TKC, have you decided on kits for this? Will orange mods be part of base or separate kit? If you are planning to offer orange mods as separate kit, then please consider the complete mod kit with numpad mods in orange.

The original skidata orange mod kit didn't include full coverage for 75%. Was missing the right column of keys in the correct profiles


I’m mobile so I can’t share the files. BUT I was planning to basically copy Terminal R2 and change the green to orange. So there would be a base kit, all N9 with orange legends. Then an orange modifier kit. On the fence about the 40 kit we did; not sure this will have the same steam that Terminal gets.  I’d also like to do relegendables like the last Skidata ha.

Any thoughts?

Just saw the terminal at your portal, love the mods setup. Just one suggestion. Could the rest of mod keys over arrows section also be offered in orange (in del, home ...)? I would love to have full orange mods section  for that full uniform mod look. It may increase the cost but I am sure we have enough orangephiles in community to gobble it up.

Please include blue enters (ISO ANSI) in the orange modifier kit  :thumb:

Would also love the sublegends on keys like Q and M to be the same as OG skidata.

"TBD" is a weird name for a set. Why choose that?

I don’t know whether you’re joking or not, but... TBD is “to be defined”. That is, there’s no official name yet.

Terminal R2 color kits, like the Skidata R1 GB, do not have full support for 75%/65% right column.

In fact, the Terminal R2 color mod kit is missing some keys that were included in the first Skidata GB.

Skidata Round 1 color kit had R1 Print Screen, Scroll Lock & Pause/brk.

I would love to see these, plus R1 Delete and either:

R1 Home, R2 PgUp, R3 PgDn, R4 End

or

R1 Home, R2 End, R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn

These would allow full orange coverage of 75% and 65% boards' right hand side, pictured here:

Ah, so To Be Defined is the unofficial name? Why'd you pick that name? Is it a code/reference to what may be the official name down the road?
I think the name "SD" (SkiData) is a better acronym than "TBD"; the latter can be euphemistic.

Second of all... Can’t we get the blue accents in the base kit? I sure am not the only one who couldn’t care less for orange mods, but really digs the blue keys.

I'm guessing it's because the original run also had the blue keys in the color pack.

I am extremely glad to see you've added support for the right column on 65/75% layouts.

One question:
What are the stepped R4 keys meant for in the orange mod kit?
There is no such thing as "too much orange."

Okay, so I took another look at the orange mod kit.

I believe we're still missing this small cluster of caps:

205191-0

The R1 Home key is particularly important for a 75% column consisting of:

R1 Delete
R1 Home
R2 PgUp
R3 PgDn
R4 End.

Aside from that, I have a question:
205193-1

What layouts are these R1 End and R1 PgDn supposed to be used with? I can't think of any off the top of my head. These two caps are also present in the orange mod kit

One other thing I was wondering about:

205195-0

I understand that some layouts use 1u ctrl/alt on the right side of the bottom row. Do any layouts require two 1u alts or two 1u ctrl?

I assume the SkIIdata orange is not the same as the GMK Carbon R2 orange.     Has anyone compared the R1 carbon to the original skidata?  Do they clash or complement each other?

The grey is not the same so they will clash to some degree.

Filled out the IC form.


Some renders on the first post would be nice, even if they were renders of round 1. I think it gives a much better impression of what to expect this set to look like on a keyboard.

Renders will come forthwith as soon as the kits are decided upon. If you want to see what Skidata looks like on a board just do a search on Reddit. There should be a bunch!

I can't wait for the group buy for this set! I'm definitely in for the base and relegendables kits!

I don't think the blue spacebars kit goes particularly well with the orange/black theme, though. Black (and/or possibly orange) keys in that kit would be a better match in my opinion. The base and 40's kits look great, though!  :thumb:

Yes, however I don't think any sort of rendition of Skidata will have trouble hitting higher MOQs if it were to be necessary for basically any of its kits. It's such a popular set and TKC are a well respected, trusted brand given their track record who work with other competent proxies, this is going to be a hit for sure.
