[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.

Nice. Always been a fan of Molokai (https://emacsthemes.com/themes/molokai-theme.html) myself. Even though I'm still disappointed and somewhat cautious of sets like this after Solarized Dark I might considering picking this up...

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.

I wonder how some inverted dark gray on magenta accents would work with this...

I'd like a 40's kit pls.

Question though.. is it possible to get a 1u r4 green Apply? I guess it doesn't really matter, but I'd prefer r4 "enter" for planck / preonic.

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.

I like it but why is there a R3 and R4 pipe backslash key? I'm not aware of any layout that has both of these, or a layout that uses R3 pipe backslash.

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.
