Alright, I really don't need another SA keyset, but this is beautiful. With the ortho kit separated from 40s, it has become even more attractive to me, so this is the first time I'm asking it here: Any chance for a Colevrak kit?

And to complete the ortho kit for supporting split ergo boards, please consider adding two 1.5u space keys.

I though I had posted on this but I saw this a while back and thought it was a really good looking set! I am looking forward to seeing the deskmats. I hope to get in on the when it drops on GB. GLWIC

If there's any RAMA caps, the eye of RA would probably look cool
I second that. Golden RAMA with the eye of RA seems appropriate.

Yes! I love the new split 40s and ortho sets. Niceeeeee

No 2u spacebar in it is odd to me though, isn’t it more common in ortho boards than two 1u space keys?

Really liking the look of this! The color scheme matches the SA style really well :)

Would definitely be getting the Alt Alphas and Mods if I were to buy it. I just like lighter alphas more.

I'm really glad I discovered this set! I just picked up a dark green KBD8x MKII and I think sand alphas/nile mods would complement it perfectly. Definitely jumping on this when the GB hits.

For the Ortho Kit:
https://i.imgur.com/pLkgLEy.png
-I recommend including at least 1x 2u spacebar.
-R3 enter is decently popular to be worth including. If you decide to make this change, I recommend dropping the enter accent and leaving just the Esc accent
-R2 Esc is decently popular to be worth including. Not all ortho users swap Tab and Esc

If the goal is to ONLY include support for the "default" layout of Planck/Preonic, then you've achieved that as is.

For the 40's add-on kit:
https://i.imgur.com/XFLifDD.png
I'm really conflicted with this kitting decision.

For example, If I wanted to kit out a minivan, I'd have to purchase FOUR kits; base mods (for 1.75u shift, bottom row mods, and arrows) +alphas +40s (for 1.75u backspace, 1.5u enter, 1.25u tab, and would have to use 1u Super/Fn from base instead of legend accurate 1u Shift) +spacebars (for 2.25u/2u).

Is there a world where you consider running this as a full-on 40s mods kit that does not require the purchase of a base kit? Doing so would require a big change up and would require you to drop one of the color supports to make its pricing reasonable.

http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/ff85d60c119d342b63a24802d546e08a here is a mock-up of what an accent-less, single color 40's staggered mod kit could look like.
As a 40s user, I would be super into this + alphas. As it stands right now, the 4 kit ask of 40s users is a bit tough.

Thanks so much again for your advice! We already had this discussion on Discord but I felt weird leaving this hanging on the thread, so I'll post a summarised response.

Due to very low interest in the IC form, this set will have the bare minimum Plank/Preonic support for the Ortho kit, and we have decided on a 40s extension kit to follow in the footsteps of other notable SA sets. I understand that it's quite costly to always buy a base alpha/mod kit and then top up with 40s and spacebar kits, but as a customer it's what I would prefer because then I would have the flexibility to use the set for all kinds of layouts in future, without the gripe of having lots of repeated keys.

Somehow missed this until now, love the green.

A few things I noticed, Caps Lock and Num Lock appear to be the only non-single line mods, what are your thoughts on changing these to simply Caps and Num respectively?

Also F13 possibility?

Hellooo sorry I missed these questions! For the mods the moulds are pretty standard, so we're just going with the two lines like most SP sets. F13 not in the works I'm afraid. I'm glad you like the green though!! Thanks for your support!
