    hello, I have an idea. How about using a command like /type to type a phrase out of the specified block; like this: "/type diamond hello" this will type hello at the center of the crosshair out of diamond. will this be possible?

    iv got two idea for world edit

    1. 1)how about making a wall were its like outline but you can do other function like randomise other blocks into the wall eg stone brick wall as a main block with 20% cracked and %20 mossy brick to make the wall look old and frail and the command could be wall <main blocktype><another block type>%<percentage of blocks randomised> soo wall 98 4%20 which would be a stone brick outline with %20 cobblestone randomised into it
    2. 2)and the other idea i have for world edit is spaceing eg sp 1 4 which would be 1 air block after every block of cobblestone they would be extremely helpful when making walls like around castles or making a randomised greifbait house or something like that.

    Is there a way to make the brush ignore water?

    For example a sphere brush that can be used to build under water?

    As it is now I get stuck in the middle of the sphere cause it builds the sphere centered on th block of water right in front of me

    1.4.4? When I used /br sphere air 5, huge square chunks disappeared and didn't load until I restarted. its very buggy.

    When will this be 1.4.4 friendly?

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