New Versions in my last Post

I just created a new Aurebesh font, because I thought there were several shortcomings in the exsisting fanmade Aurebesh fonts.

This is the first (fanmade) Aurebesh font which covers the full ASCII Code, meaning it will display most english Text correctly without missing characters and uncomprehensible Symbols like a Tie Fighter or the Alliance Starbird for brackets or special characters.

Secondly it is the first (fanmade) Aurebesh font which is in OTF format (compatible with all mayor Operating Systems) and uses ligatures.

This means the double characters(TH SH OO KH NG CH EO AE) will be displayed as they should (oo for example will be displayed as one Orenth instead off two Osk).

The third new feature is that it comes in two Versions:
One Normal and one with mirrored capital Letters like the are uses in a few canon sources( for example in Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith)

Images



I used normal Latin characters for symbols of which there is no offical Aurebesh Version(%@&^ etc.) , because I thought custom characters for them would only confuse.

I made a few custom ones but I didn#t include them, maybe I will make a Version with them later.

Please post Feedback. What do you like what could be done better. How could this be improved further.

You know, I always wanted to have the vowels with acent. They are quite used in other languages to write properly. That could be quite useful. Just think how you'd write "Padmé".

Hmm, I would always just use a simple character for those (writing it Padme), but
I am currently working on a second Verison with many new characters and I will include
those characters since they are rather rather simple to create.

Work in Progress:


The ampersand (&,et) is a combination of E and T since this is how the real "&" developed (ligature of the Latin et(and))

So what do you think?

If anyone has requests, improvement suggestions fell free to ask Smile

I haven't worked on this for a few month now, but I might get back to this after i finish my bachelor thesis and finally make a new Inverted Capitals Version.

If you have any comments critics, encountered problems or any requests let me know.

EDIT: Also if anyone actually uses this font for more than just toying around in a text editor, I would like to see what you use it for Very Happy
