Open this thread in an incognito tab to see the pictures

Can confirm that private browsing mode revealed the jaw-dropping set in its full glory.
It's definitely deliberate, because this set is so sexy and NSFW.
Hazzy you're so considerate.

Although 'Botanical' is an elegant name, it's a bit of a mouthful, so I'm personally calling this set GMK Succ.
You've also inspired me to visualise what this set would look like with novelties that looked like marij... I mean hemp.

Glad you followed through with initial feedback in the IC of removing the Japanese legends. Although I wouldn't mind future bonsai themed mods/novelties if there's a R2.

I had the same issue when I posted my GB thread Hazzy, I switched to imgur linked images and that resolved the issue, and makes things much easier to manage as well. I am guessing the massive amount of images in one thread at once has issueson the hosting server

The old IC renders had top aligned so to clear up confusion I have mentioned it here although the renders here are the final versions that will be produced! Thank you for commenting I hope my reply was sufficient!

Forget about the note, Ive removed it. The mods in old renders were top aligned but we have fixed that in these new renders u see here. Hope this answers your question!

Is there any chance of a second B being added to base if it hits a stretch goal? This is one of my favourite sets and was going to buy the 40s kit just for the B but then it got cut.

He does mean the off white color of the key. The legend colour is not a concern.
Damn, I was hoping the 'white' of the alphas would have more a green hue, then the blueish hue of Shoko alphas. I'm going to reserve judgment of this decision after this set arrives in hand to see by eye...
For now I'll trust the designer's judgment on this, but I do have my reservations.

Nvm, dixie just posted this about it.

**************************************************************
The shipment of keysets just arrived! We most likely won’t get to inventory until Monday.

We will begin shipping all orders that do not contain deskpads next week.

We expected to receive our deskpad shipment prior to the keycaps, but that is no longer the case. The deskpads for Botanical are slated to arrive the last week of the year as shipping by boat had some delays.
Orders containing deskpads will most likely begin shipping the first week of January.

Just got my set today. It looks a bit different compared to the renders, but it's not horribly off. Maybe it's that the grey on the modifiers isn't as dark/sharp as I expected? Not sure if I'm describing the look properly.

It's not horrible like some photos might show, just not what I think a lot of buyers were expecting. For those curious, here's what it looks like on my Chimera65. Picture taken with my phone with the overhead light in my room on:

As another person with GMK Botanical in hand, this photo best represents what the keycaps look like IRL! I agree that the dark green is a bit off from the renders, it's more green than gray, but it's still very lovely and definitely looks like Botanical. Also the alphas are in fact the same color as GMK Shoko's; surprisingly the text color makes the alphas lean more green than blue, so it still works.

However, I didn't realize that this kit is missing a fourth 1.75 key that is needed for split space layout for the JD45/Phoenix 45 pcb. I hope R2 of this set (if it gets run) has better 40s support!

Anyone get shipping info for keys with deskmats? I know he said it should be soon but I was wondering if anyone got a tracking number or has gotten it.

Today's update from Omni discord "The last update is that the deskpad shipment is finally arriving next week for us to begin inventorying so we can finish out Botanical orders as soon as we can."

The color turned out great I think, albeit not as gray as the render. However, the base kit seems to have suffered similar fate as Metaverse R2 and Burgundy R3 where Row2's Alpha and Row2's numeric keycaps are matte and missing the texture and coating, especially the texture.

*Note that 7 & 8 are flat while 9 is fine

Anyone else has the similar issue?

Yes, I have the same issue with 7 & 8 from numpad, I bet most if not all of them have this problem, but people don't notice it since most will not use the numpad, having smaller form factor keyboards. To be honest I'm quite disappointed in the quality of GMK lately. The last 3 sets delivered (Metaverse, Burgundy, Botanical) - all have these issues, some have it more noticeable, some less - but all 3 have them. Packaging is also much worse/cheaper than it used to be before. It's very sad to see.

Does my left control and super keys look a bit off to anyone else? The font not quite vertically aligned and a bit thin?

Good to see GMK improving ;D

Other than that, I'm happy with how the colours turned out.

Wow. Is there anything you can do about the broken cap? Seems a bit wrong to pay so much for a set, then wait close to a year to have a keycap arrive broken.

Hard to say for sure, but the left control does look like the it's quite off

This is the reason I will not be buying more GMK sets in near future. Last 3 I bought had issues and at this price point it just cannot be justifiable. Will wait until several group buys (hopefully running currently) turn out with no issues, then maybe will reconsider. But as of now - GMK quality doesn't match the price.
