[IC] Infinikey: PBT Islander - GB May 15 to 29 Deskmats added
« on: Tue, 14 April 2020, 12:32:55 »




Changes
The leaf, bag, and fossil have been modified to be less IP heavy.
225 Fishing rod novelty has been sized to fit a 1.5 novelty now.
A variation of fishing novelties has been added to 1.5 and is mirrored across the sides.
1.25 Fishing novelty has also been mirrored.
Added blue 1.25 Shift to Extension Kit for 40s users who will use this on the right side.
Added green 1.75 Shift for 40s users to use on the left side.
Added blue 1.00 Shift to Extension kit for Minivan users that will use this on the right side.
Changed blue 2u Shift to green as this is actually used on the left side.
Added brown accented leaf to novelties for 40s users to use as an escape novelty.
Added blue tilde-grave.
Added blue and green (whatever the name of that) ISO key.
Moved accent arrows and numpad enter to add on kit.
Removed 1.5u "Function" keys from Add On kit, as there is already a 1.5u Alt and Fn in Base Kit.
Centered icons.

Added Canadian Proxy.

Inspiration
Just like many have, I missed out on the New Horizons edition Switch -- this is me over compensating.
If you couldn't get the switch, can't get the switch, already had one... here's your chance to get it on your keyboard.
With the power of PBT this set is going to have the massive novelty kit it deserves.

Mentions

If you need novelty work done, highly recommend.

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes! Would buy all three kits right now if able.

Onto feedback/Questions:
-Could you add/change some of the R3/4 novelties in 1.25u to be 1.5u? I'd love to have a slingshot and a net in 1.5u.
-I'd be interested in a second set of just alphas if they were offered.
-What are the RAL or Pantone colors codes you are using? And, more specifically, what colors are you color-matching for the blue, green, and brown?

Big extension kits for Infinikey are pretty typical. It has a lot to do with their MOQ system. See PBT Græn or Infinkey Pastel PBT for comparison. They have large extension kits as well.

From my understanding of what I've been told, there's a bottom line a per-kit pricing that comes from this manufacturer where price-per-key largely benefits from larger kits. And since these kits are much cheaper to manufacture and therefore sell, there's room in the budget to sell it as such. This also makes sure that there are plenty of these obscure child kits in the wild, easier to acquire after the fact.

GMK Cafe's 40's kit was $53. This add on kit might be less than that while containing all of these other bits. :)

Is it possible to get a quick overview of what layouts the base kit will cover?

People bombarded the GMK Mudkip IC with this question, but I don't see any mention here. Is TKC/Infinikey going to produce a kit tied so closely to Nintendo? The novelties are essentially cloned from the game which seems like an immediate takedown/cease and desist request once it gets on a product page. Love the idea and want to see it happen, but curious if it will run in current form.

I'm going to guess that the reason Mudkip got bombarded so hard was because it's using a strait character and name. While I know some of these may mimic a bit close, I'm open to modifications. I at the very least made very sure not use character art which are the heavy hitters of IP (imo).

This is day 1 IC level at the moment so I'm not going to make any declarations, or claim to be a legal mind. But believe-you-me this will get made while still holding the resemblance people love it for. :)

Thanks for your concern and less abrasive approach.

Interesting choice of colors (I'd now need to have not a beige case, but a sand colored one).

Regarding the layout, I see its following Infinikey's actually pretty good template for the base and expansion kits. That said, there are a couple suggestions I'd make to improve this IC (and the template).

1) The base kit has two `~ keys, as is standard: alpha-colored and a mod-colored. That said, in this key there's "left-mod" (green" and "right-mod" (blue colors), and this key is only available as left-mod. Perhaps there could be an additional right-mod version of it, for the compat 60% keyboards that move it to the right side of the keyboard.

2) Swap the R3 #~ (UK-only) in the base kit with the R3 \| (US only) key in the expansion kit. This is a problem shared with all the recent Infinikey sets, which (IMNAAHO) should be solved before it gets "codified", so to speak, as the "correct" way (which... isn't). For extra brownie points, an R4 <> keycap could be added, to allow both PC style and terminal style to be supported.

Tried that, two things:

1. Killed uniformity of contrast
2. Removed regular dyesub compatibility.
