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!

Just a matter of adding polygons until it's finished. ;-)

Admiral_Nemo @ Helios Star Cruiser w.i.p. 2

Not really, I wanted to build something like the Vortexe I made earlier and the Athena Star Cruiser with the addition of a warp-ring.

The rocket engines just ended up looking like those of the n1 starfighter after I added the closed air-intakes. (they're open on the previous pic) As for the ramjet pylons, they were originally facing forward as antennae, which looked silly so I turned the whole thing around and got this. =)

Admiral_Nemo @ Site simplification

Well a couple of things could probably be removed from the top bar for profiles.

The Summary link seems a bit redundant since you can just click on the much larger profile name.

The Comments link could be removed for simplification reasons since that one can still be found under Statistics.

One thing I'd like to see, as demonstrated on the second concept image I posted, is larger images in the image gallery, same for videos. Kind of how it was on Desura.

Maybe make the gallery thumbnail-strip on summary page of mods/games and members bigger as well.
Just so people can show off their media better.

Oh by the way... while I stand by my media library idea I would be the first to admit that my original concept looks horribly out-dated.

Admiral_Nemo @ Site simplification

I think making the assumption that people get confused by more features may not be entirely accurate.
It may seem like a lot of large websites are simplifying their service nowadays but usually that means putting a lot of thought and effort into designing a layout and user interface that is easier to understand yet doesn't take away functionality.

Working on the user interface of their services has led to a simpler page layout with more complex scripts.
A button may no longer just be a link to another page but expand an entirely new section of the page that you're already on.
That type of simplification is all about analyzing and prioritizing what features users use the most and what needs to be accessible first.

But you have to design features for your audience, not the masses.

If you look at DeviantArt, they have made sure that their "Submit" button is pretty much everywhere to be found, in galleries, groups and now at the top of the page. This makes it extremely clear how to upload a file.

ModDB could do a similar thing where you have an Add Media button next to the search bar at the top of each page.
This would expand a menu with "Mod" "News" "Image" "Video" etc. and after selecting what you want to upload it will take you to the standard upload page. This page would need the additional option of selecting where to upload a file. To your profile, a game page or a group.
Perhaps several places at once (the media library idea would come in handy here).
Just an idea.

Admiral_Nemo @ Site simplification

I think merging news/features and addons/downloads into one system is a good idea.
Merging videos and images on the other hand, not so much. Like ElfFriend said, this would probably make things harder to find and prioritizing videos over images really makes no sense.

Instead I think maybe a bit of a page layout overhaul of the image "gallery" that already exists would be a good idea. Adding a profile-specific search function and possibly a larger miniature list with an optional slideshow for easier browsing would also be a good idea.

But keep images and video separate.

I also suggested a media library to streamline uploading and re-submitting files across the various groups and profiles of the site a few years ago that I still think would improve the usability of the site. Media.moddb.com

It did end up looking a bit like that yeah. You should have seen the earlier version of the design though with the TOS style saucer, that one was really trekky.

Admiral_Nemo @ CryENGINE joins VR bandwagon

Exited about VR? While VR has been the "new big thing" for the past two years it's still far too early to tell for most people. Last time I walked into the store, I didn't see any VR headsets on the shelves.

The idea is interesting enough but the only thing that really excites me is that maybe when I'm an old man I will enjoy the company of countless topless supermodels while lying on my deathbed in a personal holodeck.
