Cars: Mater-National - PCS3 Edition is a mod created by me: Yoshiman716, for the PC version of Cars: Mater-National Championship. The mod is completed and is no longer being worked on.

The mod is also being ported to Xbox 360 by Codename470 and will hopefully be released sometime in the near future.

About this mod

The general goal of the mod is to turn the PC version of the game into the PlayStation 3 version. Almost everything from MN PS3 has been ported over to the PC version, aside from a few minor things that can't be ported or don't work correctly due to hard code errors within MN PC.

Version 1.0

Version 1.0 was released on the 20th of September, 2018. It achieved the mod's general goal and covered all of its necessities.


Version 1.1

Version 1.1 was released on the 28th of September, 2018. It made every character that partake in the game's events playable, and added Relay Races for Fillmore's Nature Preserve, North Willy's Butte, Inside the Turkey, Rustbucket Grand Prix, The Upper Mine, and Canyon Run. It also fixed some minor bugs and made some other minor adjustments to improve the general experience.


Version 1.1.1

Version 1.1.1 was released on the 5th of October, 2018. It improved on some of the non-playable-characters-made-playable by fixing some of their minor issues (adding boost animations, missing particles, etc.), and made some other minor adjustments to improve the general experience.
