I think we're missing an R4 1.25u Fn key as well.

Also I understand orange mods may not everyone's cup of tea, is there a possibility to have them available to low MOQ but slightly higher prices? Those who love orange will bear the cost as we understand  its pull, and will be able to sleep w/o fearning that it may not make MOQ. If the kit sells well, then lower price at higher MOQ will please the buyers anyway.


Are you talking about this cluster? You're not being very specific. Orange mods are indeed available as an option.

My bad, I was referring to orange mods  cluster, as it appears that render is missing Insert key and was wondering why the render doesnt have Delete End Pg Dn as R2 keys. I know that colour orange is not of everyones liking, but if the full orange mod set is made available in this drop with low MOQ and higher price then, hopefully it will get the set made. I will buy the set even if ithe orange mods are not a complete set, but it would be better if the entire thing was offered.

I want everyone to understand that adding more keys will make the kits more expensive. On Terminal the AE Mod kit has less keys than this already has, and the GB price was $90 for the kit. If we add more and with annual price increases this kit is going to cost >$100. Just want to make that clear.

Personally I am willing to pay. Its not a cheap hobby, but when its what one wants then one will pay for it.

I will absolutely be in for a base set. For everyone wanting the orange mods, I believe it's approaching the point where it'll be more practical to have a full blown orange set with alphas as well because the price will be only marginally lower than the base set. Not sure how you all feel about it, but if I have a choice between paying ~100 for orange mods or 140 for the same mod set with alphas, I'd rather buy the full orange set.

Im with you, Swayde. This project has been delayed long enough. Were splitting hairs over a navigation cluster. AFA Fn keys go, I can change the 1u SUPER keys to Fn. The 1.25u menu icon key can become Fn. Thats about all the changes Im willing to make at this point.

Janglad is working on the final renders. Im about to send off to GMK for a quote. Were going live in ~2 weeks.

New Kits. Not rendered yet. Im going to wait for some feedback.

GMK said they cant make the orange relegendable tops, so we only get clear. Also removed the blue spacebars completely. I dont feel they look right on the kit, they are available for purchase other places, and keeping them out keeps the kits prices down. Lets hear what y'all have to say! Hope you dig.


Still hoping against hope to get the full orange modifiers! (Looks like Insert is the only missing key?)

If youre hoping to get the entire navigation cluster in orange thats 5 additional keys we would need. Personally, I dont think it looks right when the nav cluster is all the alt color, Im open to suggestions. But I cant add 5 keys for one or two voices.

Anyone want to chime in?

So this set was never meant for a full sized kb. Got it. Alright, count me out. I'd rather make a set on Maxkeys than settle for a mismatched, incomplete set. Odd to support niche keyboard sizes, but, you know, not the most common. I really do appreciate you doing this GB, but sad to see it fall flat on its face for my dream. So it goes.

For visual reference, this is what I want (I know the colors are off), and have been pining for since mid-2016. Orange is my favorite color, so the orange nav cluster (Thanks, I didn't know what to call this before!) looks super slick to me. Would look fantastic on my IKBC MF108. Ah well, off to maxkeys! Hope everyone else enjoys this set! It does look fantastic. I just refuse to settle for anything but exactly what I want. :)

If what you want is exactly what you've stated, you'll have a hard time with Maxkeys. They dont offer much compatibility and their cap profile is entirely different from GMK.

Yeah I agree. I'm likely picking up the base kit only this time, and I've been excited about this for long enough lol

Please, don't. That would only annoy winkeyless PC users.

That would actually work pretty well for me (others are welcome to disagree, of course). I think one R4 1.25u Fn key is better than nothing.

Disagree on changing the 1u SUPERs to Fn.

I think Enrique was the only one to ask for additional FNs, and he wanted 1.25u. No need to change the 1u Supers

Yesh please. Don't ditch the supers for Fn keys.

A 1.25 Fn and a 1u Fn are perfectly fine. Does anyone even use the menu key any more in light of programmable layers?

Eh, not quite. The mockup I posted was from MaxKey's customizer. It's definitely not as high quality as this GB will be, but it nails the aesthetic I want. Compatibility and cap profile are negligible for me. I appreciate the input though!

For the love of god please keep the 1u Supers. Tokyo Nights 1u supers are completely dead to me because of the tacky windows icons. Supers make super sense. Hell even the little diamond or, worst case, Code, is better  than windows icons. Fn changes the meaning of the key altogether.

About the convex spacebar sizes, I've noticed that most of the existing split bar keyboards, in order to reach 6.25, use 2.75+1.25+2.25. So I wonder why GMK didn't think of offering a 1.25 convex spacebar. Right now their offer includes 1 2 2.25 2.75. I don't know if the OP considers it worth to ask gmk for a new 1.25 convex keycap.

It took a few years of asking for them to finally make the 2.25 and 2.75 spacebars convex. I don't think its going to happen on this GB, sorry.
