WorldEdit (WE) is an easy-to-use in-game world editor for Minecraft that lets you: change thousands of blocks in an area at once by selecting regions, use over 100 functions to modify the world or remove problems, remove large chunks of land as you wish, sculpt the world and build mountains with brushes, and fix annoyances such as broken water, missing snow, raging fires, and more! Limited WorldEdit functionality is available to all of our members in the PlotWorld on the BadWolfMC Beta Server!

Much of this tutorial is lifted straight from the WorldEdit Wiki, which might be easier to follow in terms of layout, but please note that we have not enabled all WE features. This page is a basic guide to getting started and includes only the tools or wiki links to features that you have access to.

WorldEdit Rules

WorldEdit is a powerful editing tool that we are providing access to in good faith, and as they say, with great power comes great responsibility. ANY abuse, misuse, or attempts to bypass limitations and rules can do serious damage and will result in immediate removal of privileges without warning or a permanent server ban. Ignorance is not an acceptable excuse.

  • All edits are limited to 100,000 blocks per operation, and all users are limited to one operation at a time. Operations exceeding this limit will be canceled automatically. This is still considered a fairly large number in WorldEdit terms, but it also adds up faster than you'd expect. In general this number is not an issue for the server, but you'll also want to be aware of both the performance of the server at the time of the operation and the performance of your own client, internet, etc. WorldEdit changes a lot of blocks very quickly, which your client then has to render just as quickly, so if you experience lag in general you'll probably want to limit yourself to hundreds of blocks rather than thousands. When you make a selection the plugin will tell you how many blocks are included in that selection to give you an idea.
  • All operations are limited to plots that you have legitimately claimed (see the PlotWorld tutorial for more information on claiming a plot). Generally any operations that go outside of your plot will cut off (e.g. a generated cylinder that overlaps the road will still generate but any blocks over the road will be missing).
  • The following blocks have been blacklisted and are unavailable for use with WE (note that many of these are still available to you from your creative inventory and can be placed normally):

List of blacklisted blocks:

    • Armor Stands
    • Banners
    • Barriers
    • Beacon
    • Bedrock
    • Beds
    • Brewing Stands
    • Buttons
    • Cactus
    • Cake
    • Carpet
    • Chorus Plants/Flowers
    • Coal Ore

    • Emerald Ore
    • End Gateway
    • End Portal
    • End Portal Frame
    • Ender Chest
    • Fire
    • Flowers
    • Hoppers
    • Item Frames
    • Lapis Ore
    • Lava
    • Leaves
    • Lever
    • Mushrooms
    • Nether Portal
    • Nether Quartz Ore
    • Piston Heads
    • Pistons
    • Powered Rails
    • Redstone Ore/Glowing Ore
    • Redstone Torch
    • Redstone Wire
    • Saplings
    • Shrubs/Grass/Ferns

    • String
    • Structure Blocks
    • Structure Void
    • Sugar Cane
    • TNT
    • Torches
    • Wheat/Carrots/Potatoes
  • Do not create large amounts of falling blocks (e.g. sand, gravel, concrete powder, etc.). While this can be useful for making certain shapes and is allowed in small quantities, excessive falling blocks create entity lag and our plugins will attempt to intervene. Abuse of this will result in loss of privileges for you and these blocks being blacklisted for everyone.
  • Be as accurate as possible and keep your use of WorldEdit to a minimum, especially with large selections -- excessive WE use can lead to data corruption and lag.
