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
  • Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics

This page is for the Bukkit server plugin. Need the WorldEdit Forge mod? (use the Forge version for single player)

We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    Worldedit's excellent debug system told me to report this error, so here I am.

    this was the first problem i've ever had using it.

    the server crashed with a NullPointerException when I tried to overlay wheat on farmland. I can give a full error report if you need it, but I'd rather not take up half the comments page.


    Spice up your server with more mobs! no spout required! Or if More Mobs aren't your speed, maybe you should revamp your server's non-hostile mobs with BetterPassives, the plugin designed to fix Notch's bad passive mob spawning system.

    How do I regenerate a large selection? If I select a large area, and type regen, it only regenerates the chunk I am in, not the entire area. I am trying to change a taiga biome to a plains or at least a forest.

    Thanks a ton!

    Can't seem to find the permission to override the "use-inventory" option in the config. Anyone know what it is?

    v5.4.3 has some problems for me.

    1. 1 - /fixwater no longer works properly, it just replaces broken water with stationary water
    2. 2 - limit doesn't seem to work any more. It says the limit was changed, but you are still limited by the number of blocks set in a config, even as an op with full permissions.

    Try reinstalling Java.

    It works fine with the latest version on 1.3.2, so take your bossy attitude elsewhere.
