ModNation Rockin’ The Party and This Party Don’t Stop

You have to admit this has been a one rippin’ great summer to be a member of the ModNation!

…and most recently the “name your next favorite game” event (see last week’s blog)

We have a lot more events in store for you in the months to come leading up to the release of ModNation Racers on the PlayStation Vita. We can’t wait to get our hands on that baby, but trust us – you’ll have plenty to do until then!

Hey, if you have an idea for a fun MNR event let us know HERE. The more ideas the better!

ModNation Team Track Challenge II – Are You In? (again!)
The last team track challenge was a roaring success so we are doing it again! 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 3-4 track creators to work together on building their united track.

If you want to join in the fun look HERE for more details and to sign up.

Hot Lap Tracks:

Saturday: Budget Deficit Crisis by manlius10a (well played sir, well played)
Sunday: Eden Vale Office Park by atheistsw (Wow! atheistsw can even turn a depressing office park into a fun race. How does he do it?)

Party on ModNation, party on!

  • I feel like I’m never going to get Stowaway

  • Dear SCEE, Europe wants the Oil Stain Mod & Kart on the store asap, much love, moriarty.

    ;)

  • So we write down the codes and then exit the game to try and type it in as fast as we can?

  • am I first?

  • No I wasnt XD

    anyway, very cool the Haunted DLC parts pack, but I still believe that it has to come something for karts and mods for each parts pack, for doing proper characters for the that. Like the oil stain

    keep the good work

    p.s i will never have a chance for those free codes =(

  • It’s amazing what these other creators can come up with. I thought I was good, but then I just get schooled by these other guys! Great Job!

  • Is there a possibility of a night racing expansion pack? I love night racing, and I think it would go perfect with the Haunted Parts Pack.

  • Probably not. You might have to build big “caves” like prob_alex. They are very cool!

  • Ok, I always wondered how they made those caves, I’ll make sure to check his stuff out.

  • Hello Mark, It seems that you guys developed for us a lot of DLC costumes, Which i really liked. But, We need more famous costumes Like, For example: Toy story, Infamous etc.

    Are you currently looking to develop these kinds of DLC packs?

    Also, Is there any possibility to develop move support for Modnation Racers? Developing move support will entice a lot of people to Modnation Racers as people are suffering a lack of move games these days.

    -Thank you.

  • Awesome!! this will be great for halloween! wow the summer went fast. you know batman arkham asylum? do you have any news on batman arkham city? (if you know)

  • Can we get a hearse kart with a tombstone seat & a boiling witch pot engine & spider rims?
    I’m dieing for a hearse kart. btw I work 9am – 6pm eastern standard time tomorrow..will I miss out on the dlc?

  • Hey mark, great hot lap choices,Alex deserves TOTW,the rest are great too!

    I also was thinking of editing my track slippery splashdown, yet seeing as no-one has submitted their waterparks I assume i can, also do I get a prize for being first to submit their track….stowaway maybe… *wink wink* =D

    Have you checked out my track Acardia Nova, I hope you like it, was it too late for this weeks hot lap or lacking?

    Oh where are the Mod and Kart of the week!? Did you forget…

  • I thought the Team Track Challenge was meant for the professional creators? I don’t want to end up being a hindrance to anyone on the team.

    • Just the opposite! …

      “Are you new to track creation and want to learn from AND work with the best?”.

      They enjoy it as much as you will!

  • Glad to see you guys still supporting the community.

    How exactly will the codes be given out tomorrow? Private messages? Please respond as I need that Stowaway DLC!

  • When are you guys going to announce the name for the Vita game?

  • Sorry for spamming, lol but when you said never assume did you mean about editing my track ( to solve a glitch) or about stowaway?

    last post I promise, :’)

  • when is the GotY edition coming out?

  • so….can we get a Hearse kart?

  • Hey did you guys pick the name for the Vita game yet? I thought my idea was pretty good. I’d love to have the feeling that I made a big contribution to something thats growing so strong.

    Modnation Racers: VITALITY

  • @23 I’m sure you’ll be missed.

  • Oh I hope I run into you Mark when you are giving out a Stowaway! I have EVERY DLC character & when I saw CougarHunter driving in that Kart w the Mod at at the ModStop…I was like…I WANT IT…WHERE DO I GET IT?
    Then he gave me the bad news…..So, Ill be lookin for you! ;)

  • Modnation Racers has some amazing events its never been better to part of this games community, thanks guys!
    I have put my name down for the Team Track Challenge as you know so can’t wait for that :)

    Mark do you know what time your going to be dropping DLC?

  • Hey I was hopeing for Tome Stone parts in pack ? Also I wish someone send me Image or something the reason I was banned in first place ? Well anyway i hope you guys fix PSN USERS that keeps Glitching outside map and knocking over TopMod’s Karts everyday “Really Hard to used report tool when it dos not work at all” :( Hint of a Jerk that cant be report for glitching or publishing those Karts Japannese Accounts :) so hey glitchers create one today also get in on beta’s

  • @23 Why smash up a perfectly good piece of hardware? Let us know how you feel a few months from now, considering you won’t be able to play anything like Modnation Racers, Uncharted 3, Gran Turismo, InFamous, Resistance, Killzone 3, Socom 4, MAG, Warhawk, Starhawk, PSN Exclusives, PS1 Classics, or be able to play Blu-ray movies, or have free online gaming, and the list goes on, and on, and on…

  • JNM-CIM: Look up my profile (MagicalHamster.) I have a track called “Dark Sky Template”. In that track I’ve blocked out the sky with dark grey bricks and mountains. It’s remixable so you can use that for night-ish tracks. It has a few limits, in that it uses alot of your prop budget, and that if you go high enough there’s a point where the sun can peak through the ceiling and the mountains — but it’s worth a look. : )

  • @29 That sounds awsome! I’ll make sure to download it and check it out. I never thought about saving a track as a template, pretty smart.

  • Has the giveaway ended yet?

    I just came back home from the office, I’m looking for this MNR_FIND_ME person but I don’t see it.

    Help please?

  • Were there no mods good enough for Mod of the Week?

    :/

  • After roaming Modspots most of the day I found MNR_FIND_ME twice (first time I lost connection) and was waiting in anticipation, but didn’t get a code…was very disappointed. :(

    At least the friend next to me got one.

  • I could’ve stayed home instead of going to work today…

    Will we get another opportunity to get this DLC if we missed it?

  • I had Mod Nation Racers on it’s release day, and basically, the online mode was just full of mods that look like pop culture things like spider man and the scooby doo wagon, etc… nothing creative, just disappointing pop culture stuff. Plus all the tracks were, for the most part, just designs intended to be an easy way to get all the trophies.

    Oh yes, and the ridiculous load times.

    Not to mention people who could cheat and get 2 second laps on tracks, making leaderboard competition impossible.

    I traded in the game for credit at Gamestop.

    So tell me, guys… has the game’s online mode improved at all? Is the mod scene actually cool, or is it still just mindless? I really love the idea of this game, but it was so frustrating and disappointing with the load times and cheating… is it truly better now than before?

  • I was at the Modspot all day & was about to give up & exit out when I saw MNR_FIND_ME was on the players list!

    Rushed over & found him! YEA! Thank you for the DLC! It made my average day EXCELLENT! I was very happy….I never win anything so it was very exciting for me.

    Many Thanks!

  • No sign of the Oil Stain DLC in todays E.U store update. Maybe next week?…or the week after?…or the week after that….?

    :(

  • Got a reply from the (stand-in) SCEE store overlord about the Oil Stain DLC :

    “It will be coming but I don’t have an ETA yet, sorry.”

  • @37 – Tsk, tsk, don’t forget, they have to localize the content for over 20 countries… oh wait, nevermind, there can be no good excuse for that one!

  • Thanks for the answer Mark, however I’d like to make a suggestion.

    Would it be possible to extend the giveaways or make two of them (one during the day and one during the night)??? Or even make them on a weekend or something like that??

    I say this because there’s some people (including me) that have jobs and cannot be all day trying to find the person giving way the DLC, and in fact this Tuesday I came home earlier than other days, so if I arrived home in at a normal timing, I wouldn’t have participated on this.

    Also, in my case I live with my girlfriend and she does love ModNation Racers just as I do, or even more than I do, but we both have jobs, so there’s no one at home during the day…

    Please take us in consideration, that’s it. :)

    Thanks!
