Multi Theft Auto (MTA) is an open-source software project that adds full on-line gaming support to Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PC game, in which this functionality is not originally found. It is the first open-source modification that adds a highly customizable network play element to a commercial closed-source single-player PC game.
Developed as an experimental piece of software for earlier Grand Theft Auto series, Multi Theft Auto has become an advanced multiplayer platform for gamers and developers. Our software provides on-line gaming for dozens of players running user-generated gameplay content and scripts through a Lua virtual machine, and is freely distributed under the GPLv3 license.
We recently released MTA:SA 1.0.3 which is currently our most advanced modification to date. Following on from this, we would like to wish you happy holidays. Have a good one and enjoy our Christmas Video.
We also urge anyone who wishes to contribute to vote for us in the ModDB awards!
Ever since we expanded our news and media coverage to communities like Twitter, YouTube, Steam Community and ModDB, we have been working hard in order to make MTA more popular and suitable for every GTASA fan out there. With the recently started ModDB Mod of the Year 2009 Awards, we think this could be a great way for us to gain more publicity, and in result, more players.
If you like our mod, you can show us your support by nominating MTA:SA for this year's awards. We urge anyone who wishes to contribute to click the "Vote for mod" button on our profile page! Thanks for your support.
We certainly have strong competition going in the modding world out there, but with a bit of luck we may all get MTA the popularity it deserves. We also wish all the other mods out there the best of luck!

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas. We love games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
