I like this theme. It's so neat. Would it be odd to add a "Nyaa" or "Nyan" key or something along those lines in the novelties? Or is that too weeb? >_<

Doesn't really match the theme, other than cat.

That makes sense. I figured I'd ask since the worst thing that would happen is you saying no. I appreciate the explanation. (:

For sure! I thought about adding a couple more words to text novelties, like Neko, or something along the lines of what you were thinking, but didn't really feel like it was a good fit to the rest of the stuff, or would have had to expand a little more to make it fit, like adding subs, and that didn't feel right either. Rather leave the set clean, easy, and more generally relatable to cats, their memes, and stuff they do.

Color me interested. I was imagining a high class vibe with this colorway (red tinted pink on a black-ish background). Would like to see more of the novelties

I'm glad you didn't add sublegends to this set. It feels a lot better, especially with the theme you're going for. Excited for this~

Looks great! Would love International kit/NordDe kit. Especially since Olivia didn't have one.

Thanks! A little feedback about your comments. This set is not trying to do what Olivia++ might have, or have not done. Different sets, different colors more or less, (stock pink on stock grey here, to custom pink on custom black with Olivia++), different themes, different designers.

It would be lovely to include any and all compatibility for all users (as we are all mechanical keyboard enthusiasts here), this is not a likely scenario though with a manufacturer like GMK. Sets with huge hype and huge sales have trouble with international kits meeting MOQ. So while not against it, not confident that kit can happen here.

If people aren't really into the paws, can remove some in favor of more / repeated text novelties. I thought they were kind of cute and added that little more to the theme. Thanks for the honest feedback. Will look into a small kit update. :thumb:

Tbh it depends on whether it increases price significantly.

I'd buy the kit with a lot of paws and all the mlems and boops if the price difference isn't huge.

Eh. I liked the toes too. Haha. Could just be because I like cats and don't just Google cat memes XD.

I'm a fan of all the paws. Whenever this set drops, I might replace Pause with paws too.

Added a few beautiful renders on a custom Iron165.

Few more to come while some more work happens.

Please do fill out the IC form if you haven't. Cheers!

The text novelties really make the set, and 4 in various profiles in the base could cover basic ortho support and also be fun for nonortho users too.

Don't want to force novelties into the base, as some people are not into them, and rather keep base straight forward. 40's / ortho will either be in base or a kit, depending on how a few things go. Bit worried about base price with all those keys, as it would be nice for base to be affordable.

Yep, the base kit is fine as it is. It even covers the most basic ISO support, so I'm in, I guess!

Umbra and Pegaso(?) both had abbreviated ortho support in the base kit, by using "nonspecific" text legends like "data" and "out". Since those legends are meaningless anyway they're almost novelties, but might work for those that really hate cat memes.

Its certainly cheaper than Ortho/40s kits that have 2 tabs, 4 1u escapes and 4 1u enters, (but sometimes only one 1u backspace and 1u shift anyway:(), but doesn't do much for nonortho 40s.
