GMK Rainy Day (round 2) Group Buy May 15th - June 15th

GMK Rainy Day (round 2) Interest Check

Group Buy May 15th - June 15th!






About |

After such great feedback from round 1 and after more requests than I was expecting, I wanted to bring Rainy Day back for a round 2. I didn't want round 1 folks to feel pressured into getting another round by changing and adding a bunch of things to the set. There were a few changes that were needed though. But as always I am open to feedback and criticism and am happy to make further changes that suit your needs, to the best of my ability.

Important Notes:
- The colors will be the exact same as round 1. The renders may look slightly different though. However the final outcome should be identical or extremely close to round 1. I will have pictures of the real caps below.



Colors |




Kits|
Base Kit:


Spacebars Kit:


Hangul Kit:

(NOTE: sublegends in render are not perfect. GMK legends are a bit thicker. I will either tweak this render or just ask that you reference my picture of round 1 keys)

International Kit:


Novelties Kit:




Deskmats |

Streetlight:


Stonewash:

Thank you so much for rerunning this!! Has to be one of my all time favorite sets. Always regretted not picking up the Hangul alphas kit when I had the chance. Also thank you for making it "Caps Lock" instead of "Caps". That was my only complaint for R1.

That seems to be the genius marketing strategy that I accidentally created lol. It's interesting because the Hangul kit didn't do super great in round 1 so I didn't expect there to be so much demand for it this time around. That might have been due to the Hangul kit being separate from the base kit. There seems to be quite a vocal demand for it now though so I will certainly explore adding it back either as an add-on kit or maybe as part of the(a) base kit.

Any chance of switching from the 1.5u "<- Back" legend to the "Backspace" one? Also was R3 Control purposefully excluded from kitting?

edit:
Another render mistake, looks like 2x mod pipe instead of 1 alpha and 1 mod pipe.
3-key 40s is incorrect row profile and missing r3 tab.

Yeah, R1 Hangul kit's orders were only about 19% of Base kit's. Some were probably turned away by the extra cost, but how many?



Offering two Base kits would make everyone happy, but Base MOQ would essentially be double.

This is one of my favorite sets, and Iím honestly tempted to get another base so I can have a Caps Lock vs R1ís Caps, but really, the magic is in being able to order a deskmat after foolishly forgetting to the first time around!

Happy itís back for more people to enjoy (and please, for the love of whatever gods you pray to that you can slip me a couple of ďcaps lockĒ keys lol)!

Your voices have been heard. Due to the overwhelming feedback received, a Hangul kit has been added to the Interest Check. I am still actively reviewing and taking action on other feedback as well, just wanted to post the Hangul kit since that is like 80% of all the feedback right now lol.

Kitting looks a lot better now, I think it's still odd to have accent 40s esc without matching accent enter. Would look better to have them match.

Shame this is another set which has come back for a R2 and dropped UK-ISO support (Metropolis/Phantom/other flashbacks). It's one of my favourite sets and would have been something I'd of happily picked up again but will give it a pass this time. GLWIC

Your feedback has once again been heard. Windows caps locks are back. I thought about how to best include them in the offering that made the most sense for the most people. I ended up putting them in the spacebars kit again and renaming it to "spacebars+" to reflect the change. My reasoning was:

1) the windowed keys were in the spacebars kit last time and people seemed to like it.
2) people who bought R1 base kit can just buy spacebars+ to get the "caps lock" stepped key they always wanted for a much lower financial commitment than an entirely new base kit. Or, if they want a new basekit because of shine, they probably also want new spacebars for the same reason anyway.
3) the spacebars kit is already pretty robust so these 2 keys shouldn't raise the price by much and thus shouldn't make or break the deal for people only interested in the spacebars.

Of course, these are just my thoughts. It's your opinion that matters so let me know what you think about this arrangement and how it could be improved to serve your needs. I won't edit my current IC form, to keep the data clean and consistent, so in regard to the windowed keys, just let me know here.

Thanks!
