The kits aren't *that* minimal, and it's like six keys for full UK support. Plus the numpad kit is a good home for those keys as they can support eachother in hitting the MOQ as has been done with various other sets in the past.  There's no harm in asking, is there?

The "minimal" kitting idea was removed after a lot of people complained and showed more interest for a larger kitting more expensive than a smaller for a cheaper price. So that idea is not there anymore. I don't get the issue that multiple people works on a set tbh.

You should check with GMK to make sure these colors can be produced prior to running the GB. Not all colors can be remade due to pigment restrictions in EU. This is likely fine, as it's generally only an issue for neon pinks/reds, but I would still recommend asking first.

Already have the physical samples from GMK in person, tried to make everything I can behind the scenes before releasing the IC, thank you for your words, the novelties have been revised too by GMK to check the feasibility.

Feedback on the keycaps: The novelties with shapes akin to the key should have equal spacing to the edge of the keycap all the way around. It looks weird not doing so.

Feedback on the vendor choices: With the history I've seen from customers of Loobed, I cannot support this set in GB unless another NA vendor was chosen. I get that they are involved in the design process, but just a simple search of reddit.com loobed or asking in your local Discord, you can find out that many people have had pretty bad experiences. That's already far too much risk for me given what this hobby has been through.

Good luck, it's a cool set!  :thumb:

Why numpad as a separate kit instead of being included in base? Also where is the 6u spacebar since alice bars were included unless it is using stock GMK colors. I like the overall colors being used but the kitting and questionable NA vendor just puts me off from this.

delusional take. keycaps don't have a layout (those are boards) and there is nothing wrong about terminal iso. l2type

9.5 out of 10 sets dont put 6u in base no

edit: i counted all 20 ICs on the first page atm and 3/20 have 6u in base (I excluded gravity well and the very cursed halloween set)

If I make a spacebar kit, I will have to include the alicebars on it, and that will make other people unhappy about it, no matter what I do, there will always be someone who is not happy

People will complain that has no sense to include a 6U without the 1.5u supers, and then about the 1u alts. After, UK ISO users will complain about that it makes no sense to include 6U spacebar because I said it's niche as well as their compatibility, so I should include that too, then, NorDe will ask for an international kit since it has no sense to only have international with the UK and I will have to add the NorDe kit and finally, my spanish and france fellas (I love you) will ask me to add ESFR since I'm making Nordeuk.

Yes almost every set doesn't put a 6u bar in the base. But that's because they have a spacebars kit. OP didn't want a spacebars kit because alice bars would be made to go down to the spacebars kit. This I wholeheartedly agree with him on not having a spacebars kit since you'd be making a whole different kit that will cost extra. In the end, it is the OP's decision to include whatever he wants.

but also many sets have alice bars in base and no 6u bars anywhere in the set (sleeping soon so cbb to count again) so after all it's just a whatevburger
