My thoughts exactly. I only wish I didn't miss out on the GMK Terminal group buy.

Yeah I was close to going ahead with GMK terminal but I know I'll like red much more than green.

Any chance of Icon modifiers?

I am working on getting communication straightened out with GMK. My contact wont be back from vacation until Monday though. I will update the thread as I get more communication.

Maybe if you posted something more relevant and stop trying to troll I wouldn't have to be so mean. This is an Interest Check not a place for insults.

love the render so far! red on black is just instant love for me, vivid but not flashy. I would love it even more if we can get icon modifiers  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

The more I think about it the more I love the icon mods. I think it will add a nice and clean aesthetic. I think I am going to go with them.

Would anyone be interested in icon-only mods? That's usually my preferred choice when it comes to modifiers because I think they make the keyset look a lot cleaner and more cohesive than icon+text mods

With ANSI, do you prefer text or hybrid modifiers?

I like Text modifiers.  The thing is I use a lot of OG boards, so seeing icons on ANSI just doesn't make sense to me, but I'll buy this set whatever it ends up like.

Was just wondering about the status of GMK Forge today! The color V1 does look a little orange in their keycap sample picture... I wonder how P3 or RO2 would look instead.

Yes, it's orange to my eyes too. Nothing like the blood red in your original mockup and in the renders.

I am considering that as well. I am going to see if we can get something like P3 put out.

P3 will definitely look nice I think. Keep it up! I am super excited about this set. Makes me want to see something similar set done with purple.

Did you decide against an R3 1.25u cap in the end? Would really love to see it make it into the final tally!

I like it, like the GMK terminal with the simple dark base with bold font colours is really sharp. Wouldn't mind if you sneaked in a saber novelty there though ;D

Personally I'm not fond of the novelties in this set. One is I don't find the graphics attractive and two is R4 1.25u only, which is very prohibitive given that other sets have R1 1u novelty caps and I just stick them to F-row and the nav cluster. Other than that, love the base set and accent kit. The renders are to die for, just look at the red under glow and the set just gives off that evil, sinister chill  :))

Sorry for my noobness but do other sets normally run their novelties in 1u form? Does the community think I should run them in 1u instead of 1.25u?

Looks good. And it would look pretty good on my Orion.


I think I know why the renders looked like SkiData though. I have a Red on Black Cherry logo novelty key and in certain light it almost looks orange.

I'm not saying that R4 1.25u is bad for novelties. It is simply my personal preference to also have R1 1u novelty caps. Like GMK Yuri that's running on MD or the upcoming GMK Laser by MiTo. Both sets have R1 1u AND R4 1.25u novelties.

If I was going to use a keyset with a backlit keyboard I would want transparent/translucent alphas so that my legends match the backlight (as depicted in some of the OP renders).  It would also be nice in case I ever decided to use the same set with another color scheme.

Personally, I don't like backlighting so I'm all for the proposed colors.
