WorldEdit is an easy-to-use in-game world editor for Minecraft, supporting both single player and multiplayer.

  • Fix griefing and other issues without shutting down your server
  • Quickly create, replace or delete thousands of blocks in seconds
  • 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
  • Use your compass to quickly teleport to areas by left clicking or using /jumpto
  • Choose an area and have it instantly restored from backups
  • Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics

(Also available as Forge and LiteLoader mods!)

WorldEdit has no impact on your server when not in use. Only users that you trust can use WorldEdit, but you can extend this trust with a permission plugin. Try WorldEdit today!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    @PhatMale: Go


    for example its like copying text on ur laptop and hoping your desktop can past that text, since their on same LAN</b> though using their own independent programs.

    heh Actually... I do this all the time, but it requires a plugin that a M$ Employee made, called MouseWithoutBorders, and allows you to use two different computers connected over a LAN (or the Internet, technically) through one system's keyboard and mouse. I use this to turn my laptop into a second monitor, but with the added benefit of not taxing the other system with any multi-tasking. The beautiful part is that it lets you do exactly what you said: CTRL+C on one computer, and CTL+V on another :D Works for text, pictures, documents (though not multiple selected, so multi-file copies I RAR them first), folders. I couldn't live w/o it anymore! lol

    But, what you said and what I pasted, unfortunately still does not change things in regards to a hubbed server. :\ I suspect that'd require some fancy coding that would be able to Schematic the copied and then transfer that schematic over to either every system connect (easiest), or only to the one the player warps to (which may have a momentary time delay), and then auto-loading the schematic for the player so it is ready to paste.

    (Sorry for the extremely off-topic post)

    Currently using 1.7.10, world edit was working "Okay" on 1.7.2 with a few console errors reported.

    But now upon expand vert and /regen on 1.7.10 - I log out, and log back in to see the area regened, but then a few minutes later the homes will be back as if the regening didn't occur.

    No errors in console. Never had this issue on any previous versions. Please update!
