Title: [IC] GMK Daifuku - GB July 30th
Post by: vndytran on Sun, 07 March 2021, 11:22:43

Hi everyone!
Today, we are presenting to you GMK Daifuku. Daifuku (大福餅) is a popular traditional Japanese sweet; it is soft mochi stuffed with sweet red bean paste. A popular spring dessert, Strawberry Mochi (Ichigo Daifuku) is a soft and chewy mochi stuffed with fresh juicy strawberry and sweet red bean paste. Indulge yourself with this beautiful and delicious set! Knowing that, this set is a reference to the Strawberry Mochi. (why would you want any other flavors) It captures the light of a fluffy pink strawberry to a slightly darker sweet red bean paste.

This set is really cute and I look forward to more updates on this set!

Few thoughts I have on the current version:
- The pale pink (mochi) color reads more pale in the render than the pantone color card -- maybe it's the lighting effect? Would be nice if we can see the render on a few different background/keyboards.
- Can we include an extra B in the base set?
- Can we also get a 2u shift key in the base set?
- What is the key between the stepped cap and the extra F/J?
- I think there's a duplicate ~/` key in the base set.

Personally I am not a huge fan of the novelties (idunno what it is but the strawberry peaking out of the two halves of the mochi looks weird to me). But the colorway is very soothing and I am definitely interested in the base set. GLWIC!

Super cute set !

The colors are lovely.

Personally not too keen on some of the novelties like the fork (just seems a bit plain) and the hearts with Mr Daifuku's face (it has a creepy vibe to me for some reason, I would have prefered just regular hearts like the ones on his left and right, and same for the solo heart with his face, I would have prefered a regular heart).
Also with the one next to the 3 hearts, I guess it's 2 Daifuku hugging? But seeing it from the back does feel a bit strange, I see like a daifuku with a nose, that was cut in half.

I love the other novelties and find them super cute.

That is true. Polls right now are leaning on the "separate kit". Separating the kits will make the pricing a bit cheaper.

Just noticed in the IC form there's no option to "No desk-mats" which means people who try to fill out the form have to pick at least one out of the two available designs... It would be nice to add the "No desk-mats" option to reflect the real count better.

Cute set! I'm personally a lot more interested in the darker and more saturated Pantone colours shown above the base kit. I'd love for the actual set to be a bit darker to reflect this, especially the mods. The novelties are a good start! I really love the plain strawberry and the little daifuku with arms and legs, but a lot of the others feel a bit strange and off kilter. Please consider a numpad and f13 in base. Looking forward to seeing where this kit goes!

I absolutely love this colorway! Legit made a geekhack account to comment on it, that's how much I like it haha. I filled out the IC, but I wanted to ask here as well, is there a chance for a latin-only base add-on? Also some more deskmat options, maybe one with sakura patterns like one of your novelties? Also, the pantone picked for red bean shows as quite light on your renders, I'm fine with it either way tbh but I would like to be see the colors rendered on different boards and lighting scenarios.

Maybe you weren't talking about my comment, but I realized my comment was worded a bit poorly.

The novelties I am not so keen on are:

-The enter fork key (just seems a bit plain/not so much in the theme)
-The heart with a face on it (R2 with the single heart, and R4 with the 3 hearts), because I find it a bit creepy/not in line with the rest of the cute novelties. And I would prefer just a simple heart / 3 hearts.
-The hugging (I think) novelty on R4, because considering we see the back only, it's a bit hard to tell what you are looking at imo. I think a hugging daifuku with open arms from the front would be more "readable"

But I love the others ones, especially the daifuku with the little arms and legs as you pointed.


ps: I would love to see a Deskmat with the 2 little daifuku's holding hands/heart that are in the first picture of the IC.

I like the icon only mods. Keeps the set clean.

For the alphas, I note the sublegends are a different colour from the legend. Does this mean that the sublegends are pad printed? Cos GMK can only do double shot, not triple shot as far as I知 aware.

Assuming you run the set, you can't do it with GMK. They don't have the tooling to produce 3 different colors on the same keycap (tripleshot). Only JTK does that at the moment.

Keep in mind MOQs. With 2 base kits you'd need both of them to reach 250. And that's the same with all of the child kits, you'd need each of those to reach 100.

Hi, your base kit needs at least one 1.25u shift key for ISO layout.
_ About ISO keys, please add a R3 1u "\|" key (in alpha color) so the base kit can also cover both US and UK ISO layout (Since you've already had 2 beautiful ISO novelty enter keys).
_ One numpad is enough or you're gonna struggle with MOQ not only for base but also for numpad.
_ Please remove the second B in space bars kit since you have it in base now.

Thanks for the update.

-Considering this is based on a Japanese sweet. I think you should use Hiragana, and not Katakana.
-New novelties look better especially that enter key. But why the kimono on R2? (just looks out of place?) Maybe just a pink strawberry instead?
Still not a big fan of the heart with a face on it, but that's very personal ofc.

I think hiragana subs would fit the set more considering it's a Japanese desert however if you're looking at making new molds for these katakana subs they look really nice and I like these over the already existing molds. I also appreciate the much better novelties from the last ones and the new deskmat added too

I don't know why there's so many kits use katakana sublegends these days. I was interested in this kit until the change to katakana sublegend, there's no practical use of katakana sublegend in daily Japanese typing.

There's a reason Japanese keyboard uses hiragana as a standard sublegend, people type in hiragana 80% of the time.

I really like the updates you've been doing and I really love this set. I would suggest looking at a set like GMK Metaverse to help with some of the sub legends. There's a few things like there's no small kana of ふ on the 2 key and then you're missing「 」on the brackets as well as a few more on that right side. I appreciate replacing the numpad though with kitting for an alice keyboard and letting someone choose if they want a numpad. the 1.75u r3 ctrl is a nice addition also. It's a hard decision to cut some of the 40s keys but the fact is that most people don't use 40s and it'll help cut down and make your base kit price cheaper and be more appealing to everyone. I would say adding a misc kit that has some of the 40s keys and odd sized keys in general is the best way to go. Keep up the great work and I look forward to the GB to purchase this set.

Hi! Thank you so much for the feedback, working on it right now. I am also increasing the visibilities of the sublegends :)

Please consider all icon mods or all text mods, the mix right now is really jarring.

I must say, I disagree with this. This design is no different from many other popular sets like 9009, 8008, Bingsu, Botanical, modern dolch etc.

Can I propose you reach out to the designer for GMK inukuma which is running right now? He just made custom hiragana sublegends, which I think are nicer than the ones others are running. If he agrees and u can use his hiragana sublegends, that would be very nice.

I really love the new alpha color it looks so good. the sub legends also look great now! The dark novelties really pop now with the new strawberry color and it's pleasant on the eyes. I'm not the best for suggestions on actual kitting but if you're able to talk to someone who has had experience running sets I would 100% ask about costs and what's the best way to do what you want with the base kit. I forgot to say this in my last post but you should add an F13 key into one of the kits since more tkl's are coming out with it, specifically the new nk87 and KFE that ran not long ago.

Still curious about the kimono novelty on R2, just seems completely random?

I think even just doing the same strawberry that is on R2 but in the "strawberry color" would be more coherent.

gf is loving the colors, but i'm not 100% sold on the kitting or novelties. one of those situations where i actually need the numpad (and never rock alice layout).

i'll agree the new novelties are better than b4 but i think a few could still be improved. mainly the heart face key, it just looks a bit misplaced. maybe a non strawberry-related key for some variety? i'll fill out the IC form later tonight  :thumb:

I absolutely love these colors! Wow, really incredible work on that part!

I do have... a few, possible requests :)

First is a 1.75u Super key. Mac users really appreciate this very small  addition, because we flip our alt and super keys. Not have a 1.75u super key always makes me sad :(

Second... these deskmats. I feel like they could use some love :)

Third, accent colored Spacebars. That is a really common part of a Spacebars kit that almost every set offers. In general I think you should really just have a Spacebars kit rather than including some of the standard parts in the base kit to reduce the base kit price overall.

As far as hiragana vs Latin... most sets I致e seen recently offer the alphas as a kit rather than a full second base kit. I would personally suggest hiragana sub legends in the base kit, and offer a Latin alphas kit.

Thank you for designing this incredible set!

Added new Switch Collab

Love the looks of the switches, but I wish u chose a better switch. I知 really not a big fan of non-ink gateron switches. They really aren稚 兎nd game level. Gateron ink recolour (like the current 8008 inks) or a JWK recolour would have been better in my opinion. Is the choice of switch fixed?

On the keycaps, I wonder if it would cost more to add a 1.75u enter. I know the 1.75u control suffices, but an enter key would be nice(r). I know the minivan layout is already fully supported, but I hope other 40s layout like the one on Adelie is also supported (with the correct key for enter). Thanks!

Post by: Ciantha on Sat, 22 May 2021, 01:55:33
I'm a bit sad that there won't be a latin base kit.

That said I have a couple of questions about the alt alpha kit.
1, Have you considered adding in an extra tab key? These are often in alt alphas because that way you could cover two keyboards (one HHKB, one standard). It makes for a better value for your alt alpha kit in my opinion.
2, As far as I can tell you're doing UK iso both for JP basekit and latin alpha. However for the latin alphas you seem to be missing the '@ key and have a pipe key (which would be terminal ISO) instead.
