[IC] ePBT RamenStop | Finalizing Kits
« on: Sun, 13 September 2020, 02:21:05 »


enjoyPBT RamenStop is a set inspired by small Japanese ramen shops. This set features plenty of cute iconic ramen shop novelties to fulfill your hunger for cute novelties.

Vendors/Proxies
United States: Kono
Canada: AuraMech
Europe: Candykeys
Asia: Zfrontier
Oceania: DailyClack

GB Date : TBD
 

Week 2 update:
   Thank you for everyone who gave feedback in the first's weekly update of RamenStop and following that I've made some changes accordingly.
Colors: It was evident from the first week's responses that you guys did not like the charcoal/forest green texts and mods so we will be reverting to the original green color. However, there's been a debate on which accent color belongs in the base kit, in solution to that I've made a color addon kit (Toppings kit) you can purchase separately. The base kit will come with no accent keys.
New novelties: New green colored novelties added to go with the Seaweed Addon kit.

If you have feedback or concerns join the PlopMK discord for more updates and info

Colors
Green (Chives)                    PANTONE 7715 C
Cool White (Narutomaki)      PANTONE 656 C
Yellow (Eggyolk)                  PANTONE 106 C
Pink (Kamaboko)                 PANTONE 2039 C


so I better not see comparisons in the comments -_-

No ISO-UK?  :(

Your sublegends seem to be a bit off and I personally would be considering this for a JIS layout. See graphic below:

All that being said this is a very nice and clean set! GL w/IC.

Like what you're going for, although I wish there were at least text + icon mods (ideally text mods).

Very helpful info, this is just an initial IC, hopefully by the end I'll be able to cover all types of boards.

Well, he's using katakana not hiragana. But I am realizing now that he's using an odd mix of the two...

Edit: I was looking at Mecha-01 for reference, but it appears Biip did the same thing that is being done here for Bushido?

cute colors, but honestly I've never seen a small shop that uses take away boxes or sells boba. otherwise, the icons are really well designed, would love to see other toppings used as novelties!

edit: actually, I just realized, are those chopsticks sticking up and out of the bowl and take away box? that's a decently large cultural faux pas, as bowls are presented that way at funerals to offer to the dead.

Looking great, reminds me of some other ebpt sets I really enjoyed but even better, and I see you already addressed that.

Definitely would be interested in buying at least the base + both novelty kits, count me in :thumb:

Hi there. The layout of the katakana sublegends that you have chosen for this set is based on an outdated Apple layout that was used only on some vintage Apple keyboards. Please consider changing the set to use the standard ANSI-JP layout.

Cool white vs off-white
Dark green vs teal
Extensive accents vs no accents
Extensive novelties vs one novelty
Split numpad and 40s support vs one kit
Icon mods vs icon + text mods
Has a theme vs NULL
...
They both have magenta moon runes, what a rip-off!

Be honest, have you ever been to a real ramen shop? :p

The drinks with straws novelties need to go. Color choice is also interesting? Prominent color pallet with ramen shops are red, yellow, orange, white and black.
