  • 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

NOTE: This version is for Bukkit. Looking for the Minecraft Forge version?

    @sk89q I experienced this with the version uploaded on November 3rd: Line 34: 2012-11-06 13:00:11 [INFO] [WorldEdit] Loading WorldEdit v5.4.5

    Did you mean that, or was it fixed in a devbuild after that?

    Have you updated? This was fixed two weeks ago or so, and it should be in the newest version.

    Anyone else is having issues with the limit command?

    My default is 1000 blocks, and when limit 9999 for example is used, it does say that the limit is changed, but editing more than 1000 blocks still says "Max blocks changed in an operation reached (1000)"

    <<reply 1047966>>

    Is this because Notepad won't show line breaks correctly in YAML, causing it to break if I force a line break in? If it is, is there an alternative to using Notepad++ or other fancy apps to view it?

    /region select <regionname>



    Commands do not work in the console. Using command blocks, event handling plugins, and macros this would be extremely powerful for servers. So please add them if you can.
    If you will/can not implement this into WorldEdit is there another plugin that can do this? I can't seem to find any others.

    @brewno2k: Go Yeah, known issue. Mojang reversed it a while back and a lot of people didn't want it changed, although IMO it should be chagned.

    The red/blue/green lines is done with WorldEdit CUI, a client mod.
