Would love UK ISO support to return somewhere, whether it's base or an add-on kit etc.

Whilst it's not perfect (and never really can be) the new kitting direction here has changed me from a 'no' to a yes'. This went from all-time awful to actually decent and it's because you listened to the community - thank you.

I appreciate the direction that the kitting has gone through. The extension kit still feels a bit weird. Moving 2.25u shift to move into base for 660 support would be good so you aren't forced to get the kit just for that. Adding icon-only kit would be good since the colors pop better than with icon+text. Might even make sense to add icon-only into extension.

So let me understand this correctly, you removed UK ISO from the base to save money, you decided not to have a separate UK ISO kit and in addition for some reason you removed the UK ISO keys from the international kit?

That just does not make any sense, if you are going to offer an international kit then at the very least it should cover Norde/UK.  Am I missing something?

p.s.  I love the extension kit and the set in total but without any UK ISO in any form I might have to bow out.

I think the new kitting is a massive improvement but IMO the extensions kit is a bit of a waste and ought to be merged with 40s or the base kit, with the windowed keys being moved to accents or novelties. It's such a small kit with a lot of overlap on other layouts that it doesn't make much sense as is.

I've already lost my UK ISO. I'm going to end up losing my 1.5u Supers too at this rate :(

I've seen UK ISO in the extension kit before (additions in Janglad kitting) but the ISO accent key would have to move to base in that case.
I've also seen keys like F13 and mod pipe in the extension kit too.

Honestly, it depends on if you want a cheaper compact base kit or a full-featured bit more expensive one… I assume it also depends on MOQ.


Who would have thought kitting would be so much "fun"! I wish there was a standard kitting introduced but I think it simply isn't possible with the way GMK sets out MOQ for kits that upsets 10% of users somewhere.

The new international kit is missing a couple things. I believe I reached out to you on Discord with a guide to making that kit less expensive, but I think you missed some important details.

You have two broad options here:

1) Switch from Terminal ISO to UK ISO in base.
2) Add the necessary keys for UK back to the international kit.

Personally I think #1 makes the most sense. It will require a net increase of 4 alpha keys in base (2 removed, 6 added). I’d be happy to walk through the other adjustments needed, whichever path you choose.

I disagree. I like the current NorDe with the sublegends.
But the current NorDe is missing the tertiary "2" on the "2"-cap. I dont want 3 with tertiary 3 and 2 without tertiary 2. Keep the sublegends but make it consistent.

I would say that I'm tempted to buy it now. Tks for having taken feedback to improve the kitting.
About the novelties, I think the community has seen a lot of big and flashy novelty kits from other sets so they want something similar here, this is also a R2 so it's understandable.

Yeah same, but I guess if more people wanted hangul to be a child kit then it makes more sense for OP to do that. I'm out too unfortunately, good luck with sale though!

IKR. With the latest changes I'm pretty happy again (as intl kit has been expanded).

I think I was the only one happy with the original kitting for the IC perhaps.
The extension kit for GMK sets generally always makes me happy as I get unix bottom row. Perhaps this will be the norm for base kits to be low-ish priced for GMK.

While the changes I wanted to see weren't really implemented (guess they weren't popular enough), I agree with others in that the kitting has massively improved from where it started.

Although the extension kit is here to stay (blegh), I think spinning it to include icon mods was a good move; a fair number of people were vocal about wanting icon-only. I personally don't care much for it, but it was a good compromise.

Thanks for taking feedback into consideration, and looking forward to the GB.

The base price is actually lower than most current base kit with the same kitting. I think you're just not happy because of no hangul base.

I am very confused with the kitting pictures  :(

there seems to be 4 kinds of base kit:
BASE KIT, STANDARD BASE, (another)BASE KIT, HANGUL BASE

and 2 kinds Spacebars kit:
both named SPACEBAR KIT, but one with a 1.25u and one without

will these all be active options? which one(s) will be actually in the GB?
sorry if it's repeated question, but if it's not, someone pls enlighten me, thanks.

You're looking at the historical kitting. What's shown right now (not under "More") is what the finalized kitting is.
