Text Decals - Decals of lotsa characters to create arbitrary text, in (eventually) numerous fonts!

A buncha decals to let you create arbitrary text. First font is Big Noodle Titling, an all-caps monospaced font used in certain Mann vs. Machine signs.
I plan to add the following fonts:

Not a New Font (Yet)

so, when I came up with this a couple months ago, I wanted to have it be all one texture, which necessitated that the dimensions be a power of 2. this forced me to pick and choose which characters to include.
today, however, I realized that, since I'm using separate textures now, I'm free to include whatever characters I want. this isn't another font, but it is an expansion to the Big Noodle Titling pack.
