Honestly would love to do HHKB arrows as well as I go between the two personally but even VIM arrows aren't that popular. It will probably have to be one of the first sets to be dropped.


Also vendors on board so far:
MEA - SandKeys
EU - eloquentclicks

Hoping to run this after Vert and Windbreaker? Pretty concerned about hitting MOQ with how DCS Mountaineering sales are going right now.

I don't think you need to worry too much, I would say Mountaineering not reaching MOQ is pushing through to GB without addressing feedback from the IC.
Even though DCS WoB might already exist, this kitting is more comprehensive, lower GB prices is also a factor in your favour.

DCS Mountaineering was scuffed asf. Looked like a set that could've been great, especially if it was all one color, specifically all the color of the alphas. Unfortunate because def woulda been a cop if it hadn't been for the modifiers. The more I look at this, however, the more I want it ngl. At first, was VERY skeptical, but heavily considering picking up extras for this if it does run

In the kitting of the base set, some keycaps belong to the 40s better, and you may move them to the 40s-kit.

No.

The extensions kit is missing R4 \| for full UK ISO support.
Yes, it'd be good to full UK ISO support via the extensions kit. Happy to see this in Gorton font.

That one was missed by me initially, that will be added to extensions as well -- I'll get renders updated soon-ish. Thank you all for catching that.

Quote
I am so in for this. Please give us a CMYW kit as well.

I ordered color chips for this but honestly not a big fan of CYMW on WoB. I also don't really want to split sales between two accent kits on a set when I'm already pretty scared of hitting MOQ as it stands. We'll see when I get colors in hand. Clearly there is demand for CYMW so I'll see what I can do.

Is there any chance for Signature Plastics to produce a Nordy kit?

I believe SP has molds for these since DCS Reaper had a NorDE. Will add it as a question for the updated IC form.

Other updates:
- Vendors are pretty much all decided. If you are a vendor in a region that is not currently covered, please reach out.
- After getting color chips in hand, I'll post another IC form for CYMW and NorDE.

If the set gets a NorDE kit, it will become a must-to-get-it set for me. I always like the DCS sound and feel, which is different than the "heavy" feeling that the original Cherry and GMK keys have. Also better than the Cherry profile PBTs.

I would assume so. I think only GMK has the Cherry standard stabilizer mounts which would require a custom layout for support or vintage keyboard. Personally I would be down for the Cherry spec stabilizer spacing because I would want to use this set on vintage boards.

Emailed SP asking for new quote with adjusted renders as well as for this BAE mold.

No. I doubt this set will even hit MOQ anymore with Drop’s current GMK WOB sale but whatever, we'll give it a shot.

[IC] DCS White on Black

Hello Treeleaf. Pet pet.

Updates

Sorry for the bump but I have some updates to share.
- Renders reflect finalized kitting
- Not adding CYMW or NorDE, I'm sorry. ISO layout support in base and ISO UK in extension is all I want to do at this time.
- Will be working on finalizing pricing with vendors after getting a quote within this week, thank you all for your patience

Please fill out IC form if you haven't already.
