The font is really weird especially using the letter 'ي' (ya) as an S just makes no sense to me. I appreciate the rise of Arabic GMK sets but idk.

Are we talking about IC presentation font?

Re: [IC] GMK Arabian Sea | Latin Base & Kitting changes

Update: Latin Base and New Kitting

Latin Base:

Now Latin Base is officially a part of GMK Arabian Sea keycap set, it features full ISO-UK support
as well as a new kitting

1) IC Form feedback shown that 82% users don't need numpad in base kit and i can't argue with that
Moving numpad to separate kit will allow us to reduce price which is a great thing, especially with Arabic Base
I will try to make a good price for a numpad so it should be approximately the same price (updated base + numpad kit)
as if you would buy a base kit with numpad in it.

2) 2.00U Shift has been added to both bases

3) R1 pipe is now in alpha color

Also, IC Form is updated, i would really appreciate if you'd take a couple minutes to fill it!

Do you think it's possible to run it with ePBT ? The lead time is huge, 16 months for some kits and haven't been delivered. And 160 keysets in the queue..

i don't know if they do have arabic subalphas but anyways i'll join i think.

Nah i didn't think about it. ePBT was really good a couple years ago back when they were using Gateron blanks to create a set but now it's not the quality i'm looking for, besides that the prices for their sets are just ridiculous

Is it just me or is the Arabic layout kind of off? For instance, on my keyboard the ظ is under the Z and the ط under X. The placement is the same on my virtual keyboards too.

Basically the layouts I'm used to look like this: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61AwL%2BdJw7L._AC_SY355_.jpg

Not gonna say that im an expert in arabic language but this symbol ي is the right one according to almost any arabic keyboard that i could find on the internet
The font is gonna be the same as in GMK Classic Arabic and pretty similar to MiTo's arabic pulse add-on

They're talking about the Arabic fonts used to spell out english words in the render titles and not the fonts on the keyboard itself

Stunning set. Really happy about the Latin base set and also like the novelties. Would it be too much to ask for a render on Iron 165 in teal?

Hi there! So far there is no updates - my lead vendor (and me) is waiting for the response from GMK (regarding arabic molds and some other issues) since June 18th and there is nothing we can do about that.

Pretty much everything else is done, i have a couple more boards renders in different colors and deskmat + possibly there is gonna be a RAMA or Salvul collab. I will be uploading any new updates each 2-3 weeks to keep people interested

Anyway, leave your email in the bottom of IC Form and i'll send you an email when this set reaches GB date

Thanks for your interest i really appreciate this!

Another idea… what’s the point of having so many R1 novelties? Wouldn’t it be better to have at least one for R2, R3, and R4? GMK Botanical had that, which gave the option of filling the macro column of a 65% with novelties

Would definitely be interested if it was a different profile. GMK is everywhere. KAT, KAM, DSA would definitely garner my interest.

Thanks for interest but im having a hard time imagining a sublegends on KAT/KAM or DSA profile, i mean i saw a great wave renders but it's pretty far in terms of quality for these profiles from GMK

I am glad this is GMK profile, as opposed to the others. Looking forward to this one. Wish numpad was part of base without a big price impact.

First of all i'm a big fan of R1 row

I don't think that there is "so many" of them, gmk hazakura had 6 novelties for R1
 
Basically i don't mind to add a couple keycaps for R2 and R3 but there is already a lot of keycaps in it and adding more will result in even higher price but i will consider it when we get to the quotes stage
 
P.S There is 2 1U R4 novelties already

You’re right about R4. I agree that two 1U’s are enough. Perhaps just one 1U novelty for R2 and R3. Don’t even need new designs, just not the ship as that is accented and would likely be used for ESC. The R1 ones are beautiful.

Hey, I really love the color scheme on this, kudos!

One comment about the NorDeUk set; There seems to be a key missing, which is the key that has comma+semicolon on it. It's supposed to be the exact same as period+colon, just with the comma. Instead there's an extra colon+semicolon key in there, which is already included in the latin base. Is that a render error, or will the NorDeUk set actually not have that key? I can probably just put some novelties down there, but it just seems like a slight oversight that could be corrected.

Yeah, looks like the ;: is there by accident, but there’s a ,; key missing next to the .:.

Hope this happens, these kinds of sets with Norde support are rare af.

The R4 1u \| key can be removed from this kit because there is already a R4 1u <> key, and you don't need both.

Consider using Meta instead of Menu for the R4 1.25u key, since it's a more versatile legend.

Hi. I never posted here before, but this IC grabbed my attention enough.

As others said, the font used for the Arabic sub-legends is not that nice and modern compared to the English legends, and it's a very noticeable difference for Arabs like me. I would advise you change the font to something that matches the style of the English legends, like Helvetica Nue.

Here's an example on how the sub-legends should look like:



Either way I love the colors, and I also love the name you picked.

Hi, thanks for the input!
Unfortunately there is no options for the font used in sublegends
This font is the only one GMK has for arabic, it's gonna be same as in GMK Pulse arabic add-on and GMK Classic Arabic.
The only question on the table right now is either it's gonna a be double-shot or UV-Print
Plus i'm not sure that this font would fit GMK sublegends requirements not mentioning it's not free to use
