Re: [IC] KAT Goddess | BIG UPDATE: Changed the profile and added new things
« Reply #100 on: Fri, 06 December 2019, 19:33:01 »
UPDATE: So I decided to switch this set to KAT profile and along with this change you will find a few new things have been added to the set!

Eff me. Just Eff me in the A.

Colevrak and TWO weeb sets? Welp, time to go sell some blood.

One request: if you're going to combine 40s and Ortho mods into one kit, can we get 1u ENTERs for the "40s colors" kit?
Glad you like it! And I added those keys to the 40s Colors kit  :thumb:

Splitting the ISO compat kits and the ISO enters doesn't make a lot of sense to me - neither does having 4 accent colours.

I agree.  Less colours and combine them ftw

Those kits have been updated to how I intended for them to be.

Full list of changes:
-Added 40s/ortho novelties kit
-Added Missing keys to both Katakanas kits
-Added Novelties kit for ISO enters
-Added 1u enters to the 40s colors kit
-Fixed Ergo kits duplicated kits
-Fixed Missing iso enter from "US + UK ISO", "French", "North"

I checked the changed design.
KAT Profile is also pretty.

Would you be ready to change the ISO FR kit into a "purity"/white one instead of blue ?
I believe that it would not only match better with the blue modifiers but it would also gather another  kind of french users that are lacking a nice neutral white alphas option in the KAT profile.

Hey doesnt Keyreative or whoever makes KAT now, not require a MOQ? Can we get English alphas? I really like this colorway.

edit; NVM found the kit pics hidden in the expandable in the middle of the comments.. heh ;p

hey, maybe I'm interested. I'd be more interested if I could get white alphas with colevrak. which alphas are more popular according to your IC form, white or blue? (don't forget to subtract those interested in colevrak from the blue votes as they don't have a choice at the moment). Also why not just offer 2 different numpad kits instead of adding half a numpad to the white alphas? even one big numpad kit with both colors would make more sense imo.

and it looks like the white 6.25 and 7 unit spacebars are doubled in the spacebars kit.

I support these ideas.  My understanding is there are no individual MOQs for KAT kits, there is only a total set MOQ related to the total number of keycaps sold.  As long as the U count for the set as a whole meets a certain threshold, all kits will be produced.  Unless overall set pricing increases as the number of kits increase, I see no negatives to offering a larger number of smaller kits.  Or am I misunderstanding something?

The negative is the detriment to your vendors' sanity  ;)

Jokes aside, I'm not aware of any downsides to offering more kits other than the logistics for the vendors. (Although some would argue that more kits also has an effect on the aftermarket, due to the difficulty of getting what you want)

I am surprised that the KAT pricing methodology doesn't include sorting/packaging complexity.  But I hope it works for them and they don't change it!

Regarding the aftermarket, consumer and investor interests are often quite different.

You're currently making the common mistake of using R1 for the thumb cluster 1u keys.

UPDATE 4/16/20

Hey guys, I made a poll for the Colevrak users to decide which color alphas they would prefer since I'm not going to be adding more kits in. If you are a user of Colevrak then vote via the link below

This poll will remain open for 1 week from today.

Voted. I went with white, but honestly just glad to have a Colevrak option to begin with. Whatever is picked will drive the alphas I get, but I may pick up a katakana set too.

Would you consider adding a blank set by any chance?

Also will there be any "male/unisex" deskmat option? Something neutral like gmk-modern-dolch-light-deskmat.  ;D

Get a cat and the deskmat will collect so much hair you'll be able to make a second deskmat.  :thumb:

FYI, when the version of the word “staff” is meant to represent something handheld like a walking stick or wizard’s staff, the better plural form is “staves.”

“Staffs” tends to be used with other definitions of staff, like the verb form.

Just came across this set -- so many great katakana KAT sets at the moment!  I'm going to make the same request here as I did for your KAT Explosion set.  It might be too late for that one, but perhaps there's still time here!

That request: please add a ー key to the top, number row (R4 in your diagrams) for the katakana sets.  You already have the R2 む and the R1 ろ, so this is the only key you are missing for full JIS layout of the katakana alphas.  It really does make a difference to the usability of the set for anybody who is going to use it to actually type Japanese using kana input, so I hope you will consider it!

If you have any questions about JIS support in general or this key specifically, please don't hesitate to DM me or contact me on Discord.  I've seen you putting out a lot of nice katakana sets so I would love to help in any way I can to make them usable for JIS users!

Thank you.
