Any chance for UK ISO to be included in base??? What a set, well done

Yeah, I was planning on it. Could you point out the keys that I'm missing so that I can fix the base kit? It's been challenging to get the kitting right so I want to make sure I have everything correct. Thanks!

The 6u space bar is off centered right? I mean, it should support all the 1800's out there.
As far as I know, all modern PCBs with 6u space (1800, 66-key, 60% etc.) support at least centered stem, but not all of them support off-centered stem. The reverse is true on OG 1800 Cherry PCBs, but probably not much else. Ideally the kit would include both 6u options, but if there's only room for one, I think centered stem is better.




I think the set has both; but, the space bars are not in alpha color. The Cherry 1800 PCB, when carrying 6u, is off centered.

ISO users are already a niche, adding specific keys for a niche within a niche and increasing the size of an already large base kit by 4+ is not a good idea, imo. Read this post.

That being said, it's not my place to argue the decisions you make as the designer of the set. If you want to add ISO-UK support to the base kit, these are the exact changes you need to make:
  • Add R1 1u
  • Add R1 1u 2"
  • Add R1 1u
  • Add R3 1u '@
  • Change R3 1u \| to #~
  • Change R4 1u <> to \|
But, again, I would advise staying with the current setup as it covers more ISO users with the least amount of keys, and also because all of the Nordic countries use that <> key.

GMK Hammerhead had a very large base kit which included UK ISO support. My set also excludes the numpad from base so I assumed that gave me some leeway to support smaller niches in the base kit. If I'm wrong please tell me as I'm still learning all the minute details.

Hammerhead's NA price is very much an outlier. A more appropriate comparison would be GMK Nord, which has a slightly smaller base kit than this, also numpadless, but is priced at $125 @ 500 MOQ, the same as Hammerhead's full base kit @ 250 MOQ. The difference is that GMK Nord uses double the amount of custom colors (8 vs 4). Another example would be GMK Fro.Yo, which uses one less custom color than this (4), but is priced at $135 @ 250 MOQ for a small numpadless base kit. Also GMK Rouge, with one more custom color (6), priced at $120 @ 250 MOQ for a very small numpadless base kit.

In summary, no numpad doesn't mean a cheap base kit. Custom colors play a large role, and you should still be careful about putting too many extra keys in base. You already have several large keys in there (three spacebars, soon to be four; two ISO Enters; a few extra Shifts...), accent arrows etc., and all of that adds up.

I'm most likely going to cut the beige spacebar from base and add to the spacebar kit after I fix its compatibility issues that were mentioned prior. I was also going to get rid of one or two of the extra shifts. I might swap one of the black RALs to stock CR. Thanks for the tips. Your comments have been imperative for fixing this sets issues.

Im a bit doubtful about your runic novelites. Where did you get those translations from? Im no expert but from what I remember from school "Midgård" in old norse is spelled "Miþkarþ" (Midkard) not "Mitkrt", like it says on your enter key. Didnt check the others but reacted instantly to that one cause there atleast seems to be a letter missing (a) and youve swapped þ (d) for t for some reason?

I might change back to the old RAL. Its about 50/50 between people liking it vs not liking it. We'll see

I also personally preferred the previous color, I feel like the darker alphas offset the desk mat in a negative way as there is little to no tan now.

+1 for the old alpha color, I liked how it looked better than CR.

Assuming you will be moving the beige spacebars to a spacebar kit, the updated base kit looks good now, except for the R4 \| ISO key, which will need to be moved to R3.

Yeah old alpha color will be making a return. Either way I think it looks fantastic. Will also make that fix when I redo the renders.

No date on group buy yet. Still working on getting the rest of my vendors but its looking good. Spacebars has been the hardest kit for me to figure out for some reason. I think im gonna add Alice compatibility. I just need to look at what else I need before I post the renders

Yeah. Rune mono legends are winning by a fair margin. Personally I think they would look better as Monos because I think sublegends are too cluttered. Ill probably offer latin alphas as a child kit for those who aren't fans of it.

Here's another vote for monolegends. Besides it looking cleaner than sublegends, it gives alternate layout users a great alpha keys option.

Interesting set — I like the colourway more than I would have expected initially.

That said, the kits (as they stand now) still need some work:


- The base kit has <> and \| in R4 — \| should be one row up, in R3.
- An extra B and an F13 key have become pretty much standard additions to base kits in ICs. Consider having them, too.


- The NorDeUk kit is described as having support for "Norwegian, British, German, Danish", yet Swedish/Finnish is fully supported but not included in the list.
- '? in R1 isn't used in any of the four (five) layouts listed, so it should be taken out.
- English (UK) (not "British") is missing R4 \| and R3 #~.
- The keys ◌́◌̀, ◌́◌̀| and \◌̀◌́ all show the acute accent as a low mark. This might just be a render artifact, but do ensure that remains only as so.
- Same goes for the positioning of the £ sign in 3#£.
- Since R4 <> is in the base kit already, it can chopped off the NorDeUk kit.
- Consider adding the numpad comma keys, here or in the numpad kit.

GLWIC!

The demand for Futhark alphas is incredibly high. 300+ responses on the google form are in favor of rune alphas in some form. Making them as a child kit would not only increase the price massively for the majority who want them, the moq would also be extremely high for a child kit. I'll have to discuss with vendors because they know more than I do. The google forms are also split right down the middle at 50% Monos and 50% Subs so I'll have to do renders for both and make another form to see which one is more popular after they actually see it on a board.

Yeah I've been trying my best to get a good base kit. Every time I fix 1 thing 2 more problems arise. I'm trying my best and will consult a few people who know more than me when I redo the renders. Thanks!

Interesting set — I like the colourway more than I would have expected initially.

That said, the kits (as they stand now) still need some work:


- The base kit has <> and \| in R4 — \| should be one row up, in R3.
- An extra B and an F13 key have become pretty much standard additions to base kits in ICs. Consider having them, too.


- The NorDeUk kit is described as having support for "Norwegian, British, German, Danish", yet Swedish/Finnish is fully supported but not included in the list.
- '? in R1 isn't used in any of the four (five) layouts listed, so it should be taken out.
- English (UK) (not "British") is missing R4 \| and R3 #~.
- The keys ◌́◌̀, ◌́◌̀| and \◌̀◌́ all show the acute accent as a low mark. This might just be a render artifact, but do ensure that remains only as so.
- Same goes for the positioning of the £ sign in 3#£.
- Since R4 <> is in the base kit already, it can chopped off the NorDeUk kit.
- Consider adding the numpad comma keys, here or in the numpad kit.

GLWIC!

Thank you for your feedback. I'll definitely make some of these changes when I go back and redo the base kit renders, maybe tomorrow if I can.

I like it, but can't we have the runes like secondary alphas like all the weeb-set have Japanese? 🙏

I wish there was an option for the full scandinavianl rune alphabet for alphas.
