I made following poll for accent and novelties kit. I will wait until tomorrow then i will make a decision depending on results.
VOTE HERE FOR ACCENTS AND NOVELTIES
 In case the new version wins then i will make another 24h poll for the accent color. I can also include the pumpkin novelty into the new version.

This suggestion is really seducing.
I don't wanna lose the pumpkin,but actually prefer another accent color than orange.

In case the old novelty version wins, then i will remove the accents from the base and numpad kits. In case the new version wins then i will make another 24h poll for the accent color. I can also include the pumpkin novelty into the new version.
I think the burgundy is a must.

I know there’s some controversy over the pumpkin, but I can see it fitting in (harvest moon kinda makes it fit seasonally)

Haha, I don't think there's controversy over the pumpkin. My concern was with the size of the original accent kit. I don't remember it doing so well in relation to the number of base kits when the set first ran. I think it was a little pricey because of it's size. Im not out to get the pumpkin, I was just giving my two cents on how it fit in.

I think removing the F row keys and maybe dropping one of the accent colors could keep the costs in check?

Agreed, I was torn about options in the poll because the old accents kit seems a little large, but I don't really like the orange -- it's just a bit jarring with the thin blue letters.

I like the idea a few others mentioned of taking the old accent kit and cutting it down to maybe just two colours (love the burgundy and light blue the most!) and removing the F row at least.

I'm worried that the original accent kit might be too large. While I prefer the original colors, I think if it wins the poll, it might be worth considering trimming it down a bit. I don't really think the alternate color function row keys are necessary, and the variety of novelties could be cut down a bit. I think the moon keys are a must, in order to stay true to the theme of the set, but weren't the pumpkin novelties first introduced when the set was supposed to be run around Halloween? While they're neat, I don't think they really fit the eclipse/moon theme very well. That said, I'm not really against the pumpkin, just voicing my concerns on the size of the accent/novelty kit.

Don't worry i will trim it down. That was the plant already ;)

Pumpkin was introduced first time because it was held around Halloween. But i think its ok to offer it in this round too, because its possible owners might get their set near Halloween.

Maybe if Eclipse gets really popular. However the mat would be not Carbon but Eclipse style.

Hmm now that the light blue accents have been moved into the accent kit. I was wondering if maybe the 6u off-center spacebar could be moved into the base kit, and maybe add 6u light blue spacebars to the spacebar kit? I'm not sure if that will make the Spacebar kit too large? Sorry, I'm a little biased towards the Yuri blue accents XD.

As i said previosly i will lock the kits once this week ends. What means the drop is not far away from happening. I can't tell you the date at the moment. Until then i will make changes only if there is an significant error.

I appreciate all the excitement people express here for the upcoming drop. Thanks for support ;) <3

I really liked the Orange accent kit. But well. Let's see what is left in the actual final set.

I like the orange accents too but as the poll shows people want more the old style accents. And indeed they do match the theme quite better than the orange accents. Anyway in case second round happens one day then i will include orange accents as well.

Hmm now that the light blue accents have been moved into the accent kit. I was wondering if maybe the 6u off-center spacebar could be moved into the base kit, and maybe add 6u light blue spacebars to the spacebar kit? I'm not sure if that will make the Spacebar kit too large? Sorry, I'm a little biased towards the Yuri blue accents XD.

I don't want to do it because the 6u spacebars are not as common and i want to keep the pricing low. Most 'common' layouts are using 6.25u or 7u spacebar.

Hey Tombs. Any chance of a 00 key as well? Might be a bit superfluous, but i've always liked to split numpad 0

Previously i've included this key in every base set or numpad kit. However i do not see those used and i decided to keep the 00 key out of the basic kits. Its more of an exotic key which belongs into some sort extra/exotic kit which i don't have in the current setup.

 I know you already addressed a similar comment. But I also would like to se a 00 key. I agree that it is not fair to make everyone pay for this key in the base kit, but Now that more desiners are separating  the numpad into its own kit i think it would be nice to see this included. Also im not a ISO user but woudent mind if you threw the basics  ISO keys in with the numpad kit  like GMK minimalist. I know some are opposed to having this keys in base kits and I know they rearly make MOQ on there Own and Maybe this would help the numpad reach MOQ. I maybe asking some one to buy a key they may not need but i am willing to buy some keys that i dont need to help someone else get there layout. we are all in the same community.

Anyways i think this set looks really nice and look forward to it running.

ISO keys do not belong logically into numpad kit. Tho i already considered to move ISO keys into numpad... Anyway i've added 00 key to the numpad kit.

This keyset is about eclipse as astronomical event. However i don't mind if people refer it to the Eclipse IDE ;) I do appreciate your support  :thumb:

Hey t0mb3ry, why is it that we are seeing split numpad kits now? Isn't it less cost-effective for GMK? I've always preferred the single base kit sets. I'm not sure I feel positively about this new trend.

Hey t0mb3ry, why is it that we are seeing split numpad kits now? Isn't it less cost-effective for GMK? I've always preferred the single base kit sets. I'm not sure I feel positively about this new trend.

Its done to reduce the price for the base kit. Pricing is important for the success (there are also other aspects). Its not a biggy if numpad or any other kit fails to meet the moq. But its a biggy if the core/base kit does not succeed, which means whole project failed. Thus many designers consider to chop down the base kit as much as possible and support with it only the most popular layouts. And the most popular layouts are the range between 60% and TKL.

I personally prefer the huge base sets as it was done in GMK Carbon R2 because: its cost effective per key and most important: it does cover every basic layout properly and extensively. However most buyers look for pricing and not coverage.

So the whole development is based on experience from previous group buys.

I am personally sad to see the final renders, do wish good luck with the drop thought.

I was really fond of the burgundy colors also the novelty design from the original buy. I think the 1u novelties in various color were nice. Personally I think the novelty kit was a make or break for this set. Sadly this just broke it for me. The reason being the removal of the 1u novelties and the adding of the orange accents in place of the burgundy. I am kinda curious to see how this set plays out as seeing how the pole went. Though 41 votes is hardly the entire community.

I am personally sad to see the final renders, do wish good luck with the drop thought.

I was really fond of the burgundy colors also the novelty design from the original buy. I think the 1u novelties in various color were nice. Personally I think the novelty kit was a make or break for this set. Sadly this just broke it for me. The reason being the removal of the 1u novelties and the adding of the orange accents in place of the burgundy. I am kinda curious to see how this set plays out as seeing how the pole went. Though 41 votes is hardly the entire community.


Agreed, the novelties were a key part of this set, and the burgundy and 1u accents were a must-have. That orange just clashes too much with the legend colours for me. Best of luck with the GB though! I'll see how the pricing works out for a base kit, though with GMK Calm Depths on the way it'll be harder for me to justify another pure blue/grey set.

The orange novelties kind of stick out like a sore thumb with the colors of this set. Liked the burgundy better.

I agree.   burgundy looks better than orange.

Maybe violet keycaps can be changed to burgundy?

As i said the burgundy accents are not doing well in combination with Eclipse (see the render below by Oblotzky). The orange accents do match the colorway way better. Also there are other two accents.


Anyway i am staying with orange accents.

I like the burgundy (with the same color legend as the alphas and mods) more than the purple.  Maybe burgundy can just replace the purple accents?

Color itself looks god and fits the colorway IMO, but legend color ruins it. If you'd change the legend color, I'd prefer it over the orange.

Oh well, who needs any other accent than the light blue one anyway. :D

The legend color is not the issue... (the legend color was kept just to make this fast render). The problem here is that burgundy does not pop as accent. It might look good in a different colorway constellation but not with this one.
