VPS / Server requirements

Dear community,

I am developing a game in the ‘shadows’ for a while now and it seems like it is finally going towards the BETA version of the game.

Although I need some advice on what kind of Virtual Private Server I need to order, and more important: what kind of specifications are required in order to run an eclipse server?

I am currently looking at the following setup:

Memory: 1024MB

Disk Space: 50 GB

Processor: 1 core

Windows Hyper-V

Are the requirements above enough for a Eclipse Server? And is there anything else I should worry about?

Appreciate your time and effort.

Yours Sincerely,

Darknesslighter

hi darknessslighter the thing is ur the one who knows best wat kind of server u need 4 ur game

often times vps hosting services let u pick a number of “slices”. wat i suggest is that u pick the lowest amount of slices and test it. while ur game is in development i doubt u will need more. the actual system requierements for eclipse origins are very low, but it scales depending on the number of players and what they are doing over how many maps. so once ur game is ready to first b played, u can find a bunch of friends and simply add slices on the fly depending on the needs

tl;dr that should b plenty, if not then test wat u need

It’s enough for a lower end server, though that’s all you really need if it’s cheap. If you wanted to keep the server then I’d say look for a bit more ram, less space, another processor, and maybe a more well known OS. But this one would get the job done.

and maybe a more well known OS

the os is windows, unknown release

hyper-v is the hypervisor aka the software used behind the scenes by the vps provider 2 run windows

Ahh, I don’t know too much about the side-line OS s so sorry, anyways, I’d go with that deal if it’s cheap.

Anyone which suggests a low-cost hosting package?

The lowest package of Corgitech runs servers just fine.

Does it matter if I get an Linux VPS? As I am not sure the server.exe will run on it… Anyone?

u need windows 2 run eclipse sorry.

yes its normal that ur windows vps is pricier

Yeah I noticed, Gheheh… To bad though!

Anyway: Thanks!
