I really dig this set! Any chance of doing split spacebars in either of the accent colors?

Are you Canadian? Your French sounds funny.

This made my day:

"What a stupid name, pronouncing that would sound so stupid, æ isn't "ae" it's a different letter all together, as a norwegian I get a micropenis each time I hear a American/English company try to use; æøå."

I speak no French and did it for hipstery, cliché purposes. I really wanted to lean into cliché as much as I could with this set since it's basically the keyset equivalent of selective color photography. See: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/-hkfz15ju38/maxresdefault.jpg That said, I am proud of the set nonetheless

Apologies to those who do actually speak French - no harm was intended by murdering your language here. <3

Don't apologize, nobody was offended in the French community. I personnaly like your set, and I appreciated you put French in your IC.  :)

One vote from me for the red color of the accents to be used for a modifiers kit!

Attached a basic paint render using Sparta's mods just to get an idea how it would look like ;)

Some modest musings:

- Quite an interesting colorway (I'd skip the kahki keys and keep that color for the legends only, but that's my personal taste; I appreciate that those keys are off the base kit).

- I dig that you included four R1 blanks. I dig both numpad equals keys (have you considered a numpad comma?).

- My only complaint would be about swapping one R3 key from the base kit with one from the mega add-on kit (one guess as to which ones).

- How about an extra Æ in R4, to serve the oft-forgotten Ælice kæyboards?

- Renders have F1..F10 in the EF block (the "macro block" for the young whippersnappers), but I don't see the R2..R4 F keys in either kit. The inclusion of an R4 Caps Lock key screams for 'em.

Thank you for taking the time for this - I appreciate it greatly! Especially "Ælice kæyboards" lol - well played, sir.

I'll certainly consider your points - for your last point about the different row profile F keys, that's a good idea but I worry about peoples' preferences in this regard. I know some vintage keyboards like the model F XT have oddly placed F keys vs. how I would put them in that column. I just fear I'd have to provide nearly a whole F row for each profile for something that is quite niche, tbh. Now, that being said, I may be misunderstanding your meaning - please correct me if I'm being obtuse, which I am quite frequently...

Awesome - I am a big fan too! Much love and credit to OCM for doing the work on them - he really really brought my vision to life in a way I couldn't have imagined.

Thank you for the kind words! I also find the color soothing - I love it. I am obsessed with it, vexed by it... I must have it on a keyboard...

I'd be lying if I told you I didn't like this. I had actually thought of this before and tried it out in rendertown, USA. I felt it was a bit too...Christmasy? If that's a word? It was a bit of a departure from what I had originally intended on doing when I chose the colors for the set. That being said, it's something to consider further on my end I think; although, to be candid, it's unlikely (not impossible though).

Regardless, thank you for your time and effort on making a good example for us to see!! <3

You're right about being obtuse regarding my acute observation. Let's see how can I angle this...  :D

To serve the needs of the weirdos who believe the XT/AT layout for the function keys is better than what the Enhanced layout provides, you'd need to have (besides the R1 F1..F12 keycaps in the base kit) at least eight more keys (presumably in the add-on kit): R2 F3 and F4, R3 F5 and F6, R4 F7..F10; perhaps ten keys (as before, plus two more R1 F1 and F2), to have both the F row and the EF block complete.

This would mean adding eight or ten more keys in the add-on kit, for the benefit of ¿not that many users? I just pointed this issue out because it called my attention that the EF function keys are present in the renders but not in the actual kit.

Here's an adjacent thought.  For some who need these extra 1U keycaps, function labels would be redundant.
