Minecraft Java edition, RAM usage tweaks

My PC runs on Linux Mint xfce, with a dual core pentium processor (G2010) and 3.7GiB ram. I have weeded out most of the widgets and background apps and the system utilizes about 400-600MiB ram in resting state which seemed good enough for me.
Now then I started Minecraft with my Task Manager (60MiB) turned on. I have stated the results below {leaving out the mem. consumed by desktop and background apps}:
Launcher 300MiB
Game menu intro 800MiB
In Game 1.2GiB to 1.7GiB and 60% to 97% processor use.
Every 20min the RAM usage increased by .1GiB, most likely cause I was foraging and moving around.
Well, is this good or I can try some hacks to bring down the RAM usage?

:shock: I could never make it run well in this old junk when it was running on windows. Seems like I shouldn't poke it any more, as long as it works

My suggestion would be to use https://multimc.org/ on laptops and dont go over 1.12.2 version (32-bit) if you can work out how to use the program (i havent yet)

the MultiMC is beautiful

just need to remember to install java 8 runtime (open java 8 runtime) for 1.12.2
