wonder why those "different" looking non-conlang fonts should have less right to exist or be appreciated for their beauty and expressiveness, why they are seen as less valid and valuable than the so-called "code-fonts" using a single-brick, and the many conlang and phantasy fonts.
Which one of those FS members well-known for comments as described above, knows what they are doing and why when they comment on fonts they don't (want to) understand; who among them has the ability, conscience, awareness and/or knowledge to explain this discrepancy to me?
I expect I'll be disappointed.
If you want to know, A,B,P,S.... are (head)3:1(body).
MOST OF letters are 12x6 except I,T,Y,f,i,l,m,t,y
I've made the numbers thinner. i d even k y. but they look better like this
What about Long leg font? do you guys want a "Long Leg"?
are \ / % ø recognizable? thanks to Se7enty-Se7en and Cookielord, \/%Ø is now better.
THANK YOU \(◦'⌣'◦)/❤❤❤
[ogonek and stroke] (Problem solved)
ogoneks and strokes are annoying me. btw if you're speaking languages with letters that has ogonek or stroke sticked on. try to write a word with ogonek or stroke and remove the ogonek or stroke. and then recognize them
if you CAN. then why do you even put it on?? ¯\_(૦ઁᗝ૦ઁ)_/¯
coment below plz i need to know. :)
if you don't like it, clone it you lazybone!
I don't speak english well, so plz tell me what is the tag this font should have. :)
Please, leave a comment with suggestions or critiques!

GOTHIXEL. A blackletter-style monospace font for small pixel sizes.
Gothixel's default tracking is not suitable for all-caps text. The capitals are slightly wider than lower case, so there is no gap between capitals. For all-caps, either increase the tracking of this font or use Gothixel Proportional, which is not monospace and which has appropriate space between all letters. However, Gothixel Proportional is further behind in development and doesn't have as many character sets yet.
Gothixel proudly supports Greek (including polytonic Greek!), Cyrillic, and, coming soon, Vietnamese and Hebrew character sets.
Please tell me about any mistakes or omissions you find and I will see about fixing/adding them. This font family was originally named "Blackletter RPG".
This project is dead. I'd appreciate it if you'd check out my new Unicode-Project, "Maxenisei". Thank you.
So, I did this today in nearly one session. Yep, all latin characters in one session. It was waaaaay more work than it looks like.
But I think it still looks pretty decent...
And you can literally write any language which uses the latin script with it.
Cyrillic and Greek may be coming soon.
and I tried making every character 5 pixels high. Just things like diaresis, accents, etc. may make it higher than that.
A font with a handwritten feel to it... Will make an HD one eventually...
In the case of even-brick wide letters, the positions of the accents are rounded up to the nearest grid square right...
