Hello GeekHack!

Are you looking for some Contrast or simplicity?
Let me introduce:GMK Bleached

This is my first post on Geekhack and also my first keyset, I hope you guys would like it.

The colours used are GMK's stock colours (WS2 and CR), which provides bright white and black.

What gives the name?
Bleach will also destory colour and "bleach" it to white, which matches perfectly with the colour of this set.
Bleach is also used to kill the viruses to prevent us from getting the disease, espically when there is a coronavirus(WARS) outbreak in Wuhan, China right now.
Please regularly clean your house with diluted bleach so kill any bacteria and virus in your living area.
I wish the people who caught WARS will be cured and recover soon.

Kits
Kits are almost finalized, little changes could still happen(addition or removal of few keys)
Please let me know in this post or discord if you have changes that you would want to see

NaClO (Base)

This base kit includes compactability for most of the layouts people use. ([29/1] now 65% too!)
An extra F13 is added to the base for the Jane v2 CE, E8.5 and others.

Yes I know, ISO. Kits are subject to change and if those 4 keys will not impact the price for the kit, they are staying in there.
If it would, I will figure something out, and the F13 is going with it

I lied, UKISO is now a child kit.

I can't make up a name (extension kit)

UK ISO, with some extra keys for hhkb

H2O2 (Numpad)

Here's the numpad for the fullsize peeps and who just wants to bleach their numpad to pure white.

1:49 (40s/Ortho)


Bleach Pens(Spacebars+B)

For the people who do their laundry in a different way.

Inks (accents)

How about inverted accent named like 'ink'?
Yes.

Icon only Mods

After reading through the vote for Icon/Text mods (over half of the people who wanted Icon or text only mods in the original IC voted).
Icon only have more love so Icon only mods will be ran as a child kit, sorry text only lovers

Isn't this just Minimal/Stormtrooper/Prestine/Paper... etc?



Being a Black on White set, Bleached do share a lot of similarities to the sets above.
But Bleached offers a brighter, sharper white compare to the warmer/duller white from the others.

Approval by Janglad (Thank you :) )



Renders (By Kingk22)
renders have text only mods, The actual base kit will have text+icon mods
BOCC by Senryo




TGR Jane V2 by TGR




Special Thanks to:
Kingk22 for the Beautiful renders <3
Janglad for the support!
James from AKB and Agilr for the help on the 40s kit!

This is amazing. Not enough white sets out there. Also
WS2 generally matches PCB white much better than WS1 so cant wait for this.

Interested! I'd be interested in some kit with split spacebar support, as others might be as well with all the Alice layout boards recently.

Yes and a proper 2nd b while we’re at it. Maybe just add those 3 extra keys to the base kit and move iso to numpad? I bet we have more Alice users than we do iso.

This looks awesome!

I'd like it if more ISO compatability sets would include the UK @ key, maybe I'm unfairly merging two sets for my own benefit but it's pretty much the only key missing fron the standard ISO set so very rarely gets added in alone.

This was just him being polite. There is no reason not to be friendly and polite. If he was told no he still could have run it since it stock colors.

Now we'll need to distinguish BoW1 and BoW2 (not that it'd be a bad thing!).

I could make a mix and match with BoW1 alphas and BoW2 mods, for example.

(also, ISO alphas, blah blah blah, all y'all know what I'll be yapping about)

rip minimal r2

in all seriousness though, icon + text mods is a must for me. with stock colors and a low, OG minimal-like price, I could see this becoming very popular. gl! :wink:

Depends on MOQ and kit design. Novelkeys gets a base kit every month often custom colors at 115 or 120$. GMK Dark cut the numpad out and the base is still 120 bc of low MOQ.

This photo needs to be color balanced. It's misleading. Because my GMK Minimal WS1 does not look yellow like that at all. If anything, it looks like clean, plain white paper. Not a yellow, tan, sun-washed white.

True photo is to demonstrate how ws2 matches pcb whites since it has more blue in it.

There's better photos out there, but here's both next to each other, with other colors that are probably in sets that you have, in a photo that doesn't look as if it's been retouched much

Love it, especially the text only mods surprisingly! I've never been big on text only modifiers, but certain sets can get away with it & this is one IMO. I think you should go all the way & have text on the arrow keys TBH!

Nice and clean, I've wanted this exact combo myself before so thank you for actually putting an IC together!!

Love the inclusion of F13 in the base kit and definitely +1 for extra B key in the spacebars kit.

You might be able to do some cool molecule inspired novelties as has already been mentioned, but I would say err on the side of keeping it nice and simple (and hopefully affordable!) with no novelties. I'd be interested to know a rough price for full base kit (NaClO + H2O2 in one kit) vs the kits as they're laid out currently, since more and more I'm coming to believe the relatively small savings from splitting the numpad off just aren't worth the increased value of having numpad in the base.

I'd be fine with either text mods or icon + text mods. If anything, text mods are better coz they piss off Pwner :p

Some suggestions:
  • Move R1 End, R1 PgDn to the H2O2 kit. It doesn't make sense to have them in base if you don't have a numpad. Those keys are only useful on 1800, CP and 96-key layouts when coupled with a numpad.
  • In their place, add R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn to the base kit to support popular 65%/75% right column options.
  • Use “System” and “Sys” instead of “Win” for the OS key legends.
  • Use “Caps” instead of “Caps↲Lock” as the stepped caps legend for a uniform, one-line look across the entire set.
  • We've had this discussion many times before, but I suggest using R3 \| instead of R3 #~ as the extra R3 ISO key.
