Title: [IC] GMK Modern Dolch Light - GB opening on 02/02
Post by: janglad on Sun, 13 October 2019, 16:00:09
Hello everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to GMK Modern Dolch Light, a brighter variation of the popular GMK Modern Dolch!

(https://i.imgur.com/eBzu8HW.jpg)

Inspiration/Naming

As the name might suggest, Modern Dolch Light was born out of Modern Dolch. Me and Dixiemech realised that a lightened up version of MoDo looked great and after some tweaking this is what we came up with. Modern Dolch light features cool greys on both the alphas and modifiers. It uses the grey from Modern Dolch modifiers, for the legends, to give it that unique low contrast and calming look. To add some vibrancy we added a variation of the familiar cyan and red/pink accents found in the original Modern Dolch.

Now I now the naming might not make sense, this isn't a Dolch set after all. GMK Modern Dolch Light is a derivative of GMK Modern Dolch which is a derivative of OG Dolch. While this set is not necessarily a Dolch colorway, the name is there to show the origin of the design. One thing is for sure, this set will settle perfectly in every collection as an easy-on-the-eyes colorway that will go with any keyboard!

Kits

With the success of GMK 9009 R3 kit structure and GMK MoDoL also having two accents, we decided to use the same kit structure with some minor changes. As you can probably tell there are a lot of them, so we'll possibly revaluate some of them after form feedback (especially Alternate, Command and Norde). So if you're interested in these please do fill in the form linked at the bottom of this post!

Standard

(https://i.imgur.com/1d8FswC.jpg)

The standard kits has compatibility for the most popular layouts in the community. It features the reworked icon mods introduced with GMK 8008/9009 and has accent option for both escape and enter keys.

Addition

(https://i.imgur.com/oGzsaYR.jpg)

Addition adds support for 660c style layouts, ISO UK, 60%s with arrows and boards with an F13 key like the TGR Jane V2 CE. It also adds alternate legend options for 65% layouts and more.

Numbers

(https://i.imgur.com/NESt8NK.jpg)

Numbers adds compatibility for layouts with a numbed. It also includes the keys needed to outfit a 1800 style layout.

Obscure

(https://i.imgur.com/GHCf3Wb.jpg)

Obscure adds support for 40% layouts, both staggered and ortholinear, and split spacebar boards.

Aesthetic

(https://i.imgur.com/7BRGDKx.jpg)

Aesthetic is for those of you who like to add a little bit of colour to your boards, either through extra accents or through LEDs under lock keys. It also adds both centred and offset 6u spacebar support.

Alternate

(https://i.imgur.com/YNdzYIW.jpg)

Alternate ďalternatesĒ the existing colours on some keys. This kit is great if you enjoy monochrome accents or a more uniform looking f row.

Command

(https://i.imgur.com/GLtt9eQ.jpg)

Command is specifically aimed at Mac users by adding correct legends for Command and Option keys.

Modern

(https://i.imgur.com/BkTIgui.jpg)

Modern adds the option for a full icon bottom row. It also includes a more modern take on the arrows, caps lock and tab keys.

Norde

(https://i.imgur.com/WRy4cYC.jpg)

This kit adds compatibility for ISO NO, SE, FL, DK, DE layouts.

The group buy

GMK Modern Dolch Light will be sold by the amazing vendors linked below throughout February. Pricing will be announced later, but pricing will be similar to GMK 9009.

Slightly lighter modifiers/alphas, legends are quite a bit lighter (Modern Dolch gray vs CR on Muted), different accents. Also different modifiers of course.

I think it's lovely.  But I also think it's close to muted and people have wanted a rerun of muted for a long time.  I think you could blow MOQ out of the water with muted R2. We have hydro R2 coming (splash), so it's seems appropriate, right? Maybe offer a yellow accent with it for all of the e-yellow boards coming out?

I agree with your comments on muted. Iíd love if someone just reran GMK Muted with an R5 bottom row.

+1 R5

I like the set a lot but Iím not a big fan of the name; the colorway doesnít even remotely resemble Dolch. If anything you made a GMK Modern 9009 since youíre using those same green and red accents. I mean Modern Dolch was a tonally cooled down version of Dolch whereas this is more or less a tonally cooled down version of 9009.

Pretty sure the original runner of Muted has stated that there are no plans to re-run the set (and multiple people have attempted this already). So unless he changes his mind, this is the only way weíre gonna be able to get a Muted-like set.

Very muted ó pun intended ó but honestly itís the best looking set Iíve seen this year. The base kit is also trimmed down which is a big win. Naming wise itís admittedly far from the OG Dolch and is basically a desaturated 9009.

How white is the alpha? Is it the GMK CP or a custom grey?

All of the colors are custom RAL colors along with the custom Modern Dolch Gray for the alphas.

And here is a the quote from the second paragraph of the IC post about the name

Title: Re: GMK Modern Dolch Light
Post by: Rob27shred on Sun, 13 October 2019, 20:25:14
To me this set's naming would be much less controversial if you guys went with straight up red & cyan accents, instead of the pinkish red & cyan accents currently chosen. Personally I think red accents would look better than the pink ones, but that's admittedly a personal preference. I really think the big wins from doing that would be making the set fit much better into the Dolch inspiration & removing the similarities to 9009. All in all though I really do like the design & will be hopefully grabbing a set when this goes live!

Should've called it GMK Muted R2 instead; to me it's abundantly clear that's where the inspiration came from.

Good designers copy. Great designers steal. I think Muted is basic looking and boring. This is a perfect example of tweaking that just enough and all of a sudden it looks amazing.

+1 to the idea adding a mod that other than blue or pink.

Sure, but at some point the chain of inspirations went long enough to not be a chain anymore. Names should be descriptive, and within the mech community, the word "Dolch" has a rather specific meaning... which is not close to what this colorway actually IS.

"Modern Dolch" is objectively not a descriptive name for this colorway (and let me stress this: this is entirely beside the strengths and weaknesses of the set itself, its colorway, its kit coverage, etcetera ó it's just the name I find problematic).

Most 75% layouts and many 65% use R1 Home, R2 PgUp, R3 PgDn and R4 End (collectively known as "HUDE keys").

Frekin amazing renders Janglad!

some wishes ;D

+1 Alt Gr key (1.5u & 1.25u) in either the Norde kit or Addition kit,
+1 Alternate colored ISO enter in either the Addition kit or Alternative kit would be dope :p

<3

What he said, PLUS:

- Alt Gr 1.0U key along with the 1.5u and 1.25u keys (I'd prefer heavily to have them all in the Addition kit).
- R3 1.0u \| key in the Addition kit, to complete coverage of English (USA) over ISO or ANSISO. Bonus points for an R4 <> key as well.

- V4 (blue) 7.0U space bar. Just because it's Monday and I'm feeling whimsical today (tomorrow I'll be wanting it to be deep red instead).  ;) :D

I've been waiting for muted r2 for awhile... but I like this set too XD
Like others have said, I think the alphas are a little light. The colored mods lean more towards 9009 and are not very dolchee. Looks good though, interested.

Also, pls consider R3/4 PgUp/PgDn in base. I know you guys are going for a slim base - but with the popularity of 65s I think it's worth considering.

Maybe red accent from Modern Dolch is more sexy with this set.

Can you please explain to me how many previous statements were perceived to be a "rant" so I no longer make the same mistake again? I am having a hard time distinguishing the variances between this set and others that currently exist. I never once proclaimed that I had an issue with the similarities. Rather than continuing to sidetrack the conversion of this thread, would you also care to explain to me the differences this set has compared to GMK 9009? I appreciate any wisdom you wish to impart. :thumb:

My apologies for trying to continue a friendly conversation and stick to the topic of the thread. However, your answer does not help clarify my confusion. I never once stated that I disliked this set, in fact, I very much like it. I would most definitely participate in this if I did not currently own a similar set. Perhaps if enough interest was generated to influence some minor design changes, I would be willing to purchase myself a set. I was unaware that users are not allowed to participate in the conversation of interest checks even if there is a high probability of not joining the group buy. Are we not allowed to encourage changes in the design?

I never said it was not allowed. I said if you got nothing nice to say, better to keep it to yourself. But doesn't sound like that applies to you here based on your most recent reply, so whatever man, you do what you want. Read your first post again - you rant about the name, then about the color, then about the mods. That doesn't sound like "in fact, I very much like it" to me. You're like trying to question Jang's colors' choices, which I don't think is "some minor design changes". Bring this over to inbox if you wanna talk about it further and keep Jang's IC clean.

If row 5 is chosen please have a row 4 option. Row 5 is great for OG but not for every new set. There is nothing wrong with row 4.

This is so very close to Muted I am somewhat conflicted, because I really wanted to support the original Muted GB runner if they decide to do R2. I will probably just wait and pray for Muted Round 2.

Id prefer it the other way around. Have r4 in base kit. Then additional R5 bottom row kit. Since i'd assume there's more R4 users than R5

I mean these are keycaps, I don't think most people are buying just for the name. I still very much enjoy the design and will personally buy it but not because it has modern dolch in its name.

While I also think that names are not important I think there is no need to create unnecessary confusion. Everyone who programmed a little bit knows that you can just call your variables whatever you feel like but in the end it's better to choose names that are descriptive.

Just call it GMK Modern Light. There is no GMK Modern besides your Dolch set, at least that I'm aware of,  and you can still show off the origin of the set.

I think that this color scheme, involving the darkened ESC and Enter accents, would be much better as the base-kit than the pink and green options. The black TGR board flows really well with the monochrome look. As I am sharing my opinion, I hope this statement isn't perceived as a "rant" as well.

I do agree that the accents should be flipped around with colored accents as an add-on and the dark gray be in the base kit. It would be cheaper as you have two custom colors in the accent kits and one in the base. Would make more sense

My 2 cents on the naming (I don't think someone brought up this reasoning).

I think the name MD Light makes sense because you have colorschemes like Solarized Dark and Solarized Light, etc.
AFAIK Dolch was named that way because of the original Dolch boards, and a Dolch Light doesn't exist.

I'm sure a part of the reason for naming it Modern Dolch Light was also to bank off the name recognition?

I can confirm that this is absolutely not the case, that thought didn't cross our minds lol. We didn't figure people would care as much about the name as they do  :)

"ah no it was just a coincidence we swear"

I honestly don't understand why there's so much drama regarding the naming. janglad already explained why it's named Modern Dolch Light and Dixie posted a render visually depicting how Modern Dolch Light is derived from Modern Dolch. That's more than enough justification.

Re-naming to Muted R2 makes no sense since the original runner of Muted is no longer actively involved in the community as far as I'm aware, and has already turned down others who have approached him to try to re-run Muted.

It's clear that concerns regarding the naming have been voiced and received without change. If you still have such a big problem with the naming, protest with your wallet and just don't buy the set.

Yes - R3/R4 PgUp/PgDn in base. I guess if those two keys push the base into a different price bracket I get it. This set is going to sell over 1k+ though so it would be nice if there were a few keys added in, like with what happened to Metro/Bento.

you would think after the man in the high castle disaster dixie would put more thought into his interest checks instead of coming off strictly as an opportunistic marketer

Marketing:
Quote
noun: marketing

    the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising.

There's a word for non-opportunistic marketers: unemployed.

While my first thought was "hey this is like muted", my second thought was "I like it." As far as the name - I can see this as a photo-negative of MoDo. I can see how MoDo inspired it, and I can see how they tried to be subtly different than Muted.

I just find it ignorant and quarrelsome to call someone out for "opportunistic marketing" on a forum devoted to "Interest" checks - the entire IDEA of this forum is to see if the OPPORTUNITY to run something exists.

Just let fan bois be fan bois.
My apologies for trying to continue a friendly conversation and stick to the topic of the thread. However, your answer does not help clarify my confusion. I never once stated that I disliked this set, in fact, I very much like it. I would most definitely participate in this if I did not currently own a similar set. Perhaps if enough interest was generated to influence some minor design changes, I would be willing to purchase myself a set. I was unaware that users are not allowed to participate in the conversation of interest checks even if there is a high probability of not joining the group buy. Are we not allowed to encourage changes in the design?

What room is there for advice on something like this? It is crafted and posted to sell. I would be surprised to see if much changes. Vendors end up reading a lot of "Yes I will buy this!" which is the same feedback they would get on any other advertising platform.
I'm also not suggesting this as an issue as it's taken years to find out what works best for the most amount of people, and vendors have found something that does work.
I feel this sub-forum is losing it's initial purpose is all.

Why does the font of the legends look so thin in the renders? Is this done on purpose?

Alpha legends will be same GMK ones as always. Iím in the process of making my render legends more accurate. The font on these is more accurate compared to my old ones but they are indeed a tad too thin which I will fix in the future :) Itís a lot of work to overhaul legends haha

In renders the Pg Up and Pg Dn key sometimes have a space between the two words and sometimes don't but as far as I know the molds don't exist for them yet.

PgUp -> Pg Up
PgDn -> Pg Dn

Could this get fixed with this set?

It always bothered me and I think it just gives it an overall cleaner look.
With this set probably reaching a high number I would love to see this getting fixed.

Sorry if this has been brought up before but I usually don't read through a lot of GMK threads.

Edit: Although I'm not so sure anymore after looking at the renders for a bit. I'm kind of used to them being together now but it still bothers me a bit that a some renders of GMK sets show both variants.

I already paid for GMK Dracula and I don't have enough money for this.
GMK Dracula is my first GMK keycaps and it also will be my last.

not enough money!

come on, one more

I used to play Civilization and I was, like, "One more turn, one more turn..."

Now I'm into mechanical keyboards and I am, like, "One more set, one more set..."
three moreee, thats it. no more

A guy in my group chat once said this for those debating whether or not s/he should purchase a keyset/keyboard/artisan: "Debating yourself on whether to buy or not only delays your shipment." lol (In other words if you're debating about something in this hobby you're most likely going to get it at one point if you don't now, and that you may end up paying a lot more if you're able to get one in the future... so when in doubt- always FULLSEND.)

My only request for this set is to go back to the standard numpad with arrows and sub legends. There currently is no row 4 delete key since this was removed from the numpad. I understand the "clean" looks but I'd rather have a more standard set for an 1800 layout. Just my preference.

In that case, the numpad wouldn't really be in line with what is arguably this sets greatest attribute: cleanliness.

wouldn't you still have to pay all of the taxes, it would just get rolled into the initial price?

You're right, but there's also the brokerage (duties) element that can vary wildly in price when packages go through customs. It's much preferred to be able to budget for a set without surprises through a proxy.

Correct, I can look into this but I have a feeling that volume in Canada won't be large enough to actually make it much cheaper for customers since there are added costs (shipping from GMK to the proxy being more expensive per set at low volumes, additional operational costs and profit margins for the proxy etc).

Looking at GMK Rudy right now, the Canadian cost for the base set is quite reasonable (189CAD versus 172CAD post-conversion on Cannonkeys) after taking into account all the factors you mentioned. Even the base duty fees are a minimum of $10 before adding on tax when receiving a set as an individual.

Hopefully you can give it some thought!

That's partially because Deskhero applies taxes afterwards during the payment section, so it would actually be 189.99 + 13.39 for shipping (for me, around the same as shipping from cannonkeys actually), then 13% tax on both results in 26.44 in additional taxes. So not really much difference in the end(?). so the cost of the actual set would be around 215 (190*1.13), only a better deal if you expect to pay more than $43 in duty fees when buying from the US proxy.

That seems well within the realm of typical fees that someone would encounter for a set coming in from the states; which is the whole point of the Canadian proxy, to stabilize the costs: I know I'll be paying 215 for the set versus the possibility of paying even more at the door from a US vendor.

It also reduces shipment time in a way for us Canadian folks. Once a cdn proxy sends it out it would reach us in a few days. Where as shipping from the us could take weeks, depending how long customs wants to hold on to the package.   Just whole less uncertainty if a cdn proxy was available.

Hey everyone!

First a general update on timing, GMK Modern Dolch Light will run in February from the 2nd until March 1st!

Secondly, a popular request was having proper Apple style icons for the bottom row in the Modern Kit. We're considering changing the kit to the one linked below. We'd love some extra feedback on this kit though and have made a form for that. Secondly, we're also slightly worried making the kit full Apple style might "eat up" the command kit. So if you're still interested in that kit please fill out the form too!

  • The product owner/designer owes no justification nor reasoning to the consumer for any decisions they make with regards to their own product. This is purely done as a gesture to the consumer, and as a consumer, it shouldn't be expected that the product owner beckon to every request that's thrown at them.
  • If an issue regarding kit structuring has already been addressed, the designer has obviously already taken into account the viability of the request with regards to the overall MOQ risk and financial incentives of said kit. Framing your personal desires as "it will help reach MOQ" or "increase sales" is counter-intuitive. The decision was made to structure the kits in the way that they are because research into said issue justified it as the optimal approach in the eyes of the product owner.

Yes, designer may choose to make choices without sharing their reasoning.  Although it could be argued that doing so defeats the purpose of an interest check.

 They asked to see proof that there was interest from Minvan owners, and we're merely expressing that interest. As this is an interest check, that is all we can do.

His "research" was just sticking to his IC form and nothing else.  Then he came into the discord server and his justification is that the board (which is the most popular 40% in staggered form) isn't being sold anymore, and therefore he shouldn't need to provide compat.  Then when challenged, his reasoning was that "I doubt many people in the community actually use the board considering the board was a kickstarter".  (His quote word for word) That is a take that just isn't true and one that spending 10 mins doing some research, he'd be able to see how many people do in fact, use the board on a daily basis.  (Not to mention how many variants are out there) 

It's HIS choice to run the see the way he sees fit, you are correct.  However as someone who likes the colorway of this set, it's frustrating to see reasoning that wasn't well researched as an excuse to not include literally 2 keys.

Why?

It's civil, and healthy discussion is good for the community, especially when people are ill-informed or have misinformation.

I'm looking to get a minivan from TKC when they start selling them in the next couple months, and MoDoL would look great on it imo. Would hate to miss out on the set just because it's missing one key.

Well, I remember how that end up in Olivia++ IC lol

Not that Iím saying it is good or bad, just stating the fact that it usually escalated into a full fledged compat war :D

I just want to reiterate that I would ask you to add the 2 keys necessary for the Minivan to the 40ís kit.  Your reasoning and rational were weak at best and I believe that you are ignoring many factors that would only help the 40ís reach MOQ when itís time for the GB.

Thanks!

This is quite a wonderful set, however it has come to my attention that it lacks the essential key caps in the "Obscure" 40% kit that lacks the compatibility with my current daily driver, the Minivan. I believe that it would help sales by adding the keys necessary for it to be a compatible keyboard with this key cap set and I would very much appreciate it if minivan was supported.

  • The product owner/designer owes no justification nor reasoning to the consumer for any decisions they make with regards to their own product. This is purely done as a gesture to the consumer, and as a consumer, it shouldn't be expected that the product owner beckon to every request that's thrown at them.
  • If an issue regarding kit structuring has already been addressed, the designer has obviously already taken into account the viability of the request with regards to the overall MOQ risk and financial incentives of said kit. Framing your personal desires as "it will help reach MOQ" or "increase sales" is counter-intuitive. The decision was made to structure the kits in the way that they are because research into said issue justified it as the optimal approach in the eyes of the product owner.

Yes, designer may choose to make choices without sharing their reasoning.  Although it could be argued that doing so defeats the purpose of an interest check.

 They asked to see proof that there was interest from Minvan owners, and we're merely expressing that interest. As this is an interest check, that is all we can do.

OP has actually listened to a lot of the feedback here.

filled up the form, but would like to request for R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn added to the base kit for 65% support. Thanks!

TKC has purchased the IP and is in the process of bringing them back to market. Not to mention there's over 2000 known in existence in the community

Yes you're right, this is my bad. I'm working on more renders for the GB and will definitely include some with accent spacebars!
