    getting exceptions that look like world edit with 1.8, probably going to need to update to the beta version and lose it's use with plotme in creative :(

    ( I get a set command in logs, then a block state error and restart. I was able to originally cause this effect in test with big edits. However our creative players have a 1000 block limit so unlikely to be that. It could of course be AWE we use with w/e)

    For me WE 5.6.3 is working fine with 1.8. The only exception for me is e.g. written books in chests because there is no NMS Support yet.

    I'm having the same problem! We created a new 1.8 world and I just started moving chests and such over, however it seems that is no longer possible?

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    Copying chests does not seem to work anymore since 6.0! Is there any plugins that will fill the gap now or did you add something in the config?

    Was looking to move the player builds to 1.8 world but this mean people stuff in chest content wont move.

    That's why regular backups are important.

    I am using WE 6.0 b1 its API to load .schematic and paste it ingame, however this does work only on small schematic (253b) but not on the bigger one (9kb). Here is my code:

    PS: I would also appreciate advice how to get rid of the deprecation.

    Thanks ;)
