    The code is entirely open source for you to check. There's no encryption, hidden things, etc.
    There's nothing malicious in here :)

    except it's open source and you don't have to pay to host a server
    trust me, i've been testing it along with dummies and it's got more features than BeamMP

    Nope. I've personally been working with The HellBox on this mod for around a month now, and have seen the ins and outs of all parts of the code.
    The most risky part would be if someone were able to make a BeamNG mod that were to do malicious things, and host it on a server.

    There is currently an issue where, when joining a server while loaded into a map, some vehicles may not spawn
    Otherwise we haven't noticed anything.
