I would also like to point out that the set has been up on Geekhack for about a week now and I have been working on improving the kits. Here are the changes made so far.

Changes so far:

  • Removed R1 1u Mod Colored Pipe Key
  • Added R3 1.25u Tab key & Second B to Base Kit
  • Reworked Additional kit to provide way more support for 40s/ortho users
  • Added 2x 1.5u Super keys & extra 1u Alt key to the additional kit for tsangan users who would prefer to use these keys
  • Created Spacebar kit that offers support for split space boards

Users mentioned that they are interested in adding accent colored spacebars to the set, I’m a bit hesitant since there are 3 accent colors in the base kit. If I add accent colored bars to the spacebar kit that would add a minimum of 6 extra spacebars to the kit (only offering support for 6.25u & 7u). I don’t really want to make the spacebar kit that big, but if there is enough interest we can figure something out.
