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

This page is for the Bukkit server plugin. Need the WorldEdit Forge mod? (use the Forge version for single player)

Need a way to distribute modpacks to friends or for a server? Check out my modpack launcher platform!

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?

  1. Download WorldEdit and extract the WorldEdit.jar file into your "plugins/" folder

  3. Run your server!

    Same errors as everyone else on the latest version. Compass commands /thru and /jumpto also give errors.

    No if you're not using any commands. WE doesn't do anything until you use a WE command.

    I will thank you so much if you update the command list of the wiki...

    Also I found fill command is very laggy even with small radius, a specific node for the radius of this command will be awsome...
