A mood is a feature which plays an important part in the luminosity and lightning of an environment.
Impact on gameplay
Moods were first introduced in TrackMania Sunrise. They make it possible to bring more diversity in environments of play. When changing the mood, the ambient light will be entirely changed, thus making the map look different. In some moods, the only thing illuminating the circuit are lights from the cars and the track.
It should be noted that moods do not affect the physics in the gameplay, but they can sometimes give players more difficulty in distinguishing the track according to the mood. The only thing that exploits is perception.
