KAT SPACE DUST


【MISSION DIRECTIVES】

Welcome Space Cadet!

You are invited to the launch of a keycap set that was brought together by cosmic forces and a shared passion of the aesthetic of the limitless aether, for a peculiar community interested in the design of advanced instruments that are finely calibrated for optimal thocking (keebs).
Space exploration is the pinnacle of mankind’s scientific and technological innovation; however it often springs from a universal child-like curiosity of the unfathomable heavens.
This design aims to celebrate this playful spirit, whilst incorporating the intoxicating indigo hues of interstellar space dust. There is something eternally entrancing and enigmatic about the beauty of interstellar dust and nebulae, and we hope we have captured some of that magic in this set.

Your mission objective, if you choose to accept it, is to procure the modules that will enhance the specialised equipment at your command.

Good luck and Godspeed!

FAQ
More
※  Do you consider the colours/font/icons/kits final?
No. We are open to suggestions.
Feedback is greatly appreciated and welcomed, so please check our IC form, where we are seeking answers to multiple specific considerations we had in mind. Although we may feel that some factors are pretty close to our final goals, we will change course if there is significant consensus and/or expertise opinion regarding feasible adjustments.

※ What languages are the Alien text?
First off, "I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords"
The Alphas are based off a sci-fi TV show from the 80s called V. It is the language of an invading alien race called the Visitors who are reptilian humanoids.
The Modifiers are a different language in fact, and are based off the classic games Commander Keen and Minecraft.
Although there are many Alien languages we researched to potentially pick from, we ultimately picked what complemented each other, and also would not lead to IP issues.

※  Why so many kits?
The manufacturer Keyreative MOQ structure permits us to do so. As long as the overarching goal of the minimum number of keycap “units” sold for production is met, all kits will be made.
This approach should be applauded; giving those who enjoy using less popular layouts an opportunity to purchase a set for their favoured form. It also embraces the customizability spirit of this hobby, offering people their pick of legends for alphas and modifiers. So if you want your whole keyboard to be totally incomprehensible, that should be a readily obtainable goal.
We're still working on making our kitting correct, so let us know what we've forgotten!

※  Why a 60% only modifier kit? Also what about a 65/75% only kit?
There are many who prefer to fly with a smaller vehicle, yet despite their reduced footprint have to pay similar expenses for base modules they don’t need.  So we’re eliminating the overhead cargo (arrows and TKL navigation keys), as an option, so it hopefully mean more credits for hologram modules and star charts. Unfortunately we couldn’t manage to do it for 65% and 75% users as there are too many R2-R4 navigation key variations to specifically cater to.

※ Will you support other languages?
Maybe, but unlikely. We already have a large number of kits, thus reluctant to add more alphas. However if you are really keen on something, let us know in the IC form and we will consider it. Also let us know what colour/pattern you’d like it in.

※ Will you do Modifiers with Icon and Text legends combined?
No. Reason similar to above.

※ Price estimates?
Too soon to say, please refer to previous KAT sets for a sense of price ranges, although there are multiple variables that would differentiate our final kit prices from theirs.

※ Will you consider making a particular novelty/desk mat idea I have in mind?
Maybe, but unlikely unless it is particularly interesting and feasible. We already have a large variety of novelties, thus we’re more interested in finding out what to keep and what to shed.
The likelihood of your idea appearing in this kit may increase if you send us a SVG file that you’ve personally illustrated, alongside written consent permitting us free use for commercial purposes :P.

※ Will you collaborate with a certain Artisan/Cable maker I have in mind?
Potentially. Let us know in the IC form who you want. We’ll try our best!
If you’re a maker, please PM/DM us on Discord, or send an email to XXX@gmail.com

※ Do the Space Dog and Space Cat have names?
Yes, our spooce doggo is named Zeta Pup, short for Zeta Puppis, which is also known as the star Naos ("roaring bright one"). It is a blue supergiant, and one of the hottest, and most luminous stars visible to the naked eye.It has been extensively studied because of its rareness and relative closeness to Earth. Zeta is rare and close to our hearts.

Spooce Kitty is named Space Kat. Self-explanatory.


※ What about 1800 layout users? [i.e. R5 Delete, Insert, Home, End, Pg Up, Pg Dn]
We didn’t want to add extra keys/cost to the modifier kits for what we presume to be a super niche layout user base, so we’re making an executive call to keep them out from the Modifiers, F-row, and Numpad kits. Hopefully users can just supplement these missing keys with Novelties/Artisans instead. If there’s demand (complete Feedback Form), we can make a small 1800 layout users kit.

※ Which switch should I get?
Sir, this is a Wendy’s. People tell me that Box navies and jades don’t make sounds in space.

※ Where’s the nearest black hole?
Check your wallet ;)

I posted a comparison in the FAQ section of my comment. It's shorter than SA but slightly taller than Cherrym it is also sculpted.

Hey! Love the idea of this set. I see that you'll be going with reverse dye-subbing with a lot of your keys, and was wondering how they'd be obtainable with a portion of your keys, the majority being in the Novelties Kit.



From what I understand, reverse dye-subbing involves the base plastic colour (the legends) being dyed around the legend. If this was the case, how would you be able to produce all these multi-coloured legend keys with a single base plastic colour? It might be an oversight on my part, but I'm intrigued to see what you have done to hopefully resolve this issue. There are also some issues regarding to line thicknesses and gaps, but the glaring concern is that only a few of these keys will be able to be produced via reverse dye-subbing as it stands as you can't dyesub lighter colours than the base.

Hi, co-designer of Space Dust here.
We made contact with Keyreative early on with renders of these novelties, and enquired about their feasibility and they said it should be doable.
Of course we will be double check technical limitations with them again, and try to aim to get earlier samples (if possible), to allay concerns.

Hi, I've sent a DM. Please feel free to give us further feedback there :). We agree there's a fair bit of spit and polish still, and the whole formatting of the post could do some work. But we also wanted to push ahead to get other opinions and poll results regarding kit preferences etc. There's a few clear trends that are arising from the feedback poll which will help us decide what to keep, what to cut, and how to make everything more refined.

I'm not sure if it's intentional or an oversight but the 'extended' mods offer black base with gradient labels in the 'alien' font, while the 60%-only mods only offer black base with icons. I would be in for 60% black base with the alien gradient labels but don't need a full TKL.

Another thing to consider - you don't offer 40%/etc kits. I don't have a board like that myself and personally don't care if they're included or not but one thing which I imagine must be annoying is finding the exact right size key with the correct label for the function. With the 'alien' font it wouldn't matter what the label is as long as the size is correct, so maybe a 40%/etc kit is worth adding.

Ah yes, that's an oversight. Going by polling trends, black base modifiers are really popular, and we want to make sure we offer alien variants for those.

nvm the request, most of the keysets were hidden with the more button! already say what I wanted. In for sure! Just waiting for the group buy. Any chance of info for expected lead time once GB is over?

Thanks for the feedback. Other helpful members have DM'd us with many other examples of issues with the legends. We'll attempt to rectify and update images. Rendering so many kits has led to a bunch of simple mistakes, such as forgetting to double check alignments etc.
We also plan to cull some kits that aren't polling so well, and add glaring forgotten ones (i.e. black background mods with alien legends for 60%). The feedback form has been very insightful!

This set is straight up hot.  I am typically not one for gradient sets but I think this one straight up slaps. I also share concerns about the manufacturing capabilities of the novelties using reverse dye-sub. Will the novelties be pad printed perhaps or maybe use another technique rather than reverse dye sub? That said, the design on the novelties, they are super cute and I love the colors.

Any chance you'll add an International-Kit? Since this is KAT it would be easy to do.
Yes, that's the plan!
Glad to hear, I would be in! Great work, man!

Yeah, so, turns out, even though I put a decent number of hours into making this, it's still very broken, and there is a lot of refinement needed, I just thought that maybe I'd like to risk it and post an IC with what I have so far to gauge if this was really an idea worth pursuing, that being said, I had seen some previous "bad" ICs like GMK Holy Panda, and I did some more research, so, I am in no position to say that I am experienced in this field nor can I say that I can speak for every new designer, but I would like to say that Geek Hack, as it is, is one of the most dangerous and hostile places to showcase a design, albeit without it, keycap designing would not exist in the full volume that it does today, but I would seriously think about creating a way for "pre-IC" concepts to be posted on GH. I know that the mods and whoever manage this site have been plagued about this, but I just wanted to remind them, and I'm not telling you how to do your job, I just think that if GH were more concept friendly, this community could grow in an order of magnitude. As for the ISO, (the main point of this comment, haha) I will add a blue ISO enter as well, to both kits, I just personally really like the black ISO enter.

Ortho needs icon mods, they outsold ortho text in literally every KAT GB!  Would love to se the ortho mods black base as well!

All in all a very confusing IC, quit trying to reinvent the wheel and look at how other successful KAT sets are doing their kitting.

Ortho needs icon mods, they outsold ortho text in literally every KAT GB!  Would love to see the ortho mods black base as well!
All in all a very confusing IC, quit trying to reinvent the wheel and look at how other successful KAT sets are doing their kitting.
Ortho kit is currently this (https://i.imgur.com/G6J3lJq.png) which has icon mods [kindly ignored scuffed alignment and sizing consistency issues of legends].
We hear you about black base; that's ended up with lot more positive response than we thought... and now we have to take a good long hard look at what kits we keep, and/or tweak and what to throw out. Will honestly confess that the black base mods were added as an afterthought, as we were originally working with blue base mods as the core.
We will touch up our IC over the next few days, to make it a bit less confusing, and also cull a few of the unpopular options to make things a bit leaner.
We're not really reinventing the wheel. We used KAT refined's F-row split off idea, to split it from the standard mod kit.
We also made just a budget 60% only version of the mod variations (i.e. how KAT Cyberspace did a TKL-only kit - but he simplified by just making it one complete set with preset alphas).
All other kits are just standard based on KAT monochrome's kit structure.
However, we suffer from offering too many options at this stage given that we have both Alien and English alphas, multiple Mod legends options from Alien, Icon, Text, and two different Mod backgrounds (blue and black), and also sometimes offering mono-colours instead of gradient.
As we get further Gform feedback, we have a good idea of how to help slim things down, and potentially come up with executive decisions on what we will finally offer.

sounds good. else you would limit the ISO users to the black mods, which i seem to have overlooked before creating my post.

I love this set! I've been following your posts on Reddit and I'm excited to see it come this far!

I like how half of the comments in this thread are something like "this is great" and the other half are like "this is a mess." Polarizing set, I guess. I really like the alien alphas though, will definitely be picking up a set of those!

« Reply #96 on: Sat, 12 September 2020, 12:10:05 »
Hello! Sorry that progress updates have been slow, I have a habit of not liking to release things until I have a substantial amount of work done, I don't like releasing small updates, but don't worry, I'm not dead, and neither is the set. There have been a lot of new ideas that we have been working with, some ideas that we have had to cut, and a lot of thinking involved in regards to novelty kitting. That being said, I thought that I'd release a semi-major update: full-sized mods have been updated, Lazer mods are gone, and now all variants have a black version, only the black mods have the continuation of the gradient, doing it with the blue mods creates legibility issues. We also have a few new novelties to leak, so stay posted for those, or, you can join the discord server for early leaks. https://discord.gg/kYqCFJB

There any chance you make an Alpha set with purple legend on blue caps. That make this set a little bit like MiTo's Laser, but it will be fk nice  :eek:

If you flip the numpad gradients from purple→cyan to cyan→purple, then you get a nice purple→cyan→purple gradient for 100% and 1800 boards and cyan→purple→cyan gradient for southpaw boards.

Love the colorway, especially the gradient aspect, and will be getting it, but the desk mat and the novelty keys that share those... graphics.. with the desk mat, are pretty lame. I'm not huge fan of the "cute" stuff, but they ca be done okay. That desk mat looks like a mess. It, and the some of the novelty keycaps, look like a 12 year old girl put a bunch of those cheep binder stickers that existed back when i was in middle school, all over the place.

Stumbled upon a desktop wallpaper  by, what looks to be, the same artist. It should match your desk mat nicely.
It would also be pretty easy to have one of the like, hundred companies, that do custom desk mats, to print one up for anyone that is so inclined.

Apologies for the lack of updates, as thus far we've only updated this IC post with some new (but old) renders.
We're still cleaning up our kitting for the obscure kits, waiting for prototypes of Keyreative to ensure novelty designs can be executed too.
We have 2 new deskmats too; completed the planet designs for numpad/f-row; and have added and removed a few novelties. Sorry no images thus far, but hopefully soon (tm)


Is there going to be a blanks kit like shown in some of the renders?
 
Yes there will be blanks column gradient keycaps seen in some of the 65% renders
 
Can't wait for this to get into GB :D
Thanks, we can't wait too.

Gosh I love the kit, but I really need an ISO enter in the Mod kit for 65% and up, I need it to justify the black hole in my wallet
We're going to do iso, but we'll have to calculate if demand is worth integrating it into that kit, increasing overall price. Terminal Iso though is much easier to integrate than Regional UK Iso.

Looking great, hope the IC is going good!  ;D
:) TY!

My deskmat is ready for this.

Looks good! I like the fun space vibe.

Definitely liking this. I don't know normally go for a dark base on caps, but I like this, and I am thinking I am going to fall in love with KAT.

There will be an ortho kit confirmed. Sorry we just haven't updated our kit images yet.

Appreciate the feedback. We deliberately went for a cuter childlike fun of space vibe. Might not be your thing, but it will be for some others. Some of the less well-executed novelties are going to be culled though.

If you flip the numpad gradients from purple→cyan to cyan→purple, then you get a nice purple→cyan→purple gradient for 100% and 1800 boards and cyan→purple→cyan gradient for southpaw boards.
Consideration noted!

These look amazing! Count me in!!
Glad to have you join us!

I truely want to get this in this year, when GB ?
We've confirmed 3 regional vendors and hopefully this week I finalise the rest. We're mainly waiting on prototypes from the manu re: reverse multi-dyesub novelties to ensure our technical demands are met, hence partially why there's been some radio silence, as we don't want to move to GB and find out a lot of our novelties aren't going to work out.

Sorry for sporadic updates. Will try to be more active.

※ “Galileo” //9 Planets Numpad - WIP


※ Polaris //NORDE


※ Sirius //South


F-row of 9 planets + Sun, moon and asteroids incoming.
Re-renders of new novelties kit (i.e. the dolphin, vacuum cleaning man, zeta chasing shooting star enter key; with other keys culled), and updated Mods kitting (we were missing a few keys, i.e. 1.75u  and 1.5u right shift keys) should be coming a long soon.

Current Vendors List:
※ Boardsource.xyz (US)
※ DeskHero (Canada)
※ Daily Clack (Oceania)
※ Funkeys (Ukraine, Russia, Belarus)
※ Fancycustoms (South America)

EU/UK, ASIA and SEA - TBD; potentially Zfrontier and Hexkeyboards for the latter two regions.
DM me if there is a vendor/region we haven't considered.

Collabs thus far:
Artisans: Keylabs, Keycravings and Melonkeys have expressed interest. We have held off contacting other artisan makers until GB date is set. DM to let me know who else to consider.
Cables: Spacecables. DM to let me know who else to consider, especially in non NA regions.
Considering sticker and cute merchandise too.

We also have two new desk mat designs that are a bit more minimal in taste.
---
Considering if we should be offering a dedicated macro column kit planet-style for XT-layout type boards, or make an additional planetary f-row R4, so it can be used by 60/65%, and it won't be as awkward for it to also be utilised as a macro column sculpt-wise.
---
Any interest in a simple media kit? Play pause, vol up/down, mute etc.
---
Currently have been waiting for prototypes of initial novelty drafts from the Manu to show proof of reverse multi-dyesub quality for legends

The real star here to me are the non standard mods and the bright colors. The colors are really great together but I just cant help but feel this should have been a deskmat GB first. They are sick and I dont have worries about them like I do the novelty kit. Excited to see how this progresses. For now its Digioro.

Thanks for the love. We have been making some updates, but it's been slow process with other commitments and learning more about kitting for obscurer layouts.
Hopefully with holidays coming up soon, we can accelerate the refinement and be happy with kitting and novelties.
This set looks awesome! Love the planets!

Good points. Media kit will be last on consideration of additions, as we're still cleaning up our kitting and ensuring we have a reasonable number of SKUs. KAT Eternal is shipping, so production is showing some signs of life.

Galileo looking great. Would love some Wyvern or Southpaw Extended 65 renders.
I don't own those board files for rendering purposes, but I might be able to get a render on the hex6.c. I'll talk to pseudo about getting Galileo numpad rendered on that southpaw board.

omg i love this. more cats!!
<3. One of artisan collabs we're lining up will add another cat to the set.

Liking the colorful blank cluster on the 65% render but don't see it in the kits. Would love to have that in the kits, with legends preferred but blank is cool too.
Hi, we're rearranging our kitting still. The colorful blank cluster is going to be in a kit with gradient spacebars for those who like that accent. Legends might be difficult given the variety of text, icon and alien legends, and variety of placements of pg up an pg dn.

Hi, I appreciate the feedback. We're revamping kitting, and have gotten rid of the mod kits given lack of popularity, and to simplify things. Alien language mods will likely stay as we do have some who really love them. In regards to the novelty kit concerns, we've been in talks with the manufacturer on getting some prototypes of them done to show proof of concept. See KAM 80s After Dark IC for a photo of the novelty spacebar prototype, to show that reverse dye sub can look fantastic.

Should do a second round one day.. in SA.. with a more mature theme... Laser guns and war ships or something, instead of....cute kitties in space suits..
Call it: SA Space ASHES.
Not a bad idea. I think SA would look slick. I like lasers and war ships. For now we're going uwu

Can we get a render of the mono alpha kit with the mods? I'm curious how they would look together since a mono mod kit doesn't appear to be available.
Hi, sorry to let you know that our IC kitting isn't exactly up to date, as we're probably ditching mono legend kits due to lack of popularity compared to the gradient concept.

Super excited about space cats!
If a cat meows in space, can you hear it?

The updates look sweet. I feel like I've been following this set for a while now. I'm kind of curious if these complex novelties can actually be created and look good. Going to be such a great set if it does work out well.

Looking forward to GB next year. Hopefully Keyreative can catch up with production a bit.

Somehow I stumbled upon this IC all the way from Moomin, or maybe it was Be the One? Anyhow - really nice kit. I'm thinking this will be my first GB. From the colours it looks like it will fit in perfectly with the Mekanisk Klippe T Ultramarine build I'm considering. A shame getting the end result of a GB takes so long. 🙁

Good luck, and looking forward to the buy!

Gorgeous set! I wish the ergo kit was the pink/blue-on-black modifiers instead of the pink-on-indigo, though. The split colors would look so good!

omg yeah, I also love it as is :D reminds me of cats on synths in space, the synths part is visually missing but the color palette is so vaporwave that it makes up for that  ;D

  Does page 1 still reflect the current state of this set? (plus galileo numpad)  There are so many options and have been so many changes mentioned I've lost track.

Hi, thanks for compliments! Black modifiers ended up polling really well, so we're aiming to have black modifier variants where we can.
So we will be making sure we have black modifiers Ergo kit. We will look to our SKU limit if it can also add a Black CMD kit for mac users if possible, but CMD kit is lower on the priority versus other kits we want black modifier variants for.

can you shoot out a rough estimation of when the gb will start? like soon, soon™ or later?

It's not 100%, but after discussions with relevant vendors, we're likely aiming for April 2020; so expect a ramp up our updates over the next month, as we approach the beginning of Q2.

No unfortunately our kits are not yet up to date on the front page (there's still a list of errors we're correcting). Sorry, we'll try and get to that soon. There's a lot of changes that are planned. We're in the middle of a big  kitting revamp, as we're trying to make black modifier variants for kits that only has blue modifiers currently.  That's why we had to cull all our 60% only mods to make way for that. That's also why we're culling our non-gradient kits (so don't expect any of the non-gradient numpad or f-row kits).
In regards to galileo numpad, we're going to be merging the planetary novelties, with the Alien gradient numpad (Asimov). Partly because we don't have enough novelties to completely fill out the whole numpad. We need symbols for Num lock, divide, times and minus, so we're thinking of using alien text, or custom icon symbols. They both also fulfill a similar niche.
Also re: numpad, expect the gradient colours to be flipped around, so it'll flow better on a 100% layout, left to right. Also since we're changing from R5-R4 top rows to R4-R4, we will be able to slim down the amount of duplicate nav keys we have in our kits.

We still have yet to add the accent gradient stand-alone kit, and novelties will come in either black modifier or blue modifier variants.
Iso-specific enter and left shift keys will be likely baked into their respective modifier kit, as it's currently a bit too messy keeping them separate/stand-alone.
We are also looking to make the Extra Gradient add-ons (Rainbow Barf) - “Spæther” alpha kits stand-alone alphas instead of add-ons.

Anyways, sorry for the lack of updates. Pseudo and I will be ramping up some more frequent updates over the next month to get this IC up to scratch.

I absolutely adore the theme. Any chance on standard text modifiers, meaning not space terms or alien language? As much as I love the concept, I guarantee I would forget what some of them are, and the ones that are only icons have some that are kind of abstract relating to their function.

Thanks! I'm building a language collection of sets myself too hah. Seeing Phoenician alphas for KAT Iron and Greek Alphas for KAT Atlantis definitely helped push us to offer something a bit different.

Hi, given the large number of modifier kits (icons, space terms, and alien; which will be offered in both black and dark blue variant), we're unlikely to be able to offer standard text modifiers, as we have cap of the total number of kits we're going to offer (~30 max).

We're going to try! It may end up being Colemak (+ Mod-DH); the gradient makes also accommodating for Dvorak, Norman and Workman layout difficulty.

Fingers crossed, April 2021 if things run on schedule (kitting quotes and samples)

In the mean-time, I've been working with the talented designer Oli (upcoming IC - SA Geoma) on revamping the icon mods:

*WIP
So feast your eyes on some new shiny renders by Pseudoalpaca:


Board: Rama Koyu (Ramaworks)

- Oblivion Deskmat featuring Nemui (by Bachoo) - render by me

Also hinted in previous renders (and known for a long-time on the discord server), a deskmat I've designed called "Oblivion" will also feature alongside "Moonwalk" and "Parallel Universes". We're currently trying to rework the pattern deskmat "Parallel Universes" to something a bit less chaotic.

- Planetary numpad kit featuring on N9Ne Macropad (by Riftworks) - render by Pseudoalpaca


Note that the digits in the "Alien" numpad kit will instead use the planetary novelties.
Similarly, we'll also be offering those planet novelties as a F-row kit (R4), which will also include extra keys to make sure the gradient pattern  can also be used in place of the num-row on 60/65% layouts too [a concept taken from KAT Great Wave kitting]

We would like some opinions on some of the modifier colours (Black vs Blue) and legend options (Icon, Alien text, Space terms) we have.
In particularly, those who use F-row key layouts (we have too many options), and the ortho, 40s, and ergo. The more exotic layouts aren't popular enough to warrant offering multiple colour and legend options unfortuntely, so we'll go by popular votes.
Kindly drop by the discord server Unknown Ceys #polls to let us know your preferences (we don't mind if its just a temporary visit and you leave):

i.e. currently:


space dolphin and black hole deskmat pog. also probably shouldn't credit keycap designer discord anymore
Thanks! Space Dolphin is a subtle nod to the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Also considering adding 'Don't Panic' red accent novelty enter key too.
Was thinking of giving it a cute name too like Belle Dolphine or Dolph lundgren  :D like Zeta Pup and Kat

Cheers for the heads up, and we'll edit the credits. IC was created a while ago, and at the time it was easier to just credit the whole server, then particular individuals (although many have helped).
[Also a tangent: I'm totally biased, but I personally dislike the elitist attitude that some ppl have against keycap sets that have used resources/feedback from that discord server.  That server isn't to blame for low-effort ICs that occasionally get posted here (the server tries its best to warn against this, but enthusiastic newbies will disregard advice). Low-effort and less well-received ideas will naturally be weeded out anyways, so I don't get the point of gatekeeping. Anyways a shoutout(plug)  to current running GBs from there too such as kam superuser, gmk maestro, gmk iceberg, gmk civilisations, and ePBT Soju.]
