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

WorldEdit has been supported for every version of Minecraft since 2010 (MC Alpha), and has no impact on your server when not in use. By default, only users you trust can use WorldEdit, but you can extend this trust with a permission plugin. Try WorldEdit today!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    I cant seem to get this plugin to work. Or any other plugins to work. I put the plugin into the plugins folder and when i joined in the server, it did nothing. Am i missing something? I have a disguise plugin, a timber plugin, a pets plugin, and worldedit. Please help me! I am using 1.6.4. Also, This is a private server running on my internet. Is that Effecting it? I have not torched the file at all. I saw META-INF in there. Is that blocking the plugins? I am super new to plugins and i do not know much. I looked up a video and it did not help me. Does have to be Java or WinRAR? I barley know anything about plugins! (I Instaled bukkit on the server so that is good)

    When an op types /we, it outputs the returned message to everyone in the server.

    Item frames are entitys, not blocks

    Is there a way to bring item frames with you when world editing? Item frames seem to always disappear when I copy and paste something.

    Is the NMS class file for Cauldron ( ex MCPC+ ) 1.7.2 in the works? I'm getting errors on my cauldron 1.7.2+worldedit latest and 1.7.2 version setting up schematics for IslandWorld plugin making islands with modded blocks.

    Thank you for your time and the hard work.

    Yes. Use this WorldGuard Addon: AsyncWorldEdit
    You can download it on the Spigot Forum.

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