Extra fonts

You can add fonts by installing fonts mod. Be aware that each font comes with numerous textures. This can result in slowing media downloading and/or client display.

Font mods can be found here:

  • Metro: A multipurpose font with many chars (uppercase, lowercase and accentuated latin letters, usual signs, cyrillic and greek letters).
  • OldWizard: An old style gothic font.
  • Botic: A scifi style font.
