I'm liking this set a lot. Please include UK-ISO in base; if you don't, I definitely won't be buying it and if you do I definitely will.

There is at least one person on this page that definitely won't be buying this set.

it sure is, I wanted to teach myself how to render first before I updated the IC. Should be within a few weeks. Looking to announce vendors as well.

Any hope for an R1 equals (=) key so we can use this on compact 1800 boards like Zambumon's Sar?

Most likely not. I'm looking to have a pretty ambitious base kit since I am switching the black to stock GMK to get better prices and there are other keys that I would prefer to add that would be of more use.

i understand not putting it in base, but please consider an extension kit with that key as well as 7u spacebar support for macos users who detest 1.5u Alt keys. (this would require two 1.5u Super keys and an additional 1u Alt.) honestly, no point in waiting a year or more for a kit that doesn't support my preferred layout. if it's niche, i'm ok with that (but it's not).

I plan on adding 3 key 40s to the base but have decided against a dedicated kit.

The set is staying as icon mods. I highly prefer them for this set because of the less busy look.

Yeah, I am for sure interested in adding an extension kit similar to the ones found on GMK Jags/Taiga. Would also be a good excuse to add some shine throughs to the set.  :thumb:

YES!!! I'll get my 1.5u Supers! I love an extension kit as they seem to get more popular as times goes on.

(weirdly have collected macro column'd keyboards recently too, I'll welcome that as well ;))

I'd prefer having accent space bars or at least a 6.25u gray space bar. I like to have more color combos.

Probably not. Out of 400 responses only 25 people asked for a 40s kit so far. I am adding 3 key 40s for physical layout support but I do not plan on adding a dedicated kit since it will most likely have trouble hitting MOQ.

I am really digging the look of this. Gives me metal vibes especially with the Iron rendor.

Some updates:

More
- The custom RAL has been changed to stock CR. I've decided to do this since the difference was negligible and will allow for more flexibility in kitting and pricing.

- I've added 3 key 40s to base as well as full Alice support. 

- I've dropped accent arrows from base since I don't see them being particularly necessary and will only lend itself to driving up cost whereas I'd rather have alice/40s.

- I've done some new renders on the Onyx and 910 with more to come.

- I'm working on building up the rest of the kits and still deciding on some things (extension kit, r5) before I present them here for further feedback.

- Vendors will be announced next update most likely and the set is slated to run early q4

Thanks

Sad to see that this has moved to CR. Whilst it's good for compatibility, it means the uniqueness of the set as a whole has been diminished.

Personally glad that it has moved to CR as I won't have to purchase separate spacebar kits.

This was definitely a criticism I was expecting. In reality, the difference between CR and the custom RAL was completely overstated in the original renders. The difference is pretty arbitrary in real life and all I saw it doing was driving up cost on a kit that I would like to be comprehensive and well priced. My main goal for the set was a more subdued look with the grey legends, icon mods, and an encompassing base kit which is what it currently represents. I do understand the disappointment though.
