ModNation Racers Free DLC and Double XP Week!

Ramone Russell's Avatar + Posted by Ramone Russell on Oct 21, 2010 // Community Manager, SCEA San Diego Studios

Greetings and Happy MNR, um, Thursday everyone!

ModNation Racers: ModNation Monday

First off, as you may have already seen, the long-awaited Gopher hit the PlayStation Store yesterday. If you’re ready to hit the track with the flavor of the links, check him out. The Gopher Mod comes with a Golf Hat, Gopher Nose, and a Sweater Vest, and his Kart includes the Golf Kart Body and Golf Kart Seat.

Free MNR Stunt Parts Pack for two weeks!

As we mentioned last week, there are lots more good things coming to ModNation Racers. On October 26th, we’re going to be giving you the first taste of some track-enhancing goodness with a FREE parts pack. The Stunt Pack is the first of more Packs to come, and each one features a group of new parts to make the already amazing tracks out there even better. If you’ve ever wondered how we can add to and improve upon the hundreds of thousands of amazing tracks that are already out there, these Packs are the answer, and the first one is free for TWO WEEKS!

Included in the Stunt Pack are 14 parts listed below.

Stunt Pack

Scene Props

  • Double Decker Bus
  • Interactive Truck
  • Interactive Truck Trailer Mini Ramp

Dynamic Props

  • K-Wrecks
  • Wide Stunt Ramp
  • Thin Stunt Ramp
  • Thin Rail Stunt Ramp
  • Tilting Platform
  • Flaming Skull Ring
  • Flaming Pendulum Chopper

Track Props

  • Stunt Trailer
  • Tire Stack
  • Glass Plate
  • Flaming Fence

DoubleDecker

New bus prop.

StuntRamp

A long ramp for all the creators out there who like catching some serious air.

TiltingPlatform

This platform can be used in a variety of ways to help enhance your track creations.

Modzilla

A new dynamic prop for all you devastator lovers out there. Beware!!!!

We can’t wait to see what you can do with these new parts. Everyone at UFG and SCEA San Diego would like to thank you all for supporting MNR since its launch in May. Thanks again for sticking with us through the long haul.

MNR Double XP Week

Finally, while we’re taking care of our dedicated community, let’s keep piling it on. We’re going to be having another Double XP week! That’s right – From Tuesday, October 26th through Monday, November 1st, put the pedal to the metal and double your rewards. See you on the track!

MNR Halloween themed creations contest

Submit your original Halloween themed Karts, Mods, and Tracks here for a chance to win a free Mod and Kart. The winner’s creations will be showcased in November’s first ModNation Monday blog.

MNR Creations of the Week

Amazing creations in ModNation get shared every day and we are playing a ton of them. If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track to be a future “creation” of the week be sure to visit up on the official ModNation Community site and who knows? You might see your handy work on the PlayStation.Blog.

Mod of the Week

Mod Name: Badimo
Creator: Stitchless

Badimo

If there is life on other planets and they are cage fighters, this guy is one of them. The lifeless black eyes and spiraling of razor wire make it pretty clear that he’s not to be messed with. If you download him, I suggest that you don’t lose. I don’t think he’ll like it….

Kart of the Week

Kart Name: Meltdown
Creator: Icandy55

Meltdown

Apparently demons can be gangsta rappers. One look at this Kart, and you’ll understand why. From the anguished airbrushed face on the hood front to the beating heart engine in the back, this ride is all freaky. Throw in that wood grain finish for a touch of class, and you’ve got a whip that’s fit for even the most discerning demonic taste.

Track of the Week

If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to MNR’s YouTube channel by emailing ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com and we will include them in the blog if your track is showcased.

Track Name: Alphorma
Created by: Adie23

Alphorma

Alphorma 2 Alphorma 3

Adie23 says “This once peaceful coastal city is now home to jumps, traps, tight turns and barrels of doom”

This track isn’t hyper-populated with props all over the place and it isn’t super long, and I think those are the reasons it shines. There are turns that have to be carefully negotiated, there are boost pads that may or may not be worth going for (Adie23 was sneaky about that in a couple of spots), and there’s enough air, drift opportunities, and pods to keep you boosting and competitive in some quick and dirty races.

Hot Lap Roster for this week

Continuing with the trend we started weeks ago this weeks Hot Lap roster features all new community created tracks.

Monday: Gobi Desert, by C_Smith
Tuesday: Spring Water Falls, by Yika
Wednesday: Twin Mountain Rally v2, by blizzardmx-5
Thursday: Kingdom Of The 4th Dragon, by Generic_Oval
Friday: Marketcrash, by Flamestalker-NL
Saturday: Mystery Track
Sunday: Mystery Track

More news next week, until then… see you in the ModSpot!

This is awesome! Can’t wait to put these new pieces to use. Still plan on adding additional track themes as well? Also I hear there is a patch being pushed out today – any details on what’s in it? I’m still hoping for a bug fix/enhancements patch for the track editor as well at some point.

Thanks for giving track designers new stuff to work with!

Looks like I should go and buy my own copy for the Double XP week. You guys are really keeping this game going, and I need to get back into it with a copy of my own.

The tilting platform and T-Wrecks are going to be great to add some new, unique flavor to all the track creations out there… I can’t wait to get my hands on them myself. It’s good to know that this is only the ‘first’ pack of many, as well. So glad they listened to us on the Track DLC. This stuff makes it worth the wait.

Is the Double XP for winning races like in Race Series and single races, or is it just for Create XP like last time?

Russel, why do you guys keep running Kingdom of the 4th Dragon in Hotlap? Not only is the track beyond atrocious, but this is like the third time it’s been run during a week’s line up. Can we get some new tracks in there, please?

There was double XP for racing last time. All I did the whole double xp week last time was racing, and believe me I was getting double xp from the races.

Track DLC/Double XP sounds awesome!

Btw Russell when are Boardwalk, Flaming Jumps, and Drift Paradise coming back to the XP Series? Some of us posted new playlists with UFG tracks a while back on the forums (You posted the thread asking for some) and they still haven’t been put into the series yet. A lot of the XP racers would really appreciate it. And perhaps some user-made tracks could be put in the series in the future also.

Looks like last week of October is gonna be awesome for MnR. Please keep us giving more stuff for the game ’cause the game needs more and more as we do.

One question Ramone, I guess we are still having stuff for mods and karts in the future weeks, after Gopher DLC, what’s next in the store? are you going to add some new guys for the game? like vampy, princess, and those guys with new stuff for mods and kart bodies??

Thankx

@23 grey_jeep

I guess that dinosaur think will spit fire

@24 NEJI64

mm… not necessary the top 15 tracks, ’cause I don’t want to race a series in that endless circle 100,000 drift points track that is the most downloaded onw, so boring… and some other tracks that are simple comparing them to other ones we have saw in hot laps, but that have more downloads…

the selection has to be very accurate to add a users track in XP series, I will suggest instead a pack of 10 new tracks for UFG

How much will the expansion cost after the two weeks, do you know? I might buy it if it’s under $5.

Good, good. This is what the game REALLY needs. Currently, there isn’t enough variation between track levels. More tools and items are desperately needed…would be cool if we could create our own, kinda like in LBP.

^^ All this comes from an original MIDNIGHT Launch Supporter for ModNation Racers. Keep up the good work, United Front Games! :D

I know there was a patch released to balance out the difficulty, but could you guys try it again. I’ve been trapped in the same race for weeks now even since the patch. It doesn’t seem to matter how far ahead I get. By the end of the race I’m always out of place.

UFG, Ramone, whoever, look. I love the heck out of this game. I’ve always loved karting games, and I’ve always loved games with extreme customization. You guys are like…my heroes for making this fantastic game, and I appreciate all the hard work you put into this… But could you please, PLEASE, for the love of mankind and all that is holy, fix the text search option? That 1.05 patch hardly did squat. It’s gone from never working to only working for a few seconds every few minutes. I want to download the tracks of the week you show so bad, but I can’t, because the text search will not work properly, which is becoming increasingly frustrating. I am not a good track-creator, so I’d really like for the text search to actually work when looking for good tracks making use of these new track props. =\

+ Nunchuckles on October 22nd, 2010 at 8:58 am said:

Pretty annoying to see the icon on the bottom right of the TV showing the Move controller not being seen by the Eye. All they had to do was sit back a little bit so the Eye could get a good view of the Move controller. Also, the Move controller would blink red sometimes because it wasn’t being detected by the Eye. But about the game, I saw a Quick Look of it at Giant Bomb, and it’s still not the game that I’ve been waiting for. I bought 4 Move controllers and one navigation controller hoping for a good hardcore game like Sorcery. But it seems that’s the only game out there that’s going to satisfy the actual game category with motion controls. Man, I really do regret buying that many controllers. $230 for poppy casual games.

I don’t think that the IA in this game is hard at all, before the patch with the new “casual” level for the IA, i’ve already passed and unlocked everything back then… some races are hard but not for complaining about it, can’t even imagine how easy is now with the “casual” level for the IA. I really don’t get it why they are still guys complaining about it. I know not everybody is a good racer and each one has their own skills but I really thing this game is not hard at all in single campaign.
