I've seen many sets with these colors but this set is by far the best one. Looking forward to group buy!

Please add red accent colors, at lease for ESC and RETURN/ENTER
I have to agree, I see a very attractive deep red colour, but itís not used anywhere. Some novelties please, or replacing some grayscale keys in the base set for Esc / Enter, please?

Looks amazing, can't wait!

Novelties have been updated and I have added red Esc and Enter accents, most likley the color will be either a GMK Stock color or Pantone 200c, I think it will make this set stand out and give a subtle flair.

For some reason it reminds me of a lot of keyset but when I look at the differences   it doesn't anymore

Iím digging that youíve allowed for the red and white accents. Iím curious though, could you add the red accents to the base kit along with the white? Iíve seen plenty of other sets have multiple accent colors in the base, like GMK analog dreams for example. Just a thought.

Very hyped about the two red accent keys. I think moving them to the base kit would please many people. Then people buying novelties are buying for novelties and perhaps not as much for the two accent keys. This would make the base set and the overall group buy even more attractive, which should increase sales

is there any chance of a 40s kit?
what about alt alphas?

if you do end up doing 40s, all r1 novelties should be repeated on other rows

Maybe, so far there is some interest building in a Norde Kit

I just want to say, if you would add a Norde Kit this is going to be the perfect Set for me.

Are there any news on it yet?

Would there be potential for a 1.5u convex spacebar? I've been having a really hard time finding them and I love this set.

Glad to see this set make it to IC! The novelties kit definitely looks better since I first saw the initial drafts on discord  :thumb: Slick renders too.

I have a few suggestions:
- Incorporate the Red accent Enter and Esc into the base kit
- Have novelties for the Red accent Enter and Esc (thermometer and the skull)
- Add another R4 1u dark gray novelty (biohazard or skull), so those who have a left side macro column (XT-layout) can have a non-repeating column (or those who prefer an alternative 1u novelty over the Hg chemical symbol)

I guess cost of the kit will have to come into consideration though with the above alterations, and you'd might have to look at removing either white or the dark gray enter/esc potentially. I know the white is your initial concept accent colour for this set, but the red is just way more appealing/striking.

Going to have to cop a deskmat too.

Please add accent ISO keys. A must IMO for a grey set for ISO users.

Wouldnít mind mx-hhkb support with 2x 1.5u supers (and extra 1u alt)
Also, uk iso.

Thanks!

I'm very set on getting this deskmat!

I do have a recommendation for an alteration to the deskmat design:
On the temperature conversion scale, I think the 0/-273 part should be changed to 0/-273.15, and include a line break that shows that there are missing values.

Something like this (very simple mock-up):


I totally understand if this isn't feasible due to spacing!

Looking forward to November!

Kits look really good, although the base kit is probably going to end up being on the expensive side. If that does happen, you may want to consider moving the accent arrow keys to the spacebars kit.

On an unrelated note, consider changing the R3 1.75u Control key to an icon legend, for visual consistency with the other icon mods (comparison, example).

This is a really big nitpick, but why was the biohazard symbol chosen?
By definition, only biological material such as bacteria or viruses can be a biohazard.

I'm guessing this is delayed? Given the quote times for GMK, I totally understand. Still really looking forward to this set! Hope that it will run one day, even if that means switching manufacturers!
