Love the options, but it's a shame the novs and wake bars are two separate kits. Still, definitely gonna pick this up.

Ergo blanks doesnt need the same number of keys as the ergo legends. The point of blanks is you only really need 1 key per available spot. That kit could fill mods on big my boardwalks. Have some left over even.

Do all kits glow?

I also notice no 1u R1 FN key in either of the mod kits - is this intended?

Oh noo what happened to the Hangul alphas. I was super into it up until the addition of those double sub-legends  :-[

Seeing how those double sub-legends just add a character that it is basically the main one but twice I don't think it is as necessary as to make the set look so overcrowded.
I don't write Korean but that is just my opinion. It's a pity because I was truly in love with it, but I really don't like the keycaps filled with legends and so much purple. I will have to move on to the Katakana which I don't like as much.

Good prices for europe on the other hand. Thank you for making this possible Ulliam. But I'm sad to let the Hangul go.

I felt it's a mistake, there are 3 1u GUI (code/super) key (where usually you have 2 in a kit), one of them is next to 1.75u shift, which is usually where the 1u FN key is

It will be 1.1mm of PBT plastic they're not designed as shine through but you will be able to charge the underside of the cap with inboard leds, just that i wasn't trying to show that here.

A bit late to this but isn't KAT advertised as ~1.6 mm thick? Is this set thinner because of the GiD plastic?

Really interested because of KAT and the glow in the dark element, but would be a bit hesitant if this isn't as thicc as other KAT sets.

While I think you are looking at Latin with Hangul sublegends and I am interested in the Hangul mono legends, but I just have to echo this sentiment. I think it would look better without the sublegends entirely.

Same, was also hoping for a R3 1u pipe key in the ortho kit. It's the only key that I'm missing for a 12 column split/ortho. Putting the [{ key there just doesn't feel right if there's no closing bracket. It's probably going to be a second backspace then.

I would like to know this as well. It might change a bit the sound profile due to the thickness?

Just so we're clear, the green color on all the sets is actually green right? Not glow in the dark? I may sound stupid but just had to check  :D .

Yes, I'm sorry this was an error on my part, They are the same thickness are regular KAT keycaps.

So the mono legend alphas are all white-ish GiD, whereas the dual legends and dayglow are more green GiD? Or is this just a rendering artifact?

This should clarify things @phinix
All keys are made of Glow in the Dark plastic
The white areas are RAW GiD, every other area is printed.The Green and purple will still glow are varying brightnesses. I am still awaiting my samples being produced by keyreative but they have assured me theyve made a new batch of GiD plastic and im in the queue to get samples made and as soon as they are i will be doing many tests!

Not sure if its just the render, but is the daylight and glow colour for Hangul and Katakana kit different?

It looks like the UK ISO key legends are in white in both the Beta/Icon-Mods and Beta/Text-Mods kits.

This means that to have a full colour matching UK ISO layout you only have the option to use the Alpha/Alpha kit as this is the only one that also has the legends in white and sublegends in purple. There are no colour variations of the UK ISO keys to match the other English Alpha kits (Dayglow, Raw and TKL), and the white legends on black of the UK ISO keys will stick out like a sore thumb on anything other than Alpha/Alpha kit.

I really do appreciate the addition of UK ISO (bravo!), but its a shame it is limited to complimenting 1 of 9 alpha sets.

On a plus note; it allows me to save some pennies.

Thanks. Printed caps.. doesn't sound good.

Printed = dye sublimated. And keyreative offers "reverse dye sub" which means you pick a base material, that only shows through the legends on the cap. And you sublimate a different colour over the rest of it. That is why these can be glow in the dark in the first place.

PBT is always "printed" using dye sub. Any reasonable quality ones anyway. You can pretty much this yourself using laserprinter toner and heat. It last pretty much forever, since the material is permanently stained with it. Which is why you cannot do dark caps with (very) light colours in PBT without going double shot. Unless you reverse the proces and do reverse dye sub. I learned this from Minterly's KAT eternal set which uses the same method from keyreative.

So no need to worry, these aren't 3D printed or something... (Yeah... That kind of sucks, both FDM and Resin, but metal "printed" caps can be nice)

There's another Artkey raffle tonight at 10pm Friday Eastern / 2:00 Saturday GMT for anyone interested. This time for the Bull v2 and Devourer sculpts. Not quite as expensive as the Sirius was, but still really steep at $85. 10 of each colorway.

https://artkeyuniverse.com/shop/detail/cyberspace-bd



What I'm really hoping for is for Brewcaps to come out with a Cyberspace Pain though...

Edit: I just saw that Brewcaps posted a GiD Pain cap 2 hours ago to Reddit! I should have known that would happen. Deets here: https://brewcaps.store/collections/pain/products/pain-gazer-green && https://old.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/i1agnw/artisan_brewcaps_pain_glow_in_the_dark_green/



Doesn't quite match, but close enough.

I was a dummy and thought it is printed over - like label  :confused:


One more question - why alphas look like white-ish legends, where TKL set looks like green legends?
