The Day mood is often considered the default mood, having been featured in every game of both series. It is the most luminous mood and has the sharpest colours. Headlights and lamps are turned off.
When TrackMania Sunrise was released, the enlightenment was completely redone. The sun is no longer at the zenith of the sky, but the enlightenment became more realistic. This version was transferred onto TrackMania Original.
