Hello, thar!
Server Update (28/03/2018)


It's been a while but we're still alive; gamemode updates have been put on the server.








Fighting Style, Gym & Boxing





Fighting styles are no longer reserved for premium members; now anyone can get any fighting style, including the the one with very high damage, knee-head. Every character now has a fitness level which can be increased in the gym.

You can use the treadmill (/gym treadmill) and follow the instructions on the screen or join the boxing right and have a fight against another player, 1v1. (/gym boxing)

In every gym activity your fitness level increases. Every paytime, your fitness level decreases by 10. Premium members only lose 5 fitness level per paytime.
You can select your desired fighting style (/gym fightstyle) but in order to keep it you must keep your fitness level high enough; so go to the gym regularly.










Improved paintball lobbies



Paintball lobby creators may now change the map immediately and allow players in the lobby to use c-bug, for those who prefer that.

Fake IM and You
A quick announcement outlining what may get you banned from our servers, in regards to playing on fake/copied IM servers.
- Staff Members (admins/helpers)
- Faction Leaders
- Faction Tier 1 Members (or equal to)

This is to emphasize that we do not tolerate communities copying our portal, forum, gamemode, maps and such features.
This does NOT mean you are not allowed to play on other servers, but servers that clearly mimic Italy Mafia will not be tolerated.

If you want to open your own community, feel free to do so - but ask if you want to know if you are violating this previously unwritten rule.

Giftboxes
It's time to start hunting gift boxes again!

Santa is dropping gift boxes all over San Andreas. Time for you to locate and unwrap them.


There's money, number changes, name changes and vehicles for you to find in gift boxes. (sorted by chance, decreasing)
The majority of players preferred the way giftboxes were available a few years ago - which is why we are bringing this fun method of hunting them back.


It's time to get your ass on a fast car, bike or helicopter and be the first to open the a gift box before somebody else does it.

Use "/giftboxes" to find the currently spawned giftboxes: You will see their location name and your distance to them.
Use "/giftbox" near a giftbox to open it. Once opened, it will dissappear immediately and will not be available for others to open.
You can also use "/giftbox" to easily locate the closest giftbox near you. (No need to spam /giftboxes)

You can open at most one giftbox every 7 minutes. (5 minutes if a premium member)

No shooting/killing players is allowed to prevent them from opening giftboxes, or you will be punished for deathmatching.

The giftboxes will contain, including the respective chance:
85% -> $20k - $80k
11% -> $30k - $350k
1% -> 1 Namechange
1% -> 1 Numberchange
1% -> 1 Random Vehicle (Landstalker, Buffalo, Infernus, Washington, Premier, Admiral, Turismo, PCJ-600, Sanchez, ZR-350, Elegant, FCR-900, Slamvan, Clover, Yosemite, Tornado, Stafford)
0.5% -> 1 permanent accessory slot
0.25% -> 1 permanent house slot
0.25% -> 1 permanent business slot

Questions you may have:
- Yes, you will receive cars even if you do not have any remaining car slots left.
- No, we cannot change the random vehicle model you received - it's a random gift after all, not your choice.
- No, we cannot change your number- to a namechange or vice versa - it's a random gift after all, not your choice.

Have fun hunting!
