WorldEdit is an easy-to-use in-game world editor for Minecraft.

This release updates WorldEdit to the latest version of Sponge, fixing a few bugs. //regen has also been implemented for 1.12.2 on the Sponge platform.


is there a 1.10.2 version?

how can i put world edit for sponge version 7.2?

Same way you put any plugin on Sponge version 7.2.

Download the compatible version (7.2 can run any plugin from 7.0.0 - 7.2.0 (so WorldEdit 6.1.10 (latest version) is compatible) and pop it in your mods folder and then run the server

hi when i use the brush, i can put blocks in a short range, like 4 or 5 blocks, any help please?

A new version has been released for WorldEdit, it is available for download here.
