ModNation Monday: Title Update 1.02 Releases August 4th, Brings Improvements

ModNation_Mondays

This Wednesday, August 4th at 2:00am (Pacific Time), the ModNation Racers Title Update 1.02 goes live improving many of the issues the community has been concerned about. On behalf of UFG, we want to thank everyone for supporting ModNation and being patient as we’ve worked hard to make it the best experience possible. If you didn’t see the patch details on the IGN last Friday, here is a run down:

Update: Title Update 1.02 for ModNation Racers unfortunately introduced an issue that affects online XP Races and XP Series. We’ve identified the cause and are quickly working on a solution to resolve the issue. We intend on updating the ModNation Community on the release of this fix as soon as possible.

Load Time Improvements
While there are still loads, you will see decreases in load times throughout the game.

New “Casual” Difficulty Mode
We’ve added a “casual” difficulty setting in the options screen.

Challenge friends in XP Series
We’ve added the ability to invite your friends to XP Races & Series.

No more “Hot Lap” Cheaters
We fixed a bug that allowed players to cut the track and post unbeatable times in Hot Lap.

Get into Online Races Quicker
Along with improved load times, we’ve removed the online game room from the ModSpot so you can get into the race faster.

Improved Server Stability
We’ve addressed issues to improve intermittent disconnects that players were experiencing.

Three Challenges now more attainable
We wanted to provide you challenges, but didn’t want to sacrifice fun. We found 3 challenges that proved extremely difficult and changed the conditions to complete them. This includes:

  • Devastator takedown on Wild Run
  • Devastator takedown on Modobahn
  • Sideswipe 3 opponents on the cliff side on Fracture

The Tin Bucket Unlocked!
Finally this is an item is unlocked and available to everyone by default.

Collector Card Improvement
Now see all player creations in their entirety.

Improvements to ModNation Racers don’t stop here, we are still constantly listening to the community and are committed to making ModNation Racers one of the most enjoyable experiences you’ll have on your PS3.

New features on Community.ModNation.com

We added features to the Community site Community.ModNation.com to make the experience better too, including:

Race Logs
Check out your series and XP race stats here.

See your Favorites
Now view your favorite creators as well as others’ favorite creators.

Search for Friends
Search for other players using the new icon next to login.

Rep Check
Check out you reputation under each creation type.

I am so glad to see all of the updates. But I kind of liked the online game room.. gives people a chance to see your creations… I am happy they decided to fix the hot lap bug… although I did get the hot lap trophy, it made it impossible to beat those times.

Were the load time improvements done with additional hard drive cacheing? I’m only curious because I want to know if I’ll get even more improved load times with an ssd drive in my ps3 rather than the standard hard drive.

Thanks for getting out the patch, I actually haven’t removed the shrink wrap on my game yet because of all of the load time complaints.

Ramone Russell and UFG Thank you for making such a wonderful game.ive had so much fun playing since the launch. The load times were never really a big deal, but im glad all of the issues are being addressed with the patch,but There should be an option to choose the A.I or at least make to wear it choose other mods other than UFGs in a race when you are doing split screen o quick race etc. It would be cool to see our creations in a race. Because the only time you get to see them is when you play as them or when other play as them. Just a suggestion

Now THAT is supporting your release. For those complaining, you should come try White Knight Chronicles some time. God knows there are plenty of problems with it and Level 5 hasn’t done jack. The “Announcements” hasn’t changed from the “server maintenance” message that was put up day 1, and I get the feeling they aren’t even doing that maintenance anymore.

+ FeistFan on August 2nd, 2010 at 10:49 am said:

I’m really looking forward to this patch. The load times don’t annoy me quite as much as the struggle to finish career mode — call me lame if you want, but I need that easy mode. And my kids need it more than I do — asking a 10-year-old to collect parts by playing through at that crazy difficulty level is just too much. Hopefully this will make the game more accessible to a wider audience (and I got MOST of the challenges done on “hard” mode!).

I’d love to see more of that DLC coming out — I wanted the mouse and the cheese car!

I hope there’s some “time savers pack” to download (yeah, for a fee) at some point that unlocks everything, perhaps even including some of the DLC. My kids are eager to CREATE even more than they’re eager to race. My six-year-old would spend hours creating karts and mods, even though she can’t drive down a straightaway without bouncing off the sides of the track — she’s having a blast, anyway!

Hey Russell, I just have a quick question. I have both the PS3 and PSP versions of Modnation and was told that Im supposed to get a special Mod character because I have both versions. Is this correct? Because when I look in my premium mod section, theres nothing that I don’t already have. Thanks for the help, and good to see the patch is coming Wednesday, cant wait! :)

Aw man, i entered the code, it was like “Nathan Drake ModNation Racers!” I said “yes! i got it!” hit download “an error has occured” /sadface.

Any chance that maybe when these kind of things are done in the future the codes given out can be for multiple downloads instead of just one?

i still dont understand what you mean about “GAME ROOM”..you mean the place where you can see all the other riders anc chat alil b4 the race starts..if so..thats not a good idea..those people that complain about the loading times are ruining special features in the game..and are VERY UNPATIENT..i for one had NO PROBLEMS with the load times..i mean who ever thinks that a game with 6 or more CUSTOMIZED RIDERS and a COSTUMIZED TRACK can load in less then 30 secs is CRAZY >:/

I’m so stupid. I thought the Nathan Drake codes were Ratchet and Clank codes so I ignored it for a min and realized that it wasn’t what I thought. Now it’s all taken. :(

Oh well, this update made my day. I wish there’s more codes.

I hope I can get the DLC vouchers, I am only missing Ratchet and Clank. As for the update it sounds nice but the whole load time cut sounds fishy. If taking the online room away from modspot makes is shorter in load, does that mean we don’t get to see anyone in the modspot anymore? Secondly, when will you give the codes out to these commentators?
