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!

    Can someone tell me why it's not working?

  • Avatar of BlueJayofEvil BlueJayofEvil Oct 13, 2012 at 20:22 UTC - 0 likes

    Anything my friends or I make using WorldEdit (latest dev version) does not register its lighting correctly.
    Example: We made a glass-ceiling skyrail but the entire tunnel was dark and mob-filled, despite being in broad daylight (and having glowstone for lights on the side.)
    Even on our DynMap setup it shows these areas a dark/black.

    I'm convinced this is likely a WorldEdit issue since normal block placement doesn't get affected by this.

    can you please update it so that chest contents dont disappear from schematics

    @Flenix1: Go

    paste -a wont work. I am using the schematics to rollback an expired region to its original status. I need to clear out everything, including things that used to be air but are now a solid block. Basically, I just dont get why WorldEdit cant support polygons schematics, it seems like a worthwhile feature
