- This feature is exclusive to the PS3 version of this game.
The ModSpot in GameplayEdit
As players enter the game, they will start in the ModSpot (when updated, this only happens if players select the ModSpot option on startup). The game has a menu, except it is allegedly more fun to drive around in circles and play King of the Hill on the center, which is a rotating platform.
The ModSpot, all together, with the Creation Station and the Race Station are used to navigate through the game if you want. Players can, of course, use a circular QuickMenu, found by pressing start, to access certain places in the ModSpot right away. A ModSpot can be used to communicate with others, find friends, stay up to date, and access the Community.
Navigation through the ModSpot is simple, you can just use regular driving controls to get around. As seen on the Screenshots, players can only drive through it. The ModSpot is a great place to practice driving techniques, such as drifting. To enter places in the ModSpot, players have to drive his or her Kart into the pre-defined markings.
Top Creations Edit
The Top Mods and Karts will be placed on those podiums and shown to everyone in the ModSpot. You can gain votes for your creations, by sharing them with the Community. By doing so, people all over the globe can vote, comment, and even remake your creation (if permitted), granting you a score for it. The top 3 scoring Mods and Karts will be shown here.
Most Downloaded Edit
There are several video walls in the Modspot, keeping you up to date, or telling you which Tracks, Mods and Karts are the most downloaded ones. You can also inform yourself about upcoming events, and the Showcase Series.
Race Station Edit
In the Race Station, you can choose options for racing against AI Opponents, other online players, or even split screen action. In the full version of the game, there will be Career Mode, which is not accessible in the exclusive Beta yet, so there is only plenty of Information about this. In an interview with William, he announced the 2, 3, and 4 Player Splitscreen, which is not available in this Beta either. Other Racing Games had this idea before, but what is new about Split Screen Action? In ModNation Racers, you can race against other online players, while playing in split screen mode. But there this is still not all. You can also race a quick race and let the computer choose the best game for you, or you can choose the ideal online game by yourself.
Creation Station Edit
The Creation Station is the creation "hub" of ModNation Racers. Here you can make your imagination go wild. You're also able to create new Tracks with the Track Studio, Mods with Mod Studio, and Karts with Kart Studio.
The Share Station is located here, where you can publish up to between thirty and seventy creations to the Servers where the Community can download and Remix them if you give permission to do so. You can browse for new creations made by others, and you can download, Remix, and rate creations you used.
ModSpot Finish Line Edit
This is the place where you enter your game. You can choose another Kart or another Mod if you don't like your current one anymore. Of course, you have the choice between pre-made content, Selfmade Content, and your Downloaded Content. When you have finished your customization, you can begin racing around in the Modspot, meet Friends, find new friends, play online, and get informed about upcoming events and the top rated Mods and Karts. You can also enter the Creation Station from the Modspot, which obviously allows you to create new content.
