New silicon fonts

Postby QuartzCrystal » Wed Jan 21, 2015 8:04 pm #61280

Oh god why please no.

I'm all for new fonts for the silicons, but the italics make reading robotic chat so jarring and weird. Please revert.

It's a good idea, but it looks kind of strange, really. It's not distinct, on my end, at least.

Codewise, I feel it should have been tied to the language (Silicons speak ROBOT. (which is not the same as "binary")) instead of hard-coded directly into silicon speech. The actual font does not display for me, so I cannot judge it properly. It should never be displayed in italics, though.

Robotic chat looks like ass.

Normal silicons talking in radio looks great.

Yeah I agree that regular silicon text looks awesome, nice to see some difference.
However that text in italics looks TERRIBLE... Maybe we can use another font or show binary talk some other way? Or just have binary standard font but italics as previously?

The fonts in general are pretty ass, not just the silicon one. Mixing serif and non serif fonts is just bad though.

Seems they've been changed to another font. I think this one works, but yet it doesnt seem as nice somehow.

Also speech bubbles in the case of cyborgs, voice changer is getting really out of date same with the similar ling power.
