[IC] GMK SoWaRe - Replica or Inspired?
« on: Fri, 31 July 2015, 23:52:22 »





GB is on hold for now due to us not having enough time to run it.









Hello geekhackers!



This is an interest check for GMK SoWaRe. This group buy would be run by myself, with help from several GeekHack friends, who would act as USA proxies to assist with keeping the costs down. This started as a SoWaRe replica set, however along the way vesper and I have fallen in love with the beige alphas. This can still be a replica set; however, I would like to gather interest from the community.
 
Picture of an old mockup: The current mockup is BEIGE, however we are open to the original Soware, which is light grey. Please express your interest in whichever you prefer!


Unfortunately, Christoph from GMK is currently on holidays for the next two weeks, so I cannot receive the mockup that I was waiting for.
Changes that will be made to the above mockup are:
-            OG Cherry legends (Icons and Legends with full words written out)
-            Windows 7 keys in the same teal as the alphas
-            Remove one short shift (there are two in the mockup)
-      Windowed keys perhaps?
 
Please fill out the survey found at this link if you are interested: http://goo.gl/forms/iAHKNTGT8s Please give us feedback now, so that we can get a new mockup when GMK is back.
I am interested in knowing if you would like us to run a full GMK Soware set, or just a mod pack to accompany massdrop’s set. If you are interested in the beige alphas, or would prefer the replica grey set.
 
Any questions or comments please discuss below! As soon as I have an updated mockup, I will update the OP.


Many thanks to OTD for the original SoWaRe set, without them this wouldn't be possible.
 
<3 from Byker and VesperSAINT

Re: [IC] GMK SoWaRe - REPLICA/INSPIRED?!
« Reply #1 on: Fri, 31 July 2015, 23:53:59 »
Please keep in mind, this is an INTEREST CHECK. NOT A GROUP BUY.

There is nothing in motion right now except just gathering interest.

There is no guarantee this will happen, or not happen, for a long time from now.

THIS GB WILL NEVER HAPPEN WITHOUT THE BLESSING/CONSENT OF THE ORIGINAL MAKERS.

If they do not want this to happen, a REPLICA will not happen from us. Period.

However, this does not mean something else inspired, or just something different, might not happen.

Please also note, in the case this set ENDS UP NOT BEING A REPLICA, IT WILL NOT BE CALLED SOWARE.

We have no plans on doing SP at this point in time.


We really do appreciate the feedback and interest. Thank you ~

MOQ is very high I believe 300? At least when I asked about it.

Massdrop didn't add RGB to maximize their profits..

Please fill out the survey now if you can, since we won't be receiving new mockups for 2-3 weeks and would like to be able to use feedback received now, for the next mockup!

Looks so much better than MD's, of course I think CC is closer to OG SoWare than N9.

Another possibility is doing the RGBY mods in CC and running that with the Alphas.  Since a **** ton of people bought Hyperfuse, if someone wanted to do SoWare instead, they'd only really have to swap the Alphas.  That restricts the number of boards you could use the set on, but makes for a cheaper set.  Just an idea.

Keep in mind, guys. The current mockup for the alpha color is BEIGE (NOT GRAY). We actually like how the beige looks with the blue legends.

Of course, we are open to discussion :)

wait what do you mean just swap the alphas with hyperfuse, they don't have rbg legend mods or yellow arrows?

I would say it really depends on how much interest we get in a certain amount of time. If enough interest, we'll probably move onto doing it as soon as GMK allows. There really shouldn't be any delays on our part... HOPEFULLY :))

As for me , i prefer to beige rather than light grey, just because grey match with Triumph Adler and Hyper Fuse well but beige match this soware more well.

Please no symbol capslock. I'm somewhat ambivalent about this set. Would be nice to see shots of colour chips, rather than just the notoriously inaccurate GMK mockup.

Oh. screw that crap I want legit so ware.

Then why are you here?  Not like this is legit soware either, what with it's beige caps.

I like how this is claimed to be real soware in two other places and here?  "Oh we're open to doing original soware"  If it's original soware, you don't need to be sold on it, it should be that way already. 

EDIT: this isn't to say this is a bad set or whatever; it's actually kinda handsome in it's own way, but this isn't much closer to soware than MD's skolch (dolware?) is.  Maybe call it beiware if you keep colors as they are.

This is simply inspired by SoWaRe, as GMK simply does not have the exact same colours of the original, I'd say a beige or light Grey (I prefer light Grey) would have to be a suitable alternative.

I believe that byker did mention the mockup is a preliminary mockup, and the base colours of the alphas are to be debated.

EDIT: this isn't to say this is a bad set or whatever; it's actually kinda handsome in it's own way, but this isn't much closer to soware than MD's skolch (dolware?) is.  Maybe call it beiware if you keep colors as they are.

This is simply inspired by SoWaRe, as GMK simply does not have the exact same colours of the original, so I'd say a beige or light Grey (I prefer light Grey) will have to be a suitable alternative.

That's great and fine.  Don't call it and sell it as "real soware" if it's not.  It'd be like if the classic beige set suddenly got gray alphas, but was still being claimed to be classic beige because it was inspired by classic beige.

Again, nice set.  Still not soware, stop trying to hijack and sabotage other buys calling this real soware.

EDIT: I legit think this is a set that would look good on my white hhkb and am contemplating getting it (and skolch for my gray hhkb), but I don't like the adversarial bs around the two already.  No one pulls this when two other sets that don't look the same get started at the same time, why start it here.

After staring at my Wyse caps, Dolch caps, and pic of gmk colors, I think that 2B might be the best choice for mods and maybe 2M for alphas.  GMK doesn't appear to have much in the way of light greys.

We originally wanted to start the interest check with two final mockups, one inspired set (beige), one replica set (grey). The only reason that we started the interest check before we have final mockups is to let people know our intentions of running it, as there is a massdrop group buy for a similar set. If poeple were buying that, then we wouldn't run this. However, from interest so far, it looks like people want a GMK Soware run by geekhackers. The other benefit of starting it early is that we can get feedback on what everyone wants to see in this set. And if you read the interest check, we aren't saying this is a beige set, it could be if people like it, or it could be replica soware, but unfortunately that is all we have the mockup for right now.


All we ask is that you let us know via the google form what you would prefer, so that we can change this set to best fit GH's wants!
