Tracks of the Week

Track Name: The Desert Kingdom
Created by: StealthReborn–

The Desert Kingdom 1 The Desert Kingdom 2

The Desert Kingdom 3

StealthReborn—says “This is another map that’s well suited for the beginners and a very fascinating map for the advanced players. There’s a lot to see in this map, and a couple of minor surprises. You think you’re going to be going through that hoop in the air? Think again, you might just find yourself on the same road heading straight for a devastator if you’re not careful. This map is has tons of scenery, nice twists and turns to satisfy everyone.”

Track Name: Alpine Stadium
Created by: dragon_Bremen

Alpine Stadium 1 Alpine Stadium 2

Alpine Stadium 3

dragon_Bremen says “Blast up (or over!) Winding mountain roads, through dangerous caves and BLAST OFF the peak at maximum altitude and velocity! Pods are easy pickings at the base, but become harder to grab toward the top. Can you find all the shortcuts?”

Track Name: Roma
Created by: CIV_BOSS

Roma 1 Roma 2

Roma 3

CIV_BOSS says “This is a trip through ancient Rome. When you play this track you’ll have a choice of whether to focus on the track and win or just be absolutely amazed at how beautiful this map is, and probably hit a wall staring off into the scenery. You will blast off over the Pantheon through the roman city and market, around or through the coliseum, across the aqueduct and through the Circus Maximus. Have fun playing or just enjoy the beauty.

I am not playing this game until the new patch is released. I bought the game, played it an and love it. But once I see a huge improvement on the Single player career, I wont touch this game! Hope the carrer mode does not cheat in the new patch…we shall wait and see…….

2 weeks ago you said that the patch would hopefully be released last week. last week you delayed it by saying it was almost there. this week its delayed yet again with “we hope to have a solid release date next ModNation Monday.”

this endless chain of delays is quite frustrating. just make sure to not pull a blizzard and release it next year.

/end_rant

on a side note: can’t you guys release a side-patch that ONLY adresses load times so that we can at least be satisfied with that in the meantime? if not, then the patch had better be really good and BIG.

Will this patch cover the online connection issue a lot of people are having? I got it for my birthday in early June and finished career only to learn I can’t connect online because of the servers. Please please please tell me this will be fixed

+ MarioHead on July 26th, 2010 at 3:14 pm said:

As long as the patch fixes the issues with the game, I’ll gladly wait one more week for it. :D

+ Mabus51 on July 26th, 2010 at 3:16 pm said:

I think it is a shame you waited so long to release the patch. The other features in the patch could have waited until they were ready. I gave up waiting for the load times to be fixed a month ago and no longer play this game. If the patch actually exists in the future I may give it another chance but doubtful moving on to other games now. Sorry to be negative, but a little too late in my opinion.


12

+ TheAlbraskan on July 26th, 2010 at 3:16 pm said:

I’ve seriously have no problem with the load times for a while now. I think I’m more upset by the community complaining about everything than anything else.

+ MLibbey18 on July 26th, 2010 at 3:16 pm said:

Will the region lock be removed in the patch? If not, will the region lock ever be removed? If so, any rough ideas on the time scale?

@3
lol, I’ve been refreshing the blog all day waiting for the ModNation Monday. Was hoping for some good news since it got published a bit later than usual (it seems anyway).

Oh well, nothing we can do about it!

First off, thanks for posting my kart :D
Secondly, can’t wait for the update’s release date/ release!

i just wanted to say that althought the campaign is not EASY…its VERY CHALLENGING..and I LOVE IT..i was xpecting it to be normal since its a “kids game”..but UFG changed the kart game from cute and fun to awesome and challenging…i have no complains with the difficulty…at first i was like DAMN…but now im like BRING IT!..once u get a hang of the DRIFTING..and understand the weapon and shield skills..there is no stopping you! well untill they all attack you and your out of turbo..then your screwed..but thats what makes it fun..imo..i think the HARDER the BETTER – and THATS WHAT SHE SAID..lol

+ tenshin78 on July 26th, 2010 at 3:26 pm said:

Already moved to other games (Super Street Fighter IV its excellent!) not because of the “Not playing this game until fixed!” but because, Im already burning this game, Im getting to know every track and start to win more easily online (when the connection doesnt drop every minute).
So I better put it down or when the patch its released I will have nothing new to do (except download/upload content).
I think must of the people here would be more than happy to have 3 different patches in the time span than nothing.

@18

I’m just waiting for the patch for the XP Series racing with Friends!

I’ve completed all the Career races while waiting for the patch, but the haters gonna keep on hatin’!

Any news on when we might get Home rewards?

+ twooh on July 26th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

With all this “keep waiting” bs, it should read “we will have the release next monday”. Yet next monday only brings a release date. Lmao. MN team is a failure.


23

+ macling on July 26th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

Yeah, i stopped playing this game, maybe I’ll pick it up again when the patch is released, which, at the current pace should be right…. around…..never

+ moriarty1975 on July 26th, 2010 at 3:38 pm said:

If we get a release date next monday, can you include a list of changes/fixes that are in the patch in the blog post?


25

+ JordanOwens on July 26th, 2010 at 3:38 pm said:

This game is so incredible but I’ve stopped playing it a lot because the load times are so horrible for the short amount of racing that happens. I understand the logistics of why it happens but it’s still quite painful. I feel bad for the developers for taking almost a much grief for this as Slant6 did for SOCOM: Confrontation.


26

+ MadMeat001 on July 26th, 2010 at 3:40 pm said:

what the hell Sony, seriously what the hell!
why are you showing a Nintendo character, to pollute this place?
let me say one thing, i think i know that the reason that i and many other of your supporter love PlayStation because they are sick and tired of Nintendo character so please, don’t encourage those idiot, why don’t the San Diego staff delete those remodeled Nintendo character online? yes they can imitate those character but come on not to post them on a PlayStation space. please don’t do us a favor, thank you for listening

+ TriCykle on July 26th, 2010 at 3:43 pm said:

Those logistical understandings are quite useful, yes?

cant wait for the patch, i bought the game day 1 and didnt play that much cause the single player was too hard for me and online i didnt like the fact that we still cant do a xp race with friends.


32

+ Zarxce on July 26th, 2010 at 4:04 pm said:

I preordered the game but barely played through it. I think I got about 3/4ths of the way through the single player before I ragequit’d and didn’t play too much multiplayer because it was taking way too long at the time and never finding other racers.

Can’t wait for the patch to come out. Will definitely give it another go then. And if enough things are fixed, I’ll probably bug some friends to finally pick it up too.

@18 wat are u talkin about?! I found the carreer super easy idk why ppl complain.. Plz UFG tell me u guyz arent gonna put the trophies to low 250,000 change it to 80,000 n the lv 30 trophy 500,000 change it to at least 150,000

Wait, are you saying the patch will be available next Monday or you will tell us when it will be available next Monday??

Also, any word on the removal of the region lock?

Keep the updates coming :)!

+ TriCykle on July 26th, 2010 at 4:15 pm said:

@34

There’s a simple solution:

Don’t enable remixing of your creations and that will not happen. Complaining to UFG won’t solve your spilled milk issue.

+ mommymatters on July 26th, 2010 at 4:24 pm said:

@ 36 But that ruins the fun of giving your take on the character

+ harpdevil on July 26th, 2010 at 4:24 pm said:

I recently bought Modnation and loving it so far, but my creations from the demo haven’t automatically transferred over as I understand they are supposed to. Any idea what I can do to transfer my creations over?

+ wolfzero1 on July 26th, 2010 at 4:27 pm said:

It would be nice that in addition to fixing the load times, the patch could also fix the problem of random disconnects from the server, I haven’t played the game in a week because its really frustrating to try to complete a XP series & get disconnected just after completing a race.

Ok that talk is only for texting!

+ YODA798907 on July 26th, 2010 at 4:44 pm said:

You guys that complain about the single player being too hard kill me. The single player for this game is one of the best I have played in a kart racer, it requires skill and learning how and when to use your boost and weapons. Learn how to drift and stop crying about how hard it is.


42

+ fuzzyclutter on July 26th, 2010 at 4:58 pm said:

anybody ever given any thought that not only does this patch have to work correctly , it has to work correctly with everything that has already been published . a complication that not alot of games have .

Will there also be a patch to fix the issues with the PSP version?

+ BPatches701 on July 26th, 2010 at 6:42 pm said:

Russel 34 was talking about people especially a group of people who go by the name of team 649 that all download the same creation and race around a tiny track for hours to get their mod/kart on the podium and it’s getting very very bad. Please don’t look like you aren’t even looking at the game.

Too bad about the patch, i don’t care anymore, you lied too much.


48

+ Chronosv2 on July 26th, 2010 at 9:37 pm said:

The single-player is challenging, I’ll give it that, but I do find it rather frustrating that most of the unlocks require 1st place, and some of those unlocks are even EDITOR unlocks. Mod and Kart unlocks would be fine to make 1st place required, but the track editor is arguably the biggest part of the game, and having scenery objects or track features being locked out because you’re not good enough to unlock them is upsetting.

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on July 26th, 2010 at 9:49 pm said:

Great I love this game, hopefully the load times patch can come soon with a great improvement

+ SuperSpecs on July 27th, 2010 at 12:34 am said:

Il be interested to see how much of a difference the patch makes to the loading times once its out. I dont really notice them anymore to be honest but any improvement will at least shut some of the self-entitled whiners up out there.

Thanks for picking my Buggy O’ Hare Kart by the way.
