We are constantly chatting around the offices at how amazing your creations CONTINUE to be. We draw great pleasure from your “outside-the-box” creations like floating city islands, lava flows made from trucks and balloons, motorcycles made out of kart parts, etc… This is why our ModNation Palooza is truly a celebration. It’s all about Racing, Creating and Sharing. This game was made for you the ModNation to enjoy, and it seems enjoy you definitely have! #modnation #forthewin!

MNR Palooza Week Four
We are absolutely loving this fun celebration of the 2 million creations milestone and there is much, much more to come! Here are a few of this week’s events…
ModNation Keyword Creation Spotlight: (please don’t) “Send In the Clowns”
We thought it would be fun to visually celebrate a taste of the two million plus creations with a little keyword search exercise. Little did we know just HOW much stinkin’ fun it would be! Here is but a sample of what we found while looking around for clowns. I’m amazed at how crazy and diverse the search results were. Take a look for yourself…
- Circus Clown by Mutard
- Booger the Clown by SaintHallows
- Ghetto the Clown by NeON_420
- Death Party Clown by cheece
- Pie Face Clown by abear247
- Monster Clown Dude_Rocker1
- Killer clown by panFillo-2011
- Clown Murderer by Dinfecs
- Clown freek by panFillo-2011
- Circus Mod by Dkjolle
- smirko by oanw
- tip the clown by SixGorillas
Mark: “I have never had much of an issue with clowns until I performed this keyword search. I now vow to keep all family members, kids and adults away from our local big top. I need to go look for images of flowers or clouds or puppies, ANYTHING to get these guys out of my head.”
Next week’s keyword will be ’Scary.’
If you come across any scary mods or karts that you’d like to share, please post them on our Facebook page. Include the creation title and creators name. We’d love to see them!
ModNation “Team Track Challenge”
Are you new to track creation and want to learn from AND work with the best? Are you one of “the best” and want to impart your “MNR wisdom” on the newbies? Well this is the event for you. We will randomly be putting together teams of 4-5 track creators to work together on building their united track… this is true collaboration! Think of it… creators from all over the globe working on a track together! …goose bumps!
If you want to join in the fun, see more details and sign up here.
ModNation Player Profile:
This issue we continue a new feature to highlight dedicated members of the ModNation Community. These profiles will feature both top creators as well as MNR’s top racers. We hope you enjoy reading about some of the best in the ModNation community.
This week we spotlight one of ModNation Racers’ most prolific track creators as well as one of the “geniuses” behind creating floating city tracks, skyscraper-size dinosaurs, MNR track artwork (see the Honorable Mention below) and many other unbelievable creations!

What inspires you?
I aspire to inspire others…
Who are your favorite creators and creations? (Tracks, Mods, Karts)
My favorite creators are laidbackcat, athiestsw, Bongsoldier and its2l84that. I find their tracks interesting to look at but at the same time very fun to race. Bongsoldier – “Another World” had me scratching my head for ages trying to figure out how he created that track!! There are many, many more great creators out there, many of whom don’t get the recognition they deserve.
What are your favorite creations? (Tracks, Mods, Karts)
My favorite track I have created is “Battle of Port Duisburg.” I spent many hours on the design and layout making sure the two separate paths were near enough the same distance. I’m also …

ModNation Fun Races
Monday, March 28th ModNation Fun Races. We continue to bring you these series of races during the “palooza” season. These are some great people to race with and possibly add to your growing PSN friends list (sign up here). Who knows? You might get a mention in the next section. Segway…
“So Many Races, So Little Time”
It may only be the proverbial “tip of the iceberg” but we MUST give props where major props are due. Moving forward into “MNR palooza” we will be featuring the top Race XP earners from previous weeks. The stats will reflect Race XP (experience points) earned in ModNation races. Look for these premium racers in an XP race soon and see if you have what it takes to compete with the very best!
Race XP for March 13th – 19th

“Creations of the Week”
If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track for consideration as “Creation of the Week”, please visit us on the official ModNation Community site and who knows, you might see your hard work on the PlayStation ModNation Monday blog or in-game on the Hot Lap section of the Modspot. You never know what “catches our fancy”
“Track of the Week”
Enchanted Valley by spinviper83
spinviper83 says: “The track design is inspired by an enchanted theme. Comes with a castle, fountains, waterfalls, shady woods with branching paths, and plenty of valleys and jumps.”
Mark smiles: spinviper83 taught me something new about the “ins and outs” of track creating. As listed above this track contains pretty much “all the bells and whistles”, “the kitchen sink” as well as “the whole enchilada” and yet spinviper83 uses these elements wisely, creatively, and playfully in designing a track that is both beautiful and enjoyable from beginning to end. The transitions for each track section (story) make sense and I looked forward to each of them with every proceeding lap.
I learned that when creating with passion and forethought you CAN create a wonderful track with many, many varied elements and items. Enchanted Valley is not overly complex and that is part of its appeal. You would have a hard time convincing many in the ModNation community that this was not a “pack in” track. Thank you spinviper83, I really enjoyed the ride (after ride, after ride…).
Hot Lap Tracks of the Week (available to race in game at the Hot Lap billboard in the ModSpot)
“Mod & Kart of the Week”
The detail on this Bumble Bee themed Kart is stunning. You will have to download this creation to see for yourself things like the tiny bumble bees on the headlights and the honeycomb paintjob just to name a few. “Gah-or-jus”. Great job takila101! Show us some more!
Mark: I heard prob_alex was working on something special and when I saw his post online for this track I scrambled to my PS3 for some potential “drool-time”. Seconds off the start I said to myself, “YEP! This is going to be something special, let’s see just what he did”. When the first special moment arrived I LITERALLY leapt from my chair, and found myself babbling (in my padded “office”) OMG! OMG! OMG! Needless to say, after settling down from my weekly MNR “fit” my co-workers now seem more worried about my sanity than they were only days before. Oh well. They were going to find out sooner or later.
You’ll just have to play prob_alex’s moddotcom track to see what blew all of us away. Get ready to hit the pause button on your controller and get your MNR in-game camera ready!
Final comment: “prob_alex, most people don’t even possess the talent to draw (or trace for that matter) a picture of Tag yet you somehow nailed it using MNR props, UNBELEIVABLE!”
prob_alex… The ModNation and I salute you!
Well there you have it… the ModNation at is best. Racing, Creating and Sharing. Like I said in the introduction… ”this is why this game was made, for you the ModNation to enjoy, and it seems enjoy you definitely are!”
Keep it up. Have fun!
Loves me some ModNation!
