A more dwarfish font
« on: January 04, 2018, 04:28:43 am »

Hey guys,

Since the normal font just isn't dwarfy enough for my taste I adjusted the font for my DF version to a more edgy style. If you are interested in using it, find the font below. The numbers do not match the rest of the style yet but this is bound to change as well.

looks awesome, but makes reading longer text a real pain in the eyes.

no, just make it with smoother lines and it would probably be fine. the hard pixelated edges make it hard on the eyes.

I'm using the LOTR one at the moment and it looks great.
