[IC] DCS HACKED
« on: Thu, 30 May 2024, 03:36:51 »
DCS HACKED

W1AT by Geonworks



Hello everyone, this is the IC for DCS Hacked. I was deeply inspired when I watched Persona 5 and saw the character futaba. I thought to myself, she is literally me, and I decided to base my entire life around this, since then I have watched Persona 5 once per week at minimum and have posters of Futaba up all over my wall. Truly Futaba is the best character in all of animation, possibly all of film as well.
/s


lol.

In all seriousness, the Inspiration is geekhack colours, in DCS. Which was chosen because DCS good and gorton legends good.

This uses stock colours and they are
Alphas  - GEW
Modifiers - NN
Legends -  OAV


KITTING
Sorry if the renders are not that great, still pretty new to this and will improve my rendering skills.

Base Kit


This base kit accomodates the standard layouts for a tkl base kit (happy with the wording now...), which includes standard ansi, tsangan, along with 60%, 65%, alice and 40s now (keep in mind that the alice spacebars will be concave and not convex). Also has iso and mx hhkb support for the cool people who use them. (6u spacebar is centred, sorry for not including that)

Numpad Kit


Here is a numpad kit to accommodate the cool people who use it, pretty simple kit here.

PRICING


Keep in mind that it will be a bit more due to vendor costs, and I won't be making any money off the set to decrease the cost of it as well

Expected Questions

Why is there a separate numpad kit instead of one big kit?
More
It's just far more economically viable to do a base and numpad for dcs. I like seeing complete sets as well but it only racks up cost for the base kit making it less appealing for everyone who wants in. Plus the prices at 25moq is hopefully fine for most people who want it. Another thing is that vendors who would want to pick up extras would prefer a cheaper manufacturing cost to order those extras.

Where is 40s, other spacebar types and other miscellaneous kitting?
More
There are questions related to an extension and spacebar kit in the IC form, would like to add them both but would just like to see if people are interested first

Alps Kit?
More
Probably not sadly because there isn't too much demand for dcs and even less for alps. Did put it in the IC just in case a lot of people would want it, which I do doubt. No Sadly, just not enough demand.

ENDING NOTES
Please fill out the IC (if you want to of course) and if you like the project, join the discord I created for updates and discussion, and maybe spread the word if you want to see this get made.

Special thanks
More
Carter for helping me out quite a bit, with his advice and providing the files that I wasn't good enough to make
Nostyle for helping me out with non render related questions and for being cool.
The people who helped me out with some of my question in the keycap render kit discord
Some of the members of Snzagkeys for giving me initial thoughts and also some good suggestions
Druah for being very funny (please come back with the milk)



Changes
Changed print to prt sc, 1u numpad 0 has the ins legend and del to delete.
Moved R1 End and PgDn to the numpad kit
Added both a 6u bar and 3 key 40s into base


Plans
Finalise Colours (have ordered a bunch of sp chips to compare with each other to see which one fits and is better)
Finalise Kitting.
Acquire some vendors for the project.
Maybe organize some artisan collabs.

please include new 6u bar if you are already including 2x 1.5u super and 2x 1u alt in base

also please add to base instead of addon:
2u bar
3-key 40s
front print on nav keys
change Print to PrtSc

optional (for addon):
windowed keys
relegendables or macro keys
10u bar
bae

R1 PgDn and R1 End can be moved from base to numpad kit since they're for 1800 layouts.

I assume the "shortbars" in base are 2.25u and 2.75u but it would be nice to label them and other larger keys because not everyone can eyeball keycap sizes.

Also the 1.25u Shift is missing the icon, probably just a rendering error.

GLWIC!

Yeah I moved them both to the numpad kit, yes they are 2.25 and 2.75u bars, put the labels there because it was kinda hard to see. And rerendered with the icon shift because that was a rendering mistake. Thanks for telling the suggestions and telling me about the mistake I made.

please include new 6u bar if you are already including 2x 1.5u super and 2x 1u alt in base

also please add to base instead of addon:
2u bar
3-key 40s
front print on nav keys
change Print to PrtSc

optional (for addon):
windowed keys
relegendables or macro keys
10u bar
bae

Will probably be adding front print to the nav keys that have it. About the other changes to kitting, I'll see how much people want the extension and the spacebar kits in the ic but especially adding 2.00u and 6.00u in base I am very much considering that in base. Will also get quotes with all the addon changes you've said to just see how much more expensive it is. Thanks for the suggestions as well.

Will keep an eye on this -- feedback looks good so far as far as basic kitting is concerned.

Would definitely consider the 6u in base as you are already including the 1.5u Supers.

If you're really looking to reduce caps while maximizing compat, I'd say the 1.5u Super and 2nd 1u Alt should be cut from base. This is coming from a 6u HHKB user, I just don't find them to be necessary when everything else is the base kit is meant to provide maximum compatibility with the fewest keys possible.

Yeah fair considering that's also based on geekhack colours, thanks for the kind words both of you.

(Also I made this post last night and that /s on the troll copypasta is not noticeable lol, probably best to change that.)

Small Update - 31/04/24

Changed the kitting a bit, added the 6u bar and 3 key 40s into the base kit. I also added a geekhack novelty key as well (figured out how to do custom legends, spoilers I could do them fine but I was being dumb and didn't export them properly) Will get new quotes on the updated kitting for more accuracy.

An extension kit is also planned as well, even though it's pretty early a lot of people are interested in one. Will get to work on planning and rendering that. The spacebar kit is quite even on the ic about interest in it so I'll wait til more people answer the IC in order to gauge whether it will be worth, especially since they are convex spacebars. There won't be alps kit, put that Idea out there and there wasn't even close to enough interest (which is fair enough)

yeah, I changed it, I originally wanted the font to be consistent with the 1.5u backspace because I thought it was shorter, but yeah it matches up with the regular backspace better.

Hello again. Thanks for all the thoughtful feedback and kind words on the IC, really appreciate it. Just gonna lay out what I've been doing for the last bit and the changes planned.

Kitting changes - I will be adding both 00 and 1u = to the numpad kit, that should be pretty much everything that would be needed to that kit, and stepped control will be added to the extension kit, forgot about that admittedly but understand why people would want it.

I have been updating the extension kit as well in this time, which was updated in the IC and I will planning on rendering it soon. Still waiting for quotes from when I said for the extension and also the updated kitting, minus the 00 and 1u = (my fault there apologies for that)

Speaking of renders, I have been experimenting with a different rendering system? (I think that's a better term), I've put a test version here to just show what it looks like (need to do the custom gh novelty and also try and improve the lighting) but these renders have less weird legends then the system I've been using and I think they will be promising. Will put up the base and numpad kits soon and extension will be put up when I sort of all that out since there is quite a bit more to that kit with stuff like bae and stepped alts and ctrls. Thanks to pontus for showing me this and helping me out, appriciate it a lot considering how new I am to rendering.
More

As for the spacebar kit, I'll wait til my colour chips come here to confirm if there is. I have a set of gmk abs colour samples so if one of the colours matches up it might be best to just not include the spacebar kit (especially if it matches are close to something like 2b as sets like dualshot r2 have spacebar kits or at least the addon kit in stock on omnitypes website has them), it's almost even on interest in the IC again and I just want to see if there are other viable options, only because sp spacebars are concave instead of convex. Will keep everything updated when I decide on options.

One more thing. I have been thinking about buying some of the moq, I don't have too much spare income but even buying 10 or so sets will really help aid towards the moq, still will be tough considering how harsh it is for dcs sets so hopefully it can be reached.

if you haven't filled out the IC please consider doing that and if you want to join Rhiencord as I have called it for updates to this project when they come (and others when I decide to work on them, for now just doing dcs hacked but have some ideas I would like to do down the road)

Thanks again for all the support and interest in my project :)

You say in the OP "Why is there a separate numpad kit instead of one big kit? It's just far more economically viable to do a base and numpad for dcs."

Averaging US kit prices from 14 previous DCS GBs (7 Full Base, 7 TKL Base + Numpad) yields:
   $124 Full Base
   $121 TKL Base = $3 less than Full Base
   $30 Numpad
   $151 TKL + Numpad = $27 more than Full Base

Numpad orders were between 22% and 40% of TKL base orders.

What makes you say a Full base for DCS isn't economically viable?


EDIT: removed DCS Soware Revival because it didn't have Numpad at all

Averaging US kit prices from 15 previous DCS GBs (8 Full Base, 7 TKL Base + Numpad) yields:
   $123 Full Base
   $121 TKL Base = $2 less than Full Base
   $30 Numpad
   $151 TKL + Numpad = $28 more than Full Base

Numpad orders were between 22% and 40% of TKL base orders.

Show Image


It was more in terms of demand vs pricing, dcs is mainly bought by enthusiasts imo as in the general population of keyboard enjoyers don't really buy dcs, which means that for numpad support demand is a lot lower, it's better to split them off in order to keep the costs down for the base, while still offering the numpad for the people who want it.

One of the big factors as well is that prices have gone up since 2022 to the point where it would be a substantial increase to the base kit (I talked about this in my discord as well)

Thanks for responding. I will continue to look into it in order to make it more viable for people, as I do want to run this set.

Gateron Yellows - Lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | Probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. Probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.

Signature plastics is still in operation and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, it's just that the business is currently up for sale.

Cherry Blacks - Unlubed - Filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - Alu Plate | Pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.

They're open, and soliciting new designs for runs later this year. (Source: me, who has one in manufacturing for an in-stock sale this fall). Last update sounded like there was an interested buyer, who intended to keep everything going, and invest in modernization.

DCS windowed keys are the best led keys - said me and maybe 3 other people. I'll buy this though.

As far as the quality goes it is excellent IME. However as far as how someone will like DCS caps, that is gonna come down way more to personal preference than anything else. They are pretty thin compared to any other high end keycaps which gives a fairly different sound & feel to say GMK or KKB caps. As much as I love me some DCS I would honestly say see if you can find a way to try some out before you buy a set.
