    What version of spigot and world edit are you using? I'm having the same issue on a server that used to handle millions of blocks at a time.

    I'm running the latest spigot 1.8.8 and world guard/world edit 6.1

    Your pc/server sucks. I can easily move 16millions blocks and it doesnt even crash. So shut up and stop insulting the creator, because of your crappy Pc or server

    Hey, im going to script a plugin where i can set a startpoint and save it to the config. Whenever someone joins the server a new city will be created where 20 people get placed in. When the citie is full a next little city will be created.

    But for this i need to create a new Selection on Java. Who is that possible. I just know the method that i can get the selection from a player. But how can create a new one?

    Hope for a great and fast awnser :) regards marcel.

    PS: if you can help me, you can also add me on skype: maier96180 (name: .DeTowelie)

    Hi. Your plugin is amazing. But lately, it fucking sucks. Why? Let me think. Well first, I used this command here: "/cyl stone 50 10" then it crashed. And every time a player tries to get REMOTELY close to where I used the command, boom crash. So then I started playing on my alt account. And me and my friend were making a map. We made a hsphere 50 in diameter, crash. Luckily I figured out a way to spawn us both somewhere else. Then he got to close to that area. Crash. Now my best friend can NEVER play on my server. WOW!!! Then I made a map and I used /hphyramid sandstone 50. Crash. Now the Fucking Owner Can't Get On His Own Server. I am pissed off. I am not using your plugin anymore, even if you can help me. Fix this in your next update, or I will spread this extremely common bug across my youtube. How's it feel knowing you broke a server with a basic command? I. AM. PISSED.

    Is there any way to make the smooth brush only affect one type of block? /mask grass and /mask !glass both aren't working. I have grass and glass near each other and only want to smooth the grass.

    Should be when you make a selection wand, you do item and any blocks in your selection should turn into items
