This is amazing. Not enough white sets out there. Also
WS2 generally matches PCB white much better than WS1 so cant wait for this.

Interested! I'd be interested in some kit with split spacebar support, as others might be as well with all the Alice layout boards recently.

Yes and a proper 2nd b while we’re at it. Maybe just add those 3 extra keys to the base kit and move iso to numpad? I bet we have more Alice users than we do iso.

This looks awesome!

I'd like it if more ISO compatability sets would include the UK @ key, maybe I'm unfairly merging two sets for my own benefit but it's pretty much the only key missing fron the standard ISO set so very rarely gets added in alone.

This is the reason I’m excited for this

WS2 matches your average pcb white way better than WS1. Make sure to add plaid/ortho coverage somehow.

This was just him being polite. There is no reason not to be friendly and polite. If he was told no he still could have run it since it stock colors.

I think WS2 would be a better match for Rama Milk (e-white) keyboards. I hope this comes to fruition!

Now we'll need to distinguish BoW1 and BoW2 (not that it'd be a bad thing!).

I could make a mix and match with BoW1 alphas and BoW2 mods, for example.

(also, ISO alphas, blah blah blah, all y'all know what I'll be yapping about)

rip minimal r2

in all seriousness though, icon + text mods is a must for me. with stock colors and a low, OG minimal-like price, I could see this becoming very popular. gl! :wink:

Depends on MOQ and kit design. Novelkeys gets a base kit every month often custom colors at 115 or 120$. GMK Dark cut the numpad out and the base is still 120 bc of low MOQ.

This photo needs to be color balanced. It's misleading. Because my GMK Minimal WS1 does not look yellow like that at all. If anything, it looks like clean, plain white paper. Not a yellow, tan, sun-washed white.

True photo is to demonstrate how ws2 matches pcb whites since it has more blue in it.

There's better photos out there, but here's both next to each other, with other colors that are probably in sets that you have, in a photo that doesn't look as if it's been retouched much

Love it, especially the text only mods surprisingly! I've never been big on text only modifiers, but certain sets can get away with it & this is one IMO. I think you should go all the way & have text on the arrow keys TBH!

Nice and clean, I've wanted this exact combo myself before so thank you for actually putting an IC together!!

Love the inclusion of F13 in the base kit and definitely +1 for extra B key in the spacebars kit.

You might be able to do some cool molecule inspired novelties as has already been mentioned, but I would say err on the side of keeping it nice and simple (and hopefully affordable!) with no novelties. I'd be interested to know a rough price for full base kit (NaClO + H2O2 in one kit) vs the kits as they're laid out currently, since more and more I'm coming to believe the relatively small savings from splitting the numpad off just aren't worth the increased value of having numpad in the base.

I'd be fine with either text mods or icon + text mods. If anything, text mods are better coz they piss off Pwner :p

Some suggestions:
  • Move R1 End, R1 PgDn to the H2O2 kit. It doesn't make sense to have them in base if you don't have a numpad. Those keys are only useful on 1800, CP and 96-key layouts when coupled with a numpad.
  • In their place, add R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn to the base kit to support popular 65%/75% right column options.
  • Use “System” and “Sys” instead of “Win” for the OS key legends.
  • Use “Caps” instead of “Caps↲Lock” as the stepped caps legend for a uniform, one-line look across the entire set.
  • We've had this discussion many times before, but I suggest using R3 \| instead of R3 #~ as the extra R3 ISO key.
