Hi all, In case you missed last week’s blog, I’m Mark Wilson aka “the new guy” aka “mdub” here on Team ModNation. Thank you for all the nice introductions this past week on the forums.
I am stoked to work with the ModNation Racers team here in San Diego, the awesome team at United Front Games in Vancouver, and with you, the guy (or girl) with the PS3 controller in one hand and a highly caffeinated beverage in the other, working day and night on your masterpiece of a Track, Mod, or Kart. I look forward to doing what I can to encourage and develop new creators into the family.
Killzone Kart and Mod!

Get Bit By the Love Bug!
As you probably know, Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, and as a show of love for all of you, we’ll be giving you something special next week.
Tune in next week for details!
New Addition To ModNation Mondays
Next week I will be introducing a new feature that I think you’ll enjoy. I can’t tell you about it just yet, but if I was you I would bust out my PSP and get it charged. I’m just sayin’.
ModNation Creations of the Week – BRING IT!
Whether you have created one track or one hundred tracks (has anybody done 100+?) we want to see them all. That’s what this game is all about Play Create Share. Give it your best shot. Who knows, you just might see your creation featured in this weekly blog or your track may make it to the Hot Lap section of the game. Remember these key few points to help you get your creations noticed. No Intellectual Property – IP or inappropriate content in the creation OR in the title of the creation. Many times we have to exclude creations from Hot Lap status based on creation titles alone. So sad. To submit your creation CLICK HERE.
Hopefully with the new unlock key and new parts packs we will be receiving a flood of new creations. We are expecting you to keep us up all night too, liters of eye drops at our side, playing, laughing, ooo-ing and awe-ing, crying and hugging (appropriately) over your newest efforts.
PS3 Mod and Kart of the Week
Mod Name: alien fighter pilot
Stunning! Screen shots in no way give this mod the justice it deserves. I’m not sure what unknown universe this mod is from or what mysterious planet sjm101 may have visited but let us in on it! You must download this mod to believe it (available in five designer colors). sjm101… Please build a story around him. Note – no parties involved in building this game can be held responsible for the content of the subliminal messages emanating from the “thingamajigy” on alien fighter pilot’s back. Too cool! (btw… Merriam Webster defines thingamajigy as – something that is hard to classify or whose name is unknown or forgotten). Cool “thingamajigy” sjm101!
Kart Name: MNR Mods Racing
Tag and the ModNation team in San Diego thank you for the love. Great kart!
Spotlight Track Of The Week
Track Name: The River of the Sun
Track Creator: Funkee_Monkee4
Funkee_Monkee4 says: race through a luscious river valley with multiple shortcuts.
Mark says: Now that’s an understatement! Funkee_Monkee4 seemingly designed this course intentionally linking many unique aspects of ModNation gameplay. After many play troughs I could not choose just one route as my favorite. That ‘s good design in my opinion. This forces you to make in-race decisions at that very moment based on your track position, available boost, etc… Funkee_Monkee4 has built a track that may not solicit a lot of initial WOW’s the first few times around (those get old anyway) but with repeated play I was still smiling out loud… Nice!, Nice! Niiiice!
Funkee_Monkee4… You created a fun, well designed, competitive yet fair racing environment. Nice!

Well there we have it. Week one under my belt and I’m looking forward to week two. Lots more to come (trust me) but we need your help. I’d love to see lots more tracks submitted to choose from. Lots more…, don’t make me beg,… ok, … please,… pretty please!
Have a great week everyone!
