There will be several different options to choose from. For now, you can verify the Solar Alphas, the Rams (Nordic/Space Runes), Kobe (Japanese Hiragana) and the last teaser. Inspect the clues for yourself, maybe call Roskosmos for help?!
Modifiers

The two classic colorways will be available - Apollo (blue) and Ares (orange). These full kits contain enough keycaps to complete both the regular and custom 60% keyboards, all the way to tenkeyless and winkeyless form factors. Are these kits ideal for you? What other keycaps do you need? Let me know!
The Micons are an exclusive iconography convention that I invented and designed, present on Canvas XDA, Pulse SA, Laser GMK and others. They are a retro futuristic aesthetic representation for keyboard symbols. All of the glyphs should theoretically be self explanatory and recognizable for the average computer user.


Numpads

Standalone numpads are available in two different variations – Apollo (blue) and Ares (orange).

Exclusive for the Apollo colorway which is the original Godspeed scheme, this kit is designed as a standalone Filco MiniLa modifiers kit, and it is also an add-on kit for a multitude of odd custom layouts.
Ortho

These are standalone modifier kits for ortholinear keyboards, such as the OLKB Planck, Preonic, and several others. They are available in both colorways- Apollo and Ares. Are you fully covered with these? Let me know!
Ergo

Available in both colorways, by request of the community those kits are universal and offer a multitude of classic legends.
Layouts & Systems

International kits covering Nordic countries and also Germany plus the United Kingdom. There's also the Colevrak DH kit.
Novelties
search
search

The Novelties kit come with the classic Godspeed logos which I conceived initially as the Hydrogen atom and it's lone electron. I decided to include a graphic element similar to the one present on the original NASA logo as a tribute to their original seal. A multitude of colorful keycaps related to space modules are present in this kit as well. There's also the Micons variety with colorful accents and Space Race accents as well!
Milky Way
search

search

search

search
Hand designed planetary, celestial bodies and space paraphernalia novelty logos, applied on color coordinated keycaps as a tribute to the Solar System and the human Space Exploration. There are 13 keycaps – enough to completely cover Esc + Function Row on 75%, tenkeyless, 96% and 100% keyboards or replace the entire Number Row on 60% keyboards. This kit can also be used as a whole set of modifiers on some mini keyboards. The designs cover the nine planets that orbit the Solar System, the Sun, the Moon, the Halley’s Comet and the Voyager I probe.
Mitonauts
search
Hand designed astronaut novelty logos, applied on color coordinated keycaps as a tribute to the Apollo 11 crew, the protagonist character Mark Watney, played by Matt Damon on The Martian fictional book/movie and Toyohiro Akiyama, the 1st person of Japanese nationality to fly in space.

I am working on new desk mat designs with my friend Mike from Novel Keys (these are prototypes) and there's also these pins and stickers made by my friend Garret from Dixie.Mech! Would you be interested in those? Let me know what you think! I am also working on new exciting stuff including custom keyboards and other secrets, hope you're excited!

What typeface will be used for the dyesub process?
The exact one with the same exact thickness and approximate color seen on the child kits and renders.
How thick are MT3 PBT keycaps?
About 1.8mm thick according to Matteo Spinelli, creator of this amazing profile.

Any chance for Lunar Alphas?
To avoid confusion with the Exotic kit, I recommend swapping the locations of the R4 2U DEFLECT and the R4 2.25U GIMBAL keycaps. Even though they are labeled, the 2U DEFLECT is in the standard location of a 2.25U so some might just assume the incorrect size. (I put Alphas in this cropped Exotic kit picture to show what I am talking about.)

My wallet is in trouble 😱
MT3 solar alphas a little brighter than XDA?
This looks so good. SOOO GOOOD.
Btw, I don't see the 6.5u space bar for Corsair keyboard. Am I correct?
you sure have a lot of time
Hi MiTo!  Curious to know what set(s) I would need for my GK64 keyboard? Thank you for bringing this back to life! Have been anxiously awaiting its return.
Zoephyrii
Alphas + Mods chief!
For the Mono kit, is it possible to add a set for the symbols in place of the numbers?
Juka
I feel you, but I think it would be a very big kit and not many guys requested this... Let’s see, stay tuned for the next update coming Wed!
MiTo
No problem, looking forward to the drop
I will buy these if lunar alphas become available
h.parks
There are not going to be color variants of alphas, but thanks for checking it out!
@MiTo Im guessing that japanese sublegends aren't going to be a thing? I get that they have been a bit overdone recently.
JLBoi69
Sublegends do not phisically fit the surface of the keycaps. If you noticed, this project has center legends, not corner legends like the sublegends I invented for Laser GMK and others copied.
@MiTo so can I make the educated guess that the last mitonaut is going to be Yuri Gagarin? Any chance you could make that a tribute to the first dog to orbit the Earth and who sadly gave her life? Or perhaps add it to the kit? RIP, Laika. Also, it would be fun to know what the writing on the Japanese space race caps says. If anyone can lend a hand I would appreciate it.

Omg I’d love a space dogstronaut

+1 for a Laika novelty cap <3
@MiTo interesting new update and tease. Btw, which kits will I need to cover these keebs: TKL, HHKB layout and Planck?
Any chance we'll see some Lunar Alphas?
search
I think this belongs here. Look at those colors.
@MiTo I really like the overall theme and style of the announcements on your website. Minor nitpick: the first update https://mitormk.files.wordpress.com/2018/11/0-dispatch-1.png?w=676&h=881 had the wrong date :)
Noleti
Thank you very much for the heads up, and glad you enjoy those! Yeah, that mistake was my fault, I fixed it but it took a little while to update... Here on MD you can see the correct one though (in the poll too)... Somebody pointed out on the Instagram! Sorry about that... 🙈
For today's update - introducing the classic Kobe! This nice kit will be available together with all the other options. I also tweaked the Exotic kit, removed the System and added/improved two novelty kits. The all new Space Race (Japanese and 🤭 accents) and the Mitonauts which now has Toyohiro Akiyama. I remove the Systems kits (Mac/Windows kit) because I don't think they are necessary. Belo you can see some Kobe renders too, hope you enjoy them! There are tons of new renders on the project page as well - http://mitormk.com/godmt3 Stay tuned for the next week update, some pretty cool stuff is in the works!

My first thought when I saw this update was "wow, those classified and top secret legends look amazing" was only a little bit disappointed once the realisation hit that something better was going to replace them. But hey, I'll put it out there anyway, any chance of some 'Top Secret' novelties? (-:
I don't have MT3 keycaps yet so I don't know what it would feel like, but I think a kit for homing keys (deep dish) for the entire home row (all 8 keys instead of just the 2 under your index fingers) would be great. Old keyboards used to have this I think. It would be 10 deep dish keys, ASDKL; for Querty and REIO for all the alternative layouts supported with the Colevrak DHm kit. On the topic of alternative layouts, adding just the mono ; key in the QWERTY row to the mono kit would extend the mono kit support to Colemak, Norman, Workman, Minimak and Asset layouts, only Dvorak would require a bunch more.
gimpel
I kind of feel the same. I got blank keys on my ergodox so I can have a fully scooped home row (SA profile).
Hi, this looks amazing. Will it support the non-standard top row of the Vortex Race3? Cheers
Colds
I am trying to make the molds required for proper compatibility, please stay tuned for the incoming update next Wednesday!
MiTo
Great, thanks
Hi @MiTo! Would like to ask what are the kits I may need for a HHKB layout such as M60A?
BserLarry
Cheers mate, you only need Alphas/Mods. It can be Alphas, Rams, one of the two unreleased kits, plus the Text Mods or the Micons, you name it! Does that make sense?
MiTo
Hey awesome! It’s amazing the base kit itself has so much compatibility!
Is it possible to add a R2 1.75 key and a R3 1.5 godspeed/enter key to exotic kit?

Hoping to get this set on a Minivan :)
lking
R2 and R3 are mirrors of each other IIRC, so if you get the icon miss you can flip the capslock key for minivan support.
I'm considering mixing godspeed mods with susuwatari alphas... am I crazy or will this look awesome?
internetparty
Lol I do not see how that will go at all. Maybe susuwatari alphas, and then godspeed mods? The orange ones.
From my initial scan, Whitefox can be 100% covered with only alphas/mods? I’ve seen the backspace and right shift can be problematic sometimes.
NineTails
Yes it can, only Alphas + Mods!
So sad, Supernova Alphas not given :(

Yeah I am personally hoping the last set of alphas is blue or orange (I'm not sure which color "supernova" is supposed to be). Hopefully we get at least one of those. Personally I would want the blue ones.

@MiTo Ortho Micons??
mikethetiger
Thank you very much for the feedback, but options can only go to a certain point and beyond that it becomes unpractical... We already have both colorway options for all modifier kits (Apollo and Ares), several options for Alphas (hope you are excited for this Wednesday's and the next reveals - they are bomb) not to mention the Micons variation. However the Planck/Orthos are already covered by the Micons. The look below can be easily achieved with the Apollo Micons or Ares Micons!

MiTo
Thanks for they reply. Can’t wait to grab some keys on this drop. Missed XDA, but still have my SA keys.
WHY ya gotta do this to us @MiTo? Godspeed is my favorite set of all time, but I missed SA, so naturally I got in on Godspeed XDA (typing on it right now actually). And yet, MT3 is by far my favorite profile. I can't afford all these keysets! And my wife basically hates me at this point.
I think a nice kit additon would be ortho icon mods. I've seen a lot of people asking for Rams + Ortho kits for pulse.

Oh I missed that! Cool!!
Dgordon
And there are even more possibilities if you take for example the Milky Way (planets) kit or the astronauts. Things like the Preonic and others are also covered!
hey:) question about the alphas, what colour will they be irl? i can't really decide based upon the renders. e.g. knowing what signature plastics colour code it will be close to, would help somewhat! cheers, looking forward to this drop :)

thanks @MiTo & @cijanzen, that's very helpful! yeah Ares is more to my taste, but looking forward to how the final colours turn out! lovely looking set anyway.
That's reassuring. The alphas in those photos are way too warm and saturated. Hopefully they'll be closer to white for the final product.
Any chance of an Ergo Micons kit? (Apollo(; )
If only this was DSA
What options are there for the standard Enter key aside from the 'Godspeed' text? I like the text mods, but only having 'Godspeed' for the r3 2.25 doesn't feel ideal.
gigaflop
Stay tuned for the upcoming reveal of next Wednesday and the Wednesday after. There's something truly awesome in the works and GODSPEED won't be the only option. We already have the Micons (and colored variations) but there will be an extremely exciting option as well. Hope you are excited! Check back in the next couple of weeks and let me know what you think.
