Yes and a proper 2nd b while we’re at it. Maybe just add those 3 extra keys to the base kit and move iso to numpad? I bet we have more Alice users than we do iso.

Post by: NerdyBiker on Tue, 28 January 2020, 07:05:47
This looks awesome!

I'd like it if more ISO compatability sets would include the UK @ key, maybe I'm unfairly merging two sets for my own benefit but it's pretty much the only key missing fron the standard ISO set so very rarely gets added in alone.

Now we'll need to distinguish BoW1 and BoW2 (not that it'd be a bad thing!).

I could make a mix and match with BoW1 alphas and BoW2 mods, for example.

(also, ISO alphas, blah blah blah, all y'all know what I'll be yapping about)

Depends on MOQ and kit design. Novelkeys gets a base kit every month often custom colors at 115 or 120$. GMK Dark cut the numpad out and the base is still 120 bc of low MOQ.

This photo needs to be color balanced. It's misleading. Because my GMK Minimal WS1 does not look yellow like that at all. If anything, it looks like clean, plain white paper. Not a yellow, tan, sun-washed white.

True photo is to demonstrate how ws2 matches pcb whites since it has more blue in it.

Love it, especially the text only mods surprisingly! I've never been big on text only modifiers, but certain sets can get away with it & this is one IMO. I think you should go all the way & have text on the arrow keys TBH!

Nice and clean, I've wanted this exact combo myself before so thank you for actually putting an IC together!!

Love the inclusion of F13 in the base kit and definitely +1 for extra B key in the spacebars kit.

You might be able to do some cool molecule inspired novelties as has already been mentioned, but I would say err on the side of keeping it nice and simple (and hopefully affordable!) with no novelties. I'd be interested to know a rough price for full base kit (NaClO + H2O2 in one kit) vs the kits as they're laid out currently, since more and more I'm coming to believe the relatively small savings from splitting the numpad off just aren't worth the increased value of having numpad in the base.

I'd be fine with either text mods or icon + text mods. If anything, text mods are better coz they piss off Pwner :p

With these being stock GMK colors I wonder if you could run two full base sets with the two most popular options. Text + icons and also text only or maybe icon only.

MOQ will only be 150 this will be very poplar. Just copy the exact keys from minimal and keep it cheap $99 and you’ll sell a **** ton.

Any chance for ortho/ergo?

Interested! I'd be interested in some kit with split spacebar support, as others might be as well with all the Alice layout boards recently.

Some suggestions:
  • Move R1 End, R1 PgDn to the H2O2 kit. It doesn't make sense to have them in base if you don't have a numpad. Those keys are only useful on 1800, CP and 96-key layouts when coupled with a numpad.
  • In their place, add R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn to the base kit to support popular 65%/75% right column options.
  • Use “System” and “Sys” instead of “Win” for the OS key legends.
  • Use “Caps” instead of “Caps↲Lock” as the stepped caps legend for a uniform, one-line look across the entire set.
  • We've had this discussion many times before, but I suggest using R3 \| instead of R3 #~ as the extra R3 ISO key.

Thank you all for the suggestions (and the people in the IC form)!
Please check the updated kits!

MOQ is 150 for GMK Dark, also stock colors, and it's 120$. My guess is MOQ 500 gets you the 99$ price point (that said, I bet 500 is doable).

MOQ 500 for Novelkeys usually means adding the numpad in the base and the set for 115.

please consider adding 1.5u Super, Code or Meta keys. 

Yes please. 1 R4 1.5 Super/Code/Meta or Fn key in base set.

Another vote for this. I‘d also love to see Command / Modern Kits like Modern Dolch Light has.

The R4 1.25u Menu, R4 1u Menu and R1 1u Back are quite unnecessary. Otherwise, yeah, that's good compat.

120$ for a base without a numpad is painful for pricing. Coulda been 250MOQ and saved a bit. Kit designs good though.

Anyone doubting this can sell 500 base kits?

I don't know how I feel about a UK vendor for EU considering the set might not make the 2020 deadline. MoDo Light is running right now and already has an approximate shipping time of late Q4 2020.

A couple of suggestions:

- I quite like the new cohesive (centered) mod legends first seen with with GMK 8008, but there might be an equal amount of people who dislike them.
- As I have already mentioned would HHKB support (1,5u Code and 2nd 1u Alt) be appreciated as it is quite the popular layout. Doesn't even need to be in the base kit.
- I would love to see a modern icon kit to be used with regular icon mods (A couple of examples are MoDo Light, Future Funk, 9009 R3, 8008). This could easily hit MOQ considering the demand for clean BoW set.

Looking forward to this set no matter what  :thumb:

I don't really think there will be an issue but it all depends on the rule change, if anything happens I'll figurue something out to make all parties happy

Should be fixed, what I mean is text+icon in base, and only one out of the two options(text only or icon only) will be ran as a child kit and the other one will be discarded, sorry for my scuffed English

I can't tell if this is a joke or not

but in case you aren't, that would most likely (a) not be approved by drop/originative (which I guess isn't the biggest problem) and (b) would be too close to WOB simply because the base colors are identical.

Icon mods  :cool:


I noticed you have 2 arrow HHKB backspaces (one in the base kit and one in the icon kit), not sure if that's intentional or not. It might be nice to change the one in the base kit to 'Backspace' or 'Delete' depending on your preferences, I always feel that's more cohesive with text+icon mods.

Agreed. Not only that, but if you're looking to run the base kit as icon+text it would make sense to have the icon-only mod icons centered since icons in icon+text mods are centered as well.

Consider adding a R1 = to the numpad kit to help support Mac layouts and standalone numpads.

A base kit with shipping and fees would be around 150€ or even more if the price will be in pounds, which is way too much for those caps imho :/

GMK Lead times are currently at 5 months or so for stock colours - Given we have over 10 months of the year left I'm confident we will deliver before Brexit changes anything (if it changes anything - we may yet end up with a deal).

That being siad - if the worst does come to the worst then I can ensure that EU sets are shipped from within the EU to prevent issue.

I'm definitely going to grab base plus odd kit. It's always worth having a set of white alphas to pair with various coloured mods, especially as most light alpha kits don't cover ISO UK.

Thinking about it I'm actually going to pick up Oblivion base now to pair with this!

Post by: konstantin on Sat, 22 February 2020, 01:10:54
As it stands, the extension kit is too small, so the cost per keycap will be high and the risk of it not hitting MOQ greater. A few keys that I see are missing that you might want to add to it are: R3 1.75u stepped Control, R3 1.75u Function (although I'm assuming that's what the current 1.5u key is supposed to be), R4 2u Shift, R4 1u Shift, extra R4 1u Ctrl. Maybe even move the F13 there.

Take a look at the Nautilus 2 extension kit and see if you can draw any conclusions from there.

I’m probably not going to get the GMK keycaps. Not because I don’t like the set, just because I have too many and BoW isn’t really my thing. That being said, I might try to pick up several of the X and O Rama caps to fill a macro pad with them if it fits into my budget when the time comes.

WS2 matches your average pcb white way better than WS1. Make sure to add plaid/ortho coverage somehow.

These are the two colours compared. WS1 being Minimal and WS2 being this

It's hard to say, it depends on how well the artisans' e-white coating will match WS2; they're different materials and different finishes after all. However, taking into account just the colors themselves — it would not look good. See the above picture. Minimal's WS1 looks dirty and yellowed in comparison.

For real, plenty of GMK sets have run with way more compatibility for like $110-120 recently

That's the trade-off of having small, more affordable base kits.

GMK text+icon is so inconsistent. The icons can be tiny (backspace), huge (windows), or intermediate, to the left of the text (shift, enter, backspace), without text (menu, windows), around the text (tab)... There is no rhyme or reason. They also crowd the surface grotesquely on ISO and split shift

The only set made in literally the last thirty years to pull off text and icons is /dev/tty.

I will buy this set if it offers icon mods (my preference) or if it uses text mods. If I wanted a keyset that looked like it came off a cheap old Cherry keyboard, I could quite literally dig one out of the trash.

To quote a recent example of GMK Ashes, the base had fullsize and iso support built into the kit, and costed $130.
This was with custom RAL colours and higher MOQ.

This set requires a MOQ of 150 as it’s stock GMK colours.

That's not the point I was trying to make. Better value ≠ more affordable. I'm sure this set would have been able to reach the same price point if it had gone for that kind of compatibility. Undoubtedly the value for money is worse with a setup like this, but some designers opt for it anyway just because of how attractive that $100 price point is. The cold, hard truth is that the majority of potential buyers aren't going to need the extra compatibility, so offering a lower price point makes more sense for them. Especially with how many sets are running each month now, each of them vying for those buyers and the buyers having to pick, the low price can really make a difference.

That being said, so can the value. I'm not defending this approach by any means; I'm just saying how it is and what the reasoning behind this kit layout might have been. I personally prefer a base kit with good compatibility that allows me to cover the weird layouts I use without spending too much extra. Simple and versatile sets like this especially should, in my opinion, have a good base kit because they have the potential to work on many different boards. But it is what it is.

Why does the kit for fullsize compat cost $150 using GMK colours.
There are several reasons that why I have decided to split numpad and iso from the base.
It could help to bring the cost of the base to sub-100 (hence 99.99 we are currently listing), I understand some people prefer to have more compat with a slightly higher price. The thing is most people don't need/don't ever use the numpad keys(also iso). Spliting them can make the Base kit more affordable while supporting most(imho) of the layouts this community use. I personally think a base cost less than 100 will make a big difference in sales, especially there are many sets running this month, and one of them is very similar to Bleached.
The MOQ for the base is set to 500. numpad and spacebars are set to 150, because thats how the IC form reflects. I am not confident to list it at 1000MOQ because (see the line above), so I am trying to do giveaways to the community and GB participants to make this more appealing.
Seperate Numpad kit is always expensive for GMK keysets, not to mention the numpad kit here also includes UKISO.

I know the people wanted more compat will be upset seeing this kitting, I am sorry but this is my apporach to it.
