  • 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

    I think there is an issue with the way non-cubic areas are saved, because I had an issue trying to cut and paste a spherical area. It cut the sphere just fine, and then pasted a rectangular prism like you described.

    There's a problem, not sure the exact issue, but using Melon and/or Emerald in W/E creates a block with some kind of error, that, unless re-worldedited, just causes client crashes...

    If I select an L shaped area using polygon selection, then copy it and save it as a schematic, the schematic is saved as if the area was rectangular. The problem is that inside the hole of the L, I have a different area that I dont want copied. Is there some reason why schematic files cant save a polygonal area? If not, could this feature be added?

    We were having this horrible issue on the server I play on. The only way to fix it and keep Core Protect is to disable WorldEdit logging within Core Protect.

    Having an issue on my server. I created a gigantic box with walls (200x200 for each side, plus had no issues with the floor, however, when i try to create the ceiling, (a 200x200 square) it hangs the server. the elevation is at 249y the build hight is above 250.

    i tried lowering the block count, trying to do one row at a time, then shifting the region over by one, however it took way too long, and i tried increasing it to ten rows (200x10) and it still hung.

    I figured it may have been just the server being really bogged down at the time or something. i tested to see if the rest of the box could be edited. The entire box (203,006 blocks exactly) was instantly removed, and replaced. No problem there. :\

    i dunno whats wrong, i tried setting, i tried replacing air, i tried copy pasting the bottom pannel, but nothing :c

    it only hangs when i try to edit in the ceiling...
