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 server plugin. Need the WorldEdit Forge mod? (use the Forge version for single player)

    the essentials plugin is up to date, worldedit and worldguard being indispenssable for my server, I expect a version compatible with the 1.4.5r1.0. I think we are many in this case. 1.4.5r1.0 you work on? or is it that you do not know already and work only on 1.4.6?

    sorry for my english.

    Is this plugin updated for 1.4.6? And if not, when I reinstall the plugin will I have to region ALL the region again?
