    Thats an easy fix. The message is actaully telling you the error "Unable to determine schematic format"

    Worldedits schematic save and load needs a format.


    schem save mce theNameIChoose


    schem load mce theNameIChoose

    @Kervinou: Go

    This is the only name you can have :p If you want, you can do /mvm set alias Skywars to rename it Skywars, and you can use that when you /mvtp to the world, instead of island-0

    @PrinceRocks: Go

    Hmm..schematic format.. So when you save your schematics, what is the exact command you run? schem save <name> Or do you put anything after the name? Because that can ruin the format. Also, make sure schematic names have no spaces in them
