This doesn’t seem to be true anymore (no fallback to password). I also can’t find a setting. Am I missing something?

Yes, that’s the default setting actually. Just set up an SSH key for your user and when you connect to your droplet without an ssh key (machine 2) it will fall back to a password prompt.
