Pricing
Base kit: $90 USD
Accent kit: $30 USD
Alphas kits (each): $25 USD
40s Mods kit: $30 USD
40s Accent kit: $30 USD
Numpad: $20 USD
Spacebar: $15 USD
KBD67 Lite V3: $119 USD (will get a render soon will be L9 color and will have custom design on it)


Small tip: If you buy the base, 40s kits, spacebars, accent, and what ever alphas you want you can pretty much cover 2-4 boards, meaning you shouldn’t need to buy 3-4 base kits. All those kits come out to be 165+ 25A < 90B

A= alphas kits assuming you dont buy over 4 alpha kits
B= base kit in your case you said 3-4

So for you, you were either willing to pay 270 or 360 if you only buy base kits plus the cost of the alphas kits, which you can get all 4 alphas can still cover 4 boards and use all the different alphas if you go my route and save 5 dollars because it would at max getting all the alphas cost 265

Changes:

Changes Made:
- extra b added to all the alpha kits kinda pepega on my part
- was threaten by the 40s community so I made them an accent kits and took out 40s coverage from accent kit for normies
- made the space bar kit that much more goated by adding type K support 3u bars
- added the godforsaken F13 to base and accents

Possible upcoming changes:
- Taking 40s out of regular accent kit or atleast staggered
- Kinda close to confirming L9 the odds are in its favor and I do really like it
- thinking about doing two possible things for my EU/UK folks adding support to the Latin alphas since it would only make sense there orrrr... making a small kit I kinda wanted to limit this set to 10 kits after the whole KAM 80s too many kits scenario (I learned a lot of the community doesn't understand kitting and struggle with too many choices)

Old render (not that different but the changes are there)

Note: Currently I am debating with going with CP or L9, so I have order samples, but until those get here I only have renders and GMK color ring. I will ask that you please fill out the IC to help me choose they both are really awesome so no real loss.

Cultural Check, although this set isn’t based or inspired by Korean culture nor does it try to depict it in anyway possible. If there is anything offensive please let me know, I have already made sure to ask around, but we can all miss things.

To speak on norde coverage, currently i am limiting this set to 10 kits
Reasons
- the US vendor will be some what new ( they have sold a product before and have fulfilled GBs, but I rather make it easier than harder)

- I know norde would be possible but the only real important coverage for this set is hangul given its in the name and from my research on localization they dont really have iso other than what is covered.

- ISO doesnt really fit hangul and would be messy and before i hear but you have latin alphas, yes i did include because i knew if i didnt people would complain, kind of picking the the lesser of two evils

- Lastly i give physical coverage

Now if enough EU/ISO lovers come out and request i will take the time and try to make a kit and do the proper research, but until the other thing i have thought of is add the most requested type of ISO to latin alphas (and french ISO has a very very very very far lead relative) so given this. Its now on you

Thank you for your time

didn't you also need to buy 2 kits for Red alert?

Edit: plus the base kit already has the hangul mods so having the red numrow and f row will be a little much imo

Set looks great. Just wanted to mention that in Korea (and some other countries too I believe), writing someone’s name in red means they have passed away or that you wish them harm, so many ppl avoid writing in red. Not sure how that would translate to keycap legends though.

I quickly searched "Korean Writing" and "Hangul" in google images and a handful of them used red font color (so I assume it's not a big deal when its random words or just the individual characters). I believe the superstition only applies to names, not really sure about letters or the individual characters.

Can confirm for Chinese culture
Also... I too am Chinese (half) and I'm pretty sure this superstition is only for names.

ok I already have some changes to make so f13 will be added
Some other changes will be 40s kitting will get 1.5u backspace for q row, an extra 1u shift, and 2x 3u spacebars
For the space bar kit 2x3u spacebars

I will try to do more research regarding this and ask around to gather some opinions. Thank you both for bringing it to my attention!

Yeah, it's only names that we avoid writing in red.

Set looks clean but the naming is really random.

IM a sucker for red sets and this is way too clean to pass up. Cleaner than GMK red alert ngl

Just saying GMK Red alert was going after the look of the OG Red alert, which is not something this replicates. Not a fair comparison TBH.

I am totally boring so I do like the plain base but agree this is more interesting.

mm - doesn't cut it for me, extra alphas are interesting but every other kit feels kinda bloated and the set itself looks too similar to ra
Possibly so that people can pick up the 40s kit and extra alphas and skip the base? The kits do feel bloated -- good call.
Big fan of the Extra Alpha kit - this is the star of the show. Never seen one with a Tab before ... :|

------------------------------------------------------------------------
This does looks incredibly similar to / inspired by Red Alert. The kitting here needs some work - the accent kit here is big.

Possibly consider:
• Moving the windowed Esc keys to 1 accent kit and with the rest of the non red keys
• Have all of the red keys included in a second kit. The Esc key in the base will have the red colorway covered
• There are a total of 9 Esc keys in your kitting. Most i've ever seen in any IC - consider cutting some?
• Consider removing "- A simple colorway set" from your IC. Racing stripes are fancy.

If the Alphas kit was around 18$ it would be an easy pickup for me.

There’s a fine line between simple and boring and this definitely falls into the simple but tasteful category. I don’t know how I feel about the child kits but I without judgement until you get quotes for them because epbt child kits are always surprising cheap imo

yes im aware that the gmk run was replicating the original red alert. But with the accents kit, you can't deny that it's quite similar.
Pretty sure red alert used P3 as well so I think its a fair comparison. I dont hate any of these sets if thats what it looked like lol
I literally joined gmk red alert (might even buy some extras lmao), and now I'm probably going to buy this one too. that red numrow just too nice :P

Lots of sets with "extra alpha/alt alpha" kits have extra tabs, its generally for filling up 2 boards when bought along side the base kit, since most base kits come with 2-3 enters, 2 caplocks, 2-3 esc keys, a handful of shift keys, and support for standard and tsangan bottom row.

ePBT is relatively cheap compared to gmk so I wouldn't really be worried about cost when a kit is a little "bloated" (edit: epbt less but better had a really big novelty kit and it was only about $35). The main thing that makes the accent kit big is that both the accents for the 40s and "standard" kits are in it (its got 16 enter keys lol). I do agree with moving some of the accent keys around, I suggest moving the standard sized grey accent keys to the base, and separating the 40s accent to another kit or make it a part of the 40s kit.

Agree. Norde kits are  popular for epbt sets because of no moq. They do boost sales. I got example only buy in if they are available

To speak on norde coverage, currently i am limiting this set to 10 kits
Reasons
- the US vendor will be some what new ( they have sold a product before and have fulfilled GBs, but I rather make it easier than harder)

- I know norde would be possible but the only real important coverage for this set is hangul given its in the name and from my research on localization they dont really have iso other than what is covered.

- ISO doesnt really fit hangul and would be messy and before i hear but you have latin alphas, yes i did include because i knew if i didnt people would complain, kind of picking the the lesser of two evils

- Lastly i give physical coverage

Now if enough EU/ISO lovers come out and request i will take the time and try to make a kit and do the proper research, but until the other thing i have thought of is add the most requested type of ISO to latin alphas (and french ISO has a very very very very far lead relative) so given this. Its now on you

Thank you for your time
Swishy

Edit: another point people keep saying i have too many kits, which in my opinion means no need to add more.

Please allow us minorities to «struggle» with localized kits. For some it's the necessary, and sufficient here, condition to enter the GB and buy a bunch of kits.

I like the red alpha in 40's accent kit, but I wish the red alpha can be included in the alternative alpha kit.

set looks great.  Can you add R4 PgDn and R4 End in the numpad kit to support 1800 layouts?

it maybe worth while to add in F5-F8 in the extra alphas kits if the intention is to use them with mods from other sets.

I would appreciate UK ISO added to the base kit, failing that a separate kit would also work.  The colourway of your set is beautiful and I would really like to be able to use it on a daily driver ISO board.

   Currently doesnt seem to be the case. I don’t see many people asking for iso out of the majority. There are about 10 and within that 10, 3 different iso systems requested. What I am currently thinking of doing is running an extension run later, because as of right now, to cover for the main color way it wouldn’t be so hard, but then I would have to make sure to cover for all different colors for alphas minus mono hangul. Which I was thinking about doing these past two nights, but there are 3 alpha variations and about 42 keys (using yorkchan’s approach) which is 126 keys. I am not opposed to doing that route, but it would just be complicated given the limits I really want to follow.
   Another issue is that I am afraid for falling for the give a mouse a cookie effect where I give you one thing and then another group comes and complains. Covering something like 40s was easy enough to do because I could go to one place and get all the help I needed from a larger portion of their community, but with ISO there is no real ISO server(if there is please send me an invite and i will talk it out there) where I can go to discuss the best way to approach my problem. Lastly, given that Hangul layout don’t really use ISO, I don’t think its right to brute force something that isn’t common. It may make sense to you but I chose Hangul specifically for it clean aesthetic when match with Latin characters. But I also realized there has to be some give and take with designing and using something, but just because you want something doesn’t mean that it has to cover your layout you have to be willing to give and take as well.

not at all interesting to have a possible future extension run. it's not enough for me to buy in today if I just might get what I need later. especially with current lead times.
in terms of iso/norde support, there are multiple precious kits from epbt that all have had input from the community and that has satisfied the majority of people.

if you feel you have too many kits, I would  euthanize the 40s accent kit in favor for norde. I'm a user of both but that would be my order of priority.

Come back to check this thread. With so many Alpha kits, it would be great if we could have all mod kit. So we don't have to buy 3-4 base kits if we want to use different alpha.

not a bad idea but I dont wanna do that then basically lie to the ISO people although I believe that kit would be more worth it. But small tip if you buy the base, 40s kits, spacebars, accent, and what ever alphas you want you can pretty much cover 2-3 boards, meaning you should need to buy 3-4 base kits. All those kits come out to be 165+ 25A < 90B
A= alphas kits assuming you dont buy over 4 alpha kits
B= base kit in your case you said 3-4
So for you, you were either willing to pay 270 or 360 plus the cost of the alphas kits, which you can get all 4 alphas can still cover 4 boards and use all the different alphas if you go my route and save 5 dollars because it would at max getting all the alphas cost 265
