[IC] GMK Foundation
« on: Mon, 19 April 2021, 10:00:36 »


IC Form Click Here!

A set using only GMK stock colors, with R1 GMK relegendables and non-graphical novelties as child kits. No deskmat.



Kits are subject to change during the IC course.



Wide compatibility to support 40s/Ortho/Alice boards. This is the first iteration of our base kit and we hope this doesn't cost more than $140.



R1 relegendables - 12x modifier color and 8x alpha color.



Bottom row modifiers kit as novelties. Text legends are inspired by the tears, fun and joy of starting your design, and scripting your Interest Check like this one.





G1800 by sGhost
Base kit + Relegendables




Alice by yuktsi

Thank you for your time. Link to IC form here again.

I really like the novelty colors as accents. Perhaps we could get a kit with them with text+icon legends ?

Please consider adding a black novelty for iso enter in the novelty kit since there's only one in base.

are these stock colors? the brown seems pretty close to ursa (so does green, but that's stock right)?

Gargantuan base kit and no 1.5u supers in sight. Also please consider changing Code to Sys/System or Super. It makes no sense.

Alert:

I need to clarify one thing:
Accidentally press Post when I tried to preview the whole IC.  :( :(

Didn't mean to post it yet since some other things aren't ready, such as the IC form.
I deeply apologise for this inconvenience.

Will put IC form immediately.

it seems to me that the goal of the kiting is to offer as much physical compatibility as possible. 40s user may also not be using 100% ideal legends. sacrifices must be made to support others!

**Esc Accent colored kit is supposed to be in the base kit. Render's for the base kit isn't accurate. Sorry for inconvenience, I accidentally pressed Post instead of Preview on create IC post button on GH to see how things look. So sorry about this**

I really like the idea of the novelties basically being an accent mod kit that can be used with other GMK sets. The legends are WS1 right?

It looks quite nice to me.  Refreshing palette with those accents.  It's very close to not having enough contrast on the alphas, however.  I have to admit I'm not 100% sure it would turn out this nice IRL.

It's CP, dear sir.

They are all GMK stock colors. I will post color comparison to other sets (Ursa included) immediately.

Code is supposed to be Super on the base kit. Will post the correct render of first base kit iteration as soon as it's finished.

If I am right, your kit renders are .png with transparent background, I would recommend to change that to a specific background as the outlines of the keys look very rough at the edges and bad masked out.
 The whole set looks good and GLWIC!
