Ahh sadly due to repeatedly running into a corrupted font when I save newly made changes to it, it eventually catching up with me and tested the limit of my patience.
I have had to painstakingly restore the font 5 times already since I started it.
So I stopped including new characters as well as making new changes to its existing character set. (At least for now)
Too bad because I wouldve loved to see this truly getting finalized.
So at this stage there are still a number of characters that remain in rough condition, and had yet to be further optimized.
The main A-Z alphabet luckily already was close to how I invisioned it, but especially the numerals, symbols and accents still have some rough edges.
Now, forgetting all that, I still think it is not a bad font at all. Everything is there for most common Western-European languages, somewhat still making this a usable font that I shouldn't be keeping in private!
I hope that despite my bad luck this time, y'all still like it.
About this Font:
The idea was to make a classic Didone style display serif that is meant for making clean headline text similar to those often seen in older magazines or newspapers. I set out trying to design a semi-bold & slight expanded looking letterform with thin hairline serifs and strokes. I choose a large grid scale for the extra freedom in custom shaping this provides.
Technique I used in this design:
This font in particular I have experimented with working within a "(asymmetrical-) Grid Scale ratio" ( 1,5:1 ), so, changing only the value for the Horizontal grid scale. (This distorts the grid aspect ratio, and is a great way to discover and experiment with getting new forms and shapes).
The 1,5 : 1 ratio was specifically choosen to keep maths simple, in order to rebuild certain required bricks that build specific slope angles , such as a 45° (which is no longer possible to make from the FS default brick set when using asymmetric scale ratios, unless making composites).
But what this also does is opening up a totally new approach to making shapes, and..becoming quite a surprisingly easy shortcut to get unusual shapes or make variations on these, even with as little as just the rotation of the bricks/selection. (thanks to the distorted aspect ratio) :-).
This is a must try for those who are into large grid designs, fake curves or interrested in experimenting around a little.
An old font revisited and revitalised: now it's weird but fun. No diacritics, almost no punctuation nor symbols. Simply because I think this is not exactly useful ;)This is a clone of Romaeo Stand
Dresde Serif displays chiseled uppercase and flared terminals to give extra sturdyness.This is a clone of Dresde Sans
Translator needed to get SH, ZH, CH, and TH characters:
Added some new Characters for vowels, Silent Ts and Rolled Rs.

Dublin is a slanted slab serif with a corky personality. The mechanical lowercase set was supposed to go with highly ornamental Script caps, but I'm still frustrated trying to make those to work on this...
Meanwhile, comments on the different alternatives of this as it is would be highly appreciated.
I love the look of this style. The name is self explanatory ;) if you know French.........
UC, numerals and some symbols have one line thicker than the others, LC only has the thinner lines. LC can be used on its own if even thickness of lines is desired but it is 3 px shorter than UC which will show clearly when using Basic Latin LC in combination with Hebrew, numerals, some symbols and some punctuation marks. Cyrillic and Hebrew added. Latin1 will come soon.
serifia la printe the name is just trying to pretend like French. It's not French i guess?
So this font is basically serif + filled counter.
it is also for the counter competition.
CB Serif is cloned from fs tricoto by ETH Production, This font was edited and has containing a Mizo letter Ṭ (T with dot below), If you type | then appear Ṭ (T capital with dot below), and then if you type \ then appear ṭ (T small letter with dot below).

Problems with "greater than" and "lesser than"
Doesn't Support "~", Upper-case "ß"
[THINGS TO KNOW]
more Latin 90% complete. There's still few symbols not complete yet, If your need the symbols to be completed. Please leave a comment. thank you :)
I didn't put the lil' spikes on the side to the Thai letters, if you want them (the lil' spikes) to be there. Comment below to tell me :)
Russian Cylliric, Basic Latin, More Latin
[NOW WORKING ON]
Making Thai letters now,
Making Armenian letters too :)
CLONE OF "HELEN MARIE", I DIDN'T MAKE THIS. MY GOAL IS OVER 60% LATIN LETTER SUPPORT, CYLLIRIC, GREEK

Chcel som vytvoriť klasický font s rožšírením viacerých znakov tak, aby sa zachoval jeho vzhľad spojený so serifmi a preťahmi, ktoré obsahuje
I decided to be laynecom for a day, and this is the result. Didn't have time for numbers and punctuation though, unfortunately...
Some alternates available in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques encouraged, as always. Thanks and enjoy!
Small and sassy. Circle bricks used for lc. Uc is more or less alternates - an evolution - of the lc. Final comp entry. It's always fun!!!This is a clone
I named this kind of randomly, but really like the name and think its fits - not for an obvious reason. It seems FS comps always bring out the creativity in the community. I may be like many regarding FS about the amount of time available to devote to the art and craft of FS design, especially even more during the holiday season. So what does Mr Meek do? Well, I am coining the term 'Gridlock' to mean the inability to use FS even though you want to - akin to writer's block or as FSer cam be 'gridlocked' while working on a font...for whatever reason. Blah, blah. Anyway, it always seems these comps have the insane ability to utterly destroy 'Gridlock' and get things moving again. God bless, Mr Meek.This is a clone
This one-eyed character set places one circle-serif to start or end strokes somewhere on each glyph (except "O") in the set...hence it's name. Angled serifs acting as hands or feeet (or tails?) are used elsewhere. This is derived from the base font (lc) I used for previous efforts. I made it tall and then thought Cyclops (for SerifComp) to use now since I never released it (full disclosure). Anyway, a different view of what serif can be :)This is a clone
G1 Radia. A scaled down version of an originally larger fontstruction. Lots of details with smooth micro bullnose serifs, high contrast stroke lines, and decorative ball terminals.This is a clone
G1 Valora. Extreme serif titling caps. Maxing out 48 brick height for Serifcomp. Not enough room for lowercase. Not enough time for more characters.This is a clone
elza: serif meets ball terminal... I found out the Germans actually have a word for this: 'Tropfenserife', which roughly translates as 'teardrop-serif'. Normally appearing at the end of strokes in letters such as a,c,f,g,j and r, I have tried to build this font around it, using it as its main design feature.
