Would it be possible to get some renders on some white boards?

I'm very curious as to how this set would look on a white board.

Eventually yes. I have to get more renders out for Goddess and Atlantis first but I'll make sure to do a white one for Explosion before it goes GB :)

I really like this set but I noticed two things I feel are missing from the kits.
The first is scooped homing keys and secondly I think the Katakana kits should also have an R2 厶 for ISO compability.

EDIT: I noticed two other things:
1. There is no red コ in the Spacebar kit or anywhere else.
2. There are R4 Pipe/厶 keys in the Alphas and Alt Katakanas but no R4 厶 in the red Katakana kit.

I actually made these changes to goddess already, just have not had time to update here yet. But those will be added, thanks for the heads up though!

Any hope of adding also the south kit of kat lich to your sets? If I understood correctly the MoQ is unified so more kits shouldn't be a problem right?

Are the vertically mirrored right Alt legends in the Icon Mods on purpose or not, since they are not flipped in the other kits and I would kind of prefer a non flipped version.

First of all I really like all of your current KAT sets. The different MOQ system they run gives us International kit users some nice variety.
One thing I have noticed is that the KAT sets ( Atlantis | Goddess | Explosion ) all have alternate alphas that are sadly not supported by the international kits.
I do realize that fixing this would mean that we either have huge NorDE kits or a large amount of smaller kits (Not to mention the extra work creators have to put in).

Since I do not know much about creating a keycap set myself I would be interested to know if theres a feasible way to fix this.

Any chance you could add an extra Tab key to the Modifier kits to make it possible to cover two boards (of sufficiently different layouts) with just one Modifier kit and two Alpha kits?

I just realized there's a missed opportunity to make this in KAM profile, because it's FLAT.

It's still PBT. Similar to all R2 KAT.

Mine's (hopefully) running separately due to an issue specific to Lich's timing - I'm sure Ren will run his alongside the set  ;)

I'm loving a lot of these new KAT sets. Just when the endless GMK Uninspiro fatigue made me think there needed to be less sets out there... there seems to be a lot more inspiration and creativity in the people putting together KAT sets. Bring on the explosion!

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.

It's just what happens when you have to use a mediocre profile so these failing child kits can be made. Gotta hype it up even if that means ****ting on other people

interpret this however you want, but imo, people are nostalgically attached to GMK.

it's not to say that GMK kit designers put any less effort into their sets, but the fear to stray away from the norm, and experiment with KAT is something that a lot of people have.

undeniably, KAT sets have a lot more attractive kitting structure to a lot of people, which is the opposite of gatekeeping, since everyone can use their preferred layout.

gatekeeping is the wrong word to describe that phrase, but it's not that using KAT profile means that set designers are putting in more effort.

just my 2 cents tho

His original phrasing made it seem like gatekeeping, he never replied so I don't really know his stance on it, but some people are cozy with GMK and yes you are right, don't want to experiment with other profiles. Luckily I'm not going to get in that slump, I do have other GMK sets in mind, but before I IC those I would like my next set to be a KAT set so I can experience KAT for the first time :)
