Celestia Medium Redux Version 1.55 by mattyhex Celestia Medium Redux Version 1.55 by mattyhex
The reason I've not done any work on this for the past however many months, is mostly because FontForge's UI only displays properly on a now defunct Ubunut virtual install, also partly to blame is that I'm pretty busy nowadays.

But I came back from work today and decided to spend a couple of hours working on this, the final version I'll be releasing. If anyone wants to take over, that's fine. Also a note to anyone who creates other formats, do let me know! I'd love to host them.

Now in two versions! One with the normal 'I' (with the dot above it) and one with a more traditional 'I' (no dot).

I've also attempted to create a PostScript version, I have no idea how successful they are, but that might be useful to some folks.

The link, as per usual

Hello there! Your font is missing fraction symbols, such as "¼", "½", and "¾". I would like to update your font to make it better. I'm crediting you for my updates to this font.

I updated it! Here is the download link: www.dropbox.com/s/j5x40gl6ila4…
There should be both the normal and alternate versions and they should be 1.6. Also, "¼", "½", and "¾" are added.

There might be a ClearType version somewhere, or you could download FontForge and make a copy yourself.

Unfortunately, I don't know what the problem is.

Apparently it might be to do with 64-bit builds, no idea why that should be.


But for various reasons I've stopped doing work on the font. :V

Nothing like playing around with a new font!

Which brings up the question: what was it like to do have to redo all the letters and symbols (especially the weird ones like the Greek letters)?

Cheers!

It wasn't too bad, just took a very long time to do.

That was mainly because I've barely used/seen the glyphs themselves.

Quick question: there's a file I"m trying to open, but it keeps returning an error. It can't find the font "CelestiaReduxAltMedium"; I've tried going to your website to find the font to re-download but it isn't there.

Is there any particular reason why this is?



On the plus side of not immediately finding the AltMedium and downloading it, this little mishap led me to stumble upon :iconkefkafloyd:'s rant on fonts and boy howdy did I learn a lot more about fonts than I never though possible (Arial was just a ripoff of Helvetica? What? And the Celestia Redux font has a commercial/official version as "Generation B", SAY WHAATTT?")

Anyhow. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to make a free version. You probably don't get enough love despite the impressive usefulness and creativity that your free version has facilitated. I'm sure you get to smugly pat yourself on the back whenever you see fanworks with Celestia Medium, huh?

Random large comment ahead warning!

Just gonna jump in real quick to say something. You learned some stuff from :iconkefkafloyd:'s article, which is cool... if you're a professional. The thing that person missed was quite large. All fonts you purchase can only be used for personal use. When you use it in a game or website, you have to include the raw file itself, meaning you are illegally distributing it and you technically have to pay for everyone who got a copy of the file. That's why open-source alternatives are much better if you can't make your own stuff, especially if you're unsure on licensing standings. As for the differences in form, well, unless you're super nit-picky for details on typography, the changes will be very minuscule, considering that the font isn't blown up to like size > 72. Even then, you'd have to study the original font prior to pointing out the flaws of the reproduced version, which is something not a lot of people actually do.

This wasn't an argument or anything, just giving you a heads-up if you didn't know. Yep, kinda random, but bye now!

Evilbob0 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013
Huh. That's certainly something to consider as well which would never have occurred to me... who woulda thunk that distribution after purchase might be illegal too?

I suppose if you're as adamant about :iconkefkafloyd: about supporting the original font makers, instead of defaulting to the open-source, you could try to work out a licensing deal with them regarding your website/game...

And well, if that falls through, no one can blame you for not trying and falling back on your BATNA!

Yep. Odd, eh? Now to be honest, when you purchase something, it still isn't yours. You simply buy the rights to use it, not the thing itself. That's why it's illegal to redistribute anything that isn't yours when you are not given the rights to do so.

Supporting the original creators is definitely a good thing, but you have to decide on the choices of what you want to see happen. If you use someone else's stuff, you're at their mercy. Sometimes people can't afford it, so that's why there's open-source!

So yeah... Falling back on the alternate is never a bad thing as some people like to point out. It also points out that you're prepared. :D

I think the link to the Alternative Version you're looking for is this: mattyhex.net/CMR/media/fonts/C… (I know that the downloads page isn't 100% clear on what's what.)


And yes, the font used on most official merchandise is Generation B, there's details/links to purchase that on my CMR website too.

Again, yes, I do like spotting my font appear in other's work (since I've had loads of people download it, but I don't know who's using it, so it can appear literally anywhere!)

Happy you've made this, I've been using it in my Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k series as the main font.
I've been using the old 1.3 version but in photoshop cs6 every time I attempt to convert the text into a vector shape PS throws up an error message. Hopefully this will fix this.

Unfortunately, don't work with After Effects CS6. When i try to select this font, it shows an error "matrix too high" and when I click OK button, it still keeps showing, so I have to close AE using task manager.
