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!


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!

    @stevevbrewer: Go

    Essentials allows you to define in the config which commands will be prioritized as essentials commands. (Overridden commands).

    You can access any essentials command using the alternative prefix of e.

    /einfo /eban /etp /eenchant /ehome

    That's actually a very good idea! That would be extremely helpful

    I don't know if I've ever suggested this to you guys before, but could you add a //roll command to compliment the //rotate command? It's rotation around a horizontal axis, instead of a vertical one. I figure since MCEdit supports rolling then WorldEdit should as well :)

    @nameguy1: Go

    I think i understand what you are saying allowing people set a cretin amount of blocks, i have seen this in classic servers too, would be a rather good idea, but would it actually be used..?

    @xwireless: Go

    World edit does not read protection so the idea of people not being able to do that in protected areas would never work as you cant log, rollback or stop worldedit with anything to be honest. But the idea of being able to have those nodes is good, but its not really a wise idea to give normal users access to worldedit.

    @stevevbrewer: Go

    I don't think its possible, its one of those things where essentials always makes a command that is used by a different very popular plugin and essentials will not change or edit that command, so if someone knows how awesome, if they don't or you cant then you might want to post it as a future updated ticket :)

    How can I disable the /info command? I need the essentials /info command but the WorldEdit one is taking priority and nobody uses it.

    Can you add like a permission: worldedit.region.set.<Amount of blocks>

    so if I put for a group: worldedit.region.set.1000 they would be able to set anything with 1000 as the maximum amount of blocks and it would only work if you can build in that area (if not your region you cant)

    @605 nhoclesnar

    im sorry but you seem to have no idea what im talking about.......

    Im not talking about placing and removing of 1 block...........and im already talkin about a creative server......

    Im talking about having to type, set 20 (example) 1000`s of times, and a way to prevent that, which i already have in classic, so this is a HUGE setback from classic minecraft, how can the paid version be beaten by classic???

    try building a huge huge huge building................ with complex shapes, like non rectangular windows, i dont want to type the same thing over and over and over, thats why MCQUAI (minecraft classic custom server software) has static mode, you enable it and input a command, and it remains active untill disabled............

    Then you just build cuboid glass by clicking instead of typing 1 command per cuboid action...

    to prevent having to type so much, if i want to type so much ill become a novel writer :)

    @NitroMeteor: Go

    Really? Do you have to put all cap and criticize this page for such a small problem? Fix your own behavior before someone has to fix it for you.

    @nameguy1: Go

    That is useless isn't it? If you want to right click to place glass and left click to remove that glass block, you can just change your gamemode into creative and do that yourself.

    @NikoKun: Go

    That's not possible yet I think. However, you can try to open a ticket to request that as a new feature.

    @fondelaar: Go

    The command is

    //schem save/load mcedit [name]

    I agree that it is irritating, and that I prefer the old way.
