[IC] SA Simplicity - Update 12/28 - Add new mods & render
« on: Wed, 11 November 2020, 12:00:50 »

The Inspiration


SA Black mod on pimpmykeyboard. This set was dirt cheap and looks good with any alphas

The basic idea of this set is providing various mods, alpha and accent kits for mixing with your existing "main stream" keysets. Like you have jukebox alpha already , why don't try to mix it with black mod and red accent kits ?
The keyset was designed to provide mixing materials in some popular colorways. Let's play the SA mixing game

Kit Breakdown


Accent Kit

Update 12/28 - Correct row on Accent kit


Mod Kits

Update 12/28 - Red mod kit






Alpha Kits




Renders

Update 12/28 - Red mod kit render









Pricing

TBD

Vendors

SEA Vendor: Mechkey.store

CA Vendor: Alphakeys.ca

US Vendor: cbkbd.com

Deskpad

Samurai deskpad


Artisan  Collabs
TBD


TODO

1. Finalize kitting
2. Finalize vendors
3. Finalize artisan collabs
3. Finalize Pricing

Nice idea - I've often wondered why PMK don't do this type of thing.

Thanks for your suggestion, we definitely interested in creating a spacebar kit. Will add that in the next revision.

The black mod they sell was so hot that people still asking for months after it sold out. They did absolutely zero marketing for it and the first time i saw it in stock, i bought for like 30+ kits for our guys in local community. It created so many good combination with other alpha and grab bag keys.

Into this 100%. Are all kits doubleshot?

I noticed R2 Page Up and R3 Page Down seem to be missing from the mod kits?

Also is there any capability of F13 from signature plastics?

yes, they're all 2shots. For R2 pgUp and R3 PgDown we want to keep the mod as simplest as possible due to the nature of multiple mods of the keyset. We might need to use the Home R2 and End R3 instead.

Thank you. Adding iso support is one of our TODO note. Also we are planning to replace the least vote mod with Red mod - RAS. Let's see how it turn out.

Will you consider an ortho mod kit? If price is reasonable, I can help buy it to MOQ. I'd also be willing to help with kitting if needed.

Any possibility for 40% keys in the modifier kit? Like 1.25U and 1U Shift keys, maybe something relevant in terms of legends for third row.

Some of the the response pointed out that we got it wrong in the accent kit. The rows were in correct. We'll have it updated in the next revision.

Thank you, your suggestion was so good. I'll add a section into the interest check form for ortho. Let's see how that turn out.

OMG thank you for doing this, I have finally been able to achieve a monochrome SP SA set after years of searching and buying using a mixture of Blood Shadow mods, R5 Alphas and some missing randoms. I will be getting this for ease and simplicity so I can free up the other sets for boards! How this hasnít existed before always baffled me.

Why not run the bottom row in r4 instead of r3? This would allow for greater flexibility with the 'limited' keys. For example: your render on the viendi wouldn't be possible with current kitting since the arrow cluster is all on the same row (r3) - per kitting 'up' arrow is r4.

Stoked though. As with another poster, been wanting a monochrome SA set, and have recently bought KAT mono since nothing else existed without mixing and matching. Pretty excited.

Hello friend, the accent kit has wrong row number, the bottom row should be in R3 instead of r4.

Also some general update : we're revising the kits abit to include new red color and change some layout. Also we want to add an ISO kit similar to accent kits to support EU users. Update kits and renders will be available soon.

OMG I am late again ;)  AIs it too late to ask for option to include R3: "HYPER" and "META"? This would be very much appreciated by many hacking/coding/programming people. "HYPER" keycap is very rare to get, but it can be programmed (for example using QMK) as an extra modifier in GNU Emacs and it also sounds and looks very cool ;)  And "META" is the "real" name for "ALT" in some worlds :)
