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!)

I’m expecting some slippin’ and a slidin’ in a ModNation Water park soon!

…. this one might still be working. FYI.

I really hope it’s the latter case because I’d hate to squander DLC I already own from other people, especially stowaway because it’s supposed to be rare.

Geez…
All this track making stuff. I’m really missing out on it. I don’t have the Big City theme or anything ahead of it…

spideridol said:

August 1st, 1:37 pm

This has been the best game ever….. I usually get bored with a game within a month; but I’ve been hooked on this one since only the DEMO was available! MNR all the way!!

ArgorokX said:

August 1st, 1:38 pm

I’ve been playing since the beta. Heck, I even bought my PS3 because of anticipation for this game.

Hooligantuan said:

August 1st, 1:38 pm

MNR is pretty sweet. I mean, sure, there’s an issue of Original Content player creations vs popular characters, but that’s my worst complaint.

Oh, that an’t not being able to restart the Hot Lap by hitting Select. It should be a total reset for Hot Lap, because one mistake and your time is shot. Sucks having to finish the lap after you know your time is blown.

spideridol said:

Awesome AgrorokX !

have another code?

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 1:47 pm

Yeah I remember the beta, had it’s limitations, but it didn’t stop players from making amazing creations!

All the codes work. Some are for SCEA, SCEE and SCEU.

Have fun!

Hey Spideridol What DLC you’ve got?

dancinglights800 said:

August 1st, 1:57 pm

Hey Mark, Can u post another code? i missed all of them, please!

spideridol said:

August 1st, 1:57 pm

From the codes…. I received one DLC, and it was the new Stowaway mod and kart.

atheistsw said:

August 1st, 1:58 pm

Hi Mark,

Thanks so much for picking my Invasion: Aftermath as TOTW, looks like you had as much fun racing it as I had making it, it’s definitely one of my favourite tracks from recent times, also, that first pic with the alien mothership in the background – EPIC!

Also, Sunday’s hotlap by PH1LThy31 – Death Valley Oasis is absolutely perfect for hotlap, it’s such a wonderfully smooth course and great fun as it relies on old-school race skills to succeed, will certainly be giving it my best shot to record a solid time!

Also, you did mention the Team Track’s would be top tracks on the forums, I take it you mean next week instead?

Keep up the great word man!

    Yes. 8 8 11

    Your welcome on the TOTW! VERY deserved!

    Great track, better story!

Is that 2nd code not SCEA?

1st Code is Nukular again and it worked, but I backed out of it cuz I had ‘im.

moriarty1975 said:

@67

2nd code is for Europe. Papercut mod/kart (NOT redeemed yet!)

spideridol said:

August 1st, 2:14 pm

Oil Stain launches tomorrow…. not Stowaway. Stowaway is a limited release submarine and mod

Elnath10 said:

Free giveaway DLC codes!! Oh my god! I missed that!

Genomicinsight said:

August 1st, 2:19 pm

I just missed it too.

Genomicinsight said:

August 1st, 2:20 pm

missed getting one of the codes.

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 2:22 pm

Mark, could you post some soon… Like really soon? I have to leave to take my permit test, and if I answer as if I was the mod I am now, I would do horribly, so I need a new, better mod, to answer em correctly.
Thanks!! :)

Bobzilla26 said:

August 1st, 2:30 pm

NOoooooo I have to go

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 2:44 pm

Ok I’ve got a question about the Stowaway Mod and Kart. I have a feeling this has been answered but will the Stowaway Mod and Kart let you use the parts from the Mod and Kart to make your own creations?

EvilJerk said:

August 1st, 2:45 pm

Any NA DLC chances into the evening today or any other day for us 9 to 5ers?

Also any chance we may get a tricorn hat with DLC? I can’t recall seeing one last I thought to use one.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Stowaway. I’ve had a mod in mind I could pair with a sub for a long time now.

Elnath10 said:

August 1st, 2:47 pm

Hi Mark

you should make the Free giveaway DLC post of the codes like your predecessor did

for example:

Kratos Codes:
AAAA-BBBB-AAAA
AAAA-BBBB-CCCC
AAAA-BBBB-EEEE
DDDD-BBBB-AAAA
AAAA-EEEE-AAAA

I mean, telling us for what DLC they are. Just a suggest

    Mark Wilson said:

    August 1st, 3:00 pm

    So far people are not using codes for DLC they already have. Since a Stowaway Mod / Kart may be somewhere in the mix over the next few months we want to make it a hunt. Get it? Stowaway? :)

spideridol said:

August 1st, 2:51 pm

Wouldn’t be “Random” if he let us know what they are… just a thought.

@ 76 Yes, you can use the parts from the Stowaway.. I’m doing it right now. :)

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 2:54 pm

Yeah I think it would be better like Elnath 10 said you guys did with the pre-order PS Mods and Karts on the blog last time. But then again, it wouldn’t make them so random and ruin the surprise.

But at least it’ll make people like me know if it’s some mod & kart they might have already bought, so they don’t end up getting a code for something they’ve already gotten, so it doesn’t go to waste.

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 2:57 pm

Ok cool thanks for the info spideridol, I had a feeling that’s who you got. Congrats on that. ;)

Also sorry for the double post.. unless someone else posted before this…

Mist_Shark said:

August 1st, 2:59 pm

is there any other way to get Stowaway?

    Mark Wilson said:

    August 1st, 3:02 pm

    Yes, there will be more ways to attain him. Check this blog, and our Facebook page the next few months for more info. Good luck!

@80

After you enter the code it’ll say what it is. If you have the DLC already don’t click the redeem button.

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 3:04 pm

Ok thanks moriarty 1975.

Thanks for the Stowaway Mr.Wilson! ;)

TheAlbraskan said:

August 1st, 3:20 pm

That one went pretty quick

Hooligantuan said:

August 1st, 3:21 pm

Aw man, Stowaway??

I hit three Nukulars and didn’t redeem ’em, and man dang, Stowaway? Arrghh.

Was it even an SCEA Stowaway? Arrrrgh.

moriarty1975 said:

August 1st, 3:23 pm

@92

It was a SCEE code.

Hooligantuan said:

August 1st, 3:23 pm

It seems like all the SCEA codes are dang ol’ Nukular.

EvilJerk said:

August 1st, 3:34 pm

@94 I think Nukular was set to be pre-order DLC for GameCrazy, but they shut down before the game’s release, so there’s possibly a large number of unused codes already generated for it.
