World Edit Guide
(with pictures and stuff)
(with pictures and stuff)
I have noticed that a lot of players on creative have differing knowledge of how to use world edit. and personally I think building is a lot easier, gives you more and easier perspective over your build(copying,rotating,flipping etc)
This guide will only take on the simpler parts of World Edit, and then
you can go off on google, explore and learn more by yourself if you want to.(a little less work for me too, hah!)
To conjure the world edit wand, you can do - //wand
And it will appear in your toolbar. The wand can be used for selection, which is demonstrated in this gyazo borrowed from KariKittyx's post " Creative Q&A".
There are a lot of things you can do with a selected area, which I will list below.
Copy - //copy
This copies your selection. When you copy something, it gets copied from where your character is on your plot, this is a little hard to explain so I have included a video for you!
Cut - //cut
Cutting something will remove your selection entirely, but you can still paste what you have cut.
An alternate command do remove your selection without cutting it is //set air
Paste - //paste
The screenshot explains that you can paste your selection minus certain types of things, but the only really useful one on that list is -a, which means you won't
paste air blocks.
This command will paste your copied selection.
Undo - //undo
If you ever need to undo a mistake or you're not happy with your paste you can do this command.
Redo - //redo
If you've done //undo by mistake, you can utilize this command.
These commands are in my opinion the most helpful when it comes to building structure!
Video included, hard to explain with words. commands listed below.
Rotate - //rotate 90
You can use this command to rotate your selection 90 degrees(other numbers won't work)
Flip - //flip left,right,up,down
Flipping is very useful if you want to make a mirror image of something in any direction. It's quite specific where you look while you do this command,
If you want to flip something left or right, you need to look straight forward, if you want to flip something up you need to look up and if you want to flip something
down, you must look down.
These are commands you can use to make something of your selection.
Set - //set block-id/name
This command sets your whole selection as the block you choose.
Here I have done //set obsidian . It's a solid block of obsidian, not hollow on the inside.
Walls - //walls block-id/name
This command lets you create walls in any block.
Faces - //faces block-id/name
This command will create a box basically, with any block you choose. roof/floor/walls.
With the commands listed below, you can easily make circles, basically.
Cylinder - //cyl block size height
With this command, you make a solid cylinder.
The blank spot in this cylinder is where I stood when I did the command, cylinders and spheres work the same way, they will always be made from where you stand, which will be the middle, if that makes sense.
Hcyl - //hcyl block size height
With this command you can make hollow cylinders.
Sphere - //sphere block size
With this command you can make a solid ball!
Hsphere - //hsphere block size
With this command you can make a hollow ball!
Preferably be flying a little above ground when doing these commands, so the spheres don't appear halfway in the ground.
