What is Forever Stranded and How to play?
Forever Stranded is a hardcore survival modpack with an exciting storyline. You and your friends are basically stuck on an inhabitable, alien planet and you have to find a way to get out of there.
You start the world next to your crashed space shuttle, and you have to build the technology that'll get you out of there using whatever items you can craft in this harsh environment.

TIP: Make sure you pay close attention to your hunger and thirst levels! You'll also need to seek shelter if it gets too hot.
You could jump inside a water source if it gets too hot to cool yourself, or you could even build an air conditioning system as you progress in the game and unlock more technologies.
Once you reach the end game, your goal is to build a rocket and get yourself and your team out of there.
Forever Stranded Server Hosting
If you want to host a Forever Stranded server, you're going to need to download its server files and turn your computer into a Minecraft server. It has its advantages and disadvantages. The biggest benefit is you don't get to pay a monthly fee to a company for running and managing your server. However, it also has plenty of disadvantages as well. Such as technical know-how, and server downtime when your computer is off. We recommend setting up your Forever Stranded on a professional hosting provider since you can have a 24/7 server this way for as low as $7 a month.

How much RAM do I need for Forever Stranded?
You'll need at least 4GB of RAM. But we recommend 6GB or more to play Forever Stranded Minecraft modpack. Here's why; we set up a basic 4GB server first and installed the modpack. It worked without any lag or crashing. However, when a friend of ours joined the server, it became noticeably laggy. When we upgraded our test server to 6GB, lag entirely.
So, on our setup, 6GB was the sweet spot for 2 people. If you plan on playing with more people, you can start with 6GB and see if it'll be enough. If it lags, you may have to upgrade to 8GB of RAM or more.
