RESERVED FOR UPDATES

10/14/2021: Updated base with 1.5u R4 Bottom Row control modifier, Bars Kitting Change: Thanks to Aiwanei owner of Thockeys, we realized that SP's 6u spacebar is not compatible with standard 6u stabilizers. Long story short the mounting stems are more narrow. So we are dropping 6u Spacebar.

10/13/2021: Corrected Base Layout Render Uploaded - removed the extra 2.25u spacebar in base

10/13/2021: Updated store links for all vendors

Don't forget y'all, you can snag base, dark alphas, and spacebars and kit two regular sized boards, a regular sized board and a 40% board, or even two staggered 40s boards (or an ortho and a staggered 40s board) for under $200!

Theres macros columns, additional accents, a 10u spacebar, and even ergo mods! Don't miss out!

I'm interested, but I'd like to hear some more thoughts on how DCS profile compares to other profiles these days? From what I've read, my impression is DCS is "similar to Cherry profile with thinner walls and more aggressive bottom row sculpting". Is this still accurate nowadays?

Btw, the link to zfrontier isn't working. I can find Paperwork on its chinese site but not the english one.

As one who loves GMK, DCS is a pleasure. I have DCS muted Sleeper on a Prophet and it sounds amazing, of course there are other factors to that. DCS sits slightly lower than GMK and texture on top is rougher and slower to shine

I'll update thay zfrontier link asap

Render on the bacca showed both sides of the r4 mods being grey but after reviewing the kitting a couple of times it seems to be impossible?

Not sure why they are changed to icons from IC to GB, but I also prefer the text.

Bacca70 can be achieved using the dark alphas + alts and extensions + base

Accents and extensions do not contain another set of grey bottom row mods (control/windows/alt).

Base gives you 1.25 bottom row mods on the right, accents and extensions can be used for the 1.25 bottom row mods on the left

using the extension kit 1.5u on bottom row would be 2x Alt, Control, and Windows rather than 2x Control which is what some folks use. I personally prefer this option for those who want an all-gray kit but to each their own. In general, icon legend accuracy doesn't bother me nearly as much as with legends so I'd throw the alts in the outside bottom row spots and win/ctrl on the inside

But the bacca is a tsangan bottom row board. Am I missing something?

Not sure what you mean by "replaced". Every run of Paperwork has used full icon mods.

Edit: I see, referring to the renders from the initial IC.

Typo, you are correct. It's 1.5u bottom row and yes, the icons there are 2x alt, 1x ctrl, 1x super

Bummer. I prefer the lighter mods. Davis, any reason for the stealth change?

I'm not sure why the render color was lighter in the IC but it's always been the same stock colors. DSA paperwork has the same colors from SP if you're looking for a real-life comparison of the grays https://trashman.club/dsa-paperwork

There was only a renderer change, we def color matched as much as possible but there a lot of real life images of paperwork out in the wild, same stock colors are being used. I did order samples and took a photo of those so people could get a good idea of what the keycaps woul dlook like in real life. Hope that helps!

I assumed that the grays will be the same or at least are supposed to bethe same and the difference hue is just in this render. but my problem is the text mods being changed to icons and specially the insert cap. it went from hero to zero for me and from a 100% cop to pass.

I'm ashamed to admit that I did not order a single Ergo kit, but I got everything else and 2x alt alphas to make up for it.
