System Compatibility

TerraFirmaCraft (TFC) should work on any system which is capable of running the requisite versions of Minecraft and Minecraft Forge. TFC places a much higher load on your computer's processor than vanilla Minecraft and uses more memory as well, so performance may suffer on low-end systems.

All the images below are from a Windows installation but the same procedure applies to Linux and OS X systems as well, with a few minor differences which are noted in the text.

Note: All download links are the correct version. Make sure you are downloading the exact same version if you choose not to use the links provided.

Client Installation

Start with a vanilla install of Minecraft 1.7.10 using the official minecraft install launcher located at

If your Minecraft Launcher is running 1.8+:

  • Select the profile of your username
  • Click Edit Profile
  • Change Use Version: to "release 1.7.10"

Run once to create necessary files.

Build 78

Download and Install Minecraft Forge

Download: forge-1.7.10-

Once downloaded, double click and run the .jar file. A screen will pop up. The install path should be the default install path that minecraft installed into. If so just click OK to install forge.


When finished you should see a screen pop up:


Run minecraft again. At the profile selection dropdown, select Forge, fill in any login information necessary and click Edit Profile.


Double check the Use Version: dropdown to make sure that the correct version of forge is selected. Then click Save Profile and finally Play.


When you get to the main menu, exit out of Minecraft.

Download and Install TerraFirmaCraft

Download: TerraFirmaCraft-

Download TFC from the link above and copy the .jar file into the Mods folder in the minecraft/forge install.

System Default Location of 'mods' Folder
Linux ~/.minecraft/mods
OS X /Users/yourUserName/Library/Application Support/minecraft/mods
See additional instructions for OS X users below.
Windows \Users\yourUserName\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\Mods
You can get to this location quickly by typing in %appdata% into the location bar and navigate to .minecraft\mods\

Note: Do NOT unzip the file!


If you are on OS X then there are some extra steps you will have to take:

  • By default your Library folder is hidden and will not appear in the Finder. To make it visible, bring up a Terminal window and execute the following command:

    chflags nohidden ~/Library/

  • Depending upon your browser settings, when you download the TerraFirmaCraft zip file OS X may automatically unzip it and place it into a folder named 'TFC-0'. The download settings can be changed in your browser such that it doesn't unzip upon download. Find where your browser keeps its helper application settings and change the action of the zip file type to "always ask" or "save as."

TerraFirmaCraft should now be installed. Run minecraft again making sure your Profile is still set to Forge.
Once in game click the mods button and you should see something similar the following:


Server Installation


Forge Installer

Note: This also will install the minecraft_server.jar

Download: forge-1.7.10-

Note: It is always best to use the Forge version listed on the TFC download page.


Download: TerraFirmaCraft-

Create Installation Folder

Make a folder on your client computer where you want to start your installation. Example C:\TFC_Server.

Run the forge installer, choose Install server and type in your directory "C:\TFC_Server"

Create Mods Folder

Make a new folder mods in C:\TFC_Server -> C:\TFC_Server\mods

TerraFirmaCraft Install

Copy TFC- to C:\TFC_Server\mods

Note: Do NOT unzip the file!

Create Run File

Windows & Linux

Create a run.bat ( if you are on linux) file.

java -Xmn1G -Xms2G -Xmx2G -jar forge-1.7.10-

Note: You can also use the full path instead of only java.

OS X (Mac)

Create a run.command file.

cd "$(dirname "$0")"
exec java -Xmn1G -Xms2G -Xmx2G -jar forge-1.7.10-

chmod a+x the file before running it.

Copy to Host

If you are using a third party hosting service instead of running directly off of your client, copy your entire C:\TFC_Server folder over to the server. It should contain the 2 jar files, a library folder and a mods folder.

Starting up the Server

Start run.bat or (on linux you will have to do chmod +x first)
