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

This page is for the Bukkit plugin. Looking for the WorldEdit Forge mod (works on single player)?

    Yes, everything is running perfectly fine with both WorldEdit and WorldGuard on Spigot 1.8.3. I'm currently using WorldEdit Build #3369 and WorldGuard Build #1589.

    Anyone looking for updates (such as one that may help you out with 1.8.3...) should pay attention here:

    Those who look in WorldEdit's master branch will see they added the 1.8.3 adapter approximately 13 hours ago.
