I saw a few "non mojang" servers out there and that's what it sounds like you run. I don't have a need for claims or anything as its not going to be published.
So... Your pointers and ideas? I like the idea of a resources map... So I might need an alternate server setup.
Runs on Linux or windows, just use a spare machine you have laying around. Adding claims and other "stuff" is just a plugin, a file you down load to whatever directory it tells you to. Restart server and it's working. Ok, rarely that easy, but that is the gist.
