[IC] GMK Boneyard
« on: Wed, 04 March 2020, 07:49:00 »
GMK Boneyard

GB starts in June 2020

In GMK Carbon R2 I offered an extension kit called the “Boneyard Alphas”. Those Alphas could only be used with the base kit and this combination was definitely too expensive for some people. So I decided to offer GMK Boneyard as a stand alone Set.
With this approach I hope to offer you an affordable set in these subtle colors. In order to honor people who joined GMK Carbon R2 with Boneyard this set does not offer R0 and R5 rows. But I guess most people will appreciate the decision for traditional row constellation.
Surely you can expect that – MAYBE (not promising) I will do the same for other Carbon R2 extensions like Umka or Beezarre.
Anyway this here is GMK Boneyard IC.

Vendors:

Base kit

The base kit offers only the necessary key for 60%, 65%, TKL, WKL, 100% and 1800er layouts. I do expect the base kit to get very competitive pricing.

40% kit

This kit is also designed to be affordable. Thus it includes only necessary keys for most 40% layouts and it contains all currently available spacebars for layouts with split spacebars. Additionally it includes extra B key for layouts like TGR Alice.

Novelties kit

Most of all my sets do offer some sort of novelties and Boneyard is not an exception. The theme is here obvious. Its about Pirates/Buccaneers which adds some adventurous touch to it.
Currently I am considering to add Domino keys from Rolling Bones kit. But this will definitely increase the pricing significantly. So its up to discussion.
Also the Kraken Buccaneer Skull is not final and i still might change and tweak few details.

Domino kit

Other things to consider is also to make a matching Deskmat with Kraken Buccaneers Skull.

Renders will follow.

Lovely. It's one of my favorite sets.

Do you think you could add the R5 keys for the Buccaneers novelty kit for those who already own Bone/Boneyard?

Minor comment: given the alphas and the mods use the same color, perhaps two copies of the R2 1.5U \| key are not needed (just as you already axed the mod-colored `~ key).

Awesome. 2 requests.

1. See how there's an R1 key that's the two bones, no skull? Could there be a backspace novelty key like that? Always wanted a key there in rolling bones.

2. A skull enter key with inverted colors. Two reasons here. One, accent key! Two, its a bone (pun intended!) for us who bought the Umka kit.

Hi, I'm a big fan of carbon Bone.
How about building two novelties kits to keep up with the Original BONE kit?

1. Kraken and Skeleton
2. Cards and Dice(Dominoes)

One of the great appeals of bone kits is rolling bones, so I think it's a good idea to split them as well.

*As of now, it does not seem to make a big difference from GMK nines. I would also like an inverted carbon alpha kit. PLEASE :0
anyway, I LOVE R4 again.

GMK Nines was "inspired" by this set, but using stock colors.

Good catch <3 I'll remove this key in the next update.

2. A skull enter key with inverted colors. Two reasons here. One, accent key! Two, its a bone (pun intended!) for us who bought the Umka kit.



1. I might look into it but i do not promise i'll do it. I got quite demanding standards if it comes to novelties.

2. I am against accent keys right now. Umka and Boneyard are thematically two completely different sets and i would not like to see skull and bones on Umka. Umka will get its own Novelties but only if i get a really good idea (again here i got my own standards).

Hi, I'm a big fan of carbon Bone.

One of the great appeals of bone kits is rolling bones, so I think it's a good idea to split them as well.


Right now i don't want to introduce another kit and rolling bones as such is made only for GMK Bone and i will offer it only with GMK Bone. So the only thing i consider right now is to add Domino keys. Anyway things are not set in stone completely and i might reconsider some decisions.

*As of now, it does not seem to make a big difference from GMK nines. I would also like an inverted carbon alpha kit. PLEASE :0
Nines is based on Boneyard and uses stock colors. In person Boneyard has warmer shades. Thus you can't mix it with Nines.

We need R5 !!!

Right now i decided for R4 bottom row due to many requests in GMK Carbon R2. I might consider this in possible future runs.

Indeed and this is where it goes out of boundaries if you try to make R0 and R5 compatible. Guess i probably have to drop the support for GMK Carbon R2.

I like my r5 numpad enter as much as the next guy, but I’d rather have the novelty kit as is and not have the r5 numpad enter than lose the chance entirely.

I also can’t be the only person who’d pay a few bucks for other people’s r5 novelties so I could have 4 or 6 for the bottom row.

I honestly don't care for R0. At all.

If no numpad enter can be added then the kit as is is fine. I'd rather have something than have nothing at all.

But if you'll take off all R5 then there's not much more for me to say than GLWGB.

The rolling bones would be a nice addition, imo that is what makes this really unique. Also, would you consider an additional R0-5 kit, kind of like the upcoming kit for GMK WoB. Just an option for people who want those 2 rows.

Not in this GB. Umka deserves its own GB.

Pardon but i want to keep the costs as low as possible. So basic layout support only. The 1.5u Super key is very niche.

GMK Carbon R2 has it all and offers largest variety of keys. In this GB I want to keep the cost as low as possible and thus it supports only basic stuff.

I agree. It seems weird to me that the novelties kit now comes with keys that are incompatible with the base kit being offered. I would much rather the novelties kit come with more compatible keys than being backwards compatible with a past GB. If backwards compatibility is that important then this GB should be R0-R5.

Agree. Carbon is Carbon & Boneyard is Boneyard.
