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 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!

    I cant seem to get this plugin to work. Or any other plugins to work. I put the plugin into the plugins folder and when i joined in the server, it did nothing. Am i missing something? I have a disguise plugin, a timber plugin, a pets plugin, and worldedit. Please help me! I am using 1.6.4. Also, This is a private server running on my internet. Is that Effecting it? I have not torched the file at all. I saw META-INF in there. Is that blocking the plugins? I am super new to plugins and i do not know much. I looked up a video and it did not help me. Does have to be Java or WinRAR? I barley know anything about plugins! (I Instaled bukkit on the server so that is good)
