New font style for Pioner: Ma first mod. :P
Ok I know it might be stupid and is not really a big thing but being the font freak that I am 😳 . I started looking for new styles that could give the game a bit of a change in looks without really messing up the dimensions of the text in game. Finally found one that works. Here are some pics to exemplify the change. I'll continue my quest for fonts suited for Pioneer.
first make a backup of the fonts file in the Pioneer data folder then replace/overwrite in the pioneer-alpha8\data folder.
Comments or bashings welcome. And no this is not a total conversion or rebirth mod. 😳 😆
I really quite like that font. I've been dissatisfied with the stock font since the beginning. Are these free fonts? Can we include them?
I think they are. The status appears as free in the font page. Check under "Sci-fi". http://www.dafont.com/search.php?psize=m&q=monkirta It does appear as freeware. I might as well send a pm to the creator and ask for permission to get it permanently implemented. His site is a bit strange though. He seems to be obsessed with the Coyote cartoon. 😯 😆 http://nipcen.deviantart.com/gallery/
I just installed it and I like it! 😀
very close to what is named else Serpent, i allways liked that one, it has a good style and is still good to read.
he might will have created himself, hard to tell from far.
i guess you reckognized i put two font's in my compilation as well,
one i used for the labels is called Babylon Industrial and is downloaded from free fonts,
the other is a typical moonbase alpha style font and i downloaded that from a related page.
but the serpent like font is of course far better to read.
while i will stay to the Bab font for the labels, i like the appearance.
btw, i guess if you copy a existing font such as from a TV series it isn't really free.
same goes to the serpent font, it's that close to the original that you could say it's a ripped one.
on the other hand, to create a stylish, quite good to read font, not much possibilities are left.
