  • 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

    Using WorldEdit1229 with 1.3.1RB craftbukkit I get the same message when pasting in enderchests or the new wood stairs. New slab/steps seem to paste fine.

    Download the 1.3.1 version hear[World Edit 1.3.1]←

    • - Updated for changes to SpoutAPI
    • - Fixed FloatingTreeRemover (/tool deltree) to work correctly with jungle trees
    • - Fix bPermissions instanlled check
    • - Add a -f (friendly) flag to butcher which applies -a, -n, -p, and -g, and a -g flag which allows butchering of iron and snow golems
    • - Add FlatRegion interface and an associated iterator (for developers!)
    • - Fix a NPE with brush using a global mask and no brush mask
    • - Fixed shift not updating polygonal regions properly.
    • - Add support for expand with reverse dir for Cylinder & Ellipsoid
    • - Make inset/outset use varargs contract/expand, so they can be used with cylinders and ellipses.
    • - Add positive() to Vector and Vector2D
    • - In WorldGuard, teleport/spawn location yaw/pitch should now work.
    • - Register command permissions, integrate with the Bukkit help API

    • - Clean up some stray 128 values and update the fallbacks to 256
    • - Add support for 1.2.4 and newer
    • - Updated for new 1.2 and 1.2.4 blocks, items, and mobs
    • - Fix Dispensers, Furnaces and remove redundant casts.

    @CraftedWarrior59: Go

    Yes, but can be buggy. Use with caution. Do small WorldEdits, not big ones.

    I really need this plugin soon. My players are getting restless with the no-plugins temp world I set up
