Just saw this, this is amazing! Only needs 2 things;
row 2 ergodox TAB (1,5u)
row 2 ergodox Enter (1,5u)

Add those and I'm in! :D

Sorry, its been several months since this project has had any steam. I'm currently trying to get it onto a platform and hope I can soon, so expect some final revisions coming through (where I'll need everybody's advice on what to change as well).

As for GMK Hana, it seems like JTK is more likely at this point which imo is a good thing as their sets are high quality and relatively cheap compared to other manufacturers.

Stay tuned!
The nordic kit is missing a few keys for proper support of any european layout. You would not start removing keys from the dworak/colemak kit as a cost saving measure, so why would you do it for the nordic kit?

Could you give more specifics on which keys are missing? I'm not intentionally omitting them, its just hard to get every key right in any group buy. Thats why it changes with almost every GB.

Well, if you wanted to have a full Nordic set, you'd have to throw in the first half of the number row:



SA Oblivion is an example of a set with full Nordic support, but it does mean a lot of keys:

The one he has originally is the version that is used by Nautilus.

The more complete euro kit looks like this (GMK Carbon used it so did the recent 9009 run):

The 9009 kit would be great. For 9009 there was a poll about it and about 80% of people preferred the complete kit versus the nautilus abomination.

I really like the windows and menu key substitutions from the flextras kit, all the coverage and the community child kit. My only preference would be for icon only modifiers but is obviously not a need. I'm happy that this is happening, feels like the first interest check for this set was so long ago! edit: Am especially happy its no longer in SA!

Thank you for the feedback on pricing, I was not sure that information may be available somewhere.

On the set design, I really like the R/MK icon. Is it a first in double shot? I am not sure if have seen such icon made by GMK.

Some changes i've made (no pics yet):
- F, J, numpad 5 scooped and barred
- 00 key added to base kit next to alternate 1u 0
- H, U, N, T in colevrak scooped
- updated spacebar kit
- 2u shift in base kit
- redone hatsune miku kit
- moved iso cyan enter to nordic/euro set
- cyan arrow keys in electric symbols kit

In progress:
- moving EU/nordic kit over to 9009 format as requested
- switching ergodox to blanks like in GMK laser (I don't like the idea of forcing a layout in such a variable keyboard)

Maybe a kit with F1-F4 + F9-F12 in modifier colours?

Also, I can't speak for everyone but I'd prefer to see a GB without MassDrop if it's possible, they are just not that great for anyone outside of the US and have recently been handling / fulfilling orders suboptimally.

I'm looking forward to this set and wanted to see how the alpha coloring would look, so I threw it into kbrenders.com for a quick render. I didn't use any custom legends and the coloring may not be completely accurate - I just used the GMK colors on keyboard-layout-editor - but hopefully this might give people a better idea of what the set would really look like.

Yeah that's a good point, its a real shame that it seems like any GMK set that gets ran outside of Massdrop seems to struggle with hitting the moq.

Just want to say thank you for doing a set like this. I bought the JTK Photo Studio and some Japanese alphas to make something similar. I wanted to make a board themed around Hatsune Miku. Hope all goes well with your IC.

There isn't really anyone producing topre caps. GMK doesnt make them. Best option is probably to get sliders.

Hi Vala! Would you consider adding a 6u off centered space to the spacebar kit? With the rise in popularity of the true 1800 layout and the uniqey C70 being a thing that exists, I think it would be a good addition

Over 500 votes for the base set, is this still the MD threshold?
I'm afraid because of the popularity of GMK Space Cadet and Serika that this one might be pushed back as a Massdrop ran GB. Either way, still rooting for this set as it matches my next board perfectly and would love to add it to my collection!

As I said on the interest check on Massdrop, as an EE student, I'd kill for this set. Not only is the color scheme exactly what I'm looking for, but this is the perfect match for me in terms of what I'm studying and plan on doing as a career. This keycap set not only will work great for the keyboard I'm in the process of building, but the electronic symbol set could be used to make a custom macro pad for the software I use to design electronics.

This color scheme reminds me of the dominant colors in the Dreadnaught Battlegear T3 armor set from WoW, which happens to be the colors I was using when designing my current profile pic. In short, I love it.

I still think this keyset has so much potential, Cyan Dolch colorways are one of the most popular for a reason and it's been a while since something like that has dropped. I gotta say tho, the novelties make this set whole/unique enough that I don't think it would be a problem to reach MOQ without Massdrop, just need to find a solid vendor.

 I notice all the 1u keycaps that planck requires have been included, except the 1u TAB.

Forgive me if I am wrong.
