    Carwings Clone for StreetDeck (interest?)

    I've been told my Carwings "Inspired" skin wasn't accurate enough (by design), so I did some work on seeing just how accurate is possible in SD. Well, the first picture is actual Carwings.

    This is an early work in progress, but since it takes a lot to get everything working together, I wanted to judge interest before continuing. My editor won't allow me to create importable font images, so I'm having to try making them in Photoshop, which is a learning process.

    And did you miss the (by design) part?

    Ok, I think we can conclude a few things now....

    1. Accuracy does not equal popularity
    2. Accuracy is defined by the original, not someones conception of the original. The original font (where in english) is arial - the font used in StreetDeck - and not Lucida, even if lucida looks better.
    3. I was able to figure out font importation (my editor was resizing and failing. Had to go with photoshop). Changing all fonts to Century Gothic which isn't even close to accurate, but it works for me.
    4. I'm obvously not the only one that likes aspects of carwings, but not carwings as a whole, so why continue to try and "copy" it?
