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?

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!

    @B3A6T: Go @B3A6T

    Try using MCEdit. It's a third party program that's perfect for pasting large schematics into a minecraft world. It's not that WorldEdit cannot do the job, it's that a server just doesn't have the processing power to paste large schematic files. Shut down the world, open MCEdit, load your world inside MCEdit, and move around until you're at where you want to paste it, then push the import button at the bottom and find your schematic file. You'll have the option to move around a ghost-block version of it before finalizing its location. Hope this helps.

    @Battlehammer123: Go

    You could run worldguards /stoplag command immediately when the server loads and hope it has enough power to get the command through before the server lags out. /stoplag kills all entities, which will get rid of all the primedTNT.

    It's been like two weeks and i haven't really gotten anything...CAN ANYONE HELP ME??? I'll re post the problem:

    I need some help. My friend decided to screw around with world edit, and now with a very important world i have on my server, whenever I start it up, there's immediate TNT which explodes and crashes the server. This is only on that world though. I've tried using different logs to go back to an earlier version, but that command is set into the server. How do I fix it?

    Also the version is 1.7.2

    Pretty please, can you fix it so this old API method works again in WE6?

    Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.sk89q.worldedit.LocalSession.getSelectionWorld()Lcom/sk89q/worldedit/LocalWorld;

    Several old plugins which aren't updated rely on it for selection (including Multiverse Portals - which is pretty much broken without it). It's just sending the selection to the plugin as far as I understand it. It should be possible to support both the calls rather than dropping legacy support.

    Thanks for considering.
