    Not sure if this will help anyone, since I haven't actually tried this myself, but I came across this page when looking for a fix for the 1.9 builds. Apparently people on the page HERE have had success by renaming the "spigot.jar" file to "custom18.jar" and then setting up the server to use the custom18.jar file.

    Like I said, I haven't tried this, so I don't know if it will work or not, but you can take a look at that page if you want.

    That's the issue I had when testing. I decided to wait for a stable release build.

    For the life of me, I can't figure out why the server won't load the dev builds for 1.9. Every time I try to use it, it just breaks everything, I just tried the WorldEdit Build #3482 and yet again it failed to initialize. Any help?

    Hey guys! Even for an experienced programmer, updating can take a LLOOONNNGGG time! Especially for large updates like the 1.9 update, which added TONS of new things! So though nagging doesn't help, PLEASE UPDATE TO 1.9!!! (Sorry if I'm nagging too!) Oh, and how come the CommandBook plugin is still 1.7.9? Did you guys drop it? I love command book!

    Hello Strahan201!

    I was having a similar problem, downloading this guy fixed it:

    Also, some biome names were changed, for instance flower_forest is now mutated_forest. you can check by selecting an area and typing biomeinfo


  • Avatar of Strahan201 Strahan201 Apr 21, 2016 at 15:00 UTC - 0 likes

    Setbiome and biomelist do not appear to work properly. No biomes are listed when you do biomelist and setbiome rejects whatever you try to use as the new biome.

Did you know that you can find WorldEdit's source code on GitHub? You can find it at
