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

So I guess it's a Treeleaf special
May display immature behavior
May talk in third person
Does not understand simple things (Treeleaf moment)

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

What about R1 red skull? ;-)

feelin these novelties changes, just wish we could see that r1 skull in white instead of gray! i think adding the red accents here is also a nice compromise

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?

Nicely done! I'm all for the red accents for the cool Honeywell look!

Also, I'm pretty sure the Corne is by foostan, not Keyhive :p

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.
