The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
The HappyDiggers TFC server attempts to stay as close as possible to the TFC experience. Players joining only need to have the latest TFC mod installed. The Freebie TFC has no whitelist and is open to anyone as long as they are friendly to other players and the staff. Players who enjoy our little community and are willing to support us with donations get access to our huge donor servers. Please read through the information below and follow the rules. You can download TFC from CurseForge.
The TechnodeFirmaCraft server also tries to remain true to the TnFC mod pack which is available on the ATLauncher. As well as the TFC server the TnFC server offers some quality of live features. On both servers there's Towny which has been configured to play nice with mods to offer protection. All block interaction is logged and players can view block history in case something goes amis.
We have been running TFC-based and other servers for many years now. Our staff is experienced and can help with most situations. Feel free to ask for help on the server, through tickets, on our forum or Discord.
The server has a few basic rules which all boil down to: be nice.
While on the server, type /rules to read the latest server rules.
Respect the staff and other players.
No bad language.
Please don't ask the staff for blocks, items, teleport, promotions, etc.
Please don't grief or steal from other players.
Don't turn your town spawn into a death trap. A small room with a door will keep unwanted visitors out.
No chunk loaders allowed. Any kind of chunk loading without the player present must be avoided.
Player builds server CPU usage are fair use. Staff will determine what is fair use. If one of your builds lags the server, you may be asked to change things.
To try to keep things running smoothly we are going to enforce some restrictions. These restrictions are on a per town basis. Meaning each town may have:
20 adult animals total. Not counting young animals.
4 plots of tilled soil farmland or berry bushes. This means 1024 blocks. They may be in more than three plots, but 1024 max.
16 fruit trees. (All kinds allowed: red apple, green apple, banana, peach, etc.)
1 of each kind of anvil. (copper, bronze, wrought iron, steel, etc.
People are free to record YouTube videos on our server. We would very much like to see those videos. So we kindly ask that you let us know about it or maybe post one or two here or on the HappyDiggers forum.
If you break the rules you may be banned. In some cases we issue a warning first. If you are banned and wish to be unbanned you may appeal your ban on the HappyDiggers forums. If you cannot resolve the issue there please feel free to start a dispute on the MCBans website. Keep in mind however that a dispute only means that you think we banned you for the wrong reasons. It will not get you unbanned from our servers.
Huge 100.000 x 30.000 pre-generated TerraFirmaCraft world.
Huge 100.000 x 30.000 pre-generated TechNode Firmacraft world.
Lobby server with a lot of mini-games like: Spleef, MOB arena, PVP arena, Paintball arena and parcour.
Jail server where we put people who break the rules to work to pay off their debt to out community.
Protect your builds using Towny. Use the /t command. Towns get 32 plots per resident to use to protect their towns. More people in a town means more plots!
With /tgui you can get a nice interface to making using the Towny commands easier.
Each town starts with 16 plots and gains another 16 plots per resident making large builds possible.
Donors get 32 plots for each resident in a town making huge builds possible.
Absolutely no pay-to-win. Donors get an honorary title, but not game-changing perks (aka "free" stuff).
All block and inventory interactions are logged. Griefing and stealing has become pointless because anyone can see who did it using /prism i (use /prism i off to turn off the inspector)
Players can set personal warp points with /sethome name and then use them with /home name
Towns may create 2 outposts. One for a freezer and one for a mine. You can teleport between these outposts and your town.
Donor towns may create up to 10 outposts to help protect off-site farms, freezers or mining areas in the world.

Explore the map on Dynmap and plan your journey. You can chat on Dynmap if you register an account while you are on the server using /dynmap webregister
Moderators have all the tools they need to solve any crime on the server. They can become invisible and investigate reported players, they can see who killed your animals, they can inspect player's inventories, they can kick and ban players and much more.
The server can load and unload (new) plugins without the need for a server restart.
Corrupted chunks can now easily be regenerated.
Scheduled daily server restart after the backup is done. It's scheduled between 8AM and 11AM CET.
Town mayors may claim a vanity (embassy) plot right outside of spawn to advertise their town with. Ask staff if you wish to claim one.
Much, much more.

The TnFC server runs the TechnodeFirmaCraft mod pack which uses an unofficial copy of TFC. The mod pack is available on the AT Launcher. See our Servers page for the current version of TnFC that we're using and the correct share code. Currently we are running version 3.7.1 of the TnFC mod pack.
TnFC installation instructions:
HQM Quest Line
If you wish you can install optional mods (listed in a green font) like Dynamic Lights, Better Foliage, Presence Footsteps. Just whatever you do don't install Prattle.
Then manually download these mods and put them in the mods folder of your TnFC instance. It's usually located in the ATLauncher\instances folder in whatever name you gave your TnFC instance.
Read the signs at spawn, they are there for a reason.
/server (gives a list of available servers
/server freebietfc (go to the Freebie TFC server)
/server donortfc (go to the Donor TFC server)
/server donortfchc (go to the Donor TFC Hardcore server)
/server jail (go to the jail server)
/server lobby (go to the Lobby server)
You can use these channels to chat in:
You can join those channels with the following commands respectively:
While you are in one of these channels, you won't pick up chat from other channels so keep that in mind. Being in the town channel for example should only give you chat from fellow town members. That should greatly reduce the "noise" in chat.
/tgui, /tgui town, /tgui plot, etc. (provides a GUI interface to use Towny commands)
/towny (Looku towny commands)
/town new TownName (create your very own town!)
/town add PlayerName (invite someone to join your town)
/plot forsale (Mayor can set plots for sale which town members can then claim as their own. Remember: we don't use currency so don't set a price.)
/plot notforsale (Cancel a plot being for sale)
/plot claim (Residents can claim a plot that has been put up for sale by the mayor.)
People who are not part of a town, can't switch inside that town. This means they can't open things like doors, chests, tool racks, barrels, etc. To further protect such items from fellow town members or outside of a town, you can use Lockette. Simply place a sign on anything you wish to make your own private property and type [private] on the first line.
If you need help and there aren't any mods or admins on the server, you can open a ticket.
/ticket-open YourQuestionHere (this opens a new ticket with your question)
/ticket-list (View your tickets)
/ticket-check # (Check your ticket with number #)
/ticket (this prints the help, don't type "/ticket help" as that would create a ticket with "help" as it contents. We know that's stupid.)
Block and inventory logging
If you suspect someone griefed you or stole something, you can check to see what happened with Prism. You can turn on the inspection wand with:
Now you can left click blocks, chests, tool racks, etc. and see who placed/destroyed/opened/picked them up.
If you right click a block with air above it, you'll see the history of the air block. Maybe it was broken, burned, etc.
To turn off the inspector use:
/prism i off
We can also do more complicated look-ups of events like killed animals, picked up items, etc. This requires a bit more knowledge of prism so if you need help with that ask a staff member or look up how to do it in the Prism documentation.
Personal warp points / home
You can set "home" using /sethome. You can set more then 1 home using:
You can teleport to your homes using
You can chat on Dynmap if you register an account while you are on the TFC server. Use
You should get a code. On the Dynmap web page, if you click the button under chat labeled: "Chat Requires Login" you can use the code you got in game to register an account.
