Here's a mock up by Zambumon, http://imgur.com/SKtLbF6

The alphas will have a darker grey similar to the one on Penumbra right now. This highly resembles the Honeywell. Numberpad alpha will also be included.



So does this mean no colored, lowercase mods?

Yeah, there'll be no colored lowercase mods as mentioned before. Many people weren't really fond of the new capitalized and colored bottom row, so I'll mostly stick to the classics in this run.

Just got my set today, Sherryton- love it. Really looks good in person! Thanks for running the set ahead of the sale- as others have mentioned, it was fun to order last week, get it today.  :thumb:

In for the Accent Kit, of course... but just wondering, looks like we're losing some of the colorfulness on the bottom row modifier text. Is that unavoidable to keep cost reasonable? I think the colors are one of the charms to the set- give it a little funkyness that I like so I would be bummed to have to choose between colorful but all caps vs. better text uniformity but single color for all keys.

EDIT: too slow on the posting... asked and answered. However, it was just the capitalization that most seemed not to like, right? The colors are great IMO! I think that may make me less likely to buy the accent set and just live with the capitalized keys/ up my OCD medication (beer).

That's a shame, was looking forward to those the most, and honestly it's probably a deal breaker for me keeping this set.

FWIW, I think the issue is people weren't fond of the capitalized bottom row, not the colors. Without the colors, it's not even Penumbra imo.

I got a lot of messages saying otherwise. The original set didn't have colored bottom row so this definitely isn't original.

It was something new I was trying with the upcoming SA and this GMK set.

Dang you and your faster typing... but DITTO to everything... I'm a bit bummed about the render and would probably pass as-is. I love the colors, just don't like the upper case on current set.

I really liked the colored mods - Just didn't like the fact that they were capitalized as they were jarring with the other ones being CamelCased.  I'd really like that fixed, i.e. CamelCased colored mods for the bottom row to go with the colored mods on the other row.  That said, I'm in either way- just have to go back to all white, I guess, which is a shame.

Maybe a real poll of the people who actually put their money where their mouth is and bought it?  Or just a reconsideration in a poll in this IC?

It seems like a majority of us (includes me of course) really like the new colored mods. Maybe we can take a vote? Or do you guys prefer both?

The new colored mods will definitely add a hefty additional.

We're looking at around $60-65 with both versions or around $30-35 for just the colored version.

Take a vote. I'd rather the colored than white, but you said people like white more.
Also, make a thread on Reddit so they're aware. Not sure if they prefer white more.

Uh, yeah. The colored mods really make this set stellar.
I thought this whole time it was just the capitalized letters people had issue with.

Also, super glad you're going with the gray of the yellowed alphas. I love that color and glad it's going on the Solarized alphas.


(Only real grip I have is I personally think the mods are too dark to make out the blue, but that's just me.  :p )

Totally agree! Colored mods make this set interesting... loses a lot of zip with white, IMO, though like everything, I'm sure plenty will prefer that way. I thought it was just the caps too- that's my only issue, though I would live with caps over giving up the colors.

ps- love Romevi's subliminal small text messages...

That's actually the color of Honeywell. Check out this thread. I was using this color for Penumbra, and I realized that Honeywell actually most resembles this color. I'm really glad we chosed it :)

I feel like we should go with a different white for solarized because it would just be a copy of Honeywell alphas. CP is the closest color to the solarized alpha though.

My vote is for colored bottom row a since it brings in more colors from the solarized palette.

Just want to mention this again, is anyone else interested in a fixed 1.75u shift with icon and text? Current only includes icon. It's something that I really would like to see included as it will forever bother me if it's only icon.

I'm pretty sure that's just how GMK makes their pipe symbol. That's how it is on all my GMK sets. Plus EPBT, also makes their cherry keys with that same broken pipe legend.

I like the lowercase ctrl, alt, super. I'd also prefer the caps lock to have either both the symbol and words or just "caps lock." The one single icon sticks out to me. Either all icons or all text makes the most sense to me. Consistency for the legends is key.

Yeah, same.  :-[ It's interesting... looks like some yes/ some no. In Hydro the pipe on grey key is solid, the white pipe is broken. Meh, I think I'm probably ok with it too. If it hasn't bothered me yet...

I'm actually a fan of the white colored mods for the bottom row. I think in terms of capitalization the stock bottom row bugged me at first, but the more the think about it I guess I can just imagine the extra colors being purposely different to add a different "spin" to the entire composition (like how certain coding styles utilize all caps with certain words, etc.)

In the end of the day it's always convenient to have all the choices to make everyone happy but then again this will add a significant amount to the set.

If we are voting to have either only colored versus white text bottom row, I'd go with white. If enough people can pay up, both are okay as well.

I wonder if it's a difference between the full-sized and the 1U.  The 1U on mine have it solid, but I remember seeing it broken on the standard sized - have to check when I get home.

Throwing my 2c here. Sticking to the OG set is the best route in my opinion, but adding compatibility always wins. The 1st mockup is what the complete set should be, and the 2nd mockup is what is missing.





Colored mods or not, it's true to what it should be imo. I get my set in a couple of days, and I'll make my decision on the mods then.

I'll add it to the OP!

I won't reveal the responses until the end so I'll know what people really want right now. I'll record it and people might want to tweak their answers after the responses are revealed.

It's possible other sets have it unbroken but all my sets look like the picture you posted. I have R1 Hyperfuse and TA.

I wonder if it's a difference between the full-sized and the 1U.  The 1U on mine have it solid, but I remember seeing it broken on the standard sized - have to check when I get home.

Well that's interesting.  On Hyperfuse, my 1U mod has the split too, but the Carbon that I was using for reference at work doesn't.

Yep originative answered my ticket and this was intended.  Looking at a couple other sets this is also the case so all is good with me.

Might be overkill and more $$$ for sure, but I'd put in the form to complete the icon mods like below to accompany the icon caps:

I'm 100% for icon-only mods, but for this set it'd be overkill and unnecessary.

You're right, the lowred control, alt, OS, and arrows should suffice my needs.

For this set, you're trying to squeeze more text on the keycaps for the vibrance.

Just going to voice my dissent and say that I much prefer gray mods... The colored mods aren't a good facsimile of Solarized colors, and they look jarring. I'd prefer to stick to the original.
