  • 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!)

    Is World Edit 1.3.1 yet?

  • Avatar of dylpickles1997 dylpickles1997 Aug 03, 2012 at 07:16 UTC - 0 likes

    Can someone please answer this? (I'd be willing to pay):

    Couldn't there be a way, whenever using set,replacing blocks, importing schematics, and generating shapes that they load a configurable amount of blocks at a time, eliminating lag and crashes? If so, a feature like that would REALLY change everything on my server.. I could import anything I wanted from any download.. it would be just great.. so great... pwease

    Anyone else run into an issue where saving a schematic file doesn't save chest contents? Copy/paste works fine, but if i copy -> save -> clearclipboard -> load -> paste, any chests in the paste are empty.

    I've updated to CB 1.2.5-RB5, tried both worldedit 5.3 and a 5.4 snapshot from today.

    I had EXACTLY the same. So after hours of reading files and tinkering. I found a file called "Wepif" (I think it was that) And I deleted it, then it worked. Hope this helps you aswell! :D
