Dots would be amazing for raise and lower keys on an ortho board.

For all kinds of things, actually. The dots would also fit on a Tada68 with standard layout and three 1u ALT/CTRL/FN keys.

Also for VIM arrow keys :)

RGBYP, Mac OS and Specialities kits fixed due to duplicates.
Thanks to Oblotzky.

More like RBYP... I feel like green is underutilized in this set now, personally I prefer it to yellow. Oh well, I can't really gripe too much.

This set keeps getting better and better. Building my Preonic now and really looking forward to slapping this set on here.

You make a point. I only use green for Return right now. Could still find another slot 🤔
Like Menu or arrows…

Just made a geekhack account just for this. I need to know when is this coming out or the prices to make my decision between this set and another one. Is it going to be released before end of June ?

Hi, thank you for your interest.
We received manufacturing price, we need to calculate final price.
Samples took time to be produced, so the GB would probably start end June or the first week of July hopefully. Since everything is custom, we got a lot of stuff to check to ensure that the quality of the set will be great.

Does it mean manufacturer has been decided?

It should be Keycreative, unless the samples are garbage. But looking at other sets they produced it should be fine, we'll see very soon :)

Hi!

I just received Samples from Zfrontier :)











I have some stuff to tweak, and I have to talk with Keycreative in order to have more accurate colors.
The legends seems sharp, we're kinda happy with that.

The GB should start in a few days :)

This looks awesome! Btw, if the kits aren't absolutely final yet, the spacebar kit could offer much better compatibility for split spacebar boards by simply adding a 1.25u blank.

Nice suggestion! I'll probably add that key :)

I love the weirdos. If only this set was WoB or any light color on dark caps, but since it's gonna be dye-sub it has to be dark on light. :(

For the Preonic I'll need just the alphas and the ortho kit, right?

I'll probably end up with the weirdo alpha kit, ortho, and the Mac kit.

I made an account just for this. I really like the set.

One question: if you're still able to make changes to the run, could you add a 1U caps lock key to the ortho kit (or specialties/forties)? I'm planning on doing either a custom layout XD75 or a custom 5x13 ortho, but that key doesn't seem to exist in any of the sets, and since the ortho set seems to be tailored to the Planck/Preonic that key is absent.

Anyways, love the set. Been following it for a while. Definitely going to be picking it up.

Do you know if I could change the shipping address I put in once a shipping date is established? The address I used will work, but depending on when it ships, I have a different preferred address.
