Hello! We have a new keyset design to show everyone!
It is inspired by the dashboard colorway of my wife's car, which led to the dashboard icons theme.
I loved the blue/ very slight greenish grays in different shades mixed with the bright red.


Please fill out the IC form for us to get some feedback and answer some kitting questions!

I like the colors, but when the alphas and mods don't share anything at all it just looks like a hodgepodge to me.   Why no red legends?  It has an evil dolch/dracula mono with err kit look to it, but I think it could still be something in it's own right.

Dude, I don't wanna see warning lights on my keyboard. I see it too many on my car already.

Cool accents, though I don't much care for the colours/format of the set or the kitting.

I fear that this will suffer from the same problem 8008 had where the mods just didn't suit the alphas. Something something opinions.

I don’t see them as a “shameless copy” I see similarities but I honestly would prefer this over evil dolche. Guess this kit isn’t for you.

Hmmm last time I checked, my car had a check engine light and my oil pressure was kinda low. Did I also mention it overheats and needs a new battery since I haven’t been driving it? But it looks so RICER with my airbag delete and new rims I got without a tpms sensor.

you're one to talk about copying lmao.

imo, the colours and contrast are more than different enough that it doesnt come close to a clone. ignore this guy dixie, glwic.

Imho, the contrast of the alphas is poor. I feel like this set's alphas are dangerously close to being washed out. I think low contrast can be just fine (gmk dark for example). But when you have high and low contrast mixed together, it's like you're sending two different messages on what you want your set to look like. Just trying to be constructive. Good luck with IC.  :thumb:

I hate to be that person but ... what car does your wife drive? I feel like some of us would like to get a frame of reference for the particular car's dashboard that this set is inspired from.

Also, this is going to be purely semantic in regards to the name of this keyset and the novelties being proposed, but when I think of redlining my car, I don't exactly want to be seeing any of the warning, fuel gauge, AC, or Engine Start & Stop lights on my car's dashboard. Outside of the ABS, Traction, and Sport Novelties proposed, I think the rest of the novelties aren't thematically relevant to redlining a car.

Was hoping this would be based on the 2009 anime film Redline (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redline_(2009_film)). The colour scheme as it is even suits the main characters outfit, the deskmat is on point too. Would just need some suitable novelties.

I second the sentiment that the Alpha contrast or color choice in general could use some work. The Alphas seem like they belong to a different set altogether. But I think the set has potential, so I'm interested to see how it pans out  :thumb:

Agreed, this would definitely be a concern for me to.
Maybe a lighter grey/white would work better for it, but at the end of the day, it's your set/your vision, so please just do whatever you personally believe in the most (+I get that that'd lead to even more comparisons to Evil Dolch so...)

Hi Garrett, please consider adding R3 Pg Up, R4 Pg Dn keys to the base kit, for covering modern 65%/75% layouts. As I'm sure you are aware, most GMK base kits nowadays include these keys (more so than 1.5u Super), and it's a common occurrence to see users asking for them in ICs.

I also think the basic 4-key ISO support would work better with R3 \| and R4 <> for reasons outlined here and backed up by community statistics shown here.

Wow I love this one!

I can see how people would say this is similar to GMK Evil Dolch. It does follow the same dark/red theme.
However Redline feels more modern to me and I am a fan of Redline over Evil Dolch. The subtle blue tone and lesser contrasted alpha keys make this set feel more elegant and smoother.

I hope nothing major changes with the colors when this enters gb.

For a set called Redline, it's kind of disappointing to see that half of the novelties are just error codes. It'd be nice to see novelties that relate to more sportier dashboards since redline connotes revving the engine all the way up
