I think this would be an amazing addition to the Continuum Server for a couple of reasons, which are:
The free lava at spawn, currently as it stands the free lava at spawn is not chunkloaded which results in anyone using the littlest bit of lava from the tanks instantly drains it, so it being un chunkloaded defeats the who purpose of having free lava at the spawn, same goes for the free water.
People's bases/space stations etc, as you stated on discord, it's annoying to have to go back and forth to remake materials because you cannot chunk load your ME System with a quantum ring, and a chunkloader would be able to fix this, it would also be able to fix power issues that could occur such as someones reactor or solar panels not being loaded so their machines that require power won't get that and do their jobs.
I was looking around for alternatives to add as chunkloading that wouldn't require other users to install mods and what I found was: https://github.com/KasperFranz/BetterChunkLoader
I managed to get it working with a few hiccups, it's all depending on the server managers if they're willing to implement this, but overral I agree with your suggestion of adding chunkloaders, it'll improve the overall quality of life for continuum. But as it currently stands I don't know if the managers/bruny has anything planned for Continuum and adding chunkloaders.
Thanks for the suggestion and I hope it gets implemented into Continuum, since it'll help out alot of players.
