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

NOTE: This version is for Bukkit. Looking for the Minecraft Forge version?

WorldEdit has no impact on your server when not in use. Only users that you trust can use WorldEdit, but you can extend this trust with a permission plugin. Try WorldEdit today!

    Ok you ABSOLUTELY need to update the formats for Schematic cause computers are now saving them in a Schematic format but world edit wont take that as a format because the only formats are mcedit. Make new formats so I can load my schematics plz! :'(

    i cant get worldedit to work. i have the permissions and it says the command worked but nothing happens. i have reinstalled several times and this is the first time ive ever had a issue.

    //replace air water
    147 blocks have been replaced

    nothing happens, no lag, no crash just the server keeps running fine. there isnt even a error. the server thinks the command ran fine when in reality it isnt running

    <<reply 774725="">>

    You'll need to set that up in your permisions file. OP is an instant * node, so you'll have to find a way of negating worldedit for OPs

    This is way overdue, but the greatest plugin in Bukkit history - obviously.

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