The Chinese version remains to be done, is that so?

The glyphs are Simplified Chinese: 长城
The Mac system font is close but not a perfect match; I don't know if the open-source Zen Hei might be closer.

I tried to font match a while back but doing that with the font identifying websites was an exercise in futility.

That's for sure. Easier would be to just modify the glyphs I have in Inkscape, but perhaps easier still is to use img4dat:

Hmm, the Chinese characters don't display correctly here—but they're fine when you go into the part details page:
   

I wonder if that will be a problem? I noted one other official part with a Chinese character in its title, so I took it to be acceptable. Or is the issue on the website side?

Which list is this? I checked the Parts List and the list generated by search and those both display correctly.

Hmm, you're right—it looks okay for me on the search list, as well as the Activity list. It only comes up this way on the My Submits list. If that's the only place it's a problem, I'm not sure I'd worry. :-)

I am, but that's my job as website admin.

Glad to see Chinese Characters in LDraw Big Grin
the font may be 'Adobe 繁黑體 Std B Bold'
good job.

Gosh, I think you're right! This looks like a perfect match to me—note the two key points (circled) that I couldn't find in any other font:

An Adobe font does make sense, as they're likely using Adobe software to design these patterns. Of course I ended up just sampling the bitmap from a part photo, but this is good info in case we need to model more Chinese characters in the future! Smile

Hooray! Should we apply the new "Complete" prefix, or leave it off in anticipation of next year's sets?

Ill mark. We won't have to do one for the White House and, as long as there isn't a non-Roman variant, I'll probably make them as they appear.
