Changelog

CHANGES NOT YET REFLECTED IN RENDERS

More
Thank you for your feedback, these are the changes we have made so far.

Accent kits:
- R5 bottom rows will be added.

Icon Mod Kit:
- Purse, Stepped Purse, Stepped & Windowed Purse

R0/R5 Kit:
- Will be similar to mcmcmc's Beige R0/R5 Kit

Q&A
Will try to keep this updated with IC form responses.

Why no F13, B, and split spacebar support since they are missing in Drop's WOB?
Already running in GMK Grýseann 2

Why no macro kit?
Already running in GMK Grýseann 2

Standalone 40s kit?
Very unlikely at this point. Basic 40s support is being added to the existing kits.

Icon bottom row?
No.

Text only mods?
No.

Shinethrough?
GMK WOB Shinethrough

Hi, very interesting kits, dark rgb is a must buy. Also filled IC form and saw your interest for potential R5 kit, that would be awesome to offer something such as extensions R0/R5 which is almost impossible to get.

In the actual kits, R5 1u x2 would be a great addition for Tsangan layout.

A macOS kit would be pretty neat. A macOS kit with R5 would be a godsend :)
Would you also consider R5 1.5u Super keys?

GLWIC!
From the IC results so far, the demand for R5 definitely seems high so it will more than likely be included at this point. As far as the macOS kit is concerned, it's highly unlikely that it will be added but I have no reason not to if there's enough interest from the IC results. Thanks!

R4 1.5u supers are already in the 2 accent kits with plans on adding R5 1.5u supers as well. With the current results, there's a high chance that there's going to be a separate R0/R5 WoB kit and R5 supers will also be included there.

This is awesome! While at it, please consider adding R0 and R5 support since those aren't running in a standalone kit with GMK Griseann R2
Even tho some people wouldn't technically consider them "Essentials" I'm sure the option to buy a kit like that would be appreciated since an R0 in WoB is not possible to buy without recurring to aftermarket, and since that R0/R5 GB ran more than 2 years ago, I feel like this is a good opportunity for a new round
In the case you decide to do so, I would move the R5 Numpad Enter to the R0/R5 kit

BTW, out of the top of my head, why is there a second accented Fn key. Is it there just in case someone wants to use the accents in 2 different boards with a split RShift?

R0 + R5 kit will be added.

See Blunt's response about second 1u fn below. I'm too stupid and it's too early.

The 2nd Fn key is there for people who want to do 2 boards with split right shift as you said (one shift from icon only, one shift from text+icon)
