Features

Clubs in Trackmania offer many features for communities, clans and esports organisations. Here you can find all they have to offer.

Privacy

Clubs offer three levels of privacy:

  • Public - Open to everyone: This makes your club join-able by everyone
  • Private - Accept requests: This lets people send membership requests - you have to approve members manually
  • Private: This makes the club private and no more people can send join requests. Use this while setting things up.

Member roles

In Clubs, there are several member roles which define the permissions of what that specific member can do in the club. See the table below to see what each role allows you to do within a club.

They are normal players and are not counted as members of the club.

Car skins

Privacy settings: Public / Private

Clubs allow communities to provide the public or their members the ability to change their car skins to provided ones.

Each club comes with a skin activity that allows club members and above to upload car skins, that can then either be set to only be available for club members or for the general public.

Map uploads

Privacy settings: Public / Private

The map upload activity allows club members to share their latest maps with other club members before releasing them publicly via club campaigns or third-party sites like Trackmania Exchange.

Club campaigns

Privacy settings: Public / Private

This feature allows users to share their own campaigns comprised of up to 25 maps with the public or with other club members. 
Club campaigns feature leaderboards similar to Nadeo's Seasonal Campaigns or the Track of the Day.

News articles

Privacy settings: Public / Private

Clubs feature the possibility to create news articles, these can contain images as well.

Club rooms

Privacy settings: Public / Private

Club rooms are probably the main selling point of clubs. They are what allows you to host dedicated servers and gives Standard and Club Access players access to online servers that aren't only running Nadeo's maps.

There are three different ways to set up a club room:

  • Club rooms: Those are servers hosted by Nadeo, similar to lobbies in Trackmania Turbo
  • Dedicated servers: Those are your typical Dedicated Servers, which can be hosted on your local computer or a server.
  • Club campaigns: Lets you create a club room based on a club campaign.

Customization

Clubs can be customized to make them stand out - this customization also applies to club campaigns and club rooms and can even be used on Dedicated Servers.
