I believe I misread ... is there going to be a 40s/ortho kit?

No plans for 40's or Ortho this time around.

I love the way this set looks. I want it for my dz60 but I need a 1u rshift. Is it too late to add it to the set?

You should consider adding F13 and a second B to either the Base kit or the sidewalk kit! Those are becoming more popular in the community!

There's literally nothing on top, so might be WKL 8X

Hello! I absolutely love this set. I've been a lurker for like 2 years now. Just finally made a geekhack account, as the components for my first build are on the way to me now. I'm excited! But, I built it around this set thinking it was going live today. When can we expect it to go live? I know I won't see the caps in hand for a long time, and I've got some temporary ones until then. I just want to order it ASAP so that weight is off my chest, haha. I'm super excited regardless!

Very glad to hear you like it! Means a lot to me that you want this so bad. I haven't gotten an official date from my vendors yet but we discussed the second week of September as our goal and that has not changed. CandyKeys will be getting back to me next week and we will be able to show off the cables and artisans then. I will post an update on this thread as soon as we got those product details and there will be another update on this thread and my Discord when the exact GB date is announced. I apologize if the anticipation is a lot, (trust me it's a lot for me too haha) but it's just around the corner and I am very excited to get this out to you guys.

I want to thank everyone else again for following this project and supporting my design. You all have had so many positive and constructive things to say and I feel very lucky to have this opportunity and experience.

I will be going all on this set. And I mean all in. Everything. My wallet is ready. like Issac walking up the mountain with Abraham. Or Ishmael if your Muslim.

The real question is.. is my wife ready?

Awesome! I'm just glad that it is in the works. Upon scrolling through looking for the look that I want in my first full build, this set kept standing out to me. So after a few times, I checked out the thread here and after reading the story behind it I am even more into it! I, like most people, thoroughly enjoy the emotions that I feel on a rainy day. The way you put the feelings into words was awesome, too! Can't wait to be the first one to get in on these :) Take care man, I'll be checking back here for sure!

are the kits final?

mainly concerned about:
- second b
- "Scroll Lock" vs "Scroll"

If they are final, but the runner still wants to include second B, the R3 1u \| key can be changed to R4 1u B without losing anything and without affecting quotes or pricing, it just will need to be communicated to GMK. See here and here.

As for Scroll↲Lock vs Scroll, this set does it the “OG way”, with two-line legends for Scroll Lock, Num Lock and stepped Caps Lock. I agree with you that it would look cleaner with single-line legends, though, so if the runner wants to, they can change R4 1u Scroll↲Lock, Num↲Lock and stepped R3 1.75u Caps↲Lock (both with and without the LED window) to Scroll, Num and Caps, respectively. Again, this just needs to be communicated to GMK when confirming the final kits for production.

My bad. Now I did.

The inconsistency can be fixed either way.

currently getting new renders that will include second B in the spacebars kit, F13 in the base kit, changing 'scroll lock' to just 'scroll' in the base kit, and changing 'caps lock' to just 'caps' for the stepped versions only.

We will be asking for quotes tonight so after these changes, everything should be final.

If everything else is one line, might look odd to leave num lock two lines.

Getting new renders of the changes made up now. Renderman said they should be done next week. Should be getting a quote from GMK near the 8th of this month. We are still on track for a September GB but just wrapping up some things with everyone to make sure it all works out. Thank you all for your patience and continued support!

As for the changes being made, agian, F13 and a second B will be added. We are also making the single line legends for numlock, stepped caps lock, scroll lock, ect. Thank you for this feedback as I think this is a great change that will fit the set very well.

renderman will be done with the updated changes to the kits soon. He said he was working on them tomorrow so we may have them as soon as tomorrow. We are still on track for September 29th GB date. Should be getting the prices back soon as well. Haven't heard about the cables and artisans yet from CandyKeys. I will check in on them to see if there is an update.

Thanks SO MUCH for following this for so long and all of your support. It has been such a pleasure being able to give back to the community!

Quick update. So... some of you were right lol. 3 of the novelties didn't meet GMK standards. (I didnt have my scaling set correctly). So I am getting them changed. There wont be a big difference for all but one of them which is changed completely. This will not effect quoting or GB time. But there will be a last minute render thrown up at some point.

This set is so clean and pretty. I really love the hangul kit, but kind of sad that I have to pick up the base kit also, resulting in a waste of latin alphas. Is there any chance that we could get a hangul base kit, similar to GMK Yuru? I understand that its already close to GB date and it will be hard to implement, but I think some others would appreciate it also.

Alternatively, anyone got ideas on how to utilise an extra set of alphas?
