Ramone Russell's Avatar + Posted by Ramone Russell on Oct 25, 2010 // Community Manager, SCEA San Diego Studios

Greetings and Happy MNR Monday everyone. Ramone Russell here with another ModNation Monday update!

Kratos Mod and Kart coming next week!

ModNation Racers: Kratos Kart

Previously only available via special pre-order offers! Next week, the Kratos Mod and Kart will finally be available. They can be purchased separately or as a bundle from the PSN.

Don’t Forget: Double XP

Double XP week starts on Tuesday! Also, in celebration of Halloween, the Vampy Mod will be free for a week starting October 26th.

We also told you about Parts Packs last week. Remember that the Stunt Pack is FREE FOR TWO WEEKS from October 26th through November 9th.

ModNation 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.

ModNation 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 handiwork on the PlayStation.Blog.

Mod of the Week

Mod Name: Royal Racer
Creator: Icandy55

ModNation Racers: Royal Racer ModNation Racers: Royal Racer 2

Decked in flames from head to toe, this Mod looks ready to bring some heat to any track the Kart is on. The color scheme is simple, and the decals are detailed but subtle. The Royal Racing team definitely has the look. Now, if there were only a matching Kart….

Kart of the Week

Kart Name: Royal Racer
Creator: Icandy55

ModNation Racers: Royal Kart ModNation Racers: Royal Kart 2

The perfect complement to this week’s Mod of the Week, the Royal Racer Kart carries over the same classy design and simple but effective color scheme as its Mod counterpart. Unfortunately, using both the Royal Racer Mod and kart didn’t improve my skills, but MAN I looked cool coming in last!

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: The Elephants Graveyard
Created by: Laidbackcat

ModNation Racers: Elephants Graveyard

Laidbackcat says: “Race through a track dominated by these majestic creatures!”

Laidbackcat is a true ModNation Artist. As good as his track designs are, Laidbackcat goes the extra mile and makes some of the most interesting props I’ve seen in ModNation. This track in particular features some really impressive sculpted elephants.

Track Name: Creepy Crawlie Garden
Created by: Laidbackcat

ModNation Racers: Creepy Crawlie Garden

Laidbackcat says: “These gardens have been taken over by insects and arachnids! Featuring a phenomenally large tarantula as the centerpiece attraction! Not for the squeamish…”

I’ve never been especially fond of spiders, and thanks to this track, I have a full on case of arachnophobia. That giant tarantula is amazing, but it’s a bit scary, and so is the big loop around it. In addition to my new hatred of spiders, I think I also hate water now (stupid difficult fountain shortcut!).

Track Name: Calamity Falls G.C.
Created by: Laidbackcat

ModNation Racers: Calamity Falls

Laidbackcat says: “Annoy the upper classes as you interrupt their afternoon game of golf with a race! Enjoy the tour of this majestic country club’s splendid grounds, but watch out for bunkers!”

It was just coincidence that I happened to be driving Gopher in the Golf Kart when I raced on this track for the first time, and it turned out to be the perfect combination. Much to my pleasant surprise, this track actually feels like racing on a golf course. Every time I’m actually playing golf and I get behind the wheel of a golf cart, I dream of mashing that thing all over the course and driving like a maniac. Thanks to Laidbackcat for making my dream come true. This is brilliant.

@51

Is there, but when you are making a new track, press the square to open up the props and then press L1, switching between themes, one of them is the stunt pack

@ a lot of comments regarding hot lap

Yup, eb4tiky5ef79o was indeed the best player at hot lap and without him the competition just went downhill and I didn’t enjoy nearly as much playing hot lap as I did a few monhts after the launch. And to be fair I’ve a big chunck of pics on my PC from different days when I beat eb4′s time and I’ve beaten almost every one of his earlier god-like WRs on UFG tracks but still heck yes that guy was the best at MNR.
