  • Level an entire mountain and replace it with natural looking terrain
  • Use hand-bound tools and brushes to quickly make changes
  • Generate spheres, cylinders, cuboids, forests, pumpkin patches, and snowy areas

  • Choose an area and have it instantly restored from backups
  • Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics

    I think a brush is better for that.

    You can also have a higher variety in flowers/plants this way.

    This is just an idea for the plugin. There should be a command such as bonemeal for example and when you select a certain region (generally being crops/grass) it will bonemeal that area which aka grows the crops and grass/flowers on grass blocks. Not sure if this idea was suggested before or cannot be done but I thought this would be really really helpful to a lot of people!

    When I type in a craftscript command, it says failed to find an installed scripting engine. I installed the latest java, why doesn't it find the one bundled with oracle java 8? I tried to install rhino, but it wouldn't appear on the path!

    Current version is not compatible with latest build of CraftBukkit 1.8. It has worked with previous versions so it is something with the update.

    I have pasted my log here.

    I am also sending this to the bug page but pasted it here to notify the public for those having the same issue.
