[IC] GMK METROPOLIS 2 - Coming April 02 - 40% Update
« on: Tue, 09 March 2021, 11:54:42 »


Welcome to Metro R2!

It's been long requested, and it's ABOUT DAMN TIME we did it already. Let's GO!

KITS!

same same, but different!
While this is most definitely a round two of this colorway, it doesn't come without some reductions (and ENHANCEMENTS!) of the kits you've come to know and love. I wanted to take a determined step towards evolving this set further, and offering more options to customize and truly make it your own. My hope is that in doing so there is plenty that is new for even those that got in on round 1.

I've done my best to outline the differences in kits below:



BASE
The biggest difference here, is the removal of full UK ISO support.  :'(
Unfortunately the usage on these kits keeps getting smaller, and it is with a heavy heart that I must bid it adieu and offer a paired down 'coverage' kit.

Other notable adjustments are a reworking of the modifier legends to be uniformly single-line. Minus the "Neph Lock" key, which is... precious to me.

R1 Extras: In round 1, we were able to add a small (but appreciated) extras kit into the main kit. Unfortunately this is not available this round, but most of the caps that were offered can be found in the subsequent kits below




BLOCKS
Fairly straightforward but with some modernization! Two 3.00 spacebars have been added, and the 1.75 and 1.50 R4 blanks have been removed. 6.00 off center spacebar has also been removed.



SIGNS
The first of the big adjustments! In R1, the signs served dual purpose as novelties for both the standard kit AND the midnight kit. This left it sort of jumbled, and in an awkward spot. Because the kits have all been reworked, we can have the Signs kit stand proud as the icon accent pack it should have always been. You'll also notice some new faces in here!

This kit is meant to accent certain keys on different layouts, and in fitting with the accents in the base, was never intended to provide direct symmetry. With the update, this kit pairs exceptionally well with the signs pack from round 1



COMPACT
We talked about it in R1, I should have done it in R1, I didn't do it in R1, and it could have made it in R1... I'm sorry R1... But HEY! 40's and compact layout kit is HERE!

Had the great pleasure to step into the 40% discord to bring this kit up to this point.

This should hopefully be an answer to a lot of the feedback that has been posted here, and falls within the same cap count as what was provided previously.

My hope is that this kit redeems this set for those that felt put off by the original one, as well as makes strides to change 40s kits to be more in line with what those users actually use.


OLD KIT
More




TURNPIKE
It wouldn't be metro without a modifier kit! Many MANY of you wanted to see Metro realized as a full custom icon-mod set, and now you can! While this is not exhaustive, this kit provides the coverage needed to give most standard layouts the glow up they deserve.



MIDNIGHT
Midnight, you are not forgotten! A precious few were able to experience this colorway due to the modifier add-on kit required, and I received LOTS of feedback on it. Available now as a standalone kit, this reworked midnight offering brings in the mono novelties that cramped the R1 signs kit, and the accent arrows from the R1 extras.

All sounds a bit too good to be true doesn't it? And you'd be right... so much fun has to come at a cost.You'll have to give up your numpad to do it.



DESKMATS



STANDARD
If it aint broke don't fix it. Back again for all those that missed out!



MIDNIGHT
Pairing alongside the updated Midnight kit, the new Midnight deskmat!

PHOTOS
This time around, we already did a round! This means you can easily see what this set looks like in physical form. I've attached a few photos below, but all you really have to do is browse on r/mk or instagram and you'll be able to see SO MANY of the great photos your fellow keyboardists have taken showing off every side of Metropolis.

Finally! Super excited for this to return and am stoked that there's a forties kit this time. Have some recommendations on that point:

- Please add R2 1.75u backspace and R3 1.5u return for minivan support (I'm assuming the enters already there are mislabeled and are really 1.75u) This is the most popular staggered 40% layout.
- Remove the 2u shift, this is not used on any 40s
- Consider adding support for ut.47/whimsy via R3 1.25u return

To get the kit back down to size after making these additions I would recommend
- Remove non-accent return keys, Control can be used instead to retain the non-accent color
- Change the second 1u shift legend to "Send" to act as a generic for either shift or non-accent return on ortho boards.

Additionally, it would be awesome to see basic 40s support added to the midnight kit! You would just need to add the 3 following keys to that kit.
- R2 1.75u backspace
- R3 1.25u tab
- R3 1.5u enter

Thanks for your consideration!

Thank you for the catch, yes the enters should be 1.75 and have been updated.
As for the other caps, 40s kits are always "just a few more caps" away from capability for something and at some point a line needs to be drawn. That said, if enough feedback presents itself to warrant the addition I'll consider it.

Oh my days...I came in to this hobby quite late so i missed this group buy a while ago and the midnight colourway was the first set that pretty much brought my interest into this hobby. So glad this is a thing again, definitely reserved.

I can definitely understand wanting to avoid support creep. If you want to thin out the 40s kit to fit in those two in order to support more boards, it might be worth dropping some of the accent keys (and the 2u shift that almost no 40s use).

You hit the nail on the head here! For minivan support it really is two keys needing to be added (1.75u R2 backspace and 1.5u R3 enter) and the removal of the 2u shift, non accented enters, and consolidating a couple of keys MatthewDias recommends would mean the kit would stay around the same size as it is now. Hopefully that would mean not too much of a pricing change! One thing to consider as well is that TheKey.Company is planning to soon start selling in stock Minivan kits, so we will likely see a large influx of people trying the layout.

Excited for this set Nephlock! Hopefully we can see some further fleshing out of the 40s kitting to include Minivan support.

+1 for the 1.75u backspace compat kit, its not "just a few more caps". Those are THE 2 (3 but you already have 1 of them) caps a 40s kit has to have.

If you're worried about the added cost of including R2 1.75u Backspace and R3 1.5u Enter, I'd suggest removing some of the accent copies from that kit as a compromise.  Those two keys are the most commonly used righthand mods for 40% staggered boards, currently.

Also, if you remove all the accented Return keys from that kit, I think it reduces the color count of the kit as well, which may additionally optimize the cost:value ratio of the kit.

I know other's have already responded to this but:

To support maximum 40s for minimum keys r2 1.75u backspace and r3 1.5u enter and r3 1.25 tab is the way to go. There's recently been a push for base kit 40s and that's accomplished by adding these three keys.

The 1.75 enter that you already have, whilst nice, is nowhere near as essential since caps lock or control (same row and size) could be used in it's place.

This is not meant as criticism but I was just curious what the reason/design decision was (if any) for the split mod style (red for bottom two rows and yellow for all the others). I really like the color scheme and overall feel of the design but that aspect felt a bit random to me. I know it's probably too late at this point since it's already R2 and it would add so many keycaps but personally I would love for the option to have either full yellow and full red mods, maybe even as an extension kit.

Either way I am excited for the Midnight set and I'll join for novelties as well so I can get those extra accent colors!

Metropolis was probably the first keycap set I saw and wanted to buy, but unfortunately I joined the hobby too late.  Now it seems I will still not be buying it, as the lack of ISO-UK support kills the kit for me.  I understand that I am in a minority, and am glad this set is being run again and hope it is successful.  But it is disappointing to see a set that previously supported ISO-UK drop that support.

I really like the color scheme and overall feel of the design but that aspect felt a bit random to me. I know it's probably too late at this point since it's already R2 and it would add so many keycaps but personally I would love for the option to have either full yellow and full red mods, maybe even as an extension kit.

Either way I am excited for the Midnight set and I'll join for novelties as well so I can get those extra accent colors!

Totally happy to answer this as many might not know. I wanted this set to break from the traditional "alphas one color, mods another" and feature a uniform base color. Which posed a bit of a problem when it came to incorporating the 3 legend colors i wanted. The early Symbolics keyboards featured split mod legends on the two bottom rows, and it felt like the perfect way to give a nod to those early keyboards, as well as further help this set come into its own.
