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
Sunday: Mystery Track

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

@ 52 Ive had the same problem and it seems Sony doesn’t want to help I know they got alot on their plate but its a simple reply all they need to do is say what to do n theres a handful of people with this problem

Also Id like to point out ive been a playstation owner since day 1 ps1 era but sometimes this company just annoys me so much theirs so many things that should be fixed and for some reason its not taken care of one of the things that needs to be done asap price cuts to the psn 56cents for an avatar like give me a break will u I have 50 cents and cant even get 1 cause im 6 cents short their shouldn’t be tax on a thing that cost probably less than 5 cents to make why do I half to buy a $50 n $20 psn card to get playstation plus n i don’t even know if its worth the money so far to many game trails for old games like redaction tomb raider I could use a credit card but I don’t want to need it for other things anyways I could sit here all day n keep adding things that need to be fixed but I wont I love sony and will always support them but its time for some major changes

+ RamonM64 on December 13th, 2010 at 4:54 pm said:

wow.. this is a pretty kool add. making tracks and mods is already limitless, adding more is INSANE! ill definitely welcome it though.

if you guys do think about new weapon, consider a ice weapon. Lv1-simple ice beam-like shot, freezes target in a glacier like rock for a second, touching them while frozen gets you frozen for a second adding balance(maybe make it you get unfrozen faster by hopping). Lv2-travels like the Lv 2 lightning and gots the same wide and spreading effect when it hits and same effects as Lv1 ice. Lv3-make a HUGE blizzard like storm travel through the whole track, like the Lv3 sonic rift except it freezes and causes the same effects as the other Ice lvls..

i think new weapons WOULD add more action, i dont find it especialy necessary though. maybe work on new games modes first like score battle races, battle mode and elimination life battle mode which i know are on ALOT of peoples minds. which is what i think i want most. oh.. and hopefully you guys gives us more creations slots to publish stuff, im full of published stuff with around 70 stuff.. i think Ive got alot of stuff on hold and continue to make more and more AND.. this new pack is gonna make me just make more and MORE.. besides that get some triple A servers to host a triple A game!

ANYWAY.. thanks for makin somethin sooo FREAKIN fun and makes us push our imagination to the LIMITS

Whoa!!! New themes are finally arriving. Just wondering, but how much will the themes cost?

Also, I have suggestions on what UFG can do in the future. Instead of just allowing us to have overcast, do you think it would be possible if you could make it so we have the ability to make it rain, snow, etc. I also think you should make a Mars theme. It could have futuristic buildings and possibly even aliens walking around in some of them. Those are some of my many suggestions, and I will keep them coming, but you guys at UFG have to keep using as many suggestions given by the community as possible. Thanks for reading and creating.:)

Hey, Chuck Lacson, this will definitely get me back to playing this game, once the far east dlc gets released, and snow, oh boy.

P.S. This is off-topic, but will your team consider Battle Mode ? something like Mario Kart and/or Diddy Kong Racing, and no level 3 power-ups in that, only 2 levels, or just 1 with various others that are weak counterparts of the current and maybe some new, just for that mode.

What has the community’s reaction been to the level 3 power-ups ?
I find it, a little unfair when your leading and get shot by 3-4 of them 1-2 seconds apart.

Anyways, keep up the great work, looking to see what else is in store for us ;)

hey UFG, just a thought that will get people to play even more, epecially on split screen and etc, u should add grand prix as a race mode for fun and a random option so u dont have to go back to a menu after every race, instead you can just jump into a next race choosen out the tracks u have (download and creations as a option also) might sound like alot but to be fair, we should have got a arena mode, and right now those 2 things grand prix and battle are the 2 things that this game should have that makes me and my friends play sonic and sega allstar racing, when we rather this,and ps, ill never platinum this if u dont do nun bout the creation 250,000xp trophy i got like 80, 000 to 100,000 and im not getting nowhere :(, if it wasnt for my amazing charlie brown mod which, i need promoted, i would have like 25,000xp :(
