WorldEdit is an easy-to-use in-game world editor for Minecraft, supporting both single player and multiplayer.

  • 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

    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

    Would it be possible to add a remove itemframe command? Item Frame griefers are really getting annoying and you can't worldedit them away. So it takes a while to clean.
