Would you consider adding two 1.5u Code and two 1u Alt keys to the base for tsangan compat for mac users. similar to that of GMK minimal?

Double that, alt where super/cmd should be offends my perfectionism :D

I second this. It’s great for Mac users. Also, wouldn’t mind seeing some turquoise/light blue thrown in. Maybe esc/enter accents or in the mod legends? Idk. “Galaxy” color schemes tend to include turquoise in with the purples and navy, and I’ve always loved it.

Legend has it that if you combine Astral Light and Dark you get Taro.

Jokes aside, this looks nice.

I would personally love to see a Icon Only child kit. Also, I feel that the 1.5u Backspace key looks better as an icon only key or as Delete

Also, if you're only going to run one, I would personally go with dark.

Hi, I have a few kitting suggestions:
  • If you're using “Scroll” and “Num” legends, I suggest using “Caps” instead of “Caps↲Lock” for the stepped caps legend. This will help achieve a uniform, one-line look across the set.
  • Change the “Menu” legend to “Fn”. The fact is that 1.25u Fn is a very commonly used key, and whilst “Fn” can fulfill the role of both Fn and Menu, the same isn't really true for “Menu”.
  • Add R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn keys to help cover some popular 65%/75% right column options.
  • Consider using System or Super instead of Code. Here's why.
  • Consider dropping the 2u Shift and adding a barred numpad 5 instead.

I strongly agree with the first three suggestions here.

For me, Super > Code >> System, though I usually just go for icon mods if they're available.

In terms of 2U shift vs. the extra num key I think preferences will vary. Among my customs none even have a num pad but I also think 2U shift is a layout smell. I built 2U once which taught me it's better to overload "? / Rshift" or just going 65%.

Another key you might want to consider dropping is the off-centered stem 6u spacebar. I have 4 boards with 6u spacebars, and on all of them I'm using centered stem keys. Nowadays, if a PCB supports 6u, it'll either support both variants or just centered stem; therefore, I don't think having both in the kit is really necessary.

Initially I was thinking of going for Deep Navy since I like dark blues, and while I was going to get it I decided not to since it seemed almost borderline white on black. I love the coloring of this set (and the Astral set). This one has nice dark blues but also doesn't feel harshly dark, and the light Astral is a nice pastel. I would go for both sets honestly. It would be cool, and I'm not sure how this would be achieved persay, if the two sets could combine into a third set, since they're so closely related.

I don't like this set as much as the light version simply because there have been a lot of dark purple sets as of late (GMK Black Lotus, Nightshade, Rouge, even Taro which has the dark alphas as an option. I get that this IC came out a long long time ago before those sets, but looking at the current landscape). I personally find some of those sets to fulfill my need for dark purple. I do really love the light version however, because it fills a bigger void with its unique colors.

I’d be in for this if it’s still alive and I haven’t spent too much money on other sets when it runs. I’m hoping to pick up an NK65 entry edition, and this will look killer with the purple polycarbonate case.
