  • 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?

    are you trying to paste something fairly large, each server is different, so the number of blocks you can paste will change depending on your server.

    if the thing you are trying to move is big, split it up into sections that you can paste.
    to work out the size you will probably need to experiment a bit, but once oyu get used to it, it will be easy.

    Hi, I'm having a problem..

    Every now and then, when I try to copy and paste, minecraft crashes with this error:

    To make it even weirder, the paste does happen, and there is no error reports in console. (I tried to head into the Report a Bug section, but the error "Bandwidth Limit Exceeded" popped up.)

    (I'm running these plugins: )

    Hi. I made schematics from one of my worlds on an old server that I would like to take those schematics and put them on a new map on my new server. I have 4 schematics in the file format .schematic; how do I go about putting those schematics on the new map on my new server?

    Any reason why it doesn't copy item frames?
