Potential for orange on all modifiers in an add-on kit?

Hey, what's the mod-colored R1 \| key in the base kit for? Split backspace is already covered by the alpha-colored one. The most common split backspace setups are \|, `~ and \|, Delete. Mod-colored \| would be useful for a `~, \| setup, but I don't think that's very common at all (at least not enough to warrant including that key).

Would you consider changing one of the ISO alpha keys to avoid having a duplicate \| legend? I've been hearing complaints about these recently. You can either change the R4 key to <>, or the R3 key to #~, based on what you prefer. R4 <> is better objectively speaking (details here), but many people (mostly ISO-UK users) seem to prefer R3 #~.
thank you for coming to my ted talk

This is mostly aesthetic choice to fit the theme with Nakano's colorscheme.

As a non ISO user i was not really triggered by this as the current base kit has a ISO US compat. Having a partial compat with changing one of those keys seems odd. I'd prefer to have an international kit complete instead of this trade-off situation.

Also because i had lot of questions i'm considering adding a second B in a child kit for Alice users.

Yeah, I get that, but you already have a mod-colored R1 `~ for the top right corner key, right? So what's the mod-colored R1 \| for?

With R4 <> it's still full ISO US compat (“terminal style”), just without a duplicate legend, which is why I'm suggesting it as the better option.

At first it was mainly for split backspace use but it's pretty uncommon to have also the pipe mod colored. Fixed in the base kit.

Also i've added a second B in the spacekit for alice users.

Last modification to 40 and space kit for making the best tradeoff for compatibility vs size of kits.

100% in for a base + novelties. Any plans for a deskmat or rama cap?

Any chance of splitting num/iso to save on costs?
Any updates on pricing?

Great set! running in august is probably also a good decision, simply too many great sets for June as of now!

I can't decide it, i'm dependent on all the proxies. The best slot i had is October.

Biip will do the deskmat.

Regarding the Rama cap, i've openned a discussion with them so it's in progress but nothing confirmed yet.
