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.

  • Customizable vehicle variants meaning that you can now spawn vehicles with different parts attached.
  • Ability to replace weapon and pedestrian models.
  • Updated SQL system with integrated MySQL support.
  • Synchronized SWAT ropes
  • Water visible through vehicle windows
  • Threaded server for better performance and ultra smooth sync
  • LOD models with 5 times longer draw distance
  • ... and many more features!

You can get a downgrader from the forums, or just use the 1.0 exe if you can get hold of it.

I've been out of MTA: SA for quite a while, and yet it's getting better and better!

I'm quite surprised it's just less than a year from 1.1 that this mod is released!! I would go back to the game soon enough. Oh yeah and I also voted your mod too :D
