We would like to officially announce the union of ModNation Monday and the ModNation Facebook fan page. ModNation Monday continues to announce upcoming DLC, ModNation events, “Creations of the Week”, etc … Our ModNation Facebook page will allow us to offer more frequent updates, race and creation results, event details, MNR related links, user submitted creation pictures (and videos!), plus other fun MNR stuff. For those that can’t get enough MNR, the ModNation Forums are the place for you. The forums offer great interaction between players/creators, and the forums are the perfect place to have many of your ModNation related questions answered.

Spotlight Track of the Week
Hawaiian Odyssey by atheistsw
atheistsw says: So I decided to make a track with my least-used theme, Jungle. I’ve used the trees and stuff loads but the actual base very little, so I was interested in seeing how I could use this theme to cover the major sections of the Hawaiian Islands, namely beach, jungle, mountains, volcano’s and cities. Well, I’m happy to say that the experiment worked and the result is a lush, varied trek around a beautiful approximation of this dramatic and stunning land.
Mark says: atheistsw, seriously!?, This track is the “happy place” I go to every once in a while on a rough day. How did you extract this from my brain? I have tried over and over to create a track with my favorite elements in it and you just listed them word for word. My dream realized!
I suggest people make it a top priority to play this track many times if you want to learn about track creation and design; varied and unique shortcuts, elements such as trees and brush as living aspects of the track, beautiful visuals and elevation changes. All of this is done in droves but with never sacrificing ANY bit of quality. atheistsw shows us how build a dense rich feature packed track without ever “jumping the shark” with frills and gimmicks.
This track makes it into my personal “MNR Hall of Fame” which just opened for business today… in Hawaii!

Mod and Kart Creations of the Week
Mark: This is the stuff I love. MACLATIN has created a mod and kart that not only “match” but visually tell a story. Now all we need is to hear that story. This guy is too cool to be left hanging. We have created a ModNation-“palooza” event just for this type of creation. See below for the event titled “ModNation Superhero.”
MACLATIN, you are half way there already. Tell us about him! Can’t wait to hear it.
“ModNation Superhero” March 21st – April 8th:
We are combing the vast collection of published creations in search of the perfect ModNation Superhero. Over the next few weeks we WILL find him/her and bring their story to the masses. We will go to any lengths to find our hero, but we sure would love your help. Do you have a Superhero mod and/or kart that you would like to share with the Nation? Show us, give us the hero’s story and we will share it right here in ModNation Monday blog post for the world to see. Who knows? This may launch that dream of being a comic book creator. Post your Superhero mod and/or kart with his or her story here. Please keep your Superhero fresh and original; we want to see YOUR creations and not someone else’s!
The new Papercut mod is now available for $.99, the kart is also $.99. Both for only $1.75 in the PlayStation Store.
Mod: 3D (Glasses), Paper Hat, Biffpow (Skin)
Kart: Origami (Body), Recycle (Wheels), Box Cutter (Accessory), Ruler (Accessory)
- The 3D glasses do not actually allow your mod to see in 3D
- Bandages not included
- All bad puns used in the promotion of this DLC are free for you to use. You are very welcome!
ModNation Mini GP
In case you missed it, I thought I’d remind everybody about this old MNR gem. Take a look, it’s a pretty cool little mini-game you can play on your PC. It’s nothing like the real deal, when you’re at home in front of your PS3 but you might still get your MNR fix when the real thing is not available.” Click here.
That’s it for this week people. Please be kind to each other!
ONTD* – “Oh No They Didn’t!”
ONHD** – “Oh No He Didn’t!”
p.s. – Ladies, I would love to find a ONSD*** moment!
