Description
So, I finally done it. This is the monospaced font for Space Engineers. Why? Because it gives so many possibilities!

Features:
- Font is monospace, you know :)
- Extra symbols to easiest information delivery
- Colored pixels to use it instead of Keen's gamepad buttons
- Spacers. They is not really requared, but just in case.

Supported languages
- English
- Russian
- Hebrew
- Greek
Also there is Latin Extended A and partially Latin Extended B pages of unicode.
So, probably font can do more.

Installation:
Unfortunately, KeenSWH does not implemented modding support for ingame fonts. Because of this font must be installed manually.
To do so you need to:
- download the font there: {LINK REMOVED}
- found the Space Engineers installation directory
- go to "\SpaceEngineers\Content\Fonts" subdirectory
- unarchive content of downloaded archive there

Uninstallation
- go to "\SpaceEngineers\Content\Fonts"
- remove "white_shadow" directory
- run files validation in Steam

Charset:
Font contains:

All of symbols from original font located on their charcodes.

Extra symbols:
- 1-4 button symbols (1-4 squares) at codes \uE030-\uE033
- Colored bullets at codes \uE034-\uE055
- Warning symbol /!\ at \uE056
- Info symbol (i) at \uE057
- Error symbol (x) at \uE058
- Spacers with 2^n step (1,2,4,..,256) at \uE070-\uE078
- palette in range \uE100-\uE2FF

Palette usage:
Chars in pallete is just a colored squares

To retrieve required color use this method:

static char rgb(byte r, byte g, byte b) {
return (char)(0xe100 + (r << 6) + (g << 3) + b);
}

Existing scripts
Almost certainly complex output of script will be broken with this font until spetial fix.
Plan script fix is very simple. You can pickup it in this world.
Configurable Automatic LCDs.. It was a hard nut. But I successfully patched it. But there is bad news starts: MMaster disallowed me to publish it.
So, I'm unable to publish fixed version as separate creation. You still can pickup fixed version in this world, but for a gods sake - do not report issues in this version to MMaster.

Known issues
KeenSWH uses fonts in GUI pretty roughly. So, this is impossible to change lcd font without affecting GUI.
All player's gui is clean and unaffected, but almost all of debug menus uses lcd font for some reason. So, font in is also changed to monospaced there.

You can use one of those:
- Colored bullets at codes \uE034-\uE055
or select some of palette chars

You can open FontData.xml file and copy character from it directly

Yes, it can. Whipsplash made a good image converter for this exact purpose:

Out of curiosity, can these only be used via a PB or can you enter the codes directly on to an LCD in some manner?

Sorry Krypt, novice with this but what characters or how would I add say a green icon for say "on" and red for "off"?
Krypt  [author] Mar 25, 2019 @ 4:59am 
It is a part of the game now.
You need to go to you LCD screen and select "Monospaced" in font selection box.

Hey Krypt, I have only just come across a design using your font, is this still good to go or is there some other way to do it now?
Krypt  [author] Dec 28, 2016 @ 4:55am

Hello.
I find only 2 large arrows (which go to the right) in pink and blue colors.
Where are the other colors ?

"- Colored bullets at codes \uE034-\uE055"

Okay, I will do that and look it up to see if the colors line up.
