25. "RE: side note"
In response to message #19

>UFverse has an actual symbol?

I think it may be; generally in stories to date I've just written it "cr{number}", and I just dug up the cruzeiro symbol while researching this poster. I was originally going to use the Costa Rican colón symbol, ₡, which is used to represent the in-game faux "money" in Cities: Skylines, but I decided it was too similar to the cent sign (¢); while looking for an alternative I ran across ₢ and thought, "Well, OK, there you go." :)

Sadly, the Galactic Credit symbol from Star Wars: The Old Republic does not have its own Unicode entity; but then, as far as I know the Aurebesh alphabet isn't used in the UF universe anyway, unless it's part of some sort of "Galactic Esperanto"* attempt. Honorable mention in this department to the SimCity/Sims franchise, which uses the silcrow (the legal "section" symbol), §, to represent the in-game currency—naturally called "Simoleons".
