What Is WorldEdit?
WorldEdit is an indispensable plugin for our Minecraft servers, it adds functions that greatly improve the time we would probably spend in building on a big scale in our servers. The preferred tool for those dedicated to building.
Between his great functions is the ability to cut, copy and paste map’s sections in other places; insert spheres and geometric figures in a matter of seconds, and following math forms such as vectors
Even more, combined with plugins such as WorldGuard you can also design certain zones with special rules such as disabling fire spread, mob spawning, or something pretty common: disabling PVP (mostly used on spawns)
- Make sure to have spigot/paper already installed, if not then please follow one of these tutorials
- Head to WorldEdit’s official page
- In the files tab, download the plugin version corresponding to the version of your server
- Go to the game panel of your server and stop it
- Click on the Configuration tab and go to SFTP Settings
- Using software such as Filezilla, access your server’s files with the credentials found there
- When in your server’s files, go to the plugin folder.
- If it doesn’t exist, make it
- Paste the file you’ve downloaded
- Go to your server’s console and start it, if everything went well it should recognize it
WorldEdit Basic Commands
WorldEdit WILL ONLY WORK for those with admin access (or perms designated by some permission’s manager plugin like LuckyPerms)
Start using WorldEdit
The tool to use WorldEdit is a wooden ax, you can get it via normal game methods or by putting the command //wand in the console. As a side note, most of the WorldEdit commands start with // instead of the normal /
The first thing to know is that the ax will be used to select the positions where to apply transformations, with the left click you set position 1, and with the right click position 2, then you can apply some of the world edit commands such as the following ones:
The //set command lets you change the area of your selection for the block of your choice (here you can find a list with minecraft’s block ids, you can also check it in-game, press f3+h at the same time and when you hover your cursor over a block you’ll see the corresponding id, and also some other stuff which I honestly think is pretty cool!
//set stone || Which turns the area into stone
//set lava || Lava, burns
//set wool || Turns selected area into wool, pretty much self-explained, to change the color you’ll use it like this wool:color
Did you make a building so good that you want to make a lot of copies from it? Use the command //copy for that. As explained before, just select a zone and put //copy in the chat
Almost the same as //copy, just that this one removes the original place when moved to another place
It goes by the hand with the //copy command, once something is copied, just find a good spot and put //paste in the chat. Though honestly speaking you might need a few tries
One of the most useful commands for WorldEdit, something didn’t end up as you wanted? Easy, just use //undo to undo the last thing you made and give it another try!
A more extensive guide about WorldEdit can be found here. You can also check the available commands in your server by typing //help in the console. Facing any issue? Feel free to contact us!
