[IC] PBT Blue Cyrillic - GB date is set, Oct 16-30, 2020!
« on: Thu, 02 July 2020, 13:31:03 »
PBT Blue Cyrillic

Dalsu asked me to make him a blue Cyrillic set, I said ok. It’s that simple. Here it is.



Render by Manzel

This will be made by Infinikey and run by TKC.

Proxies

MoQ is 100

Any other keys that you want to see? Trying to keep this a simple set with just a base kit. But if there's enough interest for other things, happy to do that.

Always love to see more Cyrillic ♥

Now, it looks like this is somewhere in the middle in terms of Cyrillic legend goodness/badness. Some of the worst offenders (Д, Л) from Cherry's god-forsaken OG legends have been fixed, but there's still a couple of bad eggs in there (Й, Ю, Ъ, Ч etc.). Since this is dye sub and you have full freedom, I would suggest basing the sublegends on GMK Yuri's Cyrillics kit or GMK Perestroika. The Cyrillic legends in those sets are much more accurate in terms of letter shape and proportions.

If you need any help with this, don't hesitate to reach out on Discord, I'd love to help (anything for Cyrillic) :)

Almost perfect.
Please add ISO support with R3 Tilde/grave/Ё (and Ё should be placed at the bottom as other cyrillic characters).

Is there any way you can add an extra set of alphas but with red sublegends? Been looking for a WoB Cyrillic with red subs for a while

Thats a common praxis in chyna because mostly we offer high res renders in interest checks. Check aliexpress for some sets with novelties from all famous sets.

Is it the legends in the render? If not, can you share the image, or can you get your render artist to update the render so it matches the legends that the set will use?

Their render artist is currently away. When they come back or they have a new one, I will be able to have their legends rendered properly!

Thanks! Those look more consistent than the current sublegends, since they're all from a single typeface. Looks like they used Arial Cyrillic Rounded Bold (it has quite distinctive К, Ж and Ь shapes). It won't be an exact match for the Cherry / Helvetica Rounded Bold font used on the regular legends, but it comes quite close.

unless hes specifically changing them, i'm fairly certain infinikeys standard latin typeface is Arial rounded as well.

Yes, keeping them to their standard legends. Not going to make any changes to them.

It's Helvetica Rounded Bold. Check the Q, R and G glyphs.

Quick update today.

The sale date is set! I have confirmed with TKC that the sale will run on October 16-30, 2020.

I have also worked on a few different kits. We will have both red and purple alpha kits available and I think a quite robust add-on/compatibility kit.

Working on pricing and renders for all kits currently.

Would moving the ISO enter to the base kit be sufficient for ISO users? I have a lot of ISO compatibility in the add-on kit. I'm also trying to keep the base kit price as low as possible. Interested to hear your thoughts!

Currently just vendors for USA and Canada. Will update if others are added.

You need four keys for basic ISO support in base:
  • ISO Enter
  • R4 1.25u Shift
  • R3 1u alpha key – recommended: \|
  • R4 1u alpha key – recommended: <>
Then you can put ISO-UK keys in the add-on kit.

Nice! Looking forward to this. Long but hey, it's better that not getting one. Hopefully, the asia vendor would be accepting Credit Card payments, like IlumKB and ZF.

• This kit is missing a R1 1u Pg Dn key (next to R1 Delete and End) for 1800/CP/96-key support.

• A R4 1u 0 numpad key is also missing for the aforementioned layouts.

• The extra `~ and \| keys are unnecessary as this is a two-tone set (mods are the same color as the alphas). For that reason, these two keys can be removed.

• The blue / sublegend on the main 1.5u \|/ key should be moved to the top right, and Ё on the `~ Ё key should be moved to the bottom right. See this reference for the Russian layout. If you were referencing other sets that did it differently, those sets were probably wrong.

• The R1 1u \| is missing a blue / sublegend in the top right.

• Please consider adding basic ISO support to the kit, in the form of four keys: ISO Enter, R4 1.25u Shift, R3 \| /, R4 <>.

• Another key worth considering would be a 2u Shift. This key is very popular with Eastern audiences, it's used on 60% layouts with arrows, and it can also be useful as a 2u left space for Alice and similar boards (the kit currently only includes 2.25u and 2.75u).

For reference, this is where I'm sitting at with the base kit right now https://imgur.com/a/OofLQQc.

I will look at including the ISO support, 1u 0 and 2u shift as well (these are all currently in the add-on kit). I'm just waiting for renders on all of these.
