    I agree. I have a cap set at 1000 and allowing only admins increase the cap. It says it changed, but it doesn't.

    Was wondering if anyone else got holes left in the world after using /regen?

    @TowelieDOH: Go

    Agree. Limit no longer works. i.e. I have default set to 1000, and max to -1. Then I limit -1, I am still capped at 1000.

    Worldedit's excellent debug system told me to report this error, so here I am.

    this was the first problem i've ever had using it.

    the server crashed with a NullPointerException when I tried to overlay wheat on farmland. I can give a full error report if you need it, but I'd rather not take up half the comments page.


    Spice up your server with more mobs! no spout required! Or if More Mobs aren't your speed, maybe you should revamp your server's non-hostile mobs with BetterPassives, the plugin designed to fix Notch's bad passive mob spawning system.

    How do I regenerate a large selection? If I select a large area, and type regen, it only regenerates the chunk I am in, not the entire area. I am trying to change a taiga biome to a plains or at least a forest.

    Thanks a ton!

    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.
