I've been waiting for someone to make this obvious "keyboard" connection happen. Surprised it took this long.

Oct 2, 2020 - Kit update v.001
« Reply #53 on: Thu, 01 October 2020, 22:57:31 »
Oct 2, 2020 - Kit update v.001
I just amend some changes on all kits based on suggestions from IC and from konstantin, ttom & other experienced people.

Base Kit Changes:
- Removed '@, #~ keys
- Adding R1 1u F13 key (modifier color)
- Changed R4 1.5u Code to Super



Novelty changes (thanks to dvorcol):
- Added more R4 compatibility
- Added common time symbol (1u, 1.25u) for Fn novelty.



Accent changes:
- Added R1 golden legend F13 key
- Added R4 golden arrow cluster key



Obscure changes/brainstorming:
- Added Lower and Raise key
- Added 1u '" modifier key
- Changed the R3 1u icon mod of tab to ^ (picture is wrong. R2 tab showing ^. It will still be a regular tab icon mod)
- Removed 3u convex bar



Will update again in couple weeks or earlier.

Any chance we could get a pianissimo novelty to go with the fortissimo one? Would be pretty cool for volume keys.

pp (pianissimo) is considered, there's quite a bit of similar request.
As for right now, volume keys (R1 or R2) is represented by the GoB and BoG accent.

What a mad man of culture going for a second waifu desk mat design
Opinions:
- Keep Time signature as 3/8 - looks better aesthetically, as 3 balances the 8 better than 6
- Yes to pp novelty
- Repeat symbol for backspace
- Rest symbol for spacebar

November 7, 2020 - Kits Updated & More Renders
Adding new kit: Spacebars! The rest of the kits had been 'upgraded' for better compat. Do let me know what you think!

P.S: As much as I intended to include the PP (pianissimo) artisan, Unfortunately it's not going to happen.

On another matter, hopefully in next 14 days, RAMA metal artisan keycaps will be revealed!

This may not be the right place to bring this up, but I'll use this occasion nevertheless. I like this set and I would be likely to join the GB.

However, as much as I like Jae and all his work, is it really feasible to use a single European vendor when said vendor is in a country that is not part of the European Union? Living in Denmark this means I would be paying 25% VAT on top of whatever GB price is as well as a flat rate "processing fee" of the equivalent of $26 (this applies to all packages coming from outside the EU). It may actually end up being cheaper to buy from an Asian vendor, which is a bit absurd when GMK is produced in a neighboring country.

I have asked Jae about this and will probably come up with a solution to cater EU buyers (without charging VAT) sometimes in next week/next couple weeks.
Jae might reply to this as well, as I heard from him something related to brexit deal announcement that's currently happening in Europe.

Thanks for addressing this and again, for your interest for this set!
