That's a pretty harsh thing to say about the entire keycap community. Plenty of people have inspiration for their keysets no matter what profile it is. The creativity for keysets has nothing to do with profile, your comment is just gatekeeping. While I love KAT sets and am working on one myself I put a lot of effort and inspiration into GMK Ashes, and I know countless others who put so much effort into their keysets and ICs.

Gatekeeping? ^-^ Not at all. People can keep releasing endless GMK Monotony sets if they want. My comment was to praise the creativity i'm seeing in KAT sets like this, Lich, Little Pilot etc. Having looked at GMK Ashen I can see why my comment would make you salty though.

It is possible to compliment something without putting something else down. While I appreciate the compliment for Lich, comments phrased like this only end up causing more division.

It is also worth noting that with GMK (and any other ABS doubleshot keycap manufacturer), you do not have the freedom of things such as custom legends without running into significant cost.
PBT dye sublimation allows for a lot more freedom. This is not simply due to "lack of creativity".

No dates yet. All I will say is it for sure will Groupbuy in Q2 or Q3 2020.

In the meantime I have some more updates I'm working on now but those will be a few weeks as I'm trying to get updates finished for KAT Atlantis first since that set is running much sooner.

Also, if any are following my KAT Goddess set, updates are on the way for it as well. It's sure to be an amazing 2020 for KAT sets!

No chance for a South kit? Was looking at this set and I really like it for a board I'm building for my young daughter, but she'd be confused without the ISO-PT at this stage (learning how to type).

The Evolv, 7V, Satisfaction and Dawn (just to name a few) have started to really popularize the vertical function row. Throwing in some novelties that hit r1, r2, r3 and r4 make that function row look really nice! Just something to consider.

For the novelties kit, I can't seem to make an all-novelties non-standard bottom row work.

Take Evolv for example - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104531.0 (or any other keyboard with its layout):
1.50u Left Ctrl = Hat
1.00u Left Windows = Flame
1.50u Left Alt = Hat again? (same symbol used for Left Control)
1.25u Right Alt = Eyepatch (doesn't match Left Alt)
1.25u Right Fn = Cast

Basically, I would like to have two additional 1.50u R1 novelty keycaps of a different symbol to prevent overlapping the same symbol onto different keys. Probably eyepatch since it only comes in 1.25u size for R1.

Someone, please correct me if I'm looking at this wrong. I should have gone to sleep a while ago.

P.S. I also agree with pearlyeti about adding 1.00u R2 & R3 novelties to cover a full vertical function row.

Awesome! Also, if you're going to update some things, please also consider adding another pair of 1.50u R1 novelties. That way an all-novelties non-standard bottom row would be possible in a way that makes sense.
I described the potential problem with the current set in my last comment slightly higher up on this page.

My only suggestion is to separate 40% and ortho and give ortho a second 2u key are my suggestions, half because im a ergo user with ortho keycaps but i have 2 2u and the other reason is because kat moq can do that

For the novelties set, any chance of 1.5u "explosion" text modifier for R1 for use in split ergos that do not have 2u thumb clusters (such as the Lily58). I know "explosion" is a R2 modifier and it might be a tight fit on a 1.5u, but I thought I'd ask anyway just in case there was a chance to have explosion somewhere on my keeb.

they're 2.25u which makes me sad as a split ergo user i can make it fit but still

Thanks for catching my mistake. 1.5u would probably be impossible to fit for sure :/
Maybe a mini explosion? (besides the flame)

I noticed there is no 7u spacebar for the alternate alpha's color. Is this intentional or will there be one added before the GB?

Keep in mind that people who buy ortho will also be ergo users like lily58, corne, kyria, etc the ergo splits that barely use 2u or bigger than 1u keys. I personally need a second 2u key on the ortho set and theres also planck and other actual orthos that can use 2 2u

Yes like a second 2u spacebar or a ergo spacebar kit would be cool too unless the ergo 2u spacebar in the ergo kit isn't slanted towards thumb

Would it be possible to move the 6.25u spacebars from the alpha sets to the mod sets instead? Then we could have the 3 different coloured spacebars (red/purple/yellow) in both 6.25u and 7u in the mods? Wondering if this makes more sense since the ergo users won’t need the spacebars if they get the alphas and we get all 3 coloured spacebars regardless of which alphas we choose to get? Then all the spacebars could be removed from the different alpha sets! (Got this idea from Minterly’s KAT Eternal set)

Mainly commenting because I’m annoyed with myself for not asking for this and a couple other changes for KAT Atlantis before it went to GB :( now I’m in a dilemma about what set to get!

That does make a lot of sense. That way if people want multiple alphas sets and only one mods set they won't have a bunch of extra 6.25u spacebars lying around. And like you said, this way everyone will get a brown 6.25u spacebar to go with their mods even if they don't get an alt alphas set.

I have to in alphas because 40s use them on some boards. I might change it going forward though.

Could you add an extra Tab (R3 1.25u), Backspace (R4 2u) and Shift (R1 1.25u) to the modifier kits or create a small add-on kit?

With these extra keys two alpha kits and one modifier kits would cover two boards (TKL/60%+60%/65%) with different bottom row layouts and Caps Lock type.

Seeing more novelties for 40s would be nice, i assume licensing is an issue with this but having the language used in konosuba would be brilliant.

Hey Rensuya, any chance for a purple spacebar kit? Could the spacebar kits also be broken up by color? Specifically wondering about a 2.25u/2.75u split and a 7u in purple.

Otherwise, I really like this kit and your work in general!
