[IC] KAT Comet | GB 2nd November, 2020 | UPDATED 30th OCT
« on: Thu, 25 June 2020, 22:49:44 »

IC Form  Discord
Hello peeps, here I present to you my second keyset-KAT Comet.

The inspiration comes from Hoshimachi Suisei- a Japanese Virtual YouTuber.

The pasta that you are looking for-

Love the effort behind this set, but come on... another weeb set? This isn't more-so directed to you OP, as the effort behind this is obviously there, and there is thought behind it, but I am sick of the constant IC posts themed after Animes. Its just too much at this point. People gotta tone it down a little with these constant Anime themed keyset posts. Its like every other week another one pops up.

Colours-
PANTONE 533C and PANTONE 290C

14/10/2020- I have been informed that my render's lightblue is not accruate to the colour PANTONE 291C
Me with my partners and friends spend some time together and confirmed that, it is lighter than 291C. We actually liked the contrast better with 290C-which is a lighter blue and is closer to the render, so we chose to go with 290c for the GB, Check the picture below for the real life pantone shoot of the samples from Keyrative and PANTONE Chips.

ALL keys with Navy Base with Light Blue Legends Will be GiD blue, samples shoot will be uploaded once Keyrative made the samples.


I replicated the colour used in her offical character setting sheet instead of the live2d model

NICE! KAT COMET! BEEN WAITING FOR THIS! but honestly, this is such a good colorway combination. I always wanted a kat mizu but named an anime girl.

It really does look great! Looking forward to buying this set.

reminds me that I need to address this.
When I was picking colours for the set, I knew it would look like Mizu.
I personally do not own a set or mizu, so what I did is bought some pantone chips and compare it to the renders of mizu on geekhack.
I can't find the pantone mizu used so I don't know if I clashed.
By the renders, my navy is a bit deeper than mizu used and the light blue is lighter. I hope this(and the novelties) is enough to differeciate it from Mizu

Edit: have you considered doing an all light blue mod kit? I feel like it would also look good with the darker alpha set. That way you could have two whole sets and swap them

Surprised to see a vtuber set, novelties are pretty nice and cohesive.

Though it seems inevitable people will draw comparisons with Mizu, including myself lol.

Personally find the theme to match this type of colour scheme way better than Mizu. Ive always associated water nation with light blue and white, but maybe thats just me.

Anyhow Im in, Mizus alphas are way too dark irl to my liking anyway.

I rather see a lighter dark blue and a darker light blue. The dark blue that's chosen is not saturated for her bold navy. The light blue that's selected is a little bright for her hair.

I am still considering the colours, I probably will not change the light blue but I might change the navy, let me know in the IC form!

Im IN, looks so good!

Edit: have you considered doing an all light blue mod kit? I feel like it would also look good with the darker alpha set. That way you could have two whole sets and swap them
I'm afraid that the chances of adding 2 more mod kits is very low, I know the way KAT does moq allows us to run it with many kits, but as the number of kits increases, vendors will have a much harder time sorting out the orders, not to mention Keyrative WAYYY overpackage their kits, so shipping is also a big issue, I will discuss this issue when I have vendors and come back to you

I'm think I'm going to start commenting this on all keycap ICs that I'm even mildly interested in:

Where's the numpad enter novelty?
soon(tm), I actually have an idea for a numpad enter novelty, will contact novelties guy to see if he can do it.

Also I think incorporating grey something would be nice since her outfit is primarily grey
I actually planned to throw some grey into the mods (e.g. esc, enter, spacebar), but when kig makes me render and the effect is really not that great
If you have some ideas how I can incorporating grey into the kits. please let me know in discord or IC form!

Thank you for the correcting the Pantone picture alignment. It's not not perfect but it's good enough.

I like this color scheme and the fact that it's in KAT. However, currently the novelties does not particularly stand out for me. Would be nice if you could add something that relates to her character more like being a sociopath and a shotacon. Maybe Tetris?

I was going to add an axe and some mysterious structures made by 4 blocks to the novelties, if you joined the discord you might saw me posting some drafts earlier
Decided not to deviate too much, adding personality is one thing, not many people acutally watch Vtubers, let alone Suisei.
Adding those elements you mentioned might make people confuse, I would rather have novelties that relates to her design and theme.
Let me know in the IC if you really want to see them, I might replace some novelties in the purposed kit now.

Also she's not a shotacon, thanks

Looks cool. A couple things:

Please provide the row markings for novelties. In the ortho/40s kit, the only 1u options in R2 are ESC and TAB. If there's a 1u novelty for R2, then I don't ask for anything more. If there's not, I'll ask for one because not everybody has TAB or ESC there. Some people have CTRL, Colemak users have BKSP, etc. A 1u novelty there at least allows folks that don't use TAB or ESC to put something besides those.

In the Hiragana kits the dakuten and handakuten are currently connected to a "he" kana. Please consider making them standalone (like this keyboard ) or be connected to an outlined square (like Apple's keyboard) instead of "he." As written, it looks like those keys are only "be" and "pe" respectively, and the dakuten and handakuten can be used with many more kana.

Edited for proofing.

There is no 1u novelty in the purposed novelties kit now, I will add one in the revised version of the novelties. Thanks for mentioning this.

For the  ゙ and  ゚. My initial plan was to make them standalone. As I am using OCM's hiragana files, I don't feel it's good to alter his work and i should just use it as is.
I will ask OCM if he feels comfortable for me to alter the legends and make them standalone.

Thanks for the feedback

A couple of comments:

I assume this is done on purpose but why not add the ISO enter and short shift key to the French/North kit? That would make it way easier for people that only need those kits.

As it stands, there is no compatibility in the novelty kit for boards like the Zenith or the J-01 since there is no R2 1u novelties

Also, I see the info on the Hiragana kit, but not on the rest: are you using flat and barred keys or barred and scooped or another combo? This would be for all apha kits and the numpad kit :)

It's just KLE, when the kits layouts are solid, the render wont have this issue

I.. uh.. just forgot to add those in because I used the KLE mcnos provided me. I made a UKISO kit but didn't go back to add those into the french/north kit. I will fix it tomorrow and update the kle.
Idon't know if I should add full compatibility for those boards, I will need to add 3 for alternating colour and 5 for all navy, but I'm adding r2 1u novelties so I guess I will do it.
when kig feel confortable to do it I will order the renders

they will be barred

As a Hololive fan, I really like this set. The effort invested in the novelties is a really nice touch.

As for the people talking about this being a "Mizu clone," please consider the following:
1.) Different inspiration
2.) Completely different novelties
3.) Different profile
4.) Lacking one of Mizu's 3 main colors (WS1)

Additionally, please use the search feature on this forum and look up SA Flatline.

TL;DR a designer named Mito said he would never run SA Pulse again so someone made a similar (but different) colorway and design in SA for the community since the general idea for the colorway was so popular. Mito cried about it but eventually decided to break the 'promise' he made and ran SA Pulse again.  :)
(I can't possibly contain the full context here, please read the Flatline thread)

IMHO, this set is an even clearer cut case than Flatline was because of the reasons I outlined above. There are so many sets in IC these days that some overlap is to be expected.

First of all, this isn't a Mizu clone. We have now reached the point that any color combination will resemble a previous color combination. So just let it go. No one has copyright on these color schemes.


Second, who cares if the inspiration is weeb. I don't have anything with that either but I like the colors.

To OP, please consider doing Ortho/40s in icon mods and ideally as separate kits. Furthermore, I would like to see 1.5u space keys included.

I love these colors and this would give me the compatibility I need, so I would be absolutely in on this.

It needs more Sui
for someone who has done so much i think she deserves better

*Started with humble Beginnings
* was an independent Vtuber until she joined Hololive
*drew and animated her avatar
*use to handle her own video editing
*Tetris Queen she can read interact with chat while placing blocks down real quickly

Sui has been chasing her dream of becoming an idol on a big stage
she was not pulling the numbers joined Hololive then with those numbers on her 3D Debut stream"that trended worldwide on twitter BTW"                                                                                   

On her debut she had a dream of becoming an Idol who would sing in a big stage
that became true after her 3D debut and she sang and danced live in front of thousands of people and also sung 2 songs she wrote herself.

ANYWAY
TAKE MY MONEY AND CAN WE HAVE AN AXE because Hoshimachi Suisei is a psychopath at times and could we have a artisan!!

i wonder if it could become official!! and i would pay to get Suisei a set as its based on her!!!

Take my money !!! im all in on this one !!!! Hiragana set LETS GOOO

copy pasta from discord:

Hey guys, it has been brought to my attention that some of you want to make KAT Comet an official /approved product of Hololive, and some of you wondering about if it violates the intellectual property rights of Cover Corp./hololive project. Based on my knowledge and the fanart guidelines in Japanese(yes I used my scuffed Japanese and deepl translator), it should be fine as long as I do not promote this as an "official product" made by the said companies.

So, to be sure about this, I've sent an email to Cover Corp. to confirm if I violated any of their rights, if I would need an official license, or I could just proceed with the project as is.

Depending on the response, one of the following events might happen.
1. Set will proceed as is, nothing happens
2. Sets cancelled due to violation of IP rights.
3. I paid for the official license and this will become an approved project
4. Hololive themselves joined the making of the set and this becomes an official merch(unlikely)
5.Sets cancelled due to I'm too broke for license
6.sui chan doesn't like it so sets cancelled
7.idk maybe I died of stroke tmr

I'll try my best to be as transparent on this as I can, I will post an update when I HAVE an update

I'll try my best to be as transparent on this as I can, I will post an update when I HAVE an update

Why would you do this? Like all other kit runners, just say "inspired by" and avoid any actual copyright infringment with naming/novelties.

I'd love for this to get some official recognition, maybe even send her a set to use!
Signatures in 2020? More likely than you think.

By the renders, my navy is a bit deeper than mizu used and the light blue is lighter. I hope this(and the novelties) is enough to differeciate it from Mizu

My Ignorant Zealotry Understated, Must I Zigzag Underhandedly? Of course not! Now, color comparisons will be unavoidable; novelties in your IC are different enough to drive the point home, though, so that shouldn't be much of an issue.

With that said, I have a few quick comments on the kits, as they stand now:

- Moving the R4 `~ keycaps (alpha-colored and mod-colored) from both alpha kits to the mods kits was an astute decision... but needs to be done with the 1.5U R3 \| keycap(s) as well: right now, only the dark blue version is present in either mod kit.

- R4 1U \| keycaps are missing in both alphas kits.

- Hiragana and alt Hiragana kits provide vertical ("ISO") Enter keys, but I think a 1.25U left Shift should be provided, too. Remember some users will need to move the keycap to the <> position because of the way the PCBs are made.

- F1..F4 and F9..F12 in dark blue should be available as well. If a user went with "alt alphas" or "alt hiraganas", he or she would have an entirely dark blue keyboard, except for those eight function keys.

- All the non-USA kits provide for vertical Enter keys (and 1.25U left Shift keys, except the Hiragana ones), but I wonder if it would be best to simply add one and one to each mods kit.

- French, North and UK ISO are missing AltGr (but consider adding it on the mods kits).

- UK ISO: add R2 \| there and make it UK+US ("English") ISO.

- French: the specs for French layouts actually mandate the accented letters be presented in lowercase: , but you have them in uppercase... with the notable exception of instead of . Choose one or the other (uppercase, to stick it to the Frenchies!!!  :)) ), but be consistent.

the pipe keys will be added when I order photorealistic renders for every kits, thank you for letting me know

I am considering moving the UKISO kit with the mods, so I can remove the ISO keys in all the language kits, will have a decision on it and update soon.

Navy F1..F4 and F9..F12 are also the thing I missed, they will 100% be added to the alt alphas

KAT Mizu comments are incoming, but what these two sets share in common, they also share in differences. Mizu has more contrast, this is more subdued.

I like it but I wish there was more creativity with this set like incorporating tetris, anemachi, her psychopathic personality (her axe) to name a few. Maybe more can be done with the novelties as well instead of focusing on stars.

Love the alt alpha set, looks like calm depths set.
Will be joining after lived, very nicely done.
