How to change Celestia's font

Post #1by Joey P. » 27.11.2019, 23:14

How can you change the font in Celestia? If there is a process on how to do so and it is very complicated, then please write it down (preferably with screenshots) one by one.

Additionally, what is the name of the font circled below?

I may want to use it for Celestia. Thanks!

The font you want to use needs to be saved as a .txf file in the Celestia/fonts directory. Then find this in celestia.cfg:

Code: Select all

  Font       "sans12.txf"
  LabelFont  "sans12.txf"
  TitleFont  "sansbold20.txf"

and change as desired. Here is a recent thread about the same thing; it seems .txf fonts are hard to find, although Celestia 1.7 will support .ttf fonts.

Thanks, but what font is that above? I don't know the name but I want to know.
And if this looks Celestia-unrelated, don't worry; this is in Petit Bistro Entropy.
