I don't know if there is still time for this, but can we get ESC key(s) size of a Capslock (1.75u)? This is a terminal set after all and It's quite common that people using vim/emacs map their capslock to ESC. I've been doing it for last couple years and especially on 65% keyboard. The only other 1.75u keys are 'control' from mods and 'kill' and 'mount' from novelties. I'll take the set anyway, just having nice green 1.75u ESC would be better.

Re: [IC] KAM_Superuser | 19/09 - Huge kitting update!

This set is very nice! If I may provide a suggestion and it's not too late to make changes, I would very much like to see a 1.75u escape keycap to put instead of the capslock. This is considering you already have provided keycaps for vim-like hjkl controls, so being able to have a matching cap for an escape remap would be absolutely amazing!


While I do not use the caps lock key - instead, I use the control key - I do not see people who need it very happy to have it replaced by an ESC cap; that is, the first time I heard should replace the caps lock.


I wouldn't want to get rid of the caps lock keycap from the set, I just wanted to see the addition of a similar 1.75u escape. From what I've see , remapping the caps lock key to escape seems like a fairly common practice for users of a unix-based OS. For myself, I find capslock hardly ever used.


By fairly common, you mean 1 in how many? If my own anecdotal experience of some years at GH and 7k post is worth something, you are the first to mention it.

That depends on demographic of people you talk to. In dev community, pretty much everyone who uses vim/emacs extensively has remapped Capslock to ESC. You just can't use vim and default ESC without causing strain over the time ;D It's just way too far away.

But as I see that this has already been suggested in October (sorry, only now I went through most of the thread), I have very small hopes that this would include green 1.75 ESC. Control it is then.

Agree, it's hard for non-vim users to imagine the amount of Esc usage, I wouldn't hesitate to say it's common at least within the specific demographic

And TYPE YOUR CAPS HOLDING DOWN SHIFT LIKE A MAN!

Quotes came through today! Shouldn't be too much longer before I can provide an update on that :) It is very much in line with other KAT/KAM sets though.

Beautiful keycaps! but my model is Ducky one 2 with 108 keys, I can't find the additional keycaps for functions, i.e., volume+-/.
I look forward to your announcement of the price, I have set a date to remind me to pre-order. :-X

Just added ;)

I've worked together with RAMA, sending in my KAM samples to help them create the very first KAM profile RAMA cap! This new profile will be available to other designers wanting to work with RAMA in KAM going forward too.

The superuser RAMA cap will be matched to 7545 C (mods grey) and will have glow in the dark green enamel infill!

Oooooh very pretty ! Looks like it'll be my first RAMA cap :) just in case, I'm dropping this here : https://thok.click/product/kam-80s-afterdark/ thought that could also work very well with Superuser with a different color :)

I had the same idea. I linked that in the Superuser discord before I knew we were getting an artisan for this set as well. I'm getting both and will probably stick the 80's on the insert key for the GMMK Pro board I have coming.

In light of the recent update from Keyreative that's been circulating, should we expect the GB to be delayed?

From what I've been told, no, we will be going ahead as planned unless it's announced otherwise :) It could also be beneficial in that by the time production rolls around for superuser, Keyreative will be using their brand new dye-sub machinery and avoid any of the problems they've been having in the past.

How long does it take a GB's set to be manufactured? I have read about a year, but not sure if it was just a rummor.

It is currently around that time yeah. Keyreative have some new machinery that they're currently setting up and introducing double shot KAT to try and split the production queues so hopefully things will improve going forward, but they have some catching up to do at the moment.



40s_ortho kits have been given a minor adjustment! 1.5u spaces have been swapped for concave keys as it turns out these moulds are not available.

So happy about this set... great work!  I saw it in IC and was hoping you would take it to GB.  The only problem is that I want all the sets and choosing will be really tough.  Thanks again for putting this together... I am all in!
