Title: [IC] Sky Dolch - Phase 2 [NOW LIVE!]
Post by: sherryton on Mon, 19 September 2016, 18:57:36
www.kbdist.com/sky-dolch

Some keys are missing in the mock ups such as Stepped Caps Lock and a full RGBYO kit which we are aware of.

218 keys for $199.

Let me know what you guys think are missing from this set.

i prefer Win8 or Code or diamond in double-shot to win 98 in pad-print.
i am fond of magenta and yellow and other color legend MOD, keep them on.
MOD could be departed from base kit ? someone may have bought R1 SKY DOLCH. someone may like both base and mod.

Would love to pick the RGBY keys separately for us current sky Dolch owners.

I still don't know a whole lot about mechanical keyboards beyond the very basics, so something like this, while seeming excessive, at least will have everything I need for whatever I end up getting myself into.

A concern of mine is that when I finally start purchasing parts to put boards together I will not know enough not to get a cap set that doesn't work with the board I am trying to build. This seems like a nice, albeit expensive safety net.

Yes, we will look into Win98 (Double-Shot) or Diamond. I'm not a huge fan of the Windows 8...

Thanks for your words on the Magenta and Yellow keys :)

Bought... in my mind. I had a feeling this day would be coming. That is a lot of caps, but if I was going to buy separate mods for it anyway then it doesn't seem like a bad deal.

Edit: I see 1u  "00" but maybe a 1u "0" if we are being very thorough.

I'm admittedly new to this community but why exactly is this being offered as just one super large kit instead of as separate child kits? Why not allow what mods people want instead of forcing someone to buy the entire set. I would like to own a sky dolch tkl set but dont need it in Iso, and Whitefox, and with yellow mods, and magenta mods, and green mods, and....

It's really difficult from certain manufacturers to produce Child Kids. It's a lot easier to make the rest of the kits a reality by making it in one larger kit. Previously, we had about 65% of the keys for $180. I'm just trying to give a pre-order/early bird special to people who wants to pick up a Sky Dolch set!

Please consider the windows 8 key. I understand this may not be to the liking of some people but at the same time people like myself may not be fond of using the win98 key on such a beautiful set in 2016.

I know you are trying to make this set a endgame set by including over 200 keys. This seriously would be my end game if it included that.

Right? What is the point of buying literally 2-4 times as many caps as necessary for most boards. Even the normal 117 kits cover most everything, I understand it is easier and "faster" for GB hosts to have one big kit, which seems to be the trend lately, but damn. Catering to the masses != catering to literally everyone.

Edit: but admittedly 218 keys for $200 seems to be one of the best key to $ ratios I have seen from a GMK buy lately.

Post by: Vigrith on Mon, 19 September 2016, 22:59:15
I'll have a hard time spending $200 on a single set for a while since September has been so packed and October's looking busy as well but I'd say that's a pretty good deal for almost 220 keys of an awesome colourway; it's hard to cater to everybody and it does look like the trend lately is to have these kinda huge single kit buys, I'm pretty neutral on whether or not it's "better" than running multiple child packs but they're definitely nice for newer members who are unsure of what boards they'll be getting in the future - it's nice to have a (albeit expensive) safety net to fall back on as was mentioned by another user a few posts ago.

Good luck with the GB Sherry! Going to be hard for me to squeeze out the dough for this one but I'm in for Hyperfuse for sure.

As an owner of R1 Sky Dolch, I can say that the R1 Sky dolch had enough keys to fit my needs.

But I did get it @ r/MM for retail price rather than GB price.

I would like windows 8 key instead of windows 7. windows 95 would be fine too if it's doubleshot instead of pad-printed. vendor-neutral diamond is good as well. so to reiterate, any of these for the windows key is good: doubleshot windows 95, windows 8 or diamond.

I prefer if there were less keys bundled but <$1 per key is good and I feel like excess keys can be sold in the classifieds or on /r/mechmarket

It would help a lot to see a render of all the keys but since this is a preorder, I assume that the renders are coming.

This ish right here. Nice improvements, sherry. And holy hell, 218 keys with all of those mods. Love it. Pretty excited.

It's like Miami Nights without Ivan, :kappa:

Added: Why are some of the pink modifier's textless (i.e. the shifts)? Also, will you add the hhkb backspace and fn for the pink modifiers? There is no pink 1u windows keys, I guess instead there is 1u control and 1u alts? I am not sure about those two... much rather have the 2 1u pink windows and add pink fn and hhkb back space  :p :p

I think separating the magenta mods, but also R5 for the original Sky Dolch owners. I generally prefer these big sets, but in this case I already have SD and just want the extras.  However I'll buy it either way.

Woohoo! Looks wonderful.

Edit: Consider this a vote for any non-OS-specific mod keys. Code, blank, diamond, a turd (as someone else suggested); doesn't matter to me, so long as it is logo-free.
Title: Re: [IC] Sky Dolch - Phase 2
Post by: punkpc on Tue, 20 September 2016, 09:54:23
Please do Code or diamond in double-shot for the Windows keys. Even a Win8 key is better then the Win 98 key.

Post by: Endeavour1934 on Tue, 20 September 2016, 11:26:10
I agree with previous posts:
Win8/10 logo > diamond > 'Code' (or any other text) > blank > WinXP logo > whatever logo > a turd >>>>>> Win3.x/9x logo.

Everything else looks very nice.

EDIT: Hm, I'd also prefer the Modern Menu logo (square with 3 lines inside). Nowadays the 3 line symbol aka hamburger is the universal symbol for 'menu'. The old Menu logo (with the dropdown and the mouse cursor) looks very outdated (same as the Win 3.x logo!).
I get that some people like their keyboards to look retro, but for me (and maybe more people) cleaner, modern symbols are better and more beautiful.

Yeah... The Dolch look is a lot better imo. I've been waiting to do this since we got our first Sky Dolch set in... I really screwed up on the R5, but I was going after what Triumph Adler offered.

I think separating the magenta mods, but also R5 for the original Sky Dolch owners. I generally prefer these big sets, but in this case I already have SD and just want the extras.  However I'll buy it either way.

I might have to separate it. Gotta include all the previous buyers!

I'm going to give a date towards end of November.

I don't mind the large base kit. Frankly, I don't even mind the mods being a mandatory part of the buy. At $200 this is a great price. However, I do think it is beneficial not only to those who don't want the colored mods but also to those with Sky Dolch kits already to have the mods be made available separately. Buuut if this means that I'll have to pay more to get the colored mods and the base kit separately I may not approve.

Yeah, I might have to split it up. I would have just made these sets straight through the manufacturer, but I wanted to gather feedback on this Phase 2 before we move forward. I think I know where most people stand.

Post by: priyadi on Tue, 20 September 2016, 23:59:18
I like the set, but for $200 it would have to include things that actually benefit me, like Planck support or even Colemak layout. I don't care about 1800, R5, or 6u spacebar.

For win legends, may I suggest uppercase "CODE" from GMK TA Royal Alpha? They stand out better. Or if you can, maybe go for a new legend altogether like 'system' because I don't think 'code' is that well received (even if I do like them).

Hey Sherryton!

I am super excited to see another run of Sky Dolch for all the people wanting the set who can't find one. Always happy to see more availability for cool GMK keysets.

I have one request though, I would love if there was a compatibility/color kit with all the keys not included in the original group buy for existing owners. I would love full R4 and R5 support as well as the color pack without having to buy another whole set.

Either way thank you so much for running this GB!

The thing is they don't pay VAT (Mehrwertsteuer) when they order to the US, so the stuff that would be shipped within Germany would have to be done more or less in a different GB which is a lot of hassle.

Gmk won't ship them separately to Germany, but if you live near them take a chance and contact about possibly picking up your set (it can't hurt).

The costs increases by 20% if you have it ship within Europe due to VAT.

Thanks for considering, my suggestion would be for the base kit to include full size/1800/WKL and ISO (basically like all the keys here: https://i.imgur.com/oFMFpFH.png) and then have a separate kit with all the coloured/alternate mods. I'd imagine existing owners of Sky Dolch would like this option too!

Definitely want the old R1 keys + anything missing to cover a 65%.

Prefer a double shot win/meta key (vs pad print) so whatever logo works for that will work for me. Are the win95 keys extra or being offered instead of the original win8 logos? It's a little difficult to keep track of with the variance in windows logos (8 for original run, 95 in the cyan keys, and XP for everything else).

Not a fan of the RGBYO kit or Yellow shifts (reminds me of GMK Nightmare mods, fwiw) but I can see how people want the SOWARE-ish look.

Love the Magenta mod pack, wish it had the TADA pack keys too though so I could use it with my OG Dolch keys to fill a 65% board.

The Yellow Shifts is to complete the CMY pack. All the keys will be double-shotted. We are looking into Windows 95 and Diamond Keys.

I have that added for the RGB kit, and we'll add it for the Yellow Shifts.

Will we be able to do this and the $199 bundle price? I'd much rather just get everything if it ends up being $34 cheaper. I think having both options would be good. Might be a bit of a hassle on your end, but it will provide people with enough incentive to go all in on the bundle, without neglecting those who just want the separate kits.

I can't offer both options because it'll be less likely one will hit and the other will not.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up! I was assuming that it did come with one, but one of the pics of a full board threw me off. Right now I only have 60%s, a 65%, & a TKL, figured best to ask now during IC just in case. Although I do feel kinda dumb as you are right about ANSI. I'm still fairly new to mech KB collecting so bear with me, I'm learning!

Not a fan of the mixed textless and icon+text shifts (because of the difference in vertical alignment of the icon between the two).

Not a huge issue for me personally at the moment as most of my boards are 1.25u + 1.75u, but still limits the use of the keys for us that like a more coherent look. (A good compromise between having 8 shifts is to add one textless 2.75u (for ISO users) and one icon+text 1.75u (for ANSI users)).

In the past I always wanted Penumbra-like unique modifiers for GMK keycaps, but if you are not a Windows-fan, it's almost impossible for such a dream to come true - especially for non-standard layouts

I just checked the Sky Dolch II keycaps to see whether any ideas spark up, for personal usage

It seems to me that there are 2 different products, One Sky Dolch + CMY (soft colors) - and second, the RGBYO modifiers (strong colors) - which could be nice for Windows GMK Dolch users to buy as an add-on

I'm wondering how the buyers intend to mix and match the keycaps, would love to see keyboard-layout-editor sketches if anyone has any

After the price given , i prefer to buy a complete set with base and mod at a lower price.

PS:IF the price of  all of seperate kits are the same with complete set, i always  like them be sold at seperate ones.
if seperate kits' price is much higher than a complete set's ,i would prefer to buy one set at a lower price.

That might end up working out a lot better for many of us actually, what with all the craziness going on with so many GMK sets within the last 60 days.

EDIT: what does the base kit include? is it the set inside a plastic case on the pre-order page?

Kits will be open until January! The base includes iso, hhkb, winkeyless, 104 base, and 1800 kit :)

So I see that the windows key in that render is the Win 8 style. Does that mean the windows key in the base kit is also Win 8 as well?

If I order this along with the sky dolch accent will they be shipped together or seperately?

Sets will be shipped together unless purchased separately!

Yes, we'll be using old school Windows 95 on Winkeyless and modern Windows on Winkey.

Not quite cswanic. October 18 is when OrigCo is submitting the order to GMK and won't affect pricing.

The preorder price you see on OrigCo right now is the price you will pay until January when the sets come in. This price will not rise until after that, so there is zero difference price-wise if you order today, a week after Oct. 18th, or the day right before the sets arrive. The only difference is you risk the set selling out between now and then, but I don't think that should be an issue since sherry said they should be getting a sufficient amount of sets (~300).

Here's the post where sherry mentioned this:

The price will go up when the sets arrive. That's going to be towards January. We are planning to buy approximately 300 sets, so I believe that is enough to go around.

I'm thinking of getting the base set and shipping to Malaysia is $20, which is ok. Then I added 3 key cap case and shipping became $60! The key cap case doesn't add much weight, does it? Is it possible to maintain shipping at $20, sherry?

Shipping is determined by size and weight. The tray takes up a lot of space compared to loose keycaps in a plastic bag. That's my best guess for the sizable (har har) increase in shipping.

How much weight would empty trays add? As to volume, it's probably one or two inch thicker when you stack them. Oh well, I'm guessing I'm out of luck.

The trays are much bigger in terms of area they take up compared to the bags. They are much bigger in both length and width.

I know, but I ordered the Base set with Tray and shipping was $20.
Ordering extra 3 trays means just stacking them on top of the Base keys with Tray, which should not have added more than two inches in height nor additional weight.

You know USPS has standardised box sizes? even if it was only adding 5mm to the size, if that makes it no longer fit in the standard sized box, you will have to get the next size up!

Is there, by any chance, a 1u R1 shift somewhere on the set? Parent or child kit. I am guessing there is none according to the "old" renders. I'm thinking if I can fill up a JIS layout with this set, except for the spacebar which is a lost cause because it is 2.5u

ill probably use stock keycaps for it if there is none

I see the "6u Spacebar and 1.25u Fn" listed as a bullet point under the Keycap Kits. So does that mean I need to purchase the Spacebar kit to get the 1.25u Fn key?

November 11 then mid-January.

The problem is that I have ordered over 250 sets, but over 100 sets has been occupied. I may have to change my order to get more from GMK, but it still might be limited between now and the time it comes in. I definitely want to keep enough to have for the store as well.

You bill Sky Dolch R2 as a 75% compatible keyset. There's not 1 R3 keycap for a 75% layout.

Shouldn't it at least be TADA68 compatible since it's your headline keyboard in that style layout?


I take it back, I missed the text at the bottom about the R3 Pg Up key. You can make a 68 and a 75 work with these keys.

So based on that render it looks like the 'F and J' keys are scooped. Will there be a 'F and J' with homing bars? On your site Sherry it does say they are underlined just wanting a confirmation :)

Hey Sherry thanks for the reply. Now I guess to make things even more confusing lol. Now I checked back on your site and it looks like it has been updated to say that the F and J keys are scooped. However down below it says it comes with an extra barred set. Is that true?

If I order this along with the sky dolch accent will they be shipped together or seperately?

Sets will be shipped together unless purchased separately!
still hoping that the set would be sold as one bundle, it seems that it is not anymore? :(

And the time that I can save up monies is now gone, since the deadline is on October 18 haha

EDIT: what does the base kit include? is it the set inside a plastic case on the pre-order page?

Kits will be open until January! The base includes iso, hhkb, winkeyless, 104 base, and 1800 kit :)

Dolch (classic with white legends) is on my list, but the color palette of Sky Dolch overlaps with Hyperfuse and I am still debating.

Please try to order by October 20.

I have to add a $3 paypal fee + $2 exchange rate fee to each item to compensate for the transfer rate. I under-estimated the currency.

How long until the first "real" price increase after that? I don't care about the $5 increase you are talking about, but I'd definitely want to order before anything drastical.

November 11 then mid-January.

The problem is that I have ordered over 250 sets, but over 100 sets has been occupied. I may have to change my order to get more from GMK, but it still might be limited between now and the time it comes in. I definitely want to keep enough to have for the store as well.

so... about those updated renders? i dont want to make a pre-order in the blind on this one. Any word from GMK yet? 2 days left before price increase, and we still dont know what the ad-on kits look like.

Yes, mostly. The magenta pack, Miami pack, and RGBY kits are here: https://www.originativeco.com/collections/group-buy

Any differences between the old base kit and the new base kit are not independent, you'd need to buy the new base kit.

So, cyan legends on magenta base. :P

Image was stolen from one GSimon on GH and is of magenta GMK Cyan accent mods but I imagine the Miami Pack to be similar.

Kinda gives the impression they haven't got a scooby doo =S. I don't quite get how the set was supposedly meant to be shipping now and originative haven't heard anything yet and GMK 'are still awaiting from their production team for the latest news'.

Quote from their site: 'This is a pre-order. The order will be submitted to GMK on October 18. The item will arrive on mid-January.'

I get that it's a group buy so I bought it fully expecting it do be delayed as 99% of group buys are. It would just be nice to get actual clear info like: sorry guys we/gmk/both of us messed up/ran into some issues, production is 50% complete, expect it in a month or something like that.

Sorry, hope this doesn't come across as a rant. I'm actually not that bothered and I have every faith it will come together in the not too distant future, I just don't get the point in not being straight and actually saying what the hold up/problem is.

Appears that it is officially delayed according to the originativeco website. From what i can gather from the Kbdist update section, most of their orders get delayed so this doesn't seem out of the ordinary.

Quote
Note: This is a pre-order. The order will be submitted to GMK on October 18. The item will arrive on mid-January. ** currently delayed. Please check the news tab for updates (made when we get new information from GMK)

GMK Originative went off the website before it was shipped out to GB members.

It went back up after all order shipped out, the same thing could be happening now for Sky Dolch

Unfortunately ALL of the group buy items on Originative have been removed, so it's hard to say if that's the case.

We took it off to hold pre-orders for now. Many people are continuously ordering in-stock with pre-order item. It'd be much easier to just the 'in stock' items right now.

Sky Dolch looks like it's coming in March while Honeywell is still on the right timeline.

IMO, I think they saw it would be easier to add the other person's order to ours. It would save cost. It's just a possible theory, but I have no idea why it should take this long. All of the other items have been delivered to us 1~2 weeks early. Maybe there's just too many orders (gmk penumbra?)...  (:

We got a message from GMK last night. They told us Sky Dolch will most likely be completed this week and enter the sorting process. The shipping should be ready in two weeks. That's estimated to be on 3/20. Arrival should be around 3/23, and we will have it all shipped by 3/27 or 3/28.

Just tracked that down and I think you might have have misunderstood Sherry. He was talking about the Dolch Reborn set, which Kekkon ran (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=85147.0). Miami Dolch was name given to the DSA set, but Kekkon renamed it for the GMK run.

It was very similar to Sky Dolch but featured magenta legends for the base mods and cyan legends as an add-on. Sherry was just saying that the Dolch Reborn set is basically a reconfiguration of Sky Dolch v2 since Oco was already offering a magenta legend add-on, etc. In fact, I think the Sky Dolch delays might be due to Dolch Reborn being mixed with Sky Dolch by GMK for production (100% speculation on my part).

So based on that reading, I'm pretty sure Sherry didn't say anything about the Miami kit for Oco not being made.

If i understand it correctly, Accessories = Kits.

What gaiden just said. The Sky Dolch accessories are the following items:

RGBYOD
Magenta Dolch (including Yellow Shifts)
Miami Accent

This excludes the Sky Dolch Accent Kit.

I believe he think it's still the old pricing where I was announcing one huge kit for $220. I don't know if he realized that this isn't in the interest check stage anymore and it has proceeded months ago.

As soon as we can ship these all out.

It's going to be a tough week because we just got in another set of group buy items and the lustro/weaven are shipping to us as well.

Thanks again for all your hard work bringing an awesome site like that.

I just received my Sky Dolch, and it's generally looking great  :thumb:

A few keys of the E profile rows (function & numbers keys) had some issues in the back, however, where one of the four "flanges" (which limits key attachment dephs to the switches) where smeared about, particularly raised above the plane of intended depth limit, resulting in these keys being raised higher than its neighbours, when attached to my keyboard. I noticed that this particular flange (the one directed towards the user of the keyboard, for each key),  when not smeared about, seemed to be present for some keys, and absent for other, so I assume it isn't necessary that this flange is present, given that the remaining three are intact.
(http://i.imgur.com/Oc8y2fb.jpg)
(http://imgur.com/a/SusMb - Pardon the poor quality, the best my camera could do ...)

Is this smeared flange situation common, and something I should attempt to correct myself (sharp scissor etc)? I haven't ever "worked" with GMK plastic, so I don't want to attempt some fix that might brittle-kill the whole mx stem slider. Or, is this a manufactoring issue that should be prompted to request replacements?

Thanks!

I have came up with pricing and this is what we are seeing.

Please add in if you want to see the kits together or separate!

Base: $135 - 148 keys
Magenta+Shift Pack: $56 ~45 keys
RGBYO: $42 - 29 keys

It seem there is confusion to all the accent kits. They were all made and they should be ready with the Sky Dolch. Estimated shipping date is 3/28.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=88163.0

I couldn't pass up on those accent kits, because I've been wanting these since I got the Sky Dolch set in.

Just a quick question, what are the "Sky Dolch & Sky Dolch Accessories" vs. "Sky Dolch Kit"?

What gaiden just said. The Sky Dolch accessories are the following items:

RGBYOD
Magenta Dolch (including Yellow Shifts)
Miami Accent

This excludes the Sky Dolch Accent Kit.

Sherry, when were yellow shifts dropped from the group buy? I was kind of counting on these for my CMY theme, and they didn't show up with my magenta mod pack

  • I also had a couple of keys that had the extra bit of plastic underneath that caused them to stick upon bottoming out.
  • The standard spacebar had some unfortunate scratches on the top of it right out of the box.

Should I send something in through the regular Contact page on the Originative website?

Thanks for looking into it. This is the colorway of my dreams and I'm super happy with every other part of the set.  :thumb:

I don't have the broken bit of plastic sticking up on mine but I do see that the whole set has either 3-4 flanges or just a half molded (derp) 4th flange on a handful of my caps.

Checking against my GMK TA set; I don't see this non-uniformity present there.
I'll check my GMK Skeletor set when I get home.

You may want to call your regional customs office. The way USPS tracking are done, they mark the packet as "Delivered" once it has been handed over to the local mail handler (In your case it's probably Deustche Post or something similar).

This is how it works in the UK also. My packet has been marked as Delivered and I know for a fact that it's waiting at the local post depot because I just got a slip from Royal Mail yesterday demanding me to hand over my hard-earned cash for customs :P
