  • Choose an area and have it instantly restored from backups
  • Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics

    Tested out the custom block support on custom mods like IC and BC, problem is that once you start populating your server with mods you soon run out of block id's and then some of the mods stat using block id's above 255, and World Edit doesn't really handle this well tried to change from id 3 to 433:11 and it turn into id 177:11 some sapling so how does world edit manage block id's above 255?

    I spotted this in the console when I started my server:

    2012-09-09 02:49:53 [SEVERE] Nag author: '' of 'WorldGuard' about the following: This plugin is not properly shutting down its async tasks when it is being reloaded.  This may cause conflicts with the newly loaded version of the plugin

Did you know that you can find WorldEdit's source code on GitHub? You can find it at
