Great color, I am always a fan of muted color. one small suggestion, fix the keycaps to use Cherry models, these caps look like OEM instead of cherry.

This is an amazing set, very versatile, zen, and a different take on the nature theme.
I am not convinced on the deskmat on one of the designs, but l will wait and see.

Also it would be amazing to get matching salvun keys (some of the latest sets have Rama and salvun keys that actually don't match the set colours at all).

Really looking for this one.

Thank you everyone for all the feedback, suggestions, and kind words.  To answer some specific questions...

Thanks for the comments!  The deskmats in the renders are not the designs that will run with the set.  I just put those designs together really quickly for the purposes of the render.  I wasn't planning on producing those or including them as part of the November Fog offering.  I'm working with proper artists for the deskmats.

I would love work with Salvun for a special keycap for this set, so hopefully that comes to fruition.

Great color, I am always a fan of muted color. one small suggestion, fix the keycaps to use Cherry models, these caps look like OEM instead of cherry.

Ok so I just did the biggest facepalm I've done in years, lmao.  Thank you for your eagle eye observation.  Everything updated in the render files now.

The extensions kit is missing all the necessary keys for UK ISO support, it also requires R3 [#~] and R4 [\|]

Thanks, I'll update the kitting!

I see the potential. I just dont think your first two 'Inspiration' pics match the set at all. The set feels much more muted and pale compared to those deep woodsy colors.

Thanks for the feedback! The goal was to make this set more muted.  The colors are pulled directly from that first photo, but yes, it omits the deeper ones.  That was how I wanted to approach this design as I have also been working on others that are much more squarely in the deep forest theme with those richer colors.

Spacebar kit should be called Logs imo.

You have now renamed the spacebar kit, thank you.

I’d mentioned in discord that I wanted a piece of pie nov. just so long as my switch stems are ‘wrapped in plastic’ I’ll be good.

I looked into including a pie, but it's tough, but I will try with the city novelties.  Would a log work?

love the theme of this set & i think the custom colors do a good job to convey a "foggy" vibe. i'll be looking forward to seeing updated novelties!

Love the colours and vibe! I just wish that the text colour on the mods were cooler like a gray instead of the ?brown you have rendered. Looking forward to deskmats and potential artisan collabs!

I have an additional question, is it possible to include support for latim keys?
Usually is north and UK, so there aren't many sets for the latim countries on southern EU.

Thus, support for pt would be so outstanding. 
Thank you much and really following up on this one, brings me such good vibes.

Sure, I can look into it and add them as long as it doesn't mess with pricing much.  Thanks for the feedback!

Do you have an example of a set that had good coverage?  I'm working on an international kit now based on feedback, so lmk what would work best and I can try to include it!  Thanks!

Nice set. I’ll get it when it runs.
I hope you redo the 40s kit so it’s icon only mods, just like the base is.

You can have a look at GMK Electric NorDeUK , it as a wide coverage. The only key I see missing is a single key with the «».
Hence this is a very complete international set.

Also KAT space dust had a kit for each and every taste. This is the southern EU one, the SOUTH  α - SIRIUS | Spanish (EU, LA) Portuguese (EU) & Italian

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107942.0

However, this would be a kit for each and every region, which I am unsure it is manageable.

traditionally the group that never shows up to buy what they ask for is the NORDE people

in KAT, there is no penalty as it's shared MOQ, but in GMK you need to sell 150-250 kits for it to get made, and on a kit that traditionally has less than 5% adoption in the best scenarios, that means you need to sell 2000ish base kits (more possible than it once was, but unlikely) for it to get made without vendor assistance, and then they always sit for weeks/months because nobody buys them

they're better than they used to be but it's still largely a waste of effort to include full NORDE, from my analysis

if it were up to me, we'd go back to 2013 ISO kits, which were an ISO enter, a 1.25x shift, and 2 blanks
QFR | MJ2 TKL | "Bulgogiboard" (Keycon 104) | TGR Alice | Mira SE | Revo One | z | Keycult No. 1 | AIS65 | CW80 Proto

A single 1.5u Super key is really no good on its own. Either add the second one, together with a second 1u Alt, or remove it altogether.

I am quite happy this set has received a green-light to move forward.
Despite there is an international kit, I was a little bit disappointed by how limited it was. One good example that has been mentioned was the GMK Electric (who has a wide coverage), out of my curiosity why this set does not replicate that NorDeUK set?

Please see the attachment to the keys missing from this set.

Thank you so much for your time.

Thanks so much for the feedback! The challenge is of course trying to balance coverage with price, and admittedly I don't know other international layouts as well.  So if it's a reasonable cost to add them, it's something I hope I can do.  When I submitted the last round of updates to GMK, I included a question about doing this, so hopefully good news comes back. 

I really appreciate your comment/insight and it helps make this a better set, thank you!

Thanks, that means a lot and I am a huge fan of your sets (just got my Dandy deskmat in the other week and plan to pick up Zen Pond soon!)

Thanks everyone for the kind words.


Also.... just added the 2nd deskmat and final kitting (moved ISO from extensions to nordeuk).  Enjoy!
