✥ The Team
Vertex Creations is a professional realms map making team, that has worked with multiple youtubers, such as SSundee, MrCrainer, PopularMMOs & Logdotzip. We consist of 20+ highly skilled members, that work daily on builds, functions, graphics, and much more.
Vertex Creations originates from Team CCR & Mirage Maps, which were disbanded and formed a new and improved team, back in the start of 2018.
When it comes to maps, our main focus is on Minigame, PvP, and puzzle maps, but we have also worked on other genres, such as Adventure, Parkour, Dropper & PvE.

✥ The Organizers
"Yo, I’m marhjo! I began playing Minecraft at the beginning of 2011. I migrated that account on the 6th of July 2011, and from that date I began making my own maps.
My maps mostly consisted of a couple of builds, and a story I had written on a paper beside my parent's laptop. The days were tough without command blocks and nice blocks to build with, but hope was not lost! I kept improving my skill in building with the use of Build Battle and Speed Builders on various servers. In 2013 I began making my own smaller build team with some friends. The team was nowhere near professional, and we only build together once or twice a week, but we made the best of the time we had. In 2014 the built team split up, we stopped having contact, and our friendship slowly faded away.
In the middle of 2015, I joined a dungeon map project, the owner of the team was not that nice, and I got talent scouted by another team that I began making maps with. MentalBlockGaming. In this team I began working on puzzle maps, and adventure maps. One of my most known was Rogue Quest: Chronos and the lantern of souls. When the team began going slower, and we all began work on our own projects, I chose to join a Christmas project, where I made my own minigame for it, and that’s how I got in contact with Ts. After the map was released I kept working with Mirage Maps, alas, after nearly 1.5 years later, there were some issues within Mirage and several of the leaders, like me, decided to create their own team: Vertex Creations!"

"I first started making maps, mostly by myself or with a couple of friends, back in 2012 with version 1.3, however I never quite managed to finish a map until I was making maps in the late 1.8 snapshots.One of those maps was «The Graveyard», and it turned out decent and was finally released in the final 1.8 release, in early 2015, my first published map! But then, a short time later, I decided to create boss fights for anyone who would request them, and I was soon overwhelmed by requests - that was the first time I was looking for other map makers to help me and thereby I also met EnderPig. After a while making bosses wasn't interesting anymore, so I decided to disband the little team I had made.
A short time later I was asked by EnderPig to help with a project he was working on: Harry Potter in Minecraft, and eventually, I join the team he had made for this map. We worked on this map for a long time, around a year and also released a ton of smaller project together at the same time (E.g. Zombie Warriors, Warthford & many more). After a long time, we eventually had to admit that this project was impossible since EnderPig took a break for a short time after this I decided to not give up on this team and to move forward with other plans - and that was quite successful. Most of the team stayed together and EnderPig eventually returned - now we were the nameless McTsts Map Making Team instead of the Harry Potter in Minecraft Team. It took us a long time, but finally, after around a year of voting we eventually found a name for our team, and so we became Mirage Maps.
EnderPig eventually left Mirage Maps and later Mirage was disbanded. Most of Mirage's member joined Vertex, so eventually I also joined."
"Originally I started map making in 2016 with an adventure-puzzle-CTM map called «Anubis’ Wrath», inspired by maps like Diversity. It was supposed to offer players a bit of everything, while also slowly unveiling the backstory. The project was later canceled, but on the forum thread where I asked for help in testing the beta version, I met McTsts. He liked my work, so he offered me a job in his team, which was unnamed back then. Turns out I enjoyed working with other people, so I stayed. About 1.5 years later, that team became a part of Vertex, so here I am.
I like all kinds of underground electronic/house/glitch hop music. I enjoy playing a variety of games, including e.g. Shattered Pixel Dungeon and Enter the Gungeon. I love food and eating (especially snacks), reading fantasy books and webcomics, such as Ava’s Demon, Homestuck, Cucumber Quest or Handplates. I also like browsing Reddit and slacking off."
✥ The Co-Organizers
"Greetings, my name is Cecilioacc, but others know me as 59_, 4tifye, Lefty, marasbaras, etc.. I have been playing Minecraft for I don't know how long. It started out with my father and I in his office playing Minecraft Modded. He setup the server and we played together. We built machines, large structures, rail systems and the like. Then I discovered creative mode, it was then I started playing single player building things I thought I never could in survival.
This continued until I discovered commands and command blocks. I started making things like command block doors, small features, etc. Then I took a break from Minecraft. Months passed and I finally returned. I was playing on the Gamemode 4d Server when I met Federick. We became friends and we would always have a 'voice' chat when we played. After a while, I took a shorter break due to exams. When I returned Federick sent me an invite link to Vertex's discord. I saw what it was and thought, 'Why not'. I applied, and now I am here in the group with a lot of great and friendly people!”
"I started playing Minecraft back in November 2012. A year later I got into mapmaking, creating very primitive games by today's standard including mob arena, parkour, kitpvp and capture-the-flag type games. I have loved making maps ever since! Shortly after that, I discovered the new thing called 'Minecraft Realms.' I created a Realm in early January 2013 (almost right after they were released). Team CCR, my team, was formed sometime after then. Several years later, in the summer of 2016, I found the /r/realms map submission subreddit and got a new goal; to make games for Realms!
First I submitted a very simple mob arena with a flat arena and square lobby (ew). Surprisingly, they liked it and even though it wasn't quite the quality needed, (but they said it was close!) it encouraged me to make more maps in the future. A year and a half later, near the end of 2017, my second submission was actually accepted! Bombathon was a 5-month project and probably Team CCR's best work. Shortly after, Mirage sent us an offer asking Team CCR to merge with them! We merged with Mirage and started work on some new projects. Later CCR left Mirage again and became Vertex!"
"Hello, I'm federick! I'm one of the co-organizers and founders of the Vertex Creations team. I've been making maps for 2.9 years. When I help with maps I usually work on commands or on the resource pack (or both sometimes). I usually try to challenge myself on maps and do something unique. The Vertex maps I helped with are Capture Kings, Sky Control, Portals and other more maps that are coming soon™!
Hope you appreciate the little details I do very occasionally and the work we all come up with, together"
"I started creating one commands in 2015 and after some time started to make my own maps. Two years ago I was quite bored of Minecraft and got more and more into 2D motion graphics (You can check those out right here). Well, in 2018 I joined Vertex Creations and now I'm a graphic designer & command creator. Vertex has some of the nicest people I've ever met like McTsts, marhjo & Chopper2112, just to name a few and I think I'll be staying here for a long time."
✥ The Members
"Hey! I'm addisoff, also known as Addi! I joined Vertex in May 2018 I believe and its been awesome so far! I love creating, building and shaping, not only in Minecraft but in just about everything! I love having fun, joking around and last but not least, I love to just have a great time :smile: I've been building since I started playing Minecraft in may 2015. My favorite minigame was definitely build battle! I am almost 15 years old now, but honestly, my brain thinks I'm 4. As much as I love building, there is one thing I love even more and that is to make sure everyone is happy! Trust me, I'm a joker at its finest! I tried to start making maps in 2016 but I realized that I needed other people that helped me create projects.
Then I started looking for a team or other people who could help me make maps and do what I wanted to do. It led me to a place called MiniCraft where I helped work on a server that ended up never being released and kind of went in the trash and was quickly forgotten about. A few months later, Mirage Maps caught my eye and I tried to get in. Although I ended up not making it into Mirage, it motivated me to start improving my skills and a few months later I wanted to apply again, but found out there was a new team instead called Vertex, so I applied and this time, got in! I was super happy and excited to start creating maps and making new friends! There were interruptions and I didn't officially start doing anything before about July 2018, but when I started, I felt super happy because I felt useful and for once I felt really happy! I love what I'm doing and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with this amazing team of amazing people!"
"Hi, my name is 'BigNinjaChicken'. I have been playing Minecraft for a while now and love to make maps. I was once in a group called Trailblaze where we built maps all time for fun, and we made games like Arena Rumble, Short Fuze, etc. After a while, the members of Trailblaze started to join the group called Vertex Creations. It was hard to leave my team at first, but the people at Vertex were friendly (some) and welcomed me into the group.
I'm excited to work with Vertex, and hopefully, I will be an excellent asset to there team. See you around. 😃"
"Hey there, I’m DrBracewell! I’ve been playing Minecraft for around 6 years, and ever since the start I’ve been fascinated by how to push the limits of the game as far as they can go! After trying and failing to make a few maps of my own, I joined a server-building team headed by the YouTuber Grian called Wynncraft, and actively took part in that community. Eventually, I was directed towards Vertex Creations, and now make models, textures and functions for the team!
I’m hoping that my skills and ideas will help push the quality of Vertex maps even higher, and you’ll probably be seeing my name on one of the map credits soon!"
"Hey there I'm Eva, here is a little about me, I started playing Minecraft around 6 years ago, and It's been my passion ever since. It became my passion, because I would be able to put the creative brain of mine to work. In the past, I would do building competitions with my friends (all in good fun of course). After some time I moved to Minecraft servers, I went through many, and at last I found one I particularly fell in love with. Over time I became Staff and Builder there, but as I started to lose interest in it, and a lot of drama emerged, I chose to leave.
After that, I started making maps again and would play other maps for inspiration. A little while later I found Vertex Creations formerly known as Mirage Maps, I had played nearly all of their maps in the past, and had wanted to be a part of their team for a while. So, at last, I took a shot at applying, and look at that, now I am here bringing the amazing maps for you all.”
"I've only recently joined the team, so I'm not really that interesting! Plus, I do not have a good back story anyways...”
"Hello! I'm rafakado, and used to be one of Mirage's veteran members before we joined Vertex! I've been playing Minecraft for... uhh... long, now, and I can safely say it won't stop being one of my favorite games any time soon. I am not online in most of the team servers as much as I'd like to be, but I'm still building some stuff every now and then : ) I remember that the first time I got onto a server of my first team, I was so excited I was quite literally jumping... Anyway, I am a person, and you can check out my art Instagram @rafakadoart if you want (Warning: I draw some weird stuff)!”
"Greetings! I am RaptorMocha, I have been playing Minecraft since November of 2012. I started doing texture work in 2015 and started mapmaking in August of 2017, when I helped make a boat racing map for MineAthon 2017. Soon after that, I was picked up by Trailblaze in November where I worked on some minigames with them and since most of the people there are part of Vertex I decided to join Vertex as well, it's neat, I make textures and builds for them. You can follow me on Twitter @AssortedMocha7 where I mainly post edgy things and you can also check out my Resource Pack: Raptors Basic on PMC."
"Hi, I'm Synthestra, and I began playing Minecraft since July of 2011 (Wow, over 7 years!). Ever since I saw Archee's testing session for Palette Slam in early 2017, I have been helping out ever since at Trailblaze, with maps such as Arena Rumble, Survivalists, and Short Fuse (Also updated Arena Rumble and Short Fuse to 1.13, while adding language support because Archee was too lazy).
After I saw that some of my fellow Trailblaze members were also joining Vertex, I also hopped on the bandwagon. Where I lack in creativity, I exceed in logic, so commands only felt natural to do! In the future, I'd like to learn programming languages such as Java, so I can create my own Minecraft mods, and C++, just because I want to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.”
"Hey, my name’s SquareWave. But you can call me Square. I don’t really do a whole lot of the map making, but I do make soundtracks for Vertex’s maps. I’m one of the more recent members, so I haven’t done a lot... yet. I started playing Minecraft around 2012, and I think I made my first map around 2014. It was essentially a series of parkour maps with time limits, but I never finished that. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever finished a single map by myself at all. I’ve always wanted to get involved in a group of talented people and work on projects with them. Although I mostly supply soundtrack, I also like to give advice and design ideas whenever the opportunity presents itself. You can find my musical works on my Soundcloud!”
"Heya! I'm Veriti! I first started playing Minecraft in 2012, and became addicted when I discovered a huge part of the game was about letting your creativity run rampant! I'd always been artistically inclined, and this game gave me a platform to unleash my talent. In about 2015, I drifted away from building to engage in some more exciting game modes, such as PVP. I played on Hypixel for hours on end, and learned how to PvP. Three years went by, and I began to feel like I had over-saturated my interests to be purely PvP.
I began creating maps for minigames on Hypixel, such as SkyWars and 'built' up my portfolio. Then Aerh, one of my friends on Hypixel, asked me if I wanted to join their Build Team. I said perhaps, and they sent me the link to the website you are currently on. After reading through the pages and seeing the work, I decided that this is a group I want to involve myself in. I applied and was accepted hours later. I'm very happy to be here to a perfectly balance my interests & I hope I stay for many maps to come!”
"Hello everyone, I'm Zpicy! When I started playing Minecraft back in 2012, I had always had sort of an addiction with downloading maps. Maps of all kinds; parkour, builds, survival maps and mini-games; Everything. Fast forward to a year or two later when I started getting involved in small creative servers such as BeastsMC. There, I met many amazing people of which I no longer have any contact to. After the server began to die out, I decided I was due for a break. I started playing a lot of parkour on a server called Jumpcraft. Here, I've met many people that I'd consider some of my best friends.
Considering that maps were something the owner of the server graciously welcomed, it prompted me to start building again. I built my first map, a pagoda, and was thrilled when it was accepted. From there, I haven't stopped. I've built 15 maps for the server.
The most recent of these maps was a Battle Bus (yes, the one from Fortnite). This gained the attention of PrestonPlayz, who then made a video on the course. From that video, I was able to come in contact with many amazing Minecraft players, all of which had built maps for Crainer, who had a similar staff to that of Preston. From there, multiple members suggested for me to apply to Vertex Creations and I did just that, and it's been a blast so far!”
