Man this set is beautiful. It has purple so I approve.
2021 GB? :3


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Well, if number stacks up why not?
I am working on some more perks!

What do you guys think?

Thank you for all you advices anyway  :cool:

thank you for adding the second 2u space! just to be sure those 2u spaces are all convex ones, right?

for me this is the best set of 2020 so i’m gonna definitely buy it.


Sure, convex 2u spaces. I think having a "complete" 40s is better even if more expensive.

Thank you for your support 
Jajajaja I need this set. Just keep it for 2021 and I’ll have a job and get a couple. :3

First of all, thanks for the love guys  :-*

Based on the suggestions here i reworked the 40s and the spacebar kit:

40 per 100
- dropped support for 1.75u spacebars;
- added preonic and planck magenta esc and magenta enter - Thanks to gex to address this on Discord!;

Linee
- dropped support for 1.75u indacus spacebar;


Here are the kits, going to update the OP soon




EDIT:

I need numbers on the IC Form! Let me know if you have any suggestions or what you would buy or not!

I've updated the IC with a question about the dark numrow in the base, alternativo or extra kit.

You may want to include a 1.25u space key as well. It's commonly used when splitting space (e.g. 6.25u → 2.75u+1.25u+2.25u), in Alice layouts etc.

Despite the fact that R4 enter and R3 esc are the “default” layout options for Planck and preonic, it is not the popular placement for those keys. Most Planck and preonic users (that I know anyway) still use esc on R2 and enter on R3.

In my opinion, you should drop the magenta accent keys altogether. This is a worthwhile change to keep prices reasonable for the 40% community.


Edit:
The other thing to bear in mind is that folks who do purchase the 40% kit may not have Planck or preonic in mind. Meaning there is even less reason to include accented keys for the default layout for two specific keyboards.

For example, those accented keys won’t work with a prime_e or a minivan.

I know but i can't give support to specific layouts for specific keyboards so having only two accent keys for the most popular ortho keebs out there it's kinda fair i guess! For all the others, there are the indacus keys :)

The minivan can work with the ESC accent, am i wrong?

That’s the exact point I am making.

It does not make sense to include magenta accents for basically just Planck users, so you should remove magenta accents altogether to make this kit as cheap as possible.

The minivan uses a R2 esc (not R3).

Leaving out the two 1.75u spaces and putting in two magenta keys is a good balance i guess. I can add another r2 ESC magenta key too, it shouldn't be that expensive!

Anyway, i am going to update the spacebar kit with 1.25 space in the next few days


ZF,please,zf is cheaper and faster

Did you have any problems with iLumkb?

Hello guys! A bit of an update! I am working on the set (slowly) checking out the numbers on the form.
It seems like people want the "dark" row on the base and not on the Alternativo kit. This will make the base kit more expensive but it's what the majority of you ask, so i'll work it out somehow.

Another update is that i finalized the mousepad designs and i am in contact with the manufacturer. I will maybe run the mousepads before the set: what do you guys think about it?

I am going to update when i have estimated prices and proxies, then i'll show you protos (i want the colors to be accurate).

I am going to drop here my latest renders as a gift:

Really love the colorway, not a huge fan of the monochromatic alphas and mods; would be hard to pass on a base kit with the Alternativo alphas in it, but my opinion.

Regardless, I'm in for a deskmat or 2!

I think if you're considering an extra kit for a dark number row, it might be worth rearranging kits so that the base kit has the dark number row and the Alternativo kit has a purple number row and potentially purple modifiers. However, this would of course take away the beautiful colour contrast in the base kit. Purple modifiers are something I'd be interested in, in any form.

Thank you so much man! I am going to try to post a purplish translucent keeb render with a HHKB layout soon, but i don't have the Kara model :D

I am thinking about reworking the kits to make sure they reach moqs eventually :D
I already have a manufacturer for the mousepads, i am just waiting for the right moment!

As i told before, i am thinking about reworking the kits to make the "smarter" and maybe less expensive. Every feedback is appreciated so thank you for your point of view!
Purple modifiers are a bit difficult to place in, i need to be sure every kit can reach the moq!

I'd love to see a render of this keycap set on top of the NK65 Entry Edition (Purple)

Maybe not the NK65 (i don't have the models and it need time to remodel the keeb with the moulds in it) but i can try with something purplish and translucent  :thumb:

The white Add-on kit looks cool and gives the set a different look.

Thank you! A lot of people asked for this in the IC Form and after a bit of looking at the set with white alpha, i liked it actually :)

The second more requested "feature" is a dark number row. I could add it to the base kit but it would be really big with all that keys.
What do you guys say?

This is a render of it:

Show Image


I updated the IC Form so if you guys want this kit in the base or as an extra just let me know!

Yes. Love the dark number row! Honestly, I prefer the same color number row for the white alphas as well. If that's a possibility? Either way, awesome set. Most likely in for both the black and white alphas.

What's your choice between OG top left aligned icon mods and centered aligned icon mods? In the first renders they seem centered, while in the last ones they are OG.

Bella l'idea delle magliette e stupendi i tappetini comunque. Mi fa piacere vedere qualche collega italiano in giro da queste parti  :thumb:

Actually i am liking the left aligned more (i think it's more consistent), You're right i ditched the centered icons in the latest renders but it's not definitive. I'll post a comparative between the two icons later!
