The inspiration came from xenophilius's Micropolis. A nice little pixel world, where the inhabitants run and play happily and endlessly on the computer screen. Work in progress, suggestions welcome.

cool pixel world
Comment by Michel Troy ~UrbanPixel~ (Upixel) 3rd December 2012
@upixel: Thanks!

I like the Space Needle-type building and the polluting industry is a good touch ;) If you're familiar with SimCity Societies, there's a building called "DLux Sleep Tubes" or something that would look good here.

@perjys547: Thanks! I'm not really familiar with SimCity, can you post a picture of DLuxe Sleep Tubes?

Very cool !

B.t.w. your panorama a bit like my forthcoming pixel art (it's finished, and I'm close to put an end to their videos for Youtube), though mine is mainly in the Middle Ages or HF, with 6-px height chrs (yours are the size of my Trolls : 9-px tall) and overdetailed stuff for this size… you'll see and have fun ! :-))

Follow-up: here is my 'twin world' (pixel art) drawn a little earlier… I do not have plans to fontstruct it (though individual characters and animations would be quite fun!), but I reserve the (copy)right to design a project with it (e.g. a video game for the standard 48K ZX Spectrum, as featured here). The voxel art version is -temporarily?- there. More versions in this and that directory.

You left us in 2016, after sharing a great deal of fontstructions, and -to me- many interesting very low-res fonts or related trials (I'll finish archiving them all). You must be 15 or 16 now… :-))

I still read all the comments on here :) thanks for sharing. I don't plan on continuing to make more fonts but I'm glad I was part of this community :)

Winty! So nice to see your comment. Great that you keep looking in and that you enjoyed being here :) I hope you'll continue visiting (and maybe comment), we 'oldies' miss your presence. Hope school is going ok :)

Comment by Aeolien 18th January 2018

Cool Winty! I remember a lot of fun with you on FS in 2013! (You'll see more minimalism from me, even in voxel art soon, since pixels belong to 'oldies' :-)))

Happy 2018 and studies…!

Comment by dpla 22nd January 2018

thanks guys, school is going well for me at the moment, got straight A's last semester, thanks for the comments and happy 2018 :)

<smallest>Sure, Aeo's a truck driver! ;-))</smallest in-joke>

Super! I remember you wished to become a professional type designer (where the 'competition' is tough, and the earnings rather low IMHO). More than all, it's the amount of work, related or not, that makes the real, big boys, I think. And I'm sure, from what you created here, that you have enough perseverance to obtain what you really want, in Life in general. In the case of the studies, the pastimes are risky for the school report, when they turn into a passion, actually. Graphics (like this place), even music (any recent link to your pages?) are sometimes used to fill a void. I'm glad you stay focused on school. During the summer holidays, though, do what you want! (I'd recommend the voxel art: with your imagination, you might renew the genre…)

Back to the topic:

• You overlooked one pixel, right there on this cyclops… (or is it a missing tooth? I'd need the magnifying software seen in the original Blade Runner…)

• The story in your "5Pixity!" is interesting: even Winty Inc. is within reach, in a few years.

• Yeah, 2018 will be a good one here (although it's not seething with new/spectacular fontstructions, IMHO). The pixel-only designs are still very numerous (like a 'loss leader'), while the greatest fontstructers (there's no official list, I think) left a little the place, I assume (AFTer they mastered the tool, even to some craziness…).
