Sometimes, you want to do some editing to a world on a massive scale, but you don’t want to spend the hours it would normally take to break, move and place blocks at the usual rate of one at a time. The MCEdit tool is exactly what you’re looking for if this sounds like a problem you’ve had in the past. Essentially, this is a Minecraft world editor that allows you to do practically anything to a world with a few clicks and command prompts. It has been upgraded many times since its initial release, from a program used mostly to move buildings from older versions into newer versions to something else.
By something else, I mean there are new brush tools for laying down whole layers of blocks in unique shapes, as well as Minecraft server integration so you can create custom worlds to your specifications using the inherent Minecraft seed algorithms. The MCEdit World Editor tool is a powerful one and very useful in the hands of a knowledgeable person. But because it is so powerful, it can also cause a lot of irreparable damage to a world and very quickly at that. Before you go messing with this tool, it is recommended you back up your world in a safe place for easy restoration later.
