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.

English (US), terminal style, seems to be the best all-around choice.

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.
