yo dude change r3 #~ key to |/ because you aren't completely covering any iso layouts. it's like half uk iso half terminal iso. seems like you were trying to go with less keys so what i'm and the other guy is recommending is terminal iso which uses less keys.

If this goes into Groupbuy I would love to pick up the base kit and the novelties. If you can work on trying to get either a Rama or Thok collaboration that would be incredible.

Not to mention I think I have this tree thingy or something very similar in my yard, I used to step on it and it popped and would freak me out

i'd highly advise adding some more angles of each board and not having everything under a tab that people need to click on. I'd also advise adding some more novelty icons, and maybe even sub legends in the base kit. I'd also look over the banner, the photo editing on the board wasn't done very well and i think a whole render would fit better. But other than that, great idea, and great colors. I'd defiantly cop this once fully fleshed out.

Edit: some kitting work is needed on the base kit, like iso, don't have half uk and half terminal, it's better to stick to one. And extra b can be moved to spacebars or base kit. f13 or some sort of r1 macro key would be nice as well

Love the colors you chose. Hope this eventually makes it to group buy  :thumb: maybe it’s very much just me but love the red and pink you chose enough to wanna see how this would look with an alt alpha kit (either with mod pink or accent red idc lol). Not sure how it would actually look but just a thought :)

I'm super into these colors, I think the novelties can definitely use a bit more love with more variations. I think the scale of the Chinese novelty should be adjusted to be a bit smaller as the size feels awkwardly big compared with the other keycaps.

very keen on these vibrant colours, but I agree the novelties feel a bit out of balance. I'd recommend ditching the leaf, maybe incorporating the seed/stone into the design as dark/negative space and adding some kind of outline around the skin. also agree with euro about resizing the Chinese character design. other than that though, very excited for the gb

Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely working to fix the novelties and add more.

this might more be a me thing, but the repeating deskmat with clashing bright tones strikes me as an eyesore. perhaps you could try a different design, like having a bunch of the berries hanging off of a tree off to the side of the mat in the same style? just my thoughts tho...

Cute set! I love lychees, but eating too many gives me mouth sores.

In terms of the IC, I recommend moving at least one picture out of More. Having to click More to see the base kit is weird and unintuitive. I think having just 荔枝 as your Enter novelty is a little uninspiring.

Consider the seed, the juicy flesh, the 荔枝干, the spiky exterior, etc etc. Lots of opportunities to be creative.

GLWIC! I like the color direction you're going, it's aesthetically pleasing.

I love lychee (the fruit)! Probably one of my favourite fruits!
This is a cool set. Looks like an inverse Bingsu, sort of. I'm probably in, depending on pricing.
Is there some thinking on rama caps? Rose gold lychee would be sweet.

Haven't really though about Rama caps, but AseroFoundry and I are planning to make a Pink Anodized key with a white laser-etched lychee.

Thanks for the update. That’s certainly welcome. Hopefully it’s colour matched. Would be nice if the keycap is two tone ie the colour of the lychee is different from the keycap.

On Rama, just a point that I’ve seen anodised/colour matched ramas with infill pictures, as well as gold/rose gold ones. I think the latter allows you to break from the need to colour match too tightly, and gives the keyboard a nice splash of shine. For example, citing a couple of my favourite keycap sets, GMK cafe ramas are colour matched, while GMK Olivia uses rose gold ramas.

For your consideration pls :)

I love lychee, it reminds me of juice I used to drink as a child!

The colors of this set are great! I do recommend working on the novelties more though and adding more designs. I like the concept, but the fruit novelty looks "a bit off." Not sure how else to describe it. Probably gonna pick up the base kit at least.

I'll work on it!

I love lychee, it reminds me of juice I used to drink as a child!

The colors of this set are great! I do recommend working on the novelties more though and adding more designs. I like the concept, but the fruit novelty looks "a bit off." Not sure how else to describe it. Probably gonna pick up the base kit at least.
I have more designs, planning to update the IC soon. Stay tuned!

I love it! just a suggestion though, add another color of alts? I like the red but maybe darker red/purplish would look cooler. I also think accents of green would look cool as well.

actually, the green sounds like a great idea.
maybe a green esc key. you know when you get a lychee with a small green on on top thats inedible?

So great that you decided to do 40s in base! However the 1.75 R2 backspace (one of the three keys suggested for base kit 40s compat) seems to be missing though.

Well 1, it's a little late, not sure if we would get quotes back in time, 2, we've already requested 3 rounds of quotes from GMK, so it's unlikely they'll give us more.

If I were ever to run a round 2, I would 100% have at least the 3 keys, or even a whole 40s kit.

I hadn't realized that I had forgotten to squeeze an extra tab into there. With just six days left until groupbuy, it's unlikely we'll be able to get another round of quotes and get pricing/moqs sorted out in time.

However, if I ever run a r2, I'll 100% be adding this key.

Why is the extra B in the base when I can't do a makeshift Alice layout with the rest of the base kit? Why is there no F13 anywhere?

The extra B is in the base kit because I had at one point had alice support in base, which I ended up removing, but never removed the B.

As for the F13, after reviewing quotes from GMK, I decided not to add an F13 to the base. Though, it's not out of the normal to see a set that doesn't have an f13. Many sets that run don't have it, and while yes, it's gotten more and more popular in recent times, I opted out of adding the key.

"Curious about the decision to go for the extra unnecessary B instead of F13 in the base though. Did no one else pick this up or mention it?"

Can't speak for F13 but there is immense pressure to keep base kit cost down. The extra B is for Alice users and there are probably more Alice users than F13 users who dont also wanna put a lychee nov in F13, and the rate at which it's a dealbreaker is probably also different. Why not put it in the spacebar kit? This adds a color to the spacebar kit and a doubleshot one at that. Per designers and people who get quotes and talk about em-those additions to the spacebar kit are several fold more in cost than it would be in base. My guess is there's another theoretical spacebar kit design that doesn't use the accent colors where the total 'bar kit cost is low and it was done differently.

^^^^

A quick clarification as to why the B can't just be swapped with F13. That would require me to add the B to the spacebars kits and get yet another round of quotes. If I had more time, the decision would be a no-brainer, but with this short amount of time left there's simply no way we can request another round of quotes and get pricing from vendors in time.

If you read my prior comment you would know this already, but the additional 'B' in the base kit is only useful if you have the additional shifts required in order to support Alice layout. If you don't have those shifts then the B is redundant. Makes sense? So the question becomes, why not make it F13 instead? Well, apparently there's a massive rush to get this thing out of IC and into GB. Better to rush a passion project than do it properly, it seems.

"Curious about the decision to go for the extra unnecessary B instead of F13 in the base though. Did no one else pick this up or mention it?"

Can't speak for F13 but there is immense pressure to keep base kit cost down. The extra B is for Alice users and there are probably more Alice users than F13 users who dont also wanna put a lychee nov in F13, and the rate at which it's a dealbreaker is probably also different. Why not put it in the spacebar kit? This adds a color to the spacebar kit and a doubleshot one at that. Per designers and people who get quotes and talk about em-those additions to the spacebar kit are several fold more in cost than it would be in base. My guess is there's another theoretical spacebar kit design that doesn't use the accent colors where the total 'bar kit cost is low and it was done differently.

If you read my prior comment you would know this already, but the additional 'B' in the base kit is only useful if you have the additional shifts required in order to support Alice layout. If you don't have those shifts then the B is redundant. Makes sense? So the question becomes, why not make it F13 instead? Well, apparently there's a massive rush to get this thing out of IC and into GB. Better to rush a passion project than do it properly, it seems.

"massive rush"

heh

This has been in IC for 6 months now, nothing is "rushed". Hell, a lot of sets make it to groupbuy with less than 2 months in IC nowadays. I think the simple fact is that kitting has changed several times which has led to some minor faults when it comes to kitting decisions. No need for toxicity, I've worked very hard on this set and many revisions have been made based on feedback and advice.  :thumb:
