Inspired by fs songarak.
What if GS Unicode wasn't just made of pixels? What if it had a better, more appealing width/height ratio? What if it utilized the new FS inventory? And what if I wasn't way too ambitious/crazy in making this? No idea, but I'm eager to find out!
I've split this font series up by plane (though as of yet only the fonts for Plane 0 and F exist), since .ttf files have a technical limit of 65,535 glyphs.
Things that are planned but not implemented yet are listed as [TBA] (to be added).
This font (Plane 0) should also serve as the hub for most major updates (like those relating to the series as a whole).
Links to planes:
Plane 0: [THIS FONT]

Additional PUA assignments in supplemental planes, which will be put in their respective fonts:

F1FB0~F1FFF - Muric [TBA]
F2000~F235F - canIPA [TBA]
F2360~10FFFF - <unassigned>
Blocks listed [TBA] are subject to change in length and location, while those that aren't are (theoretically) stabilized à la UTC policies.
Feel free to recommend PUA assignments!
Also, it's more than likely I won't know every script well enough that there won't be any mistakes. If/when I make a mistake, please tell me and I'll do my best to fix it!
Just a typeface I work on from time to time. Progress is somewhat slow but irregular.
Currently more than 2900 characters.
Comments are appreciated.
Update 1-Nov: Added Supplemental Arrows-B, Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics Extended, Variation Selectors
High resolution version of ARROWED, for Poigz.
20JUN2019: I have the knowledge & ability to perfect this one now, but want to spend some more time studying it to figure out all the composites I need to make. Expect an update soon!This is a clone of ARROWED
Inspired by the symbol ☈. I always thought this was the Retrograde symbol since it appears near the astrological signs in Unicode. So this font was going to be inspired by planetary orbits as well. Once I found out ☈ was in fact the thunderstorm symbol, I decided to stick with the jagged look!
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
~This "is" MC font, except it has two times better quality and I added much more glyphs! Please tell me what characters should I add next :)
18/08 - Added "Basic Greek" letters and fixed some mistakes.
20/08 - Added Coptic and the rest of Greek; completed "More Latin."

WHAT SHOULD I MAKE NEXT?
Just in case anybody wanted a small, serifed, pixel-sharp font with personality and figure (old-style) numerals, I whipped this up... then overachieved, perhaps. It has full Latin-1 and Latin Extended-A support, extended punctuation, most Greek, and as much Cyrillic as I could justify working on. It also has some Roman numerals, many arrows, and a few other random things.
If anyone out there actually wishes to use this for setting anything with Greek or Cyrillic alphabets, please let me know if I've made any terrible errors or if more characters are desired. I know better than to trust my typographical sense for alphabets I don't use in an actual language context!
Pixel Font version 1.5
