I'm running my first server ever using nodecraft. I have a concern though, We're about to be 24 hours in and my SSD for the server is already at 10% and I've had to restart the server once because of RAM going up to 97% after 17 hours. The Specs are as followed 2GB RAM, 10GB SSD, 20GB Backup and unlimited slots. World is .87km, advice, should I be concerned will I need to upgrade prior to making it to 30 days?

RE: BIG ISSUE THAT WILL KEEP ME FROM PLAYING
I proposed laws to remove control from the leader that was being to controlling and I do what we do here in America. I advertised, I put up signs. Well the Admin, who was the leader banned me because he didn't like the signs. ECO, you guys need to remove the ability to ban players. Nothing in the rules said it wasn't allowed. This is pushing away your actual player base. I'm a computer programmer, American military veteran and firefighter. These players were being culturally unaccepting, there for being racist. The little bit of money you get from someone running a server if any, doesn't out weight the number of players you have pushed away from this toxic power you give people that own the servers. Please FIX THIS ISSUE
BIG ISSUE THAT WILL KEEP ME FROM PLAYING
Your Game Host, Admins, They can unclaim land and take off your work. That's not Okay, I had an admin unclaim my land because they didn't like my prices. This is a very toxic feature you need to remove. The game Host Should not have any more power then the player right next door. If any one should have any power it's the elected leader. FIX IT Along with that, The BAN ability should be removed as well. Make it a voted issue..
Ideas for more collaboration
Currently you have the meteor, I have some ideas for more collaboration. You can add a super volcano, that has to be stopped to prevent an ice age. You could also add the sun going super nova, or a larger meteor that can't be stopped, so the community must build a rocket to leave the planet.
As for pollution that you're missing. Nuclear energy and radiation is a huge environmental issue. You could make it a super power plant that's cheaper with no air pollution, increasing the pollution created by regular power planets to make it more desirable. The negative effect could be if there's a melt down(from lack of water or maybe a 0.5%-0.01% chance every day) and you're near the radioactive material you lose calories. To stop the fall out you have to put a dome over it and then remove the radioactive dirt. Radioactive suits could be build to prevent calorie lose. Also the used up radioactive product, needs to be sealed to prevent the spread of radiation.
You're also missing three other big pollution issues with air pollution. Big factories towards the west will blow their pollution in the air, well when it gets out east, it rains back to the earth causing streams, lakes and ponds to become inhabitable to fish. Fertilizers from farms also cause similar issues when they run off into streams and the ocean causing dead zones. Making Corn able to be used as ethanol for expensive, but clean gas would add to this formula. The Chesapeake Bay is the biggest example to look at. The Bay was almost dead because of run off and now it's back alive. The last one is fracking, you could reduce oil locations, and add fracking locations. Fracking would cause ground pollution.
Now to make this even more collaborating, if you add boats and sea fishing. You can have different tier boats, basic sail boat to actual giant fishing boats. Then when the pollution from the farmers decreases the fish population, the fishermen get mad at the farmers.
Just some idea, I know you guys were talking about adding the towns and stuff.
2 Bugs and 1 easy quality of life imporvement. Two Bugs, one is sound, it's very glitchy and not always playing. 2nd is memory dump, the longer you play, the lower your FPS go. The quality of life improvement would be a sound,text or visual indication when your tool breaks. It's very hard to notice.
I'm running on I7 2600, 16GB RAM, GTX 1050, my FPS drop from around 80 to 13 over time..
