  • Level an entire mountain and replace it with natural looking terrain
  • Use hand-bound tools and brushes to quickly make changes

    Haven't gotten an answer to this question yet.

    I cannot get the permissions to work for worldedit. Im trying to give certain users (not ops) access to the wand and compass, but when I give the permissions, reload, they do not have access. Im using permissionsbukkit. I went through the support forums and couldnt find anything.

    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.


Did you know that you can find WorldEdit's source code on GitHub? You can find it at
