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

WorldEdit has been supported for every version of Minecraft since 2010 (MC Alpha), and has no impact on your server when not in use. By default, only users you trust can use WorldEdit, but you can extend this trust with a permission plugin. Try WorldEdit today!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    I can't seem to get this to run on 1.2.5. I've tried 1.2.5-R1 and 1.2.5-R4, it says could not load plugin in the terminal. How do I get it to run?

    Any news on when worldedit is going to fix the timout issue when pasting any schematic? It's annoying getting timeouts of only 1KB schematics when i was able to paste 1MB or larger ones during alpha... I even tell the plugin to ignore air blocks and it still times out. Another thing is that undo on that schematic works fine, no timeout, yet pasting it times out. It's that specific command that triggers it.

    @dakester99yourface: Go

    Make sure your schematics are now in the WorldEdit/schematics/ folder, not in the root folder.

    @CraftRp: Go

    You can only set a global limit using limit or changing the value in the config. Add a feature request. I'll look at sk89q's source and see what I can do, however, I've been really busy, no guarantees.

    So i would like to ask. Is there ever a chance that Worldedit would have the option to check if the player worldediting has permission to build where they are worldediting... this would be amazing! -Dustin
