if possible, make another mod kit so people can use the set on 2 boards, light alphas + mod kit 2 and base. Or switch back and forth

Looks good!

One thing I noticed, and this might just be me, put the purple looks darker on the renders compared to the base kit image. I prefer the bit lighter purples on the base kit layout; however the Pantone more closely resembles the render than the base layout image.

Will look into adding an icon mod kit if there's enough interest, but I definitely prefer icon+text for base kit, thanks for the suggestions!

KLE tends to lighten up all the key colors. The plastic chip I have will look like the renders in regular room lighting, but in brighter lighting it gets a lot more purple. But I agree with you a lighter purple does look better, I'll try to find a Pantone color that more closely resembles the KLE color. Thanks for your feedback!

So glad ISO is in base! Would love to see either the extra couple of caps for UK-ISO (the 2 and 3) or a full on NorDeUk kit!

I also think you should have white alphas by default, and a purple alpha kit.

Initially no but the more I look at it the more I like it.  Damm it I think I'm going to end up with this as well.

Shouldn't that be "Bass kit"? (Ba-dum-bum-tsh!)

The renders look cool but I'm instituting a personal policy against kits without Mac keys ("Super" doesn't cut it). Might be another argument for an "icon kit" if you care.

Good luck with the IC!

It's super weird to me that "Super" and "Code" seem to be the agreed-upon versions of this key when, like, "OS" seems like it'd be the clearest, most accurate legend

Obviously that doesn't get into the fact we almost never get an "Option" key (I'm fine with "Alt" there, moreso than the other key we're talking about)

I like it! reminds me of metro with some brighter colors. Maybe could use some novelties, but I really like Icon+text

I've updated the dark blue-purple to 2695C which is slightly slightly lighter and more purple. Not as light as the KLE images but it feels like a good balance!

There most likely won't be a novelties kit, but I could see one or two being added. And I also really like Icon+text, so that's here to stay for base kit!

Love the dark purple with light alphas. I'm interested for sure. I am kind of wondering what the light set would look like with one simple green accent. In the art, the highlights of the girl's hair got me thinking. Maybe the symbols on the number row could be green? I'm not sure what manufacturing process you're planning on using here (maybe I can't read).

This would be great for a board I was thinking about building...

Would love to see the white alphas in the base kit instead of the dark. That might help differentiate it from GMK Dracula too.
Also, it would be nice to have an inverted mods kit, something like a CMYW kit color matched to the rest of the set.

I really really love the idea of a future funk keyset, two of my favourite hobbies are intersecting!  I'm gonna echo a lot of what was already posted here in that I like the more purple colour of the layout picture a lot more, and icon mods would be really nice for this set too.  Some novelties could be awesome as well, there's lots to take inspiration from as there are a lot of vaporwave/pastel inspired keysets kicking around.  The colours are really giving me a Sailorwave II by MACROSS 82-99 vibe, and I also love the deskmat.  Will be following this for sure!

Yes!! Macross 82-99 artwork was absolutely the inspiration for the colors here. I will be adding an icon mods kit and potentially an alphas kit with hiragana because a lot of people have been asking for that in the IC form (almost 1/4 of responses).

Its cute but I'd stick to one alpha/mod combination or the other, not both. Splits up buyers and makes it harder to achieve the already difficult goal of 250 MoQ

If the icon mod pack was separate, wouldnt everyone who bought it have to buy base anyway?
