Ramone Russell's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist & Game Designer, San Diego Studio

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

ModNation Racers: ModNation Monday

The Buddy System

There’s a lot to be said for having a friend, and having a friend by your side on exciting intergalactic adventure after exciting intergalactic adventure has GOT to be something special. That’s exactly what next week’s Mods have in each other. That’s right, folks – The Ratchet and Clank Mods will be on the PlayStation Store next Tuesday, November 9th. Get ‘em and race ‘em, and you will be made of win.

Kratos Tomorrow!

Don’t forget that Kratos and his Kart hit the PlayStation Store tomorrow, November 2nd!

Stunt Pack is Still Free!

It’s been a week since we released the Stunt Pack for free, folks, and there are already some pretty amazing tracks out there. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, it will be free for one more week. After Tuesday, November 9th, you’ll have to buy it, so go get it now and start making some killer tracks! Here are a few of the tastier tracks that feature parts for the Stunt Pack during the first week o’ free:

ModNation Racers - Stunt Pack

Track: Stunt Track
Created By: ripper 171
This is a nice short track with lots of accurate line challenges. I really enjoy running Time Trials on this one.

Track: The Amazing Stunt Arena
Created By: OveReAction
Another fun track for Time Trial runs, this one has one of the more frustrating tilting platform sections I’ve seen. It’s infuriating to fail that section, but when you hit it just right and glide through unscathed…OH, what a feeling!

Track: Market Place Racers
Created By: Natedawg18
This is a nice track to race on, with multiple alternate paths and just enough boost pads, drift opportunities, and air to keep things interesting and competitive. There’s some precision required to really crush it on this one, but it’s also ”loose” enough for just about anyone to jump into and have a blast.

MNR Halloween themed creations contest winners!
Contest winners will be notified via their PSN accounts.

Mod Name: Dalmat (wolfman)
Creator: Elnath10

ModNation Racers - Wolfman

This is one of the cooler Mods around, with abs only slightly less ripped than my own. Excellent use of hair props, and the torn up shorts are perfect.

Kart Name: Candy Corn Kart
Creator: Miss_Broccoli

ModNation Racers - Candy Corn Kart

This Kart has the benefit of being super Halloween-y and fun without being creepy at all. With that body style and the smooth light purple color, I would rock this Kart any day of the year. Plus, who doesn’t like candy corn?

Track Name: P&B Pumpkin Patch
Created by: A PH1LThy31 & CIV_BOSS Collaboration

ModNation Racers - P&B

ModNation Racers - P&B 2 ModNation Racers - P&B 3

CIV_BOSS says “What better for Halloween than a pumpkin patch! This is the second track PH1LThy31 and I have done together. Race Through P&B farms where you will see frightening things! Giant pumpkins throwing barrels. Giant spiders (also throwing barrels) :Wink: Race through the store front and into the actual pumpkin patch itself. Find the fastest way around the silos but watch out for the giant spiders. You can make the spiders spit barrels at the other racers with the trigger pads. Find your way over and under irrigation pipes. Many routes and secrets make this track a challenge to master but fun for even the.

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: The Wicked Witch of the South
Creator: race2winnet

ModNation Racers - WWOTS

She’s green, she’s got a pointy chin to match her pointy hat, and she’s got a big black wart on her big pointy nose. I don’t know what there is to love about this Mod, but I love it.

Kart of the Week

Kart Name: Pumpkin Sportscar
Creator: DamnBoxes

ModNation Racers - Pumpkin Sportscars

The rounded wheel wells on the concept body are PERFECT for this Kart. The paint job is clean and simple, which is why it works so well. Add in the appropriately colored engine and that little sprig of grass in the middle of the windshield, and you’ve got a smooth, smooth, Halloween ride.

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: Warp Drive
Created by: Laidbackcat

Warp Drive

Warp Drive 2 Warp Drive 3

The bluish hue of this track gives it a really cool sci-fi feel. There are some nice elevated strips of track with curves in them that make for some pretty intense racing moments. It was an awesome feeling to actually sideswipe an opponent off the track on one of those tight turns. There are a couple of confusing sections in this track, so try to get a few practice runs in before you compete here.

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: Warp Drive, by Laidbackcat

November 1st, 4:32 pm

i love the support behind this game.

its what many developers forget to-do

MarioGamer159 said:

November 1st, 4:32 pm

Good to see Ratchet and Clank come out next Tuesday. Not sure if I’ll be using them much though, seeing as how I’ll be missing out on the extra Create XP you get from racing your own creations. I’ve still got a long way to go reach level 30 despite being at level 29.

Spinout209 said:

November 1st, 4:49 pm

We should have a Triple XP week cause the double XP week still makes it take forever to hit level 30

Elnath10 said:

November 1st, 4:50 pm

yaaaaaaaay!! I won the contest :D My mod is here!! Finally I’m gonna cry T.T lol

Great!, thanks Ramone :), and yeah that Warp Drive looks amazing

So.. Kratos tomorrow… Ratchet & Clank next week.. what’s coming up next after them? :o

Ratchet & Clank: BOUT TIME!!!

Definite Day 1 Purchase. That will complete my Pre-Order Mod Set & make me a very happy ModNation Community Member. I think I speak for most when I say we are finally getting what we wanted from Day 1. It may have taken nearly 6 months, but it’s finally happening.

I got Kratos & Mouse Trap with my game. I bought Nathan Drake, Cowboy, Lil Tinker, & Gopher.

Elnath10 said:

November 1st, 5:23 pm

    There was a delay in the pack for EU when everything is sorted out and the pack is released. Rest assured it will be free for two weeks.

ComposerRyan said:

November 1st, 6:26 pm

Wow, that track looks AMAZING! :D Also, I may just download that Kratos mod tomorrow. I have been playing God of War III quite often lately. And I’m glad they extended the stunt pack as well, the week went by so fast!!!

OveReAction said:

November 1st, 6:32 pm

Sorry for fail section of my track there heheh. I was excited to see all stunt props and tested them all in a track and i decided to publish it though to spread the words. lol

DeadCell34 said:

November 1st, 6:56 pm

Hey guys, I just got finished with an amazing new mod! It took 320 stickers (exactly) and 10 hours to make. Who is it you may ask?

I made a TIR Contestant from Dead Rising 2. He looks almost identical to the guys from DR2 (except he’s mod sized ofcourse lol). Check him out!

On topic: Some nice mods there. And that warp drive track looks awesome, I may download it tonight.

Dragon-Ultra said:

November 1st, 7:10 pm

2 PSN accounts log in at once to play online split-screen?
PLEASE ANSWER! It’s just YES or NO.

Dragon-Ultra said:

November 1st, 7:11 pm

Oh! Yeah~ On-Topic: Warp Drive is an AWESOME track!
I recommend all of you to download it! It is EPiC!!

The Dalmat(Wolfman) Mod is also awesome!

Harro500 said:

fuzzyclutter said:

OveReAction said:

November 2nd, 1:58 am

@Dragon-Ultra

If you have 2 PS3s, you can do that as well.

Scar_HeadFaced said:

November 2nd, 6:03 am

I’m not sure you noticed the other comments Mr. Russell as you seem to be answering the more favourable posts but….

WHEN WILL EUROPE GET THE STUNT PACK AND WILL IT BE FREE TO US ALSO?

A simple “i’ll let you know” would be nice as Europe is a rather big place and has a population of curious MNR fans.Me being one of them.

MNR is the best game on PS3….FACT

tmerino said:

November 2nd, 6:17 am

GT5? Date?

Bomb_A_Nation said:

November 2nd, 6:19 am

i cant wait until this game is a greatest hits title, them i might think of buying it.

hardvibes said:

November 2nd, 6:47 am

We don’t care about MNR!! Just tell us that GT5 won’t come out this year. Beause that’s the truth right? That’s why Sony is not giving any SOLID info?….
Shame on you, it was supposed to come out TODAY in the US.

FormerPSfan said:

November 2nd, 9:40 am

So when is SONY gonna man up & admit that GT5 doesn’t exist? more than a little bitter irony this pops up the day before the latest failed release date.

Elnath10 said:

November 2nd, 4:27 pm

ey guys.. go complain for gran turismo 5 in gt5 blog section, not here… here is about mnr, for christ’s sake…

ehm Ramone, one question.. what’s the price of the Halloween contest anyway?… I mean.. the original vamp mod couldn’t be ’cause it even was free for a week…

Silvan24 said:

November 2nd, 8:07 pm

SergioChileno said:

November 3rd, 7:12 am

The new Stunt Pack props is a great addition to the game. Hopefully there is more DLC in the future to create better and funnier tracks.

I also have made my track dedicated to the new DLC: “STUNT PACK TEST” track, very funny especially in races, try it if you like.

Modnation is a great game for racers and creators.
