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)

    Something I just realized. It appears as if WorldEdit does not like to work above 128 in The End. Is this a bug, or?

    No, you're not having problems with this plugin, you're having problems understanding permissions. First, get PermissionsEx or something if you don't have it. Second, give the group you wish be able to use worldedit the node 'worldedit.*' and they can do anything.

    Thirdly, why the hell would anyone want to give worldedit access to non-ops?

    @gizmopinzo: Go

    Yes, go to /plugins/CoreProtect/config.yml and in the bottom somewhere it has "WorldEdit logging: true", change to false. I believe there's a /coreprotect reload command, otherwise restart the server.

    I seem to be getting this issue, please check it out. It's in my creative world for Donators. Only when i try to set Emerald blocks it gives me this error. Please check it out and PM me here. It's not just a chunk error, because in 2 other worlds i tried it as well it did the same thing. It would cause my server to go to a straight crasg/time out.

    same problem here, moved a new building from our build site, i believe it was only 60,000, and way back when there was a stable build out for 1.2.5 i have done over 400,000 without a crash.

    I do things.

    I'm experiencing a weird error on one of my worlds. When I try to do a restore in this world, it gives me the following error ( This only occurs in one world. Other worlds work fine. Any ideas as to what it could be?
