[IC] GMK Grand Prix - GB in October 2020!
« on: Wed, 18 December 2019, 16:01:35 »
Hello Geekhack!




This keyset was inspired by Tech3 early 2000s colorway. A 250cc class motorcycle racing team. Olivier Jacques, and Shinya Nakano rode for them that year and they had a fantastic season, culminating with Olivier being crowned the World Champion in 2000. As a motogp fan, I have long wanted to make a set based on this theme.

The colors are based off the team livery that season, primarily cold grey and acid green with orange accents. Acid green is for Olivier Jacques and orange is for Shinya Nakano. I hope other fans of motor sports will enjoy this keyset as much as I have creating it.

I was just thinking the same thing, the mods are softer on the eyes. I really like the look of this one, Neon Yellow is my favorite color. I went all in on GMK Night Runner, now I have to get this one. lol

The kit was based on RAL colors except the Orange accent which is Pantone atm. Will try to find the best RAL to fit the colour.

I think that would be a great addition, for reference, you can check Mito's last sets which were expanded for the most compatibility that I've seen in a base kit (he separated the numpad but not necessarily relevant in this case)

I personally like the idea of having more compatibility without having to commit to kits that one might not actually have a need or plan for; only for those obscure kits to become coveted in the used market down the road. I've recently sold my GMK 3Run because compatibility with that set was near impossible and would love to replace it with this.


Any chance of including a Formula 1 car in the novelties? I know the set was inspired by MotoGP but the colorway reminds me of Brawn GP including the Orange which almost matches the highlights of Barrichello's helmet and the rollbar of Button's car perfectly!

Hello people,

Added RAL color references
Added placeholder for the 40 kit as people are asking for it on several networks. Preparing it.
Also Added render on the Bauer with Orange accents.
While doing the render for accent, the yellow numpad looked really weird with the orange enter on a full size. That's why now the numpad enter key is a part of the addon kit.

The Yellow is a lot more green than I was expecting, but I like it still. Always could go Night Runner Safety Yellow as GMK can match it  :p

Looking forward to seeing this run at some point, will most likely pick it up.

Hi friend! Would you consider adding R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn to your base kit? If you're looking for a few keys to shave off, I'd say the duplicate 1u Ctrl and Alt would be prime candidates for that :)

I like the theme and as a racing fan I would like some great novelties. More something like racing commands for keyboard. that would be great.

Hey, what's the mod-colored R1 \| key in the base kit for? Split backspace is already covered by the alpha-colored one. The most common split backspace setups are \|, `~ and \|, Delete. Mod-colored \| would be useful for a `~, \| setup, but I don't think that's very common at all (at least not enough to warrant including that key).

Would you consider changing one of the ISO alpha keys to avoid having a duplicate \| legend? I've been hearing complaints about these recently. You can either change the R4 key to <>, or the R3 key to #~, based on what you prefer. R4 <> is better objectively speaking (details here), but many people (mostly ISO-UK users) seem to prefer R3 #~.

This is mostly aesthetic choice to fit the theme with Nakano's colorscheme.

As a non ISO user i was not really triggered by this as the current base kit has a ISO US compat. Having a partial compat with changing one of those keys seems odd. I'd prefer to have an international kit complete instead of this trade-off situation.

Also because i had lot of questions i'm considering adding a second B in a child kit for Alice users.

Yeah, I get that, but you already have a mod-colored R1 `~ for the top right corner key, right? So what's the mod-colored R1 \| for?

With R4 <> it's still full ISO US compat (ďterminal styleĒ), just without a duplicate legend, which is why I'm suggesting it as the better option.

At first it was mainly for split backspace use but it's pretty uncommon to have also the pipe mod colored. Fixed in the base kit.
