Title: [IC] GMK Monokai Material - Launches September 4th
Post by: Oblotzky on Mon, 16 March 2020, 12:29:12
Hello,

I have a new IDE themed keyset for you. Monokai is very popular, but I personally never really liked the standard warm version, it's too dolchy for me. I prefer colder grays, so after a lot of experimenting and rendering I opted for the Material version of the theme. Additionally, I am making this one with a single base color unlike Oblivion/Penumbra/Dracula/Solarized Dark. Lastly, seeing the Git Base Kit in Oblivion V2 being most successful, I chose to have those as the default legends for this run. I really don't want to offer multiple Base Kits in the first appearance of this set, but I will very strongly consider running a Regular Base Kit by itself once this has shipped after a successful group buy, so a Round 1.5 I guess.

The colors will be matched to RAL tones. I will pursue having the base color matched and finalized before the launch of the group buy as this color is vital for the set to come out great. The RAL's I am currently eyeing for this are Stahlblau and Tiefseeblau. The other colors should be much easier to match so I will do those between GB closing and production start as is the norm with most GMK keysets.

Kit wise, I want to focus on the basics. There's a Base Kit that covers everything essential and the 40bit kit for Ortholinear/40%/Split keyboard users. The 40bit kit is still Work in Progress because I need to go through all the layouts again and make sure the color/legend distribution works well on everything. The color distribution will be different especially for the Ortholinear layouts compared to how I did it on Oblivion V2, and the current kit forces arrows be used on the bottom row for those. I am not sure if I want to add Colevrak/International kits.

Very understandable, which is why I am working with RAL colors (GMK's plastic supplier has more accuracy with those, Solarized Dark was 'matched' against HEX values if memory serves right), and want to get the base color done sampling much earlier.

40s kit is hardly a 40s kit. It's missing some vital keys. I'd pair it with with the Dracula 40's kit but then it's hardly a Monokai theme.
And that's the issue. It's hardly a Monokai theme at all.

Could you point out the keys that are missing? This would help me greatly in improving that kit.

Man...I do like a lot of your stuff, but I cannot in good faith support someone who continues to drop Minivan support, even now that Evan doesn't own the company anymore.  I may only be 1 person, but you continually lose out on an additional buyer of your sets each time. 

Hope you change your perspective one day.

Actually the R4 1.75u isn't MV exclusive, as it is necessary to provide proper stragger on most 40% boards. Looks like that is part of the base kit already. Good luck with the IC and eventual GB.

This. Don't abbreviate what can be spelled out. There is no abbreviation anywhere else in the set so this would bug the hell out of me (okay technically not true, Git legends like Init and Diff are abbreviations, but those are pre-determined by Linus, I had no say in those).

That argument falls apart if you consider that Print Screen and Scroll Lock can be spelled out in full too, but Print and Lock are chosen instead for aesthetic reasons. It should be the same with this. I am aware that there is a difference between abbreviating a word and omitting one, but the end result is effectively the same, so it doesn't really matter imo.

Edit: Also, the fact that some legends that are fixed in place are abbreviated is perhaps a sign that the rest of the set should be made this way too (where applicable) to keep the design cohesive and the overall look consistent.

For the 1.75u R4 key, MiniVan users might be OK with the 1.75u Checkout key that's in the base kit.

In that case, it's only a 1.75u R2 key that's needed to complete the 40s kit for MiniVan users.

To my knowledge, GMK does now offer 3u Convex bars, so I will consider adding it. What other layouts would require a 3u Spacebar (that can be fully covered by this set otherwise)?

R3/R4 Page Up/Page Down keys please! Otherwise, I may be in for a base and 40s set.

I will consider this.

Colevrak plz

Would also like to express my interest in a colevrak+ kit.

Thanks for voicing interest, I will strongly consider International/Colevrak as I might have a strategy of how they can be combined with a future R1.5 for the Regular Base Kit.

That looks great!!

It will have a vim kit??

This round will not, if it does well enough and there is sufficient interest for the Regular Base Kit Round 1.5, I can add it there and you'd be able to buy it for your Git Base Kit.

Correct, it would be the Regular Base Kit from Oblivion V2 but in this colorway.

finally turn to Monokai, it's great. I am big fan of this theme.
I need to say:
1. R4 line 'Rebase' orange is too similar to 'Oblivion',  and the color in Monokai is more yellow '#e6db74'
2. please put a 2u 'shift' in R4, it will feed left 60 players.
3. new grey is nice in rendering.

1. I can see how it looks similar, but it's more orange for this set

Oblivion - Monokai Material
(https://i.imgur.com/d5R98Co.png)

The color also exists in Monokai Material

(https://i.imgur.com/FJjsedT.png)

and I picked it over the pale yellow one because

#1 It doesn't look as good IMO, too pale
(https://i.imgur.com/HycTRFD.png)

#2 It makes the whole set come too close to Dracula
(https://i.imgur.com/cySM3VM.png)

2. Will consider adding alongside R3 R4 Page Up/Page Down

3. Thanks, I agree!

I'd really like to see be orange legends be a lighter, more yellow heavy color like in some Monokai variants.

But that's just me. I know you like to keep original themes consistently and I can respect that.




Pssst....also minivan base case colors would look incredible topped with Monokai. Please consider Minivan support. :)

Round 1.5 would be a full Regular Base Kit ala Oblivion V2 with a 40bit kit to go along with (also having regular legends instead of Git ones).

The strategy for International/Colevrak I have in mind: Offer both in this group buy with the Git Base Kit, then buy out the remaining units (I assume both will need help to reach MOQ 100), and sell those extras alongside R1.5 as limited kits (since not another batch is produced, just the extras from this Git Round). This requires commitment from the Vendor(s) though so it is just an idea for now.

Nice changes. Base kit compatibility is looking good now.

Would you consider changing the R4 \| ISO key to R4 <>? I've heard some ISO users express aversion to the double \| setup because of the duplicate legends. R4 <> solves that problem, but it isn't inconsistent like the partial ISO-UK R3 #~, R4 \| variant. I think R3 \|, R4 <> (what some call US ISO, terminal style) is the way to go for baseline 4-key ISO support in sets.

As as an annoying Dvorak user, I get it. I mean, for Colemak/Dvorak/Whatever, the regular QWERTY legends are still useable since the layout is the same. But if you're "International" then lack of an ISO Enter key + 1.25u shift can really mess you up, since that changes the layout for you. Luckily over the years these keys have started to be included in more base kits.

I don't know about better, they're both nice in their own way and match different themes. I already had Oblivion, so I'm not going to order this, but if you're into coding and want a set to match your preferred IDE theme, I can see the attraction.

I'd be so down for a normal base kit but I assume that's definitely not going to happen with this first run? :(

+1 for a UK ISO in the base kit, just need R1 "2 £3 and R3 @' ~# you are there
A full international kit is overkill for most ISO users

It is true that a full international kit is overkill for most ISO users. It is also true that UK ISO in base is overkill for most ISO users.

Agree, but what's important is the orders, would the UK keys stop you from ordering the base? I doubt it. But I wouldn't consider a set without them.

On the cost side it's up to the designer to negotiate a right price for themselves so not my place to comment

As somebody in UK, I found my life immeasurably improved when I just switched to ANSI. Really the only thing you have to get used to is that @ and " have changed (which isn't hard, because it matches what's on the keys) and then a little AutoHotKey script fixes the pound up just fine. I hist shift+4 once, I get £, I hit it twice, I get $ - I wouldn't go back to ISO now.

I mean, they're exactly the same mods as GMK Oblivion Git Base and people like them fine (based on them outselling the standard, which is why they're now the default for this set, as Oblotzky explains)

Noooo don't give up on the heritage...

Yeah I can see that work for me, but I quite like the aesthetic of the big ass enter, breaks it up a bit and great for novelty creatives

Also switching back and forth between this and a laptop keyboard (can't avoid still) is a hassle

I mean, the same case could be made for any extra keys that someone could ask for. For example, I rarely buy sets that don't include certain keys I need for the layouts I most commonly use, so I understand where you're coming from. But that doesn't mean that including those keys is always a good idea. This kind of argument is flawed: Sure, UK keys wouldn't prevent anyone from buying the set in and of themselves, but those keys don't come for free, and so the additional cost might.

The question is whether adding those 4Ė6 keys would be worth the price increase to everyone's base kits. This is the bottom line, and it's reflected in the number of orders, as you said. The answer to this is likely no, as ISO-UK users only make up about 2Ė3% of all users (source (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/1vyY5EjTfzo6YXp_xwQYN_ffcoB0fXdNl8nc0WDteobs/htmlview#gid=0)).

There's not much a designer can do to reduce the price of a larger kit, other than go with a higher MOQ (which has its own risks) or forgo their profit margins. It's in (almost) everyone's best interest that the kits be well optimized.

Not an issue per se, just a design question: in the 40bit kit, for what is presumably Lower and Raise, why make them "Clone" and "Push"? Why not make them "Pull" and "Push"? I understand Pull is elsewhere, but why not swap Clone with Pull?

Not asking for the change, just asking for insight as to the decision.

Oblotzsky said elsewhere that he's not supporting Colevrak for sets for the time being. As a Colemak DH user myself, I totally get the request for it, but Drop had colevrak kits left over for several big sets for like a year after they last ran - GMK space cadet and SA Oblivion I think. It just doesn't make economic sense to run them (for GMK sets especially) where vendors have to buy extras just to make MOQ, but there's not enough customers to buy them. Heck, a dedicated gmk WoB Colevrak set barely made MOQ, and that was with several  of us Colevrak enthusiasts buying multiple sets.

I have come to accept that Colevrak just isn't going to be supported outside KAT (which allows for it due to its different MOQ structure). It sucks, but that's just the reality.

After a few weeks of typing on KAT, I have to say GMK is redundant to me. Even if they were the same price and offer the same level of compatibility, I'd never buy a GMK set again.

Don't get me wrong - I love KAT. For my daily driver, I alternate between a planck with KAT milkshake and a preonic with GMK pulse. But for those that insist on GMK or SA (and I can see why some would) I'm just saying I think they need to temper their expectations unless something changes with GMK's MOQ approach.

Believe me, expectations are very much tempered haha. I was just holding out for this set as oblotzky had left the door (slightly) open on colevrak support. I'm glad to hear that KAT is proving to be an acceptable substitute. I'v joined a few GBs and am waiting to give it a shot myself.

Also, question. In a future extension, you mentioned vim arrow keys potentially. Would you add some extra color options for other git commands like a blue Push key since the Vim key takes up the Push button?
