Spacebar kit for Alice?

In the works, will be added. :)

amazing renders by liz! though i feel you should probably include acknowledgements to the creators of the boards used in your post

You're right, thought I already did that oops

It was already there, under special thanks to

I also spoke to DrHigsby and he helped me kitting, after this is finished the pricing quote will be updated.

Also requested some greener samples, hopefully those will come soon.


Estimated GB date is 1 June :)
I think they meant list the name of the boards and their creators not whoever did the renders./
Yeah I'm gonna have to ask... What is that first board? Lol

Edit: for anyone wondering, the first board is the M011Y https://thekey.company/products/m0lly?variant=30337112997977

Are there going to be arrow keys in the base kit, I ask because the renders donít have any keebs with arrow keys.

So far it looks like the Alphas Kit and the TKL Modifier Kit are separated.

I've been excited about this set for nearly a year. Of course, I've also been waiting for over a year for Keyreative to make my first order of KAT keycaps. KAT Arctic better arrive before this set goes group buy, and it better be amazing so I can justify ordering KAM Ocean Front.

all I can say is if you have the funds available to buy a few extra kits for resale - good investment

Yup, they will be in the TKL kit! (Icon+Text)

YES!
After the quote gets updated, I will announce the date. But 100% in June!

I contacted a vendor, hopefully it will work out. :)

The colours are set in between both versions, in the original post you can see the samples + pantone matching.
I personally really like how they came out, and 100% match with the colours I asked for!

Any plans for a discord to keep up with the project?

Yes, this will be included in the Groupbuy

Yes, they will! Final colours in the original post, with glossy samples incoming :D

Hi,

Please consider adding the u measurements to the kit renders: it is something I see some occasionally done and it is greatly appreciated. My ability to eyeball all the correct keycap measurements isn't perfect.


Looking to kit out a redox keyboard and I need 10 1.25u and 6 1.5u. Sadly the blanks kit doesnt feature 1.25u, but likely too late for that now.
My count is that a TKL mods and a Novelties gets me to that count, hopefully that is right  :D.
TKL mods has
  • 7 1.25u (left crtl sys alt, right alt sys menu ctrl)
  • 6 1.5u (left tab crtl alt, right alt ctrl bksp)

Novelties has
  • 3 1.25u (uhm... chain thingy, chain loopy thingie, and anchor thingy)
  • 1 1.5u (boat thingy)

which gets me the 10 1.25u and 7 1.5u I need to kit out.

That's probably something you should ask on a thread of the keyboard you're getting, because it can vary, even between Alice styles. Generally they are standard tkl sets though

Yeah sorry, I think I should revise the question, I did not find a spacebar kit in the kitting, or is it coming soon? It's 2u and 2.75u spacebar.

Oh wow yeah, that's a massive oversight. Didn't even realize because I was looking at this kit for someone else. Doesn't look like there is a spacebar kit at all. In this case, the best you can do is use the shifts/novelties. Not sure it would go with the gradient though

Uhhh good point! I also have the same problem, for my split keyboard I need a 2.25 U and 3 U spacebars (or blanks). Is it really too late for a spacebars kit? :'(

I don't think June's a good idea.. there is a ton of popular sets going down this month, and May was packed too. It would suck pretty bad, if after all the effort put into designing this set, if it did not meet MOQ.
Maybe i'm wrong, and that's the way every month will be going forward in this hobby, but I don't know..

there's a spacebar kit available for purchase on the keyhive page, at least.

I agree June is a bad idea, but my reasoning is more selfish. I'm still waiting on my first KAT order from May of 2020. It would be nice to see if Keyreative can actually deliver a quality set. With the quality control issues I've seen on every set released, I'm not sure I can put more money into a startup. That is what Keyreative is, a startup. They used the money from the first set of group buys to buy their equipment after their supplier failed to produce quality keycaps, but Keyreative is still having quality issues.   

When is GMK Ocean Front?   ;D

You're right, I had not looked at the vendors. It it really going live now? They say 1st June, but it's not online everywhere yet.

Kam wraith turned out pretty well. A couple of small issues but nothing I would consider terrible.

To be honest, I've seen more issues with GMK recently. I've had two GMK sets with oily-looking surfaces that can't be washed off

Am I missing something or should the 2u shift in the TKL kit be blue instead of brown? 2u left shift is (almost?) never on the right side of a board.

Hi Guys, Sorry for the one day delay. to compensate the GB runs till July 3.
TKL's, Ortho, and alpha's are updated to better suit the 40 kits. I also added a spacebar kit to support Alice.

Is there a diagonal alphas kit for ortho AND a straight alphas kit? Looking on Keyhive, all I see is the generic alphas kit (diagonal). Just want to confirm before I hit "buy". Or do I need to get the Ergo kit in addition to alphas to make it straight? Thanks!

Both sets are possible with a single ortho set (A+B) or (A+C)! :D
