Build Faster V3 [1.8]!

At long last - updated to Minecraft 1.8

Eight new tools to make your creative life easier.
Place multiple blocks at once; place blocks in mid air; replace selected blocks with a different type;  move, copy, or delete structures millions of blocks in size.

All point-and-click with no pesky command line interface!

You'll find the new tools on their own tab in creative.

For the instant tools (wands, sceptre, orb):
  • Put the tool in your hotbar, and put the block you want to place in the slot to the right. (blank slot places air)
  • The number of tools controls how many blocks you place at once (eg a stack of 8 wands will place 8 blocks at once).
  • Hold control and scroll the mousewheel to change the stack size quickly.
  • Right click to place. Left click to undo (up to 5x).
  • Hold control while clicking to allow diagonal lines / diagonal filling.

For the powerup tools (Staff tools):
  • Select a Staff and place it in your hotbar
  • Right click on a structure to select your target; then right click to drag around.  Right click again to stop dragging, left click to cancel selection.  Rotate and Flip possible too (CTRL + mousewheel, CTRL + right click).
  • Hold right button down to move, copy, or delete the selection at the current location.
  • Hold left button down to undo.
  • Use the Boundary Claw if necessary to control which blocks you select.

This installs a zip that when I open it it contains the same zip and it goes on an endless loop. T_T

What's up with the linear tool and slabs? there's no option to specify their position, whether to place them on the top half or the bottom half...

Besides that, the mod was extremely responsive and easy to configure. Thanks!

You mean from different saved games?
No this mod can't do that, but I think that MCEdit can; http://www.mcedit.net/

It would be nice if you could configure the "backup world" feature, I don't like all the worlds left after I am done building my empire.

I thought pretty hard about that and in the end I decided it's just too risky, if the absolute worst happens and a bug in my mod totally corrupts a save, at least there's always at least a couple of recent backups.   No way do I want to be responsible for someone losing all their hard work :)
