Magic Circles 2: Rotate & Polar Array

Hello all, I am excited to release to you my latest advancement in Minecraft circle technology, Magic Circles 2! This version now allows full 3D object rotating, and circular arraying to any angle, or angle increment you want. Another great new addition to this version is that it comes with both a worldedit craftscript, and MCedit filter, allowing use in singleplayer, multiplayer and MCedit!

Tutorial Video

Worldedit Craftscript

Install Guide


1) Install the SinglePlayerCommands mod, which also comes with WorldEdit.
2) Open your main "%appdata%/.minecraft" folder up. (The one with bin and saves folder)
3) From the .minecraft folder navigate to the mods folder then to the spc folder.
4) Copy the downloaded, unzipped folder "craftscripts" into it, merging with existing folder if necessary.
5) Find the worldedit.properties file in the same folder and open with any text editor.
6) Go to the line that reads "scripting-timeout=" and change the value to 30000.
7) Save the file and close all folders, open Minecraft and test it out with the command "/cs rotate".

*You must own/have access to server files to install scripts.

1) These scripts all require the worldedit plugin, make sure to have it installed before attempting.
2) Once installed you just need to copy all the script files to your "plugin/worldedit/craftscripts/" directory.
3) Make sure to increase script timeout value in the "plugins/worldedit/config.yml" file to at least 30000.

How to Use
There are three things you must do to run this script correctly. The first is setting an active 3D selection with worldedit, to the blocks you want rotated. Once you have that, you need to bind the rotate brush to a non-useable item, with the commands listed below. Once the brush is bound all you need to do is click where the center should be, and it will copy, and rotate everything around that point.

Command Usage

/cs rotate increment, resolution, singleStep, brushMode

increment - Step between rotations. (positive number = total items in the circle, negative = exact angle)
resolution - The accuracy of filling in blocks, slowy increment this if you encounter gaps in blocks.
singleStep - Specifies if you want a full circular rotation, or a single one (0=single, 1=full)
brushMode* - Specifies if the command should bind to a brush = 1, or run now, using player origin = 0.

*SPC and worldedit brushes are somewhat unstable at the moment, setting this to 0 may prove to be more crash resistant if using this in singleplayer.

-Only the increment argument is required, all others are optional.
-Exclude commas when entering in arguments.


Problem: Error Message "Failed to find an installed script engine." when using script.
Fix: Go here, download the Rhino Zip file. Unzip it and copy the included js.jar to your "/.minecraft/bin" folder.

Problem: Error Message "Script does not exist ..." when using script.
Fix: Worldedit can't find the script in the craftscripts folder, make sure you copied it to the right location.

Problem: Error Message "Make a region selection first." when using script.
Fix: Just like it says, you need to have an active worldedit selection, using the //wand or //pos commands.

If there are other problems you come across, please let me know.

MCedit Filter

Install Guide

1) The first you need to do is open the directory in which mcedit was installed.
2) From there, navigate to the appdata folder, then to the folder of your current mcedit version.
3) In that directory there should be a filters folder with all the normal default *.py filters.
4) All you need to do now is copy the downloaded filter file into that directory.
5) The next time you open the filters menu up in MCedit, it will be on the list.

How to Use
There are a few things you must do to run this filter correctly. The first is setting an active selection in MCedit, to the blocks you want rotated. Once you have that, you need to open the filters menu up ,and locate the "3D Rotate & Polar Array" option on the dropdown list. Once you have selected that, the filter interface options will show up and let you rotate your selection by hitting the filter button.

i'm getting an error about can't import a package.
I'm running the old mod-loader that auto-unzips world edit each time on start up. Is your program looking for a class from there that's not in the correct spot (because it's zipped)? if so, what to do -- unzip world edit and... where does it go?

Hmm, that is very odd, what is the exact error message you get, and when do you get it exactly? Also, are you able to use normal worldedit just fine. or how about other scripts, do they work ok?

How do you get this to work for 1.6.2, what i've heard is you just make a folder named bin and just put stuff in there, but it isnt working, i'll try others things to what works for now.

THIS SAVED ME! I am doing a HUGE city with huge complex arches (250x250) With intricate detail. Without this, I would have to rebuild the arch by hand. Thank you so very much! If you want a donation... I would be willing to give a bit because this is so amazing.
