[IC] GMK Nord
« on: Sun, 12 May 2019, 08:32:45 »

Keyboard: Polaris by Ai03
Welcome to GMK Nord, a keyset inspired by ArcticIceStudio's Nord color scheme!

GB information
GB date may get pushed back another 10-20 days, as communication with some vendors has gone silent (Asia). No quote from gmk yet. Some vendors have changed too. Deskhero.ca is now the Canada vendor and mkultra is the US vendor. Sorry for the setbacks and inconveniences.

Update
GMK is on leave until 2020-01-03. I'm hoping to get a quote at 2020-01-05 at the latest. If the quote comes in later, there are probably going to be more delays.
2020/1/10 - Still no quote from gmk. Although, there will be custom metal artisans and cables.

2020/2/1 - Quotes from gmk came in! Expect initial quotes for the kits in the coming week!


Pricing
We've got quotes from candykeys. Pricing for eu:
Main: 128 eur. MOQ: 250
Assembly: 150 eur MOQ: 100
numpad: 40 eur MOQ: 100
spacebar: 29 eur MOQ: 100
NORDE: 63 eur MOQ: 100
Novelties: 56 eur. MOQ: 100

Do note, there is a small chance that prices will change in the future.

Design
This kit was designed with two goals in mind: affordability and compatibility. Kits will be modified if there's a fair amount of interest in a certain change. All colors are in RAL.

Base Kit
The base kit covers most popular layouts (60%, HHKB, 75%, 65%, TKL).


Spacebar Kit
This spacebar kit is like any other spacebar kit, but also supports split keyboards.


NorDe Kit
The NorDeUk kit adds support for these languages: Norwegian, British, German, Danish.


Numpad Kit
The numpad kit was separated from the main kit to improve affordability, but maintain compatibility if anyone wants to outfit a numpad.


Novelty Kit
The novelty kit contains icon mods, vim arrows and nord novelty keycaps.



Assembly Kit
This kit was made with compatibility in mind. It supports most 40%, ergo and ortho boards.



Deskmats
I'm also offering two Nord deskmats, designed by PheonixStarr--they come in Light and Dark Themes.

Credits

First and foremost, I'd like to thank Pheonixstarr for her help with nord. She was always there when I needed feedback and she even made some awesome deskmats and renders for nord. I would also like to thank Dave from candykeys for providing me with crucial information about GMK, contacting vendors and marketing nord. Last but not least, I'd like to thank dixiemech for his invaluable support and guidance. Thank you guys and gals. Because of your support, nord is where it is right now. Most importantly though, I'd like to thank the community for vital feedback. It's always nice to hear how the set can be made better.

Ai03: Polaris 3d model
Ender: WY-68 3d model
Pheonixstarr: TI-65 3d model, renders, deskmats, (I've heard she has a rendering service too).
Arctic Ice studio: colors, name, logo.

Edit
There seems to be enough interest for a Norde kit, thus it will be either added to the "main" kit or branch off into it's own kit :)
2019/05/13 update: New 3d models for numpad numlock, /, * are being created. Single line prt sc, scroll lock, pause break are in the works too. 1.5 control has been changed from ctrl to control. 1u fn is going to be changed to meta. 1u 0 numpad key will be added. 1u 00 key is in consideration. Proper Norde kit is also in the works. Spacebar kit has been altered: there are now only 2 2u spacebars. All the other ones have been removed. 6u center set and offset spacebars have been added to the kit. 1.5u super/meta keys will probably be added to the main kit. barred
 homing keys have been added. Alpha colored spacebars are going to be added to the main kit and spacebars kit, although there is going to be one accent spacebar in the spacebars kit. one more 1u alt+ctrl has been added to the bottom row for hhkb support. Thank you for all of the amazing feedback :) .

Updates
Base kit - changed iso # r3 to alpha colors. Novelty kit: Added support for tsangan bottom row. Assembly: Better 40's support.

looks good. will get in. spacebar looks funny thou.. i think space bar should either be color of the mods or the alphas (not legends). might want to consider having a standard set of mods with the same colors as alpha. and then color mods as addons, i can live with color mods thou!

Cool color scheme. Much similar to Oblivion and Solarized/Penumbra as far as text editor / terminal color schemes go.

Would love to make some suggestions for the kit:

 Keys missing / revisions:
 - Spacebars look differently colored. There should be matching, alpha-colored spacebars.
 - Add modifier-colored `(tilde) 1u and \ (backslash) 1.5 keys
 - Add Alternative homing keys: F, J, and 5 barred -- assuming the F J and 5 in the main portion of the kit are all scooped.
 - Revise "Ctrl" on the 1.5u bottom-row keys to "Control"
 - Please revise the "Fn" 1u bottom-row keys used for Tsangan (7u spacebar) layout to Super so that it is consistent with the standard bottom-row keys.
 - Consider adding one more 1u Alt and 1u Ctrl bottom-row keys for consistency of HHKB layout.
 - Consider adding 1.5u bottom-row Super keys for HHKB layout consistency (using 1.5u keys programmed as the OS key)
 - Add Numpad zero (0) 1u bottom-row key for 1800/CP/split-zero layouts.
 - Consider adding 00 key for numpads
 - Consider removing one 2.25u Shift (there are three in the kit; I think only 2 are needed for Clueboard/660 layouts)
 - Spacebar kit:
   - add 2x 1uC keys,
   - add 1.25u blank key,
   - include both 6u offset and centered spacebars
   - there is no need to have 2x 1.75, 2x 2.25u, 2x 2.75u spacekeys. I believe only one of each would suffice.

 A few more uncommon suggestions
 - Consider a uniformly-colored F-row (dark modifier color)
 - Consider using R5 as the bottom-row profile -- molds are available for different modifier sizes now, thanks to Carbon R2!

I hope you can consider all of these!

Hey!

I don't think you should be allowed to call your set "Nord" without actually including any Nordic characters.

I'm interested. 100% in if you make it. I'd like the following kits:

- Ergodox
- Ortholinear
- Colevrak

Ergodox and ortholinear could be covered by an ergoplanck or assembly kit (like other GMK sets).

I don't think the current layout supports 1800?
There is no 1U 0 IIRC.

Suggestions:

The alt and Ctrl colors on the bottom row do not match on either side

No 1u "0" for 1800

Ctrl would look better as control

Consider 1 line scroll, pause and num as opposed to double line scroll lock pause break and num lock. Aesthetics.

Super keys for the tsangen bottom row instead of "fn" keys

Barred and scooped homing keys for "f", "j" and numpad 5.

I love the kit, and am totally going to buy it!

Are icon mods (like ones in GMK 8008/Modern Dolch) a possibility at all?
Also, colored mods with alpha legends would look nice and stand out a lot, but that might just be me. I really like the colors of Nord anyways and coloring mods would make them pop more.

Also signature code?

Icon mods would probably be possible, sadly, there are no available 3d models for them, so I can't render em :(

I'd buy it right now as is.  Thank you for including R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn, and 1U Ctrl, Alt, and Fn for the bottom row.  I see some people asked for the 1U Fn keys to be changed to Super.  If this is the usual GMK 112344, then you've currently got three 1U R4 Fn keys (two in the bottom row color, one in the shift row color).  Please leave at least one 1U Fn for the bottom row.

I've bee very keen on this set ever since your first reddit post. It's like if you took Oblivion and made it more blue and replaced those silly text only mods with icon mods, and those are both positives in my opinion!  :thumb:

LightningXI gave a lot of great feedback, but I'd also like to mention specifically for me alpha colored spacebars are a must (if not in the base kit, maybe in another) and R5 bottom row would be nice to see as well.

Big fan of this since the initial tease on reddit a week or two ago. Big fan of this and will definitely get this if it makes it to GB.

That being said, I do want to agree with a few of the points I've seen posted.

- I'm not the biggest fan of the spacebars, maybe an alternate color.
- Barred F/J pls
- Mod collered symetry keys
- 1.75 R3 Control/Function
- Uniform F row

There was some other good stuff posted as well, but these are the main ones for me.

Really hoping this one makes it to GB phase.

 I like the "striped" F row, but I agree on the spacebars. I would use alpha background or mods background to make it fit properly.

I like this, but it could use some tweaks IMO.

To match the simplicity and sophistication of icon mods, I'd change the two line legends to one, like "Num" instead of "Num lock", "Print" instead of "print sc", "Pause" instead of "Pause break" and "scroll" instead of "scroll lock". Then I would also change the legends for multiply and divide to the alternate ones.

* Please add 1.5u bottom row "super" / "meta" keycaps  (like GMK Eclipse)

* Consider removing numpad keys from base kit   (like GMK Eclipse)

* Consider changing pound symbol to #.   Pound symbol makes this keyset UK-compatible only

 - Consider adding one more 1u Alt and 1u Ctrl bottom-row keys for consistency of HHKB layout.
 - Consider adding 1.5u bottom-row Super keys for HHKB layout consistency (using 1.5u keys programmed as the OS key)
 - Add Numpad zero (0) 1u bottom-row key for 1800/CP/split-zero layouts.
 - Consider adding 00 key for numpads
 - Consider removing one 2.25u Shift (there are three in the kit; I think only 2 are needed for Clueboard/660 layouts)
 - Spacebar kit:
   - add 2x 1uC keys,
   - add 1.25u blank key,
   - include both 6u offset and centered spacebars
   - there is no need to have 2x 1.75, 2x 2.25u, 2x 2.75u spacekeys. I believe only one of each would suffice.

 A few more uncommon suggestions
 - Consider a uniformly-colored F-row (dark modifier color)
 - Consider using R5 as the bottom-row profile -- molds are available for different modifier sizes now, thanks to Carbon R2!

I hope you can consider all of these!

Keys missing / revisions:
 - Spacebars look differently colored. There should be matching, alpha-colored spacebars.
 - Add modifier-colored `(tilde) 1u and \ (backslash) 1.5 keys
 - Add Alternative homing keys: F, J, and 5 barred -- assuming the F J and 5 in the main portion of the kit are all scooped.
 - Revise "Ctrl" on the 1.5u bottom-row keys to "Control"
 - Please revise the "Fn" 1u bottom-row keys used for Tsangan (7u spacebar) layout to Super so that it is consistent with the standard bottom-row keys.

Icon mod is about preference; kit design is about compatibility. You can't just ask for icon mods and assume that will be treated the same as asking for specific kit configurations. Unless you want a separate icon mods set that definitely will not hit MOQ.

Can't say that considering that GMK TA 90 had icon + text mods, and a separate icon mods kit and hit MoQ.

Applies also to GMK Space Cadet and GMK Burgundy R2, which did the same thing.

I would like to see a pic with a lighter background's colors to judge better the impact of the shades chosen. Thanks
