[IC] KAT Arctic (GB live!)
« on: Mon, 10 February 2020, 14:17:37 »
Hiya

Visit the group buy page here

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=106046.0


This is the KAT version of JTK Arctic, which I ran in 2018 and was finished sometime in 2019.

Backstory to why I'm doing KAT. Someone kept bugging me to rerun in SA so.. I decided to do KAT.



Take a look and provide any insight or suggestions in the IC for me to see.

Colors are not entirely up to par as of yet so take a look at the sub-par photos with a grain of salt.

I did my best to take the photos in different lighting settings

Since KAT doesn't have kit MOQs, can you do a small space kit with 6.25 and 7u in blue? Pretty please.

Yup, but what I meant since there is no MOQ per kit, you can make a standard space set for people who just want to add another color to the board.

Well done - the frost bite alphas with the mods look great. You've got me considering a blue set for the first time in recent memory.

I liked the snowflakes and penguin from JTK. Any chance there will be a RAMA, Salvun, or similar novelty?

depend on the render of blue alpha and white mods, might be interested in white ergo too if possible.

as for novelties, the snowflake and the original animals are good enough imo

the first good colorway in KAT! sick! I'm definitely in :D hmm I like text only mods but I also like the GMK style where control, alt, delete, esc are text and only some things are icons, will that be offered or is the icons kit icons only? I'll take white alphas with colevrak-addon and grey text (maybe icons) mods :)

Agreed on novelties.

I'm assuming the arrow keys will have to be text?  Symbols look nicer in my opinion, but certainly not a requirement.  But more importantly, could we have the arrows keys the blue accent color as per the original set?

Yeah, pretty much just the alphas was what I was thinking--maybe the green sublegends from the number row, but not the extra symbols.  That is too much for sure.

This national layout, and the Iberoamerican layout, should be perfect testbeds for the capabilities (and results) of KAT keycaps with multiple cornered legends (as opposed to one or two centered).

I don't plan to have any sub legends. I did that with Fuyu already so I'm quite done for it for now.
