[IC] xPBT POISON -- Update: GROUP BUY DATE ANNOUNCED
« on: Thu, 15 April 2021, 17:32:08 »
Hello everyone!
I would like to introduce a set I have been working on for quite awhile


The inspiration for this keycap set was a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of toxins, poisonous gas, and hazardous materials.
Instead of going for more of a chaotic theme for these keycaps, I decided to give it a more modern and clean touch.
The result of these ideas gave way to my latest creation...

I made it alpha colored out of my own personal preference. I wanted to see if others liked it as well. If a majority of people prefer the backspace to be colored I wouldn't mind changing it.

I'll consider those manufacturers, but I prefer PBT since ABS shine overtime.

Lol it seems like the coloring is throwing a lot of people off. I'm aware that the colors for some of the keys aren't traditional (as many have pointed out the alpha colored backspace) but I personally like the colors to be like this. If the community prefers the traditional mod and alpha coloring then I will change it as needed  :D

PBT user. Not simon memer. And reverse dyesub almost always has size shrinkage, warpage and coloration issues. It sucks, but that's just the way it works.

Not the worst and glad to see PBT. I’m not sure that the poison apple fits in with the rest of the novelties. Just kind feels off with a post-apoc poison/hazard theme. Also not a big fan of the deskmat design. Always love green tho!

I see thanks for the insight. I'll most likely convert to ABS keycaps then.

was going to fill out your ic but you get no email addy. so sorry but i'm a luddite.

was going to tell you the set looks really good imo and i think it captures your vision of a toxic wasteland. personally i'd be more likely to consider if you add to R4 two 1.5u super and another 1u alt. yeah, i'm a mac user and this is a selfish request. (there are a lot of really good green sets right now and i'm a bit conflicted.) feel free to disagree with me or even ignore. it's your set so you do you.

Hi, I have some feedback:
_ Base: Please consider changing mod color tilde and pipe in the 61 layout to alpha color (you already had these keys in mod color below in the extended part of base kit) and remove the alpha Esc and alpha tilde in the extended part. Please also consider changing Backspace to mod color and adding a mod color F13 key. Last, the R4 pipe key "\|" should be removed since you already had a R4 "<>" key for iso usa.
_ Novelty: The anime-girl-in-mask novelty seems out of place due to the rest of the novelties are all symbols of hazard. If you want to have a human-in-mask symbol, I would suggest a neutral humanoid figure. Can you add accent iso enter novelties for the iso community please?
_ Space-bars: I think people would go with mini alpha space-bars over accent ones, so please consider adding mini bars if you plan to keep the accent ones.

I love this! I love the color set!

But it would be great if you could add an AZERTY support. I do not know why many people avoid these AZERTY sets (I suppose it is because the demand is not high enough) but we are always left aside and I keep keep missing great keycaps due to that.

So in a nutshell this is a 'maybe' that could be transformed into a 'Yeah I am in' if AZERTY is included.

Moreover my Gamertag is Toxine so maybe this is an additional incentive for you to design it  ;)

Anyway great job so far and GLWIC

Gotta say I prefer the backspace as alpha. It just looks cool to see the black draining down, seems to fit the theme.

I am getting a lot of 90's Captain Planet nostalgia from this set. :D

I said this in the /r/mk post, but I hope you consider adding 40's in the near future.  If you're the manufacturer we'd love to get more 40's options available.

We will definitely consider 40's in the future, as of now there are no molds made for some of the keycaps found in the 40's kit.

You really need to check whether this is feasible with manufacturers.

There are also some alignment issues with your renders.

So you spent time deciding on a manufacturer, and then realized that you own a company that manufactures keycaps? Is this XODIA's first keycap set?
