[IC] PBT POISON -- (Updated: Novelties, Kitting & More!)
« 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.

Reverse dyesub in PBT means potential warping, higher prices. Why not consider JTK/GMK?

Really like the set btw!

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. Im 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.

Alright aright alright, another good-looking green cap set. As long as this set has all the proper support like Alice, 40s and F13, extra B cap on a few rows, etc., this is gonna get a hit out of the park.  :thumb:

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.

I put it there to ensure no one takes my design. I know it's out of the norm, but it puts me at ease.

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.
