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

NOTE: This version is for Bukkit. Looking for the Minecraft Forge version?

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!

    That's why regular backups are important.

    I am using WE 6.0 b1 its API to load .schematic and paste it ingame, however this does work only on small schematic (253b) but not on the bigger one (9kb). Here is my code:

    PS: I would also appreciate advice how to get rid of the deprecation.

    Thanks ;)

    Hi, I wanted to announce that the author of the plugin to the new version is necompatibilní with CreativeControl, PlotMe in this sentence it is (written konzola) "This may mean That any block logger / intercepters addons / plugins / mods That you have installed will not intercept worlded's changes! Please notify the maintainer of the other addon about this."

    I need some help. My friend decided to screw around with world edit, and now with a very important world i have on my server, whenever I start it up, there's immediate TNT which explodes and crashes the server. This is only on that world though. I've tried using different logs to go back to an earlier version, but that command is set into the server. How do I fix it?

    @TWSSYesterday: Go

    looking quickly at the error you gave (after looking though all your other server log), its a bootup error, meaning having full/no access to the server will mean nothing. I do not belive there is a permission to allow the writing of config so permissions dont matter. My guess is Betas are never the most stable of things, i think its a bug that was not tested for.

    Hey there, using latest Spigot build and latest WorldEdit build on Bukkit Dev, getting this upon startup: I have full access to the server, the server's read/write permissions are correct too. Same issue arises on latest dev build. Config file isn't generating.

    Whyyyy :O

    i dont use world edit schematics however has a Bukkit plugin creator myself i believe i understand why all signs are blank.

    To get text on a sign using ... well any programming language the text must come from somewhere. I believe the .schematics file does not save the signs text, meaning when it comes to putting text on a sign, there is no source for the text to come from, meaning it can not write.

    to make it into simple terms, its nothing you are doing, its a WorldEdit fault.

    everything can be improved in one way or another.

    BTW, i was just checking out WorldEdit 6, i do not check this thread a lot so if you really want to talk to me, PM me or write on my plugins pages. Sorry i can not be any more help.

Did you know that you can find WorldEdit's source code on GitHub? You can find it at
