[IC] ePBT Avilo - Pricing Announced
« on: Sun, 18 July 2021, 16:04:17 »
Welcome to the IC for EPBT Avilo!
Creme and I have been working on this set for months now. After being burnt out we got demotivated for a while, we finally pull through and have started working on this set again. We really hope you enjoy this set as much as we have enjoyed the struggle of making it!



This set takes most of it's inspiration from the Spanish city called "Ávila", and the name for this set is taken from the Esperanto translation — Avilo.
We came upon this city while researching historical Spanish places and the town's beauty really pulled our breath away with it's beautiful buildings, but especially it's walls.
We were enamored by the rustic Spanish town with it's breathtaking buildings and captivating city walls. We instantly knew that we wanted to capture the beauty of this world's treasure and channel it into this keycap set.

19TH NOVEMBER 2021 - 19TH DECEMBER 2021



When seeking feedback internally amongst friends, it was brought to our attention that our set may have been reminiscent of GMK Noel; although we believed our theme and vision were different, we preemptively reached out to (Cutéshy), and they responded cordially and acknowledged and approved our set. We are thankful for their helpful feedback.

Beautiful set. The last two of the Aerea mods look like they could be made more vertically central.

Absolutely adore the deskmat. Good luck with the IC!

Please don't force accented spacebars in the base kit. Replace the current 7u spacebar with a white one or have both in the base kit like with the 6.25u bar.

F13 should be in the base kit.

You don't need R1 'PgDn' and 'End' in base if you've got them in the numpad kit.

I like the colors, but I have some concerns:
-why do the keys be floatin' like that?
-kitting could be better, especially 40s
-because novelty kitting has no rows listed i have no idea what is supposed to go where
-please add key sizes to all your kits, especially spacebars

This has potential, keep working on it! :thumb:

Hi, thanks for fixing some issues in the updates!

On the kitting:
-please remove accent spacebars from base. If you are going to keep it, at least swap the color in the render with the alpha colored spacebar.
-The atlantiko kit is confusing. Is it an alt alphas kit? is it a mods spacebar kit? I'm not sure how much customer overlap you'd get between both of those
-00 above 0 in numpad is aesthetically cursed
-I am confused by some of the icons in your 40s kit. Also, please change esc to icon for consistency. Also add R1 Esc pls
-offering only accent esc in 40s but no accent enter feels  :(
-new novs are great, but it feels like you only wanted them to be used on a macro column? I can't use them for any normal mod-colored 1u, which is disappointing. If you want to offer the alpha colored 1us just offer them as an extra macro column kit, and make the ones in the current novs kit mod colored.

If I didn't like the set I wouldn't give such detailed nitpicks. I hope to see further updates!

Love the colors on this one! Reminds me of pink skies that I don't see all too often. Interested in how the alt alphas look on a board if you have any renders~

Taking inspiration from a Spanish city and not including ISO-ES support really makes me sad, ñ does exist :(

Any chance we can get ISO-ES layout support when the GB opens? That would be fantastic!

Hi.

I would like to point out a few problems in the "Vojagi" kit. It seems to be a "Norde+ES" kit, but:

- Support for German is incomplete: the keys 2"² (R1), 3§³ (R1) and <>| (R4) are missing.
- Support for Danish is incomplete: ◌́◌̀| (R1) and <>\ (R4) are missing.
- Support for Norwegian is incomplete: \◌̀◌́ (R1) is missing.
- Support for Swedish/Finnish is incomplete: <>| (R4) is missing (same key as in German).
- Those four layouts sport a numpad comma, not a numpad period. This would be a fine addition to the kit.

- Support for Spanish (Spain) is problematic:
* In R1, ºª\, 1!|, 3·#, 4$~ and 6&¬ are missing. 7/, 8(, 9) and 0= (without a tertiary legend) are also missing.
* ◌̀◌̂[ and +*] appear in R1 but are actually part of R2.
* ◌́◌̂{ and Ç} appear in R2 but are actually part of R3. Note also that the C with cedilla appears as a lowercase in the render (should be uppercase: Ç, not ç).

HTH!

Sorry, we didn't get to add french support as we are afraid it would increase the cost

Could you please change the kits?
Now the 6.25u and 7u blue spaces are only included in the Atlantiko kit, while I don't need the blue alpha area. So could you please move the blue spaces to the base kit or Salti kit?
And as far as I'm concerned, the 6.25U and 7U blue and pink spaces should be included in the base kit, instead of selling separately in different kits.
I love this set, but the kit arrangement makes me buy a lot more keys that I don't need and discourages me from buying this set.
Thanks for reading.
