NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR (MOD)NATION!
If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track for consideration as “Creation of the Week”, be sure to visit us on the official ModNation Community site and who knows?, you might see your hard work on the PlayStation ModNation Monday blog post or in-game on the Hot Lap section of the Modspot. REMEMBER… ask not what ModNation can do for you, but what can you do for ModNation!
(I wonder if President Obama would be the first president to play MNR? I’ll bet ya he’d be all over it. I’ll send him an email and find out! No really, I will.)

NEXT WEEK: Hot Laps 24/7
Starting next week we will be adding “celebrity’s choice” tracks to Hot Lap. Now tracks on Saturdays and Sundays will be hand chosen by members of the MNR family at large. These will include choices from modnationonline.com, modnationracershq.com, PS Nation Podcast, the ModNation development team, as well as many of the Elite track designers from the MNR community. This ought to be fun!
“TOP TRACKS” ARE NOW THE TOP TRACKS!
Let the ModNation celebrations begin! On your next visit to the Modspot take another look at the Top Tracks billboard. What?… no “Tiku Tik Mountain”, no “Unlimited Drift” or “Famous Flying Camel”? They are gone from Top Tracks but not forgotten, now gems in the ModNation crown.
Now each week we will choose a “Spotlight Track of the Week” (see below) which is the best-of-the best of the past weeks’ creation submissions. This “Spotlight Track of the Week” will be added to “Top Tracks” billboard for your racing enjoyment. Each week a new track will rotate in and one track will rotate out. This will give each of the winning tracks’ creators some much deserved exposure and possibly a lot more xp!
CREATIONS OF THE WEEK:
SPOTLIGHT TRACK OF THE WEEK
A Jurassic Nation by prob_alex
prob_alex says: “There are various alternate routes. but I won’t tell u the quickest… I’ll let you find out for yourselves!”
Smbradley (MNR community member) says: “Been looking forward to this since I saw the first pic of the T-Rex. That Pterodactyl looks absolutely brilliant. Awesome wooden bridge as well.”
Funkee_Monkee4 (MNR community member) says: “One of the best tracks I’ve played! This and a Whale’s Tale are some of your best offerings yet! I found the part with the terradactyl my favorite section”.
Mark’s Review: This is prob_alex’s third “Track of the Week” selection. Congratulations!
I knew right from the start as my heart was pounding in fearful anticipation that this track was going to be something special. Even after multiple laps I still feared a creature jumping out of the brush to take a bite out of my kart. Did it happen?, No. Was I still concerned?, Yes. I loved the fact that prob_alex made me drive through brush to collect item pods, not knowing what creature (if any) was in there. That’s good track design! I enjoy tracks that not only offer a great racing experience or great racing lines, but those that take me someplace I’ve never been OR always wanted to go. As far as dinosaur lands are concerned I’ll stick to this track and maybe a fairly popular series of Jurassic period movies that I hear are pretty good.
Honorable Mention: Valentine by BongSoldier.
What a great idea for a Valentines track. Diving through a heart shaped ring of red roses… awesome! (I tried to re-edit the track and give it to my wife as a Valentines gift but she didn’t like that). #nightonthecouch
