I'm Nick, aka jacksonj04, and I used to be a volunteer staff member here at ModDB. I was active on ModDB way back at the beginning, and did (at one point) actually mod. Outside gaming I have a degree in Computing and Cybernetics from the University of Lincoln, which is just as cool as it sounds.
Quite often we get mods showing off every single model they've built to try and bolster some awareness amongst the players who love the eye-candy. Of course there is nothing wrong with this, but recently a few mods and games have started posting some more technical information in their news posts.
Since Mod DB has a healthy community of developers as well as players, it might be worth considering posting up something about any clever technical stuff you've done. Smarter AI, faster visual processing, new and improved workflows and so on all can help make other developers go "ooooh".
