[IC] GMK Diner (all vendors confirmed)
« on: Fri, 30 April 2021, 20:51:44 »




Ketchup or mustard?

Inspired by the seemingly-mandatory diners present in most of the shows we watched growing up. Wouldn't it be cool to deck out your keyboard like it was actually part of your favorite 90's sitcom? It would, it would be totally cool. Proud to introduce to you GMK Diner.





Base and modifier novelties on a RAMA M60a.



Base, spacebars and modifier novelties on a RAMA Koyu.



Base, spacebars, modifier novelties and macro novelties on a Vulcan Maja.



Base kit on a KeliumWorks Pillow65.

Base Kit

A simple yet complete base kit covering your typical 60-100%, including HHKB and Alice layouts. ISO minimal 40s support included.




Modifier Novelties

A variety of novelties for escape, enter, ISO enter, control, win, alt and fn keys.




Macro Novelties

4 columns and 5 rows of novelties – yours to mix and match.




NorDe




Spacebars





268383-1



Deskmats

Colors

Left to right: RAL 5007, RAL 5000, RAL 3028 and RAL 1023. 2 decades ago these would've been the brightest colors you can imagine, but the many many years of sitting in a diner had a fading effect on them. Is that grease I smell?

Your iso support is off. Choose between terminal or UK, I wouldn’t do both. Also, why the second 2u space in spacebars kit? Glwic!

Could we get three key 40s (r2 1.75u backspace, r3 1.25u tab, r3 1.5u enter) added to the base kit?

Love the colors here, reminds me of Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network show representations of diners.

could the split bars in the spacebars set be RAL 500* and then you keep the accent yellow 6.25u and 7u?

in for it though

VERY well formatted IC, but agreed with others your kiting could use some work

Consider adding R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn to support blockered 65/75% boards

My guess, based on the texture is that the answer is going to be yes: Please make the background of the Pillow65 render into a deskmat and you'll have my wallet.

Very interesting concept, glad to see a set going outside of the "typical" mod/alpha/accent color blocking, this one surely does not look like GMK Olivia.

even if the colorway isn't for me, it is a great, well presented concept.
definitely a nice and fresh idea, good luck with IC.

To everyone asking for adding keys to the base kit: With GMK's pricing being what it is recently I'm very careful making sure it's as light as possible. I'm balancing compatibility with base kit price. Either make an expensive set covering most keyboards but affordable by few, or try to make it a little bit more affordable by sacrificing a little compatibility. I'll keep listening though, but would need a stronger signal.

[...] why the second 2u space in spacebars kit? Glwic!

My bad, will remove.

My guess, based on the texture is that the answer is going to be yes: Please make the background of the Pillow65 render into a deskmat and you'll have my wallet.

That's the plan! (to take your wallet, but also to make it a deskmat)

Very interesting concept, glad to see a set going outside of the "typical" mod/alpha/accent color blocking, this one surely does not look like GMK Olivia.

Shame on you for making me snort.

could the split bars in the spacebars set be RAL 500* and then you keep the accent yellow 6.25u and 7u?

That sounds incredibly boring, not at all something you'd see at your local burger joint.

I'll buy the macro kit

Thank you my feathered friend. You'd look good on our menu.

Re: Expanding the base kit: If you want to chat about it some more, feel free to join my new Discord server. Again, I'm open to it, but I want this to be a more affordable GMK set.

Just removed the second 2u spacebar, and I reshuffled the macro novelty legends (so that people who buy both novelty kits don't end up with duplicates).

+1

To everyone asking for adding keys to the base kit: With GMK's pricing being what it is recently I'm very careful making sure it's as light as possible.

How much additional cost do those three keys add? I'm not trying to be facetious -- I'm legitimately curious, because I do not have a good idea of what these key additions cost.

If the base kit add is too high, would you consider a 40s child kit?

Just added some quick renders of the deskmats, gonna look at those 3 keys for 40s next (feedback was consistent, so let's do it).

What did the Daddy tomato say to the Little tomato

"Ketchup or you'll be late for school!"
 



What did the Mommy mustard say to the Little mustard

"Remember, child. Ketchup is always  tastier than you."
