I like the idea of 9009/muted style mods to keep it more simple. I think black would work really well.

Five by four and locks are loaded. Two in the chamber and the safely is out. I know nothing about guns and my trigger finger is cocked like the hammer on my M-16 revolver, ready to let loose on this. Fire in my hole!!

Noted. I'll test it next week.

Zekkin already suggested them, they are on my list. I'll test them too but my personal preference is to go monochrome with this set.

Denied. Set worked as intended and confused Quakemz, this means we have the perfect camouflage color.

This is probably why people have suggested that bright orange cap.

Just my 2 cent but this is kinda flag and generic looking, I know its harsh sorry but its a IC and better to be honest and harsh the sugar coated fluff.

What I think needs to be changed.

The tan color is amazing that is about the only amazing thing about this keyset.

Once again just my opinion but think the mods need to be another color. That way they break up the set a bit perhaps https://www.colorhexa.com/4b5320.png which is Simple OD Green.

Then instead of using white legends go black. There nothing tactical about white.

I am also going to suggest if you want to keep the sand tones then go with varying sand colors.

I am assuming you got your inspiration from firearms that have been done in Tan colors. Those work because of the varying textures, this just falls flat.

Hope you don't take my feedback as offensive. I am just being honest with out a bunch of sugar coating.

That's exactly what I wanted: Generic and monotone. I think it contrasts well with the rest of my projects.

I prefer white alphas, they are more subtle, if I wanted black legends I'd have gone with dyesub PBT and I like more the white accent than a dark one, I tested both prior to posting the set. That being said, people have suggested a couple ideas for an accent kit so I might have to include one.

Trying to emulate camouflage patterns with varying tones won't be as nice and clean as a monotone set. I'll test some darker modifiers, but just so people could see them. Ideally I want the set to be just one shade.

I really like the mono color a lot.  I think it helps to unify the keyboard and highlight the surrounding case.  Im interested in darker mods only if they are an addon

Imo, "tactical" would be with black legends in that airbrushed stencil font. (Literally the truck you showed), with white accents.

Military seems to be about most obvious legibility and production effeciency.

There have already been a couple of rounds of a military themed set with a stenciled font in SA profile. It had guns and skulls and stars. This is something different, which I like.

And if I wanted that, there are a handful of dyesub options that would be a better fit for this purpose.

I like the more subdued design, really classier than a camo/stenciled look imho.

That's a good description of what I want with the set. Obviously, I'll have to be careful when sampling the colors to guarantee that legends are readable.

Like the color scheme of the set and wouldnt mind, if it stayed mono colored. Though I wouldnt necessarily skip the set if the mods would have different colors.
Im really not interested in any military themed novelties since Im not really feeling this kinda thing. Ofc, this always depends on what they look like.

I'm not sure if I'd even make novelties for this set. While they can be cool, I think the barebones aspect that a monochrome set is interesting.

The set looks pretty good, the white legends reminds me of the old Desert Battle Dress uniform that the US used from the 80's- mid 90's. I think a light brown accent key in place of the current white offerings to really emulate that pattern would make the set just a bit better IMO. Regardless, at this point I'd consider picking up a set if the price was reasonable.

Maybe for the novelties we could have a couple extra accent keys and just one novelty.

No. Right now my top priority for rendering should be (the set formerly known as) GMK Samurai Blue.

Yeah. That's why we love you so much.
You always consider for us.
Maybe try to make some 1u novelties would be enough.

I've been tight on money lately... Been having to do a lot of "...Do I REALLY need this?"
But this is the only set I've come across that I'd buy in an instant if I could.
Definitely in if it ever goes live.

I wonder how it'd look on a polycarb board?

I love your monotone theme, and these colors specifically.  It also inspires a hunger for modern desert camo, which might make for an interesting set down the road. Especially if dyesub doubleshot caps are possible.  Something like this:
