Edit: If it was intentional, maybe make the J blue?

Like the theme
Like that I don't need to get an additional accent kit to switch things up
Consider blue or white arrows? Consider additional arrow set in base kit?

GLWIC, really hoping I can pick up a set :)

It's not just you. There is a second 6 in the base with orange tho. I think there should be F5 in orange too, to make the change of color round, like a portal. I already suggested this to smokey.

Post by: holer on Tue, 08 December 2020, 04:56:05
I love the idea and the colors!

I have never been a huge fan of different accent colors on the alphas, so I will probably pass on this set due to this. But overall very cool, and good luck with the IC  :D

Post by: SMOKEY on Tue, 08 December 2020, 05:09:06
I hear what you are saying about the orange F5/6.
I had a look at it initially but for me that looked completely out of place.
If I get more comments on this I possibly would consider it again, or at least play around with some ideas.

Would love to see spacebars kit to complete the compat, plain ol' WS1 bars would be good enough :)
since you already have an extra B in base kit (nice touch btw, dual colored B's)

As stated above in the OP, a Bars Kit is in the works!
The B will most likely go in there, but I want to keep the 6 in base for people who would like to have the 'circle'.
And it's WS2, not WS1 :)

I’ll make the same comment I made over on the thread for KAT Quantum: given that you’ll likely end up competing with one another, how about joining forces and creating a keycap set together that combine the best of both worlds?
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Gateway | IT IS A LIE
Post by: eatedcookie on Tue, 08 December 2020, 07:02:36
I have the same concerns for this as everyone else lol. The deskmats are super bomb tho, so regardless of the competition I think I would definitely get them :thumb:

hmmm.... something just feels off about the f5-f8 keys
not quite sure how to put it but the black on blue just doesn't belong there.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Gateway | IT IS A LIE
Post by: GaNeBaL on Tue, 08 December 2020, 07:58:11
the base seems to be leaning more bluish, i think maybe having f5-f8 be orange might look a bit more balanced? since print, scroll and lock are blue. love the theme though, maybe have a wheatley novelty in blue, since glados has the orange-yellow colored eye.

I don't see how a KAT set will be competition for a GMK set.
They are completely different profiles after all.

I love it. huge portal fan and this is amazing, not really fan of the two color alphas but i get the idea.
maybe you should add some grey to the set? portal had lot of light grey.

This is honestly hideous, and you couldn't pay me to take those novelties. I thought Taegeukgi was bad but this is visually offensive. This looks like something you'd get on Amazon for probably more than it's worth.

And I'm assuming you have permission from Valve or you believe that entirely copying their art for two games is totally okay?

I think the concept behind the set is difficult to nail in doubleshot. Dyesub and tripleshot opens up a lot more options and allows for more nuanced approaches to the idea.

You have alice B but no bars to support it.
A lot of those icons for the mats/novs are straight ripped from the source material, and some of the novs look impossible for gmk to do due to them being so close to the edge.
Why am I stuck with arrow keys that don't match the color of that side of the board?
I've seen this set on taobao and amazon for the last five years why would I want to pay a premium for it?
Your thread is doing a lot better on reddit, but that doesn't mean there are a multitude of flaws you should consider.

At least you're not appropriating cultures with this set!

If you don't like it don't buy it?

"Visually offensive" lmao
How can you get so upset over a colorway :'D

Regarding IP:
The Aperture logo is just a generic camera aperture icon that has been used on other keycap sets before (JTK Photo Studio) and is way older than Portal or even Valve.
Same goes for the Exit man and the cake. Neither of those are copyrighted or trademarked by Valve.
The P-Body and Atlas logos weren't even used by Valve at all so it's not really their artwork. Those icons were created just for this keycap set (of course their source of inspiration is very clear).

The only minorly questionable thing is the companion cube because that is (afaik) actually trademarked by Valve.

Maybe actually reading the IC completely would help...

While all of this is relatively true. GMK still has final say on what they will or will not produce. We've seen this with rejected novelties in Hero, Zooted, and flat out rejecting to produce White Wolf.

True. We'll see if GMK will be ok with this.

Still can't understand why they rejected white wolf tho...

I like the Base Kit colorway.  I would say there is an opportunity here to introduce some red accents or novelties (red from the Sentry Turret sensor).  I'll be curious to see how this plays out both with respect to the IP considerations and keycap profiles.

Specifically for this set, I don't like how you already have both collaborations and vendors already announced on the IC upon release. At that point, it doesn't feel like an interest check and more of just a vanity post.

I'm going to say the same thing on KAT Quantum's IC thread as well, but instead of both of you rushing out your IC's, [whether or not you didn't rush it, it feels incredibly rushed], I wish you both would have thought about really fleshing them out at the same time, and releasing them at the same time as well-thought out interest checks. I like and dislike things about both versions, and honestly this could have been a wonderful collaboration between two designers in the community. As much as you say you both say there are no hard feelings, just know that the way you both went about this turn of events, reflects somewhat poorly on both of you. You both let your pride get in the way of your IC's looking fully fleshed out and it just simply cannot be ignored.

Best of luck to you both.

I see on your colors sheet that you have labeled WS2 as #FFFFFF. Considering that this is a nearly impossible color to achieve on plastic as it is legitimately pure white, there is no way that this is the representative hex for WS2. Having spoken with GMK about this, #F6F5F5 is more representative of WS2. If you used #FFFFFF for your renders, your renders may not be great representations of the color in person.

RGB color codes are never representative of a plastic color because it always change with the lighting on the picture.
Especially for white plastic.

Thanks for pointing it out. That's a placeholder that slipped through.
Renders are done the right way, looking at Stormtrooper / Monochrome whilst.
I will correct the HEX, thanks again.

But please be aware, that HEX / RGB codes are never representative of a plastic color.

Love the set! Is there any plans for more kits, for instance ergo/ortho? I would really love to get the option to use this with my Corne. If there are no more sets coming, is it inadvisable to use R1 and R4 on R2 and R3 (since there are no orange 1u accent keys).I have never used a sculpted set before, and would like to know how big of a tradeoff it is. Nonetheless, GLWGB!

Great work with the set, it is refreshing color combo that will stand out. Looking forward to picking up a few sets.

40s / Ergo / Ortho is extremely difficult to run with this set, because of the split colors.
That rightaway means you can not reuse a lot of keys from the base kit for 40s.
For example, you would have to have an extra 1.75u and 1.25u Shifts just for the alternate colors.
I just don't think that is feasible to run, so I opted against it.
And yes, I would  not advise using keys from different rows in different rows.

Just a quick heads up:

After today's events, revolving around the allegations made against MUBAI / enoch_xu, effective immidiate this collaboration will not happen.
He is said to be the middle man for some dumb dumb chinese "makers"  who are cloning many maker's honest work and said to be in a very close 1:1 quality.
Some of the 'works' include CYSM, Artkey Universe, Brocaps, Alpha Keycaps etc.

I, myself, am a artisan collector. Faking, buying, selling and trafficking fake artisans is not cool!
Please buy and trade responsibly!

Today's the day for the GB to open, right? I don't see it on Kono yet, maybe running slightly behind?

Same with Deskhero.ca in Canada. Haven't seen any reason it's being delayed.

I love these color profiles they are so modern and classic, very nice, the `IT IS A LIE` key for backspace I'm thinking

Yeah, I love it! Sneaky clever yet not infringing on the source inspiration.

GB Thread is being prepared right now.

Set is LIVE in US, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, CANADA and KOREA.
ASIA following shortly.

We had a slight delay, bc GMK sent the quotes kinda last minute due to their heavy work load.
