Just noticed the base kit has a 2u shift, but no second 2.25u shift in the base or any other kit. I think a second 2.25u shift has a lot more use than 2u shift?

Please add UK ISO to the base kit or even NORDE/UK kit.

Please consider adding an R4 1.5U Super (or two), and an R4 1.5U Fn.
Yes, please! My 75% has 2 x 1.5U to the right of the spacebar, which I also use as Super and Fn.

Right when I say "no more GMK" they PULL ME BACK IN.

I'd love to see a 1.25u space key in base (but I see that it's in the space kit) and also UK ISO somewhere, but I accept that these wishes are probably fanciful.

This looks super clean, but the accent colors kinda seem out of place since they are so vibrant.

Also inb4 Black on Grey keyset

Agreed with this. I like the grey accents, but the others would be improved by using be more muted colours imo, or just have bright legends on dark caps.

Thumbs up for full Alice Support in base, but I am not a fan of removing the numpad in favor of it.
If pricing is of concern, I'd propose raising the MOQ of this set to get a better quote. Neutral, "<color> on Black"
sets will do decently well, and for vendors they are a very safe bet to stock up on extras on, since it will look good on most things
and there is 0 chance this will come out scuffed as you stick to stock colors. If you look at the recent GMK Aurora Polaris GB (another CR set),
that colorway sold almost 1600 base kits, half of which are extras. An attractive 1000MOQ pricing should be achievable with this too, especially if the icon-escapes are
relocated into the trashcan, where they belong

Edit: Wrongly assumed base color was CR due to the set name and me not reading properly. Since it's still very similar to CR, my point about the sales potential of this set still stands. Form filled, GLWIC!

The set is actually using a custom black color that is between CR and N9. It is a little bit confusing at the top of the screen but I'm going to emphasize it more. But yeah the odds it comes out scuffed are pretty low since it's still black at the end of the day. Regarding a higher MOQ, 1000 is obviously ideal but it's up to the vendor to make the final decision so the kitting would obviously be somewhat dependent on what MOQ this set is priced at. The icon escapes are actually quite popular according to the first 100 form repsonses but the IC hasn't had enough exposure that I am comfortable making any kitting changes yet. Thank you for your response!

So accent space bars are dropped completely I guess, but if you change your mind, please add them to the same accent kit. Anyway, just to directly to groupbuy. I think the set is good now.

Yeah, I think that the portion of people that use accent spacebars is pretty low so I decided to ax them in favor of arrow keys which will most likely be of more use.

I cant speak for anyone else, but I don't think the purple or red accents work.  The third dark blue grey is really nice.  I would suggest changing the purple or red to a related off white or light grey instead.  That would work very well.  Just my opinion.  Thank you.

I think an off white/grey would clash too much with the grey that is already incorporated within the set. Since it's just an accent kit for a very simple set I'm not too worried about swapping around the colors based on community preference. But out of the 120 or so IC form responses those were by far the most highly requested and I can't disagree that these are an improvement over the original. It's very early in the IC so nothing is definite.

Have you tried P3 or RO1 red instead of RO2, also green accents may go well with black? Also, the purple is kinda out of place imo. Definitely need more renders with the accents.

I think the darker red of R01 would look better. I am okay with R02 though, the contrast of a lighter shade of red should look good but I agree more renders with the accents would be nice.

I will definitely get some more renders with the accents over the coming days and will look into everyone's suggestions

My reason for suggesting a neutral colour like an off white for one of the accents was to compliment and contrast the dark theme but still in neutrals.  Take a look at the renders of the Grid 650 Keyboard that were used, that grey set looked really well because they used a flat white almost very light grey for the enter key.

Please also consider UK ISO in the base or an additional kit.
