Landing Page for all things GMK Nightlight http://gmknightlight.com/






Welcome to my IC!
Taking inspiration from my previous set and recreating it into Cherry Profile for a set that captures the silent, still, and overwhelmingly beautiful essence of moonlit Southern midnights. Its soft, desaturated blue glow translated perfectly to keycaps.

Kitting

Base Kit:



A kit that provides compatibility for the most common to some of the more obscure layouts. Included but not limited to a compatibility of 3 key 40's support, thorough coverage for 60's and also coverage for 65%, 75%, TKL, 1800, and full-size boards.

Novelties:



A novelties kit that can cover the macro column of a 65% and also the first row of a Nav Cluster on a TKL.

Spacebars:



Bars that cover Alice, HHKB, 7u layouts, and accent colors.

Board Renders

pretty sweet! kitting is good, keeps all the essentials. arrows in sb kit is a really nice bonus. novelties play into the set well.

what I take issue with, I don't think the set fits well with the name. Nightlights aren't really blue and light blue. I think a name change might reflect the colors better.

GLWIC

edit: I just realized this was based off SA Nightlight, your other set. that's a tough spot. the name works then, since it's a bit too late to change it now

Really nice shades of blues you picked up here Frosty, amazeballs renders as well, really well done.

The labeling on the 40s keys in the base kit is a bit confusing, but should be understandable enough, solid IC otherwise.

My only concerns are:
  • are you sure those novelties can be manufactured in their current designs?
  • how does the inclusion of accent arrows affect the spacebar kit pricing?

SA nightlight was nice but this blows it away, looking good frosty. I appreciate that you amped it up and didn’t just rerun the exact same set with a new profile.

I think the second R2 novelty key should be different instead of a duplicated key and a Backspace novelty would be better. A duplicated R2 1u key does not seem to fit in any current popular layouts imo. Or you could replace that duplicated key with an ISO enter novelty. Just my 2 cents.

40s in base is great and I really appreciate the comparisons to other sets! Hammerhead was the first thing that came to mind for me but seeing them side-by-side definitely makes me appreciate the slightly paler tones on nightlight :thumb:

Big Thanks to all the support by everyone! Can't respond to everyone but appreciate a ton!

this is absurdly close to pooped in the pool did you get permission

I am so sorry it completely skipped my mind to even ask with such a close set. Please forgive me

As someone who wasn't crazy about SA Nightlight, I love the way this looks for GMK. My  Also thanks for the 40s in base!

My only concerns are:
  • are you sure those novelties can be manufactured in their current designs?
  • how does the inclusion of accent arrows affect the spacebar kit pricing?

These novelties were designed with these limitations in mind but I will look into it again just in case.
My hope is the cost of the arrows doesn't impact the spacebar kit very much but I will not know if that is the case until I get those quotes but until then I will def look into it.

I think the second R2 novelty key should be different instead of a duplicated key and a Backspace novelty would be better. A duplicated R2 1u key does not seem to fit in any current popular layouts imo. Or you could replace that duplicated key with an ISO enter novelty. Just my 2 cents.

Interesting, will definitely look into this and big thanks for bringing this up!

Yeah, funny thing is I also thought of Hammerhead as well while coming up with the set to then go on and look at it and realize its not similar. Thanks for the kind words!

The set is looking nice and is a good improvement over SA Nightlight. The redone novelties and the updated alpha, mod, or accent color make the set quite unique, fixing my original criticism of it being too close to Mizu.  I will be looking forward to seeing this go into group buy.

Just wanted to tell you that this looks sick, I might buy these but do you already know if you'll add a NorDe kit? I'd buy it directly if it would have one so please consider adding one.
And btw do you plan on adding ISO-Enter Novelties? they'd look amazing. Well, GLWIC ig and I hope this comes in group buy with NorDe kit. :thumb:

Hey! Glad to see you like the set! Due to the MOQ associated with GMK sets it is not very likely but I will most definitely try to see what I can do about that! Also re: the ISO novelty, if I'm able to get a novelty that I'm happy with I'll definitely get that done!

Ayy alright back with the GMK.
I passed on SA because I just for the life of me could not figure out what color those mods were going to turn out to be. They seemed a little too green for my liking.

I think the colors this go round appear to work much better (at least these renders do).

You put 40's in base, so I must buy. Good job!
