Hello all.

With the new damage system, we have actors to play the dead bodies so it lays dead on the ground so you can still role-play with it. As of now, unless the player is actually alive (typing still), none of these items can be taken from the actor.

Things players can take from people during robberies:

  • Money: Players can still take money from the player they are robbing, however we are going to allow admins to step in and tell the robber that they can’t take money, if the player is under a certain hour limit. With this being said, you shouldn’t be robbing new players so don’t start arguing with an admin if they tell you not to take the money.
  • Drugs: All types of drugs will still be allowed to be taken from the player you are robbing.
  • Materials: All material types will still be allowed to be taken from the player you are robbing.
  • Weapons: Weapons can be taken, however still restricted in terms of LSPD/LSNN weapons are not to leave LSPD/LSNN hands.
  • Ropes/Rags: Both can still be taken without any restrictions.

Things that can not be taken:

  • Phones/Walkie Talkies: Phones can tend to be very annoying when you try to remember all the numbers, and all the messages etc that the phone contains, if it was stolen from you. To fix this issue, players are no longer allowed to rob phones off each other unless there is an above average role-play reason behind taking the phone. This is the same for the Walkie Talkie.
  • Fake ID’s: Fake ID’s are used in like 90 percent of the actual role-play that is done here on MTG, therefore it can be a bad situation if you lose the ID because of getting robbed. Fake ID’s are not to be taken under any circumstances, if you want one: Get your own
  • Toolkits: Can’t be taken under any circumstances.

"When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
'tis near Halloween."
Happy Halloween everyone!!
This year you will be able to buy & win some rare clothing items. We have added a witch hat and devil mask to all clothing stores. These items are non-VIP items and are only purchasable over the weekend, after that they will be gone until next year. We have also brought back the maze! (/halloweenmaze) if you failed to conquer it last year you will get a second chance at it this year. If you manage to make it to the end of the maze you will be awarded with a unique pair of glasses.

Share the spirit of Halloween by placing a pumpkin on your friends head! players with pumpkins on their head can type /createpumpkins to force a pumpkin on surrounding players (relogging makes it disappear).

Trick or Treating is a big part of Halloween and we didn't think it would be right to celebrate Halloween on samp without it. Crane has scripted in trick or treating! so dress up with your friends and go door to door typing /trickortreat for some special goodies (cooldown is 20 minutes).

There will be many events in-game this weekend. We are giving away up to $100,000 in prizes and Gold VIP so make sure to stick around.

Edit: Congratulations to Deandre Darren for becoming the mayor of Los Santos

Voting for the next mayor of Los Santos has now begun! Here are the two chosen candidates:

Deandre Darren - http://www.mt-gaming.com/index.php?forums/deandre-darren-2016.297/
Joseph Lehmann - http://www.mt-gaming.com/index.php?forums/joseph-lehmann-san-andreas-liberty-party.298/

To cast your vote, head over to city hall and type /castvote (1/2) once inside. Type /listcandidates before voting to make sure you are voting for the correct candidate.

Voting will end on Sunday 23rd October at 17:00 server time.

View this thread for a list of things the player mayor will be able to do: http://www.mt-gaming.com/index.php?threads/ooc-outline-to-the-player-mayor.4559/

The minimum playing hours to cast your vote is 25 hours, with this being said we are not allowing players to vote on alternative accounts. Some players have managed to create many alt accounts while others have dedicated their time to only one. The admin team feel that if we allow players to vote on alt accounts then a handful of players will control a lot more votes than everyone else.

MTG has been mostly a SA:MP Community however over the course of the 5 years we have had different attempts at different servers. Whether you came to MTG because of the Minecraft server, the CS:GO server, the Insurgency server, or even the GMOD server. We are glad that you stuck around with us.

Because MTG has reached once in a life time milestone, we want to give back to the player-base and answer some of your prayers. What do I mean by this? Well, what I mean is over the next few days and coming weeks we have some great ideas for the players to get involved with. However, for now lets focus on the 5th year anniversary.

Some of the major things we have planned are as follows:
-Throughout the day there will be different events with a total sum of money ending at $100'000. The events will range from 5'000 to 10'000.
-Keep an eye out for status' from myself, Risen or Millington for a chance to win some VIP. The VIP we will be hunting for is: x2 Bronze VIP; x2 Silver VIP; x1 Gold VIP.
-There will be a Paycheck boost of 25% for the day.
-VIP will be discounted throughout the week, that's from today until Sunday. You can pick up VIP for cheaper right now!
-6 vehicles will be auctioned off. This means 3 cars for Non-VIPs and 3 for VIP's (The Non-VIP cars will be auctioned off in-game). The cars are:
-We are going to give away a house. This will be a very unique house and will only be available to VIP's to buy. Therefore try and win VIP today or purchase VIP and get bidding! - Pictures: HERE, HERE, HERE...
Hello everyone,

After a long discussion the admin team has decided to no longer allow illegal advertisements to be placed via /ad. This includes the following advertisements:
  • Selling a toy weapon
  • Looking to buy an eagle from the desert
  • Selling some green leaves
  • Have some of my nans' homemade sugar to sell!
And so forth. It was argued in the past that ICly the receptionist of adviz wouldn't be able to cop on to these advertisements being illegal but some of the advertisements being placed are just plain obvious. We want everyone to go and try and meet people in character to sell / buy illegal items (cocaine, pot, speed, materials, weapons).

There are still an endless amount of legal advertisements people can use /ad for. For example:
  • Selling / buying vehicles
  • Selling / buying houses or businesses
  • Mechanic Services
  • Bodyguard Services
  • Taxi Services
  • Requesting deliverers
  • Crowdfunding
  • Hiring for a private organization
The admin team is now going to treat illegal advertisements as non-roleplay and it will result in a kick and warn.
Welcome to the new forums!

It may look a bit different as we have a different, more modern theme. Give it a chance the next couple of days to get used to it, well it's your only option really as at the moment we have no other theme. I'll work towards trying to restore our old one but it will be very difficult.

Other than style, the problem is we have lost all the threads. We have reinstated a lot of admin-related threads, the PD ones(thanks to the PD guys for spending the past days going at it) and that's about it. I know it's hard to lose 4 years worth of memories and even the work you put in with the roleplay you were doing and had threads on the forums for it, but I'm hopeful that if everyone works together we can restore the forums we once had and build new memories.

Users have lost their likes and everything - I understand this will upset a lot of people, but I beg of you to look past the whole community status that comes with likes(which by the way is none but to each their own) and be understanding and just participate on this new chapter.

Over the next few weeks we'll work to restore every admin thread with proper information in them(as some are yet to be completed).

We have spent a lot of time working these past few days to be able to bring back the forums and are very happy with the outcome, so I hope you leave your feedback in what can be improved or if you notice any bug, report it on the forum bugs section.

READ IMPORTANT READ PLEASE:
Let's be respectful as a community and not steal anyones names, if you're caught stealing someones name to impersonate or be funny you will find yourself banned from our forums and the account will be restored to its owner.

ALSO READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT@: For VIPs we will be setting a thread up where you can request your VIP usergroup on the forums. This might take a while to do so please be patient.

I want to thank the admin team for the work done on...
On 23/08/2016 we suffered a breach on our website, which rendered our whole database useless. We tried all day to work on solutions but due to how MySQL works with XenForo, such wasn't possible. All the partial backups we had also didn't work, so we have had to do a fresh install of XenForo.

During the breach, the hacker managed to access our MySQL Database. While it's very unlikely anyones password will be leaked because of this as XenForo uses encrypted passwords and is very hard to crack, I'd advise anyone to change theirs if they were the same ones that they used on our forums.

Over the course of the next week we'll be working on rebuilding our Forums, so user registration will be off. We will keep everyone updated and will definitely open up registrations as soon as possible.

The Admin Team apologizes for any damage done to any users, it was something unexpected and out of our power. I know it'll be hard as we have lost all our threads but I hope everyone understands and sticks with us as we're sticking with MTG and redoing everything.

Thank you.
