- SCEA San Diego Studios Community Manager Ramone Russell
has shared details today on the ModNation Racers PS3 patch update and community picks.
To quote: Patch Info
- I know everybody wants to know more about the patch that's in development. We appreciate your patience as UFG places the final touches on it.
There's been a lot of community feedback and I think UFG
has done a good job trying to include a lot of the improvements you've asked for. One of the improvements is the addition of a "casual" career difficulty that has less "aggressive" computer-controlled racers.
I was able to spend some time last week playing the new build. Let me just say that I had a blast playing through the casual career difficulty and I think those that have been asking for this will be very pleased when you can get your hands on it!
ModNation Racers 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 handy work on the PlayStation.Blog.
Mods of the Week
Mod Name: "Billiard Bob"
Karts of the Week
Kart Name: "Transilvania Vehicle"
Tracks of the Week
Track Name: "Bay Island Final"
Created by: Yika
Yika says: "This track was originally intended to be a tribute to my favorite Studio Ghibli Film, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
, but the more I worked on it, the more it took on a life of its own! And I am glad it did!
I feel I made a track which is simply beautiful. Open it up in the editor to see how unique and detailed it is. The track itself runs fairly well, offering multiple routes with advantages and disadvantages. The road never gets boring, but there is never too much going on either."
Track Name: "The Farmer's Daughter"
Created by: Coty4803
Coty4803 says: "An intricately farm themed track featuring one great shortcut through the farm's barn. You can choose to take the main path over the barn which features two jumps; one over the barn and another over a dump truck. Drifting skill and precise driving are necessary to achieve fast lap times."
