I want this set so bad but please please please match the colour of the legends of the dark mods kit to the base kit legends! This would look so good as a monochrome set and it would be a lot more coherent if it was all the same colour. I would also apply the same logic to the three dark keys of the light alpha kit.
GLWIC and I can't wait until I get to spend my money on this!

Love the color and theme of the set! I also wish to add on my sentiment that matching the dark modifier legends to those of the alphas in the base kit would look much better, and personally would warrant me getting the modifier kit over the current modifier kit.

Really nice, will probably buy.

Just my five cents: do more people really use HJKL than IJKL? I get that it is how VIM does thing, but like... Surely way more people would want an arrow kit for IJKL.

Also really hope the Macro kit becomes the norm for epbt´s kits.

Can you add a centered stem Caps Lock in the base kit?

Pretty sure he meant a centre stemmed stepped Caps Lock. Don't think epbt has ever done that though. Wish they would start to. Saw that hkgaming/polycaps (https://kineticlabs.store/keycaps/polycaps/9009-blank-pbt) has figured it out. Will probably get their 9009 kit just for that reason.

I noticed in the kitting that all additional right shift on the 3rd to last row are labeled incorrectly: the label says 2.75u but the actual key size looks to be 2.25u (same size as the 2.25u enter key above it). This applies to both the base kit and the dark mod kit.

Hello! Should Dark Mod kit include F1-4 and F5-9 since they are suppose to be inverted when compared to the base kit? Thanks

I much prefer the dark mods + light alphas instead of the base kit and was going to get those two instead but i'll end up missing 8 out of 12 F rows LOL

Also, Thank you for considering having an UK vendor

I'm not sure ePBT has a mold for it. But I can ask for future sets, just don't get your hopes too high for it.

I'll put it up for debate in the next IC form. I'll go with whichever people like more.

Yep I realized this when I started remaking the kitting/renders. I'll make sure to fix this when I post the next update.

Looks like.

Seems like the Vim (titlecase, not uppercase) + HHKB kit has HHKB arrows that aren't really necessary. The blue HHKB arrows appear to have white legends but that's the only difference comapred with the base kit keys. I don't think it is different enough to stand out, and if it did stand out it wouldn't match the theme. I am fully for keeping the beige coloured HHKB arrows though.

At that point it will feel too much like KAT/KAM kitting. I think 14 kits is a good balance where most people can get what they want and the vendors don't hate me for having a ton of kits.

I think the look you are going for shouldn't be too expensive all things consider, plus the base kit + Hiragana kit is enough for 2 boards.

Unless my eyes are tired, the dark R4 "<>" is not available in the base kit (dark). It's only in the light alpha kit (which is weird because it should be a mirror it the dark theme) and in the NorDe kit. Also it's not the Azerty Kit which make it useless for some languages like ISO-FR.

Regarding the light alpha kit configuration, I suggest to move this specific "<>" key from NorDe to the base kit or .... i don't know review how this is included in other kits like AZERTY

Edits:
* i change my comment, the key is on R4 not on R3, yeah i'm tired

I originally had the <> in the base but I took it out when I moved ISO-UK to the base. I must have missed it when creating the AZERTY kit, I'll make sure to add it there.

As for the Light alpha kit, I am going to opt to keep it at terminal ISO rather than provide ISO-UK or ISO-FR support because there is just no way to fit everything in there

F you - I also like my highlighted HHKB keys. If you read the entirety of my comment you'd know that - and you'd also see that my only gripe is with the out of place white legends as a way of highlighting.

Love the color scheme! Any chance you could add an Iso IT (or other countries) subset?

Let’s call it an IT & ES kit and I’m in as well :)

That being said, an ES/LA/IT/PT kit would probably be the best combination to gather enough interest to be worth it. Hopefully?

Isn't similar to GMK Rudy? https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=101109.0
I mean, I guess they have a similar colour set, but the shades are completely different. Definitely think this set is more than enough of a departure from that.

This kit spltited the ISO kit from the international needs. It misses some keys for all language (like the basic R2 A Z keys, R3 Q, R4  W for AZERTY, etc ..) but it can be done like in this one.
Dunno if it may help and can be done. Maybe this international option is only for default color and not light alpha ?

But yes : if in conclusion, you cannot add more "languages", just rename it ISO-FR to avoid confusion and go fully for it.

Is there any chance you could add other national kit other than Azerty, personally I would be very interested in an Iso Italian kit. I know that for ePBT, child kits don't need to reach MOQ and the keycaps for italian layout are just a few. Please consider adding it. For me it would be an instabuy

yes but from a market-share POV, it's a shame not all languages reached the 100 minimum units. It says "look: no need to make all languages"  :(
Hope it's only because it didn't find it's European audience

Yes you are correct on this, I'm an idiot, I apologise for having used the wrong term. I meant Antarctic, as is the theme of the set. Easy to read about the connections to Russia and the ANTarctic just by doing a quick google/wikipedia search. Just thought it would be a fun addition to the set, but totally understand if OP thinks that there are enough sets already.

I really like this set and I'm very interested in getting one.

I also agree with some of the posts before me that more novelties would definitely be nice.
For me, the existing novelties don't really seem to gel together too nicely as some are outlined (the penguins) and some are filled (fin and fish), but maybe that's going to look good in the real world and I'm just overly sensitive to that  ;D

Oh, and please add an artisan to the set!

It was intentional. The difference is going to be subtle, but that is what I was going for.

I'm in the process of updating the current novelties I expect them to be done by the end of this month/early May. (I also commissioned some enter novelties which should be ready Soon^TM)

In the mean time I posted a cupple of updated kit renders which should hopefully fix the lighting and kitting issues. I expect the have the rest of the kit and board renders up early May.
