This is an exciting transition! Keep us posted!
Hey I can help you update the server I use to have my own server but its to pricey to maintain
I could use a list of features that people think are must haves.
Lockette/LWC is definitely crucial. Currency and shops are extremely important IMO. Probably Safe Explosions or something like that, so creepers don't ruin the new place.
Here is a list. Fell Free to Add Remove etc!http://pluginideas.zachspong.com/
I'd agree with Zach on his list. Obv PEx, lb, lwc, and a plugin to disable creeper booms.
