I will echo the hope for language agnostic icon only mods.  3 key (R2 1.75u Backspace, R3 1.25u Tab and R3 1.5 Enter) covers the vast majority of 40s layouts physically.  And maybe an outside shot at Cyrillic F row? ф1, ф2, etc just has that look to it. (If those molds are public, I guess) Спасибо!

40's support has been added!, also the ф-row is a very interesting idea, I'll definitely try something like that, even if the molds don't exist, might as well make them haha

I might inquire about making custom russian text+icon molds, but we'll have to see about that...


Now, THAT would change everything, Russian text + icon mods? That would launch this set into the stratosphere of awesomeness for me

Thank you for adding 40s to base! I think the russian text + icon mods OR icon mods would sell me on the set completely because visually it feels a bit out of place when there are english text mods and alphas in another language (this is something I feel about lots of sets). if there were side-printed latin alphas, that would change my opinion completely but I don't think that's probably feasible here. also, I agree with the comment of 2nd B in base (and alt alpha kit), supposedly it's a bit cheaper that way to keep the spacebar kit all single-shot keys.

Love the colours as long as they can be recreated properly.  Also love the extension kit which is a nice touch.  Please consider adding UK ISO to the base kit or if not then a separate kit.  Love the colours, did I say that already?

i wanted to not like it, becasue Velo was so cool, but despite myself, it's actually a pretty nice set. Especially including the cyrilic in the base, though i would prefer sub legends. (Still liked Velo better..) :p

This is so you can cover 2 boards, one being tsangan, you basically have a second set of mods in the base besides the tab

Very nice color, but it's tough for me to justify the cost as a latin user with the pain of Nautilus Nightmares still lingering. I dunno if there's something inherently tricky with green, I'm still flabbergasted how Zambumon could make a keyset that looks like a Tao-Bao knock-off. I'd definitely give it a go with a latin base kit, but as it stands it depends how adventurous/rich I'm feeling when the time comes. Good luck to you all the same.

I'm strongly against 40s support in the base. There is a reason no one does it: it will increase the price of the base kit significantly, and since 40s community is small (just look sales numbers for other sets), you risk loosing more sales then you gain.

This is especially a problem because getting Latin alphas already requires purchasing a separate kit. A lot of people need Latin legends and if the base kit is costly you may alienate people, who would otherwise purchase the set.

40s in base consists of 3 keys. That's hardly going to increase the price. I'm strongly for 40s in base. I was not considering purchasing this set prior to their inclusion. Plus, there's plenty of sets that have been including those 3 keys in base lately. "No one does it" is hardly accurate. I'm guessing that you didn't even notice that those 3 40s keys are already in the base kit render.

Thanks for pointing that out, you may be quite right, it's just I'm a little anxious after GMK Iconographic failure and don't want to see another incredible set not hitting the MOQ.
