Mod of the Week
Mod Name: Novacayne
Comment: Awesome creation! Looks like a space marine to me.
Kart of the Week
Kart Name: Ace of Diamonds
Comment: Name says it all!
Track of the Week
If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to MNR's YouTube channel, [email protected]
, and we will include them in the blog if your track is showcased.
Track Name: Elite Festival
Created by: RockToonz
RockToonz says: This Track is a Thanksgiving gift for the ModNation community. The new Carnival props are awesome, and I think only the ticket boot prop is not included in my track. If you want a Bowling Game this is the track for you! This is very good for action races hope you like it all.
Ramone says: This track makes great use of the carnival pack and really has the feel of a state fair. The track is so awesome it's in the Hot Lap Roster this week as well.
Track Name: Drillbit's Const. Yard
Created by: Manlius 10A
Manlius 10A says: In celebration of my track Wildcard's Stadium making track of the week this week, I decided to submit my second track of the stunt series. This is another simple yet fun track that offers plenty of earthen jumps, intersection points, traps, and mod bots without being cluttered. Last I checked this track had a solid five stars in-game (after a good amount of plays and downloads as well), so this may be my best track yet! Enjoy!
Ramone says: Manlius 10A's Wilcard Stadium track was awesome enough that we decided to put another one of his creations in the track showcase for this week. Make sure to check out Drillbit's Construction Yard, it's another well balanced track and the traps are a nice touch.
