Love the set, but I think it might be improved by addition of another color - gold to match the gold foil on the lunar lander, potentially as the accent color

I like the set a lot, and I like the desk mat, but I have a problem with them being put together. The mat depicts a fictional space disaster, maybe inspired by the movie Gravity. In contrast, notwithstanding the Apollo 1 fire, that program was a resounding success to be celebrated. I'd really recommend a different illustration on the mat. Maybe a render of the Earth as seen from the moon, with a lunar lander on the surface in the foreground.

Yeah, this has been the main source of feedback. I think I've decided to have a new deskmat design which will be in the same design style as this one. Instead, it will be of the moons surface, similar to the signature of the set, but more refined. The current deskmat will be run separately to this, so you will be able to get one or the other, or even both if you so choose!
Thanks for the feedback :)

This set is looking better everyday.  Glad you're changing up the deskmat.  I think what you're proposing to have it match closer to the signature is a cool idea.

Yeah. That will be the plan. There was enough interest for a deskmat like that in the feedback form, so itís only right to go ahead with it.

On the enter key I think it would look more like a rocket without the flame, as it is now to me it looks more like a fountain pen.

In essence, yes. The current one shown had some continuity errors regarding Apollo. I saw this forthcoming, as the different objects donít represent the Apollo missions as much as Iíd like them to. The current one will be running separately (due to the amount of interest shown towards it) at the same time or possibly even earlier (Iíll keep the IC posted on that). A new deskmat is in the works as Iíve mentioned and that will be released along with the set.
Hope that answers your question.

The 40s/Ortho kit is darn near perfect -- 1.25 R3 enter and two 2.25 spacebars are excellent inclusions. Are the 1.75 space keys convex? they don't look like it in the render. If not, could they be made convex? yes? please?

Also, some gmk sets are also starting to include 1.25u convex spacebars (e.g. camping in japan, coral) -- putting one in the 40s kit would be insanely awesome, though making the one in the spacebars kit convex would be good too.

Nice work on the whole set!

I love the idea of this set. A couple suggestion, some of which has already been noted but I figured I’d reiterate. The mat is nice, but I’d suggest looking at the activities of the Apollo astronauts when they were on the surface- I think it was Charlie Duke who attempted to do some activities that mimicked the Olympic Games that were occurring at the time, and nearly fell over (which could have been serious injury or death). There’s someone who hit a golf ball up there as well (I’m drawing a blank on the name...).

I second the idea of a Saturn V rocket for the enter key that does not have a engine trail.

I’d also like to recommend a set of novelty modifier keys of a brownish/copperish/grayish look that show the mineral composition of the marť, which is present in some high resolution photos. I do some Astrophotography as a hobby, I’ll try to attach a picture. Photo credit: me, Instagram.com/mattkeysphoto

Anywho, great set, I look forward to it!

Cheers

Now that you say that, I think copper colored enter and escape highlight keys might be better than the white (or in addition to them). The lander had so much exposed copper on it, and it could have a double meaning.

Yeah I think it would look awesome with some gold-ish accents to pay homage to the moon rover. I was possibly thinking of looking into metal gold colored spacebar and escape keys etc. that could be purchased as a kit of their own.
Love to hear feedback though :)

That would be a really cool idea for a Rama/Salvun cap since then it would actually be metal then.

Regarding the deskmat: I agree, the lunar surface would have to be a must on the mat, I like the idea of activity on it, Iíll see what I can do.
And regarding the modifier keys: I agree with you on this, having some brown/copper accents or modifiers would be awesome for a set like this. I think it would make it Ďpopí. Iíve also got lots of feedback to add gold into the set to represent the Apollo lander, so if there is enough interest I may go with that one.
Thanks for your support, and great photos! You are very talented.

For the deskmat, something along these lines

A horizon shot of the moon, with the lander. If done in a similar style to the current mat it would be pretty cool I think.

Do you think that the negative space of the dark sky is good? Or should there be something there to fill it: E.G: The Command Service Module.

I think icon mods suit this set the best, and therefore should be in the base kit. If adding a kit for text mods makes people happy then by all means add one, but please keep the base kit as is in that regard.

Also have you considered doing R5 bottom row? The molds exist now after Carbon R2 and are criminally underutilized in my opinion :)

I think icon mods suit this set the best, and therefore should be in the base kit. If adding a kit for text mods makes people happy then by all means add one, but please keep the base kit as is in that regard.

Also have you considered doing R5 bottom row? The molds exist now after Carbon R2 and are criminally underutilized in my opinion :)

Yeah. If I were to add text mods, I would definitely keep it in a separate kit. The base kit is staying as is for now :)
A R5 bottom row would be a cool idea, if there is enough voiced opinion I can definitely look into this!

I definitely prefer icon mods, Iíd keep the kit where it is now, looks really good. Any update on the new novelties?

Revised enter novelty renders are coming soon yes. As for alternate designs, there are lots of opinions on the google form, so Iíll spend time curating those.

Just came from your Reddit post. Wanted to chime in and say that Iíll definitely be picking up this set as my first GMK set.
Also please keep this current deskmat I really love it.

Love the theme and the colors are nicely done and very neutral!

I'll add another vote for a second 'B' key. In the base would be great, but the in spacebars or even in the 40's kit would also be fine.

For my ne iso avail comment, I'd love to have a R3 1.25u Control key (similar to what GMK Darling has in its 40's kit). It's perfect for an HHKB-style 40 percent layout, with Tab on the top left mod and then Control in that left R3 mod. I realize it's pretty unorthodox but hey, it's still a key I'd love to see :P

Hey,

The 🅱️ key will certainly be coming to either the base or spacebar kit to support Alice functionality seeing how many acrylic Aliceís there we out there now.
As for the R3 1.25u control key, I can definitely see what I can do, if I did add it, it would probably be to the 40ís/ortho.

If you have any other questions let me know.

I'm really looking forward to the deskmat even as a stand-alone! As long as it's being sold, I'm not going to pass this one up.

This set is incredibly good looking, just finished watching Apollo 11 (2019), and it got me even more pumped to get join the GB. Added to watch list and joining for sure!

Thinking about it, some properly gold keycap to reflect the protecting gold film used in the missions on the landers would be exciting.
