Please, allow me to introduce Lucky Jade!

I came up with this set design alongside Moon Dust Back in Nov 2018. I absolutely love jade sculptures and carvings. The colors chosen are what I thought best represented the Imperial and White Jade. In China, its considered lucky to have or carry with you. They even buried royal members in suits made of Jade. I wanted to show that with the novelties as they are based on some popular symbols of luck including the Chinese word for luck. This set is a little more personal for me as I've always been in love with Jade since childhood being I was named after it. After I was adopted by my Chinese parents I've also grown even more fond of Chinese culture and want to continue learning from them. I'm hoping to show that appreciation with this set.
Thank you for your time, and please enjoy!

If the KAT GB does well, then I may run it in gmk or sa in the future :)

I really like the addition of the white alphas.

I have the same issue here that I encountered with KAT Atlantis, you both probably based yourselves on the same kit design.
French kit is missing ISO enter and shift.

Also will the international kits have the option for white alphas or will they be stuck on the main ones?

Then why are they included in the North kit? It's weird that they add them in some of the international kits, but not in the other.
If there was some overlap between FR and the (I presume) UK keys in the ISO kit, I could understand it, but none of those 6 keys are used by the French layout.

Any possibility of putting the necessary white keys in the UK ISO set to match the light green ones? I've been meaning to try KAT for a while and this green mod and white alpha colourway is too nice to ignore!

yeah, some people (Rensuya thought the same when I discussed this with him yesterday) tend to see the FR kit as an addon kit to the UK and/or Intl. which I don't agree with. The beauty of KAT (in addition to the profile) is that you can get a **** ton of kits and by doing so you can prevent duplicate keys (that's a least what I tried to do with Oasis).

Hopefully this gets corrected here :)

I went on to say that it was possible that there are better ways to set the kit up. I am not a user of ISO, FR, or INTL. Any changes I make to Atlantis, just expect to mostly be made here as well. I'll be changing the FR kit as soon as I can get to it.

Considering the spherical nature of KAT, would it be feasible squeezing that many characters onto 1 key for the wubi kit?
