I am trying to introduce only the necessary keys, to keep the pricing low as possible. Yes the 1.5 mod keys will be also row 5.

But wouldn't it be better to just make 3 sets??

I really would not recommend the TA setup, as it annoyed a lot of people who use R4, as for fullsize/TKL keyboards it gave a mismatched bottom row.
It had :
Full R5 1.5u bottom row + R4 1.25 keys, but no R4 arrow keys or numpad keys
I would suggest one of the following :
Full R5 1.5u bottom row + Full R4 1.25u bottom row
Full R4 1.25u bottom row + R5 1.5u keys + R5 arrow keys (only the three bottom row ones)

Definitely not a copy as i designed Carbon by picking just the colors i appreciate. I see your picture first time.

Just like Carbon SA, the colours are great, but they also remind me a lot of Skidata and Cherry OG (I don't want to call you a copycat or anything), which I have both.
Sankart wrote:Regarding the add-ons you may want to keep in mind, that the JTK Sophomore and Gmk Skidata GB just happened, so Black/Blue on Orange probably won't be too popular I guess. If you got some crazy Idea how to spice this set up a little I'm probably in.
Sankart wrote:If one Add-On is another Modkit, would you also split the base-kit into mods and legends, like Royal Alpha Typewriter GB did?
Sankart wrote:Since SP-Carbon was really successful, do you think an international legends add-on could tip? I guess a MOQ of 150/250 will be quite impossible to reach, but maybe they show some mercy since all the legends are pretty standard, no novelties or different colours? 75 may be reachable, since this would be the first GMK drop with international legends (?) there should be at least some demand? I know that I'd be in for a set, maybe two.
I just looked at the Royal Alpha GB managed to get the modset with ~40 buyers into production. If a MOQ that low would be possible with an international set I'm sure it'd meet MOQ! Please look into that, as a new era of int. GMK sets would be absolutely glorious!
Sankart wrote:Also you may want to include an alternative to the winkeys? Personally I don't have any problems with them, but every GMK-drop got some people complaining about them...
Look at Royal Alpha Typewriter MOQ. Overall none of its kits reached the moq.
Base Kit - 133 / Unlock - 150
Green Modifiers Kit - 123 / Unlock - 150
Light Gray Modifiers Kit - 47 / Unlock - 150
However MD allowed it to be succesfull. Now they are sitting on spare kits. Hope they will sell it.
mohitgarg in the MD discussion
Just got message that MassDrop did manage to work out with GMK to produce all the kits that were on offer.
The only thing those keysets share are orange color but not the shades and color way.
