Essential to every Cherry MX mechanical keyboard, there are three different options to choose from.

For the Apollo colorscheme, there is a regular legends kit and novelty/iconography counterparts to choose from. As for the Ares kits, novelty and iconography are also available. All Base Modifiers include extra 2u SHIFT, extra 2.25u SHIFT and a center stem CAPS LOCK in order to fully cover standard layout 60% or Tenkeyless keyboards, including the XD60 and the Leopold Cherry MX models.

Covering both the boring/novelty versions of the Apollo colorscheme, together with the Ares novelty/iconography, these kits are meant to cover non-standard 60%, Tenkeyless, 96% and 100% keyboards. There are appropriate non-standard add-ons to complement different bottom rows and off-center CAPS LOCK mounts. The correspondent Base Modifiers kit and prefered Alphas must be included as well, for complete coverage of a non-standard keyboard.


40s Modifiers

The 40s Modifiers kits are add-on kits for their correspondent Base Modifiers kit. In order to cover 40% keyboard layouts such as the JD40, JD45, Vortex Core, Minorca, MiniVan, Sebright, Quark, Mobik, MechMini and various others, the correspondent Base Kit must be included as well. The Cadet 40s kit include proper legends and together with the Cadet Base virtually any 40% keyboard can be flawlessly covered. For those who don’t mind novelty legends or prefer iconography references, the appropriate kits are available as well on both Apollo and Ares colorschemes.

Once again, the Ortho Modifiers standalone kits are available to properly cover non-staggered keyboards, such as the Planck and Preonic for example. The appropriate kits are available on both Apollo and Ares colorschemes featuring regular legends, novelty legends and the iconography convention. Unlike Tsangan Modifiers and 40s Modifiers, the Ortho Modifiers kits are standalone kits, which mean they only require Alphas to completely cover a keyboard. No Base Modifiers are required.

The Ergo Modifiers standalone kits are available to properly cover the ErgoDox and similar standard split keyboards. For non-standard split keyboards the appopriate Space Bars kit must be included as well. Available on both colorschemes, together with boring, novelty and icon legends, the Ergo Modifiers kit only need the desired Alphas to properly cover an ErgoDox.

The exact one seen on the child kits and renders.

About 1.3mm thick.

If you don’t mind using keycaps with completely different profiles at the same time, then yes.
Are the colors used on Godspeed XDA PBT the same ones used on Godspeed SA?
No, the colors are different as Godspeed XDA PBT is slightly more subtle/pale.

Wish there were a NORDE Kit in all colorways :(
Hey, I requested the MT3 Godspeed Custom Kepcap Set the morning the drop was available. They pre-charged my card and then sent an email stating there was some unknown type of payment failure late on Dec 31 and requested payment to be updated by midnight on the 31st. I have been waiting quite some time for this drop and would like to figure out a way to be included this time. I felt like this has been a customer support issue that continues to go unresolved. They tell me I'm completely out of luck because I didn't update within a few hours time. I didn't even check email until late the next day (new years day). Any chance you would be willing to honor my original order? I'd be happy to pay via PayPal, square, etc. I would really appreciate any help you could provide. Thank you for your time. Your consideration is very much appreciated.
I will always, always regret missing this.

Will you do another run someday? Maybe in a different profile or new novelties? :thinkingface:
mito pls rerun this
ill let you slam my bussy for weeks, ill even buy the plane ticket
anyone know the size of happy hacking pro 2 keyboard space bar? will i have to get Odd Bars
You're about to have so much of my money in the next two months it's not even funny
aminobeano
Hope you enjoy the keycaps, thanks for the enthusiasm and support my dude!
Will the "BACK SPACE" text on the 1u key in the ortho set be centered? Beacause it isn't on the renders...
Also, please give us the Milky Wat in Super Nova color.
LastBrat
The Milky Way already is available in Super Nova... And yes, the BS will be centered.
MiTo
Nice! Now I only wish we would get the "cadet" legends in this beautiful Mars orange!
take my money please.... pretty awesome!~
For the Ares Ortho sets, can you add in an orange colored spacebar kit? I know some people love having the alphas match the space bar, but I'm sure others also want the modifiers and space to match.
Also, (for Ortho) shoudn't Enter be called Godspeed? I know it might need to go on two lines, but you already have Backspace on two lines, and it would be nice to have the Ortho sets actually have a Godspeed key.

Blanks works! Was planning on getting that one anyway since I normally move keys around. Are the Ortho space bars going to be convex perchance? 1 & 2U? I understand if they can't be, but I think you said somewhere in a comment you were looking into it.
scarhoof
Looking to make them convex, yes! They should be there.
I want all the novelties... this is gonna get Expensive ... FAST
@MiTo it would be nice if the ortho sets included modifiers for both sides. Gonna have to by two sets just to have both Shift keys.

Good news!
Kr8er
yay!
Yea. Let me just grab one of everything. Don't mind if I do.
Dev/tty, Yuri, Carbon, Nautilus and now this? Wow, you guys have no regard of human life.
Edit: it also doesn't change the fact that Laser is on the horizon. you monster :'(
This is really cool. Hope the drop waits a month, I just dropped on the damn Nautilus set, but I'd be in for this, I think.
I'm all in one this set. Missed the last SA drop. Not gonna happen again.
Hope these color would be more closer to its render than the canvas'.
heliar
What was wrong with the Canvas colors? I know the legends were a problem, but that's been improved before production?
Orac
The sample's color saturation is higher than the render.
I imagine it's too late to have any influence on this, but it would be SO *#@$#$ AWESOME to have a non-alpha set like you did with the runes on the Canvas set or the hiragana-only (no latin characters at all) proposals on the Laser set. Hell, even just bring back the runes from the Canvas set XD No-one understood the moon like our rune-using pagan ancestors
ferretallica
I agree. The symbols used for the modifier keys are well thought-out, and look amazing. I would love to have a similar alphas set too. Maybe as a follow up drop for later, hitting all three colorways? Im sure designing those takes time.
Please make this happen!!!
Yep
I'd be a buyer on this
Are you consid to reissue the SA version as well?
This looks great, I'm definitely in
I want this set so bad! is it out yet???
I'm so ready for this!!!
@MiTo have been thoroughly enjoying the sa set with ergo, above I think there is a typo, the launch key is mislabelled enter ;) it's nice that you have the left bracket key included now. On a tangent, the pitch/roll/panic keys are excellent for ctrl/alt keys on ergo becuase they stick up and are tactile.
Yay, PBT!
Yes I will buy this and a lot of the child kits as well.
Just here to add more comments and bolster more support! I also made sure to post over on the reddit thread and the geekhack thread. We have to make this happen. Smuch a great set!
I was hoping something like this would come around again! SUPER excited!! I missed the Godspeed SA's from a while back.
I hope yours have a much better quality control than theirs - I saw some horror pics!
Pumped for this :D
Gah sure others have said this but I want these so bad! I even got a keyboard in mind for them!
