Xmas Giftbox Hunt 2020

December 14th, 2020, 1:51 pm

The festive season is just around the corner and Italy Mafia is getting ready for 2 weeks of events, plenty of gifts and freebies.

Starting 14.12.2020 1pm until January 1st you can earn rewards and gifts ranging from in-game money to materials, name changes, premium memberships, unique vehicles and much more.



Unwrap gift boxes, earn candies
Santa is visiting San Andreas and has gifts for the good boys. Use the command /giftbox to start hunting gift boxes dropped by Santa that can be found all over San Andreas.

Using the command /giftbox will put yourself into event-mode and instructions will be given to you on where the next gift boxes are located. Gift boxes require 1 player to open. If you are near their designated gift box, it will unwrap and you will collect candies found inside.

Gift boxes contain a random amount of candy and will be distributed to you. Candies in a box range between 25 and 40 candies.

Any gift boxes opened between 17:00 - 02:00 (server-time) contain a +10% bonus. Additionally, premium players will receive an extra +10% candy at all times and premium >5 players an extra +20% candy at all times. (= up to 78 candy/giftbox)

Players need to wait 3 minutes before being able to open another gift box. Premium players only 2 minutes.
There must be at least 30 players connected for gift box hunting to be enabled.

Other ways to earn candies
At every paytime, you will receive a random amount between 30-60 candies.
You will get a gift of 50 candies if you are in the top 3 state lottery winners and qualified poor people also get 25 candies.
By winning a race you can also earn 50 candies.

Bonuses are excluded from these ways to earn candies.



Candies for surprises
Exchange your candies for surprises at the Christmas tree at the main bank Christmas tree. Use /candy to choose your surprise box.

Exchange 200 candies for a surprise box that contain 1 of:
  • Money ($300k - $700k) [probability: 60%]
  • Drugs: Ecstasy (10g - 15g) [probability: 30%]
  • 1 name change [probability: 5%]
  • 1 number change [probability: 5%]
Exchange 420 candies for a surprise box that contain 2 of:
  • Money ($1m - $2m) [probability: 50%]
  • Drugs: Ecstasy (25g - 30g) [probability: 21%]
  • 1 name change [probability: 10%]
  • 1 number change [probability: 10%]
  • Random vehicle [probability: 3%]
  • Premium vehicle claim [probability: 3%]
  • Premium account balance (1 EUR - 5 EUR) [probability: 3%]

Happy Hour
If there are more than 100 players online, happy hour will be enabled automatically. If the player count drops below 60, happy hour will be disabled.


Events
The IM Event Team will be hosting various events throughout the next 2 weeks with big prizes to win, more details on this will follow soon.

100% top-up bonus
Topping up your EUR account balance for premium membership and items will be rewarded with a 100% bonus. If you top up 10 EUR, you will receive 20 EUR to your account balance.

If 3 players are near a gift box, it will unwrap and nearby players will collect candies found inside.
if 3 players unwrap and 5 others are nearby, do all 8 get rewards or just the 3?

ELI5 version:

Write /giftbox, wait for the cooldown to end and a gift box to be assigned to you that is currently spawned.
Imagine there's 1 gift box, but 10 people have this gift box assigned - only the first 3 people that find it will get the rewards and then the giftbox dissapears. The other 7 players are too late and will immediately get a new gift box location.

To make it not to easy, the X meters away indicator will stop updating when you are closer than 150 meters, else it'll just be easy checkpoint to checkpoint driving.

It is essentially the same as last year, except that you need 3 people to open a box rather than 1.
