ModNation Monday: One Way to Beat the Heat

Mark Wilson's Avatar Posted by Community Specialist, San Diego Studios

Nothing says summer (sunburn, too much chlorine, overpriced bad theme park food, etc…) like a good ol’ local water park! Do the ModNation a summertime favor and build us that themed waterpark of our (and your) dreams.

A Renaissance waterpark? How about a Western waterpark? An Outer Space waterpark?… the themes are pretty endless. Make us some cool (pun intended) waterpark tracks using the new DLC and they just might end up in Hot Lap or Top Tracks! DETAILS HERE.

NEW DLC:

Oil Stain Mod & Kart will be available in the PlayStation Store on August 2nd.
Mod is $.99 and includes: Undershirt, Ragged Overalls, Hillbilly Beard, Straw Hat, Kart is $.99 Includes: Mark I Body and Mattress Seat. Both for $1.75

RECENT DLC:
Junkyard Parts Pack is available in the PlayStation Store now for $4.99.

DLC SHOWCASE:
Don’t hold back on us. We are DESPERATELY “jones-ing” for some new tracks with all this great DLC in it. We know they are out there; we just need your help finding it. I mean, I’m decent at my job but with an average of 800+ new tracks created per day I can’t be expected to be THAT good! Help me! Who knows… you might just help me win the coveted “Employee of the Month” parking spot!
Please let us know if you find any recent track gems like these using any new DLC by visiting our forum HERE.or listing them below in the comments.

Creations of The Week:

Track of The Week:
Invasion: Aftermath by atheistsw
I always have such fun playing atheistsw’s tracks. First things first… they are always top notch races, but what I admire the most is the environments he builds, they actually tell a story… from the ModNation Mayor addressing the hysterical (but strangely in-line) masses, the head of the alien invasion asking to be “taken to your leader”, the alien bugs climbing the skyscraper walls, the towns buildings in shambles (with broken water mains!), and an award has to be given to atheistsw for the “Best Placement of Army Tanks In An Alien Invasion Track”. The tanks are in wait across a broken bridge to the finish line. Genius!

Hot Lap Tracks:
Monday: Invasion: Aftermath by atheistsw
Tuesday: Rottimus Berg Hyhenluft by IndustrialSavior(you had me at Rottimus)
Wednesday: Peruvian Shakedown (2.0) by corliss(simple but not simplistic fun course)
Thursday: Reassembled Ruins v1.0 by lop330(I really like the two themes working together. Well executed. Fun race)
Friday: Ocean View Heights by PH1LThy31(PH1LThy31 has been a mean lean Hot Lap creating machine lately. Textbook Big City course. One of my favs!)
Saturday: Sequoia Summit Raceway by corliss(Didn’t grab me until after a few races. Once I got it I really enjoyed it. I felt like I was back in Yosemite!)
Sunday: Death Valley Oasis by PH1LThy31(see above!)

Creations of The Week:
Kart: Freestyle by Shelbot3001

Mod: Freestyle Biker by Shelbot3001 (Shelbot3001 this is amazing! Real three dimensional jewels for the reflectors and twist-ties for the cabling? This is AMAZING!)

How can you tell which one is for SCEA?

Hooligantuan said:

August 1st, 3:41 pm

You can’t. O_o

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 3:42 pm

First two were Europe Papercut, third was claimed quick.

moriarty1975 said:

August 1st, 3:42 pm

1st two are for Europe….

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 3:43 pm

Tired entering the 3rd one first, but it didn’t work….

JNM-CIM said:

August 1st, 3:44 pm

Argh!!!! This is soooo frustrating!

Hooligantuan said:

August 1st, 3:44 pm

Welp, I’m outta here. This is substantially more miss than the usual hit-or-miss since we’re being tossed codes from different regions.

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 3:44 pm

I can’t find the “Official” facebook page either. Anyone have a link? Are different codes being dropped there?

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 3:44 pm

I should probably do what I said earlier and just wait for another day to try again.

Well good luck to you people.

race2winnet said:

August 1st, 3:46 pm

Hey Mark,
Do you think that you could tell whether the code is for SCEA or SCEE, etc.? That would save us from messing with the codes that are not going to work for us and concentrate on the ones that will.

Many thanks!

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 3:47 pm

@110 If he did that they would go even faster. I think you have a better chance this way.

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 3:51 pm

@107 Hooligantuan. Yep, this is getting ridiculous…

race2winnet said:

August 1st, 3:52 pm

@111 That’s fine, at least we would know which ones will work for our region.

Iop330 said:

August 1st, 3:54 pm

aaaagh need codes XD

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:09 pm

I hope they let us know when they are done giving out codes. I’ll sit here all night hitting F5, when I could be playing MNR! (As Stowaway? lol)

    I will do that. Good call.

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:10 pm

@115 Same here.

JNM-CIM said:

August 1st, 4:14 pm

I think this is most times I’ve ever hit the F5 key in one sitting!

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:15 pm

I love/hate these give-aways. It’s a great feeling to win something, but it takes some dedication.

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:16 pm

Has there been a pattern to when they are posted??

Mist_Shark said:

August 1st, 4:16 pm

LOSE-YOUR-MIND

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:16 pm

Usually as soon as I get up to tinkle or something.

JNM-CIM said:

August 1st, 4:18 pm

No, I’ve seen them come as early as 15 minutes, and others over an hour later.

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:18 pm

@119 yes, they’re posted when you’re checking something else because you’re tired of pressing f5

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:19 pm

Haha, I missed the last 2 hours and went to take my permit test, and I passed :) my reward should be a free DLC

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:20 pm

Haha welcome back to the party. I remember you leaving!

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:20 pm

@125 me too lol

JNM-CIM said:

August 1st, 4:23 pm

@124 Congratulations! :)

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:24 pm

Thanks!! :)

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:24 pm

My goal is to get Stowaway (the other ones we can buy). Mark, please post tons of codes for it ;-)

    There is only a limited number of Stowaway vouchers to giveaway. We want to keep it “special” by not giving them away like candy. Sorry :(

    There will be more opportunities. Keep your eyes and ears out (MNR blog and Facebook).

    I am now hungry for candy!

moriarty1975 said:

August 1st, 4:27 pm

Today won’t be the last chance to win a Stowaway. BTW its freakin’ sweet!

rera121989 said:

August 1st, 4:27 pm

I just got here… Is Mark Wilson going to continue giving away free DLC???

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:27 pm

Post 10 at once Mark… Please???

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:27 pm

If you are hitting F5 and only looking at the bottom… he said he will tell us when they are done giving out codes.

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:27 pm

@131 that’s our hope

Those were more Nukulars. :(

There haven’t been any SCEA Stowaways yet. Only Nukulars.

And Europe is getting Papercuts.

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:33 pm

Got the nukular guy with the second code… Thanks Mark I love it!!!

JNM-CIM said:

August 1st, 4:35 pm

Sorry for my ignorance, but what are Nukulars?

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:35 pm

Even if they are all Nukulars, this is the first time in a long time I’ve felt like part of the community. It’s alot of fun.

rera121989 said:

August 1st, 4:36 pm

Whats the official Modnation Racers page on Facebook?

Chase167 said:

August 1st, 4:37 pm

no more

Killerewok said:

August 1st, 4:38 pm

http://www.facebook.com/ModNationRacers seems to be the Official EU Fanpage, but I haven’t found the NA version. Facebook isn’t my forte.

ripper171 said:

August 1st, 4:38 pm

Got the nukular guy, thanks Mark… still hoping to get Stowaway though… maybe one day…

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 4:41 pm
