5 most helpful WorldEdit commands to learn in Minecraft

1.) //copy, //cut and //paste


Perhaps some of the most popular commands, the commands used for copy and pasting do exactly what they say on the tin.

To use these commands to copy and paste builds, players should select a region with their WorldEdit wand and then type the //copy command or the //cut command depending on whether they want to keep the original (copy to keep original and cut to delete original).

After this, players should paste the structure that they copied using the //paste command. This can dramatically speed up the building process when the player needs to create a lot of the same structure.

2.) //move

This command will move everything in the selected area by a specified amount of blocks in the direction that the player is facing.

The syntax for this command is //move <amount of blocks to move>.

3.) //schematic


This command is very useful to players who plan to use the same structures in multiple different Minecraft projects.

To use this command, players should select an area with their worldedit wand followed by typing //schematic save. This will save the selected structure to a new file that can be reloaded at any time with the command //schematic load.

Once the schematic has been loaded, players can use //paste to place the structure.

4.) //smooth and //regen

The command //smooth can be used in a selected region to flatten out a piece of land.

Flattened land in Minecraft is particularly important when building, as it makes it significantly easier for players to build.

Should players accidentally smooth out too much land, the simple command //regen can be used. This will restore land to its earliest seed-generated form.

5.) //replace


Another highly useful and very popular command among Minecraft builders, //replace allows players to change one type of block into another.

To use this command, players should first select the area they want to work on, then type //replace <original block id> <new block id>. This will change the original block to the new block.
