This set looks really cool.

I don't want to spend more money!  Stop making such cool things!

My only concern is the numpad.

Does it not have an option for a blue + to match the rest?

I'm happy that you enjoy the set my friend, it's a pleasure to make something that you like.

Are you talking about the 1u "+" keycap? I can add it, sure.

Woops, yes that is what I meant.

My keyboard has a 1u + and - instead of the long 2u +, so I just thought it would look weird with them both being different colors.

I like the enormous novelty pack, which many people would like to have, mostly because of the meatball novelty.

100% agree. They look awesome and I'd imagine would be a fairly popular addon.



Whoa, these look really nice. They should definitely be an option.


Do you guys believe we should do something like the Asiimods and Blumods from Sci-Fi?

Since this is the case, I'll add the blue "+" 1u mate.

MiTo, the set looks amazing! Loving the color scheme, and I hope you decide to leave it as is!

Cannot wait for this drop! That being said, what do you think the ETA for production time from GB time will be for this set?

I think you should add some more color to the base. Maybe a some of the yellow and red keys that you have on the novelties kit, move them to the base kit?

Hey mate, thanks for coming by! Are you talking about any keycaps in specific?


Maybe just a yellow esc and enter key

Look for the Sci-Fi keyset that I made last year.

For these colors there is the Novelty Pack.

Thank you very much mate! Production will take place by the end of February, this will ship ~8 weeks after it.

Pricing won't be a problem, the main thing is one set being focused and the other one splitting the sales. This used to be an issue on PMK days, but with Massdrop I don't think so. The thing is that I'll have to offer everything blue also in red. Otherwise people will complain. I'm also not a huge fan of offering two sets at the same time.

Ares Program as a future addon?

Ah, that so different color addons. Works perfectly! I'll keep watching this thread, like many others.

Yep, better to focus this mission first and maybe next time could be the perfect time for Ares.

Is the 6.25u spacebar included in the base set and is the 7u spacebar included in the tsangan set?

The Base kit covers a standard TKL keyboard, which means that it has a 6.25U space bar included.

Tsangan doesn't include a space bar according to the mockups.

So if I buy a standard kit, a  tsangan kit, and a bar kit, I'd have 2 6.25u spacebars and 1 7u spacebar?  I guess I'd use 1 6.25u spacebar for FC660m stem modding.

Agreed my friend, we will see what happens.

modding.


The Basic Kit definitely comes with a space bar but the Tsangan kit doesn't. Here's why: if you look closely, the White Fox pack also doesn't feature a space bar even though people who chose the Winkeyless layout will need one. I'm not offering 7u space bars in the Tsangan/White Fox kits because I want this group of customers (Tsangan and Winkeyless White Fox) buying and making volume to the Bars child deal pack, therefore making it easy to tip. In case you don't know what the White Fox is, it is a custom keyboard created by the great Matt3o that was sold last year by Massdrop. Below you can see a picture of it's Winkeyless layout.


However, this format is open for discussion and I'd like to hear your (and others) opinion(s) about it. In case we keep such decision, I'll make sure to state on the mockups that neither of the kits will come with a 7u space bar, to prevent unsatisfied customers and future complaints.

I'm fine with the child deals the way they are.  Thanks for the explanation!

Left shfit is 1.25? That can't be right.

Matt3o might have used the same file for all the layouts, that's a 2.25 Shift, not 1.25. The 1.25U might be from the ISO Layout

Zambumon is correct, that shift size was a mistake from Matt3o's end when he presented the White Fox Winkeyless mockup. I apologize for not noticing it before, but that's indeed a 2.25u "SHIFT" keycap.

They are stretched a little bit, I lost quality because I stretched the whole image too much.

I will provide a better image with the child deals tomorrow.

I made them in mid/early December and it was a combination of lightning, textures that gives that impression since the sculpting is exactly the same that SP has published in their resource files, I've improved all of them and now it looks much better. That being said, those renders would look way more rounded if I used glossy materials (which has been done by others before)… but that wouldn't be accurate at all.



Renders aside, I'm pretty confident that the set will look 2~3 times better in real life, specially with novelties.  :eek:

I know what you did there…

Jukebox-->50s
Godspeed-->60s
1976-->70s

The idea behind the set is to make your keyboard look like something from the 60's NASA. Therefore the faded tones and retro feel. The child kits will be available separetly, but I'd recomend you to get at least the Basic Kit too.


Well, I'm not too keen on spending money on something I don't really like - but if the price isn't too high I still might get a full set, just to have it complete.
We'll see, I guess.

The tops don't seem to curve inward enough compared to real caps.

I think it may be the lighting?

That's because Pebumbra is R3.

I'd love to see a red version of this! Personally I'm not a big fan of the pale blue mods, but I would totally pick this up if it was red. As long as it's <100 for a TKL set, I think it's a great idea.
