How you can help
Multi Theft Auto has loads of areas in which you can help us. In turn, we'll be more than happy to help you get started with any ideas you have, help test them and - if they're good enough - release them to the whole community. This page outlines the key areas you could do something in, of course, there are many things we've not thought of, so think outside the box!

- Report issues with the mod, make sure to do a search on the already reported issues first.
- Test and confirm existing reported issues.
- Use the newest build of MTA to detect and report new bugs, by going to 'Settings', 'Advanced', 'Update build type' and choosing 'Nightly' or get it regularly from here.
- Any bugs which are related to a scripting function / event and present in the main release (rather than nightlies), document that bug by adding a warning to the wiki page to save other scripters a lot of time.
- Create a fuzzer to check for crashes in our scripting functions.
