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!
