[IC] ePBT G81-SAV Reload - Project Cancelled
« on: Thu, 22 August 2019, 12:04:56 »
2nd IC - https://forms.gle/VcDoXptA6tunxxVJ9

224956-0

Bold, steadfast, nostalgic...

This set is inspired by G81-3000SAV. One of the most intriguing setup of this set is the mixage of Russian and English by displaying one on the forefront and another on the side, creating a unique aesthetic. Yellow and Red accents are included in the set as a small touch of complimentary add-on.

I know this is a small thing, but should probably clarify G81-3000SAV so people dont think its 3100SAV from the name.

I'm definitely interested but I have a few suggestions.

1. I'm not a huge fan of the accent keys. If possible I'd make them their own separate kit, so those that aren't interested in them can save a few bucks. This also allows people to buy only the accent keys if they want to pair them w/ other sets they already own, kind of like how epbt greyscale was.

2. Add a bit more compatibility to the base kit, at the very least 1800 support :)

Thank you for the reply and your interest.

1. At the moment, we'd prefer to stick to the current kit set up. But thank you for your input.

2. Rest assured. WK, WKL, ISO, 1800 are all supported; additional 2U shift is also in the kit.

Is there any chance  of a Super/Code key? Since I am a non-Windows user, that Windows flag key actually a dealbreaker. And I do need a third modifier keycap.

Sorry, I'm not quite getting your question, as I see the proposed kit and the G81-3000SAV shares almost identical layout, even for the part you mentioned. Would you mind elaborate a bit more or correct me if I were wrong? Thank you!

Not a solid yes as I personally wouldn't want to overpromise anything, but I have delivered the message and the feedback was positive and it should be added into the kit.

Are you going to try and get them to make molds for R5?

We cannot say for sure at the moment. Let us get back to you soon on this.

This might be too niche to even ask for but I figured I might as well - akin to how the Extended 2048 had their Katakana sub-legend secondary alpha kit at an extremely affordable price (like $15 or less), would you consider offering a true mono-Cyrillic alternative alpha (+ pipe key I suppose, technically) kit here too?

I know it kinda defeats the point, this is supposed to be a G81-3000SAV replica set, but I think it might actually be fairly successful if added considering the extremely low price tag. It would be the first quality classic mono Cyrillic PBT set in a while (aside Hammer's super limited Moscow Night extras that went out with CRP's first round I think?), which is something I'd personally love to see ran.

I'd also like to have R5 but it's not a deal breaker. Please do consider the alternative alphas, though.

That doesn't help a lot either. The "big find" of G81-3100 SAVs was red but they exist on G81-3000 SAV boards as well.

Edit: I just brought the initial question down from the elaboration.
Sorry for the late response, we have communicated with the author; the 1.5u "\|" is a special case; although it is identical to the original keyset, the 1u serves properly as it is, which is why it doesn't have the vibe / look 1.5u's does.

Are 2.25u and 2.75u split spacebars possible?
The kit has just been updated, it is now supported.

I will take a picture of the accents separately so you can judge whether it matches your taste.
