Starting to see some pictures as people receive their sets. The color of the mods especially seems considerably off. Here's to hoping it looks better in person!

Never assume people know how to photograph with correct color temperatures. Especially smartphone pictures.

There was also this document about the color matching:

I mean that is what people said about Nautilus Nightmare  and we saw how that turned out.

Unless GMK has stuffed up while producing, expect this https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Exs02k8paOWvBkSeypO4IkMBxmHQ2rsC

My face when I miss a group buy I want.

Do you plan to do a rerun?

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!

I've received mine, and I can confirm also that koenoe's picture above is an accurate representation. The color in person is very pleasing and better than the other pictures I had seen. Not exactly the renders, but very reasonably close. And an attractive result! Thank you for the colorway and groupbuy!

Yeah Definitely Dixie usually releases extras after all gb orders have shipped & a little time has passed so extra for botanical should be available in mid January  ^-^

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?

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.
