Title: [IC] GMK Unit-01 - Rev. 03
Post by: FU11.META1 on Fri, 26 April 2019, 07:49:13
Welcome to the IC for GMK Unit-01. Inspired by the stunning colors and form of EVA-01 from the groundbreaking anime known as Neon Genesis Evangelion. This Set features bold neon colors, hiragana legends and a minimal icon layout that will suggest the aesthetic of an HUD display inside of a giant mecha. Put yourself in the cockpit and turn your keyboard into a machine worthy of saving the world.

The main goal of this kit is to bring a unique keyset to the table that offers a wide variety of compatibility. By keeping all modifier keys symbols it allows for more alternative layouts.

The set will be made with 2 custom colors and 4 stock GMK colors

Alpha Keys: 267 C
Alpha Legends: 802 C
Mod Keys: CR
Mod Legends: 802 C
Accent Keys: 802 C
Accent Legends: 267 C
Berserk Alpha Legends: RO2
Mod Type-S Red + Orange Legends: RO2 + V2

It may just be an issue with the renders, but I feel like going with a slightly lighter grey for the alphas would help the purple legends pop a bit more; right now they feel a little bit muddy in terms of contrast. Overall I think this is a neat idea but the alphas could use a *little* bit more refining and dialing-in.

The original inspiration for the set is from a vintage Japanese Godzilla toy box.
(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/JgsAAOSwtBdaZ53i/s-l1600.jpg)
Not my image but I do own it. I played around with these colors for a while until I finally settled on the neon green, violet, red combination and then realized I just made a very EVA looking set. The colors definitely lend themselves to the NGE theme and I was already planning on some novelties. In my opinion NGE is pretty much anime kaiju anyways.

+1 for the brighter gray.

How would the mods look with neon yellow instead of green?

Yellow and violet is getting too close to Lakers/Vikings for me but I will see what it looks like.

I'm into it, think the purple on the legends can be brighter. Overall, great job!

I will consider a lighter grey before a brighter purple, GMK 2B maybe? I really love that deep violet color and the space bars would look amazing.

Overall I think this is a neat idea but the alphas could use a *little* bit more refining and dialing-in.

This could be an issue with my renders or like others have said the grey might be too dark. I'm very new to 3D rendering so the lighting might not be perfect.

Ooohh man this is a pretty sick set. Judging from the name the novelties are gonna be pretty radical too, yeah?  ;D

Thanks! Yes, right now my ideas are:
-Big eyes to make your keyboard look like a Kaiju
-Some NGE themed
-Alert symbols
-That thicc Japanese type

Man I would dig some red on purple alphas like in your avatar

Will take this into consideration, It would be pretty cool, although a whole set of that might be a bit eye bleeding.

Agree 100%, legends are a little hard to read now. I think a little lighter on the Alphas could help a lot.

GMK 2B might still be too dark for the purple to pop out. Below is an example of Epbt Slate, which used a similar color to B2 for alphas. You can see the comparison in the first picture.
The second picture is actually the same color but taken in full light, the keycaps didn't look like that in any other pictures with different lighting conditions. I think a lighter gray, like the one in the second picture, would mesh really well with the purple.

I wouldn't worry about Neon Gelatinous Evangelism. Your set is not in the least bit like it, and that one looks like it is on hold anyway.

I will be trying to run this either way and I agree that I don't need approval for the colorway, more so I was wondering for the sake of not having 2 of the same themed sets running at similar times.

I was open to running this through epbt but I was informed that they don't have the molds for a lot of popular 40% keys, and I'm a bit of a 40% fanatic so it's kind of a deal breaker for me.

That being said, thank you all for the positive and constructive feedback. I have learned a lot over the weekend and taken in all the comments here and in the IC form so far and I will be making some pretty big revisions to the set:

UPDATE 01:

-GMK Kaijū is now pending it's name, while I do have a strong connection to this subject and name, its been blasted into my ear about how much this reminds them of a certain anime and I certainly agree and that was somewhat on purpose. Since there doesn't seem to be any issue within the community that this be an EVA 01 themed set, I would like to lean harder into this theme and separate the project from the name and specific theme of Kaijū. I intend to give the community the NGE themed set it deserves as I am a big fan of classic anime and it is already a favorite of mine.

-Over the weekend I have been dialing in my renders to try and show more accurate colors and lighting conditions to give a better idea of how the set will look in reality as opposed to how a computer program wants it to look. I found out that the colors in my renders have been over saturated, too bright and poorly lit as the highlight were on the side of the cap not the top. I agree with the comments that the grey and violet I chose may make the text illegible or muddy. I made some new renders using a brighter purple Pantone that will match closer to EVA 01 and the lighter grey GMK 2B. Examples and comparison to old set will be below. These still probably are not 100% accurate but I'm trying to improve my render skills every day. Let me know what you think!

-When I first made the set my main intention was just to make a cool looking set I would like to see on my keyboards. I was not aware of how GMK does their kit pricing based off the number of colors in kits, therefore I will need to make some big adjustments mainly to the base kit in order to keep the price down. I am proposing a different accent key that uses purple and green. There will be an example below. However since people really like the original accent keys that are reminiscent of EVA 01's awakened form, I would like to propose an extra kit that includes the purple and red accent keys and possibly alternate alphas in the same color. Below will be an example of both.

I really enjoyed the color variety, it sucks to see it reduced for the cost. It is a really big drawback of GMK. For the awakened set, I would consider some green keycaps with black or purple legends, if that still keeps cost down.

I don't know how Sanctuary Rebirth is getting reverse dye-subbed, but Dymloslouire might. I figure PBT sets with dye-subs are generally cheaper regardless of color, but I have no clue how a lot of these sets are being run. I don't think KAT is an option for this set either, given the differences in legends and profile.

This set was initially all over the place as far as inspiration, color combinations, and color arrangements, and since you've narrowed your focus I'll just leave it at that.

That being said, I do have a few concerns on the set:
- Base kit ~ ISO (or lack of), excess amount of hamburger icons, both caps lock icons, a few lacking keys for 65%, and you're missing the appropriate furigana/rubi.
- Numpad kit ~ barred 1u zero

I will continue to tweak colors if need be, waiting to see what people think of the new colors. Going to try and get a hold of a 2B sample.

Base kit - ISO enter is there, I'm not trying to open another debate here about this and some people would rather not see the enter at all. I don't think hamburger icons are excessive, they only add more options to what icons you use on your bottom row and add a key for ortho layouts if people really have a problem with too many hamburgers I can change the icon to something else. One caps lock key is stepped which is a standard key for most base kits hard to tell cause it's black.

Not sure what keys I'm missing for 65% layout, please expand on that. Hiragana legends aren't missing anything, I put it together based on the molds that already exist and this layout is most pleasing to me.

I'd say you'd be better not bothering with ISO at all, than with just ISO enter and no 2/" 3/£ '/@ #/~ or \\|

Better to have a seperate ISO or Nor-DE-UK kit. As an ISO user I would prefer that to a bastard ISO-ANSI mashup.

Also, sweet colours, I really like this and would be interested if there was a true ISO-UK option.

Fair enough.

One caps lock key is stepped which is a standard key for most base kits hard to tell cause it's black.

I'm not talking about stepped vs. non-stepped caps. I'm talking about the inclusion of one arrow icon (and the absence of its stepped option) and two purse icons. Which one have you chosen or are you actually offering both icons? On top of that, if you are offering both icons, I'd reckon the inclusion of the stepped arrow is in order.

Not sure what keys I'm missing for 65% layout, please expand on that. Hiragana legends aren't missing anything, I put it together based on the molds that already exist and this layout is most pleasing to me.

Numpad kit has the barred 0 key already.
You're missing compatibility for the other most common far right columns. Legends are indeed missing correct furigana/rubi. If you're going for the Mito route (aesthetics over accuracy) that's totally your prerogative. I'm aware of the inclusion of the barred zero, but why is that even there?

Edit is emboldened.

With this user's IC, I honestly have no idea what the barred 1u zero is for. Literally, never seen it before lol

Oh I see, sorry that's a mistake, I realize now you were pointing it out. Ill change that soon, overhauling the kits is my next priority.

As for the ISO keys, Its going to be too risky to run a seperate kit for it since a set like Jamon could only sell 37 kits, and its not really fair to everyone else to add every ISO key necessary so I'm trying to come up with a good compromise if anyone has any ideas, someone suggested making up some new alternative ISO legends.

Quote
I'm not talking about stepped vs. non-stepped caps. I'm talking about the inclusion of one arrow icon (and the absence of its stepped option) and two purse icons. Which one have you chosen or are you actually offering both icons? On top of that, if you are offering both icons, I'd reckon the inclusion of the stepped arrow is in order.

Ok, I see what you mean now. As far as the icons go Ill be refining them, right now there are 3 caps lock icons 2 locks and one down arrow, I will probably stick with 2 down arrows one stepped and replace the lock icon with a control icon. Thanks for pointing this out.

You're missing compatibility for the other most common far right columns. Legends are indeed missing correct furigana/rubi. If you're going for the Mito route (aesthetics over accuracy) that's totally your prerogative. I'm aware of the inclusion of the barred zero, but why is that even there?

For the Hirigana legends, the entire set is pretty much going for an aesthetic route over accuracy. Since I don't really agree with the aesthetic messiness of furigana/rubi I will be leaving it out.

I will look into the keys I'm missing for 65% layouts I'm still unsure of what you mean since there should be enough 1u mods to fit the right columns.

Edited: Didn't see your response above.

Since this is my first set and these are uncharted waters for me, I want to make sure everything is perfect and I can only do that thanks to everyone's feedback and constructive criticism.

Thanks everyone, :thumb: I suck at taking compliments so here's some more quick renders:

Example of full awakened set, thinking it would be sold as a separate alpha and mod kit similar to GMK Laser Gaijin and Blocknet:

Regular alphas with awakened mods:

Thinking about going a shade brighter on the grey. 2B can still look pretty dark in poor lighting:

I think the name kaijū is perfectly fine! + I think that the darker grey tones look way more fitting with the other colours in the set than the lighter grey.

(Edit: the only thing that would maybe make the new kaijū more fitting/more logic to other people is probably when the novelties are finally ther+have some connection to the name)

Never watched Eva. I was a big fan of the Kaiju approach. Eva doesnt own purple/green. Theres plenty of themes people could shout at you. The joker, hulk, riddler, prowler, greengoblin, puffy ami yumi, kang the conqueror, lex luthor, piccolo, aries Shion etc. I think Eva just comes to mind for most right now because there was an IC for it before. I think you should hold onto your original Inspiration.

I love this set and love the colors, but I'd probably only be in if for the monsters XD

I can't promise anything right now, but I will try my best to make it happen. If I add an extra alpha and mod kit I will be looking at a total of 7 kits, only Massdrop would run a set with that many kits and the likeliness of someone like me without a name for themselves to get Massdrop as a vendor is less likely. It happened with Red Samurai so it is possible. If by the grace of the gods I can raise enough interest I would like to go this route. 

The other solution would be rearranging the kits by merging the numpad with the base kit driving up the price a bit and doing just an alpha kit or an accent kit. I might be able to find small vendors willing to run a 5 kit set.

I don't want to give the impression that I am changing the name and theme because people want me to. I want to change the name because I don't think Kaiju is the first thing that comes to mind when they see the set, if you actually had watched EVA and enjoyed it you might get a similar feeling. Yeah there is a lot of themes that hit the colors but not many that fit the hiragana caps which are a favorite of mine, at this point I have changed the inspiration for the set and have now matched the purple to EVA 01.

The thing is I'm more than happy to change the theme because I personally love EVA, some people make the claim that it saved anime in the 90s and brought a whole new dimension to the genre. If you enjoy anime at all I highly recommend it.

I also think someone else down the line could make a Kaiju set that actually hits the theme better.

I love EVA and I feel that just changing the name to GMK EVA 01 or something along those lines it will gain more popularity as well, since a lot of the colorways for artisans are also named this. And it also opens the door to an EVA 02 themed set. Have you tried doing normal alphas on the set and maybe full Hiragana on the Awakened alpha's?

I like the way your thinking but I need to be careful with licensing issues. The Japanese can be very protective of their IPs. See Nintendo.

Most likely will not be doing a normal alpha set for this, it just doesn't really make sense. Definitely toying around with the idea of the Awakened alphas being full hira though, but it will be a little while before I have enough time to sit down and make a render for them.

Been watching this set, but wasnt sure until revisiting. I think this set looks amazing, and that's from someone who has never/never thought he would ever consider buying a hiragana set. But this set is perfect, and its ****ing Evangelion, of coure hiragana is okay! I'm no color genius or anything but I wanted to voice that I personally preferred the Old Violet C, I thought the darker purple blended in better with the dark mods and the whole neon green on dark aesthetic (Windows hacker theme) I also think the darker Violet C was more appealing on the alphas. 
I also really liked the 2B Gray and would be really interested in seeing a render with that Grey and the Old Violet. I feel like the new lighter Grey, while being very nice, is changing the initial feeling I got from the set of it being like a dark sort of terminal in a mech suit. If you look at the GMK color wheel, 2B is definitely not as dark as in your renders, no worries there. Not saying 2B is the perfect Grey, just saying I confidently prefer the renders with the darker grey. There are so many perfectly contrasting light grey sets out there already.

Post by: Battouseye on Thu, 02 May 2019, 11:10:01
I am a big fan of the bottom render.
Neon Gelatinous Evangelism is already doing that though

Can anyone confirm or deny if this set is still happening? Don't want to step on any toes but the sets are very different and the IC for that looks dead. Considering re-branding.

I would at least try to reach out to donutcat (he's been pretty inactive for awhile) -- it can't hurt. It sure looks like it's pretty much dead in the water though.

I wish sets this cool would be run in PBT, I cannot stand ABS

Also, donutcat's set looks absolutely nothing like this. You don't need his approval.

I will be trying to run this either way and I agree that I don't need approval for the colorway, more so I was wondering for the sake of not having 2 of the same themed sets running at similar times.

I was open to running this through epbt but I was informed that they don't have the molds for a lot of popular 40% keys, and I'm a bit of a 40% fanatic so it's kind of a deal breaker for me.

That being said, thank you all for the positive and constructive feedback. I have learned a lot over the weekend and taken in all the comments here and in the IC form so far and I will be making some pretty big revisions to the set:

UPDATE 01:

-GMK Kaijū is now pending it's name, while I do have a strong connection to this subject and name, its been blasted into my ear about how much this reminds them of a certain anime and I certainly agree and that was somewhat on purpose. Since there doesn't seem to be any issue within the community that this be an EVA 01 themed set, I would like to lean harder into this theme and separate the project from the name and specific theme of Kaijū. I intend to give the community the NGE themed set it deserves as I am a big fan of classic anime and it is already a favorite of mine.

-Over the weekend I have been dialing in my renders to try and show more accurate colors and lighting conditions to give a better idea of how the set will look in reality as opposed to how a computer program wants it to look. I found out that the colors in my renders have been over saturated, too bright and poorly lit as the highlight were on the side of the cap not the top. I agree with the comments that the grey and violet I chose may make the text illegible or muddy. I made some new renders using a brighter purple Pantone that will match closer to EVA 01 and the lighter grey GMK 2B. Examples and comparison to old set will be below. These still probably are not 100% accurate but I'm trying to improve my render skills every day. Let me know what you think!

-When I first made the set my main intention was just to make a cool looking set I would like to see on my keyboards. I was not aware of how GMK does their kit pricing based off the number of colors in kits, therefore I will need to make some big adjustments mainly to the base kit in order to keep the price down. I am proposing a different accent key that uses purple and green. There will be an example below. However since people really like the original accent keys that are reminiscent of EVA 01's awakened form, I would like to propose an extra kit that includes the purple and red accent keys and possibly alternate alphas in the same color. Below will be an example of both.

Wow thanks for the compliment glad I could possibly convert you to the dark side. >:D I think you might be right about the 2B, I was able to get a really nice picture of a 2B sample and I'm more confident now that it's not too dark. I was trying to make my renders show what it would look like in indoor lighting so that's why they look darker. Plus it's a stock color so the price will be better. The Violet I'm not too sure about, the pantone in real life is really dark and I worry about the purple legends getting lost, its a pretty color but almost blueish in less light. Im going to order a pantone of the other purple to make sure. I'll make a render later tonight to show you Violet 2B combo.

No problem, Im new here so Im not really sure how these things are supposed to go.  ;) Just figure everyone should have their voice heard especially if they are interested in throwing down for some fancy plastic.

Sending them a model would sure be a lot easier, but not as fun for me.

Any idea if we could get those tilde shaped arrow keys instead of the arrows? IMO would fit better with the icon mods. If not, are arrows going to be on center? They aren't centered in the image gallery.

Great set and I'm looking forwards to the gb!

I agree with the others, C looks better!

Violet c gets my vote as well :p

+1 for violet c as well. 267c doesn't seem to provide as much contrast for the alphas.

UPDATE 02:

Huge update to the set:
-Name and theme change
-Colors finalized
-Rearranged kits
-Added Awakened Alpha kit
-Better ISO support
-1.25 r3 added to 40 Split kit
-Novelty render

Guys please check out 268C as well. I believe this may be a strong contender. Not as violet as Violet C, but not as light purple as the other suggested purple. I really didn't mean to push Violet C as the endgame. I think we still need more renders to compare. Please please try 268C as well.

It's because FullMetal said in Update #2 that he changed the inspiration to something along the lines of evoking what it'd be like in the cockpit of Unit-01 which it does not evoke.

Edit: removed some wording which after re-reading may have come off snide.

In my defense the original design was not meant to be EVA it was morphed into this form by taking community feedback. The dissimilarity comments have only appeared after the name change, before this there were far too many people commenting to ignore that the set took some inspiration from the colors of EVA-01. I took some artistic liberties with the amount of grey used, this was intentional. I realize there is a liberal use of grey here but it is not nonexistent in the EVA design. I realize it is a small accent and not a primary color, I wanted to originally create a more subdued set than something like NGE or Laser by using neutral colors.

I think adding orange to the base kit makes things start to look very garish. I was already planning on having orange novelty keys for people that would like a touch of orange.

I'm going to leave this render here and see if people would like to see the base kit that leaves out the grey, (also cutting down on price) and is similar to the alternate alpha kit but using green instead while turning the mods green and violet. A much more faithful representation of EVA-01.

If a faithful representation of EVA-01 is what you are looking for, then sure by all means completely leave out the grey. Personally though, I would recommend sticking to your initial vision and consider renaming this set to something else. Having the colors evoke EVA-01 should not have to mean that you completely abandon your initial vision.

Still looking  forward to comparing Violet C and 268C (one pantone away from the last purple you were trying) If we can brainstorm colors for a few days and put up a vote thatd be shwiggitty,

I'd agree about the name. I personally don't really care about it but I certainly got really hyped about the gray/green alphas. One thing I don't like after re-checking renders is icon mods. I maybe old fashioned but I dig regular icon mods and not the new ones for Alt/Ctrl/Home and all the other stuff. Like I'm fine with the standard Enter, Shift, Caps Lock, Tab icons but Esc and the previously mentioned looks a bit weird for my taste. I do get why you want to go with Icon only modifiers though and you definitely shouldn't take my opinion into account lol.

Yeah I do prefer the new colorway. Looks great!

If we're talking more calculatingly here, one hypothesis we can draw from recent successful GMK GBs (Laser, Wavez, Metropolis, maybe even Bento) is that: There's a healthy appetite for striking, vibrant, eff-you-look-at-me colorways. People love those. Wavez did very well despite not being on (Mass)Drop.

So yeah, I hope you'd go for this. The neon green on purple is very unique for GMK, even more so with sublegends, and it's not as garish as GMK NGE's all-green modifiers  :thumb:

Precisely because so many of the recent sets fits your above description that I feel the more muted tones of the original design would provide a nice healthy contrast to them. Not everyone likes eff-you sets and there's been a real dearth of such that aren't simply one or two toned.

Huh, I would argue that it's the opposite. The sets I mentioned are very recent and IMO the outliers, not the norms when it comes to colors.
But hey, I'm not gonna debate numbers that I don't have with you. Let's wait and see how others react to this new set. Maybe a poll at some point by OP will settle that :)

In my defense the original design was not meant to be EVA it was morphed into this form by taking community feedback. The dissimilarity comments have only appeared after the name change, before this there were far too many people commenting to ignore that the set took some inspiration from the colors of EVA-01. I took some artistic liberties with the amount of grey used, this was intentional. I realize there is a liberal use of grey here but it is not nonexistent in the EVA design. I realize it is a small accent and not a primary color, I wanted to originally create a more subdued set than something like NGE or Laser by using neutral colors.

I think adding orange to the base kit makes things start to look very garish. I was already planning on having orange novelty keys for people that would like a touch of orange.

Keeping the same color for the legends on the alphas and mods reads much better. 

My eyes had trouble shifting from the bright green to the less bright purple on gray.  I really like the purple on gray, but you'd need to tone down the green legends so it's all balanced in brightness.

I think the awakened set is harder to call.  I think the red is going to be hard to read...

If a faithful representation of EVA-01 is what you are looking for, then sure by all means completely leave out the grey. Personally though, I would recommend sticking to your initial vision and consider renaming this set to something else. Having the colors evoke EVA-01 should not have to mean that you completely abandon your initial vision.

Well my initial vision was Kaiju and I'm not going back to that. ;D
LMAO for what it's worth tho, I hope you stick with the grey alphas.

I've had a change of heart on this set, honestly, with some of the recent updates. I think it could be THE Evangelion set if we could nail a few things:

-Some real solid novelties, not meh ones like troubled minds. It would be awesome to get a small EVA-looking image like what Mizu does with the bear and waves.
-Accent mods. I really like how it looks with green, but I'd also like to see what the red awakened set with red accent mods looks like.
-Good color correction testing - I see noctilocous and troubled minds and they both kind of undersaturate the green. I don't think this set will suffer the same issue, but I would be better safe than sorry.

Overall, I really like the direction this set is taking with the awakened Hiragana (non-sublegend). I know a lot of people disagree and it's a matter of taste, honestly. I personally find the hiragana more minimalistic and in tune with the set.

consensus seems to be: original grey legends and they way to go, and awakened alphas as a child kit (either plain hiragana or sub legends would be a nice thing to vote on)
Lets get back to the real discussion of color matching. Violet C is nice, lets see 268C side by side?

That's definitely not true. If you tally up the posts since the new render was posted then you'd see that more people are in favor of the purple alphas than the gray alphas. I do like the gray alphas, however, and think they should be included as a separate kit.

I'm not doing anything, only suggesting that the past week has been completely useless as far as pushing this forward in a way that will get people interested. Half the people commenting are more concerned with whether the name makes sense than actually discussing the original concept on the first post. It's not fun seeing something you're excited about trash talked and turned into something different because op thinks he owes evangelion nerds a anime keyset.

Things are liable to change during Interest Checks.
It will stop when OP makes it so.
Itís weird how you, not OP, out of nowhere attempted to shift the discussion topic while everyone, including OP, are still debating which colorway to pick.

Like Forever said, it's a Joker (The Killing Joke specifically) set. The EVA part was an afterthought because it too, had a similar color scheme albeit slightly different hues and added novelties from there.

Hey GH sorry to leave you in the dark for a month I had to take a break from the project for vacation, but outside of that I have been working hard on the third and hopefully final revision of the set. Thank you for bearing with me through this learning experience and all the massive changes that have happened in the IC thus far.

Novelties mock-ups are complete along with the latest and hopefully final revision of kits. It took longer than expected this time because, I'll admit, revising the set for a third time kind of demoralized me. I was sitting on my hands trying to figure out how to put everything together perfectly. But, I think it was worth it in the end since there are a few revisions and fixes that might not have happened otherwise. Everything is still tentative and some kits could possibly be cut or combined for when the GB actually happens.

Please let me know what you think of all the changes, there are too many to list but the main ones are:
-Eliminating grey from the set
-Changing from Violet C Pantone to 267 C Pantone
-Novelty Kit
-Text mod kit
-Red and orange mod kits
-Numpad absorbed into base kit
-New font and graphics
-New Banner

This will be the last round of IC, so if there is anything you would like to see added or changed to the set now would be the time to use your voice.

If people are still conflicted about the colors I can make a new poll to settle it. I received a Pantone sample for 267 last week along with an officially licensed Eva Unit-01 model and Its pretty close to a perfect match.

New renders will be put up shortly.

1. No guarantees.
2. See above.
3. I went over each angel and I chose these because they were the most iconic and recognizable in keycap form. I would have liked to do a key for each angel but some just wont look right as a key and its a bit overkill. I might add one or two by making a poll and letting the community choose which angel(s) to add.

My god you did it you mad man. These look beautiful.
As the guy who complained about the gray alphas, I did feel kinda bad about giving you extra work, but wow, that colorway.
Just one thing: Iím a bit worried about the amount of kits you got here. For ex, is the orange Mod Type really necessary?
Either way, Iím in.
No worries, I think it was worth it. Yeah I know there are a large amount of kits and more than I wanted to run initially. The colored and text mod kits are all things that were specifically requested by multiple people. I might condense and combine them with other kits if necessary.

Yes, orange mod Type are 100% necessary. AHH! :-X

Or, at least a little orange. I've got nice things waiting for this set. Might do this instead of GMK Wavez!

The purple alphas definitely say Evangelion, but I will really miss the grey of the original concept. I thought the theme stood on it's own without being purely unit 01 themed. Loving the artisans, the Angels in particular are spot on.

Thanks, I'll be working on renders all this weekend, I could show what I have now but I would like to get a few new boards done so I can show off more of the kits at once.

In the mean time I made a new poll if you would like to choose a bonus novelty for me to do, I will make a R1 1u novelty for the one that gets the most votes:

+7.11.19 Update
 -New renders added
 -R4 pg up, pg dn, and 1.75 lock added to Test Unit kit
 -Type R and O kits condensed into Type S kit

Fresh hot renders! I will get some bigger board renders done eventually but you get the idea.

I decided to gut the Mod type R and O kits as suggested and combine them with the main novelty kit. This way you don"t have to buy an extra kit for one orange or red accent novelty key.

I'm also on the fence about the berserk alpha kit tbh. It's kind of pulling away from the theme when I think a pure Hiragana kit or pure English kit might fit better here. The poll question in the IC form is a close tie for all 3. But I'm curious to hear what others think.

I'd prefer the berserk colors with pure hiragana lettering. I really like the accent it gives, I feel that it makes the mods pop out a bit more.

Edit: I'd also like to see a Eva head novelty with the head being in inverted modifier colors (green key, black head).

Love the set. The green lettering on purple looks sooooooo good. Also in for a hirgana only option

And would love a colemak option, but I know I'm in the minority.

[Edited because I realized the pink-lettering-on-purple was an option, not the base kit]

Totally understand that kits are locked, but I have to ask: in the test units kit, there's two 1u blanks, two 1.75u blanks, two 2.25u blanks, but only one 2.0u blank. Why not put two 2u blanks in there? Speaking anecdotally, all the split keyboards I use have two 2u spacebars, so I'm just a little surprised there's only one.

I'm still going to dump money into this, just figured I'd ask.

Kits will most likely be adjusted before I run the set and Ill definitely take everyone's suggestions into consideration when that time comes. The date is set for next year due to my NA vendor of choice who is backed up that far, not because of GMK. No guarantees on an earlier date but I would need to find a new vendor if I decide to do that.

Sorta Off-topic, sorta On-topic, but I just finished Neon Genesis Evangelion for the first time yesterday and WOW did it take a hard left turn there at the end. To the point where I'm not even a fan of the series as a result. Is there anything worth watching that rehabilitates it, e.g., The End of Evangelion? EoE:Renewal? Death & Rebirth?

It doesn't change my love for the color scheme of this IC - I am definitely getting a kit, maybe even two, but figured this was a good group to ask.

Check out End of Eva, don't bother with Death&Rebirth (Death recaps the series and Rebirth is like the first half hour of End of Eva).

Sorta Off-topic, sorta On-topic, but I just finished Neon Genesis Evangelion for the first time yesterday and WOW did it take a hard left turn there at the end. To the point where I'm not even a fan of the series as a result. Is there anything worth watching that rehabilitates it, e.g., The End of Evangelion? EoE:Renewal? Death & Rebirth?

It doesn't change my love for the color scheme of this IC - I am definitely getting a kit, maybe even two, but figured this was a good group to ask.

Watch End of Evangelion. It's the ending you were expecting. I can't say it'll make sense without reading a lot into it afterwards, but holy heck, you're gonna have a great time, I promise you haha

The date is set for next year due to my NA vendor of choice who is backed up that far, not because of GMK. No guarantees on an earlier date but I would need to find a new vendor if I decide to do that.

The later date works well for people like me, who's wallets are still recovering from all the money spent on keysets this year. I'm setting some aside for this one no matter what.

Exactly, only thing missing is numpad extension to alphas. At the risk of sounding like a broken record. Please add it as well. Most of ICs with alt alpha colours ignore numpad, which kills the look of full size kb.

I agree. While you're there, might as well do the whole function row instead of leaving that one section out. nevermind. But, now I really want a numpad with the alternate alpha colorway.

So I've gone back over this set (which I totally love) and a couple questions:

In the base set, why are there two R3 1.75 caps locks?
In either base or test units, is there any way to get a 1.5u OS/Super key? In the minivan render there's a 1.5u ALT key (1.25 CTRL, 1.5 ALT, 1.25 OS) which is covered in the base set, but some people prefer CTRL-OS-ALT order, which isn't covered by base or test. 

Very much looking forward to this set!

The 1.5u mod keys are for WKL layouts, not the Minivan. The WKL people don't need 1.5u OS key.
And in case you're not aware, the Minivan - or rather, its creator - is a controversial topic among keycap designers, due ot his past behaviors.

Um, sure but none of the renders are of WKL kbs though and one of the renders is of the minivan so the ask seems pretty relevant to me. Plus many Mac compatibility kits have 1.5 for both command and option buttons.

And in case you're not aware, the Minivan - or rather, its creator - is a controversial topic among keycap designers, due ot his past behaviors.

Yeah, I gathered that from the now-locked Olivia thread. But I'm not him and I think the designer community basically telling the owner community to eff off because of what that guy did is quite frankly, childish and petty. There are other keyboards out there with a similar if not the same layout and it's ridiculous to punish people that own those keyboards, especially considering TVK's not even in business anymore.

Title: Re: [IC] GMK Unit-01 - Rev. 03
Post by: nguyenhimself on Mon, 18 November 2019, 04:48:33
The thing is, base kit configs are always a sensitive topic, since you're essentially asking everyone to pay more to support YOUR keyboard and not theirs.
The Minivan is a very niche keyboard, especially now that the seller has closed shop. Few (if not no) other 40% keyboards have the luxury of space for a 1.5u mod key.
I hope you understand what you are really asking of OP *and* everyone here.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Unit-01 - Rev. 03
Post by: psxndc on Mon, 18 November 2019, 10:54:54
Literally everyone that provides feedback to ICs is asking an IC runner to provide support for a keyboard they own and I'm not the only minivan owner.

And me merely asking for a single key is not asking "everyone here" to support my keyboard any more than it is ISO owners asking me to support *2* enter keys in the base kit or to Alice owners asking me to support their extra B key in the test units kit. You get and pay for keys that aren't relevant to you; that's just the reality of any GB.  All of my keyboards are TKL or less, so are you telling me in every IC should I start complaining about supporting everyone else's num pad in the base kit?

I'm asking about 1 key, which I've already explained is relevant beyond the minivan (not to mention I pointed out a potentially redundant caps lock key, so nothing changes by eliminating that and adding what I asked about). If FullMetal says "I'm not doing that" then cool, no harm no foul - I'm not going to stomp my feet and pitch a fit; it was just a request which is literally the point of ICs. But you implying it's ridiculous for me to ask and that it's some burden on the entire community is silly considering - again, louder and slower - a minivan is one of the renders; asking for minivan support isn't out of line. If FullMetal doesn't want to support the board, that's fine, I get it, again no harm no foul. But then they should take it out of the renders to avoid confusion.

Question about the Mod Type-S kit. Why have all the 1.25u mods honeycombed & all the 1.5u striped? Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 of each design in each unit size to have novelty keys to distinguish ctrl & alt, or is there a reason behind it?

Not sure I follow - in Mod Type S, there's 4 honeycombs (two 1.5u and two 1.25u) and there's 4 striped (two 1.5u and two 1.25u). Doesn't that cover what you're asking for? What am I missing here?

You are right, I was reading it wrong. Glitch in my system I guess, I thought it said 1.25 by all the honeycombed keys & all 1.5 by the striped keys & even did a double take before I posted LOL!

I have a 75% with the Maxkey Berserk SA caps that I use at work, because of space and frankly, because it looks cool, but for the home board I'm going to build with these caps I'm going full 100%, because I want the full effect and the use of all the novelties, also that's what I use for gaming, and often a lot of the games I play like Dwarf Fortress have odd keybindings and sometimes require the entire set.

I'm thinking kailh box jades as well, I love that sound. My work one is 78g Zilents so my coworkers don't brain me with my board because of the sound lol

Gotta say i love this set! Will grab it when it comes to GB for sure.   :thumb:
My 2c regarding the current kits below:

1) R4 Pg down must have been forgotten in the base set? There is Page Up R3 but no Pg Down to compliment it below.
2) Consider adding 1u R3 novelty for Mod Type-S. 65% users can make a pure novelty rightmost mod column. Would be quite nice.
3) Maybe add one 1.75u R3 novelty for Capslock. Many ppl use it for Ctrl/Fn anyways and will give a nice touch to the whole set. I would go with Esc / Caps / Bottom mods / Enter. Second option might be to make one of the three 2.25u keys to 1.75u.
4) Personally prefer centered mods. I don't dig the lack of symmetry with non-centered ones with the rest of the keys.
5) I really like the Berserk secondary alphas and it's legends color. Maybe keep it as pure latin without hiragana sub legends in order to distinguish it more from the base alphas. Still not sure if i like the mixed legends on base alphas or not. For all other sets, i prefer pure latin tbh. Berserk could match well with one of my upcoming iron165's.

I hope you will think about my suggestions above :)

Apologies if this has been asked before (I skimmed but didn't see it):

Could a small kit be added that's just the WASD keys from the Berserk Alphas? Since those caps are already being offered as part of a larger kit, it seems like it should be very easy to do, and it would be nice to have the option to make those keys pop without having to buy the entire other alpha kit.

Really not a fan of the Berserk alphas, the low contrast between red and purple makes the legends hard to read.
In my opinion this set would benefit a lot from additional alphas with English legends only. The color scheme is already really loud and the combination of English legends with Japanese sub-legends makes it even busier as it already is.

OP mentioned that the GB would happen Q2 latest (April/May/June). OP's most likely finishing things up, and communicating with vendors (If i'm remembering right, the delay is not the OP, it's the vendors backed up with already planned GBs).

I think that's because they're paired, i.e., there's a R1 pgup/dn, R2 pgup/dn and an R3 pgup/pgdn, but there's no R4 pair.

The way to pair a R3 PgUp is with a R4 PgDn, just like how R2 PgUp pairs with R3 PgDn.

All it needs really is the 2", 3£, '@, #~ and `¨ then we'd be golden.
I did notice the £ in the base set so actually the 3£ and even the `¨ could be ignored.

Everyone, let's stop discussing kit layouts or suggestions for a moment.

(https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/948/109/c57.png)

The crux of the matter is that, OP has been MIA since late Jan.
NOTHING will get done until:

1. He comes back, or:
2. Someone somehow decides to move forward with this set without him, which few would want to do since it's kind of a gentlemen agreement among GB runners not to step on each other's toes. Even if the GB happens, what if he comes back at some point in the future and turns out he's not happy with someone else "stealing" his design?

For all we know, this set is stuck in limbo right now and might never reach GB.
Until this gets resolved, any other discussion is frankly pointless.

I see the light now; stealing designs when you feel like it is actually for the greater good of everyone. In fact, not doing it would be an injustice, we have to be practical here - we've done our fellow community members a disservice already by waiting this long to question our misgivings about plagiarising someone else's work. In the future if a group buy is unannounced or too far away for our liking, we should just do another gb with the identical colours, reuse the renders from the original IC and just cash out.. Oh I mean save everyone from those awful design hoarders whose idea it was in the first place, and whose time/money was invested into it.

Since this is being revived, can we discuss kits again?

One thing I noticed that's missing is 1u R3 novelties. Right now, if you're an ortho user and you don't have TAB or ESC in R3, the legends will be outta whack. Some people have CTRL there, Colemak users have BKSP, etc.

Rather than try to please all, can we get just one 1u R3 novelty? Then people will have *an* option and it won't be mis-legended. Thanks!

I'm with the side for icon only.

If they were to include it as a separate add on that would have no impact on us but I doubt there would be a whole new kit this late.

Small adjustments (see post below) like requests to modify the ortho compat seems more likely

How did SA Berserk able to push through with their NERV ESC keycap? I think they had the Evangelion 3.0 NERV logo on it.

Berserk's NERV novelty also isn't actually the NERV logo:

Could the same thing be done for this set?

It's not too far off from the logo of NERV in Evangelion 3.0.

Maybe change the text at the corner to phonetic "Canada" (加拿大) or omit it entirely. The same thing can be done too with altering the polygonal shapes.

Is there any ETA by chance, please? With the whole pandemic a lot of us are getting really tight on any sort of expendable funds and would love to know since I spent my previous reserve for this set when it went ghost mode. I have been dying for this set and had even gotten 2 boards to match it so any news so I can move things around to be ready would be incredible.
