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

    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?
