Keycap Set Color Scheme Archive
« on: Wed, 09 October 2013, 19:18:21 »
First and foremost, shoutouts to Krogenar and this discussion for jumpstarting this thread. I also took Krogenar's thread title.

This thread will contain information on keycap sets, their color schemes, and related information such as profile.

WARNING: THIS THREAD HAS A LOT OF PICTURES AND MAY LOAD SLOWLY. :P



If you would like to help, please post information in this format (borrowed from Krogenar). ANYONE CAN HELP, SO PLEASE POST INFO. Thanks :D:

Krogenar's work in progress can be found here.


We want to be as color accurate as possible guys so check out Krogenar's SP ABS Color Ring Scans as well as Dianoda's minus page which has an Xrite Color Bloc and the SP color samples. The Wikimedia commons has a color accurate X-Rite Color checker.

Other Notes: Samwisekoi: "It is with some considerable sadness that we have decided we must cancel this Group Buy. Among other things, surprise multi-thousand-dollar

charges have popped up, and we can't sustain it. If anyone really, really wants Sindarin/Elvish keycaps, we would be happy to send a copy of the layout file over to WASD

Keyboards.  They have indicated to me that they can laser etch sets onto their customizable ABS keycaps." This proposed set is notable for not containing ANY alphanumeric

characters at all.

Other Notes: Sherryton: "This was a special order made by the owner of iomania, and I think he also owns KBDMania.  Before moldings by Signature Plastic were very cheap.

It was somewhere around $15-35. I think the guy paid around $25 / legend." Round 2 later made reversed colors available. Seems that a GB was run by Tsangan, then a second round

was started by GupGup and then picked up by tjcaustin. For second round of this color scheme, individual kits were referred to as CCoG (Cream Cheese on Green) or GoCC

(Green on Cream Cheese).

Other Notes: This color scheme is being offered in both DCS and DSA profiles. BunnyLake: "1. The usage of tooling for stepped key was allowed by OTD. 2. The OTD's policy is not to make any profit with the group buy. So please do not participate in the group buy for the purpose of selling at higher price." From web store: "A prefix often used in scientific and technical words, to denote something above or beyond the usual, normal, expected, or healthy level. Sometimes used to mean extreme or specifically "more than super-". Extended tsangan kit includes mods with "Hyper" and "Fuse". Also the GB offered color-coordinated (blue) USB cable.

Other Notes: The first GB to be make using the Cherry Replica legends. Toxic Set is another set that was postponed until these legends became available. Originally there were going to be 'webbed' orange polycarb, but because each keys varied a bit too much, it didn't look good as a complete set, and this idea was abandoned in favor of a solid white base and a distinct orange polycarb legend. Also, the GeekHack Nostalgia set also uses the Cherry Replica Legends.

Handerbeit!
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

You guys mean "Handarbeit" which is German - it means handwork. I don't know much about it, but here's a picture I've found.

Inline would be better. Include multiple photographs/renders behind the spoiler tags, but pick one that is 'representative' of the scheme -- something full-on, top-down photo -- that stays outside a spoiler tag. The one I selected for DSA Retro wouldn't fit that description. I'll find another.

Updated my post for Retro DSA.

Found nice photo of Commodore64 photo (inspiration for Retro DSA), and posted techkeys image of the set.

Nested spoiler tags, so that all that is initially seen is the name, and the representative image, and then a spoiler to get more detailed information, and then within that spoiler, more images?

I like Krog's style.

This way when browsing it is easy to look through the various color schemes, and then you can se the details for the one you like, and further ee more images if on wishes.

I think an inline image would look cleaner. Thoughts? And do we want the pictures hidden behind a spoiler tag?

Nested spoiler tags, so that all that is initially seen is the name, and the representative image, and then a spoiler to get more detailed information, and then within that spoiler, more images?

OTHER NOTES: Inspired by color scheme of the Commodore64 keyboard. Multiple kits including Nostalgia (grey), ISO and reverse colors were available. Matt3o: "We are grateful to the otd.kr community that allowed us to use their DSA 1.75 stepped key tooling for this group buy. Thanks guys, you rock!" During production it was discovered that modifiers over 2 units were slightly too large, and interfered with nearby keys -- GB organizers had replacements made and sent out almost as soon as it was discovered. Notable for use of Matt3o's GB software for kit selection, and relative speed of the groupbuy.[/size]

I like that. I'm going to incorporate an inline real smaller image as the base image though.

Don't forget, when it comes to "Red Alert" there are about 3 different sets that can fall under that heading.

First, the original, Korean group buy set, AKA Rebel Red Alert. These had symbol-only modifiers, and several expansion kits. There was a contrasting white-on-red number row done up in SP's Isotherm font legends. And red-on-beige modifiers, etc.

Second, Ragnorock's Red Alert 2.0 group buy set.

And most recently, tjcaustin's Klaxon group buy. Included the option for white-on-red alphas.

Maybe make them into AKAs for the original? They're all basically the same color scheme, though, right? White on Red.

Would it make sense to start with only custom-created sets first?  In other words, sets that aren't made for keyboard or typewriter manufacturers?  So like group buy sets on GH and DT as well as some sets on techkeys and Originative and such.  Otherwise, you might get overwhelmed with the huge number of different keycaps that come with various keyboards.

So like Triumph Adler would not be among those sets, but could be added as a bonus for color reference, since it's a "classic" scheme.

Nope. Dump the info here and we have four people who can modify the OPs. This is more about the color schemes than the actual keycap info in my opinion. We can always go back and edit the keycap details but I envision this to primarily be a color reference...with lots of additional detail.

I don't want to set too many rules, I just want people to contribute so I think the lack of goals can help that. If that's not the case, we can change how we're running the thread. But for now, let's see what happens.

Here's the hit list as I can see it, with some notes on how we might define a "scheme" -- all this input from everyone is awesome. It feels like we plopping down a huge piece of clay on a wheel and shaping it up as we go.

======
HIT LIST
======

Red Alert / Klaxon
Toxic
Miami
Cream Cheese on Green
Lily
Coffee
Bumblebee
Graphite
Dolch (multiple variants?)
Yolch
Orangesicle
Sindarin
Valentine
White Valentine
Hyper Fuse
Sanctuary
Calm Depths
23 Commando
Turtle Power
Skidata
Olivetti
====================================

I think what we're doing is working -- pick a CS and start filling in the blanks. Even if all we do is get the name and a decent picture, and a thread that focuses or mentions it, that's a great start.

From Photoelectric - thanks so much!
Quote
Korean CCNG
If it's the same colors as GH's CCnG, then I would include it as a variant, or just as a footnote that it was done by others. Make sense?
Quote
Blue-green with Gray SP DS ABS set
Sounds like a unique color scheme, so it should get it's own entry -- but what to call it?

Quote
Round 3 from DT (multiple sets)
Round 4 from DT (multiple sets)
Earlier rounds?
Grrr, badly named! But I guess that's the name, right? If they're all the same color scheme, same entry.

Quote
Dye-Sub thick PBT "IMSTO" sets by IvanIvanovich: round 1 and round 2 - various colors, mostly on white + beige/gray
Vortex dye sub thick PBT sets sold by Feng in a group buy (lavender, light blue, white, "WYSE", gray, and rainbow) <-- I guess this one might not really count, as the creators are somewhat ambiguous (some people dyed those sets in China)
If it's a unique arrangement of color, then I would give them their own entry, but they would require a good name -- maybe figure out what they most closely resemble?

Quote
Original Cherry double-shot set sold by Originative (white + beige + black font)
Orange + Charcoal (Originative SkiData imitation)
Aren't the Originative sets meant to resemble classic Cherry color schemes? What would we call this scheme? Classic Cherry 'Color-on-Color'? SkiData would definitely qualify as a uniqueCS.

Quote
DSA Dolch (group buy by team RedLine)
If only the profile is changed, I would assume it goes under the original CS entry.

Quote
Purple with white GMK modifier set (IvanIvanovich's GB)
CMYK GMK modifier set (IvanIvanovich's GB)
Esc GMK pack (IvanIvanovich's GB)
Gray + Black + White doubleshot GMK set (IvanIvanovich's GB)
Do we want to consider modifiers alone as being a CS? I don't think they would qualify? What do you guys think? A CS (in my mind) is a complete keyboard color scheme (legend colors as well), including alphas and mods, but not including the case color, or the keycap profile. But what about legends? Let's say I do Turtle Power, but change no colors, except changing the legends to Comic Sans -- does it qualify as a new CS? I would say it would not. It's just a variant of Turtle Power.

Red Alert is the original White on Red color scheme. Rebel Red Alert is the second round. I think Klaxon and Klaxon 2.0 are rounds 3 and 4.

Ragnarock isn't the same color scheme or buy, that should be split up from Red Alert.

Round 3 and Round 4 are Dolch replica Round 3 and Round 4 with extras. I think there's different color schemes available in them. Round 3 had orange for example.

For things like Dolch GMK and Dolch DSA, I'd like input on how people would like to see it. We can separate the OP by company or just put in two profiles.

And yes, I think modifiers are color schemes. But I'd like to focus on full sets first. CMYK and RGB can come later.

Also CS = Color Scheme. Took me a second to figure that out. If we're going to use new acronyms, please define them.This thread will have too many of them as it is.

I will update the hit list once we define some things such as the IMSTO Buys and what we want to do with a modifier set. We being the community here.

Red Alert is the original White on Red color scheme. Rebel Red Alert is the second round. I think Klaxon and Klaxon 2.0 are rounds 3 and 4.

Ragnarock isn't the same color scheme or buy, that should be split up from Red Alert.

WTF are you on about? I think you ate some crack for breakfast or something. :P

The original "O.G." Red Alert set, AKA Rebel Red Alert, was a Korean GB set. If you bought everything, it's like 220 keycaps or something like that. Red-on-white full set, red-on grey mod set, contrasting white-on-red number row.

Red Alert 2.0 was a GH GB, organized by Ragnorock. Made some of the GH elders mad, who started calling it "fake alert." Had the option of white-on-red modifiers.

Klaxon GB (RA 2.0 copy) was of course run by tjcaustin, and the new thing about it was the inclusion of a white-on-red alphanum option. There is no Klaxon 2.0 yet.

HTH, :D

Round 3 and Round 4 are Dolch replica Round 3 and Round 4 with extras. I think there's different color schemes available in them. Round 3 had orange for example.
Round 4 had 4 distinct color schemes. Info
  • Spherical-Style - A space cadet inspired set.
  • Round3-Style - Dolch color set with some orange keys.
  • Retro-Style - A soware inpired set with tweaked colors
  • Noir-Style - I belive this was just unique because of the many symbol legends
For things like Dolch GMK and Dolch DSA, I'd like input on how people would like to see it. We can separate the OP by company or just put in two profiles.

It seems like if the colors didn't are exactly the same as the original we should just include a note that a replicate set was made and maybe some info like date and differences from original.

And yes, I think modifiers are color schemes. But I'd like to focus on full sets first. CMYK and RGB can come later.

This makes sense.

Oh boy there are too many cherry sets to go by... but ill do my best to help.

CPT, in the OP, you have 'Triumph-Adler' for one set, keep in mind there are 3 known schemes that TA goes by, so that could get very confusing

The Originative Sets should be different from the original sets, as they are not replicas but slightly different versions of the original sets, just something to keep in mind

there should be a thread on just Cherry sets..or just on sets in general

With different color schemes? I don't think so.

Do you have any information on the other sets?

There should be a thread on just Cherry sets..or just on sets in general

You're welcome to start one. I don't know that much about Cherry so I'm the wrong person to head that up.
