 I think WS1 is better for white color because coupled color is yellowish color. As WS2 is quite blue tone, so I don't know they go well together.

Really like the concept. I hope the gold color is achievable without turning out too orange or brown in plastic. Would agree with Lightning that I would prefer icon + text mods.

The color choice is definitely appropriate for the theme, but I'm not sure that WS2 is the right choice for the white, as it's quite cool. I associate ancient monumental architecture more with warm whites.

Your base kit is missing R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn.

Your spacebars kit has 1.75u space and second 1u space, which are only used on 40% boards, so they should be removed from the kit as they are effectively useless here.

Thank you! Fixing it now. As for WS2 vs WS1 I have to admit that I'm still undecided. Planning on buying a color ring very soon.

Very nice! Definitely enjoy the color scheme and overall theme; as a fan of history and an avid Civ player this speaks to me on a lot of levels :D

Any chance of seeing 2x 1.5u Super keys, and an extra 1u Alt for Mac 7u users? Also, having 1u novelties for R2 and R3 would allow 65% users to outfit the right column with fun novelties the full way down the board.

To paraphrase Ronnie Coleman, everybody wants accent mod kits, but no one wants to pay no high-a$$ed price for them. This ain’t KAT.

Custom color mods only kit at 100 moq is about 105$. A base kit with 250 moq with WS1 or WS2 white and this color could be held down to 130.

Go look at the prices and sales numbers for GMK Carbon R2, terminal, posh, and prepress, and while you’re at it, see GMK forge and GMK Rocket, and then the dual base kits of yuru, GMK Godspeed, space cadet r2, and classic blue. If you think higher moq will assuage your kitting issues with separate mods kits...go read Oblotzky’s justification of GMK oblivion r2 kitting after getting quotes.

This is also from someone who bought Carbon Umka. That said, if you ran white on bronze, and bronze on white base kits, I’d probably buy both.

Hey, Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I'll definitely do some research into this and see if it's more viable to produce a white on bronze variant of all of the rest of my kits rather than to offer a brass mod kit.

None of the GMK kitting cost concerns changes that both colorways are sweet and the the theme and novs are top notch. I think you’ve got a hit that upper level vendors will want and kitting is something that they can help talk out.

Hello,

I like the work you've put into this; very classy! I wanted to take a few moments and offer some kitting feedback.

There are a few experimental changes some ortholinear users are throwing around to make base GMK kits a bit more ortho friendly (and cut back on the number of total keys in many cases).

  • Change R2 PgUp to R2 Out
  • Change R3 PgDn/PgUp to R3 Read or Data
  • Change R4 End/PgDn to R4 Read or Data

Currently, you have 14 navigation keys in the base kit. Providing a few "generic" options will allow you to cut back the total number of keys, creating a smaller, leaner base kit. Further, these changes support richer ortholinear coverage (Planck, Preonic) without sacrificing much. In fact, you can cut two keys!

I understand that these alterations to existing keys may prove controversial for many 65% users who depend on correctly labelled keycaps for navigation purposes. However, be the change you want to see. I think this is worth brining up in an IC, even if the answer is a resounding no.

Lastly, here is a quick KLE mockup for how someone may utilize) ONLY the base kit on a preonic using the above recommendations. This is just my interpretation of how it may look, others may chose to do something different. Notice where "Out," "Read," and "Data" are positioned on the left handed mod column. If these keys did not exist, someone would need to use "End," "PgUp," and/or "PgDn" there instead, which would not look as good and certainly will not match the key function. With more generic legends, its less bothersome because keyboards do not have a specific function which matches "Out," "Data," or "Read" (at least not modern keyboards).   https://i.imgur.com/2dEcYM0.png

Thanks for your time and consideration. GLWIC!

Great set, definitely in. I would however absolutely go for WS1 for this set.

I have the GMK standard keycap ring and WS1 would be a lot better/creamier with this legend color. The harsh blue/grey of WS2 would not complement the brass tone imo.

EDIT: Fixed for mixing up WS1 and WS2 - thanks for the corrections folks!

I'll put in my vote for WS2. WS1 makes sense as a warm white, but I think WS2's cool white would better compliment the brass color
