[IC] DSA Freshly Minted (Please take survey)
« on: Sun, 19 March 2017, 22:30:38 »

3/22/17 - Added Mint modifier kit, and slightly changed some kits as to not have as many duplicates
Also I have added made a Survey, that I would love all of you guys to take in order to get feedback.


SURVEY
https://goo.gl/forms/50rsu4VzW2AB12Su1


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3/21/17 - Hey guys, update here. So I took some time and made some rough child kits, but I need your guys feedback on which caps should be added, and which caps should be tossed. If there is a cap in a kit that you think should be there, then by all means let me know and I'll try and accommodate as many people as possible.

Will be posting a survey soon, so keep your eyes out for that

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi all, here is an interest check for a Midnight & Mint type keyset (dark grey/blue & mint).
I was looking at my phone one day (Nextbit Robin) and really liked the design and colors of it. That color combo has been one of my favorites, and was wondering if there were others out there too.

This is just an interest check to see if enough people like the colors, and also if people are okay with the colors, ex. it doesn't look too much like HyperFuse or LightCycle.

I personally think the mods definitely look a bit like HyperFuse but I am not a big fan of the purple for that set, but I'd love to get a discussion going on this.

So without further adieu...

DSA Freshly Minted (Name TBD)

Regular TKL (Regular Alphas + TKL Modifier kit + Mint Accent Kit)


Midnight TKL (Midnight Alphas + TKL Modifier Kit + Mint Accent Kit)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Regular Alphas


Midnight Alphas


Minty Accent Kit


TKL Modifier Kit


Numpad Kit


Planck Kit


Ergodox Kit


Non-Standard Modifier Kit


ISO Kit

What happened with DCS?

Im not opposed to changing profiles however I don't think it would look good in SA, I'm down for other suggestions though.

You'll most likely get interest if it's an appealing colorway (with some requests to turn it into GMK instead).  It's just entertaining listening to some on hear rant about DCS like it's the keycap profile that kicked their puppy or such.

GMK got cheaper and lowered their MOQ

i ****ing love dcs and everyone gets their panties in a twist about it

can be had for similar prices to JTK with proper legends and a much faster turnaround

This looks like royal navy with a different return keycap.

This is a good looking set and I'm all for more DSA sets coming around. I assume these would be ABS since SP can't do double-shot PBT?

If I had it my way I'd definitely go PBT, but yea if it were to go DSA it would be double shot ABS.

At the risk of backlash, I too would be down for DCS...

Mind you I'm a fan of most profiles

I really really like this set, but the profile is up for question.

If this set has a nice ErgoDox child set, I think it should be DSA.
Otherwise, I could really see this in DCS or GMK. I agree this shouldn't be a SA set.

Hi all, just wanted to update you guys that I have added some child kits, so if you guys could let me know how they are so far, and what keys should stay/add and which ones should go.

Thanks

My first set was Jukebox back in the day, and I really liked how he set up the kits, because it made it super affordable to those like me who use a 60% (Out the door $70). So hopefully I can do a similar thing, but SP's prices have gotten disgusting in the past few months, and getting a keyset from them under $100 seems like a pipe dream now.

and I'll definitely try and add in the mint Tsangan kit

Icon modifiers will go well with arrow keys. Also Mac ⌘ and ⌥ keys would be nice.

Are we set on stem type? Part of me is itching for this to run with Alps stems. I feel like the market is in need of a good alps set.

.... just an idea

Eh I don't know.
Seeing as how the Light Cycle Alps didn't do amazing I'm very hesitant to do anything other than MX.

I know the kits are different but still I just don't think there is a big market for Alps.

If you can find me ~75 buyers then I'll definitely give it a shot.

I won't touch light cycle because I simply hate sets that are all or nothing. Optional sets are great because you can buy what you need. So you got that going for you  :thumb:
