I don't like those ones. There are plenty of non-specfic keys that you should be able to fill most of the layouts with them.

I'm mostly okay with the keys you've chosen. But I find R3 tab to be an odd choice over an R3 control.

However, seeing that there are very few "standard" ergodox layouts that people use (as many users prefer to make their own layouts to suit their own needs) - something along the lines of the novelty legends might make more sense, and reduce the amount of keycaps required for the kit.

A cost reduction and general compatibility increase while keeping the aesthetic is a win/win/win in that regard.

That's just the renders. We are color matching the plastic as close as we can to the GMK set. Once I have samples, I'll adjust the renders.

I feel pretty much the same way. I'd take generic/novelty legends over not having the right keys covered (like what godspeed MT3 did). Bottom row arrow keys are pretty universal though.

I'm definitely not a fan of that approach of using novelties for a modifier kit (when the rest of the kits use "standard" legends). I get why you'd want that, but I don't like it.

The rest of the set would have normal legends and the Ergodox would have some random ones instead. It wouldn't be consistent IMHO.

Yea I understand wanting to stay consistent. The issue is trying to cover even most of the ergo layouts out there would make the kit pretty large & expensive. I don't mind dealing with inconsistency since no kit will ever fully cover my layout, and it'll be inconsistent anyway. So personally I'm okay with either blanks or novelty legends.

I can’t imagine having so much ****in salt built up that you literally exclude 1 key from a set every single design you come out with.

Use this thread to complain about something missing. Like R2 1.75 backspaces on the 40s kit.

I can’t imagine having so much ****in salt built up that you literally exclude 1 key from a set every single design you come out with. 

You all need to get together and sing Kumbyah already...this is just stupid.

It's actually more, you are forgetting about a R4 2.25 Enter, R4 1.75 Lock... Anyways.

My response: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95882.msg2695276#msg2695276 and here https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95882.msg2695467#msg2695467

I will ask T0mb3ry if it's possible to add some salt novelties.

Again, they were renders.  But you’ll never be able to see past that, will you?  You, Olb, and T0mbry all need to check your egos at the door for once in your lives.  You link a post about screwing community members, but the only ones screwing people are you guys by excluding keys for certain boards. 

Your set, you do what you want, but I’m just saying you guys should just come together already and hash this stuff out so everyone in the community wins instead of being divided and being driven further apart...

Guys guys. Why you put black text on black colors? This is really a big mistake :( I need white font on black

Because this is a dyesub set, and the dyed parts need to be a darker colour than the background (and reverse dye-sub like other sets have done, where the background gets dyed, is more complicated and probably expensive).

I have one SA set with R4 bottom row and it does not feel right in same cases. My Preonic case has no angle at all. Is this not a bit uncomfortable to type on? The Ergo kit has R5 for the thumb cluster. Why not use R5 also for the Ortho/40s kits?

The ergo kit uses R5 because the thumb cluster is dettached and tilted compared to the rest of the keys. I also opted for R5 because it lets people swap the keys more easily.

40s will use R4, as the rest of the kits use that same row profile for the bottom row.

At least it’s in one kit so I can’t really complain. I don’t use ergo and it would be hard to sell the rest of the set with one missing key. As it stands, I would need 5 kits to cover one board. It would be nice to only have to buy 4 kits

Disheartening to see the ergodox modifiers are function-specific instead of being generic keys - like with the Oblotzky's assembly kits.

I don't like those ones. There are plenty of non-specfic keys that you should be able to fill most of the layouts with them.

I'm mostly okay with the keys you've chosen. But I find R3 tab to be an odd choice over an R3 control.

However, seeing that there are very few "standard" ergodox layouts that people use (as many users prefer to make their own layouts to suit their own needs) - something along the lines of the novelty legends might make more sense, and reduce the amount of keycaps required for the kit.

A cost reduction and general compatibility increase while keeping the aesthetic is a win/win/win in that regard.

I wholeheartedly agree with more generic legends. Like un_related said, it's a win/win/win.

I know it's a long shot, but would there be any chance to have some R4 1.25u keys added? My unigo66 has 4 1.25u keys and it'd help if I didn't have to buy a 40s kit to obtain them. I understand this is unlikely, but I had to at least ask  ;D

Unlikely. The kit is pretty much specific to Ergodox. I am aware that there are lot of split ergo boards out there, and I'm not keen on making a super huge Ergo kit.

I know that you already said no, but can we get a neutral-colored mod kit? Yellow doesn’t match with anything on my desk (but grey def will)
This is GeekHack, where we buy whole desk setups to match our keyboards - not the other way around.

On the home row, all eight of your fingers get their own homing key - assuming you get the plain Latin alpha kit.

Yellow plays a major role on this set. Sorry, but without yellow modifiers it wouldn't be Serika.

Yellow Katakana kit or no balls

No balls.

Can you include the Symmetry kit with the Alphas?  I really don't want spend $15 for 3 of the 6 keys in that set.  Looking at how MT3 Godspeed and XDA Canvas did on the Sym Kit, they didn't hit MOQ which means MassDrop would have to buy extra and just sit in their inventory to hoping that people will buy them for $25 during Re-Cap.

I agree that symmetries could be distributed into the other kits. Tilde could go into extensions and the 1.5u pipe key could go into alphas/modifiers, for example.

Also, no more square geometry novelty? I really liked that one.

Just noticed one thing that I would suggest; would you consider adding a yellow " key to either the Forties or symmetry kit? It's on the default Planck layout so I would guess that more folks getting the Forties kit would prefer it in yellow than white.

All those keys would go to their respective Core kit (so either Alphas or Katakana)

Drop (formely Massdrop) has some samples at their office that they were supposed to be shipped to me this week.

This is awesome! I've dabbled in Colemak DH and was super happy to see that support for it has seemingly become standard in MT3 sets (Susuwatari, Godspeed). Glad to see Serika is continuing this trend!

Your alternative layouts kit doesn't include various for colemak mod dh - the original mt3 set does.

Can you please add it?

Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
That kit covers Coleman, Dvorak, Workman, and Norman. If it's a modified version of Coleman, I think we would be going a little bit too far with that kit.
May I ask how Workman and Norman were chosen? It seems arbitrary to me, especially considering that mt3 had support for mod dh from the start, so you must have actively taken it away.

Or is it purely a matter of cost?

Edit - ignore me, I replied before seeing that you already added support.

1. I prefer to use the whole world if it there's enough room for it.

3. Agree.
4.
5. There's no tertiary legends for the international kit. Alt Gr only makes sense in that case.
6. Will think about it.
7. No.

Could you elaborate a bit as to why that this? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on it. Is it because Lock fits nicer in the key, or do you think that legend makes more sense in that context?

One question regarding the profile for the 40s. This is intended to be used for Planck/Preonic, right? How does the bottom row R4 feel. I have one SA set with R4 bottom row and it does not feel right in same cases. My Preonic case has no angle at all. Is this not a bit uncomfortable to type on? The Ergo kit has R5 for the thumb cluster. Why not use R5 also for the Ortho/40s kits?
Yeah, I wish that the ortho kit had R5 for the bottom row like dev/tty and godspeed. R4 is gonna feel weird.

The rest of the set all has R4. Doesn't make much sense to use a different row profile for a particular form factor.

These kind of request often happen with sets with a lot of kits, the more you offer, the more people ask for.

After some thinking about the yellow tilde and yellow R2 1U pipe keys, I am not going to add them. The current 40s kit is already at the limit of what I want it to be, adding more cosmetic keys (that is, that they do not provide any extra layout coverage) is something I'd not like to do.

What is it with the ugly font may I ask? I think we can do better than sticking with this basic font.
I knew it. I should have used comic sans instead.

Does it not make sense to for the spacebar kit to offer yellow and grey spacebars instead of cream and grey since cream is already part of the modifiers kit?

Good point. At least for the 6.25, 7U, and split bars.

Ergodox poll is closed. An overwhelming majority asked to change the legends for novelties (or something that wasn't specific) instead of having Ctrl, Alt, Shift…

The kit will be definitely smaller and I have an idea for the legends. If I have time, I'll post the new kit this week.

Extremely happy with all the alphas and grey accents.

Yellow mods are good too, but not that close. As we have the constrains of PBT and these aren't as vibrant as GMK Serika's ones. So I'll have to see if it's possible to get it closer or leave it as it is right now. The set would be great with these, so if we go with further color sampling it would just for the sake of making it a little bit closer to GMK Serika.

So GMK is a lighter yellow, but granite seems to be just as vivid in color. Next to GMK is MT3 TTY, which looks like poop compared to the other two.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190507/4acc6578bec3220fdeaf5ab8f0434f7f.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190507/58a6a8af601198f12337dd39bcaf736d.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190507/032c81ad56f868895774b67f4731b026.jpg)

I love the yellow in the GMK set, but I honestly might like this one even more. It’s really just a touch softer, which works so nice on a yellow, for me personally. In fact, your sample is making me wish there were a GMK equivalent now, too. It’s a relatively subtle difference, but it complements the creamy alphas so well.

I like the yellow. It's okay for the MT3 to have its own feel.

A brighter yellow would be fine but I think it is more important to get the contrast between the dark accent/legends and the yellow right. Also, making sure the legends are crisp.

I like the renders so far. It looks well balanced.

I backed out of GMK Serika when I saw the samples. I personally thought the contrast was too harsh.

But I do think I am being nitpicky. It is still beautifully designed.

I agree with a lot of what others are saying about the yellows. It's your set in the end but as it stands, I really like the softer yellow samples.

I'm not even sure if its worth printing legends on those black accents though lol.

It's gonna be like the OG Gameboy and finding the perfect angle of light to see in the dark.

They don't look as dark as the pic suggest. It will be similar to what we can find with Topre dyesubs.

- The font is not much different than the ones used by beamspring keyboards and I used IBM boards as a reference (with the exception of Katakana which is based on the typeface used by Olivetti for their Lettera 32)

- It should be similar to how Topre dyesubs are.

How about adding a R3 1u key like a generic "FN" or "CTRL" or "caps", ... to the Forties kit? Wondering what I should use for a Planck/Preonic there on the left. "tab" and "esc" are on R1 and R2 for me.
Will think about it. Worst case, you could get a  Novelties kit.

but then the legends wouldn't match reeeeee

Just to add in about the yellow color of the mods, I like it better as this new "softer" "creamy" yellow. Intense yellow is nice and all but this new yellow is not so in your face and blends in really well with the rest of the set. It just makes the set more uniform and refined. I feel like having a more intense yellow will contrast off on its own a bit and make it more look like a toy especially with the new profile.

I actually highly recommend that you stick with these but ultimately it is your decision as most people who already are interested in it would get it either way.

Anyways great job and looking forward to a set  :thumb:

Is it at all possible to have the split bars be convex, or make them R5 flat profile?  I know the molds probably don't exist, but having R4 split bars is the only thing I don't like about my /dev/tty set.

AFAIK MAC layout continues the F-Row beyond F12 across PRINT/LOCK/PAUSE and such, so a F13 F14 and F15 would make sense in the MAC kit I think? Would also give the opportunity to buy a F13 key for DK layout/Jane CE since you've already supported Alice double B. Although the Novelties Kit already supplies plenty of options for such a key.

I’m a Mac user, and if I ever decide to go bigger than 65%, I will definitely get the Novelties kit with those 1u media keycaps.
No Mac user would ever want to see F13 or 14 on their keyboards.
Hell, just seeing F1 to 12 was annoying enough.  That Novelties kit is a godsend.

Yes, exactly! This is the reason I want to buy this set _and_ a keyboard with F-row for it. This kind of novelties is much much more useful than the usual affair of pretty icons. Thanks Zambumon!

- UK and International Kit (Danish, Finnish, German, Norwegian, Portuguese BR, and Spanish)

Also, Swedish. Finland uses the Swedish layout.

Someone might not know this and not check the renders and not realize it supports Swedish so I'm just pointing it out :)

I was so looking forward to this, but where are the Alt Gr keys? At least put them in the ISO (or International) kit :( I mean for us, that's more important than having an Alt key.

Alt Gr keys are for accessing tertiary legends. Since the International kit only has secondary, there's no need for them.

First part is correct. But why are you telling me? I couldn't have typed my comment without knowing that.

I'm not sure I understand you. Not having all the legends on the cap doesn't mean it isn't really there if you actually press the key. You know this, come on man... Sorry if you were joking or something. You could have only one legend on the caps and still need the AltGr key.

To make @ I have to press AltGr+2. The fact that there isn't an @ symbol on the 2 key is not relevant.

This bothers me, because what key am I supposed to put where AltGr is supposed to be? Alt is wrong. I'd prefer a blank key or something that said something completely different, because Alt is so close but yet wrong so that makes it just annoying. The lack of an AltGr key has killed so many sets for me and I was really, really looking forward to this :(

So having an 'incorrect' 2 key is okay, but having an 'incorrect' Alt key is not? I don't understand how the lack of tertiary legend is totally fine but lack of Gr is a deal breaker.

The 2 key isn't incorrect, it's just doesn't show all the available legends. A stylistic choice. Alt is not a replacement for Alt Gr however. They are two completely different things and since Alt is just two letters away from Alt Gr it becomes annoying. I might as well put the Control key where Alt Gr is supposed to be then, because that's also wrong, but more obviously so, so you kind of "own it".

There's a legitimate reason not to put ALL the legends on the caps (it looks cleaner), there is NO legitimate reason to leave out an essential key.

Your reasoning is kind of like, well all the legends are capitals. So why would you need Shift?

„I'm not sure I understand you. Not having all the legends on the cap doesn't mean it isn't really there if you actually press the key. You know this, come on man...“

By this logic, all the keycaps should contain the sub-legends that are associated to the Alt Gr key, too....which I'm sure you are aware, they don't. If you have to look down at the Alt Gr key to know what key you're hitting, how are you going to know what key the alt is supposed to be tied to?

Your argument is dumb, and your analogy is even more dumb.

As Oblotzky has already answered, I'm not going to add an Alt Gr key, as there aren't any tertiary legends, which I do not plan to add them.

This is a rather funny story because I did include this keycap with GMK Nautilus and I was rightly called out for this inconsistency.

And you completely missed my point, too. It makes no difference if the key is marked Alt or Alt gr. If you need to look at the cap to know what it's supposed to do, wouldn't you need to look at the rest of the caps to know what they're doing, too?

strange font style

and don't you think the black legend on a black background is very unreadable?
- The font is not much different than the ones used by beamspring keyboards and I used IBM boards as a reference (with the exception of Katakana which is based on the typeface used by Olivetti for their Lettera 32)

- It should be similar to how Topre dyesubs are.

What does that have to do with anything? By that logic you could have Ctrl on Alt and Backspace on Tab. It's about the aesthetic. No, I don't need to look at the caps. But unless it's a kit filled with novelties I'd like my A key to say A and not X.

You guys... are you really trying that hard to miss my point? Alt is just two letters away from Alt Gr yet is a completely different key - so putting Alt on Alt Gr just feels wrong. It's so close but yet wildly incorrect. I'd much prefer a blank key or like "blah". Yeah, I'm a bit anal about it - so what... As I said, something completely different would have been better.

Like lol what, "there are no tertiary legends".. ok... how does that change anything? That doesn't magically turn the Alt Gr key into Alt. You still.. ah I give up.

OK. You are saying that Oblotzky's response was given with a "faux elitist condescending attitude" when he actually answered the question about Alt Gr.

Anyways, Alt Gr is meant to indicate that you are accessing the tertiary symbols layer on your keycaps. There's no point to include it if you don't offer those legends.

It was my preference, as the designer of the set not to include those tertiary legends on the international kit as well as Alt Gr for consistency reasons.

My understanding is that those issues were corrected in the second round of /dev/tty.  A third round of MT3 /dev/tty with weird kit options was listed on Drop today.  By the time they produce MT3 Serika, that should be their fourth round of dyseubbed MT3.  If you weren't aware of the second round of /dev/tty, you might want to take a look at the feedback (and pictures posted) for that round and see what you think.  I purchased most of my /dev/tty sets from the second round, but even the first round sets I picked up in a keycap recap are fine (quality was very inconsistent in the first round-- the sets I bought weren't the notorious failures).

Legends were reportedly often crooked, mis-aligned, and/or highly feathered on the first run of /dev/tty MT3 caps because the MT3 shape was difficult to dye sublimate on. Any word on if this has been resolved?

My understanding is that those issues were corrected in the second round of /dev/tty.  A third round of MT3 /dev/tty with weird kit options was listed on Drop today.  By the time they produce MT3 Serika, that should be their fourth round of dyseubbed MT3.  If you weren't aware of the second round of /dev/tty, you might want to take a look at the feedback (and pictures posted) for that round and see what you think.  I purchased most of my /dev/tty sets from the second round, but even the first round sets I picked up in a keycap recap are fine (quality was very inconsistent in the first round-- the sets I bought weren't the notorious failures).
Fifth. MT3 Godspeed is dyesub

Thanks it does! I was having trouble visualizing the difference between the creamy color of the alphas and more stark white of the boards being made. I appreciate it. I think it looks nice, especially the contrast between the white and yellow.

Got a second round of yellows that we made just to make sure we were as close as we can get given that we are working with PBT.

I prefer much more the first than the second round, so no point on sharing them.

Here are the colors we'll go with

Function and Macro. I didn't want to keep using L and R for those keys because I didn't want to have more than 10 L and R numbered keys, and I also wanted to make a separation since all those F and M keys are all on the same row.

- UK and International Kit (Danish, Finnish, German, Norwegian, Portuguese BR, Spanish, and Swedish)
- Colemak, Dvorak, Norman, Workman, Carpalx

- Super homing (it's just extra homing keys)
- Ergo kit
- Double B, you know for the Alice. Yes, there's a render of an Alice with MT3. Scroll down Puddsy.

If you add three more R3 keycaps to the Superhoming kit – homing "E" & "I" and regular "U" – QWERTY and all Typist-supported layouts could use middle-finger homing.  (No need for additional Katakana keycaps since there is no Katakana Typist.)

Edit: I missed that the Alphas kit currently does not include non-homing "F" & "J".  These two are needed for QWERTY middle-finger homing.  Best if they were included in the Alphas kit regardless, as some don't want homing keys at all.

Sorry Zambu, but I have to agree. I understand the L, R, F, and M now and it seems out of place for this colourway. Just seems a bit soul-less for a colourway that’s so organic and beautiful.  I hate to complain without adding anything though. I think a blanks kit for Ergodox would look really good, especially with the warmer sensual yellow that you’ve shown samples of.

^I'm inclined to agree, the only thing I'm reluctant about is the contrast between the white of the Milk U80-A (which leans more towards a pure, sugar white) vs. the very distinct off-white tone of Serika. I'm trying to picture it.

I'm thinking the Moon might actually pair up better, it's similar to the tone used in the Jules board render in OP.

With the current revision of the Ergo Kit, I rather have it blank than having those L and R, F and M.
Feeling like having a bunch of keys similar to F1 to F12 are just being lazy on the design, imo.

Sorry Zambu, but I have to agree. I understand the L, R, F, and M now and it seems out of place for this colourway. Just seems a bit soul-less for a colourway that’s so organic and beautiful.  I hate to complain without adding anything though. I think a blanks kit for Ergodox would look really good, especially with the warmer sensual yellow that you’ve shown samples of.

I'm not going to do blanks. I should have kept the initial kit I had and add some tweaks.

If you add three more R3 keycaps to the Superhoming kit – homing "E" & "I" and regular "U" – QWERTY and all Typist-supported layouts could use middle-finger homing.  (No need for additional Katakana keycaps since there is no Katakana Typist.)

Edit: I missed that the Alphas kit currently does not include non-homing "F" & "J".  These two are needed for QWERTY middle-finger homing.  Best if they were included in the Alphas kit regardless, as some don't want homing keys at all.

We are getting in a niche within a niche within a niche. The superhoming is meant to be as a novelty kit to the two alpha kits, if we go with that route, the kit should also cover international layouts.

Anybody able to render MT3 Serika w/ Katakana legends onto Rama's new U80-A TKL board in Milk and/or Moon? https://ramaworks.store/products/u80-a

Unsure whether this set would work well combined with the Milk colorway, or if it's better suited to Moon?

Black and white boards fit with every keysets in general. You can take a look on r/mechanicalkeyboards for a Serika on Black/White board and see what you like most. But black and white boards usually pair well with basically everything.

Serika looks great with: grey, dark grey, black, silver, polycarbonate, milk or yolk. I also think it looks great with dark blue.

Plenty of case options for this set.

**NOT ERGO RELATED:

Not sure if this has been mentioned/asked yet;

I know there are already so many compatibility keys in the 40’s kit, but has there been any notion for an Included R2 1.5u & 2u “Backspace” and another R3 1.25u & 1.5u “Enter” And 1.5u “Tab” for boards like the Dimple and Pearl, And JD45

Sculpted 40’s kits are a nightmare lol

Has there been the thought to split Ortho 40’s and Staggered 40’s into separate kits?

I opted to omit those. The current kit is already a little bit bigger than what I'd like to, and I think there's plenty enough support for many of the boards.

I won't be splitting staggered and ortho for 40s.

Yeah, middle finger homing is too far down the rabbit hole.

But why not include non-homing F & J in the Alphas and Katakana kits?

I don't think it's really necesary and it's just two redundant keys that most people won't use. That very same question could be applied with GMK sets where we include the two different homing keys (barred and scooped) but not non-homing F and J.

Totally understood on blanks.  I think the Ergo set is fine the way you have it now, I took some more time to digest the mod text and it's perfectly reasonable.  Truth be told though, I actually voted for your original kit with the labelled mods.  I thought it covered most peoples use case wonderfully.  As much as I like novelty text, it's nice that there are a few sets out there that have normally labelled legends :)

For rare layouts, WASD (http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keycap-set/104-key-cherry-mx-keycap-set.html) might be a solution.  They support TKL and 104 sets in ANSI and ISO and will custom-print a one-off set of your design.  But they only have OEM profile ABS, and the weight/thickness is similar to stock keycaps - nowhere near the quality of GMK or SP.  Sets for ortholinear boards might still be possible; they used to take orders for custom sets built from their stock sizes.

Not ideal, but better than nothing for some.

I’m a newcomer to this stuff and want to buy keycaps for my birthday. Symbiosis is already sold out but this set also supports Colemak(DH). Yay ヽ(*^▽^)/
Could you tell me whether it will be easy to order it? Like do I have a week after announcement for that or are we talking about a day, hours or even minutes only?

Whenever I find an interesting set (especially with Colevrak/Typist variants) I only see ‘Sold Out’. Is that a usual situation?

It's going to be sold on Drop (formerly known as Massdrop).  They generally run one designer keycap set each month.  I believe they tend to start on the first Tuesday of the month (I'd go looking for this one on 8/6/19), and are available for almost a month.  You're going to have several weeks to place your order after it's made available for sale.  When the sale ends, they'll charge your card for it.  Do not use Paypal when you place your order; Drop tends to have payment problems with Paypal at the end of the drop, which can lead to a cancelled order if you're not paying attention.  A credit card is safer.  After the group buy period finishes, Drop places an order with the manufacturer, and we get our sets a few months later.  It'll be easy to buy if you order during the drop, and harder if you go looking for it in the future.  Drop will sell off their extras at a later date (in a "keycap recap" drop), but anything popular sells out very quickly.  Vote in this poll, and Drop will send you an email when it goes on sale:

https://drop.com/vote/MT3-Serika?mode=guest_open

It's normal for there to be lots of interesting sets out there that are sold out.  Those are group buys that already happened.

Quick question for Zambumon though - Is the Serika Mt3 typeface different than GodSpeed MT3 ? lookin at the "Not final colors" prototypes you have seems to indicate so.
Is the beige key color same as the godspeed ?

Colemak DHm here. Finding matching legends for sculpted profile has been problematic, but so far all MT3 kits, SA Laser and now GMK Pulse have all offered full compatibility. The last one is live right now on drop.com, so you could jump on that as well.

Looking at the OP renders, it seems that the 1.75u stepped caps lock legend is still Caps↵Lock. Any chance of changing that to Caps like you said? I would prefer to have all one-line legends in this set.

Same goes for the 1.25u caps lock in the Forties kit.

Well okay, designer's preference is fine, but I don't think you should sacrifice a uniform look across the set by having just the smaller caps lock legends be two-line, while everything else is one-line.

I just took my MT3 /dev/tty round 2 set out of the box and double checked.  There are three F and three J keys.  One each regular, scooped, and nippled.  It's also shown in the base kit render that's still up on Massdrop:

https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-matt3o-devtty-custom-keycap-set

Thanks for confirming that they're scooped in MT3 Serika, but I'm confident that you're mistaken about the nonexistence of nippled MT3 molds, given that I've got a couple of nippled MT3 keys in hand.

Well that nonuniform look will only happen if you are planning to use the step caps lock keycap. Other than that I don’t see any problems with this “one single” caps lock keycap being on two lines.

Hi,

I don't know if it is too late, but I have a suggestion about the ortho kit based on this
https://drop.com/buy/drop-matt3o-mt3-dev-tty-keycap-set/talk/2432700?utm_source=linkshare&referer=F68W7U

Is it possible to user R5 flat to the bottom row? or at least have the space profile used in that 2U and 1U spaces? otherwise is very very uncomfortable to use.

Something like the MDA Ortho kit https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32934200359.html?spm=2114.12057483.0.0.153430f4ZCLg4D

I feel like R4 bottom row is best for outer mods where you use your pinky, ring, & middle fingers to press them. The inner mods, like the Alt key on an ANSI-layout keeb or the space/layer keys on an ortho board, are all better as R5 because folks tend to use their thumbs for these. Conclusion: Hybrid R4/R5 bottom rows are the best way to make everyone happy.

In a comment below someone is requesting 1C and 2C keycaps in the Ergo kit, but it seems that MT3 tooling does not exist.  Please consider adding a “C” to all convex keycap labels in the kit pictures (for example “6.25C”).  This might reduce misunderstanding.

I wasn't informed about that by Drop and wasn't mentioned about this :(

Even when you check MT3 Godspeed's renders they have been using a regular 2.00 key

MT3 Serika, not Serika MT3 [BRAND/PROFILE] then [NAME OF THE PRODUCT]. We don't say iPhone Apple or HD 6XX SENNHEISER.



Maybe you were just trolling, but it got me thinking...

It’s common and the accepted way to say GMK Serika, or SA Pulse... however ...
Given that this hobby and the marketplace around it has been evolving and maturing, what do designers like you consider the “product” ?

Are you bringing an MT3 set in the Serika colorway or the Serika colorway in the MT3 profile ?

If I were a designer, the fruit of my labor is the colorway and that’s the product being offered in potentially many configurations..
in this sense I would consider key cap profiles as “models” of a product (the colorway).sort of like saying
iPhone XR and iPhone SE.
Or

Zambumon’s Serika MT3 like
Apple iPhone XS

And just like the iPhone has accessories, so do colorways like the
Novelkeys  Serika deskmats like
Otterbox iPhone armour

If you could follow up with Drop about whether 2U spacebars can be convex, that would be great. As an owner of MT3 /dev/tty, I use a cheap XDA 2U spacebar because with the height and scooping, it is physically painful to use MT3 2U keys as a spacebar.

Ergo kit won't have convex 2U. This is also the case for GMK sets.

Are there any convex keycaps in the Split Bars kit?

Unfortunately, no.

In a comment below someone is requesting 1C and 2C keycaps in the Ergo kit, but it seems that MT3 tooling does not exist.  Please consider adding a “C” to all convex keycap labels in the kit pictures (for example “6.25C”).  This might reduce misunderstanding.

convex 2u exists for MT3; I'm currently typing on it from the MT3 Godspeed kit.
I wasn't informed about that by Drop and wasn't mentioned about this :(

Even when you check MT3 Godspeed's renders they have been using a regular 2.00 key

I bought the split spacebars kit and the 2u spacebars kit; 2u were all convex, the rest were all concave. The renders for both kits show concave, so it was a surprise to me as well.

No, and I would have to add an off-center `¬, R1 2"フフ, 3£アァ, as well as R3 '@ケロ, and off center #~ to fully cover the UK layout.

I did consider adding them, but there were a bunch of factors (mainly kit size) that made me think about it and this is why I ended up just including 2 extra keys.

One of my priorities for the ISO UK kit was to make it as small as possible (with the requirement of including the accent `¬, and accent enter key), and initially I thought about not even including Katakana support, which is something that has happened before with some GMK sets. Since I wanted to have a minimal impact, I opted just to include the two backslash keys, since they would provide with some basic ISO support.

Anyways, I'm open for discussion on this topic, and I'd like to know what you guys think about it. The current kit could be around the $12 or $15, and with the new additions it could be around $20 or $24, and while the price differencial might not seem so much, it could be a dealbreaker for some people.

Personally I'd never use the katakana keys, but having them added wouldn't be a dealbreaker for me as an ISO UK user.
The kit being cheaper is nice, but I don't mind paying a little more to support others.

After some consideration, I will be updating the UK ISO kit and adding the keys I commented on an early reply to have all the Katakanas with the UK layout.

Please, do understand that this change implies a price increase of that kit, but I am actually more comfortable if people that want to have the katakana alphas can at least have the UK layout (as well as the general ISO one) covered.

I will also be swapping all the small spacebars that are not convex by R5 keycaps. This is definitely not the ideal solution, but it might be the best I can offer given that at the moment there aren't 1.00, 1.75, 2.25, and 2.75 convex space bars.

I would appreciate it if you could reconsider the R4 keys for ortho layout to be R5. I understand this can be a hard call on which key should go where, but for thumb keys, R4 is not comfortable without a 7 degree incline.

Edit: Looking at it again, the four bottom rows of displayed keys could be changed to R5 and it would be a win overall, unless I'm missing something and 40% users do want double R4.

Check the dev/tty page on Massdrop to see what R5 looks like. It's very comfy and the best option for bottom row keys IMO

MT3 was designed to be used with modern keyboards, which typically have a 5 to 7 degree inclination. (https://matt3o.com/about-mt3-profile-and-devtty-set/)  And the caps will be indeed uncomfortable if used with flat boards.

I won't be changing the modifier keys for any of the kits, and it is not consistent to swap them for one kit (40%) while keeping them for the rest, and I find that R4 is as comfortable on a 40% as it is on a TKL.

Post by: equalunique on Thu, 18 July 2019, 23:36:02
I'm also keen on R4 bottom for ortho, so long as the center thumb keys are convex. Also, the case has got to have some kind of incline... Too bad the WoodKeys APX case seems to have flopped. At least the KBDFans Niu Mini, the KPRepublic JJ/SP series, and the UD_40 (IC currently on GH), all have a little incline to them. Unfortunately, none offer the flexibility of an OLKB Planck PCB.

For ergonomics I prefer a negative incline and MT3 actually makes this easier to achieve, because even when flat, the profile leans backwards.

But for the very same reasons people flip their spacebars, R3 is preferred on SA bottom row and you decided to use R5 on split spacebar keys, I would prefer R5: it's easier on the thumbs.

It's your vision and GB, and I respect that, but it makes it a no go for me.

Good day,

I'm keeping and eye to the reports of MT3 Godspeed. Here are my thoughts about it:

The expectations for MT3 can only be described as overwhelming and like any other premium product, people will be vocal if the quality is not exceptional.

Personally speaking, and like with any keyset I make, I don't want these issues to happen. Drop's policy regarding faulty MT3 keycaps has been sending replacements, and I haven't heard of cases where that option wasn't offered. Unfortunately, replacements are a contingency measure, and all these posts, which are done prior to receiving those replacements, leave a bad impression about the set and generates scepticism. There's definitely room for improvement detecting these issues and minimizing them, something I believe will be getting better and better with each set they make.

I believe with such a new profile that there is going to be some ironing to be made, and subsequent sets will build off the previous. Personally, I can't see the issues presented in that Reddit post, but I'm sure they're there. Had I the set in hand, I probably wouldn't have noticed anything.

The only issue I ever had with a keyset was with Granite. A few of the keys were very crooked with on the stem. Even at first I tried to brush it off, but came across issues when trying to use them on the board. They were swiftly replaced by Massdrop.

With each passing day I'm getting more excited over this set.

As someone who got a godspeed set with a lot of flaws, it is beyond having expectations that are too high. I have lots of dye sub sets and nothing is every perfect. EPBT will have subtle flaws all over. The MT3 set looks terrible in comparison though. Dozens of caps look like they were in the jig crooked when being dye subbed. They are consistently titled up from left to right. I get the curvature on the caps can cause some issue, but even large keys like the enter keys have these issues even though they have a good amount of flat area.

Here is a good example from the reddit post https://i.imgur.com/N1vpqLy.jpg Stage and Deploy are clearly tilted down left to right (land, right, and rcs less so but still tilted)

Just perusing through reddit posts (not ones specifically showing issues) you can spot the slanted keys. Whether that bothers people enough to return them is another story. Its my understanding that dev/tty had similar issues so it might just be something that has to be accepted with the profile.

Here is a good example from the reddit post https://i.imgur.com/N1vpqLy.jpg Stage and Deploy are clearly tilted down left to right (land, right, and rcs less so but still tilted)

Just perusing through reddit posts (not ones specifically showing issues) you can spot the slanted keys. Whether that bothers people enough to return them is another story. Its my understanding that dev/tty had similar issues so it might just be something that has to be accepted with the profile.

My apologies, I meant to say that people expect a lot from this set, as they are aftermarket premium keycaps, and people are obviously vocal when they are not up to the expected quality.

Hey Zambumon, are these reports on MT3 Godspeed quality giving you any pause? See: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/cewqfq/mt3_godspeed_10_out_of_10_kits_had_errors/talk
Thank you so much for showing me that! 🙇 All those misaligned prints in a premium product…
and paying for Colevrak mod only to get “1st Colevrak Kit - T is supposed to be scooped, it is not.” https://i.imgur.com/hm8j01e.jpg devastating.

I believe with such a new profile that there is going to be some ironing to be made, and subsequent sets will build off the previous. Personally, I can't see the issues presented in that Reddit post, but I'm sure they're there. Had I the set in hand, I probably wouldn't have noticed anything.

The only issue I ever had with a keyset was with Granite. A few of the keys were very crooked with on the stem. Even at first I tried to brush it off, but came across issues when trying to use them on the board. They were swiftly replaced by Massdrop.

With each passing day I'm getting more excited over this set.

Good day,

I'm keeping and eye to the reports of MT3 Godspeed. Here are my thoughts about it:

The expectations for MT3 can only be described as overwhelming and like any other premium product, people will be vocal if the quality is not exceptional.

Personally speaking, and like with any keyset I make, I don't want these issues to happen. Drop's policy regarding faulty MT3 keycaps has been sending replacements, and I haven't heard of cases where that option wasn't offered. Unfortunately, replacements are a contingency measure, and all these posts, which are done prior to receiving those replacements, leave a bad impression about the set and generates scepticism. There's definitely room for improvement detecting these issues and minimizing them, something I believe will be getting better and better with each set they make.

As someone who got a godspeed set with a lot of flaws, it is beyond having expectations that are too high. I have lots of dye sub sets and nothing is every perfect. EPBT will have subtle flaws all over. The MT3 set looks terrible in comparison though. Dozens of caps look like they were in the jig crooked when being dye subbed. They are consistently titled up from left to right. I get the curvature on the caps can cause some issue, but even large keys like the enter keys have these issues even though they have a good amount of flat area.

My apologies, I meant to say that people expect a lot from this set, as they are aftermarket premium keycaps, and people are obviously vocal when they are not up to the expected quality.

The reddit post and pictures mentioned above are posted by me.
Just wanted to chime in and say that I firmly believe that both mito and zambumon have the same expectations as most of us have on the keysets they design.
My intention with the post is to bring to light how many issues there were, given that i actually ordered quite a vast array of sets and every set had at least a couple of issues. And i feel like a reddit post hits a broader mass than a comment/review on drop does. Especially since i can't post a review on drop yet (i think dhl haven't notified drop that the parcel is delivered yet). My only hope is that drop will offer me replacements, and that i don't have to ship the keys with acceptable quality back, because i think that the replacement sets will have some issues too, so i think i will have to pick from the replacements to build a full set...

I share the same belief that zambumon has, with each set that's designed in the mt3 profile (mass)drop will get better and better. But drops history tells me we need to be vocal about the issues we find.

Despite the massive legend issues with MT3 godspeed it's still my favorite set so far. The profile is just amazing and the godspeed colorway is a favorite too.

I'm probably going to purchase at least the same amount of sets in the MT3 Serika drop, probably even more.
I'm digging the colors and really looking forward to seeing the hard work sambumon has put into the new font.

Sure, it sucks having to spend the hours QC'ing the sets myself, but it's worth it imho.

I am in charge of the design of the set, not about its production or QC, that's out of my scope of responsabilities with Serika. Just like I can't give you an estimate delivery date, or how much time would take to sort out the kits, I can't say if these issues may or may not happen again with Serika.

All I can do regarding this aspect, is to relay the concerns about QC to Drop, something that I am sure Mito has already done.

This is going to be such a ****storm! I already see massive amounts of sold sets as this is Serika and everyone wants Serika. Then I can see also a massive amount of issues, misaligned and crooked lettering and a huge number of angry and tilted community members.

And then pointing fingers between Zambumon and Drop like hot potato whose fault it is.

p.s. I am a huge fan of your work and own multiple sets and really want this to work and be a huge succession for you. Personally will probably boycott this set because of Drop and EU.

I think that will be unlikely. Shipping from the EU warehouse is still in the testing phase and if I were them and they had plans to stock any set, I'd rather start with a GMK one.

Thanks for the clarification. I totally understand that you can only have so much say on QC as the designer and I will continue supporting designers because that is what drives the hobby. I guess my biggest fear is eventually massdrop will flag me as the guy who complains about QC on every MT3 set lol. Till then I am in on these sets because when they nail the dye sub it looks great.

to have some sets w/o labels?
They should be cheaper cuz there’s one less manufacturing step, they obviously have zero issues with misaligned prints
and Typist/Colvrak users don’t need to buy additional mods. 🤔

No plans to offer blanks. Aside the minor changes I've discussed (spacebars and UK) the kits are final and we are getting ready for the drop.

Hihihi, that happens all the time. Purple is very popular, specially for cybepunk, futuristic and vaporwave sets, so in that aspect I'm lucky that MT3 Serika gives a little bit of contrast to those sets.

It'll be limited time (around a month), but unlimited quantity. In fact, the more people that buy a kit the better, since it'll contribute to hitting MOQ and maybe even price drops.

Well, I'd like to insist on that the yellow we currently have is really good and looks great with the rest of the caps.


I love the yellow in the GMK set, but I honestly might like this one even more. It’s really just a touch softer, which works so nice on a yellow, for me personally. In fact, your sample is making me wish there were a GMK equivalent now, too. It’s a relatively subtle difference, but it complements the creamy alphas so well.

I absolutely agree! I was about to say that and I'm glad you thought the same!!

R4 is way too steep if you primary hit bottom row modifiers with your thumbs, as is the case for most ortho boards.
Currently the only offering with any R5 is the ergo set, but it only includes 8.

Already addressed this, no plans for more R5 (with the exception of the spacebars when R4C is not available)




I would appreciate it if you could reconsider the R4 keys for ortho layout to be R5. I understand this can be a hard call on which key should go where, but for thumb keys, R4 is not comfortable without a 7 degree incline.

Edit: Looking at it again, the four bottom rows of displayed keys could be changed to R5 and it would be a win overall, unless I'm missing something and 40% users do want double R4.


MT3 was designed to be used with modern keyboards, which typically have a 5 to 7 degree inclination. (https://matt3o.com/about-mt3-profile-and-devtty-set/)  And the caps will be indeed uncomfortable if used with flat boards.

I won't be changing the modifier keys for any of the kits, and it is not consistent to swap them for one kit (40%) while keeping them for the rest, and I find that R4 is as comfortable on a 40% as it is on a TKL.

Just wanted to make note that I am currently typing on MT3 Godspeed with a slight decline instead of incline and it's very comfortable with R5 thumb keys.

From the source you linked, by Matt3o:

> If you instead like dead flat keyboards, the set won’t be any worse than –say– SA anyway.

Again, it's your call, but I don't think you should be flat out stating that MT3 is inherently uncomfortable for any keyboard without an incline, because me and other ortho users are finding it a comfortable profile on flat or keyboards with a negative tilt. Just not with R4 thumb keys.

I've already stated my position and made up my mind regarding row 5 keycaps, and I think it is clear that changing the kits and the row profile for just ortholinear keyboards is not going to happen.

In my reply I cited Matt3o mentioning that the profile was designed to be used with keyboards with an inclination, and then I pointed out my experience with MT3 and flat keyboards: I find it uncomfortable. If I can't state that MT3 is indeed uncomfortable with flat keyboards, then we can't do the opposite.

On the flip side, I can't type on MT3 without a positive tilt, hated it flat. So R4 bottom row works for me.

Any reason why the i18l kit doesn't have the brackets etc. for Alt-Gr modifiers? The japanese alphas do have the "third" legend on the keys, so it's not a matter of space nor aesthetics. Personally I feel like it kind of misses the point if the brackets and squiggly braces etc. are not there.

I like the super homing set, but I am not using qwerty layout therefore the homing keys are different. Are there any chances to have homing keys of other letters?

Yeah prices are solid. Especially with the breaks that I am guessing will get it. I'm feeling pretty good about final price for what I want in the 115-125 range which is great for the number of kits and keys I am interested in.

wish the text arrows was the separate kit and the base was with icon arrows, but it's fine it's not that much cost extra and I'm sure there is a good reason

You will be charged as soon as the GB ends, no sooner.  Note that there may be complications if you use PayPal, see Drop's explanation.

If you didn't see them yet, you might find these price graphs (https://drop.com/buy/drop-zambumon-mt3-serika-custom-keycap-set/talk/2483535?utm_source=linkshare&referer=AV5F4D?mode=guest_open) interesting.

Anyone familiar with customs duties for folks from EU? How much of additional costs should I assume for ~120$ of MT3 Serika keycaps?
Any hints or pointers appreciated.

Different per country.

VAT (e.g. 19% in Germany, 20% in UK) + processing fees (very different from country to country)

Regarding PayPal: I cannot recommend using PayPal for keycap drops. If you want to use Paypal, do not modify your order. Cancel it and place a new one.

Price drops could also cause issues with PayPal.
