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!

    @RenHax: Go

    Use cauldron build "cauldron-1.7.10-1.1187.03.119-server.jar" with the latest world edit.That will then function properly

    I have the latest WorldEdit and I can not get my wooden axe "wand" to work properly. It populates into my quick slots, but, when I try to select a group of blocks, it says that my wooden axe is bound, blah, blah, blah. I've tried to change the wand tool in the config file. I have deleted and reloaded WorldEdit...anybody know why this happens and how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi! I'm having a problem: I configured the snapshot function, and it works great in the normal "world". But in the nether I get "java.lang.NullPointerException", even though it finds the snapshot to use (world_nether).

    @dragonfire967: Go

    no that is not possible as each server has its own world edit plugin running, you would have to use a multiword plugin to get such accomplished. there is no bungeecord plugin that would allow you to select chunks of data and then paste on to another connected server.

    for example its like copying text on ur laptop and hoping your desktop can past that text, since their on same LAN though using their own independent programs.

    Hey, question.

    I'm thinking of starting up a couple of servers connected to each other by bungee (or related plugin for server linking), and wanted to know if it is possible to copy a selection on one server, and paste it on the other without needing to make a schematic. I'm planning on having a main server where my playerbase would be, and the second being my test server which is a mirror copy of the main server where I update things, test updates, and make upgrades to any structures before transferring them to the main server.

    Hello Everybody.

    I have a great idea for new update (maybe) I think world edit need a special security system so I would like to recommend CoreProtect to spectate hide informations about region. If sy try to grief in region , the owner can search the griefer. I know CoreProtect is a same plugin, but in world edit I think it better in this plugin. command example: /region flag <regionname> co true enable the spy command for owner.
