[IC] ePBT DuckLight: A dark duck themed set
« on: Mon, 09 March 2020, 17:51:48 »

    Made in collaboration with logo4poop
    ePBT Ducklight is a brand new keycap set, with a dark duck theme. We have been working hard on it, and hope you will consider ePBT Ducklight.

    Why ePBT instead of ***?
    We have decided to go with ePBT to do something because of the oversaturation of GMK and KAT sets running right now. We also believe that PBT is a superior plastic to use for most use cases.

    I like the colours. Would like to see non-accented spacebars, arrows, return and esc. I know thatís a lot of extra caps but picking which accents to use or not is half the fun.

    Like the idea - would appreciate ISO UK being added (the '@ and #~ are already in the kit, but bizarrely no 1.25u shift, r1 \|, iso enter - and full ISO UK would also need r4 `¨ 2" 3£).

    Also, seconding alpha coloured spacebars.

    This looks like it will require reverse dye sub. Has ePBT confirmed they are willing to do this? Hive was originally ePBT but had to change vendors due to this.

    I might just be blind, but is there a 1.25u key for the "ASDF" row in either of the kits (besides the enter keys)? Lots of 40% use that key

    There should be one on 40% kit R3.

    So EPBT is doing reverse dye-sub for the first time, and 40% keys for the first time? They have historically resisted doing both of these for years. It's ambitious and would open up a lot of new options for keyset designers if it works out. Good luck.

        correct me if i'm wrong but on the 40s kit image, the tab key looks like it's row4?

        Its PBT! We haven't had much requests for deskmats, but we will consider it!

        Hopefully we can do a non-yellow set soon!

        That will probably not happen, it just makes more sense with it in there.

        Even just taking spacebars out of the 40s kit and putting them in the spacebar kit? My understanding was that epbt doesnt have moq for child kits and pricing should be the same since its not adding keys.

        Oh cool a Colevrak kit! Can you add a closing bracket key (]) to R3? Then I'm buying a set!

        Spotting two and a half errors: Base contains R3 +, but no R2 -. Also, the plus is _massive_ (that's the half an error, maybe it's just an issue with the rendering).
        And: The comma key in the international kit doesn't contain a comma, just a semicolon. If you wanna make the international kit support very complete, you could add AltGr and a numpad comma, but I guess those are not the most important keys.

        I don't understand the benefit of removing space bars from the 40% kit. Some 40% layouts don't need the space bars kit. Why should people have to buy more kits they don't need?
