How much memory for server?

Those of you who run Millenaire in a server, how much memory do you allocate to Minecraft? I just started renting a server and their RAM tiers were 384MB, 512MB, 1024, 1536, 2048, etc. They recommended 512MB for a server with minimal mods. I only have a few players, and Millenaire is the only resource intensive mod I'm running, the others are mostly just for maintenance, so I started at 512. My console always shows 100% RAM usage, so I upped it to 768MB. Still showing 100% usage, but it is running better. Though I could definitely see it running better still as it does still crash occasionally, especially if we're doing heavy exploring for instance.

Now I've done more research and find that other hosting sites recommend more like 1 or 2 GB, or even as much as 4 GB of RAM for a server like mine. (One site phrased it simply as, "plan 1 GB for your first 20 players, and 1 GB for your first 20 mods.") The site I'm on, (which my initial research seemed to indicate as one of the best,) charges a lot more for those tiers of RAM than many other sites.

How much RAM do you have for your Millenaire server? Did I screw up royally in my choice of hosts?

Thanks for your input!

I suggest for you to play local with your friends. Just play on LAN using hamachi, and you won't be bothering with paying for servers. However, you must make sure that you using same clients with same mods.

The usual recommended works most the time. If you have the extra money to spend without worry, go ahead. If not though, I do highly recommend doing what the guy above said.
