Bug reports are like nuts to him and you know squirrels just can't resist the urge to hide those things:

Hrm. Too many threads to read. Ima just stay in here, if that's all right.

Hey cats! I noticed that Kalin has a sweeet photo of his sweeet ride, right there in his siggleature. How cool is that? If you're like me, wishing you could be as cool as Kalin, thinking that a sweeet photo might be a good way to fake it, today is a day! Just pop one of these in your signalture:

Wanna show off your mad boss plane name too? Give this a go:

Code:
[img]http://skyrates.jusque.net/ride/0/Zabrak!.png[/img]

That'll show 'em.

You may have to fly around for half an hour when you buy a new plane before your sigmundture catches up.

Hmm. Looks like shiny. I'll have to think about adding the plane name. Yay for new goodies!

Random question for Kate: Which fonts do you use for the signature toys?

If it's a secret or something, you don't have to tell me. :cheeky:

Skyrates uses two distinctive display typefaces; Crime Fighter and Armor Piercing, both from Blambot. Those would be the ones you're looking for, Kevin.

The waters get muddier once you start looking at text typefaces. Various get used, sometimes mish-mashed together. Take a look at your plane's craft panel in-game and count the fonts on your screen.

On the website the css is
Code:
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

except for forum pages, which get
Code:
font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

Flick back and forth between /forum and /influence.php and watch the text in the top right corner.

In-game, I'm only eye-balling it, but it looks like Arial Rounded in the skills descriptions. I rather like that.

Radio text used to be Comic Sans, if I remember correctly. That was replaced by Trebuchet. Its screwball g and falling-over e have been popping up like meerkats, here and there in Skyrates, ever since.

Seems there's a fight going on between Trebuchet and Verdana in Skytopia. The main battleground looks to be who gets to control the lucrative Upgrades business.

Have I missed/misidentified anything?

Interesting stuff.


Wow, thanks! :remylove:

Yeah, it was mainly the Blambot typefaces that I was curious about. I'd been trying to identify them since last summer, and I came pretty close, but I never found the exact ones used by Skyrates.

I also liked your study of the typefaces used around Skytopia! I've noticed some of them before, but you also pointed out several others that I did not notice. :grin:

Thanks again for your help! :cheeky:

Thanks for making me think I feel like I might look cool!

I spotted some Arial skulking around the bottom of the game, trying to pass, and that's Arial Narrow in the shifty queue display bar thing. Which is not in the least bit interesting, I know, but there you go.

Out of curiosity, would there be any way to do vapor trail overlays? I'm kind of curious what all the Kars look like combined.

You can merge in additional trails by shift-clicking names.
