Welcome to my profile, brothers. I'm the man behind the usernames of Black Bee One, Snowflake_NFAD, etc.

Background

Born as an Indonesian. Confident in English language. A student with a wide range of experience in both academy and gaming. I can be found in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I'm currently active as one of the few skin modders for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon in the PC version.

Ace Combat Series

My experience in Ace Combat series started with Ace Combat 5. After Ace Combat 5, I traced the series and found the other games. I played Air Combat, Ace Combat 2, and Ace Combat 3 JP version in the PS1. Of course, after the experience with Ace Combat 5, I completed the legendary trilogy in PS2. I followed up with the PSP games Ace Combat X and Ace Combat X2. I moved on to the 3DS on the sole purpose of playing Ace Combat 3D. Unfortunately for myself, due to the lack of funds, Ace Combat 6 and Ace Combat Infinity are not yet played. I try keep myself updated on the series, now gathering funds with a hope of acquiring PS4 for Ace Combat 7. To keep my brain occupied, following the discovery of modding for Ace Combat Assault Horizon in the PC version, I joined the fray and became a modder myself. Aided by the experience of modding HAWX and HAWX 2, I've made several skins. At the current period, I'm currently working with an Ace Combat fanfic team as a writer and aircraft skin creator, free of charge.

Ace Combat, THE iDOLM@STER, and Love Live!

I started with THE iDOLM@STER DLC seen in Ace Combat 6. I was wondering what is THE iDOLM@STER. I decided to research and found that the series already has an anime. After finishing the anime, I decided to join the fandom, living in two worlds. Soon after that, I discovered a potential rival to iDOLM@STER's fame : Love Live! School Idol Project. Same as the first experience, I decided to research in deep. I found out that both are good in their own ways. Although the fans of THE iDOLM@STER seem to think that the other is inferior. It's expected since iM@S came earlier. But still, it makes the fans look like a-holes. I live in three conflicting worlds that don't seem to accept each other. Ace Combat with the elitist military fans that can't accept "invasion" from iDOLM@STER that happens to belong to Bandai Namco as well. THE iDOLM@STER world and the "we came first, we are better" types of fans against Love Live!

I seem to have a tendency to live in conflicting fandoms. It's almost fun watching the pointless wars.

Modding Activities

I do skin mods mainly for 4 games : HAWX, HAWX 2, Vector Thrust, and Ace Combat Assault Horizon. Modding for the first three are quite easy since it can be done without requiring a special tool aside from the Photoshop used to edit the skins. ACAH on the other hand, requires a tool called Texmod. Other than that, the modding activities are mostly the same, done in Photoshop. I continue to improve my work results with new tricks I discover in Photoshop. Although I did say that I modded for HAWX, HAWX 2, and Vector Thrust, I've stopped completely at those. Now I'm fully focused to do ACAH mods and the upcoming mod Open Horizon.
