Holiday Pack Reminder

Since we’re in the holiday spirit, don’t forget about the Holiday Props Pack to give your Track creations some festive spirit.

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.

With the release of all the new parts packs, we want to see your tracks with those new props in them.

Mod of the Week

Mod Name: Kratos Sackboy
Creator: Toasterscribble

ModNation Racers PS3: Kratos Sackboy

Jason Coker says: This is a sweet tribute to the man in chains. He’s got that Sackboy texture, but with the Kratos attitude. Still, at risk of insulting a guy with the power of the Gods, he sure is cute.

Kart of the Week

Kart Name: Wide Ride
Creator: FuzzyEdges

ModNation Racers PS3: Wide Ride 1

ModNation Racers PS3: ModNation RacersWide Ride 2 ModNation Racers PS3: ModNation RacersWide Ride 3

Jason Coker says: Flashy without being over the top. That’s a tough balance to maintain, but this Kart does it well. The detail is there, but it’s not all over the place, which adds a lot of class to the old school body. Hey FuzzyEdges, can you hook up some paint on my hybrid?

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: Christmas Eve
Created by: C_Smith

ModNation Racers PS3: Christmas Eve

ModNation Racers PS3: Christmas Eve 2 ModNation Racers PS3: Christmas Eve 3

Jason Coker says: Yes, yes, yes. I love to drift, and this Track is a drifter’s paradise. Loads of snaking curves give plenty of opportunities to get some boost, and various hazards and shortcuts keep the races competitive. Well done, C Smith.

Track Name: Amusement Park I
Created by: SergioChileno

ModNation Racers PS3: Amusement Park

ModNation Racers PS3: Amusement Park 2 ModNation Racers PS3: Amusement Park 3

Jason Coker says: Here’s how I imagine a conversation between me and SergioChileno about this Track –

Me: Dude, are you kidding me?

SergioChileno: No, not kidding.

Me: Hold on – Clown pop-ups AND the K-Wrecks? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?

SergioChileno: No, not kidding. Also, I just beat you.

This track is potentially frustrating, but well worth it when you dodge this or that obstacle just right. I raced this one until my fingers went numb. Good stuff.

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: Snake City, by TheQk
Tuesday: Amusement Park I, by SergioChileno
Wednesday: Christmas Eve, by C_Smith
Thursday: Elite Game Show, by RockToonz
Friday: They Stole Our Presents!!, by StealthReborn–
Saturday: Mystery Track

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

Is there somewhere on the web that shows all of the weekly track/avatar/kart winners? Maybe something like that could be included online/in-game? Just a thought.

Now you need to make an official Playstation course that only PScharacters play in. I’ve said this on a few different blogs.
Oh, you also need a Warhawk kart or Starhawk since that’s supposed to come around soon.

+ VinxiUSA on December 13th, 2010 at 12:49 pm said:

Dear UFG, that’s great, but…two things:

1) Fix the Trophies. That’s insane to get 250.000 creation XP and 500.000 XP for the Level30 in a normal life. Please do something about it, like raising a LOT the XP gained after a race/download.

2) Cut loading times even more. We need to be able to join an online race after 2-3 minutes of loading/credits.

Thank you!

oh well thanks ramone for picking my track again… and please repair the lagg and lost of sound when the snowball launcher and carnival props with sound are together… the launchers will fail

+ HMS_Victor on December 13th, 2010 at 12:53 pm said:

Killzone and Jak and Daxter mods and karts look awesome looks awesome

Also, I agree that you seriously need to fix the trophies. 250,000 was only possible if you were one of the first people to create a mod of someone famous like Mario or Crash Bandicoot or a kart like the A-Team van. It’s not promoting creativity. It’s just telling people to make copies of already existing characters

Also, we want MORE WEAPONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

+ MusicMan05 on December 13th, 2010 at 12:53 pm said:

It would be cool if you guys could add battle mode arena similar to the one found in Crash Team Racing. I feel that it’s one thing this game is missing.

@VinxiUSA Stop crying if you aren’t creative enough for people to download your stuff just do download for download like every noob in the game is doing! or just don’t play the game and move on. They give you 100 XP for every download and before they changed that it was just 5 or 10 XP (I don’t remember) and I just needed a little more to reach the 250,000 XP before they did the patch!…. So start creating stuff and don’t be a lazy butt! and stop your whining…

WHOOT!!! I feel like having a party!! There are at least 2 new themes promised here. The Far East Theme which I personally am very excited about, and the video shows many many shots of a full-blown snow theme. Way to deliver!! Soon my newest 2 tracks will be obsolete, though….

PS: The video isn’t working well. First it plays all the audio, then it plays all the video.
PSS: I can’t believe people here are still asking for more before even congratulating the staff on their slow but steady responsiveness. The community seems to be beast with an absurdly insatiable appetite….

@VinxiUSA Thanks, dude but be careful with what you guys wish for. I was one of the people saying to drop the trophy like you’re saying now but when they did the patch, I got the platinum as soon as they did the patch I was happy yeah but then I realized I was gonna get bored of the game because the fun was reaching that almost impossible trophy with all my friends, soon after we got the platinum my friends began to leave the game and I stayed alone playing it (because I love it but like every game if you’re alone it will get boring eventually)… read 2nd part


29

+ XxT_I_K_IxX_PR on December 13th, 2010 at 1:29 pm said:

Well I left, I still have the game and I would still play it but none of my friends play it anymore because they got the platinum and the fun of the game ended. What do you prefer? To win the trophy or that they give it to you just like that? @VinxiUSA Maybe this won’t happen to you but this happened to a lot of people… So right now I think the trophy couldn’t be easier. Just create stuff and tell people to check your stuff and if they’re good they will download them. Just do your best =) Of course there will always be buttholes who will insult you and maybe give you a 1 star rating but there are the people who tell you “dude, your stuff is awesome!” (Every time someone said that I was so effing proud lol) I would like to play this game again Ima try to get on on the weekend lol I miss MNR and again congrats on the nominee United Front games and again MNR is my #1 racing game =)

Well, well, well… I’ve been HIGHLY critical of the lack of decent DLC before but seeing that video and the Asian and Snow themes I’m VERY excited and faith is quickly being restored in you guys. It will be interesting to see where this game is in 6 months time, if you keep supporting it with good quality content then it should be able to maintain it’s popularity for a long time to come! :)

Just do us ALL one favour: Remove Tiku Tik Mountain and the various 100,000 Drift points tracks from the Top Tracks once and for all. It’s embarrasing that they are constantly showcased (by way of your odd algorithms) especially since there are literally a million creations more deserving than them!

I can’t hear the video very well, but I was wondering if we are going to be able to race against our own creations soon? I am close to giving up on this game, but if this gets implemented than I am back on the drivers seat blowing up my creations! Also have the option to assign karts to mods so that picking our characters doesn’t take so long. I have more than 150 created mods and karts and it takes too long to go through all of them. Maybe a sort would help. Please answer me on this!

I agree
This is my NUMBER ONE Feature Request since the game was released…

UFG please make this happen!!!

This has been mentioned and even commented on by your developers/programmers since the beginning…what is the status of this functionality?

Also,
Have you fixed the GoGo Gravity kart sticker problem that’s been documented in the Forums (you claim to read ALL the time) both in the Official BUG Thread and in a separate post… those who purchase this Soap Box Derby kart (as part of the Holiday Bundle) may be a little upset if the stickers aren’t working correctly.

Thanks for the new Full Theme next week.
