HD Minecraft Font


I've noticed a few requests for Minecrafts default font converted to HD, without losing the style of the original. That said, here are two HD font's for 32x and 64x packs.

These fonts were originally created for the Defscape packs, but due to increased interest, I've made them available to everyone else.

Feel free to use these if you'd like your Minecrafts font to be upgraded to HD, or if you're a texture packer looking for a 32x or 64x default style Minecraft font for your pack.

Download

Please patch Minecraft with MCPatcher or Optifine before installing this pack.


- Download Minecraft 64x HD Font from Mediafire here (via adf.ly) -
- Download Minecraft 32x HD Font from Mediafire here (via adf.ly) -


Please note: The 64x and 32x HD Minecraft fonts are best displayed with a monitor resoution matching or higher than 1080x1920. This garauntees the best experience. Anything lower than this and the fonts may appear slightly distorted/jagged.

Disclaimer

If you use this font in your texture pack, please remember to clearly credit "d3fin3d" and link back to this thread.

Please ensure that both the credit and link is clearly visible within your MCF thread / PMC page / landing site.

Thanks!

This one? I'm not sure.

I created both of these from scratch, pixel by pixel. There may be similar fonts out there, and in the case of the 32x version, it's possible there's a coincidentally identical font in existence (there aren't that many combinations of pixels to play with when converting from 16x to 32x!) but I'm not entirely sure as I haven't checked all the HD packs on the forum thoroughly.

If the fonts in this thread have been used by other authors though, I simply ask that they link back to this thread :).

Oh, well, must have been awfully similar then. I'm gonna use this. Easily replaces ugly default.

Probably thinking of mine. I was the first on the forums to have a high resolution font (64x64) And it was done in a similar fashion to this. Basically a resize of the default font with a rule-based pixel-editing job. I've since made an original font, but the old one can still be found in the 'old font' folder in my pack as well as many other packs. Often without credit. :/ Easy to identify though with the green creeper smiley face, and colored card suits and sex characters.

I just overlayed your font with my own old font. It's pretty amusing to see how similar they are, while clearly being completely different. You took a more rounded, circular curve approach while mine took a bit more of a mechanical, blocky, angular approach.

Yeah, people should really credit properly when it comes to including other peoples work in their packs, even if permission was granted.

The way I did this was to scale up default and add/remove pixels one by one where necessary following a strict pattern for consistency.

I'd be interested to see your version, to see how the two differ :).

Yeah, I was going for the smooth round look without losing the Minecraft feel :). Your sharper look is really nice though, and will work better than the smooth one with certain packs.

Hrm... this looks good. Would I be able to use your 64x font and modify it to fit my texture (Isolation)?

Sure, if you don't mind crediting for the original font. Although, if you modify it to the point where the two fonts look nothing like eachother, then you probably don't need to credit.

Either way, feel free to use it!

Actually, this looks pretty good =)  It has a nice smooth look to it and I have already given up on trying to make a Wind Waker font for my texture pack >.<

Would it be ok if I used this font for my texture pack as long as I give permission?  ;3

Feel free Blaz.

Yeah, making fonts can be a huge nightmare, especially to make them look consistent and flowing :(.
