Arch users are superior. They don't piddle with things like concerning themelves with the shortcomings of lesser OS'

That's what Gentoo is for.

Oh yeah what's going on with 40's support? Have you considered making any changes?

Demand is showing so I'm considering a dedicated 40s kit, but for now I'm waiting on quotes before making any major decisions, tho physical 40s compat will be on the base kit, I just need to update it.

The following keys can be removed from the kits since they either serve no practical purpose or are not commonly used. Sorted top to bottom from “totally useless” to “somewhat useful but may not be worth including”.
  • 1.75c keys in spacebars — not used outside of a small number of 40s boards (which this set doesn't support);
  • second 1c and second 1.25c in spacebars — not used outside of a small number of ortho boards (which this set doesn't support);
  • second R4 1u Alt in base and GUI — only useful if there are 1.5u Super keys;
  • R1 1u Backspace in base — not commonly used;
  • R4 1u 00 — only useful for standalone numpads;
  • R4 2u Shift — popular in East Asia for GK64 and similar 60% layouts w/ arrows, but not commonly used elsewhere.
In place of these, keys to consider adding are F13 to base (as previously mentioned in the thread) and 2× 1.5u Super to base and GUI (in which case you would keep the second 1u Alt keys).


I feel like text mods would be more fitting for an Arch based/inspired set

Same, I feel like this would look 110% better with just text mods and maybe a separate icon mod kit.

I'm inclined to say that text mods would be a good idea. It would probably give the set a bit more character and tie in a bit better with the theme. On the other hand, I think that keeping the current look and adding the GUI kit mods on top is also a nice prospect.

Edit: correction

Just realized I had missed this, thanks Konstantin! Definitely will be putting most of these changes in,

small update, Samples are inbound from Mechfashion that should be here hopefully by Mid-Late Jan, the same may happen for our metal Artisans from Asero! Updates with photos of the samples will be posted then along with kitting updates assuming that quotes from GMK are back by then,

Hoping for a NorDE/UK Kit as well. These are very nice keycaps, but I will not buy it without a NorDE kit.

Looks great! :D

Would it be possible to add a blank 1.25u in spacebar-profile for the common 6.25-split space (2.25 - 1.25 - 2.75) to the Powerline-kit?

EDIT: Found the missing B

There actually used to be 2 1.25us in that kit, so adding one back can definitely be done.

At this point I'm waiting on quotes before drafting a full nordeuk kit, but most likely it will happen based on the responses I saw

I know there's a pretty long earlier thread on Arch's original icon and colors, but just wanted to double-check.  Is it a foregone conclusion that the original Arch blue won't be in the set, not even as part of an add-on kit?

No, if you want to get as close to the arch blue in a set, you'd have to get GMK Umbra, because my set would too close to it if I used it.

The reason this set uses a different color than the original Arch blue is because some other set previously used a similar colorscheme? This does not make much sense. This design is obviously not a copy of GMK Umbra, but instead inspired by something completely different; that something of course being Arch Linux, where there is an obvious choice for the colorscheme. Any Linux user knows, at least roughly, what "Arch blue" looks like.

I do not understand why, in this hobby, some people think select colorschemes are reserved. There are people that jump into new threads and say, "The colorscheme of this set of keycaps is too similar to that of set x, which ran once y years ago, so you cannot make this."

We are talking here about blue and dark grey/black, a common combination all over the world.

We should let people have what they want and vote with their money. If there can be a bunch of cyberpunk keysets, many run at the same time and which all use relatively similar colors, then there can be more than one blue and dark grey keyset.

This is a valid belief, but first personally, I don't feel it's right to be selling a near identical set for profit. When you said that the community should vote with their money, they do, and almost always its against too similar colorways. As much as I'd want to use the true Arch colors, my personal morals and the ethics of our community don't support it. By the way, there are no cyberpunk  keysets, all of the ones that were put up were trolls haha

I think these people are more just being vocal about it, I am guessing the number of people that would actually boycott a set for too similar colors based on some principle would be very few. You'd probably just lose some sales from people that like the color but bought the older set that is similar to the new one being run.

There is a lot of gate keeping in this hobby.

(Posting the same update I put on the discord)
Kitting overhaul is likely, and will be confirmed once I have quotes for current kitting,
any major changes to lower cost(if it ends up being needed) will be left up to a poll of Kit Ver 1 vs Kit Ver 2, with a "price tag" for each to show the difference in overall value. For new kits, 40s and NorDeUK will happen based on the IC form responses, Ortho/Ergo is a hard maybe and if I do add it they'll be one kit. Numpad kit is possible if costs do need to be cut down for shell, along with moving all 40s compat and iso compat to respective kits(this is what the poll will decide). I'll keep you guys updated on this.
Btw If you wanna be able to vote on any of hte polls I put up or be up to date on any small updates, join the discord, will make mnaging things way easier on my end

I recommend this kitting for base kit: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=109588.0 with/without a few minor tweaks, like adding that accent 6.25 space bar to base  ;D

A combo of all 3? I was most likely going to do just a 40s and a ortho/combo but I can definitely do this.

know it probably wouldn't happen but a nord style ergo/ortho/40s kit would be killer

Show Image

A combo of all 3? I was most likely going to do just a 40s and a ortho/combo but I can definitely do this.

YES. I repeat. YES.
I would be in instantly if we got an assembly kit

small update, the Accentlegend/mod color ral is now 260 20 05 instead of 260 20 10, it's a less bluish shade and more true to the renders.

as an arch user I told myself this was not going to just spread my wallets legs but It has been spread. The more I look at this set more I like it. It's those Alpha's I love so much. Sudo  and that enter key. I use arch btw.

Holy ****, the real logo is in?! <3

I am buying everything. Hell, whatever kits you make I'll buy two of each.

I wanted to check on this actually, and see if you have permission to be using the Arch logo? According to their trademark policy it can't be used if there is commercial intent, or for merchandising purposes, e.g. on t-shirts etc.

It would also require "TM" be included on the logo as well - if approved. Just an FYI and something that should be looked into.

That is covered near the bottom of the OP:

Use of the Arch Logo and Name Approved by the Arch Trademark team
I Understand that This Set Does Look Like GMK Apollo, but I have recieved permission from
Octix to run this set.
Proof of This can be sent by request

Not sure about the trademark.

Like poloman said I got explicit permission from them to run the set with the logo but they never mentioned that I would have to add the tm to the novs, I'll email them again to make sure

Ah, very good! I read over the thread but must have missed that.   :-X

I believe as long as you got approval then it should be fine, I was simply going off of what the Wiki was stating! Seems like you have it all covered and did your homework, I'll send you a DM just to make sure we get any information needed so there are no surprises or delays regarding this from our end down the line and go ahead and let the team know that this logo should be fine for production.

Great efforts and design :thumb:

I have all the information needed for logo use on the GMK side - this won't be a problem to manufacture. Giving this set a huge thumbs up on my end  :thumb:

To fit the theme you should make a keyboard that requires the firmware to be programmed before each use   :p

Ofc Ofc, also forgot to ask, I'm pretty sure the cuts in the arch logo would need to be removed(I swapped the arch logo from a simplified one to the real one a few days after sending the original kits for quotes) do you know yourself if they need to be or not? I'll dm you the svg if you need it.
