ModNation Monday: UFG is Listening

William Ho's Avatar + Posted by William Ho on Jun 14, 2010 // Game Designer, UFG

Hi, it’s William Ho here for the Pre-E3 ModNation Monday post. I’m excited to give you some updates about ModNation Racers and what’s been cookin’ at United Front Games.

I can’t believe it’s been a year since we announced ModNation on stage at E3, now it’s out in the world! It’s been exciting to see the massive amounts of Racing, Creating, and Sharing going on. Our dev team couldn’t be happier to see our supporters enjoying the product of two and a half years of love and labor. We enjoy playing ModNation Racers as much as you do.

Now while there a lot of people that love the game, we know there are some issues that are affecting the fun factor of ModNation, and we just want to say-

United Front Games is with you for the long haul.

I’m always asked, “what are you guys up to now?” The answer is always the same: job number one is actively monitoring and supporting the ModNation community.

We are amazed by your published creations every day. We’re enjoying online races with you. We read your forum postings and your tweets. We discuss all of your suggestions, no matter how big or small. We watch. We play. We listen.

We are working on multiple fronts to make your ModNation Racers experience even more fun. You’ve already seen some improvements in our online racing. Our friends at Sony San Diego Studio officially launched community.modnation.com so you can stay connected to the ModNation community from just about anywhere. And there’s much more to come.

With that said, I have something exciting stats to share with you. The ModNation community has exceeded the 500,000 creation mark! We worked hard to build the most accessible, freest, and deepest sandbox for you to play in. With a half million creations and counting, I think we achieved that goal. Here’s just a few of the half million awesome creations created by the ModNation community:

ModNation Racers - Glass-eye Phil

Mod: Glass-eye Phil, Creator: Reavyn1

ModNation Racers -Glass Eye Television Repair

Kart: Glass Eye Television Repair, Creator: Reavyn1

ModNation Racers - Modcoaster ModNation Racers - Modcoaster 2

Track: Modcoaster, Creator Name: hellstorm0157

Also, you’ve played more than 1,000,000 ONLINE RACES. That’s an amazing milestone for a community that’s only a few weeks young.

We can’t thank our fans enough for your support. We’ve appreciated your enthusiasm since we revealed ModNation Racers at E3 one year ago. We’re thrilled with all of the e-mails, forum postings, tweets, and fan sites, so keep ’em coming! We are dedicated to make the best possible Race, Create, Share experience possible and know we’re working hard on some rock-solid upgrades to ModNation Racers.

Look out for more information after E3, you’ll hear about it first on the PlayStation.Blog!

William, a little late here with my two bits, but one major thing I would love to see in an update, besides the typical problem fixes, is some sort of Battle Mode. Possibly a different game mode using tracks that are more like maps. At the very least allow the creators to make a track which has no start or finish and allow us to control the game setup, ie scoring, timer, and such. If the creator labels the track as a Battle track then anyone joining the “race” would know to be ready for a different type of game.

I have so much fun driving around in the modspot jumping all over that spinning prop and running into people that I wish you had given us boost and weapons for the modspot. Thats all I have to say, thanks for listening to all of us.

Right then… from what I have played with the single player onoline and career has been very very good! :)… In fact excellent!

However, your split screen game is sh*te!!!… me and my friends can never link up… some times spending hours attempting… currently the only way i have seen is for 1 to host a split screen online game and then the others to do join split screen online game… then after choosing karts and mods you select prefere friends and then search?… Well this just doesn’t work!!!…

Why can’t you build in the option where if you get an inivte to a game you can join as a split screen mode???… This would just resolve the issues!…

Please let me know what you are doing about it… as we have many frieds who all want to play with there partners!

Thanks UFG! I love this game! Playing online with people is a thrill.

Will we see additional DLC AI campaigns with new UFG stamped tracks (w/unlockable rewards)?

3 weeks ago they said they fixed the server so you didn’t get booted so much.Then can you explain to me why everytime i finish an xp race.I get disconnected from race server.And i loose my win streak totals and get no xp for winning.
If it is fixed why doe’sthis still happen more often than not.This game is a 10 star game.When you can play it.But only about 5 stars because of the server. Can we expect this to be fixed soon? please
