I'm really liking the set so far.  Any chance there could be a dark purple space bar to go with it?  I feel like that would visually look awesome and would like to have the option throw one on.

Digging the lotuses, what about doing something with the MTG mana symbols for novelties?

The mana novelties are there right above the lotuses - white, blue, black, red and green respectively, albeit modified in order to avoid copyright infringement and all that.

Yeah I got that, I meant the mana cost numbers.  I initially thought of the 0 since it's so iconic for the lotus, but thinking on it you could do 0-9.  Not sure if the mana symbols are copy righted though too.

OH right, my bad, yea I thought that might've been what you meant. When I spoke with Potato about the novelties some months ago I mentioned the mana cost as it is iconic for the Lotus as you said - I figure it may be hard to incorporate but it might be cool to have a stripe kit for example with where the 0-9 number row is done MTG style. Then again it might not tip MOQ wise as it is hard to gauge how many people buying into this set are fans hardcore enough to purchase that.

Another idea I threw around was having an enter key novelty where instead of the regular icon mods arrow it'd be the tap icon - not sure how feasible that one would be either but still, so many cool things one could do related to MTG if copyright infringement wasn't a thing and the GMK MOQ wasn't as high.

Really like the colours. I've been on a purple craze lately with Plum and the JTK purple set I got.

Any chance having a spacebar kit (2.25u, 2.75u, etc) like the Yuri set?

it would be nice if this set support "split-spacebar" (1.75u, 2.25u, 2.75u)

about the novelties, I'm no designer  :( ,
I think we should focus on the "lotus" and Black Lotus avatar,
hmm... what about the icon for Brain Burst program? though I presume it's copyright-ed?

It would be a shame to scrap those novelties... I'm totally drawing a blank as to what they could possibly be replaced with while retaining the original flavor of the set. Mr. potatobot, have you looked into the possibility of pad-printing, or is your heart set on doubleshot novelties?

That's a good point, while not ideal pad printing is probably worth the sacrifice to keep the look.  People have already resorted to pad printing for stuff like the Windows 95 keys (like in Hydro) so it's not unheard of.  Could always design a couple more novelties that are doubleshot and then run a poll to see what people would rather have (or maybe just have both if not too cost-prohibitive?).

Hey guys, thanks for keeping the dream alive :D

Anyways, im currently talking to someone(a respectable vendor) who is really interested in running the set very soon but a bit weary of the timing and thee novelties are far from perfect.

From what I've read, GMK can't do doubleshots if the designs are too "fine". I think the lines have to be of a certain thickness, so unfortunately it would seem that most of the novelties are a no-go, unless they were done with pad printing. IIRC, this is what GMK Hydro did with the Windows 95 style winkey.

Yeah they are a bit too fine for doubleshot, GMK has already provided me with the specs of the tooling which i can work with.  :thumb:

I would like to suggest R4 1u novelties.

For suggestions, have you thought about the butterfly? I believe that it is very iconic to Hime or her butterfly wings for that matter. Would be excellent to have.
Example: http://www.rightstufanime.com/images/productImages/699858500741_merchandise-Accel-World-Pin-Set-Kuroyukihime-and-Butterfly.jpg?resizeid=3&resizeh=600&resizew=600

Another is the actual EXE brain burst file called 'BB2039", I think that would be ideal for R4 as 1.5u, 1.25u or 1u. Though it's not exactly linking to her itself but I think it is good to include
(Attachment Link)

Yes, the butterfly novelty is in the pipeline  ;)

The mana novelties are there right above the lotuses - white, blue, black, red and green respectively, albeit modified in order to avoid copyright infringement and all that.

I should get the renders done soon so we can vote which novelties will be in the final list. Having so many novelties will make it more expensive and could cost us not reaching MOQ.

If it doesn't affect the price of the base kit that much, we could try to have them. But im guessing additional kits would be a better option.

Ive been working on that brainburst logo for awhile and i came up with something for the enter key

I wouldnt want to risk pad printed novelties. Will post the renders as soon as i can. prolly 2 weeks from now. :D

If you do, please added two 2u space bars, whether that be a separate space bar kit or in the main set, you've gotta include it.
My hands and knees are freaking bowing down at you to make it happen!

That burst link graphic was something I wanted to mention but thought it was copyright issues or so, I guess not.
It looks awesome regardless! And great that the butterfly is in the works too.
Hoping it's for R4 1u-1.5u though as I feel there's plenty on R1 already.

I know it's been a month or so but did you need help with the lotus flower novelty? I'm no designer either but doing some googling I found the original so I started looking for something simpler. Some of these are ok https://www.colourbox.com/preview/18802178-vector-black-lotus-icons-set-on-white-background.jpg

and I really like this but I don't know GMK's specs

The "burst link" is quite awesome.  Hope that it will be a kit that includes some non-standard layouts, like R3-1.75u-enter / R3-1.25u-caps or tab.
.
It would be great if the layout comes up like GMK Laser. Also a spacebar kit includes 1.75/2/2.25/2.75u spacebars will be fantastic.

Hi everyone!

Im sorry I couldn't post updates as often as I should. A lot has happened over the past couple of months and there are major changes with the plans for this set. Unfortunately they are still not set in stone and I wouldn't want to jinx it. Hope you will still support this keyset as I really would want this to be realized.

Im almost done redoing all the novelties. Just a bit confused what novelties to include or should I sell them all as a separate kit.

Will be updating you guys soon regarding the ff:
1. Schedule of sale
2. Vendor
3. Final kits

Anyways here are some mockups for this keyset. (Sorry if they are not that accurate and i just used this new KLE feature to make them. Hope this gives you a good idea on how this set would look on some of the most popular layouts)

Also, what if the alphas were purples and the mods black. Just ideas, either way im in on the GB when its released.

I think in general novelties should be a separate kit with GMK.  It allows the base kit to come in at a lower price which is most important to a majority of buyers.

The lilac legends makes the set unique. While the inverse version was shown before but the current version had the most votes on the poll..

Yeah but i think the base set should have some novelties as well to separate the basekit from possible copies of the colorway.

I much much prefer the legend colors seen in the OP renders, unless you actually are sticking with those and these latest renders just look off.

i think it's just a render thing since the color codes seem the same. i think we can go off thesiscamper's renders for what keys in the set will actually look like. potato is just giving detail on what the set would look like in various keyboard configs.

Yea it has to be the renders. If you blow the images up you can tell it's lilac as it should be, you can just BARELY tell without enlarging them.

Haven't checked in on this in a while, but I'm relieved to see that it's still clinging to life!

Sorry bout my cheap looking renders, They are just to show how the set would look on various layouts.

The legends are lilac by the way, i set it like that on KLE render but they look very light indeed.

Anyways, Im currently working with another vendor to get this set back on track ASAP.  :thumb:

So will there be light and dark arrow keys? Renders only show the light but on the TKL render it's dark

Edit: woops, I'm dumb, haven't checked out the set in a while and just checked the front page and noticed it has both in the base kit, sorry

This would be a very easy purchase for me. IDK what board I'd even put it on yet haha.

This set would look amazing on an "understated" board like the m-65. Black Lotus is what I've been dreaming of putting on mine. The board looks all serious and clean, while the keyset pops and looks very unique!

I'd love to see an option for RGB shine-through lettering.

As far as I'm aware neither GMK or SP make shine through caps at all. They would likely need lots of time to adjust since shine through doubleshots work by using 2 different plastics. This would also be super limiting in terms of available colors.

Its not gonna happen.

Has a vendor been chosen for this keyset, or is that still being hammered out at this time?
