Not accurate without a yellow or purple (Being the opposite of yellow) spacebar. Understandable that pretty much no one would want that instead of beige, but without it the set doesn't seem thematically correct.

As this is a beige set. It therefore requires R5

Hi everyone!

I've updated the IC a little bit, cleaned up the IC form a bit too. Please check the second post in the IC for a log of updates on the set! In short, we're looking well on our way to group buy later this year!

I just wanted to respond to some of the comments and criticisms of the set, just so you know that I do take your feedback into consideration!

First up: Row 5

It's a beige set, I'm unsurprised that peoeple want R5. I've changed the IC form to reflect this demand, please let me know which way you'd prefer I did R5 (if at all) in the form.

Secondly: Yellow on beige is a bit hard to see

I understand that the render does make this colour combo a bit difficult to read, and it has the potential to be a bit difficult in person. I have full confidence it will turn out fine in the final set. GMK Soware has a similar yellow on beige key and it looks perfectly fine to me. I don't intend to change any of the colours in the set, as it wont be true to the source material (KA1953 and Handarbeit)

Third: Mod pipe key

This is in the IC form. I personally don't use it, but if you do, let me know!

Fourth: Icon mods

Not happening, sorry. This set is based on KA1953, and I intend to keep it that way.

Fifth: Ditching the numpad.

Also not happening, sorry. The price cut of removing it from base is far outweighed by the price of numpad as a child kit. There's too many good layouts with numpads these days to leave it out.

Sixth: Sublegends

This was a tougher one, but I've ultimately decided against them. They just thematically don't make much sense after all. Maybe one day an alt-alpha kit will be run as a seperate IC, but not this time around.

Seventh: Scroll lock and num lock legends

They're from the OG Handarbeit board, they're cool and I'm keeping them.

Eighth: Running this in PBT

Sorry, but no. I understand GMK is expensive and that PBT options are really good these days, but the inspiration for this set is made of ABS, and so will this set.

Nineth: R4/R5 caps lock key

You'd be surprised how many people use it (including myself). It's the best and it's gonna stay in the set.

Feel free to comment any further concerns, or dm me on discord at guypigeotto#2428 I'll do my best to respond when I can.

Any chance we could get some 40's support for this?

Would love nothing more than to rock this with some of my 40's boards man like Prime_E, or specially for ortho like Rama M-50 <3 <3
