ModNation Monday: The 12 Hours of “Le Mod”

Join the members of the San Diego Studio ModNation Racers team for a day of racing (8am-8pm PST) on Saturday, October 8th for the First Annual ModNation Racers24 12 Hours of Le Mod”!

This is a great opportunity to race many of the best user created tracks ModNation has to offer alongside members of the MNR team. Who knows…you might just walk away with a win in your pocket and the bragging rights that go with that!

Look for ModNationSD in your local Modpsot throughout the day.

Note – The International Federation of Fictional Kart Racing Federations requires us to take frequent “personal time” breaks and at least two carbo-load sessions to make it through this event safely.

Don’t Be So Skeptical, Double XP Week Coming Soon!
The Modnation community is continually asking us questions such as… are Biff and Gary wearing any pants behind their commentators’ booth?… if I set off a mine on myself would anybody notice? …is the world still flat?… does this sticker make my mod’s butt look big? And our favorite – will there ever be another Double XP week in MNR?

So in observance of International Skeptics Day on October 13th we offer this to you… double XP from October 10th – 17th. So loosen up a little, shrug off those woes and worries because you at least have this to believe in!

Top Tracks:
You would really be missing out on some great tracks if you only raced upon good old “terra firma”. These tracks will keep your head in the clouds for a long time. Check them out in this week’s Top Tracks section in the ModSpot.


ModNation Player Profiles: Stitchless
Currently one of the game’s more prolific Mod / Kart designers, Stitchless blends his keen eye for color and detail with an uncanny look into the future of “Modkind”. We really enjoy how he melds his creation theme across his matching Mod and Kart combos. Read more about Stitchless HERE.

Creations of the Week
Let’s admit it, some days we all wake up a little dazed and confused (me more than most people) and some days’ events leave us a little dumfounded (again, probably me more than most people), but the moment I came across the “APOLLO (reflection)” Mod seen below I found myself transformed into a big, giggling, messy, smiley, drooling, “*mod-paranoid” mess of a human being.


*Mod-Paranoia (mawhd-par-uh-noi-uh) noun. origin 2010 modnation
When a mirrored image of a mirrored image on a mod creation is so realistic that it compels the viewer to constantly look back over their shoulder to confirm the scene in question is not actually behind them. – no known cure at this time.

Hot Lap Track Of The Week: Phantom Cathedral by prob_alex
Two features that set great tracks like this apart are the use of scale and light. Many great tracks begin as a good track placed into a spectacularly designed environment and visa-versa. Tracks like this incorporate the environment and its structures as part of the track. The cathedral prob_alex has built becomes the track as you drive into, over, and through multiple areas of the structure. Add the appropriate gloomy lighting and atmosphere and you have a track that has evolved from a race to an experience. Wednesday’s track Modina City 3D is also a great example of this motif.
