[GB] DCS Solarized Dark - Shipping Now!
« on: Tue, 09 November 2021, 20:00:14 »
DCS Solarized Dark

As someone who was a programmer for many years the IDE theme Solarized Dark has always been a favorite of mine and I am also a big fan of the feel and sound of DCS profile, so I set out to combine these two into the keyset DCS Solarized Dark.  While I know that there have been Solarized Dark themed keysets in other profiles (GMK, XA, DSS) previously, I have felt that none of them quite captured the IDE themes spirit completely for me.

The Backstory
Solarized Dark is an IDE theme variant of Solarized both created by Ethan Schoonover originally for VIM.  It has been ported to many IDE's over the years and features a teal base with grey text and a multitude of colors for syntax highlighting.  I really wanted to create a set that when I looked down at my keyboard, made me think immediately of the IDE theme. The biggest question I had was do I use custom colors or stock colors.  Now SP has a wide range of custom colors, that can get you very far, but could it get me far enough?  After sitting down, comparing the IDE to the SP sample chips, tweaking, and compiling the options, and talking to Ethan about what he thought of the colors, tweaking some more, getting more feedback, I feel that using stock colors would give a pretty fair representation of the IDE theme, while also creating the parameters of the project as "Solarized Dark in DCS profile using the SP Stock Colors as the Color Palette"

To find out more about the solarized IDE theme and the concept behind it please visit this link.


Group Buy Date: 11/11 to 12/12



Manufacturer: Signature Plastics
Material: ABS
Profile: DCS


Estimated Shipping Date: Q2 2022

Early Bird Bonus:
At ThocKeys (and some of the other vendors), we will be offering a special early bird bonus.  Anyone who buys the base kit between November 11th and November 14th will get the VIM kit for free!  I feel VIM is a very important part of the identity of Solarized (Dark) since that is where it was born, so to celebrate this, and because 11/11 is my birthday, I figured I would give a gift to everyone who supports this set early.

Confirmed vendors taking part: ThocKeys(Nov 11 - Nov 14), Hand Engineering (Nov 11 - Nov 14), Rectangles (Nov 11 - Nov 14), BaseKeys (Nov 11 - Nov 14), Rebult (Nov 11 - Nov 14), AlphaKeys.ca (Nov 11 - Nov 14), Keygem (Nov 11 - Nov 14) please check with your regional vendor to see if they are taking part.

First and foremost I wanted to say thank you first of all to Ethan Schoonover for creating the Solarized Dark theme and his feedback, time and support that he gave me on this endeavor.
Pwade, thank you for not killing me when I came to you asking you to match 11 colors for the renders and being patient with me as we tried to get them right.
Fooblitzky for the awesome DCS models that made these renders possible.
Lewis Flude for your support and enthusiasm when I shared this project as well as for the Neue model to render the set on.
The members(both current and former) of the Ratden discord for their support and energy while I threw various ideas at them.
James from AKB for doing absolutely nothing in regards to this project.
Thank you Capsy, for supporting the set and being a bro.
OCM, Langelandia, Urbantheiii, Jae, Quakemz, Noxygen and so many others, thanks for being positive people and for bending an ear when I want to discuss ideas or projects.
Thank you Dededecline and NoPunIn10Did for kitting assistance (especially 40s and International)

Just scrolling through to look at the pics before reading anything I thought the force curve was a deskmat to go with the set. So if you need one, there you go.

Set looks great!

Dropping the 1.5u R2 Delete, apparently because one guy "hates it" was not great, some of us do use that key, or are "forced to".
Deletions from IC to GB should always be highlighted. Yeah, I know the Mono Mods still has it.
Still a nice set though, GLWGB.

Hi all,
Apologies for the delays with this - We had a few team members in transit this week so are a little delayed on VIM stuff.

See below from team member CAZ

"We have had many enquiries regarding DCS Solarised Dark Early Bird Discount occuring at some international vendors. Due to this we have decided to offer it to you retroactively and with an extension.

From now until 12:00am AEDT on Wednesday the 17th the VIM kit will be automatically discounted at checkout if you also have a Base kit in your cart.

For those who have ordered already, we will be manually updating your orders so please be on the lookout for those being updated.

Apologies for any confusion."

I'm going to have the legendary Dvorcal put up a graph but I'm very happy to announce that in just a handful of days the Base kit, as well as VIM, Whitespace, Relegendables, Classic Accents, Ortho+40s and Kingsize bar kits all have hit MOQ and I'm confident that the rest of kits will get there.

I want to thank everyone who has supported the set so far by buying a set, or even just discussing the set and spreading the word. I especially want to thank all of the vendors for their support of this, without them this wouldn't be possible.

My plan is to buy out the switches as long as it gets a bit closer to have in stock, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

International will get made, I'll make sure if it even if I buy it out.

it will feel the same as any other DCS ABS set, you can always buy one and try it if you're not sure. it is readily available on SP's website.

it's a much more effective test than any adjective or anecdote

If you mean the switches, they have the same stem as the Gateron Silver Blizzard, so long poll(so early bottom out), somewhat rounder bump that is around the same size as a T1 but less sharp with little to no pretravel. They also have a lighter spring weight than the silver Blizzards by about 10g, and since they are long springs they have a bit snappier return.

If you mean the keyset, then yeah what puddsy said.

The feel is potentially very good. Well-made DCS has a soft, mildly-velvety texture at first. It's slightly gripping, but mostly pretty smooth. (But not the kind of smooth that comes from shined, worn-in keycaps.)

The DCS Sleeper keycaps (I have the accents) felt pretty good, nicer than the worn-in DCS I have been using.

The only problem, for me, is that the materials may affect feel. I have a NIB Solarized Dark set, and I touched a keycap to test it yesterday, and it wasn't as velvety as GMK Honeywell. So materials may be a factor. Honeywell is made from stock GMK colours, and I doubt GMK Solarized Dark was. So DCS Solarized Dark may feel a little more plasticy than some other DCS sets, but that's speculation. If it's anything like DCS Sleeper, it will be good.

Anyway, good DCS feels and types similar to good GMK.

That is one good international kit! I was about to finish with GBs, but this looks really good, especially in DCS   :-X

Placed my order. Excited about finally getting to try out DCS (and in a colorway I love, too)!

I want to thank everyone for the support the set has received so far, we are now in the last 48 hours (or less) and I wanted to say that between last few days of sales and extras that I'm confident all kits will be made.

Thank you again and I'm very excited for everyone to get this set in their hands.

Gratulations to make it past MOQ. I really enjoy the look of this set!

This is rather fitting for the IC thread but since that thread is closed:
Does International only support half DE because of missing molds or is there another reason?
Are the Whitespace keys actually concave? Does the majority actually like their split spacebars concave? I can't fathom this for normal split spacebars, or is this set meant for ergodox layouts?

Thank you everyone for the support. We couldn't have done this without all of you and the wonderful international partners.

I've submitted the totals to SP, so we are just waiting for invoices.

Wanted to let everyone know that the Gateron SolDarks have started shipping to some of the vendors from Gateron so if you ordered just the switches you may see shipping for these soon.
