hi 陳浩南
哈囉!

If I am right, your kit renders are .png with transparent background, I would recommend to change that to a specific background as the outlines of the keys look very rough at the edges and bad masked out.
 The whole set looks good and GLWIC!

Thanks! Your set looks awesome, too!
I used light mode on geekhack, maybe that's why I don't see the rough edges and bad-looking mask outs.

I really like the idea of the novelties basically being an accent mod kit that can be used with other GMK sets. The legends are WS1 right?

+1 minimal / accessible set lots of flexibility. Great IC!

Do not worry sir, you are not alone in Light mode use. I too, did not see anything.

honestly, not really interested in the actual set, not really colorful enough for me, but the relegendable would be rather useful so depending on the price i will likely get one or a few set of them and being black and gray should work with pretty much any colors. nice work :)

Many thanks. Can you please do a color comparison of just Foundation next to Ursa and then Sloth? The rest are somewhat red herrings and distract from the useful parts of the comparison imo. From my perspective, even if this is super close to those sets (or others) I don't think it's problematic per se given you're using existing stock colors - but it's still interesting/relevant especially for people who might already have those other sets.

Sure can. Here's the comparison of just Foundation, Ursa and Sloth:

Just found out yesterday that a fan from this forum just posted the real GMK Ursa photo compared to GMK Foundation:

i kinda feel like calling either "international" is rather misleading, as there are more than 4 layout in the world...

Wonderful tones all around, this has been a favourite of mine in terms of neutral brown/cream sets- doing everything right.

Will definitely consider naming it just Norde or NordeUK kit instead of "International kit".

If I was nitpicking this set I would say the 1.25u shift looks a bit cramped, but other than that I think this is an amazing set.

Do you mean the kerning of the legend? I think that's pretty much following how GMK/Cherry legend standards should be.

Looking clean, is it possible to add mod-colored tilde and backslash into the base kit please?

Currently under evaluation. I can't promise anything, though.

Thanks for the update - Collaborations look fantastic. There are so many wild sets out there but this one is a sweet spot for me. After revisiting this IC the colorway and novelties are very accessible. Super duper solid way to spend your GMK monies.

... Oh you updated the Novelties - heck yes!!! Easy Base + 2x Novelties for me.

As the colours are from GMK, the production will be somewhat shorter? (I'm asking as a complete ignorant on the process)

That’s a good question. To me, hard to know. Classic Blue was stock colors and just 2 of em and was in my hands 10.5 months from Gb close. This uses 7? though, and handarbeit R1 (10 stock colors) was slower than normal at the time because of some dye holdup for a subset of them. It wouldn’t shock me if it was 11 months…or 18.

If you just don’t believe the first 2-3 estimates GMK provides you’ll be as seasoned as the rest of us:)

Which other GMK stock colors in particular? I can manage to take a pic side by side under daylight (outdoors).

The second photo on GMK/Uniqey's website: https://uniqey.net/en/gmk-color-ring shows the color of BV just about right (despite of the blurriness of the row where BV sits)

Can't find where my daughter hid the CR and CC keycaps that I have lying around on my desk, but here's BV, N9 and an Ace that's printed in black, like CR.





Hope this helps, sorry for the potato pic and the watermark  :)
