Server is now down.

17 posts in this topic

Went down at 00:09 PST, 15 seconds after I loaded into the server to check if it was still up. You will no longer be able to connect to the online at all.

They wasted no time, I see. At least I got to level 30 in time!!!

It had a good run, about 8 1/2 years. RIP servers. 

I never got to play this one, though it's not the kind I typically like.

It seems to be a new Sony trend that they kill any shutting games at 00:00 PST (where the servers are), hence I checked just after 8am my time. They're really desperate to save any money they can.

Yes. It was always going to work offline. The only way it wouldn't is if they released a firmware update to make the PS3 reject the game loading up somehow. That warning they gave is thoroughly misleading and made by someone with no knowledge of how the game works.

Good to know. Seems i helped my friend in time yesterday. Was a fun game to play and a great journey as well. Thanks to @Conker to help me out with the hosting ones yesterday.

Oh, I for some reason thought they were going down on the 26th. I don't know why but I had that date in my head :(

 

Well I mean i had tons of time to get the trophies but I put it off as I had other stuff I was working on.

 

It was a shame about that game as it was a really fun game just the load times were complete bullshit.

normally i hate kart racers, especially the fake drifting 'turn left & the kart moves to the right' nonsense, but modnation was something else... action, charm, humor, user generated content, cool editors, hub world of players, tips on loading screens, video tutorials, seamless offline/online transitions

 

 

not sure why people expect servers to mysteriously stay up after an announced date, what kind of sloppy employee or server script will randomly do it hours late?

 

now is the lowest player counts in the world, it will be the least disruption, look at any game with graphs, such as steam game charts, either the client or individual games, peak player counts are around noon EST because that's when europe's afternoon is, while right now is when most of the world sleeps or is at work

 

if i remember, MAG shut down at the same time a few years ago, i had japanese people on my team at that point

load times were improved with patches werent they? the modspot also loads much faster offline since it's not trying to load a ton of custom content

I was one of those individuals who was greatly mislead into thinking the game would be rendered completely unplayable after October 10. I have only owned the game since July and was scrambling to get as many trophies as possible. At least I can still finish the campaign. Was never realistically expecting to plat this one.

My game glitched out in December of 2017 making it impossible to publish any creations. This happened after I earned the plat but sadly I missed out on the three "publish a track using x theme". Frustrating that 10 months wasn't enough time for the servers to fix themselves enough to get my creations out of limbo.

 

This game was a lot of fun, trophies aside. I'm sad to see it go.

Been so busy irl that the shutdown slipped my mind for a while, until just this past week. Like getting a message from an old friend you haven't talked to in a long time, only to see that it's an invitation to their funeral. Real shame to see all that user created content and the online tourneys lost to the ages, but I suppose that's how life goes; "nothing gold can stay".

It was fun while it lasted. Rest in peace ModNation servers, you will be missed.

you could have disconnected the internet to see what the game does, but logically it would be strange to have an entire singleplayer unavailable (because it's not an MMO with server simulations)

i dont think that's a glitch, i tried to make a 4chan one, extremely likely triggered some keyword for moderation, but of course nobody is available to moderate

not exactly, it's still on everyone's hard drive that downloaded or created, all we need are backups

 

then insert the content to modded console or emulator

Hey, is ModNation still playable offline?

I find it funny that update 4.83 was made available the same day they closed the game that "won't be playable even offline after shutdown".

I know it's just a coincidence, just wanna confirmation.

It is. When you get to the ModSpot, your car can't move though (at least on the one I checked). But you can access Career / Single Player Race / Split Screen.

 

Also, ModSpot Explorer is unobtainable as a result of the shutdown.
