Been a while since we had some news and I'd like to start with something to get the members and "potential" members involved in. As you all know we have and always have had a bot user problem, the registration is closed and currently you must register manually via our E-mail. Do you feel this method is putting people off joining our site? Do you mind the spam bots being here as long as staff keep on top of it? Answer in the poll and leave your comments in the section below. Normally this is dealt with in house but we are all a family and we'd like to here your view on this matter.

Ladies and gentlemen, due to the excessive amount of non-legit user registrations, or better known as spammers, we have been forced to lock the registration form temporarily until we find any better security script for our registration page. Those who wish to have an account registered in the mean time, you can use the Contact Us module in the Main Menu to the left of this news post, or simply click HERE. Also please provide us with your desired username. In the mean time, we'll do a massive cleanup in the members list. Any member with zero posts and zero banknotes we think is suspicious gets deleted without warning. If you have ever registered an account for downloads only there is a chance it can get deleted by accident.
It's finally done. All suspicious members have been deleted. In total 710 members have been deleted. The members list is now 3 pages long instead of 17.
If you find your account deleted, it might have happened due to the following reasons:
. You have made zero posts and:
. Your account name did not remotely make any sense
. Your email address did not make any sense
. Your email address ended with @mail.ru, @pohta.net, @sina.cn, @polioneis-reborb.com and other obscure providers
. Your user name contained the words: Louis, Vuitton, Pletcher, Carpente, share, pay, buy, win, free, best, spam, bot, searcher, scan, login, user and product names
. Your email address was identical to your username
. Your user name was similar to a known spammer
. Your email address could simply be found in the online spam database
|| Modelers wanted for Mafia Titanic Mod
Posted by MrRobville @ 4:45pm BST on Sunday 7th April 2013[1 Comment(s)]
Many may have noticed that progress was not going fast lately.
The problem that is happening is that some critical team members are having busy periods.
I'm currently having an internship myself which delivers me very little free time.
Kyle is occupied with another Titanic project and Djbozkosz is having a long exam period.
With two main modelers and the environment scripter being busy there is little work that can be done.
That's why I'm sending a call for modelers!
If you have experience with making detailed, well optimized, accurate, and low poly 3D models and textures don't hesitate to contact me!
I am seeking for modelers on the following subjects:
RMS Carpathia modeling.

After a two week hiatus, giving the Easter Holidays their proper conclusion and drawing some better weather into both the UK and good old MafiaScene.com, it is time to conclude the first Game Giveaway Competition on MafiaScene.com! Sadly, I have not received the desired number of participants that I would have expected to turn out, but I know this is a growing community and this game may not appeal to everyone, so we are here to make due with what we have. In that light, I am pleased to announce that linnukis has won the competition this time around. The result was obtained using a random number generator based on the entry order of the contestants. More proof of the fairness of the draw can be found by visiting the competition topic in the Site Discussion forum category.
On another note, the entire MafiaScene.com staff would like to thank all the participants and all our current members for their support and for the fact that they keep coming back and posting on this great site, and we would also like to pledge that a new, improved competition will be coming in the next few months, with even more great games to be raffled and prizes to be awarded, so keep coming back and participate. We hope you've all had a great Easter and, of course, spent it playing Mafia .

Hello everyone. It is my great pleasure to announce, on behalf of the entire site staff, the first major competition to hit Mafia Scene since it's revival. We think it wise to make every effort possible in order to retain our core members and also attract more members to the site, and, as such, we have implemented the Game Giveaway Competition which will regularly take place on Mafia Scene. To find out more about the competition, including rules, guidelines and to actually participate, visit the topic HERE.
I sincerely hope that this competition, along with future ones that will be more and more innovative and more and more demanding, will convince most of you to stick around, have fun with us, and of course hold your fingers crossed for Mafia 3.

Hello Mafia Scene aficionados. It is my pleasure to update you on the number of improvements the site has went through since the last news post.
First off, by popular request, there is a new Contact Us feature available in the site menu to the left. Now this isn't all, as a more easily-accessible Contact button will follow in the forum menu in the near future, but I think it is important that everyone understands how to use the Contact space. For users who need to contact the staff about specific problems (or requests) they experience with the Photo Gallery, Downloads, Forums or other general enquiries, the Contact Us space in the menu should now make it clear who to contact in each of these circumstances, either by Private Message or using Facebook. Lastly, in the eventuality that users are unable to log in to the site to post a Private Message or a bug report, or are unable to access Facebook, there is a form available that you can use to contact us at our dedicated e-mail address so that we can solve any problem you may encounter as fast as possible. Please adhere to the rules laid out on the Contact Us page and mark your query accordingly in order to speed up the entire process. It is vital to remember however that the entire Mafia Scene staff works as one for the better running of the site, and there is no distinction between the values and importance of any of the staff members, so please respect them all equally.
Now in the eventuality you encounter any bugs relating to the site, as you can see the Bug Reports topic has been scrapped in favor of a one topic per bug approach that would make communication between members and staff easier, rather than wasting everything in one huge topic. So, from now on, if you encounter any bugs relating to the site or it's performance please open a topic in the Site Discussion part of our forums and they will be swiftly dealt with.
Second, the theme has underwent some slight improvements as well, with the text quality and size being improved, the menus being smoothed out and other minor tweaks around the general display of the page and forums. Also, we have implemented more advanced security measures to stop the spam attacks that have been hounding our forums these past few weeks. Hopefully we have managed to put a stop to these and we do sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the previous ones. Rest assured that we are constantly working on improving the experience we offer you while browsing Mafia Scene and we are always open to suggestions, ideas or requests from our members as long they are reasonable.
To conclude, as you can see there are two new competitions open in the Off Topic forums, the Original Mafia Quiz and the Picture Caption Contest which both await your participation, with a chance to win BN's which you can spend in our store or in our magical casino-like opportunities around the site. We thank you for your continued support and dedication and we hope to see more and more users around and posting.
P.S. Don't forget to check out the Hall Of Fame, updated with Past Regulars and Past Staff Members. Oh, the memories.

Time to announce another big improvement to the ever-growing Mafiascene.com! Following a hard day's work we have managed to re-add the content involving Mafia I, from the story to the characters, a description of the city, tutorials and also modding advice. Since this information was written a long time ago if you do spot any irregularities, please contact one of the staff members in order to get things remedied. But in the long run, you should check the menu block on the left and explore the goodies, spoiling yourself with great articles such as the Car Photo Gallery, Easter Eggs, etc.
On a further note, we have also opted to bring back the Hall of Fame, in an effort to get members to stick around, post, and help our community grow again and reach the heights we all know it was meant to stay at for eternity (ha). As such, keep in mind that if you make smart, ample contributions to the forums, help us get old downloads back, enrich the Photo Gallery and also have a respectful and decent general approach, the chances are you will be remembered in our one and only HoF.
So there you have it folks. Enjoy the rest of your week and, as usual, play both Mafia games again and keep your fingers crossed for Mafia III. Also stay tuned for new and improved features of this site, with a HUGE SURPRISE coming to you tomorrow night on the forums. We are just getting started.

It is that time again! Time for some new ingame footage of the Titanic Mod. The video shows some newly placed and partially WIP interior areas of all 1st class public places on A deck. Later on when everything is converted completely and all effects are applied correctly I shall make a video in a slower pace so that all details can be seen better. And when shall the mod release? - IT WILL BE DONE WHEN IT'S DONE. Thank you

Hello and welcome, everyone!
It is my and the entire staff crew's pleasure to welcome you back to the new and enhanced Mafia Scene. As always, our aim is to provide you with the best experience when it comes to Mafia, including feedback, the best and biggest collection of downloads, coupled with the biggest online community on the subject. If there are any ex-members that are reading this now, wiping a tear from their eyes, please feel free to register an account and rediscover your old friends and your favorite community. For the new ones that are just discovering Mafia Scene, feel free to stick around, open new topics, play both Mafia games again and keep your fingers crossed for a future Mafia 3 announcement for the new generation consoles.
In the unfortunate event that you do discover any bugs, please report them in the appropriate topic in the Site Discussion forum here. As you may also have noticed, the content and Photo Gallery are completely revamped from scratch, as the site is now on stable hosting and will definitely not go away again. As always, the community is the heart of any forum and web-site and we will be counting on your help and contributions to restore everything that we have lost over our hiatus. Once the community will grow to a decent size we will be looking to re-start old competitions, Hall of Fame and even the Member of the Month award again, so please, by all means, get your friends involved as well.
Enough of our jabbering. Make yourselves at home and enjoy the new Mafia Scene! Also make sure you like us on Facebook for brand new updates!
