ModNation Racers for PS3: ModNation Mondays

Greetings everyone! Ramone Russell here with another ModNation Monday Tuesday update!

Double XP week ends Thursday!

Remember to take advantage while you can, it only lasts through Wednesday. By the way, some of you have asked so I wanted to clarify — the multiplier is not applied at the end of a race so you won’t see it there, but when you get back to the ModSpot and check your stats you’ll see that you’re getting Double XP. Enjoy!

ModNation Racers Dynamic Theme available on PSN

For those who can’t get enough ModNation Racers, the Dynamic Theme is available on the PSN for $2.99 putting you right on the racetrack.

Blind-Rush says: “Forgotten Ruins Mountain is a former battle zone of a war held by three civilizations; desert, jungle and alpine civilizations. After the war, all was left in ruins making one of the best tracks in the ModNation world. To make this track, I used props from three themes, the ones mentioned earlier. I took advantage of this feature to make various passages, each one with a different theme.”

Track Name: ”Switchbacks and Stairs”

Harbringer says: “A simple, yet not so simple track that takes you up a mountain through a series of switchbacks then flying back down a crate staircase. This is a unique track you don’t want to miss!”)

Track Name: ”Evolution City”

Stitchless says: “This is Evolution City. After several people began gaining powers, the city was given to this population so they would have a place to call home. Heroes and villains roam these streets, and some even the sky. Even after the recent attack by Toxic, the city sprang back quickly. Be forewarned: there are many paths to chose from. Will you follow the sewer line like the crazed cyborg? Will you take a detour through town? Or do your powers take you to the top, soaring above all?”

When you think about it, now is the perfect time to throw up posts for little known titles, or those Sony wants to give the extra “push” to. Captive audience!

PuppetShoJustice said:

No. Double XP week only showed me how weak and unstable the UFG servers are. You can’t keep up with your own playerbase. Searching for mods, publishing mods, trying to unpublish old mods to put up new ones, all met with failure on the part of the crummy servers.

I seriously haven’t seen servers so unstable since EverQuest in 1999.

I wash my hands of this game.

Hey Ramone

Quick question:

I got a Ratchet and Clank DLC code from Amazon for pre-ordering. I held onto it before redeeming but now I can’t redeem it. I read online that they expired or something, but there was no expiration date listed in my email from Amazon. Is there a way to get the code replaced? Or someone I can send my Amazon email to to verify and replace?

Thanks for letting me know.

    We dont’ deal with the pre-order problems you will have to contact Amazon sorry.

You guys should add some PSN avatars for the main characters in the story of the game or maybe talk with Sony and work out someway to use the in-game camera function to allow us to take pictures of our custom made avatars and use those as our avatars for PSN like we can for the forums.

Now thats a Dynamic theme! GREAT job!!! Makes me want to pick up Modnation racers!

PuppetShoJustice said:

September 7th, 4:46 pm

Do yourself a favor and don’t. The single player game is fun but the online aspects (i.e. the bulk of the game) are ultra shoddy. Especially when people are actually playing it like during this Double XP Week.

Too many people in the Modspot complaining about getting booted randomly. At one point when taking my mods off the publisher I got 37 disconnects before taking all my mods down.

Losingrip said:

September 7th, 4:47 pm

Update the store!

I wish to complain about how crappy the update it lol

fuzzyclutter said:

September 7th, 4:50 pm

ok how many people submitted a correctly functioning track and guess which one gets picked for sunday ? hughada morning . a track that not only already was picked . but contains a huge glitch where peaple can skip large portions of track ….. im not wasting my gaming time with this game any more … goodbye .

FBanin said:

September 7th, 4:52 pm

Update the store… please!

PhillyTheCat said:

September 7th, 4:54 pm

everyone anxious to spend some money or play demos?

ruleterren said:

September 7th, 4:56 pm

Ive been waiting all day, please update the store already. I want to see new content!

MarinoBrea said:

September 7th, 4:57 pm

great dynamic theme! It may actually be worth $3.00..too bad I don’t like it and I don’t care much for MNR…

streetking902 said:

September 7th, 4:58 pm

update the store i really want to get my psn plus update and buy a new game ps this game kicks me out of the servers to much

PuppetShoJustice said:

September 7th, 4:59 pm

I actually do agree the theme is decent. I wish more games would make them. I’d totally buy a decent Bayonetta or Red Dead Redemption Dynamic Theme. Or Demon’s Souls.

MNR has just provided too much frustration for me to want to see it every time I boot up my console.

FBanin said:

September 7th, 4:59 pm

I want play the best demo ever…. Ghost Of Sparta now! Please!

Berae said:

September 7th, 5:02 pm

Nice dynamic theme, i like it.

Hmmm people are so rude… its not because you are talking on the Internet that you can be such [DELETED]..

neuroned said:

September 7th, 5:02 pm

ModNation Monday?!

Ummm… it’s Tuesday.

Yeah, yeah… I know. Monday was a “holiday.”

So perhaps you should have called this post ModNation Tuesday.


Sarno1605 said:

September 7th, 5:02 pm

Wow! 7pm central and still no update. You were doing so good, guess that was just a fluke.

PuppetShoJustice said:

September 7th, 5:04 pm

Despite the holiday; lots of other posts were made yesterday.

A few more hours EST over here and it would have been Modnation Wednesday. This is just UFG showing its apathy for its playerbase.

neuroned said:

September 7th, 5:05 pm

Oh… and $2.99 for a dynamic theme?


Drugs are cheaper.

Two thigs:

First of all, ModNation Racers is a very good game, but does have some faults. I have never had much online problems, though.

Second of all, it bugs me that the most recent post before the update seems to be the “Unoficcial Update Waiting Thread”. Seriously, just wait for it. It’ll come out eventually.

HeLLeVeN11 said:

September 7th, 5:15 pm

hmmmmmm…. any update this week or…???

socomftbcool said:

September 7th, 5:15 pm

It’s a labor day week . Hopefully after this update it will revert back to the 7 PM update time as normal.

RingJ5 said:

September 7th, 5:17 pm


Also, just to clarify, I’m waiting for this update with baited breath too. I just don’t understand some of the all-caps comments in blog posts that they shouldn’t be in.

lobotomies4free said:

September 7th, 5:18 pm

it’s nice to see a nice dynamic theme

PuppetShoJustice said:

September 7th, 5:19 pm

Are you running an American copy of the game? I haven’t had connection issues on literally anything else I’ve played. Not on my PC. Not on my PS3.

Modnation is the only thing that continually and utterly fails me as far as online connectivity goes.

I decided to break last night and actually try an XP Series and was met with one two guys who disconnected during the first race and one person who was AFK at the starting line.

Racing yourself in multiplayer isn’t what I’d call fun.

RingJ5 said:

September 7th, 5:24 pm

Me? Yes, I’m running an American copy, and wouldn’t trade it n for anything. Not really for the races, even though they are very fun, but from the feeling I get every time someone downloads my stuff.

I have never had any game-breaking connection problems.

RingJ5 said:

September 7th, 5:26 pm


Also, I don’t know why it’s never happened to me, but I’ve seemingly been booted out of races a very small amount of times compared to some of you(at most 5), so maybe I’m not one to talk.

Sarno1605 said:

September 7th, 5:26 pm

God Damn Sony! Update the store already. Its almost 5:30 in california! WTF Seriously!

PuppetShoJustice said:

September 7th, 5:28 pm

Well, I’m glad you’re having fun with it.

This will actually be the first thing I’ve -ever- sold in my 25 years of console gaming.

socomftbcool said:

September 7th, 5:29 pm

Well , Sarno1605 , it’s 8:39 here . Quit complaining.

jimfear said:

September 7th, 5:32 pm

update the goddamn store you lazy …

SpyDudeFX said:

September 7th, 5:32 pm

@tlwizard81 I believe Amazon codes always expire 90 days from ship date. Since you’re just two weeks off, you might be able to email Amazon customer service and explain. Good luck!

@socomftbcool~ where on the east are you? florida here.
