Vertex was started with the initiative to liven up the Minecraft experience through the use of custom-built plugins. Why rely on 10's if not 100's of other developers to update and maintain their plugins if you can do it yourself?

Developing bespoke plugins would mean faster bug fixing, greater control over how plugins behave, and can also aid in plugin compatibility.

Creating a lot of features and mechanics that you once relied on other developers to do means a much larger codebase to manage. To combat this, greater organisation and the development of elegant backend systems would need to be designed to reduce code bloat and aid in feature building. Our implementation for the solution to this problem is Arc.

Arc functions as a platform that allows features to be rapidly built. You spend less time writing code for sub-systems and more time writing code for your feature.

  • Arc has standardised the way commands and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are written so it's more robust and a lot simpler to write for.
  • Arc has no additional dependencies from other plugins by default to lessen dependency hell.
  • Arc provides modularity by allowing you to develop modules that can be hot-swapped in and out of the server at runtime.
  • Arc also functions as an expanded API for features like NPCs, Emulated Crafting, and Customisable Mobs to name a few.

This project was started in early 2019 and has continued non-stop ever since.
