Just noticed that it comes with a hard keyboard case! Love the extra miles you are going to for this as I would hate to get a ding in the keyboard! Are there any pictures of what the case will be like either way I am so excited for this :)

South facing LEDs

Same style as Mira's bag but just smaller to fit 60%

Under 1.2kg. If adding solid bag and package might be around 2kg.

I'll give a definite info when I get it from EVE.

I have to ask, what's the advantage of a brass plate? I would be using tactile switches, most likely Zealios or something. If that matters at all.

From my knowledge which isn't huge it is mostly for looks but there is also an element of the sound and feel when you bottom out as the keycap will make contact with the plate. I have used both alu and brass and couldn't noticeably tell the difference.

Brass is more dense than aluminum, and gives a more rigid base for switches. It won't flex as much on key presses so presses and bottoming out feels more firm. Also the density gives a slightly deeper sound on bottoming out.

Many people prefer more dense plates for linear switches, and more flexible plates for tactile switches but that's personal preference

Damn now I want to try a brass plate again.... I'm already ordering an extra one with the GB so might go with one of each but cant decide..... to many options!

Ah okay, I gotcha. I'll probably get the brass plate then since it's something different and I like the idea of having a deeper sound.

What is the actual color being used for the army green? Like is there a pantone? I'm super torn about it cause I really like the idea of a green case, but there is a very thin line between a good and a bad green for me.

Has EVE done anything similar before?

Is it just gonna look like this:

Yes, EVE has done some green before.

I see two, both are on MOON.

One is on the bottom case: check the last image of https://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/2944
The other is on the top case: check the third last image of https://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/1518

Personally I think the AmryGreen looks like the 2nd one of these two greens (they all should be rendering I guess, for real looks check this: https://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/3636.)

It is darker than your rendering.

Personally, ArmyGreen loos like a gray green (RGB: 100,150,70 from my point of view). But the moon one seems more likely to be a dark green (RGB: 50,90,10 from my point of view).

hmm... then I choose White! :p

Keep in mind, white isn't white.  It's matte silver (hence the name, Silver white), that will look lighter than silver ano that has more shine.

Keep in mind, white isn't white.  It's matte silver (hence the name, Silver white), that will look lighter than silver ano that has more shine.

Thanks for correcting and i'll update on OP and form

What is the actual color being used for the army green? Like is there a pantone? I'm super torn about it cause I really like the idea of a green case, but there is a very thin line between a good and a bad green for me.

Has EVE done anything similar before?

Is it just gonna look like this:

Eve has done a green on moon and I'll ask Eve to make armygreen to be similar to this color

It is darker than your rendering.

Personally, ArmyGreen loos like a gray green (RGB: 100,150,70 from my point of view). But the moon one seems more likely to be a dark green (RGB: 50,90,10 from my point of view).

hmm... then I choose White! :p

See, I like the green on the moon, but I don't know that I like the render, thats why i think im gonna dark purple :P

I mean, technically it's always just dark grey or darker grey unless you gotta line on some vantablack keyboards :P

If the green will be like the green on the Moon in your pics, I might pick it over the silver. I'm not at all fond of the army connotation, but I do love green. :)

Is there some kind of treatment that prevents oxidation on the brass plate?

I'm also curious about this. Will we need to apply a treatment ourselves?
