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?

    Would it be possible to add a slow build feature so large edits don't lag the server like maybe 1 block per second or something

    could you possible add a cool down feature for the compass with a bypass node and also a separate distance limiter so for example you could give normal users a node which enables them to use the compass feature once every 5 minutes with the max distance of 50 block?

    That would be really awesome and helpful :)

    Is there a way to disable the "position 1 set to <x,y,z>" and "position 2 set to <x,y,z>" from the pos commands? I would love to disable it for just my non admins (so they don't know the sign they use initiates worldedit, and so it doesn't spam their chat). I wouldn't mind the message just being completely removed though either.
