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

(Also available as Forge and LiteLoader mods!)

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!

    I am using the command:

    //schem save mcedit file1


    //schem load mcedit file1

    but when loading I get the error:

    "file1 is not of the MCEdit schematic format!"

    I have also tried saving and loading using the mce format but get the same error. Any ideas?

    ever since i updated to residence 2.6.2  things involving the wooden axe have been glitching horribly. the x,y,x axis are getting of sometimes extremely off...i now have a under ground tunnel permanently on my server because it crashed the server doing that and cant undo it....
