Can you render with a white case please?

100% un-official and just a quick Photoshop of the color, but here is a rough idea of what it will look like on a white board. I am sure they will release much better renders on white when the GB opens.

If I end up too poor to buy the keycaps, I'd empty my wallet just to buy those deskmats. The design's amazing!

I will soon be releasing a huge Update regarding the Novelties, updated versions of Yamato and Man of Culture Kit, Vendors, estimated GB Time and collaborations that are in the works! So exited for this Kit to get into it's final form!
I'm also sorry for such a long time with no Updates.

Awesome, can't wait to see how it'll be!
I'm definitely in for one of dose mats.

So have you decided not to offer a icon modifiers kit too?

Yes, unfortunately I'm not going to offer a stand-alone Icon Modifiers Kit, because I think this will be covered by the Novelties mostly and simple Icons don't fit the theme in my Opinion.

But thanks for the great feedback!

Thanks to you for this set!  It's still one of the best looking I've seen.

Yeah I agree that simple icons would not cut it...
I was pheraps thinking of something like hiragana characters, with a font that resembled ink painting or something like that.
It'd also help reduce cost for those who are only interested in the Yamato kit, without the need to get the base kit too.

But some things are just not made to happen I guess :P
In any case, it's just the beginning of the year, other great sets will surely come!

Good luck with the group buy, whenever that'll be then!  And congrats again for this great work you've done

CR is #171718 (per Keyboard Layout Editor)
RAL 5004 is #191e28
And FWIW, Pantone and RAL are two different companies.

Okay, so I think there are problems with having the Home/PgUp/End/Delete et cetera keys black when they're for TKL-like layouts, but cream when they're for 65%s or 1800 style layouts. If you want to put Home/PgUp/PgDn/End in the top row for 1800 layouts, you end up with black/black/cream/cream. Similarly, if you want to have Home/PgUp/PgDn/End in a column on the right of a 65%, you get black/cream/cream/cream. You need to rethink something there, or just add a lot of keys.

Iím thinking about switching the Keys like PgUp/Dn to Modcolour so that this issue wont appear and to save a small amount of money, because of less keycaps in the Base set.

That would be even better! Hmm... more headache.
Can you guys say the order of preference over those 4 mats?
I want to pick just 2, which is already too many

I'd buy at least both koi mats, but likely buy all 4.

Any chance of mats being delivered before keyset? I understand things are kind of up in the air with coronavirus and all.

I still haven't heard of the company that produces the Mats, due to corona. So I guess we'll have to wait.

They're all beautiful either way, I just thought the bonsai might look a little more slick/flow with other keysets without the sun, or a smaller one. Like the sakura, too, but I don't know if I could own it. One of my high school crushes had a sakura tattoo, so usually I think of her when I see them.

Maybe I could send you a "modified" version of the Deskmat, so you could try your best and make it like a One-off for yourself.

I don't want to change it anymore by this time, because many People like the way it looks right now and looking at real sumi-e paintings, you'll find the sun quiet often in there too.

R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn and extra 2.25u Shift in the base kit, please. Those keys are more common that the 2u Shift, stepped 1.75 Control and 1.5u Supers that you have in there now. Also, if you want to have 1.5u Supers for Mac and true HHKB layouts, you should add a second 1u Alt.

You also need to add a white R1 Home and white R1 PgUp if you want to cover 65%/75%/1800 layouts without mixing colors in the right column or above the numpad. Instead of doing that, I would just change all of the current 65%/75%/1800 keys to black (that includes: R1 Delete, End, PgDn; R2 PgUp; R3 PgDn; R4 End, Fn) and then just add a white R4 1u Fn for 60%s. This also lets you add R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn without needing to add a white R2 Delete.

From a symmetrical standpoint I would also change this instantly, but I wanted the owner to be able to change the novelties regarding on which deskmat he is currently using.
I think this feature would be cool as an addition to the deskmats.
