Kinda mad that you included a cadet set, b/c I'll buy it and was trying to save money on keycaps...  but it is what it is.

Dixie usually runs a Rama with their sets. Does this mean there might be a Rama we don't know about yet.....?

Most of the time Geekhack is just hosting Interest Check and Group Buy discussions.  Vendors are chosen to handle purchases from various regions of the world.   Looks like Dixie will be the US vendor for GMK Nuclear Data, as Macmutant mentioned a couple posts up.

All the vendors will be announced closer to GB launch in this IC's OP, and/or in the GB OP which typically opens when the GB starts.

You already got a great response. I'd add two things:
1. You'll be able to order for a few weeks, and
2. There's no limit, so there's no rush.

So if you have further questions, come ask em here or reddit or one of the discords etc. We all started somewhere.

You know how there are some keycap sets that exist where, as soon as you see them, you know you HAVE to have them?

This is one of those sets for me (GMK Taro was another one, which is why I jumped all in on Taro R2)

I've always been a sucker for anything involving nuclear power plants and the like, and the sublegends on the Cadet Kit are an absolute must-buy for me!

That being said...will there be deskmats for this set? :D

same for me man, but between this and hammerhead, which i fell in love with the second i saw it, it's a hard decision. i can't justify buying both  :(
on the other hand, this is made for SA profile, but the GMK novelties are sweet af.

Bummer on the cut mushroom cloud, but it makes sense given GMKs kitting constraints. Thanks for the update!

I'm a let the Carbon warning signs all sit on my F row type of guy so I woulda paid for them anyways, but the designers have been around the block with kitting so I'll trust them.

Me and 49 other nuc data fans would buy the $h1t out of a metal Rama Activate enter though. just sayin.

Why oh why does the font have to be wrong and not centered on the keys? Itís really not the same. Iím just sad because Iíve wanted this set for so long and now itís being remade, but wrong. Sorry to be negative.

Because it is GMK and not SA. It's standard GMK font and legend placement.
Usually wrong

I don't think GMK even does center legend placement unless pad print on blanks lol but that's still slightly off center iirc.

This is exactly how GMK Nuclear Data was to be expected. If you want the same, get SA or see if you can get a set made in reverse dyesubs

yea, this is Nuke Data but in the GMK styling. not a 1:1 clone of the SA set in Cherry profile.

I really like the Return legended Enter key...
glwic!!!!
The novelties are a must buy too. My only suggestion/question is regarding the "Activate" novelty, I'd be interested to see what that's like with the Enter icon. imo, novelty keys work better when they are the same legend style (icon vs text vs text+icon) as the rest of the set.

Also..... I feel like Launch is 123.75% more appropriate. No one says activate the nuke. Theyíd say detonate or launch the nuke. Maybe drop the nuke. Activate the nuke!...... said no one

The Nuclear Data Terminals "was typically used for gamma ray spectroscopy". This isn't about launching nukes.

I wish that Cadet Kit was a full alpha kit so I could just buy it & combine with GMK N9 Ortho Kit instead of having to pay over $200 to outfit a 40%

Would be a fine compromise to just use novelty keycaps in place of the bottom right 3 alpha keys, but there's only 1 R4 novelty :/

Can someone detail how extreme the difference is between Row 4 and Row 5?

I just noticed it's Row 5 :/ Definitely not a deal breaker, but I'm not really a fan of sculpts

Row 5 is superior.

The difference isn't "extreme" though.

I've noticed that R5 makes it a lot easier to hit ctrl with your pinky. Y'know, for those drops shots in games..

I like it. I was skeptical when it was (re)introduced in carbon, but it feels nice.
