Hi, We have received your ideas and opinions and we have make some changes on the kits and remake the renders. Also, We have a new IC Form, please kindly fill it out again.


Major Kit Changes:

2. Removed some keys on the novelties kit.
3. Fillets added on novelties designs
4. Made another set of Numpad with different colors, and thinking about combining one of them into the Base kit, please tell us which do you like in the IC Form.

Again, this is our first time participating in a keycap project, we appreciate every response. Those feedbacks have let us improve.

【4/4/2021 : Small Update】

Hello, we had received a lot useful and helpful suggestions just within the first day. Therefore we had the following updates.
1. Novelties :  We are definitely going to review the design (adding fillets so it contains no sharp corners etc.), it will be made to fit GMK's custom keycap set guide. There will be minimal aesthetic impacts.
2. Renders : We will remake all the Rendering.  We will make the update later on, as some design details still need to be confirmed and the rendering rework will take some time.
3. Numpad set : We received some comments on the Numpad colour scheme, if you have any other suggestion, feel free to use the IC form to tell us. 
4. Japanese Alphas : Japanese Alphas is an option under our consideration, also, feel free to use the IC form to tell us what you think.

It is our first time making keycap related works, any suggestions and comments are welcomed. Thank you for your advises and patience to let our work become better.

I'm not sure if the colors of the alphas or mods exactly makes me think of falling leaves... hmm..

Good luck with IC though

Interesting colors, but do the novelties kit have anything to do with the "inspiration"? Also novelty using your group's logo is a bit much.

Dakota felder files are not IC ready. Carefully take a look at your renders

Hello we we we.

Thks for rendering GMK trashtray like it's a feature.
You should have spent more time doing nice renders for the keyset.

I have some very serious concerns.

none of the novelties are possible, they all have sharp corners
The kitting is interesting to say the least, and the renders aren't the greatest.
I appreciate the hustle you "guys" have put into the set, but i don't think it's quite ready for IC even, let alone a planned GB date.

instead of being toxic, you could've given better and more constructive criticism. Nothing to say? Shut that yapping mouth of urs.

OP, dont mind them and keep on improving ur set!   :thumb:

I think the novelties are a good, interesting concept: blending the alphas color into the mods color. But if they're not physically possible as-designed, that's definitely a dealbreaker.

Kitting needs a good bit of work and so do the renders. I would suggest to not use felder files for IC too....
No numpad in base is not the smartest move unless you are targeting a high moq.

The novelties look like the failed doubleshot rejects you'd get in grab bags.

Mod colored spacebars look like chinstraps. I highly recommend changing them to alpha colored spacebars. Also what's the reasoning behind removing the numpad from the base kit? It really doesn't have as much money as you think it does, I'd look into moving that back into the base kit. I also see other people commenting on the renders, you might want to look into someone who does renders for other sets, better renders will help market the set a bit more. Dakota Fielder renders are extremely obvious as they have jacked up legends. It's not a great look to start an IC off with these renders anymore. GL with the IC.

I personally think the colors clash a bit too much. That being said this is a really well done IC compared to most of what we have been seeing on GH. Great job.
This and the swiss cheese keyboard is the next generation of keyboards
