[IC] Enjoypbt G81-3000 SAT set
« on: Thu, 24 January 2019, 01:30:08 »
Hello. I've been asked by KBDfans to design a set to be produced by Enjoypbt based on the old Cherry G81-3000 set.
So far, it has been decided that it will follow the original design except that it will have Text+Icon modifiers rather than just icons.

I have started another google form here with some additional questions.

UPDATE: 14/02/2019 - Windows 95 OS key is leading in the google form but I am thinking about adding 1u diamond, 1.25u and 1.5u super keys as well as having 1u and 1.25u Windows 95 OS keys.

I donít mind the idea of a more grey base as opposed to the usual beige, but please leave the legend colors in tact. Itís just not a SAT set without those sexy, blue front-printed legends :)

I would like to see the legends from 3000 used over 3004 as well.

I think a beige set would be pretty great. A lot of grey sets coming in development or already out.

I am of the same opinion too. Would love to see this come to life with amazing legending

Would like to have the legends remain relatively the same, but I'm open to the idea of different keycap colors.

Get rid of the horrible homing bars and I'm in. As for colours, my personal preference would be for the OG Cherry look.

That is something that I don't think can realistically be done and I personally like scooped and barred homing keys.

I vote for keeping it as close to OG as possible. Both in terms of legend colors, *and* keycap colors. If OG is beige, then keep it beige. But thatís just my opinion.

I would like to echo this sentiment, with the addition of a couple of navy accent keys to match the side-printed legends!

Would you keep the Czech layout with front-printed English ledgends like in the link?  I would definitely buy that.

I think if you're going to go about mimicking a retro set it's best to keep to the OG colors.

Yup. At that point, I'd be considering a name change for the set. I just think there is scope for something new rather than rehashing old sets. Those keysets were made when keyboards were all beige but now there I so much variety that we needn't limit ourselves.

It looks like the consensus is for beige and original colours.
I have created a google form to round out some of the other options that haven't been discussed much.

Something like this would probably be best staying as close to the original as you can. Though I must admit it would be cool to see you design an ePBT set that uses icons for all modifier keys and not just the 60% modifiers.

Not that many people have responded yet but text+icons seems more popular so far which is different to the original design. I'd personally prefer text+icon as well so that there are more options to mix and match modifier keys since 9009 already covers beige coloured icon mods.

I agree with this. I don't mind doing a homage to an old keyset, but must we limit ourselves to the same old same old? Slice it up, add some accents in there! Maybe navy blue to match the sub legends, which I believe was mentioned earlier.

I'll be leaving the google form open for a bit longer but so far, it looks like the majority of you want text+icon and with the Czech sublegends of the G81-3000.
I'll start working on the new legends sometime this week.

This is something that I've stressed to KBDfans as well but the samples I've received for Kuro/Shiro has sideprinted legends that are much cleaner than they were for BoW. I agree that it will make or break the set.

Votes are still pretty split with regards to OS key preferences but the win 95 logo is leading.
Something that I am considering if having win 95 key as the main OS key but adding 1u diamond keys for hhkb layout and 1.5u super keys for WKL where a lot of people use control in hhkb position but it looks odd with 2 control keys on the left side.

Also looking to split the kit into core + numpad like I am doing for Kuro/Shiro.

I personally like the sound and feel of them but your preferences may be different.

On a separate note, 60 people have filled out the latest form and these are the results so far:


Windows 95 is leading but the diamond key isn't too far behind. What do people think about my previous suggestion of adding 1u diamond keys and 1.5u super keys in conjunction with 1u and 1.25u Windows 95 keys?
