Bukkit is just loaded with so many useful add-ons for Minecraft. The WorldEdit plugin is one of these. It’s also one of the oldest plugins for Bukkit today, a fact which probably has some bearing on how popular it has become. With WorldEdit, users can modify their Minecraft world on a whim, moving mountains, emptying lakes and filling in ravines in seconds. Normally doing such things would take hours or even literal days if you were to work by hand in Survival or Hardcore mode on Minecraft. The amount of time which can be saved alone makes this plugin one worth downloading and trying yourself.
Of course, if you don’t feel like making maps or other content to share with the world, then the WorldEdit Bukkit plugin isn’t going to do much good for you. You could still use it to copy buildings, villages and farms from other maps and then paste them into a map of your choice though. This feature lets you rip interesting structures and other things out of other maps and combine them all on a single map if you so choose. The plugin is highly useful and highly versatile since it allows you to create whatever world you see in your head, except for real and in Minecraft.
That’s not to say the WorldEdit plugin is perfect. It has some difficulty pasting content with curves, like domes or other rounded buildings. It also seems to struggle with corners at times and pasting such content can be difficult if not infuriating. In these cases, it’s usually better to just manually fix the messed up parts of the object being pasted rather than to keep trying to paste it over and over while hoping the program works out the details for you. WorldEdit will make creating worlds much faster and easier, but you’ll still need to do much of the finer work yourself.
