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

NOTE: This version is for Bukkit. Looking for the Minecraft Forge version?

    As I can't figure out the ticket section, I'll settle for this area. I think this is a show stopper: I'm on Minecraft 1.8, server Spigot-Compiled 1.8.x, and worldedit will NOT work, producing this error in console.
