Proposed Kits

(https://i.imgur.com/14a7dyO.jpg)

Lux features a large Core kit, which provides layout coverage for standard and winkeyless full-size, 1800, TKL, 75%, 65%, FC660-like layouts, or 60% keyboards. Some notable inclusions are 1.00u, 1.25u, and 1.50u Lux keys; accent Esc, Enter, and Arrows; convex 2.00u, 2.25u, and 2.75u keys and second B for ergonomic keyboards such as the TGR Alice, or AI03 Meridian. The kit also features UK-ISO layout support as well as a second Tab key so you can reuse some of the modifiers if needed.

Additionally, we are also offering a space bar kit that extends Luxís layout support by including two 6.00u spacebars, allowing us to cover HHKBs, Gokís 7V, and Cherry G80-1800 keyboards. The kit also includes accent space bars for standard and split keyboards.

Q: Why does the core kit include X but not Y?
A: Because I thought that including X was more preferential than including Y.

Q: I don't like the Lux keycaps.
A: That's not a question. I like them, and they are not going away.

Q: Icon mods?
A: No.

Q: [Sublegends] kit? [Alternate alphas] kit?
A: No and no. Let's keep it simple and easy.

Q: Why Alice layout coverage on the base kit?
A: Because there's like 12 clones of that board on the IC stage and it's just a B. The split space bars can also be used by other keyboards.

Q: Colemak, Ergodox, Norde?
A: No.

Q: Forties kit?
A: No.

Q: Why two tabs instead of X?
A: It's a chunky base kit, and this would allow you to reuse the leftover mods.

Very interested in this set, but gold-colored plastic often looks pretty bad when attempted (see gold-colored Gundam models). Could you elaborate more on the color you will be using?

Unlikely, but any chance of accent colored alphas? This would allow us to reuse the leftover mods like you envisioned in the Q&A too.

Would be in nonetheless. Thanks for picking this up @Zambumon!

Q: Forties kit? Minivan?
A: Possible, but unlikely. No.

I'm really loving this. However, I'm an ortho guy. I understand not every set can have an ortho kit; I can get creative. I use a Preonic - with SkIIdata I used numpad "-" for Backspace, End for R2 Tab (there was an R3 Tab that I put on R3).

My point is, the (only) two caps I would really need for the board not to look too weird are R4 1u Enter (yellow, please) and R4 1u Shift. Is there any chance these two keys could be added? I get it that this might not work for every ortho user, but I think it would be better than nothing.

Dear fellow ortho users, what do you think?

I think there's too many "you're different, GTFO" vibes for me. Z's of course entitled to his opinion and reasons, but adding 2 or so keys to sorta kinda make it work is not something I'm interested in. GL with the IC/GB, Z.

Yes, but that's only because everyone here was following the original lux for a reason. Now that Zambs has almost changed it up entirely, is it any wonder that people are lamenting that fact?

Been waiting for this set! I am hoping that the accent is more of a gold instead of a yellow or the word gold to describe it really shouldn't be used. The legend colors of GMK Red Sam are to me clearly gold and would love to see the accent and legend color be closer to that. And just throwing my name in the hat for a 40's kit :)

UK ISO and split spacebars in the base kit make this a must for me. I also like the fact that it's not as black as GMK's CR colour.

Dear fellow ortho users, what do you think?

Initially with the first IC I was 100% in a few months back, but this point brings a lot to the table for comparability for boards I've been using as of late. Please consider!

Also please consider bringing back red  ;D I personally think the gold accent keys is just way too much yellow. If we are trying to sell the set as being gold there needs to be as little yellow surface area as possible. I don't really understand what was more important than the red accents, it feels like you sacrificed theming/colors for compatibility which IMO are two completely different areas of a design to be adjusting simultaneously.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Lux

So the black isnít black but dark grey / not really black. Any idea if itís comparable to epbt ďblackĒ? Since thatís called black but really isnít that black.

And is it yellow? Gold? Comparable with Phantom yellow or Red Samurai gold?

See Zambs above comments dismissing people for the color change because it's "his take on the design." It's not just because of the renders and he has literally said it's not black anymore because cr is too dark..

OK, I wasn't commenting on the "black" (I actually personally prefer a lighter shade). The yellow looks pretty golden to me... Just compare this to PBT Hive (also to run soon, which is unfortunate).

The yellow looks significantly different though too. It was originally listed and rendered as Pantone 16-0836 TPX (https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/16-0836-TPX), which is a much darker gold than the bright yellow we have now.

You can do whatever you want. This is your set now I guess. Just don't be surprised when people get upset that you completely changed the set they where originally interested in. This is a nice looking set, and if had called it anything besides "Lux" I don't think there would be as much backlash. However, as it is, everyone who was interested in a black and gold set are now being shoehorned into a gray and yellow set. Glwgb, but this is now longer GMK Lux imo.

Actually, the darkest color RAL offers is RAL 9005 - Jet Black (https://www.ralcolorchart.com/ral-classic/ral-9005-jet-black), which is actually darker than cr, lol. I fail to see how RAL has anything to do with Lux's color change, but nice red herring I guess.

- That's RAL Classic, not RAL Design (000 15 00 is from the Design palette), which is the one GMK and I have been used RAL D8 for the last two years with excellent results, so I will stick to it.
- On your previous comment you said that the set is gray. I guess I will have to ask GMK if we can use Vanta Black, because otherwise it won't be real black.

You never specified it had to be from RAL Design in your original comment. It was never even stated that you picked this RAL in the op. You just said it's the darkest color they have which is still false.

Nope, I would just prefer if it where a darker black like the cr originally shown. Also my main concern is still the gold color which now looks bright yellow.

GMK uses RAL design colors to colormatch, so that's the best thing to look at when asking for colors

Do you already have specific RAL colours in mind for this? Your post describes it as a take on "an elegant and luxurious black and gold GMK set" but right now it's just looking very yellow to me instead of golden, I feel like a more mustardy/desaturated/darkened yellow would suit the theme better.

GMK uses RAL design colors to colormatch, so that's the best thing to look at when asking for colors

Good to know. That was never specified.

and something tells me you don't have a physical book of chips to look at, whereas i know for a fact zambu does

Nope. All I have is a render with significantly different colors from the original set and Zumbumon saying he intentionally changed the design.

So the black isnít black but dark grey / not really black. Any idea if itís comparable to epbt ďblackĒ? Since thatís called black but really isnít that black.

And is it yellow? Gold? Comparable with Phantom yellow or Red Samurai gold?

@Zambu; any chance you could answer this? Especially concerning the yellow. I'm considering buying the set to go on my J01 and have seen both Red Samurai accents on it (look really good) and Phantom yellow accents on it (looks ****).

They are renders. Zambumon says it will be gold, so I'd wait for some colour samples before writing it off ;)

See Zambs above comments dismissing people for the color change because it's "his take on the design." It's not just because of the renders and he has literally said it's not black anymore because cr is too dark..

OK, I wasn't commenting on the "black" (I actually personally prefer a lighter shade). The yellow looks pretty golden to me... Just compare this to PBT Hive (also to run soon, which is unfortunate).

The yellow looks significantly different though too. It was originally listed and rendered as Pantone 16-0836 TPX (https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/16-0836-TPX), which is a much darker gold than the bright yellow we have now.

Yeah the old gold color is way better, IMO.
This is just GMK Mustard

Not actually a bad looking color from what I can see on a computer. I've always been a fan of 'Harvest Gold' (and really nonmetallic gold in general).

Actually RAL 080 70 60 is a bit less yellow a bit less yellow than his renders seem to suggest. And Ink Black is indeed a very dark black (both images with a CR cap for reference).

Leopold does high quality PBT doubleshots, and were positive when I reached out to them to do something. I didn't dig much further considering the molds they currently have and the MoQ - but there are more players out there.
AFAIK it's not uncommon for korean enthusiasts to use leopold caps on their kustoms.

IMO very complementary colors, simple kit designs with massive base kit compatibility... basically this kit is everything I want it to be, and with simple two color aesthetics, which really make me happy. Count me in for a set.

Best example of how the big wigs other than biip run interest checks.

Q. The other set had red accents. Are you considering bringing back red?

A. ďYes Iím considering it. And I already finished the considering and decided no. More important things to do. Like find ways to retire off my color picking! Thank you Kindergarden teacher for that crayon box not so long ago.

Aside the "Lux" keycaps on the Core kit, I have been thinking about having some Rama caps, since these have worked very well in the past and it's always a pleasure to work with the Rama Works team.

Hey MdotMaxson,

I don't think this set is manly enough for you either.

Have a great day enjoying your DSA Magical Girl set.

That's up to personal preference, Infinikey Hive keycaps have a slight blue-ish vibe and the legends are dyesubbed on the PBT, while GMK Lux will have doubleshot ABS legends.
