Hello everyone! I recently heard that the Angel Block society was back! So I decided I would do a terraforming project. I have used Worldedit many times before but I have never really attempted a large scale project with it. Before I do that I would like to teach my fellow players how to use it themselves.
1. Getting Worldedit
There are two versions of Worldedit, the multiplayer plugin and the one in the single player commands mod.
You must have permissions on a server to use it, or you can get it for your server here: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/worldedit/ There is also the single player version, here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/94310-125-single-player-commands-v322-official-download/
2. Basic commands
Make sure you are holding a tool when using these commands.
First thing you need to know is the brush command
after that you can do //br sphere , //br cylinder and //br smooth
//br sphere grass 3
Instead of grass you can pick any block you want. the "3" is the size, the max size is 5.
this command allows you to "transmute" as I call it from a long distance away and not create a sphere instead of what you want.
This combined with the //material command allows you to make all of the blocks you chose in //mask to be turned into //material
//smooth is a command that smooths out the terrain you right clicked, so if you had a large spike sticking out of the ground, you could turn that spike into more of a hill.
3. How to use the commands in terraforming.
Ok so let's say we wanted to make an island. First select a large area of water to remove, do //wand, left click position one and then right click position two. Do //replace water air, make sure the area you selected was the area with the water in it, the selection forms a cube. Next start using the brush command to make a hill. I would recommend //br sphere stone 3. Make sure this hill goes above water.next smooth out the hill, use //br smooth 3, and just right click at the bottom of the hill, it will smooth it out and make it look more realistic. Next you need to make this island look normal. So use //material sand, and //mask stone, and make the whole island sand, do //material grass mask sand and make the top grass, use //material dirt, and //mask sand, and add patches of dirt into the sand, also add some clay if you like. You can use //size 3, to increase the size of the brush. Now you should be able to use //replace air water to make the sea come back and you should have a new island!
Thanks for reading! If this helped, let me know, if I made any mistakes or you thought It wasn't helpful let me know, I would like some feedback please! Remember to keep crafting!
