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!

    Hey, I was wondering if there is a reason signs would stop pasting with text on them? It was working fine earlier today, but then it suddenly stopped pasting the text. Any help would count! Thanks!

    It suddenly stiopped working for me. So I downgraded to 5.6.4. No. doesn't work. So I downgraded to 5.6.3. Doesn't work either. What is going on all of a sudden? It literally randomly broke? I am using the last SPigot 1.7.9 build.

    The error I receive when I try to do set air (or anything to that effect)

    java.lang.Reflect.InvocationTargetException: Null
