Hi guys,

just a quick update from my side.

We updated the kit for community feedback and price/performance.

221865-0

We are now executing the next steps towards the GB.

Cheers,
Jani

NICE!

I personally would have hoped for one more R5 1U cap because my favorite 60% bottom row layout is "1.5U | 1U | 1.5U | 6U | 1.5U | 1U | 1U | 1.5U". Something like "Fn", "Pn" or "Code". But I can just use one of the arrow keys from my HAD and HAU sets for this. Going for double "Super" instead of "Code" is a good decision imo.

So it looks great, just not perfect, but perfect won't be possible anyway. Hope you can make this advance from IC to GB quickly.

Thanks, for doing this!

I like the new kit. One question though: What is the R3 1.25u Fn used for?

I'd like to know that as well.
An R3 "Fn" would be perfect for me since I always have my Function key on the CapsLock position. But CapsLock is 1.5U, not 1.25U?

It's for 40% layouts.

40% OK.
Would have been really nice to see an R3 1.5U "Function". Seen on some SA sets before. But the big down-arrow does work as a representation for "Function" imo, so it's fine for me.

BU-BU-BU-BUT WAIT....

I just notice the absence of the F row or "R0". GMK brought back the old profile for this row as well. Wouldn't it be worth considering to offer this as well, maybe as addon kit?

There is a separate GB in the works for an R0 kit. But the point is not to create some kind of "OG mods kit". This is a compatibility kit for vintage doubleshot keycaps. F keys are already available in the vintage sets, so there's no need to include them here. The only reason the mods are included at all is because some people want to "update" the vintage sets with modern icons.

Huh, it's right there. We went with the 'arrow down icon' capslock.

Oops, sorry, didn't notice it.
Any chance its not just icon, but both/each - icons and text?
Just asking...

No.. Well, the whole point is to convert the OG ANSI mods to icon mods.

"Convert vintage text+icon mod ANSI sets to icon mod ANSI sets"

OK, thanks.

Does it mean that there are original non-stepped OG Cherry capslocks?
All old sets I have only contain stepped ones, either ANSI or ISO.

Well, if you read the first page, another point of this is to provide compatibility for modern layouts. :)
