I was pleasantly surprised by what a half hour walk at lunch could provide as “fodder” for my first batch of Mod Postcards. A quick jaunt outside the campus revealed some perfect, yet unexpected photo opportunities. A putting mini-green? High-rise window washers?… Couldn’t have planned it better!
Of course, I knew at least one of the stops on my mini-Road Trip would be well… ummmmm… uhhhh… yep, a restroom (don’t even try to tell me you wouldn’t do the same). Shortly after snapping a few shots in the “loo” I found myself being escorted back to my desk by security, where I began to fiddle with my new favorite feature of ModNation Racers: Road Trip (http://eu.playstation.com/psn/games/detail/item376184/?WT.mc_id=PDC_blog_g) – Mod Postcards! As you can tell from the images below, I had a really good time unleashing my mod-creativity (read as insanity) and must admit I had a difficult time holding back a few dozen chuckles, snorts and smirks! If my co-workers didn’t already think I am a dufus, they do now!
You really have to give Mod Postcards a try. Get up, get out and you’ll be surprised what you’ll come up with. It’s very simple (yet surprisingly powerful) and it’s another great way to express your Mod creativity.

Please take some time and share with us what you come up with in Mod Postcards!

I’ll be posting more as time goes on. Let’s see what you can do. I know I for one can’t to see them!
(tip – I highly advise an EMPTY restroom. It cuts down on the number of people wanting to punch you!)

ModNation Racers: Road Trip – Developers Tip #3 “If At First You Don’t Succeed”
So many great themes to work with in the track studio, yet if you are anything like me (I hope not for your sake) you just can’t decide which to choose. Don’t fret, you’ll find your groove by experimenting with quick-changing themes of your tracks. Myself, I happen to be a Jungle Theme man. I’m decent at making tracks with other themes but my go-to, my inspiration, my muse is in the jungle!
Three tracks (listed below) were created by a MNR team member all using the same layout / spline. Track Themes were then switched using different props and set pieces. Download them and see for yourself what a change of scenery can do to produce the track you are looking for.
