ModNation Racers Beta Starts December 18 + Character Creation Walkthrough #2

Hello everyone!

Rob Oliveira here. I’m taking a quick break from work to talk to you about some more character creation features in ModNation Racers.

But first, here’s a date you’re going to want to mark down on your calendars. December 18. That’s the day we open up the ModNation Racers Beta to you. The Beta runs through January 10, and you’ll have the chance to score a Beta voucher right here on the PlayStation Blog! Stay tuned very soon for details on the Beta giveaway. Of course, those of you who picked up LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition already have a voucher, so you’re good to go!

In today’s video I’m going to give you a very brief walkthrough of our sticker and layering system. I’m going to create something using one simple shape, several layers, and some color changes.

Once you’ve seen what I do with one shape and a couple of layers, you can easily imagine what can be done with hundreds of stickers, and hundreds layers at your disposal. Our system allows you to move, scale, skew, rotate, flip and change the height and transparency of all these stickers. We’ve also created many “physical” stickers like rust, mud, and dents. Like all of the parts in our game, you can change the color channels, and material properties of each of these. I hope you’re starting to see the possibilities!

Don’t see that Chrome Dragon sticker you’re looking for? There’s nothing stopping you from using one of many primitives and gradients as brushes to create it in the layer editor. Use the material properties to change all those stickers to chrome. Our layering system allows you to group those layers together, so you can move, scale, rotate or change colors as a group. Once you’ve created that Chrome Dragon, group the layers together and paste the whole thing a few more times, or save it as a Sticker Set to your PS3, for use later.

The Creation Station team here at UFG have worked really hard to make this system easy to use, but incredibly powerful. Whether you decide to create characters quickly and casually, or dive in and spend hours and hours, we know you’ll be able to create some truly unique and unbelievable characters!

We are incredibly excited to get ModNation Racers into your hands and see what you create! Start planning now:)

I look forward to any questions or comments. And be sure to head back next week for another ModNation Racers video walkthrough, track editing! Now back to work!

Just want to say that I bought qore subscription 2 weeks ago and so far there hasn’t been anything in my inbox.

This same thing just happened when i bought GOW collection. Says voucher included in the box,guess what? No voucher inside.

You know I don’t care “who” is responsible for marketing things using vouchers for incentive but could “someone” please take some responsibility?

Hi Rob I’m really hoping its more than one player split screen as well.Do you know if this is the case or is it just multiplayer over the net.

Hi Rob, I am really hoping to get a voucher!! I read that you should register here, but I see nothing about a voucher. I even went to store to see if I could find anymore LBP with voucher sticker on them, but them had none. If it is possible may I please have a voucher to this incredible game? Thanks in advance!!

YungShep said:

December 17th, 4:06 pm

its still the 17th, but I have no email with my beta key…why does it always take this long to distribute beta keys? Home, resistance 2, socom confrontation, metal gear online, lbp and MAG they all took forever, I love sony, love my ps3 but this is ridiculous for real. Take my money but never reward me at @ decent time in the day for keys…smh..

Hey louisx1994, no online play 10 years ago?

You mean 1999, um yeah there were lots of online games, even before 1999, and there were betas too.

Even consoles had online back in 1999, the Dreamcast.

I just really want my voucher code! I subscribed to Qore on December 12th, I think. So why do I not have a voucher yet? I’m really, really looking forward to this game. I know I’ll put in plenty of hours.

I just received an e-mail from playstation that says: “congratulations! you’ve been selected to enter the modnation racers online beta!”
Good news is that I received a code for the online beta + limited theme code.
Bad news is that online beta will end on 1/10/10.

ultimate195 said:

Just got a weried idea for the credits. instead of the usual credits make the credits a race throught UFG office with the credits poping up on the top of the screen. :) sorry for the completely off topic idea lol

This is going to be an amazing game! But cant the beta be a little longer.

non-dooder said:

December 28th, 9:32 pm

I’m in the beta and had a couple of questions.

1. Where do I go to leave feedback for the game?

2. Is anything unlockable in the beta or must we wait for the full game?
