[IC] KAT Subtitles - Project on Pause
« on: Thu, 22 April 2021, 03:28:38 »
Quick disclaimer: This set is definitely going to be a drastically different approach from my other sets as it will likely sit in IC for a LONG time if everything does not go smoothly. With how KAT sets kit and how much I have to refine the files, this will likely take a back seat as it gains more traction/eyes/feedback. I am genuinely using this as an "interest check" rather than immediately planning how to get this into GB stage. I want to see the interest of the concept before moving further!



Are you tired of the Eastern-influenced keycap sets? Tired of weebs and koreaboos?
 Well, I am too! But you know what they say... if you can't beat them... Join them!

If interested... I really need IC feedback in forms for this one

I present to you a set that relies on what they both need in their lives: Subtitles!
To be specific...

KAT Subtitles



Kits
More
[Weeaboo]


[Koreaboo]

need to resize some characters

[Icon Mods]


[Icon Mods with Subs]

a bit too cluttered, will revamp

[Accents]


[Spacebars]


[Numpad]


[ISO]


Because it is KAT... THERE WILL BE MORE KITS... 40s... ISO... other weird layouts... lmk what you want in IC form
Will 100% add:
[Icon + Subs Mod]
[40s/Ortho]
[UK-ISO]
[ISO w/ subs]
[Numpad w/ subs]
[Accents w/ subs]
...



Renders
Most Variants
More
Hiragana for Icon + Subs // Hangul for Icon

Appreciations

Myself







okay... on the real though, I need to see if people are actually interested in this, so IC form is going to be a tad longer than usual...



What's next?
[Make sure GMK Stargaze successfully reaches GB first]
[Not fall behind in academics]
[KITTING WILL NEED A HUGE UPDATE]

Yes.
Not a fan of full icon mods tho

Just to address this before I get off for the night. When I originally thought of the idea, I was actually going to go with full text mods and follow the same plan of "Enter" in Hiragana/Hangul followed by "[Enter]" on the bottom right of the key; however...
1. I am beyond uncultured and will 100% rely on google translate. That will likely not translate right on keys like Shift, Tab, CapsLock, etc.
2. Even on Hiragana/Hangul layouts, they use text mods like "Esc, Tab, Shift, CapsLock, Ctrl, etc." as well, so it felt like I was going "too far"?
3. If I introduce more alphas kits (which 99% will happen), Icon Mods just keeps it easier for kitting (or else we'd be going with 50 Alpha kits and 50 mod kits).
4. Latin Text is an option, but it just feels out of place (imo)
5. Iím a simp for icon mods

Love this idea and love the icon mods look. Oh and as a native speaker of an Asian language I can confirm Enter, Shift, Caps, etc. do not exist in my language. We just call it the English word, so someone here who knows Japanese and Korean could confirm whether thatís the case as well.

I actually love this!  If there is support for JIS, I'd definitely be in.  JIS support would actually be quite a lot easier than usual since you don't have symbols on the numeral keys.  I threw together a first pass at what such a kit might look like here; happy to talk through it further here, via DM, or on Discord (kidviddy, I just joined your server).

Something like this?

I'm down lol. May need to shrink some text for ctrl/alt/super/menu and stuff for it to fit, but I'll just make it consistent.

I would like a English only set of this. So basically just regular English legends inside a bracket.
Hope that this doesn't completely defeat the point of the set. I just feel like it is a good opportunity for a creative English alphas set.

There will 100% be more compatibility. With something so "different," I wanted to see if it would get positive feedback first and actually using it to collect interest checks instead of grabbing vendors first and skipping that part.

I added to the IC kits that will 100% be added (UK/new mods/40s/orthos)
I'm 90% sure Norde will also be added regardless of demand just because it's a staple.

Added:
-New Mods w/ Subs
-renders for the new mods (on Nemui)
-F13 (woops)
-Fixed Delete icon-ish

I may have to change the font size for the subs OR change the original icon mods to make the two kits more consistent. Sizing/alignment issues due to the amount of space per key!
Update kits that are 100% add (for now), but likely will be more.

I kitted to not combine kits to make an all-in-one set :(

I mean it's possible and won't exactly do anything to me... but I like seeing combinations of people mixing what alphas with what mods

I went to fill out the IC to express that I dislike this set and I'm not sure you could do anything to fix it so that I'd like it. Only option is "yes" for buy. So here's my interest check: no

Idk many people who fill out an IC form who aren't interested (since I'm looking for feedback from people who are interested as they're the ones who care).
I added that question with an actual yes/no in previous IC's and it's a pretty pointless question to add, so I just put it here this time for fun.

but to respond to your statement... uhhh okay.
