Easy cop. The set just keeps getting better with every update. Absolutely stunning set.
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!
Spaaaacee!!

looks sick, will buy instantly
Cheers

The norde-kit made this a must-have for me.
<3

That numpad is excellent.
Gonna look good on my Treasure Type 9
Ah that combo would look so slick. Damn, maybe I should've got that macropad.

Great set! Love the colored blanks & gradient space bar, would never ever use the caps with the childish cartoon illustrations - please don't bundle these in the same kit.
Ah I respect you have your own aesthetic preference, and you will be glad to hear we will be separating coloured gradient blanks and space bar in its own kit!

i want (aka need) every novelty in this kit omfg
<3

Media kit, yes, would buy. But also not essential. There are so many kits here already I worry about fulfilmemt challenges when none of the far more simple KAT kits I've ordered have shown any signs of progress well past their estimated delivery dates
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.

I kinda love it I kinda hate it. I will also fill out the IC but as always with KAT I think the kitting is way overdone. I would say get rid of the mono kits. Get rid of the alien language mods. 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.
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?

nice set
Thanks for the nice comment. Have a great day yourself!

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!

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]
