How much ram is used per world?

  1. Thinking about doing a new server that might have 50+ worlds loaded at any given moment in time. I'm wondering how much RAM each world would require if using multiverse to load the worlds. Keep in mind that the worlds would be set so that their spawns are not kept in memory.

    What estimates are out there for this?
    Ram required per loaded chunk?
    Any impacts on performance?
  2. I'm not sure about the first two, but if you do not have a lot of space in your storage you might run into some troubles. If you still haven't bought a dedicated server (yes you might want one if you are running 50+ worlds) you might want to opt-in for SSD's. Note you probably will need a lot of ram, and a great CPU.

    **edit** Yes, you will have to use Multiverse to keep all the 50+ worlds loaded.
