Different from MW-Retro Lights, the inspiration of Retro Dark Lights is Mac OS Dark mode.
The novelties comes from the window buttons in macOS.

Definitely in. Love PBTfans stuff and I'm sucker for dark sets. Spacebar set seems to have some redundant keys though.

For proper Mac compat on the RGBY kits you need to:
  • Make the Command/Cmd keys yellow, or
  • Add yellow Option/Alt keys

As it is now you'd be using Red Command with Red Alt.

Alternatively: just remove the Command keys from those kits, one can just use Super instead of Command. Same for the base kit. R3 Command is not a thing.

Not sure about the Green Fn keys. The 1u being next to the Shift, fine. But the 1.25u Fn doesn't make much sense to be Green. Either remove or use a different color.

I think this is a pretty clean set, love the subtle hint of colors here and there in the kits, but imo there should be another blue B key to use with Alice boards imo, spacebar kit having 2 3u keys is interesting, but overall I really like the set and GLWIC!

I will echo guill3m, need yellow alt/option keys to compliment the red command keys. I'm good with the green fn though.
I wish PBTfans had stepped control R3 mould though.
