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.

Monday: Snake City, by TheQk

@99 Please no. 4 racers is small enough. Can you imagine getting into a room with a leacher and it’s just you racing by yourself? BORING!
While I’m on the topic of leachers, sleepers, dead sticks, whatever you want to call them, can we get the option to create an XP room instead of being forced to join existing ones? I get so tired of being forced into the same room with a leacher that just DNF over and over. They destroy the races by imbalancing the item pod distribution. Nobody can pick up a warp since the sleeper is always in last. The person who is actually racing and in the back of the pack really needs those warps to stay competitive.

k that track Christmas eve looks just silly with no snow but as I heard theirs a snow theme coming soon is their a release date I have video game snow fetish lol something I would like to see added to this game haven’t played since launch never did much creating just beat the single player and did a couple online races anyways this game needs a new set of weapons and power-ups this is just an example for the snow levels coming it would be realistic that it would be hard to drive the karts on snow/ice make sure theirs icy patches its a must so here a great idea for a power-up traction control last a certain amount of time or you could make it so we could customize are kart like buy it with in game points so it last forever use it on snow courses Battle mode like in Mario kart is a great feature that am sure alot of people want including myself make it happen a Bentley Murray from sly and cooper mod n karts would be awesome to and instead of just having karts n mods for some of sony’s greats why not make themes for them like a killzone3 Sly cooper Uncharted Metal Gear Solid Resistance Fall of man I don’t even think theirs a RFOM Mod/Kart

Cool DLC roll calls! Even cooler if you include my Stunt Arena track in the vid where all Stunt props are showcased.

Maybe you guys could seriously consider patching in the ability to rotate props Vertically AND Horizontally? It’s already been done in a fair few tracks by way of a glitch (that you guys are trying damned hard to keep a lid on, lol) but seeing as how this opens up the creative possibilities EVEN MORE surely it wouldn’t be too difficult for you to patch it into the game legitimately? I know this would make a lot of my creator friends (me as well) EXTREMELY happy! :D

i think the battle mode and other concerns will be implemented on the next modnation… i hope there will be another modnation… and it will be a blast!
Keep up the good work UFG

Oh UFG i have a request… can we see emotions of other players before the Go sign i notice ever since i first play modnation i never see anyone doing the emotions before seing the go sign… and i always do that and my favorite emotion is the Loser sign but i think other players don’t see my Loser sign :(… small problem but can you fixed that? please… because that will be SICK if i have a mortal enemy and i want to thumbs down on him before the start of the race >:)

Since I’ve been beginning to put GT5 down for a bit, I’ve been picking Modnation back up again… I need to get back into the top 500 on skill rating! But on another note, will there be more double points weeks? I’m level 28 and level 30 seems so far away, so does 250000 create XP…

Could you guys please patch this game to allow button remaping. My wife and sister in law can’t reach the triggers easily, so they don’t play a game they would otherwise play.

I’m so upset…

I watched this on Monday when it was posted and didn’t see that it said next week. I can’t believe I have to go another whole week with this excitement built up inside me.

You guys need to stop with the abuse of the banning power. Everyday I hear about someone getting banned or their creation being banned. Why just yesterday I had a friend from the game have their RANDOMIZED creation banned. What is going on here? Why is everyone and everything being banned? Do you want to destroy your game and reduce your player numbers? Because from where I stand that is what you want to do. Stop the Tyranny and just let us PLAY!

I don’t know if Sony messed up (again) or what about DLC content for Modnation Racers. But I’m just watching right now the store and there’s a new DLC MOD there that hasn’t been announced here:

BABU MOD

it’s a pink elephant who has 7 parts for creations: turban, new skin, elephant mask, sash (shirt and pants), fancy braceless and elephant ears..

I mean what the… suddenly cool new mods appear in the store and we are not been noticed??, and in addition, It should have it’s own kart as well and sell like a package! :P

Come on Sony!!

I would really love to see the option to have nighttime with lit up buildings. Also possibly the feature to make 90 degree square turns so we can make some cool city tracks.

As soon as IP Mods have parts that can be used in original Mods, I’ll start buying IP Mods.

Not being able to use the Sweet Tooth kart gun on my own karts was the first of a long line of dealbreakers for me.
