Hot Lap Tracks Of The Week: Atlas City Mini Golf Park by IndustrialSavior
My first thought upon starting this tracks was “hmmm… cheeseburger” but I digress. Immediately my second thought was that of absolute joy as I raced what should be considered the gold-standard of the golfing (miniature or otherwise) track design genre (along with apricot-jam-IS’s tracks). Race under castles, though pipes, between windmill blades and around alligators, etc… all of the mini-golf staple elements are present here. Now if somebody could just design a great Disc Golf (Frisbee Golf in laymen’s terms) course I could die a very happy man! *wink*

Summary:
1. Cheese-burger
2. Joy
3. Excitement
4. Accolades
5. Alligators
6. Great race!

Monday: Atlas City Mini Golf Park by IndustrialSavior
IndustrialSavior has discovered some sort of time-warp continuum in the universe lately that allows him to produce 2-4 great tracks a week! Don’t “Bogart” the time machine, IndustrialSavior!
Tuesday: Viking’s Valhal by Biver_
Biver_ wasn’t sure if his track was Hot lap worthy. What?! We’re not worthy Biver_, we’re not worthy!
Wednesday: TR [Twisted Routes] by resven
This is a really impressive submission considering resven being new to the game and only their second published track. Great job!
Thursday: Porta Valara by Cmckinney94
Another strong creation from a relative new comer to the Hot lap creation world. Keep ‘em coming!
Friday: Highways n’ By-Ways by atheistsw
atheistsw is still loving his Big City theme creation tools, evidenced by this strong racer
Saturday: Indusburg Nuclear Winter by IndustrialSavior
IndustrialSavior has become a track creating madman recently. Check out his portfolio over the past few months. He’s on fire!
Sunday: Jumping the Great Wall by dane9261
I have always enjoyed dane9261’s creation sensibilities. His obvious vision for his tracks pays off big time here

I have nothing to say, but giving you 5 bars for awesome community support.

Oh, the signature line in “J” is nice touch.

Thank you for showing support to Japan!

I have a Halloween Mod ready, and I was wondering if there was a special forum I needed to post it on.

Also, kudos to the team for creating the “Holiday Props Pack”. I just bought it, and it goes perfectly with the Arctic expansion pack. I love how you can crash through most of the objects, like the snowmen and presents. Hopefully I won’t get carried away with that in my new creations. I’ve got a lot of creating planned for November and December, and can’t wait to get back into the creative competitions.

I heard the PS Vita version will use PS3 DLC, if we had already purchased it on PS3, can we simply redownload it without additional pay?

wow @ the creativity. Sony should hire some of these ppl as game developers or testers… speaking of The Tester, ya’ll should have a challenge where contestants hav 2 create levels on MNR & LBP cause doin army drills or being blind folded wearing a sumo-fat suit has NOTHING 2 do with gaming. jus my opinion.

    I’m not sure the last time you played but there was a patch a while back that helped with the load times.

Alright. First off, thanks for supporting Japan! Awesome country for the culture and entertainment!

Also, thanks for mentioning hoshii961miki (for making the Haruhi Suzumiya Mod I always play as)!

And finally, congrats Industrial for the Track Of The Week spot! It really deserved it!

Hi, thanks for the hotlap track this week, one of my most raceable in a long while I reckon, although I was disappointed that Verazzo Pass (last weeks omitted hotlap) was not re-instated for this weeks roster which is a shame as it’s one of my personal favourites in a long while and unfortunately it’s not really receiving much attention from the community. :( Usually when hotlap tracks are missed out they do get put on later (it’s happened to apricot-jam-IS several times) so hopefully you’ll afford my track the same courtesy?

Thanks

Hi Mark, I am glad to see you are featuring Japanese MNR players this week(I am Japanese) and excited to find some of my friends’ names and works here.
MNR is still popular in Japan and most of players are looking forward to seeing ModNation:Road Trip(nice logo) for sure.We hope “Road Trip” would be in store in Japan as well.
