Title: [IC] GMK Rocket [UPDATE 2: Proxies, GB start date, pricing announced!]
Post by: Rise on Fri, 26 April 2019, 10:00:30

Hey GH! Just a pure all-out debut GMK set from someone who really loves the colorway and what it means to me, living in my hometown in Freeport, New York it was always pretty hot in the summers, and this just happened to be one of my favorite things to cool off in the summer heat, this set was meant as a callback to the simpler more nostalgic days of post-war American culture and living, inspired by the "fabulous 50's" of American pop-culture, the rocket pop was created around this era and became a hit amongst every age, becoming an Iconic treat at it's time and seen as a growing symbol of american capitalism and patriotism, this was truly an iconic colorway meant to replicate the upstart nature of america and the ingenuity of the people inhabiting it. This Popsicle inspired set was made to turn heads and add that special level of flavor to any of your keyboards, and if you don't believe me, maybe I'll need Maria to convince you, she's one of our potential desk mat options!

[UPDATE:] Happy to announce Rocket will be ran and fulfilled by ProjectKeyboard! [UPDATE] GROUPBUY STARTS SEPTEMBER 1st!

Prices will be as follows on the Project Site

Base Kit: $125.00
Whiteout Mods: $95.00
Novelties: $35.00
Spacebars: $30.00

international vendors are as follows

AU and ASIA: Dailyclack
EU: Mykeyboard

Rocket is meant to be a set that's relatively minimal, carrying only novelties, spacebars, one mod kit and the base set that will support ISO. [Update]: As well as maintaining the stock GMK colors :)

The Colorway for GMK Rocket is as follows

GMK WS1 = White
GMK N5 = Blue
GMK RO2 = Red

Along with Maria, I also have a minimal desk mat for those with more conservative tastes, shown below.

I hope you guys like the set and the effort I put into putting together the entire experience. I have already talked with the other creator of a different popular set with similar colorway about running this set (SA By the Seas) and he said this was A-okay to run! Below is a google doc to gauge interest on the set itself as well as the desk pads.

Art was done by Hisui Hyena who did a fantastic job, finalized renders done by ProjectKeyboard

Update #1: Added New Novelties, Renders for the sets as well as spacebars in progress.

Update #2: Added Good Renders of Novelties, Spacebars, and Base kit.

Mega Update #3: Renders, Vendor Confirmation, Color and Kit Changes.

I think that's an awesome idea :) It would mean less molds, which would reduce the price of the novelites.

I love the theme of this kit, reminds me of eating firecracker popsicles on the 4th of July.

I bought bluegaloo mods to pair with red alert. But I didn't get red alert yet. Now this comes along. Defo one of the better thought out and better looking sets from the 1000+ GMK ICs posted since lunchtime. Good luck!

Aren't you Tesletron's business partner?  Why are you guys starting yet another project to take in funds from the community when you've failed to deliver on... anything?  Until either of you can prove that you're capable of fulfilling commitments, whether it be the Lumina or hell, design work you've been paid for even, I can't encourage anyone to give their funds to you. 

Beautiful artwork Hisui Hyena.  At least one person affiliated with these two is able to deliver.

Alright, here's the deal, every post I've seen of you is an alt account smearing my "partner". I came in to attempt to help him progress the lumina buy, I was not affiliated with him at the time of the Lumina buy and I'm not gonna be smeared and talked down to because of a mistake on a previous designer that I'm trying to help fulfill. Do not take my act of kindness and twist it because not only is it unbelievably rude it's based on assumption and is factually incorrect. I'm "associated" with him and he is my friend, but I am not a part of the Lumina outside of good will.

Legitimate question here - is this off topic?  Not knowing much about Rise other than their "association" with a controversial runner like Tesletron has bearing on my interest, and I would think should have bearing on others as well.  My intent isn't to **** on the IC - I quite like the concept and think it's a set worth bringing into reality, but to pretend there isn't anything worth raising an eyebrow at seems like an oversight.

It's not off topic, however, I've already explained the situation and you came back insulting me with the whole "who are you" nonsense. I'm someone trying to run a set. My involvement with someone because of the fact I wanted to help them out as a friend to them should have nothing to do with me wanting to run a GMK set. I have no monetary connection to Tesletron whatsoever so to try and put the two together past what you've already said just isn't right man. I appreciate your concern but I am.

A.) Not physically vending the set
B.) Not physically tied to Tesletron except via friendship and good faith
C.) Done with this conversation as I'd like the rest of this convo to be about the set itself so I can improve it and make it better for the people.

Post by: mrpetrov on Fri, 26 April 2019, 12:23:09
I guess if I did have feedback, I might prefer slightly more muted red and blue mods/accents - sort of so it matches the slightly more washed out or dusty red and blue of the pictures and mat themselves? That said, I don't know much about the background and inspiration for the set, so a more dusty primary color theme might not suit that theme.

I don't think it's unreasonable to think that you might be running an alt account, what with your lengthy history over here.  Pot can't call kettle black and not expect someone to call them on their hypocrisy.  If you find that insulting, you might want to think things through a bit before making emotionally charged responses.  With the associations you've chosen, you should expect this type of skepticism.   You know, "birds of a feather" and whatnot.

All things considered, I'd love nothing more than to be wrong about both of you.  Here's your chance, so don't **** it up.  I've made my concerns known, and will gladly pick up a set of this aftermarket if you're able to deliver.  Toodles.

I will say this was definitely a harder set to pinpoint in colors, I think this will end up being one of the rare cases where a sit will end up looking better in person.

What I'd love to know is why someone would go through the trouble to make a new account to **** talk someone based on their assumption Tesletron's involvement?

The post pretty clearly states that Tesletron is doing renders, and that's it. How would his involvement with doing renders have any impact on a set that will be run and fulfilled by an established vendor? It's stated pretty clearly in the second paragraph of the IC: "I'm already in talks with multiple vendors but nothing solid yet." I think that makes it pretty clear that it's not only going to be a well designed set with a solid theme, but it's going to be run in the hands of someone who has done it before.

I get that Tesletron has projects that he's still working to get done, but this isn't Tesletron running the set. We get new set designers all the time, everyone's gotta start somewhere.

Hey! Thanks for bringing this up, I've updated the kits accordingly the F-keys are on me for forgetting about the actual setup and the red space bar will be included in the finalized base kits. Appreciate your guys' input :)

If you won't run sublegends on the numpad, and will run icon mods, then I suggest removing the lower legends from Num, Scroll and pause for a cleaner look to suit the set better. To go along with that, I recommend using "Print" instead of Prt Sc as well. Finally I'd change the num icons for divide and multiply to and .

In addition, why does the num enter have icon + text while the rest only use icons, and why is one of the iso enters in text? Same for the hhkb backspace... the ISO shift is also text+icon...

Some other inconsistencies which bother me personally. Why are 1.25u controls "Control", while 1.5u are "Ctrl"?

I like the colorway in general, but there are some inconsistencies and weird choices that I personally don't understand. :)

Although I'm not personally huge on the novelties and would most likely skip them, I do really like the base kit minus the red grave key.

I'm a TKL user and having that would drive me absolutely nuts personally. Unfortunately, I also don't see myself switching to the mod colored key as I just don't care for mod colored grave or forward slash on my boards.
 
Great set otherwise though!

I have a Space City Kobo Frame Filco that that could use this set.

(https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/filco/images/kobo/spacecity/06.jpg)

Any thoughts on R0 for the F-Row and R5 for the bottom row? Those seem like the pinnacle of GMK innovation & so far I think only GMK Carbon has featured them.

I'm looking into R0 and R5. Life got incredibly busy but rocket is still a plan to run based off the interest I got. More renders to come soon with the fixes Emir helped me out with.

Pretty uncommon to see a spacebar same as mod color. Whats the idea behind using the blue spacebar? Honestly not really sold on the yellow either. I'm totally an extra spacebar kinda guy but I think I need some renders for these color choices..

Blue spacebar has been removed, yellow will be more tan/beige to imitate the popsicle stick.

Hey GH! Just a pure all-out debut GMK set from someone who really loves the colorway and what it means to me, living in my hometown in Freeport, New York it was always pretty hot in the summers, and this just happened to be one of my favorite things to cool off in the summer heat, this set was meant as a callback to the simpler more nostalgic days of post-war American culture and living, inspired by the "fabulous 50's" of American pop-culture, the rocket pop was created around this era and became a hit amongst every age, becoming an Iconic treat at it's time and seen as a growing symbol of american capitalism and patriotism, this was truly an iconic colorway meant to replicate the upstart nature of america and the ingenuity of the people inhabiting it. This Popsicle inspired set was made to turn heads and add that special level of flavor to any of your keyboards, and if you don't believe me, maybe I'll need Maria to convince you, she's one of our potential desk mat options!

Rocket is meant to be a set that's relatively minimal, carrying only novelties, spacebars, and the base set that will support ISO. However it will have two custom colors barring GMK's classic WS1 colorway for the whites. I'm already in talks with multiple vendors but nothing solid yet.

The Colorway for GMK Rocket is as follows

GMK WS1 = White
RAL 5015-P = Blue
RAL 3028-P = Red
RAL 1002-P = Sand Yellow

More Board Renders to Come!

I hope you guys like the set and the effort I put into putting together the entire experience. I have already talked with the other creator of a different popular set with similar colorway about running this set (SA By the Seas) and he said this was A-okay to run! Below is a google doc to gauge interest on the set itself as well as the desk pads.

Art was done by Hisui Hyena who did a fantastic job, finalized renders will be done by Tesletron.

Update #1: Added New Novelties, Renders for the sets as well as spacebars in progress.

Update #2: Added Good Renders of Novelties, Spacebars, and Base kit.


I love that ergo kit though... It looks great for a retro set however it reminds me of the red blue and white robots from the 1980's cartoons

Hey Guys!

Just a mega update for rocket, it has been picked up and will eventually be ran :D. Changes to the kits, colors, and fixes to the base as well as some of the kits have been made properly. Thank you all so much for your interest in my keyset and I hope to see it come to fruition.

Just noticed that the base kit has a R1 1u mod colored \| key. I don't think that's used very often, usually the alpha colored key is, so I think you can remove it.

Has there ever been a GB where you needed to buy the keycaps to buy the deskmat? That would be unfortunate.

Hey Guys! Sorry for the late reply to this with the low numbers we were starting to see as well as just some inconsistencies the set we weren't okay with, we've decided to pull it for now, expect to see it in the near future and we're sorry for pulling it. Anyone who purchased a set of Rocket will have their raffle spot moved over to our upcoming project, GMK Bingsu, and refunds are going out now. Sorry! Expect to see rocket make a return in 2020. :)

Ah damn, that's really unfortunate. :/ With the first updating stating "- Update #1: In appreciation for the immense love we've gotten for rocket in the early-mid day numbers...", I was really expecting it to keep shooting upwards.

Don't worry, I am sure it'll get made in the end!

I thought the point of the original set was to use stock GMK colors. That would be sort of lost if it's going to run in SA. Though I don't mind that per se.
