So any idea when this is going to make progress? This a really good set.

Yes, currently slotted for 2nd half of 2020.  ;)

Sweet!! This is the GMK highlight of the 2nd half of 2020 for me 🙌

This set looks great, the only thing I would really love to have changed, is if the ESC Novelty would alsow be available with dark brown as its main colour

Haha that's a great idea! I'm not sure how I would get that done though. Not sure her face would translate well  ;D

Hey everyone! I'm looking at the kits again for sloth and based on the feedback in the IC form, I'm considering cutting the 40s kit. I've added split spacebars to the spacebars kit and added the extra B to the base kit. Please let me know what you guys think! If you're a 40% user, please voice your opinions so I can know if there's enough demand for it. Thanks!

Base kit mostly looks good, but I'd replace the R3 #~, R4 \| ISO keys (partial and inconsistent ISO-UK coverage) with R3 \|, R4 <>, which are better for neutral ISO support (and also cover ISO-US fully). I also suggest changing the stepped Caps↲Lock legend to just Caps, since otherwise it's the only two-line legend in the set.

I would move the extra B to the spacebars kit. The reason being that most people who want to outfit their ergo board with proper keys/legends are probably going to end up buying the spacebars kit anyway. So, to me at least, the extra B and 2u/2.25u/2.75u spacebars kind of naturally go together.

Speaking of the spacebars kit, feel free to remove the 1.75u space since only about three 40% designs out there use it in total (and one of them actually requires two 1.75u's, so a single key doesn't do much).

Thanks for the feedback! I'll take out the 1.75u space. Since the Alice layout is getting more and more popular, is there are reason not to include the extra B key?

You're welcome. Since it's just one key, it's your call. But since you'll be removing a key from the spacebars kit, effectively freeing up a spot, and also because of the reasons I gave above, I think it makes more sense to move the extra B to the spacebars kit.

I edited my post with a suggestion for the stepped Caps Lock legend in the meantime; check that out as well.

Came here to say this.

I have no issue changing the ISO. It doesn't really affect me so I'll make this last change to it to include terminal style.

If you'ree going to cut 40's, at least consider adding ortho support in base (4 keys) or adding ortho/staggered 40's support (6 keys).

Is it possible to include ortho support without using the Read/data/out/etc keys? If so, let me know and I can add those.

The smiling sloth from the deskmat is already one of the novelties. There might be too many if it's an enter rama key as well. Personally I haven't talked to that many people who like those rama enter key so I don't really have plans to include one.

I like the walking sloth more, yes the smiling sloth would be too many if use in rama key. The long(?) arms are also essential to me so if the rama key could be longer then that would be perfect. Btw would it be strange to use brown key with grey infill for the rama?

I tried that and it does look a little strange. There's not quite enough contrast between the brown and the mod gray.

Few updates after taking in all the feedback recently -
  • ISO - I'll stick to ANSI PC ISO. I'd like to reduce as much costs so that people can purchase base + novelties without paying too much
  • Novelties - I've added some new novelties since this is a large part of the set. New faces and some novelty arrows in the accent color
  • Renders - I've requested renders of the updated kits. These will be final unless there's an essential key that was missed
  • RAMA artisan - I've decided to do that brown cap with cream sloth. A mockup has been made and it looks great!
  • CAN Vendor - not sure about this one. I'm going to ask other vendors for advice
  • 40s - 40s kit will be included. It's roughly ~25% of the IC and I think it might be popular enough to meet MOQ with some extras. I've included the accent split bars there and put alpha split bars in the spacebars kit and moved the 'B' over

How about Caps instead of Caps↲Lock for the stepped key? It would match Scroll and Num better.

I actually don't mind Caps Lock. Is there a set that has just Caps that you can show me? I'm sure there are but I can't think of one at the moment.

Are you saying there should be two spacebar kits? One alpha colored and one accent colored? I'm afraid it might be tougher to hit MOQ for both of them if I were to split them.

Looking at past sets, big portion of them had both colours of the bars in the 40s kit or in the spacebar kit. For example, people who want accent spacebars for Alice-like boards have to buy both kits anyway.
With 40s kit sales being around 10% of the base most of the time, I would say that it's save to assume, that it would hit moq with both colours included.

As for the separate accent spacebar kit, I guess Naut 2's spacebar kits has been stuck in mind for a while, sorry.

I guess the best way to just remove accented split spacebars all together. I don't think I can kit similar to Naut 2 since it's a much more established set.
