I have one on my board and it doesn't even light up.

No. To expand on this point, when I was in Taiwan I did find some boards with Zhuyin, but it differed amongst brands and was not really standardized. I do not want to create something out of thin air and have grammatical errors or something much more grave. Rather my goal was to #1 utilize the Zhuyin molds Novelkeys and I had made with the success of the Zhuyin Alphas and #2 to create something that was in line with other OG Cherry sets. I'm not overly well versed in the OG Cherry space but most (if not all) of what I've seen have had English mods.

Hell yeah. Any chance for 3u bars?
Ask away in the IC form.

No. Classic Retro, to me, isn't just about using L9 and U9, it's the whole "what if Cherry made these sublegends available back then". (You can read more on that in the reply to whirlwind)

Great stuff, if you could get the original cherry font on the windowed caps rather than GMK's stock one that would be absolutely incredible.

But pls consider icon-only mods, or an icon-only mods kit.
And an accent kit for ESC, enter, space, arrow keys.

+1 to alpha only kit. I think by the time the gb starts most of the people who like the classic sets will own the mod colors already.
