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

WorldEdit has been supported for every version of Minecraft since 2010 (MC Alpha), and has no impact on your server when not in use. By default, only users 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!

Watch WorldEdit in Use

Three-Step Install

  • Step 1. Download WorldEdit and extract the WorldEdit.jar file into your "plugins/" folder
  • Step 2. Either give op or, if you have a permissions plugin, give the permission nodes.
  • Step 3. Run your server!

See the the installation page if you are not using Bukkit. To learn how to use WorldEdit, read our wiki.

    Unfortunatelly by moving packages inside your .jar you totally broke all plugins which uses worldedit. :(

    Now we need special version for 5.x and other for 6.x because imports doesnt match packages inside jar.

    Can you create a complete language file for WorldEdit and WorldGuard with all their messages please? If it is not too much complicated.

    The actual CB Version as of current is CraftBukkit version git-Bukkit-1.7.2-R0.3-14-g8f8716c-b3042jnks...I think the other version that said 1.7.4 was the error, now they are right.
