This looks really similar to GMK Slate IMO which ran eventually in pbt but was originally planned to be GMK

Glad you are doing a stock color set though, I'm all for more of those

Very interesting.

I'm already in for GMK DMG so might as well get in for this. I wonder what's happening with GMK SNES...

Does this mean that this set will run before GMK Modern Dolch Light?

Was the original playstation that dark of a grey? I thought I remembered it being lighter.

Edit: After googleing irl pictures of gmk 2b, it seems to be pretty close (depending on lighting).

December 2019 is too soon for me. Can't afford it with the holidays coming around. Looks great though. I love the simplicity and subtle theme. Well done. Maybe I can get extras.
I just realized how to put stuff here.

Current colors are fine, with so many colors, using stock probably makes good sense.

Novelties inspired by face buttons and rudimentary ortho
support (1U data, call, plot, meta like GMK Voyager, GMK Umbra, and Mitocorn have) would be appreciated though.

Somehow I think Dixiemech will make room for it if the IC is solidly popular.

This is to DMG what Dracula was to Oblivion, another set working within a theme shown to be successful by other sets, but noticeably different (and probably something people clearly want to spend money on). Definately more palletable in terms of colors and theme than that other set.

I agree with you, if a set has interest then it should be run. Dixie obviously agrees with you when GMK Handarbeit was in it's IC phase.



I just think that this set is mediocre, the grey is ugly and accented mods don't fit, but to each their own.

I... in light of what you're referencing, carry on :)), everybody thinks they can be Puddsy these days.

ASCII and Lunar are already covering the 2B bases and Nord and Apollo aren't far off in two tone grey, so this set really needs novelties to sell the theme.

Would like to see a mock up since my imagination is lacking right now.

If there is an opportunity to further customize, I think a custom gray as spacebar, esc, and arrow accent that is slightly darker like the Power, Open, and Reset buttons on the PS1. I know it raises MOQ but if there is enough support I personally think it would make the set more complete.

First of all, great idea and take on this set! I love the theme on this, and am very much a fan. I guess you may have considered, but I hope to give some suggestions!

1) Have you considered a custom gray- slightly lighter I think, to match the actual classic dualshock?

2) As for the mods, this is an idea from a friend, @magicpretzel - how about making the mods the dark gray color (like on the d-pad, analog sticks) and maintain the colored legends, just like on the original dualshock.

3) Text mods/Icon + text to further highlight the accent colors? (Very subjective, I know..)

4) Like others have mentioned, I think novelties would really make this set shine.

Excited to see the progress on this!

hi, so I made this mockup.

(please excuse my limited photo manipulation skill)

I (intentionally) left the colored Esc key as blank to make others standout.

maybe the icons should be re-arranged.

Dude, IC is for people that are interested in the set. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Coming in here and just bashing an idea that you don't like isn't exactly constructive criticism, you're just muddying waters for Dixie to read through feedback. Just understand that by not saying anything and not buying you're still showing your opinion without looking like you're all butthurt about a keyset that isn't your cup of tea. There's like a gazillion GMK sets coming out all the time, just get the ones you like and don't be a ***** about the ones you don't.

To be fair an interest check is to gauge interest, not necessarily only for people who are already interested in it. I do agree that constructive feedback is the way to go, though.
If someone isn't interested initially, at least I'd be curious to know why - and if recurring then obviously that might be something to look into or carry with yourself to any further projects etc.

For Firefly, I implemented changes which turned people who weren't initially interested, into being interested.

Please kill this. There’s no way this set should take up a spot in any vendors lineup with it as competitive as it’s gotten this year.
