Getting Started with WorldEdit

After installing the plugin, we will learn some basic features using WorldEdit. With a selected region, you can use WorldEdit commands to perform various actions, such as filling, pasting, and copying.

Selecting a region

For this tutorial, we will select the region using the wand tool (wooden axe).

Decide the first and second positions you want the WorldEdit plugin to select.

Type //wand and you will receive a wooden axe. Using the wooden axe, you can select the positions by clicking on the positions.

Left-click for the First position.
Right-click for the Second position.
