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

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!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

How do I install WorldEdit?

    @Phealoon: Go

    When you say your minecarft crashes..... does it give you a light blue screen which then goes black? I get that issue with world edit... i have found it only does that when using undo... i would recommend flying away a few chunks and then doing undo then flying back and it will not happen.

    Something is wrong when I try to use the command paste or undo. Every time I use those commands my MC client crashes. This has also happen to my other server admins.

    I have WorldEdit 5.3 and the latest Bukkit Recommended Build.

    Also, before you say it is a client side issue or java issue, this did not happen until AFTER the last recommended build.

    @Kiwz: Go

    Yea... it does not cause any issues, just a empty line on the screen when you log on, which actually i don't mind so much. :)

    @Kiwz: Go

    Nope, it does that.... maybe in the next update there will be a fix.
    Does not cause any issues except for the fact there is just a random empty line :)

    This is just a minor problem (if its even a problem).
    When a player logs into my server, worldedit is writing an empty line in the chat,
    right beneath my message of the day.

    Is it only me that is experiencing this issue, or can someone else confirm this?

    Would be great if WorldEdit could remove this empty line, if possible though.

    @Dagepaa: Go

    You set it up in the config for the worlds, you can do this. As for the person, you need to give them the permissions use WorldEdit.

    Is it possible to enable world edit for a specific person on a specific world? I don't see any permissions to do that. Maybe you cant.
