Hi @jadeonkingc0e75,

It’s really hard to pinpoint such things. The best possible way is to ‘test it out’. What I always like to do is start with the smallest possible droplet and upgrade along the way.

Now, as previously stated the biggest issue will be RAM rather than CPU:

Now you need to take the values with a pinch of salt. Less than the mentioned should be fine. You can always add some SWAP to it which should help in crisis moments.

There is no defined system requirements that will say you - ‘you need 1GB of RAM’. You need to test it and see how it works. The thing you need to look at is RAM. CPU is not a problem, but RAM is biggest problem with Minecraft servers.

In my experience 2 GB would be enough to run 10 player vanilla server. Even maybe more then enough. But problem is mods that can consume a lot and it could be that you’ll need 4 GB RAM plan (this is $40). You can try to going with 2 GB, with addition of swap if needed. Problem is that swap can slow down server actually but as servers on SSD it can be less noticeable.

As I said, without test run, no one can say how much you’ll need. :)
