The “Moddys” Celebrate The ModNation Track Creating Community

moddy main

This is week four of our anniversary celebration, which brings us to the proverbial geniuses of ModNation – the Track Creators. Many of this game’s track designs rival the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, Daedalus, Mike Brady and Nimrod (considered the creator of the Tower of Babel). “Dude said Nimrod. Saaaweeeet!”

But seriously, if you have ever tried to make a track, you will appreciate how much work and passion goes into these creations. Only three words are needed to describe this group of creators Brill-i-ant”!
Take a look HERE

Next week we close the “Moddys” with our hodgepodge of categories such as “Cutest Mod Couple”, “People’s Choice” (creations chosen by the community), and other favorites from the ModNation Monday blogs. Lots to see next week. Be looking for it!

XP Race Series Track Changes!

That’s right racers, the wait is over! Starting this week you’ll be able to race your little hearts out on the Arctic and Big City Theme tracks. Get in line now because these ain’t your grandmother’s XP races. These are them “new fangled” “city feller” XP tracks! Booyah!

More Recent DLC

Pirate Mini-Theme Style Pack and Western Mini-Theme Style Packs are available to purchase in the PlayStation Store NOW for $6.99 each!

Construction Parts Pack, Prehistoric Parts Pack, and Moon Colony Props Packs are available to purchase in the PlayStation Store for $4.99 each!

Late Night Mod & Kart set and the MC Mod: Mod & Kart set are available to purchase in the PlayStation store now! Mod & Kart are $1.75 per set or each piece separately for $0.99. Remember… and all these Mods and Karts come with new parts for you to create with!

Can the Emergency Light change color? If not, I’ll better create a vintage/classic police version.

@Darkfire… the beta will be released when the store is updated. Some time tomorrow afternoon/evening.

You can go to sleep, because it’s not coming any time soon.

+ BigPoppaB on June 27th, 2011 at 9:36 pm said:

What does MNR need?

A section where you have ‘developers picks’ of all your favourite tracks made by users.

It’s so hard to find the quality user created tracks, and a section like this would be incredibly useful.

@10 – Totally agree, LBP2 has ‘MM Picks’, which changes every few weeks, for newcomers to the game they will likely go straight to ‘most played’ which consists of ‘Tiki Tik Mountain’, ‘100,000 drift points’ and ‘Modcoaster’ rubbish. :( Many of the best tracks on the game are buried a few pages back and I highly doubt many newcomers will bother to sift through many pages of content to find them. A ‘UFG picks’ section would allow them to showcase the best tracks of the last year, a “Hall Of Fame” if you will. ;)

Yay, another over-priced parts pack…people really need to stop shelling out for these things until they make the prices somewhat reasonable…

Anyone want to look up my creations? I don’t have many downloads, but I think they’re worth looking at. If you look at them, thanks.

+ Hooligantuan on June 28th, 2011 at 8:56 am said:

Sackboy is probably pure Pre-Order incentive DLC.

I kinda hope it stays like that, at this point. I like cosmetic “had to be there” content in games.

+ RE_Player on June 28th, 2011 at 10:05 am said:

Do you need to buy the Big City and Arctic theme packs in order to race them online in XP races? I ask because I already bought the Arctic pack and was wondering if I needed to buy the Big city pack to race those tracks online as well.

No need to buy the Big City DLC to play the tracks in XP races. But you should buy it anyway cause its it really quite good! :)

I really wish I could make sweet tracks like these, but All I could make is the basic track with a little spaz in it.

According to the U.S store update post the Water World props pack is $4.99 not $6.99 (So €4.99/£3.99 for Europe). Please stick to this price for the mini prop packs! ;)

Hi Mark

Ey can you tell whoever is in charge of the official website http://www.modnation.com that the log in is not working?, it displays to you the gray banner when the PSN is out, but it is not, I could log in here to post this, and log in my account in other psn access websites, so.. just letting you know about this issue

Congrats for everything
