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

This page is for the Bukkit server plugin. Need the WorldEdit Forge mod? (use the Forge version for single player)

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!


We also recommend WorldGuard, CommandBook and CraftBook!

    @kron98: Go

    I am not sure. But maybe your Issue is that you are using the Client Version of WorldEdit for changing Times. This does not affect the Server. To change the Time on a Server you can use /time set or if you have an CommandPlugin like Commandbook /time night/day

    Expanding vertically even for a one block length seems to causes it to cut all the blocksout of the area using the regen command. I tried it on a one by 20 regen area and in the middle caused a 16x 16 area to suddenly be cut out down to the void. Using 1.4.2 2
