Hey everyone !
Thank you for taking your time to check out my newest keyset - MW Alfheim


If you are interested please consider filling the IC Form
_________________________________________________________________________


Inspiration/Colors:

The set was inspired by "Alfheim" the land of light elves in Norse mythology.
I tried to mimic their beauty and the magic that comes with it through this set
More
I used the grey-ish white to mark the incomparable beauty of elves
The pastel turquoise to show the greenery in Alfheim while also giving off a dream-like state
The purple is used to accompany the fantasy effect given by the turquoise

Nice set! The main area of improvement I can see is on kitting.
-both alt mods and alt alphas assume that someone is purchasing base and are lacking a lot of keys for those who may want to pair mods with alt alphas
-sb kit is unnecessarily bloated and can either be split or simplified
-40s kit seems designed to fit both alt mods and base - just pick one, since 40s users should be pairing your 40s kit with alt alphas, not base

There are other, smaller details on kitting - feel free to reach out to me on discord. I'm sure with some kitting changes it can be a fantastic set!

I am really looking forward to see how their quality turns out, always excited to see new manus jump into the fray, although I wish there would be more diversity. As it stands right now we have 1 from the US, 1 German, and 999999 Chinese...

I don't know milkyway's price or moq structure but if the price is low this is fine, if not but MOQ is accommodating there could be two 40s mod kits

Hey,thank you for the feedback !
I will surely fix the alt altphas ASAP
Speaking about the spacebar/40s kit, both of them will be on the lower end of the pricing so most probably will remain as it is !

Its alright, but that signature and deskmat have such a low resolution that I am starting to suspect you just took it from google images.

Hey o/
Thank you for your time and concerns but I really do think the image presented in the render is in fact a high quality illustration (but please let me know more about what happened to give you question marks)
Speaking about the siganture I specially edited it to make "MW Alfheim" more legible and to attract more attention
Speaking about google images I kinda think it's a weird thing to say especially since I linked the instagram page of the designer

Hope that cleared everything out !

This is potentially my perfect kit, one thing I would love to see is a 1.5u Super key for HHKB compatibility.

Also much appreciated having ISO-UK in base!

Not familiar with MilkyWay.  Are their mini-spacebars convex profile like a proper spacebar?

I wish to see more numeric keypads with secondary legends for arrow and nav functions.  Seems out of fashion now, but some of us do still find use for those.

I keep wishing for some set to include a Compose key, but I guess I can always use a novelty for that.

Hey o/
The spacebars are indeed convex !!
Sorry for the arrow legends but I don't quite intend to change anything as many people are already familiar with the current design

add r3 pipe and r4 >< keys to alt alphas and see if you cant add white f keys to the alphas or something so buyers can just buy alt alphas and alt mods if they want. Set looks great! GLWIC :thumb:

While I did add the f keys (thank you for suggestion) I can't really add either <> or the pipe since I am going for full UK Iso instead of the therminal,hopw you can understand  :thumb:

would be a good idea to add >< key to base to fully support terminal iso, and then remove it from norde
