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

(Also available as Forge and LiteLoader mods!)

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!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    Can't seem to find the permission to override the "use-inventory" option in the config. Anyone know what it is?

    v5.4.3 has some problems for me.

    1. 1 - /fixwater no longer works properly, it just replaces broken water with stationary water
    2. 2 - limit doesn't seem to work any more. It says the limit was changed, but you are still limited by the number of blocks set in a config, even as an op with full permissions.

    It works fine with the latest version on 1.3.2, so take your bossy attitude elsewhere.
