[IC] KAT Monochrome - huge kit update
« on: Fri, 05 June 2020, 14:27:42 »


S7-Elephant - Kits: Alpha | Icon Modifiers | Novelties


Manners maketh man!

I have teased this a couple of weeks/months ago on some discord, and here it is! This was supposed to go live at the same time than KAT HFO, but I wanted to wait on the feedback I got from there to finish the kits.

Google Form for Feedback

KAT

All of you should be more or less familiar now with this profile, but for those that are not, here are a couple of things you can check/read:
※ ↠ English link with some images
※ ↠ Chinese link with some more images

If you don't want to go and read, know this: it's higher than GMK, looks like SA whilst being shorter than SA (so, all the pros without the cons) :D
Schematics comparing it to SA and GMK:

AKI-S - Kits: Alpha | Icon Modifiers | FR kit

Colors
Before you guys check the kits, I wanted to mention the colors I’ll be using here:
White: WS2
Black: RAL 000 15 00

Why not CR just like GMK Monochrome was? Simply because I got informed that it was impossible. I will aim for the darkest black possible (and I do think RAL 000 15 00 is quite nice) and I’ll keep you guys updated as samples come in.

In the meantime:

WS2 samples


Black samples - disclaimer: these were not made for me but for another set. I have asked samples matching RAL 000 15 00 but still wanted to share this picture to show the difference with GMK’s CR - as I said before, I’m aiming for the darkest black I can achieve.

KBD19X - Kits: WoB Alphas | WoB Icon Modifiers | WoB Novelties | WoB Numpad

Pricing

TBD once kits are final and we get our quotes. I'll update this section as soon as possible :)
We'll try to get prices as low as possible - you can consult the KAT Oasis prices to have an idea :)

FAQ

* What white will this be?
WS2 - the exact same as I used for GMK Monochrome. I've asked for samples and you can check them in the "colors" section above.

* Why should I buy Monochrome and not another of the BoW/WoB sets?
As I said, I plan on using a WS2 white and use the darkest black available. I will use the updated modifiers icons I used for Hyperfuse and plan on supporting as many layouts/languages as possible. Also, there is a moustache novelty, what else do you need?

* I see you also offer WoB kits, why do it when there already is KAT WOB?
~~So, long story short, when designing the kits and discussing it with people, I got asked to offer a way to have a full WoB/BoW keyboard. Due to how KAT's MOQ works and the fact that I already had the kits "layout", this didn't take much time and I figured why not. I talked about this with OCM and he is 100% on board with me doing this, this is also why I have decided to only offer support for the standard layout, nothing in the lines of 40%, ergo, colvevrak, etc. If you guys want that, I will kindly redirect you to OCM's KAT WOB. I would not have done this without his approval and I thank him for accepting!~~
Forget what I said, given that OCM cancelled WoB, I went and made kits to offer full WoB and BoW compatibility. That means I have... 46 kits, aouch :s Hope you guys like it!

* Where can I get the icons you used?
Ping me, I'll send you the updated ones used for KAT HFO, Monochrome and Iron :)




Thanks

As always, I wanted to thank OCM and Konstantin for their help with the icons. Big thank to fatboycarney for helping me and listening to me rambling all the time and Manzel for the awesome renders!

Change Log:

June 6th: added WoB and BoW compatibility for all kits
June 10th: added R2 novelty for full compatibility with boards like the ION x RAMA Zenith
June 30th: added Arabic and Hiragana alpha kits (a change here and there might still happen, but wanted to add them), added R3 "Up" to all modifiers kits, merged Monochrome/BoW Colevrak+ kit, updated the kit renders reflecting the change from flat keys to scooped for the alphas and the numpad kits. Update the confirmed artisans list. Added a couple more renders to the gallery!

Ok so now I have to decided between this and refined and wob and.... f me
Love it. All this new KAT sets are making my life harder

Edit: Actually quick question, is there any chance of offering the international kits in bow/wob too? since those are part of the alphas.

One of my all-time favorite GMK sets gets the KAT treatment. Yes please!

All of the extra compatibility and colorway options are just icing on top of the top-hat–wearing, handlebar-mustache–sporting, cake.

I for one would prefer the darkest gray over the darkest black.


Would you offer the white F row keys from the dark modifiers in black too so we can have a complete WoB? Especially since KAT WoB is no more.

IMO, Move the spacebars and function keys from the alpha kit and into the mod kit. I can’t imagine that the number of folks buying black alphas and not a TKL kit will need 8 non consecutive function keys. Make alpha just alphas.

Digging the 40s/ortho kits and the mustache novelties. Any chance of getting the mustache/beard combo onto some 1u in addition to the ISO enter?

This is AWESOME. I love that this has novelties, standard KAT font legends, icon mods, all of which KAT Refined is missing.

That being said, I also love the new legend font that KAT Refined uses.

Super hyped for both sets!

So if one wants a full black ortho, you'd have to buy the alphas, ortho and two spacebar kits, since there's only 1 black 1u key. That makes very little sense.


And since you also get spacebars with the alphas, you'd end up with a total of 26 extra unused space bars  :thumb:

Those keys were added in the alpha kit to not increase the price of the "monochrome" modifier kit. This will be changed now that i'm reworking the kits as OCM cancelled KAT WoB. I'll make sure all kits have a BoW and WoB variant in addition to the Monochrome one (what I call monochrome is white alphas and black modifiers).

This was "on purpose" as KAT Monochrome was not supposed to support full WoB/BoW anything except for what could be covered with alpha+modifiers+numpad. Now that OCM cancelled KAT WoB, I'll be reworking the kits and make a BoW and WoB variant in addition to the Monochrome one :-) Stay tuned!

I love the clean look of this set, and the extensive international support offered by all the kits!

I'd like to suggest one more: please add a "Japan Kit" to this set which adds support for Japanese (JIS) layout keyboards.  Note that I am *not* asking for hiragana legends or anything of that ilk, just support for Japanese layout in the same way that you have a France kit to support French layouts.

I've attached an image of what this would entail for this set.  The space bars are optional -- you already have a 3U in your spacebars kit, for example -- but would be nice to have.  The ◯/× symbols are kind of stand-ins for the actual icon mods they represent; see the keys either side of the space bar in these images for examples:


You could also do away with the icon versions entirely and just go for text mods for these keys. Or you could have Japanese-language versions of these keys (無変換/変換 etc.), but I didn't include these because they didn't seem right for this set.

JIS support is currently severely under-represented in the keyboard community, partly because the MOQ mechanisms involved with traditional manufacturers like GMK require a certain amount of momentum to even get started.  My understanding is that KAT makes this easier by having MOQs based on number of keys across all kits, so even if a kit is less popular, it still contributes to the total MOQ.  This affords us the opportunity to stick our toe in the water with JIS-supporting kits.

It would be especially nice to have JIS support for a clean kit like this, with its neutral colour scheme and simple alphas.  Alpha-only kits (without hiragana sublegends) are very popular in Japan, so I'd love to see more support for JIS in kits that aren't otherwise "Japanese-y" like so many of the hiragana sub- and mono- legends that we've had recently (not that they aren't great too!)

Please do give this request consideration as I really think this set could really lead the way on more general JIS support.  I'm happy to answer any further questions either here or privately / on Discord.

Thanks!

[IC] KAT Monochrome - HUGE kit update (BoW/WoB compatibility added)

Hello everyone!

I wanted to thank you all for the support and feedback here/on reddit/on the Google Form (now obsolete due to the new kits). I wanted to ping everyone following as I have listened and have added WoB and BoW variants for ALL kits - hope you enjoy :)

I have seen this online, indeed. I invite all KAT designers to urge Keyrative to get their tooling fixed. I have contacted them (via zFrontier) and have asked an explanation as to what is going to be done to fix the issue. I will comment here when I know what will be done.

As long as the overall total MOQ is reached (which is actually based on the sizes of keycaps - a 6.25u spacebar is worth 6.25 units towards MOQ), all kits are made in whatever quantity they're ordered, even if that's only 1. ;)

I know you have plenty of kits already, but since KAW WoB has been canceled i'm sure that plenty of pleople would welcome a hiragana kit.

That might not fit in with the theme that you're going with though.

its a great time to be alive for wob options

cant believe im asking for more kits but would love to see uk iso included, couldnt see it in there

Is there anything missing from the ISO kits? If so, which keys would be needed?

Give me a few minutes, until all the images have loaded, and I'll check them.

Wow, this set is awesome. Thanks for supporting both types of modifiers in each color and even in 40% kit :thumb:

Great updates!

I believe the 6.25u spacebar in the 40s kits are redundant as there is already a 6.25u spacebar in the alphas kits.

I just got an email from Alex @zFrontier about the issues with Milkshake. The email is quite lenghty with a bunch of pictures and screenshots with conversations with Biip.

Long story short, here is a quote from the mail:
Quote
We are in talks with Keyreative at the moment and they agreed on actively providing replacements

misaligned legends, damaged keys, tinted keys: def a QC issue and they will be providing replacements upon individual reports and work on better QC.

I explained I didn't want the same issues on Oasis/HFO/Monochrome and I do believe they will work harder on the QC (as they should, this could easily kill the profile if nothing is done).

Those that want to see the entire email can ping me on Discord with their email and I can forward it to you.

Have a wonderful day guys!

Just because KATY WoB is now officially dead,
Any chance of a Hiragana Alphas kit?
Pretty please?



I just want to turn this render into reality, that's all  :( :

This is something that got required a couple of times already so I'll definitely look into this and I might look into other alternative alphas if requested :)
