  • Use hand-bound tools and brushes to quickly make changes
  • Generate spheres, cylinders, cuboids, forests, pumpkin patches, and snowy areas

  • Choose an area and have it instantly restored from backups
  • Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics

    @Nanights: Go

    For that you need WorldGuard right?

    By the way, we've changed that tool in the config to iron ingot because of the tripwire usability in 1.3.1. ;)

    Can you add possibility for
    //set RedStone
    //set Diode
    //set Repeater
    //set 331
    //set 356

    Because I know you can set blocks as RedStone torches so I'd think it would make sense to be able to set redstone and repeaters/diodes.

    rotate blocks (Chests, EnderChests, Repeaters, Stairs, Slabs, and Logs?) to different directions?

    Maybe add new item names for the side logs like //set log:ItemData:[UD/NS/WE]
    as in UD= Up Down. NS= North South. WE: West East.
    Just some ideas.. Maybe implement these for stairs, slabs, and other blocks such as these.
