Does someone know what Fonts are used on the cover of Freelancer?

I'm especially interested in the subtitle's font ( "The Universe of Possibility" ) but also the title itself.

Haha thanks, I came across those too, and indeed they share *some* of its characteristics, especially Dubstep Cadence, but not quite. There was a third one for which the same can be said.

I'll give it another search.

Hey this is weird: the version of the cover I donwloaded has a slightly different font for the subtitle: one in which the horizontal dash in the H, E, F and P, and the vertical one in the Y, is prolongued.

EDIT not from a cover, but from this logo .svg:

I think first one looks more futuristic / tech, and proper to be in the title for FL.

Cannot help identify the one from the cover, but that SVG subtitle I'm rather certain is the system font from the PS3 that was also used in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, except here it's not italicized. Have a look:

Hey thanks! Yes that is (almost if not totally) the same font.

Maybe I can de-italicize it with Fontographer. EDIT yup: simply skew everything by 12°

"Freelancer" appears to be written in a font called Vibrocentric.

Vibrocentric seems a good mathc indeed. Thanks!!

I'm working on a better version of the subtitle font atm. The quick fix I did left some error message in the same folder; although I do not notice any problems, I might just create an entirely new font, based on that one. I'll make sure to include all the special (umlauted, accented, Scandinavian, Iceland, Hungarian) glyphs too (but sofar not the Polish, because I believe those are an awful lot and I think the chance of using them will even be smaller than the Hungarian double-accented O, lol). I will upload it here, if I can do that easily. I realize that fonts is certainly not The Starport's core business, but if I already put some effort in it, why not.

I just realized that of course I do not own the copyrights of the original font that I used as a point of departure. If that is a problem, I kindly ask the admins/mods to remove the font again.

The title, "Seventeen Sectors", is from my overambitious mod project Don't hold your breath until it's finished.

EDIT oh nevermind: "Unknown filetype rejected" If someone's interested, let me know.

Just wrap it in a .zip archive and it should work

Of course

Seventeen Sectors true type font: regular, italic, bold, bold-italic

Open in new window


EDIT now that I look at it again, I see that the uppercase-I with-circumflex and the uppercase-I with-diaeresis are just normal I's — but those diacritics are included in the lower case variants, and there is no difference between upper- and lowercase I anyway.
