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 been supported for every version of Minecraft since 2010 (MC Alpha), and has no impact on your server when not in use. By default, only users 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!

Watch WorldEdit in Use

Three-Step Install

  • Step 1. Download WorldEdit and extract the WorldEdit.jar file into your "plugins/" folder
  • Step 2. Either give op or, if you have a permissions plugin, give the permission nodes.
  • Step 3. Run your server!

See the the installation page if you are not using Bukkit. To learn how to use WorldEdit, read our wiki.

    Advice please. superpickaxe destroying protected areas. Do I need to find a way to disable it or is not correct? Or is it a bug?

    good for creative servers and those who are lazy in a survival world, or pehaps to make large cities. This would go great with my grief prevention plugin.
