ModNation Monday: We’re Givers. We Give. That’s What We Do!

Mark Wilson's Avatar + Posted by Mark Wilson on Oct 10, 2011 // Community Specialist, San Diego Studios

Hmmmmm… it’s too early for Christmas, and still too early for “trick or treats” in your ModNation goodie bag but we’ve got too much good stuff just to keep it all to ourselves.

So… FREE DLC giveaway and Double XP! Check it out below.

Build It, Race It, Post It, Rate It
That’s a pretty daft title for an announcement of DOUBLE XP week but sometimes we just throw caution to the wind like the punks that we are. Double XP October 10th – 17th means it is “get busy” week in the ModNation. You’ll earn 100% more XP in all XP races as well as double the fun with every download of your creations. Will this be the week you reach level 30? We hope so!

Give It Away, Give It Away, Give It Away Now
We’ve heard some rumors that you like free stuff. How about some free DLC? We’ll take a look around and see what we’ve got in the vaults. We might have some DLC stowed-away that hasn’t seen the light of day for a while.

We will be posting voucher codes for some random free DLC throughout the week at these sites between 10am and 4pm PST. Good luck!

Team Track Challenge II: Top Tracks (with a twist!)

top

A few weeks ago we randomly placed teams of three to four track creators together to collaborate on building a united team track. This was our second Team Track Challenge and this time included a slight twist. The teams were given the track foundation (spline) with the challenge to create something unique though starting from the same base layout. None of the teams knew the track they were going to create from was laid out by an 8yd old volunteer (see image above for initial track layout icon). Initially most team members couldn’t wait to jump into this challenge to show just what they could do. It did take a few players a while to warm up to the idea but they stepped up to the challenge and put out some fun tracks. It was really interesting to see the variety that came from the same foundation. Give them a drive and we’re sure you’ll learn something new about track creating (and collaboration).

Teams emerged with some really great tracks, of which our five favorite are featured in this week’s Top Tracks in the Modspot.

ModNation Thursday Fun Races
Join ModNationSD for an evening of fun racing Thursdays from 5:00-6:00 PST. This is a great opportunity to meet some nice people in a casual racing environment. Check our ModNation Facebook page on the day of the races on how to join.

ModNation Player Profiles: marusarusa
This week we feature one of ModNation’s most committed players, marusarusa. Living in Japan can be a bit of a challenge to connect with the MNR community in the U.S. and U.K. but neither time zone or language differences hinder marusarusa from being a valuable member of the MNR community. His creations are among many of my personal favorites. Check out marusarusa’s profile HERE

Keep Your Eyes Open and Your Head On A Swivel:
Be on the lookout for some really spooky Mods, Karts and Tracks for our upcoming Spooktacular ModNation Monday Halloween blog. I have a slight case of “fear of dark places”, so I sure could use some help searching the catacombs of the ModNation vaults.

If you find some Halloween-y creations, let us know HERE

Creations of the Week: “Ding!… Fries Are Done!”

Hot Lap Tracks Of The Week:

+ shredder110 on October 10th, 2011 at 2:42 pm said:

what about the people that work the morning shift like me? Last time I missed every opportunity to get the stowaway due to the fact that the codes are invalid by the time I get home which is about 6:30pm EST. : /
I rather just pay $5 for the kart / mod but…things have to be difficult these days.

@67 if I may ask, which one?


75

Its because that’s a pre-order bonus.

@76: Good luck! I won’t be getting that anytime soon lol.


79

yea Mark should post reusable codes for people that cant acces the ps3 at least something not big but for compesation at least 1 cart and 1 mod


80

@soar You’re in luck. This week is x2 XP week.


82

+ hypersk_us on October 10th, 2011 at 2:46 pm said:

There were other pre-order bonuses besides Sackboy like Kratos and Nathan Drake, but eventually they were uploaded to the store…

I don’t understand why this one is so special…

I gotta say I really think these code drops should be multi-use.. It’s almost impossible to get one…. I’ve tried just about all of the time to get one and never have…

Mark you need to just give the DLC away free on the store…. (even if it’s for an hour) That would be kind of cool!
I’m not even near my PS3 right now though so I don’t know how that would work.. (Free for a day or something!)

Or contests for these codes..

+ Hellmutt on October 10th, 2011 at 2:59 pm said:

@Mark: I disagree. The qriocity site is quite helpful when giving you error messages. Broken codes give this message:

“The Prepaid Card code you entered is incorrect or is no longer valid”
This message was presented by the last 3 codes.

Valid but redeemed codes give this message:
“This Prepaid Card has already been consumed.”
This message is presented by the first two codes (one of which I was able to redeem after I started at the bottom of your list and worked my way up).

This implies the last 3 codes have already expired, more likely than not.

@ reply to #88 (to avoid confusion!)

They are all valid…..until someone else is first to redeem them.
