You’ve got spacebars in the accent, extension, and forties kit.

Edit: perhaps that actually warrants splitting them out on their own? I haven’t kept up with GMK kitting so much but that would be typical for SP kitting.

There are plenty of ways to kit without putting alpha colored bars in kits that will be $40+. I don't need any of the other keys in the Extension or 40's kits besides the two bars. There is also not enough shifts in the base to make a makeshift Alice layout using shifts as spacebars.

Yeah, I guess I was initially just pointing out that they’re available in a couple kits, but now seeing that there’s a lot of redundancy there and hence the edit.

Would it be outrageous to put the bars and accent bars in a standalone kit and remove the bars from the other kits?

What thread am I supposed to be looking at ._.

Anyhow, consider dropping off center space and adding alpha coloured 3-1-3 bars for the “accents” kit.  Some form of iso in base would be cool. Excited to see an r2 tho  :thumb:

Personally, I think the kitting here makes a lot of sense. ISO users may see some better pricing because they’re grouped with the extension kit (in an ideal world at least).

Base kit covers a decent chunk of boards but perhaps with, I think just one more shift(?) could cover Alice in a less ideal way.

An actual GH IC thread? Nice.

Really appreciate the re-introduction of accent keys in 40s kit. Would it be possible to add a 1.5u shift in 40s kit as well? Otherwise, I'd say it's looking real good.
EDIT: No, wait. Why is it only 1.75u enter? 1.5u enter + accent would be great.
EDIT 2: As Steve said below (and upon closer inspection), that 1.75u mod-colored enter appears to be mislabeled. Would still appreciate 1.5u enter accent and 1.5u shift.

I'm digging the icon + text, although I didn't mind just icons--as long as it's consistent throughout the kits.

Ambivalent about the extensions kit. A lot of other sets usually have those caps in the base kit, don't they? I'd only get it for the shift keys, which... idk if I want to pay for a whole kit just for shift keys. But if base kit pricing works out to be lower, then fair's fair I guess.

I kinda like the abundance of mini bars; can never have too many.

I think the 1.75 mod colored enter in the 40s kit is meant to be labeled 1.5 maybe? Guessing since the 1.75 backspace is in there and you have a 1.75 accented enter already.

not either of the OPs, but i also think the extension kit can be trimmed a bit (and kitting as a whole), so i just quoted dis. here we go:

Right of the bat, i think that iso can be put in base. while not a huge chunk of buyers, it will help eu sales/places that use iso sales (so pretty much everywhere). No one is gonna want to buy a 110 base kit (110 is optimistic with the state that gmk is in rn) and a 50 dollar extension kit for 4 keys (the 4 needed for simple iso).

Second, there should either be an extra 2.25u shift or alice bars in base for the b to actually do anything. Currently, the base kit can only support one alice layout physically (the 2u, 2.75u bars one). Or the b can be put in extensions or with spacebars, where it belongs *cough cough, not based at all*

F13 can also be added to base, once again, no one should be paying 50 bucks for a single key.

There is no numpad 5 homing key anywhere in the set, please add this either to base or extention

In conclusion, clumping everything into one kit actually has more cons than pros. People who want iso, alice, f13, and 660 will have to pay 50 dollars (just and estimate, but i already know this kit is gonna be a higher price looking at projects previous sets) for only a few keys. This will ultimately cause less people to buy the extension than if it was smaller or more optimized. While this is a nice set in terms of colors and design, the kitting is just a lose lose situation.

this is all just my opinion, we can agree to disagree.

edit: taking a quick look at GMK Astral Light, the base kit actually had one less key and was 130, while the extension (only slightly bigger than the one seen here) is 65. Just for price comparison.

Whether we agree or disagree, this is how you provide good actionable feedback!

I do agree with several of your points though. Especially the “B”. Kinda weird in the base kit when it adds no additional support in the base kit alone.

I was going to buy extension kit as I usually need 2x 1.5u Super keys… I can live with UK ISO being there as I'd be asking for that too usually.

All good for me as far as I can see.

The way GMK prices things is kind of scuffed. I'm not going to comment on where the B should go because of the current kitting, but I do want to say this:

Even if the Base kit was $100, a price that only Honor achieved IIRC, there's no way the Extension kit would be anything below $40. So if you want ISO, 660 compatibility, two 1u spacebars that don't exist on any non-ortho layout, or a simple F13 legend to avoid duplicates, then you have to shell out $140 for keys which commonly come in $125 Base kits.

also 40s kit has half assed van support lol

Somehow I'm fine with extra B in base kit as I have CP short Spacebars from other sets (Olivia / Ursa) that I can use as accent Alice bars here with just base kit purchase. Please do not remove the extra B from base kit, but consider adding additional 2.25u shift or alpha color short bars to base kit!

Also no renders. How does the set look like with novelties? How does it look with mod kit? How does a board look on new deskmats? Its up to you to imagine. You are trying to sell a set without even showing what that looks like. Astral suffered from this and now this. You should setup a gofundme for basic renders.

Base kit covers a decent chunk of boards but perhaps with, I think just one more shift(?) could cover Alice in a less ideal way.

Yup! We wanted to be more inclusive for UK-ISO users by backing them up with other keys for extended support. An international kit has been considered, but opted against it for low attachment rates.

Please consider not locking Alice bars in the extension kit.

IMO, makeshift spacebars is not ideal. Argument for 660 support makes sense but why would you want mod-colored shifts as spacebars when convex alpha colored split spacebars are available?

We'll get these up for you soon bb. We wanted to get feedback on the changes to the kitting <3

can we have two base kits so we don't need to buy base + hangul?
I have also considered this, but I know a lot of folks from Round 1 missed out on Hangul Child kit. Also, if a user wanted both Latin and Hangul compatibility, they would have to purchase 2 base kits. Double base kits is a great idea for Round 3 :)

This is great feedback. I am going to play around with moving some keys around today at the office.
Here are some thoughts:
- Move terminal ISO to base / Remove UK-ISO from Extension Kit
- Move accent arrows to base / drop the Accent Kit
- Add a spacebar kit (alice/split support) / remove split bars from Extension Kit

Keep the feedback coming!

I suggest trying to move as many Extension keys to Base as possible and removing accent arrows from spacebars. The price of the bars kit is going to be completely dredged with three colours and the addition of doubleshot keys.

I think F13 in extension kit is appropriate. Moving to base would make more sense as we see more boards support this key.

As a vendor, having less SKUs = better. We're trying to balance price and compatibility to keep everyone happy as possible :) I will look into this.

I can’t seem to fill in the IC Google form.

Thumbs up for the R5 kit. Would definitively get it.

I prefer icon only mods over icon+text, especially with the hangul sublegends.

Please consider not locking Alice bars in the extension kit.

This, and also please put F13 in the Base Kit

What the hell is wrong with this website? You can't delete threads, only "lock" them? That is beyond stupid.
Get it together GH.

40s kit looks great now! Minus that mislabeled 1.5u enter that Steve Laroo pointed out.

Mod kit pricing is always challenging. Mod kits that include numpad mods (I really like them, but I get your point if you don’t numpad) usually end up over 100$ at MOQ 100 and still ~95 at MOQ 150.

The decision to not run Hangul base leaves you another option: change the mod kit to a base kit w mod colored alphas, ie the inverse. Price at 250 MOQ is still…140? That isn’t a huge base kit. Get 500 MOQ and it’s obviously notably cheaper. This set is a monster and you know there’s interest. You leverage the community’s tendency to buy heavily into base kits, the pricing for the mods only crowd changed by about…half what that extension kit will cost? The r1 users who loved the colors get something new to buy.

What thread am I supposed to be looking at ._.

Anyhow, consider dropping off center space and adding alpha coloured 3-1-3 bars for the “accents” kit.  Some form of iso in base would be cool. Excited to see an r2 tho  :thumb:

I agree. I dont wanna pay 40$+ just to use my preferred base layout
