    How does it work?

    It's very simple to use but you might want to keep reading before you get started. Basically World Edit lets you spawn in any block in a square or spherical shape, as well as drain liquids, and change biomes of an area instantly with just one command.

    What's the catch?

    For every block changed there is an in-game cost equal to the block's price at shop. That means if 10 stone costs 100$ in /warp shop then doing an operation where you change 10 blocks to stone will cost $100 in-game currency. World edit only works in op survival and Creative, in op survival it will use your /balance to pay for the blocks if you have enough. In Creative world edits are free.

    Why is there an in-game cost?

    This is to balance the fact that you can literally spawn in any block with these commands (including diamond blocks for example). We hope to maintain the economy on Snap.

    How will I know how much an edit will cost?

    Have no fear, each time you make an edit, a quick menu appears telling you about your edit, including type, cost, and volume. You can cancel or confirm the edit from there. Use -s to skip the menu if you don't need a confirmation page, example: //set stone -s

    How will I be prevented from griefing the whole server?

    Besides being unable to set certain blocks such as TNT or Lava you won't be able to edit any block outside of your claim. You will still be able to edit in your friend's claims if they have trusted you with /trust, but you cannot edit in the wilderness or another player's claim.

    P.S. Our block logger also logs all world edit actions so we can easily rollback any malicious world edits with ease if needed.

    So what Commands are included?

    Unlocking includes the following commands:

    //set (block)

    //sphere (block) (radius)

    //hsphere (block) (radius)

    //drain (radius)

    //up (height)

    //setbiome (height)

    //biomelist (page)


    Vortex Max Only: //replace (block) (new-block)

    Below is extended information on the commands

    and general information on world edit.

    • Replaces blocks within your selected region with the specified block.

    Finding block names:

    For a full list of block names click here.

    It can be tricky to figure out what the exact block name should be, like is it stainedglassblock or stainedglass, or bluestainedglass?
    You can use the /listprices (text) command to list all registered block names with the given text in it. For example /listprices glass would help you see that the correct name would be stainedglass

    Obtaining world edit:

    There are a few ways to unlock world edit.

    • Redeemers: Find redeemers for 2, 4, and 6 hours around the server in /crates or /pvp events, players also often trade them for money on /auctionhouse.
    • Rank Perk: Cosmic Rank and up has access to infinite world edit and also comes with price reductions on blocks and increased edit sizes.
    • Separate Purchase: You can buy 1, 3, or 6 months of world edit on the store as an easy way to unlock the perk for a long time without buying an expensive rank or hunting down redeemers.

    No, currently worldedit on snap only supports one item name per command, this may change in the future.
