Openplanet and the Club Edition
On Trackmania, Openplanet will work on all editions, but you will have a limited feature set unless you have the Club Edition. This is a necessary requirement from Nadeo.
There are several reasons for this, but the main reason is that there is potential for piracy, where you could potentially access Standard or Club features on the Starter (or Standard) editions of the game.
It's not likely Nadeo will change this in the near future.
On the Starter and Standard edition, the following limitations apply:
- Only certain plugins will work, such as plugins that ship with Openplanet or signed approved plugins.
- Some plugins will only work on the Standard or Club editions.
- No access to advanced features such as the Nod Explorer.
Get your plugin signed
Get the game
The Starter edition is free, and the Standard and Club editions are paid. You can get the game from both Uplay and Epic Games Store.
- Starter Edition (Uplay) (Free!)
- Standard Edition (Uplay, 1 year)
- Club Edition (Uplay, 1 year)
- Club Edition (Uplay, 3 years)
From Epic Games Store
This will still use Uplay to start the game.
- Starter Edition (Epic Games Store) (Free!)
- Standard Edition (Epic Games Store, 1 year)
- Club Edition (Epic Games Store, 1 year)
- Club Edition (Epic Games Store, 3 years)
Unfortunately, Openplanet might not work on the Chinese version of Trackmania, due to heavy regulation of the in-game user content by the Chinese government.
I haven't tested the Chinese version myself, so it might not work at all.
In the case that it does work, there are heavy limitations on what you can do with Openplanet.
