you are missing a key for terminal iso support. Also fix your renders they don't look great. Super washed out.

edit: This does not make sense to me.

FAQ

Q: Why is there no dedicated novelties or 40s kit?

A: I have faith Milkyways can deliver on multiple different kits and will explore it in future projects with them, but for this first run with them, I want to make it as simple as possible for a relatively new manufacturer.

What

Q: What colors are you using?

A: Will probably release later

I rather make things simpler for a newer manufacturer and to have less kits for them to worry about. I'll leave it at that. If the set does well enough for a round 2 to happen, we'll do a dedicated 40s kit.

This makes no sense to me. They havenít had any issues delivering correct keys as far as Iíve seen (compared to KAT, hooboy...) and with how they handle MOQ, additional kits arenít a problem, theyíre a selling point, to encourage people to buy MW over manus with less kitting freedom.

It seems you were inspired by Sogurtís kitting (and your fruit novelties look a bit too similar to that set for my liking), but novelties in base made sense for that set because they functioned more like accent keys, and the appeal was mixing and matching them. Sogurt also had limited 40s support, but I think thatís mostly because a dedicated 40s kit would have needed its own accents, and because accents were the interchangeable fun part, it got too complicated.

Personally, I donít think the colours or novelties for this set are attractive enough. Itís like PBT Honey with a less iconic theme, and with kitting like that, I may as well wait for GMK Fenglisu.
ďThis plastic rectangle is alright. The plastic rectangles on top of it, though...Ē

Just a bit of context behind MW Sogurt's kitting, the novelty accents were put in base kit because MW has a significant MOQ for child kits that contain colors that are not in the base kit.

To your first point, I don't believe any of their sets have actually delivered yet (besides PBT 02/015) which were pre-order and manufactured ahead of time, so really can not judge yet on whether they can deliver the correct keys or not. They should be delivering soon and if proven that there are no issues before this runs, I will add a dedicated 40s kit before we begin GB. Again, I am sure they will do great, but as of now and until they do deliver on more sets, I will hold off on committing. As for my fruit novelties, on closer inspection, I can see where you're coming from on the cute Mango novelty. I will reach out to Dandy for his opinion on it and edit if needed.

Just a bit of context behind MW Sogurt's kitting, the novelty accents were put in base kit because MW has a significant MOQ for child kits that contain colors that are not in the base kit.

Makes sense. thanks for the context

hello pls add 40s (mod kit or 40s base preferably)

you have 3 key 40s with force accent enter but no r2 1u in accent colour anywhere

this cheesecake is my favourite too, hope you improve kitting

Those colors are great. I really love how they mesh together. If I had a keyboard that would match it, it would be an insta-buy.

40s now added. Since so many people on the IC form and here requested for a 40s kit, I have decided to add a 40s kit to the set. There will be no more changes so prepare for quotes and GB date.

Solution is to get a keyboard that would match :D

Added some more collabs, vendors, and a tentative GB date! This group buy date could be moved if samples do not come in time, but I'm hoping for the best
