Kits Ordered as of 4/09/2018:
As with most popular sets, I thought I would bring the VIM caps to this set as well. I teased it a bit on Instagram and the vote was overwhelming in favor of continuing with this idea.
This VIM kit is a little different than others in the past, as there are many colors that would look amazing as your VIM arrows. It is not just one color, like most VIM kits. This is probably the biggest VIM kit ever made, so you have multiple options and can swap out whenever you want.
I worked with my good friend from /u/woodkeys_click to make a true Ortholinear set for GMK 9009. We wanted to design an ortho kit for those that want 9009, but don’t want to shell out for a compatibility kit on top of a full set. The goal here is to keep the cost down while maintaining compatibility for most users. Adding the 9009 accent color options, increases the key count, but we felt it was important to give users options.
We tried to keep compatibility for those that like their ESC and Tab on different rows. With the sculpted kit and accent colors, that adds quite a few keys, so only the ESC gets the accent color and not tab.
Finally, we included convex keys in all the mod and accent colors. There is a 2u of each color and 2x 1u for each. The raise and lower icon keys are not convex, but those that want convex there can swap in the blank convex keys.
New molds will be made for a few keys, and I believe this will be the first GMK set with Linux caps!
The main boards targeted are 4x12: Planck/Let’s Split, and 5x12: Preonic/Nyquist. Other boards should be possible, but it doesn’t really extend to larger sizes like the xd75re. To cover that would basically mean adding a numpad and/or nav cluster which would drive the price way up. So tell us what you think about this kit. We have consulted many ortho users in the making of this kit, so it should be pretty buttoned up already, but do not hesitate to voice your opinion.
