I was so hyped about the kit, but just realized that there is no 1.25 shift in the 40% kit. RIP

That's because there's a 1.25U shift in the base kit!

Love the kit update!
It's missing a 1u backspace (which is used in Adélie render), but I'll just use minus or something. I wouldn't be using the key as backspace anyway.

Thank you for pointing that out! I'll be sure to add a disclaimer on those renders that the key is no longer included in any of the kits.

I’m so confused, why was the 1u backspace removed? The ortho kit doesn’t support ortho anymore :(

This means I’m out

Question about the Brass mods - will there not be brass mods for the top row of numpad? (Numlock / * - )

Unfortunately, the brass mods kit has been reduced to support up to TKL layouts to keep the cost as low as possible. Alternate mods kits get very expensive very quickly, so I had to make some difficult decisions to keep it at a reasonable cost :(

I had checked with the 40s discord server as I'm hardly an expert on 40s/ortho kitting, and they said that the kit looked fine, so I was unaware that the 1u backspace was considered integral. If enough people feel that they need the 1u backspace added back to the 40s kit, it's certainly something that can happen.

Update: I checked with them again and realized that my 40s/ortho kitting was inconsistant, I don't intend to offer support for UT47 (anyone who wanted this set for that please feel free to leave a comment and I can consider it), so I'll be removing the 1.25 enter and 1.5 shift (formerly intended for Evolv support) in exchange for a 1u backspace. Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

Would be nice to have some images of renders with the Brass Modkit on. Most of your images only have the Base Kit.

Hey there! Glad you'll be adding back the 1u backspace (did not realize it was missing) but could I caution against removing 1.25 enter key? There's a few layouts that use it, and it'd be hella nice to have in the kit :) 1.5u shift is not that prevalent however.

Would have loved to see a UK ISO kit included, it would have been an instabuy for me. GLWIC

I've got a few coming up that will be on the GB page for sure, I'm waiting for permission since some of the boards that I've rendered with haven't been publicly announced yet

have you considered putting brass mods in the base kit?
I feel the current base lacks a bit too much contrast.
this is just a suggestion.

I have considered it, but prefer the simplicity of the all white kitting.

Like I said in an earlier comment, I have a few renders with the brass mod kit, I've just done them on a board that hasn't been announced yet. I can guarantee that I'll have the renders up on at least the GB post if not earlier  :D

Just a beautiful kit and looks so good on e-white.  Hope you do an R2 with ISO-UK support!

Is there any chance that this set will run to the beginning of March?

That is unfortunately the only scenario that I would be able to afford to buy this set!

The set will be running starting today, January 23rd, through February 23rd. Vendors will be ordering extras though, so you might be able to pick up a set later!

I see  no price for extras in Europe. Does it mean we're toast for deskmat/artisans?
That'll pretty much decide if I order through my keyboard or proto[typist].  :cool:

edit: The gb is now live on my keyboard with all the extras.
Bonus question: will the other artisans be added as they are revealed ? (looking at you Mode Designs)
