[IC] KAT Moonrise
« on: Thu, 09 January 2020, 11:37:55 »
Hello people of geekhack I am doing a interest check for my keycap set for a set I would like to call KAT Moonrise if that's not taken that is.
The three renders are all SA, I don't have a way to render KAT without paying someone for renders which im not ready to do yet neither do I have the money.
SA 104 key, these renders are to test the colors of keycap font and the keycaps, I can't change the font or anything like that.

Leopold fc660m
233298-1
233300-2
The kits would follow something similar to KAT Lich.

Working on
Kits


TO DO
Get renders
Get feedback and adjust things if needed
Get vendors

Here's a signature I made for the set


the code is
Code: [Select]

It'll have that, if the IC check goes through then ill use the KAT keycap system good like the other KAT keysets that have like 13 kits.

It doesn't appeal to me personally but have to say you totally nailed 'moonrise' with that gradient.

First Let me say the colour looks great. Second, I feel MT3 profile might be perfect. If the GB is sometime late in the year probably might get in.

Great job out there, awaiting for some novelites and also kinda wish the colors would be more beige.

Meh. Really not a fan of seeing yet another gradient set. :/
I would wish for a regular, non-gradient grey/beige set in KAT profile. Your colors aren't even far off at all from what I want but I just don't think gradients look good at all, they've never impressed me on keycaps.

If you'd made something like DSA Alchemy (https://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-alchemy-keyset/) in KAT I'd be all over it.

What do you think about a set of f keys with white text? Would raise contrast, but also it would look like stars twinkling.

Looks dope. I would probably only use the f keys with white background because that lighter blue looks great with the grey text to me.

The gradient is awesome. I’d like to see an ortho kit as well as icon mods for arrows (I personally dislike text mod arrows). Also, actual KAT profile renders.

I'm not familiar with KAT sets, but I'm not a fan of these legends. I dislike text arrows and "PAGE UP" instead of "PG UP". Otherwise, very nice set, especially with the top row white legends.

The biggest problem with MT3 is (mass)drop's monopoly over the profile. I would much rather KAT. Lower cost, still great quality, reverse dye-sub PBT options = way more colour options, much better kit MOQs = more kit variety and more likelihood they actually make it to production.

I'd be in for either KAT or MT3 - as long as there is ergodox/boardwalk compatibility.

Yellow fits best IMO. After that I would say black and white as last.

Just curious: what's the plan to produce this color scheme?  Will all keycaps be molded in the bottom row color, completely dyed to get the base color, and then dye-sub for black legends?  Or will they be molded in six different colors with black dye-sub legends?  Or something else?

I have some ideas.

These are pretty rough sketches, and I centered by eye. I'm not sure how this all works and the limitations of making novelties. But I made an account just to do this cuz this keyset looks really cool and it'd be sad to see it die.

The limitation is normally only 2 colors which is the keycap color and the font itself I think tripleshot can do 3 colors not sure about the others but the other thing that is not letting me continue is no money.

KAT is dye-sub so it's a bit different, but I don't know if they can do more than 2 colors. Someone chime in if you know the answer.


I think last I looked KAT Cyberspace was doing 3 colors but I don't know if the designer has asked Keyreative if that's feasible or not.

I've asked them once about it, the answer I got :

With Dye-sub, you can have as many colors as you want on the keycap :) 1, 2, 3 or even more
