Below are some frequently asked questions about vertex. If you have any other questions regarding us, do feel free to ping an operator in our discord.
The version vertex uses across all servers is native 1.14.4. We don't use via versions (a plugin allowing multiple versions to connect) because dynamic versions add nondeterminism to the server. In otherwords, all the plugins that we run may not yield the same output.
Vertex was created from from the merging of two older communities and has existed since May 17th 2019.
Vertex aims to be an entity that is not another clone of typical factions, skyblock and pvp servers. We focus more on creating an awesome expierence for the players. We are not and we hate pay to win. We believe all players should have a fair baseline to start from. That baseline should not be decided on wealth but on how you play the game. We want to be an entity that works as a team to accomplish goals.
Captain Caliber was the one to pitch the idea of combinding our communities into a larger entity so we'd have more resources and have a better team. I (Laeven) was the one to pitch the name and call it Vertex. Why? It's a simple enough name.
Vertex runs on paper mc! Why? It's a lot more optimised than regular full-fat spigot. Performance is everything!
Vertex has no single owner. Unlike a lot of other servers which have owners and co-owners, Vertex does not have any of these ranks. Instead, Vertex is run by 5 operators. It's designed like this because no one person should ever have absolute power, for everyone has their own biases. Decisions to changes of the server are dicussed and voted upon between all 5 of us. 5 because there will always be an odd vote number.
MiniCenter! Which is ran by one of our operators. We self host our own servers.
When we feel we're in a position to do so. Athendria is still in it's early phases and thus a date for when it will open is uncertain.
When Mellow gets out of alpha and when decent progress has been made on Athendria if not nearly finished.
We don't have the funds nor the staff or time to build and police a forum. For now, we are just using discord as a platform for announcements, discussion, and anything else related to Vertex.
Our operator Laeven built it using bootstrap 4 from scratch.
