Re: [IC] GMK EARTH TONES | DEC 8 - LATIN KIT UPDATED!

The size of the base kit has been reduced drastically to provide the lowest possible price while still supporting as many standard layouts as possible
So TKL kits are becoming the new base kits? To be honest I'm disappointed, I really liked this set as a nice, classy alternative to the super clean BOW. For me it had a similar vibe as GMK Noir has for WOB, but with that kitting decision I find it hard to justify a buy  :(

DECEMBER 10, 2020 UPDATES:

- Base Kit Updated
- Added Space Bar Kit


Next Update:
- More Renders!
- Novelties Revamp

Thanks!  :p
I prefer the old base kit soldly because of the 1 6.25u accent space bar. I believe adding one 6.25u space bars to base won't add much to the price. Now I need to also buy thr space bars kit in order to use that 1 space key. I would say we should limit the amount of plastic produced since the theme is about the earth.

You would be surprised, one spacebar could potentially add up to $5 to the final retail price. It's better to keep all accent spacebars in a separate kit. That kit's gotta meet MOQ too, after all, and the more incentive people have to buy it, the easier that becomes.

That being said, I think it's fine the way as it currently is. The 6.25c space in base just needs to be updated to be alpha-colored.

Love the colour of the mods, please consider a UK ISO or International kit as well.  I think a dark alpha kit along with dark mods would look superb on certain boards.

Since you are redoing the novelties, please consider using your accent color, a novelty space bar would be great since there aren't many of them right now in the market of GMK.

Really love this set Zion, nice work.

These colors as Konstantin stated are super appealing especially for those of us who love those clean, minimalistic looking sets.


Will add it to my wish list.

Thank you so much! Yes, I only covered the alphabet. The baybayin for the numbers had way too many variations and could be cause for confusion so I decided not to include them. :thumb:

Love the thoughtful novelty designs, clearly a lot of love went into them. That said, I'm not sure about your kitting decisions here. Which rows in your novelty kit map to rows on the keyboard? I see a slightly-smaller Earth novelty paired with "Create" - is that intended as a smaller Enter key? Also, novelties typically replace modifiers, so the decision to offer alpha-colored novelties (but not accent-colored novelties) is very unique and worth confirming.

Lastly, the Iron180 is by Smith + Rune, not Nathan_.

Best of luck with the IC!

I am loving the color scheme, will definitely buy the base kit! The novelties rework is nice, but I probably wouldn't purchase them as they are, as I much prefer the elements and "eh" symbols to "The Creation" symbols. Would love to see more novelties representing land (perhaps some trees or vegetation) and water. Same with the desk mats - would highly prefer some elements to "The Creation" design.

And I second the "eh" Rama keycap idea! Shiny turquoise to match the set would be  :cool:!
