    Worldedit 5.3 works on my Bukkit Server 1.3.1 perfectly, a placebo 5.4 release for 1.3 would be nice though ;-)

    Download the snapshot and it works fine on 1.3.1 with CB 2317.

    Oh I know what that issue is like. The only solution so far for me when importing huge areas is to use mcedit. It's a bit tricky to get the hang of, but once you know how to use it it's great for that. Great if you don't run a huge server. If you do have a mega server, then stopping everything going on in your world long enough to replace the world could be a problem.

    On a less helpy note, WorldEdit 5.3 works okay with our latest RB, or no? I have players gnashing their teeth for the server to update. Can't update till worldedit can hack it.

    Doesn't seem to work with Craftbukkit 1.3.1 R1.0 I type wand into the console and get this error:


    and if I equip the wooden ax and use it to select first position and second position, It makes the selections alright but it breaks the block on the first selection. I didn't test it any further because i did not want to mess up my map.

    Thanks, I actually do use that... but that doesn't have anything to do with worldedit I believe

    Seems to work fine with 1.3.1 so far, but I noticed that the "regen" command has some really weird issues. Trying to update an NPC village resulted in half houses, etc.

    An update might be due. :)
