Maybe you can joing "forces" (hehe) with Matt3o and his X-Wing inspired set: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=52512.0

Or have shared novelties and make one set an "extension" of the other? Or keep them separate if the colourways can't match up, I'm sure true diehard Star Wars fans wouldn't mind having more keycap options.

<just had to add that I prefer the colourway on this set to X-Wing, so if they do merge, I'd like this to become the "base">

I tried out other ships, but the issue I was having was that they were hard to make out what it was.  Here was a Snowspeeder I had:



The X-Wing seemed to work out the best because of the shape.  The other thing is, I'm not sure if I could even get them printed.

BTW, if you want to match the red, yellow and/or grey to what they used on the helmets and props in the movies, you need to look no further than Humbrol enamel paints - because those are what they used. The range was limited back in the 1970's, so look at the lowest paint numbers first.

These are the keycaps you are looking for.

I'd really like too, I know it would probably be pointless to try and contact Disney but I may try for the hell of it.


Also, while I'm here, how about some Aurebesh alphas?


Would probably be insanely expensive but always an option.  Maybe some Aurebesh novelties would be better.

Just a quick test:


I have no idea where to begin with this type of stuff.  This was done with a java app written by someone from /r/keycapdesigners.  Saying that, it's not 100% accurate to my set but it gives a decent idea of what it'd look like.

Another version of the Aurebesh alphas as well:


Would these be possible with dyesub even if the rest of the set is doubleshot?

Yes, if you use DSA or DCS you could make dyesub alphas with the rest doubleshot, but the dyesubbed caps would be PBT and the rest ABS. If you go for dark legends everywhere you could dyesub the whole set. Leaves more options for legends / characters, but limits you to DCS, DSA and Cherry profiles. Also, for DCS and DSA you have to use the PBT colours from SP: http://deskthority.net/wiki/Signature_Plastics_PBT_colours

I think Gateron can mix up custom PBT colours, but they seem to be slow with this sort of thing, I think this is what Ivan did for the Black on Black PBT GB. If you go this route, you also have to get them dyesubbed by a third party (like IMSTO), whereas SP can do everything in-house.

Interesting.  I guess the first thing I should do is figure out the profile.  I was leaning towards DSA or R3 SA mainly for personal preference.  Then I'll go from there.  Thank you.


Anyone have other thoughts on profile or should I get some type of poll set up?

Alphas would be doubleshot, modifiers would be dyesub

I believe he was referring to the dark legend version of the "Aurebesh" alphas being dyesubbed and the "rest" (modifiers, etc) doubleshot. It would be quite expensive to make the alphas doubleshot since they'd have to cut legend molds for all the letters.

Correct.  I'm not going to worry about those for now.  I'm going to concentrate on the profile and getting the initial sets dialed in first.  Then I want to find someone to do some 3d renders and go from there with any additional add ons.

Patience my young keyboarder, soon your time shall come.


I updated OP with some new graphics and reorganized some things.  Also shifting gears ever so slightly.  My original ideas were based mostly off Luke Skywalkers uniform.  I've decided to just design it based around Rebel Alliance pilot uniforms in general to open up more possibilities. 

Tweaked KLE renders and some new stuff coming later.  :cool:

I agree.  That's one reason I'm playing with some other options as I know Carbon had an orange alpha option, then the 2 you mentions.  I'm trying to keep it looking like other sets, while still sticking to the theme as much as possible.  I didn't cross check to see if any of these colorways had similarities, so hopefully they don't lol.

And on second glance, I could probably do the first 2 kits combined in to 1 set by offering an alternate alpha option if there was interest.

The only way would be the novelties with the xwing and rebel logo, neither of which will probably make it unfortunately.

Thanks to everyone else that checked it out and left feedback.  New renders will be up soon.

I've updated the OP with a bunch of updates that I've been working on.  Also, after a quick email with Melissa from SP and a message to CQ_Cumbers, I will be adding a couple orange and yellow polycarb keycaps to represent the helmet visors.  I'm not exactly sure what keys yet, but I tossed a couple in the novelties kit for now.

I'm really liking the new colorway, not so much in-your-face with orange.  Let me know what everyone thinks.  :thumb:

Thanks to everyone that has showed interest, commented, left feedback or messaged me so far!

Oh and 1 other thing.. I hope to have some info back soon regarding the X-wing and Rebel logo novelties.

Personally, I'd like to do SA.. most likely SA R3, if anything to give it more of a 'retro' feel.

Nice keyset design! Any chance of being sued by whoever that owns the rights to SW?

Otherwise, the set looks good, if there are no legal issues. ^-^

The only way would be the novelties with the xwing and rebel logo, neither of which will probably make it unfortunately.

Thanks to everyone else that checked it out and left feedback.  New renders will be up soon.

I saw a custom key in keypuller with the Lambda logo made by Signature Plastics, and I was wondering if Valve agreed to it. Unlikely that Disney would let you use Star Wars related images, but I'm curious how it worked for the Lambda key.

I think it's a new thing they are doing.  They printed the Nuka Cola dsa caps for 00zeRO and on his planned SA run they wanted permission to use it.  I haven't asked SP myself so he would know their reasoning.

Just a note about the polycarbonate keys. In 2.25u or 2.75u sizes the inserts (legend support grid / first shot) are a different size to the key, so they may not look quite as nice in polycarbonate as the 1u. Have a look at the underside of some SA profile Enter and Shift keys to see what I mean:

115793-0

2u Row 1 Backspace, 2.25u Row 3 Enter, 2.75u Row 3 Shift.

Note how the 2.25u has gaps either side of the support and the 2.75u has it shifted over to the right (left side when viewed from the top of the cap). I'm not yet sure what the Row 4 version support looks like, but should have that info soon.

Buying more keycaps,
it really hacks my wallet,

Would that affect a blank cap as well, or just if the cap had a doubleshot legend?

Will there be an international kit?

I'm going to concentrate on getting the initial kits nailed down and enough interest going first.  If there's demand for it as well as ergodox kits and other layouts, of course they will be implemented.

...

Yes, unfortunately it affects both since they use the same final mold which includes the space for the first shot insert. I think 2.25u would look pretty good, actually, since it's symmetrical, but 2.75u may look a bit odd. Anyhow, was just a heads up about the structures.

Set design is looking very good, by the way. I like it a lot.

Just looked over the renders again. No stepped Caps Lock? You can probably throw that in the Adapter Kit.
