WorldEdit is basically a map editor for your game, in your game.
You can use it "a little" to copy and paste one building from one map to another or you can use to sculpt whole biomes and build cities. It's great for both your single player/local server OR your dedicated Minecraft server. Use it to build things or fix things. Check out the video below!
⚠️ Note: WorldEdit can't be used on Realms, Windows 10, Bedrock, or Pocket Edition versions. These versions of Minecraft have limited or no mod support. 😞 However, you can use it on the Java edition if you first install Minecraft Forge!
- Quickly create, replace or delete thousands of blocks in seconds
- No longer waste time doing mundane activities like fix badly flowing water!
- Quickly create basic shapes like spheres, cylinders, and so on
- Copy areas, paste them, load them, and save them as .schematics
- Do cool things like input mathematical expressions to generate terrain
- Use "brush tools" to carve out mountains, ravines, and so on
- Use your compass to quickly teleport to areas by left clicking or using /jumpto
- Choose an area and have it instantly restored from backups
- One of Minecraft's oldest surviving projects (since Minecraft Alpha)!
- WorldEdit works on either single player or on a server. While you may not often need a map editor, WorldEdit won't extend your load times at all and has no impact on your game until you use it! It causes no mod conflicts and it will be there when you need it.
⚠️ This page is for the Forge and Fabric mods! If you use Bukkit/Spigot/Paper, get the WorldEdit plugin.
And if you need to distribute modpacks, check out sk89q's modpack launcher platform. You can also use it to make and test modpacks easily.
