ModNation Creations of the Week
Amazing creations in ModNation get shared every day and we are playing a ton of them. If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track to be a future "creation" of the week be sure to visit up on the official ModNation Community site and who knows? You might see your handiwork on the PlayStation.Blog.
Mod of the Week
Mod Name: Brain
I don't think I ever want to be as smart as this Mod. His brain is spilling out the top of his dome, and the gaping mouth and googly eyes are quite freaking when I'm in a race and he looks over his shoulder. Good stuff. Weird....but good.
Kart of the Week
Kart Name: Breast Cancer Awareness
The paint job on this puppy is impressive, but the cause is even moreso. You can't not appreciate this Kart.
Track of the Week
If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to ModNation Racer's YouTube channel, email ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com, and we will include them in the blog post if your track is showcased.
Track Name: Elite Carnival
Created by: RockToonz
RockToonz says: "This track will give you five elite obstacles/challenges that will prevent you from racing smoothly. Most of them are new props and will give an experience of a fun and enjoyment... SO i DARE you to race this!!! >: ) Enjoy!!!"
Ramone says: Holy mechanical dinosaur attacks!! This track is awesome! As if perfecting a drift through a gauntlet of fire-spitting, Kart-crunching K-Wreckses weren't enough of a challenge, there's a massive jump that allows for some amazing spins, but only if you can avoid those evil Flaming Pendulum Choppers. Once you're on the ground, you've got to manage some ugly tilting platforms before you can wrap a lap. I think one's fun for both Time Trials and Action Races.
Track Name: Hill House Haunt
Created by: Manlius10A
Manlius10A says: "Unfortunately, I missed the Halloween contest deadline, but this is my Halloween track, which starts as a winding road leading to stately yet ominous mansion. Once under the mansion, the track bends right into a dense and confusing hedge maze.
There are three alternate routes in the hedge maze (all within 2 seconds of each other). The hedge maze paths descend into dark passages and tunnels underneath the estate (custom made). The tunnels open up to a haunted swamp with alligators, shallow marsh waters, and multiple routes. After the swamp, the track finishes in a creepy cemetery!"
Ramone says: Wow, there's a lot to love here. Shortcuts, narrow, winding stretches, a swampy bayou section... What's not to enjoy about this track? I must warn you, though - learn run it a few times before you try to compete on it. When the racing is hot and heavy, it can be easy to get turned around (particularly in the swamp). Good luck on this one, Nation.
Track Name: Altago City
Created by: apricot-jam-IS
Apricot-jam-IS says: "A fun fantasy city track with lots of shortcuts to explore. You will choose between three paths to take near the beginning. All paths will join again later and each has their advantages. Don't forget to take in the beauty of your surroundings as you blaze through the track."
Ramone says: I love how (mostly) wide open this track is. One of the first things you'll run into is a choice between going left or right. A little insider info - Left will send you to some killer drift opportunities, and right will put you on a wild shortcut through some jumps and narrow paths to more jumps and eventually a CRAZY jump from which you can spin to your heart's content. Get all the Boost you can on this one because you're gonna need it. Action? Yep. Pure? Yep. Time Trial? Yep. A good all around track.
