[IC] GMK Murasaki | Novelties revealed!
« on: Sat, 21 August 2021, 12:09:44 »
Welcome to GMK Murasaki IC Thread!




“A warrior is worthless unless he rises above others and stands strong in the midst of a storm.”


The color violet, or murasaki, is the color of warriors and symbolizes nobility and strength.

For quite sometime i wanted to create a minimal yet catchy keycap set using some stock GMK colors and this is my attempt
A bit unique side of it is that the mods are lighter then alphas (usually you see dark mods and light alphas)
As an inspiration i've chose to go with japanese and japanese warrior culture in particular because in my humble opinion simplicity is in it's core
I personally not tired of japanese sublegends but i bet a lot of people are - for those i've prepared a latin base option
If there is will be enough interest in this project generally




To note: Some of you may see it differently due to phone screen / monitor settings
and even more different due to render lightning and shadows, i hope its understandable

Not my cup of tea, but not bad. I'd recommend 3 key 40s support > current 40s kit. GLWIC!  :thumb:

Should scroll lock and num lock be one-line like the rest of nav keys?

It shouldn't, if you take a closer look print screen and pause is not in one line it has a front-face printing like on old gmk sets that i like

Why are r1 PgDn and End in the base kit if you have a separate numpad kit?

UK-ISO is not possible in this kit due to hiragana sublegends
But there is a chance of Latin Base go ahead and leave your vote in IC Form

Moulds for Hiragana sub-legends in UK ISO keys do exist, they are used in GMK Yuru and GMK a.

why did you name the hiragana sub legend base kit kit 'Japanese base kit'?

Consider renaming the base kit name. "Japanese Base Kit" doesn't sound/seem/look right here.

Also, might as well put mosaic on the novelties kit instead of just blurring it. If you get what I mean ;)

For full UK ISO support, the key [<>ろ] should be changed to [\|ろ], as in those other sets.

Surely we could get * instead of × then?

Double-Shot TKL Base-Kit with UK-ISO support, accents, second B, F13 and 2U Shift

The -_ほ key is missing a sublegend in the top-right corner (correct: -_ほー).
Also, the sublegend in the top-right corner of the 0)わを key should be the same size as the below it, and larger than the , , etc. sublegends that are to its left.
See GMK βeta, as well as this guide, for a reference.

The \|む keys should ideally not have a yen symbol in the top right. See here for a thorough explanation.

Also, if you're dead set on including ISO-UK keys in this kit, then you will need to change the R4 <>ろ key to either \| or \|ろ, for correct legend compatibility.

Pretty neat!

The sword novelty triggers me though, hahaha.  Typically you want to display katanas on a horizontal stand like that blade-side up =P
