Story

Quote

“The sea is everything. It covers seven-tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and life-giving. It is an immense desert place where man is never lonely, for he senses the weaving of Creation on every hand. It is the physical embodiment of a supernatural existence For the sea is itself nothing but love and emotion.”



– Captain Nemo



From the creator of The Amazing Chocolatier, here it is Nautilus, a keycap set inspired by Jules Vernes 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Adding more kits is not on my plan, since GMK's MoQ is pretty high.

I suggest you to move the ISO keys to the Explorer set; that, will encourage people the only need an ANSI standard set to get the base set, kat the lowest possible price.

I don't think it would be fair to move the ISO keys out of the main kit since ISO is a standard and the explorer kit's objetive is to offer compatibility with non-standard layouts.

Hey Zambu :)

Glad you make that IC.As i said before great design and i am sure it will be very succesful. In this regard dont be shy to add some more kits or even novelties.

By the way i want to suggest to add a cyan on deep blue modifiers addon. This will give more customization and ofcourse draw more attention :)

If you really believe in this set, you could offer a NORDE/International kit for it. Should this set go through the roof like GMK Carbon, there are pretty good changes a NORDE kit could even hit GMK MOQ.

Just doing a little NORDE lobbying here :)

The problem with the ISO layout is this: ISO/UK, ISO/Nordic, ISO/Germany and some more. There should be a an International ISO kit. I live in sweden and it is very hard to find ISO/Nordic keycaps sets here, 1 shop in sweden that tryin to sell some ISO/Nordic keycaps sets and that's why I don't use my ISO/Nordic k - boards anymore.

http://www.maxgaming.se/keycaps


I joined the first round of the Jukebox SA GB on Massdrop last year and there was an International kit to buy + a ISO Enter kit. But still you have the buy the ANSI base kit to get the ISO/Nordic layout, no problem with that, I have some ANSI k - boards too. That's the very big problem with the ISO layout. You can use ISO/UK/German sets on a ISO/Nordic k - board.


ANSI and ISO/Nordic Jukebox SA sets. The 2 orange pumpkins don't belong to the Jukebox set.


This is the setup: 2 ANSI base kits
             
                          2 Numpad kits

                          2 Novelties kits

                          2 International kits

                          2 Non standard and color kits

                          2 ISO Enter kits

All this cost about 3000+ swedish kronor (not cheap).

Ok, small update about Nautilus:

First of all, please keep in mind that this is a GMK set and the MOQ is high, so it is unviable to add kits like, for instance AZERTY or making a OS X kit…

Here are some changes that I'll be performing to the keyset:
  • The base kit will cover UK ISO as well as yellow arrows.
  • I will add a second pair of R4 1U Control and Alt to the explorer kit
  • Finally, I will explore the possibility of making a novelty keycap for this set.

Thanks for the support  :thumb:

I've read arguments in the line that ANSI users should patronage the ISO's; by the way, I use both, but prefer the ISO enter, what makes me an ISO user, still, I think that ANSI only users do not have to pay for ISO. Anyways, it is your set, your rules, your call.

I'll be checking this thread from time to time to see how this is going. This is honestly one of the best keyset designs I've seen and the fact you're adding ISO UK TKL support in the base kit makes this even more desirable.
