It has a cops and robbers theme - you can play as a cop or civilian/robber and change at any time. You can also own houses, own and sell items at businesses, buy car bombs, grow and sell "drugs", do one of the many vehicle missions, or kill some of the people with bounties on their heads. You can rob casinos, stores, houses, businesses, and other players. The more risk you take, the more money you get - just don't get caught!
If you don't already have SA:MP, you should go and read more about it on our downloads page - it's fun!

Thanks for everyone who participated and delivered/stole gifts for their team!
240 players participated, delivering or stealing a grand total of 63,035 gifts!
While for the most part team Santa seemed to have been in the lead, team Grinch mobilised all possible people and turned the last day of the event into a head to head that stayed uncertain until the very end.
However, the final scores are in and are as follows

Would also like to give a special shout out to Scorpion/Stainless who has spent some time ban evading and PMing people to beg for votes for this years SACNR awards. He was obviously desperate for some recognition so I'm giving him a paragraph here! Grats man!
Cheers again for taking part
And thanks for sticking around with SACNR for another year, I'll be the first to admit it's been a bumpy ride over the last 3 years but I'd like to think things are picking up a bit now. With the release of SA-MP 0.3.8 coming soon(ish), we'll hopefully have some cool stuff for you to play with in the next year.
Santa and the Grinch have returned to SACNR to give (and take) some festive cheer. Players have been split evenly into two teams: Team Santa and Team Grinch! You can see your team by typing /i ingame.
Fill your festive sack at Santa's "Grotto"
Start your Santa mission with /xmasjob
Drive to houses on your list until your sack is empty
(Optional) Refill your sack at Santa's "Grotto"
End your Santa mission with /end
Get a discount at businesses with a red name
Start your Grinch mission with /xmasjob
Drive to houses on your list until your sack is full
(Optional) Empty your sack at The Grinch's "Lair"
End your Grinch mission with /end
Get a discount at businesses with a green name
Completing your respective missions will enter you into our Christmas Grand Prize. The top player from both Team Santa and Team Grinch will each win a permanent house and business slot added to their account! The team that completes the most missions will also receive a special prize!
Note: If you were one of the winners of the grand prize last year, we'll arrange an alternative prize.
We've also decided to award the players in 2nd and 3rd place on the winning team with something interesting too, just as an extra incentive to work as a team towards victory.
Along with the bits above, we've added some new features such as festive cars and haul items, as well as new commands and changes to other commands:
/xmashelp - Information on our Christmas event
/xmasmsg (/xm) - Send messages to players on the same team
/hidegift - Hide gifts for others to find (Open to players of all Regular Player levels!)
/gift - Find gifts that others have hid
/inventory (/in) - Now includes the number of gifts you have
/commands (/cmds) - Includes a list of commands exclusive to our Christmas event
/info (/i) - Displays which team a player is on
/stats (/sts) - Displays how many Santa or Grinch missions a player has completed
/moneybag (/mb) - The money bag has been replaced with a Christmas bauble
Our host (OVH) is currently having networking issues in the RBX region after some routine network maintenance went wrong. Hopefully they'll have things back on track soon. Until then we'll have a degraded network experience with higher pings and packet loss.
Tazers now have a per-player cooldown, this means as soon as a player has been tazed, they can't be tazed again for another 10 seconds. This should allow situations to be slightly more balanced and as a cop, you'll have to put more thought into when you want to use your taser.
Moderator team, we've created a new group of people to moderate chat a little more. They're identified by the "(M)" on their /i textdraws. Their role will be to look after anything which happens in chat, help eliminate spam and hopefully make the atmosphere slightly more enjoyable to be part of.
Three witches have descended on San Andreas, they were last spotted near Fern Ridge, Las Brujas and at Leafy Hollow. They're selling potions but only to those who posess "Magic Beans". Luckily, these are being given out to anyone trick or treating!
You can drink these potions with /potion (/pt) which can give you a short term effect, this may give you an advantage but they may also make you easier to kill, cost you more money or get arrested much faster. Use them if you dare! You can check your inventory (/in) to see how many beans and potions you have.
The witches have been kind enough to give everyone 1 potion to start the event.
As well as the bits above, The familiar bits are back from last year:
Witches have replaced the money bag with spooky cauldrons.
Businesses have been ordering spookier items from long haul drivers.
A mysterious being has repainted vehicles on the map.
Pumpkins have started growing all over San Andreas.
Homeowners all over the server are allowing people to Trick or Treat their houses for a chance of winning $5,000,000. (Protection from scary ghosts not guaranteed)
Mr. Skeltal, official SACNR provider of healthy bones and calcium has taken over from Anna.
/potion (/pt) - Drink a potion
/trickortreat (/tot) - Knock on a door - must be near a house
/??? - The "secret" command has once again returned
Range: Increased/Decreased range for commands like /rob /arrest /heal and /tazer
Medical fees: Increased/Decreased med fees on death
Damage: Increased/Decreased attack damage (Only works on players, not vehicles)
Kung fu: Fancy fighting style
Spicy beans: Be careful when you /fart
Nitro cars: Any vehicle you get into has an added extra
Each effect lasts 2 minutes, so use it while you can!
Have fun and Happy Halloween!
PS: Sorry we're running the same update as last year, I had some really cool stuff planned but couldn't get it working (We had some flying NPCs). I'll try to work on it a bit earlier for next time, it'll be worth the wait, I promise.
