Vertex was founded in 2019 to create game modes that are cocktails of genuinely fun features.
To accomplish this, we don't use off-the-shelf plugins. We use in-house developed plugins. Why? For a number a reasons. Off-the-shelf plugins can fit into one or many of these categories.
- They're buggy
- They're exploitable
- They're an attack vector
- They cause dependancy hell
- Compatibility issues with other plugins
- Licensing issues
- Waiting on the author to fix or update their plugin can be longer than the heat death of the universe
We also develop additional in-house security systems to keep player data safe and attackers at bay. No security is ever perfect, but it's better than most servers.
Our in-house solution makes heavy use of automation to remove areas where human input used to be needed. Along with other systems we've developed internally to do the heavily lifting, this allows us to build new features for our community faster, sharper, and better.
