Sorry, I meant more keysets with purple, such as this one. I like both proposed colorways. I would have gladly given a shot at the purple alphas with #2, but the majority seems to prefer #1 according to the MD poll.
Also, I am not against the inclusion of another 2.25 Shift keycap.  :)

Massdrop will be the ones who would negotiate with GMK for the keycaps included in each kits! hope it does get added in the base kit to support certain layouts :D




Thank you guys for your all the support!

My only wish this Christmas is a tentative schedule in massdrop's queue!

Hope you all have a merry Christmas/holiday season!

Peace

Yo of course, I really do want it come to be and succeed. Happy new year to you too!

If we only do one due to GMK my vote's for icons but judging by thoughts amongst other threads legends may be more popular - as said though, I feel icons would suit this set particularly well.

Hey potatobot, I have been following this since you first posted the IC thread. I am so happy that it is finally nearing fruition!

I will definitely be joining the GB but I wanted to know if there is any chance of a add-on kit for specialty sized spacebars like the kit that was posted for the GMK Carbon set? I would absolutely love it if so (I am one of the few that need specialty sized spacebars for my VE.A) but even if not I will still be getting this beautiful set!!!

Hey everyone, sorry i couldn't give any major updates.

I've been held up by my schooling but the designs for the new novelties are coming up. (those are the only major alterations which will be made to this project)

Other than that, im definately considering replacing the mod legends with ICONS instead. A poll should determine this one i guess.

Since im really busy with my schooling, im not sure as to when i can produce the new renders. I hope i can provide them next month though.

Hey potatobot, I see on your post here that you will be switching to a black spacebar, but the original post is showing the pastel purple still. Is it confirmed we will be getting the black spacebar with this GB?

The black spacebar would be sold as a separate kit, depending on the vendor. I have not made final deals as to where this set would be sold yet.

I think that is the best option for GMK sets as they have very high MOQ requirements especially for custom colored sets.

That's great to hear! Personally I am a fan of text modifiers since they really make the novelties "pop" visually and they are more consistent with the alphas. With the bold colors of this set, less is more!

Also... I can't be the only one who finds the GMK icon for Caps Lock absolutely dreadful. Seriously, it looks like a child drew it!

Hoping I can convince a few more people before the poll goes up :D

Absolutely then opposite for me. Icon modifiers win. And I couldn't care less about the fact that the novelties popup more of less.

Text on the mods looks stupid to me, it is like some sort of keyboard for learners/ old people, those cases where you have to explain the exact meaning of each key.

"Now press the shift key"
"What"
"The key with an arrow."
"Is that the one near page up?"
"Nope."

I've never been big on purple but this actually looks really nice (the black alphas with purple mods anyway, reverse is too purpley for me).  Also I think icon mods are the way to go, feels more fitting for a set partially based on Accel World's Black Lotus (sleeker I guess?).

Welp, I voted for text mods and hope that others see the light. If this set will be run on massdrop, I wonder what the broader community's preference would be. Bear in mind that the people following this thread represent a small minority of the most interested fans (and we tend to be more picky!) :D

In any case, I think this set would look marvelous on the matte black Exent!

massdrop is cost prohibitive for us europeans. Maybe there's space for a proxy? Maybe the group leader can buy and resell some sets?

First post to say this will probably be my first GMK

and imo, mods with text are more consistent with control, alt, esc, top of the nav cluster etc. If text is for learners & old people, shouldn't everything that's text be either an icon or blank? I could go either way but I like consistency. Maybe let Massdrop decide if that's the vendor and MOQ is a concern?

Hey everyone, it seems like Icon mods is winning the poll.

Would ask thesiscamper to give us renders to have a better comparison.

anyways, im a bit stumped on the Novelty caps.

do you have ideas for them? I need to make simpler ones though.

Are any of the novelties in particular too complex?  Or are the issues with all of them?

Either way, too bad these won't work, I really love the top set of novelties and hope you don't have to deviate too far from them!

From what I've read, GMK can't do doubleshots if the designs are too "fine". I think the lines have to be of a certain thickness, so unfortunately it would seem that most of the novelties are a no-go, unless they were done with pad printing. IIRC, this is what GMK Hydro did with the Windows 95 style winkey.

I can't believe I'm actually going to buy a GMK...This set looks too good not to though.

I suppose it's nice to have one of every layout just so I can find out what the best is for me in regards to typing speed and accuracy, not just aesthetics.

Love the lotus novelties, but I feel like the MTG ones just don't have the same feel as the rest of this...They are a little too...Melty/wavy?

I would like to suggest R4 1u novelties.

For suggestions, have you thought about the butterfly? I believe that it is very iconic to Hime or her butterfly wings for that matter. Would be excellent to have.
Example: http://www.rightstufanime.com/images/productImages/699858500741_merchandise-Accel-World-Pin-Set-Kuroyukihime-and-Butterfly.jpg?resizeid=3&resizeh=600&resizew=600

Another is the actual EXE brain burst file called 'BB2039", I think that would be ideal for R4 as 1.5u, 1.25u or 1u. Though it's not exactly linking to her itself but I think it is good to include
