Ahoy. The name is Mikom. I do 3D modeling, rendering and just general design. I'm a person who over past few years has taken a great interest in formulating ideas in 3D space. Ideas are my trade in many ways yet I also lean towards the practical. I have worked on several mods and game projects though modeling for games is not my first area of expertise. Here on ModDB/IndieDB I keep an eye on the Humor Satire Parody group, I follow the modding community and watch game productions that have peaked my interest. Feel free to go through my blogs or image gallery if you want to get a glimpse of what I do. As always, have a nice day!

I started upgrading my PC to make it work better. It had started to start up really slowly, windows took forever to load folders and performance in my favorite games wasn't perfect either.
So now I'm upgrading my PC a little. I've just put in a new 500GB SSD in my computer, reinstalled Windows on it and... wow. This thing boots faster than my LCD screen turns on. This means I now need to write in my password in the dark (when I hear the windows sound after start-up). If I'm fast enough, it even logs in before my screen finally turns on. lol
After that I installed the latest drivers for my graphics card and bloody hell; all of a sudden I can run Far Cry 3 at max settings (at 1080p) with better performance than I had before. That just shows you, always have the latest drivers installed.
I also used a professional color calibration tool to improve the way I view images on my screen. Wow, what a difference in clarity there is all of a sudden. The colors all look so much more natural now. No matter what you're looking at. I highly recommend trying this out if you know someone with such a tool.
After that however, the upgrading of my PC took a turn for the worse when my 2TB harddrive started failing. Strange noises and read errors made me panic and I ordered another 500 GB SSD to use in my PC. It arrived the very next day and is now sitting comfortably in my PC providing me with a combined 1TB of SSD Space.
This does mean though that my two SSDs now have a combined value of almost half what my PC originally cost. As a result, any further upgrades may have to wait.
In other news, I did a video review of a game I've been playing for a few weeks now called PlanetSide 2:
That's about it. Have a nice day!
