I'd love to see text icons for the 40's/Ortho kit. Yes, I know I've already asked once, but I've never received a response about this. Your silence is turning me off from this set. If the answer is no, I can deal with that, but please don't leave me, and the others who inquired, holding out hope for no good reason.

You do realize that the designer can choose not only which kits to design/include, but also who and how they choose to respond to said requests, right? Your sense of entitlement is showing.

Here's a quote from the discord: "I only planned to offer 1 for 40s/ortho/ergo and did a poll and atlantean icons were picked by a vast majority"

I do my best to respond to as many as I can but I'm sorry if I missed your comment. I did mention in discord a few days ago that I will not be doing any other 40s/Ortho kits for Atlantis when another user brought it up. So, to your question, no.

Hey do you have a ballpark on the price? I知 tempted to go for KAT Speciman cause of the cheaper price but I prefer these colors and since Speciman ends in 9 days I知 kinda in a dilemma.

Update #10: Parital Pricing added & Katakanas

You will notice some of the kits are missing from prices and that's because they have some small changes I made and I'm waiting on the re-quote. I know some of you wanted to know prices to help with your choices in advance, so I hope this helps!

Alphas - $33
ALT Alphas - $47
Korean Alphas - $35
Greek Alphas - $35
Katakanas - $35
Text Modifiers - $60
Icon Modifiers - $60
Numpad - $26
Ergo - $50
French - $22
ISO - $17
North - $33
Spacebars - $22
Colevrak - $26

I can't believe I'm saying this (I'm a total weeb) but I don't get the addition of katakana. It seems off-theme.

Ditto Korean, but those have always been there.

I'm already getting alphas, Greek, and Colevrak. Not sure I'll get the katakanas. :-/

Yeah, the Korean was requested early on so I figured why not. The Katakanas I just wanted. Most will probably lean to the Greek, alt, or regular though. At least we have options :D

Is there any way to get a second tab in the modifiers kits? With a second tab you can buy two alphas and one mod and piece together two different 60%. Also why are there 3 escape keys in the kit?

There are four esc keys, because the sculpt of KAT has a different shape for the F-row (R5) to the top of the alpha block (R4). There are two on each row, because the set includes accents and non-accented versions.

Agreed. I'm a big fan of how flexible KAT is.

... and I'm convinced that flexibility isn't being fully taken advantage of. If total number of keycaps spread over whatever amount of kits is the key here, KAT sets should be going the full route and not make a "base alphas" kits + "north"/"south", etc., but instead a full set of kits for each alpha layout ("English (USA) - QWERTY", "English (USA) DVORAK", "English (UK)", "German", "Spanish", "Iberoamerican", "Italian", "Norwegian", "Greek", etc.) plus a full set of kits for most of the common modifiers ("TKL/fullsize", "75%", "60%/65", "1800", etc.), with the more numerous variants (TKL, 65%) even being offered in different styles ("English mods", "Spanish mods", "German mods", "all icons").

MUCH of the work between sets could be shared if agreeing previously to the same font (albeit that would apply to sets where a differing font is a selling point, like Atlantis or Lich, for example).

That many SKUs would probably be chaotic at best, and pulling teeth at worst, to both the vendor and the manufacturer.

Sure, so you could run an early poll during the IC phase, to weed out "unwanted" kits. Doing, say, a "KAT TROPICS" set and several people are requesting the Brazilian layout while no one wants the Icelandic and the Faroese? Cut those two out!

Update #11: Final Mats being offered 2/17

All Mats will be $17


The Kraken and Symbol mats will be color-matched to the Atlantis keyset.




(DISCLAIMER) This undersea mat will be offered but will not be color-matched to Atlantis's shades of blue perfectly. It will be offered as you see here. I was going to cut this one entirely, but some seem to still want it. While it does not match Atlantis exactly, it would still look nice with it or any other blue sets!
