[GB] ePBT Acadia | March Update
« on: Mon, 10 January 2022, 19:41:59 »
ePBT Acadia by VishyDesigns


ePBT Acadia

GB January 11 - February 11, 2022
Acadia is one of the most unique and beautiful National Parks in the United States. It is a connection between natures hidden treasures and mankind's achievements. When I began this project last year I had just returned from this incredible island off the coast of Maine, USA. The trip was one of the most inspirational experiences I have experienced in my, so far, short life. I wanted to take my love of the outdoors and natural beauty and share it with all the people in this community. Here is my first keyset, ePBT Acadia!

Special Thanks
There are so many helpful and kind people in this community that helped me to bring this idea to reality. I'd like to thank Summerqm for helping me with the novelty designs for this set, Moon for helping me with two of the deskmat designs, Dasorevie for helping me with the third deskmat design. Then I would like to thank Cylent, SpikedSynapse, NoPun, Nolsia, and many more.
Thank you!

Neat set, though I wished that Alpha kit was the base kit.

You should check with your vendors and manu to see if you can add R1 \|, R3 \|, R4 <> keys to the alt alphas kit after the fact. These keys are currently missing from the kit, but are required for covering various layouts. Without them, any layout that uses split backspace cannot be covered with the alt colorway, and neither can any ISO layouts. It's a shame that this wasn't caught during the IC phase, but it may still be fixable given EPBT's flexibility. (edit: actually, it looks like someone did catch this during the IC)

The set looks good otherwise. GLWGB!

Thanks for pointing out Konstantin! Must have missed it the first time it was brought up, I will get right on this!

Alright, you got me. I love that green/blue combo way too much. I've never been to Acadia (except in Fallout 4...) but I'd love to go someday!

SOOOO Happy with how sales turned out! All of you that supported and those who helped throughout this whole process I want to give the biggest possible thanks to you all! Ive almost completed the files to submit to epbt and we should get production started (queue is pretty backed up atm)

Second note: Everything will be made with the exception of the switches. Due to not enough support we have decided to cancel the MDI switches. Full refunds will be issued to those who purchased the switches. Im very sorry to all those that purchased the switches.

Third: Thank you so much to dvorcol for all the amazing graphs! Such a big help to this stage of the project

Hey all! Huge apology for the radio silence. Have been backed up with school stuff. Wanted to give a quick update. Nothing much has changed, I submitted files to epbt, and we are waiting for all vendor invoices to be paid, from there we can start producing samples! I will keep updated once I receive more information! Thank you all so much!

Hi all! just a quick update for you all! We have gotten almost all of the payments in for acadia, and I have submitted files for samples and production! We've joined the list for ePBT samples, so it may take a bit. Will try to keep you guys update as much as I can! As for other artisans, etc. payments for those are still being collected and sample production is beginning soon!

Hi all! I apologize for the delay with the May Update. I have been busy with school ending, finals, etc. Unfortunately, we are still on the long list for samples, and will likely be stuck there for a bit. However epbt is working hard to shorten the long list. I will continue to update as I can. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks!
