[IC] GMK Monokai Material
« on: Mon, 16 March 2020, 12:29:12 »
Hello,

I have a new IDE themed keyset for you. Monokai is very popular, but I personally never really liked the standard warm version, it's too dolchy for me. I prefer colder grays, so after a lot of experimenting and rendering I opted for the Material version of the theme. Additionally, I am making this one with a single base color unlike Oblivion/Penumbra/Dracula/Solarized Dark. Lastly, seeing the Git Base Kit in Oblivion V2 being most successful, I chose to have those as the default legends for this run. I really don't want to offer multiple Base Kits in the first appearance of this set, but I will very strongly consider running a Regular Base Kit by itself once this has shipped after a successful group buy, so a Round 1.5 I guess.

The colors will be matched to RAL tones. I will pursue having the base color matched and finalized before the launch of the group buy as this color is vital for the set to come out great. The RAL's I am currently eyeing for this are Stahlblau and Tiefseeblau. The other colors should be much easier to match so I will do those between GB closing and production start as is the norm with most GMK keysets.

Kit wise, I want to focus on the basics. There's a Base Kit that covers everything essential and the 40bit kit for Ortholinear/40%/Split keyboard users. The 40bit kit is still Work in Progress because I need to go through all the layouts again and make sure the color/legend distribution works well on everything. The color distribution will be different especially for the Ortholinear layouts compared to how I did it on Oblivion V2, and the current kit forces arrows be used on the bottom row for those. I am not sure if I want to add Colevrak/International kits.

Big fan of Monokai, been wondering when someone would do this. I personally don't think I need it as a keyset, but it's good to see someone working on it.

Very understandable, which is why I am working with RAL colors (GMK's plastic supplier has more accuracy with those, Solarized Dark was 'matched' against HEX values if memory serves right), and want to get the base color done sampling much earlier.

40s kit is hardly a 40s kit. It's missing some vital keys. I'd pair it with with the Dracula 40's kit but then it's hardly a Monokai theme.
And that's the issue. It's hardly a Monokai theme at all.

Could you point out the keys that are missing? This would help me greatly in improving that kit.

The only difference I can see is the lack of Minivan keys (R2 1.75u and R4 1.75u), the rest is provided when buying both kits.

Man...I do like a lot of your stuff, but I cannot in good faith support someone who continues to drop Minivan support, even now that Evan doesn't own the company anymore.  I may only be 1 person, but you continually lose out on an additional buyer of your sets each time. 

Hope you change your perspective one day.

Actually the R4 1.75u isn't MV exclusive, as it is necessary to provide proper stragger on most 40% boards. Looks like that is part of the base kit already. Good luck with the IC and eventual GB.

This. Don't abbreviate what can be spelled out. There is no abbreviation anywhere else in the set so this would bug the hell out of me (okay technically not true, Git legends like Init and Diff are abbreviations, but those are pre-determined by Linus, I had no say in those).

Can we stop putting unnecessary stuff like mod-colored quotes and R3 Esc into 40s kits?

The proposed 40s kit in the OP is much better than this.

That argument falls apart if you consider that Print Screen and Scroll Lock can be spelled out in full too, but Print and Lock are chosen instead for aesthetic reasons. It should be the same with this. I am aware that there is a difference between abbreviating a word and omitting one, but the end result is effectively the same, so it doesn't really matter imo.

Edit: Also, the fact that some legends that are fixed in place are abbreviated is perhaps a sign that the rest of the set should be made this way too (where applicable) to keep the design cohesive and the overall look consistent.

I agree with this. Please consider including Minivan support.

The minivan is a popular 40% board, but the childish exclusion has been going on for quite a few sets already. Sad and dumb imo
For the 1.75u R4 key, MiniVan users might be OK with the 1.75u Checkout key that's in the base kit.

In that case, it's only a 1.75u R2 key that's needed to complete the 40s kit for MiniVan users.

The 1.25 Commit key is a welcome addition but this is a more complete 40s kit.

The only difference I can see is the lack of Minivan keys (R2 1.75u and R4 1.75u), the rest is provided when buying both kits.

Man...I do like a lot of your stuff, but I cannot in good faith support someone who continues to drop Minivan support, even now that Evan doesn't own the company anymore.  I may only be 1 person, but you continually lose out on an additional buyer of your sets each time. 

Hope you change your perspective one day.

Can we stop putting unnecessary stuff like mod-colored quotes and R3 Esc into 40s kits?

The proposed 40s kit in the OP is much better than this.

why is r3 escape unnecessary? i use r2 tab & r3 escape
i like mod-colored quote, but it is purely aesthetic

Can we get a Colevrak+ kit this time instead of Colevrak? It is one of the few reasons I didn't pick up the oblivion v2.

This looks even better than oblivion imo.

To my knowledge, GMK does now offer 3u Convex bars, so I will consider adding it. What other layouts would require a 3u Spacebar (that can be fully covered by this set otherwise)?

R3/R4 Page Up/Page Down keys please! Otherwise, I may be in for a base and 40s set.

I will consider this.

Colevrak plz

Thanks for voicing interest, I will strongly consider International/Colevrak as I might have a strategy of how they can be combined with a future R1.5 for the Regular Base Kit.

That looks great!!

This round will not, if it does well enough and there is sufficient interest for the Regular Base Kit Round 1.5, I can add it there and you'd be able to buy it for your Git Base Kit.

Great colorway, very excited for this. I don’t want to detract from this interest check too much, but for a potential R1.5 Regular Base Kit would that be text only mods similar to the oblivion regular kit?

Correct, it would be the Regular Base Kit from Oblivion V2 but in this colorway.

finally turn to Monokai, it's great. I am big fan of this theme.
I need to say:
1. R4 line 'Rebase' orange is too similar to 'Oblivion',  and the color in Monokai is more yellow '#e6db74'
2. please put a 2u 'shift' in R4, it will feed left 60 players.
3. new grey is nice in rendering.

1. I can see how it looks similar, but it's more orange for this set

Oblivion - Monokai Material


The color also exists in Monokai Material



and I picked it over the pale yellow one because

#1 It doesn't look as good IMO, too pale


#2 It makes the whole set come too close to Dracula


2. Will consider adding alongside R3 R4 Page Up/Page Down

3. Thanks, I agree!

I'd really like to see be orange legends be a lighter, more yellow heavy color like in some Monokai variants.

But that's just me. I know you like to keep original themes consistently and I can respect that.




Pssst....also minivan base case colors would look incredible topped with Monokai. Please consider Minivan support. :)

I like this more than Oblivion (which has been set aside to go on the U80-A when it arrives) and I'll be looking to get the version with the regular legends whenever the GB for it runs.

What's your idea for Colevrak+? You mentioned you had a strategy.
Aand, this round 1.5 you keep mentioning, is it for a complete base kit or just a mod kit (with other extra kits maybe)?

Round 1.5 would be a full Regular Base Kit ala Oblivion V2 with a 40bit kit to go along with (also having regular legends instead of Git ones).

The strategy for International/Colevrak I have in mind: Offer both in this group buy with the Git Base Kit, then buy out the remaining units (I assume both will need help to reach MOQ 100), and sell those extras alongside R1.5 as limited kits (since not another batch is produced, just the extras from this Git Round). This requires commitment from the Vendor(s) though so it is just an idea for now.

Nice changes. Base kit compatibility is looking good now.

Would you consider changing the R4 \| ISO key to R4 <>? I've heard some ISO users express aversion to the double \| setup because of the duplicate legends. R4 <> solves that problem, but it isn't inconsistent like the partial ISO-UK R3 #~, R4 \| variant. I think R3 \|, R4 <> (what some call US ISO, terminal style) is the way to go for baseline 4-key ISO support in sets.
