How to Install WorldEdit
WorldEdit is a Bukkit plugin/mod originally built for multiplayer server but following a ton of requests from fans, it extended support for single player. So if you’re itching to get your hands dirty, then here’s how to install WorldEdit.
To run WorldEdit, you’ll need either Bukkit, Forge, Fabric or any other Minecraft platform that supports plugins or mods. So for this article, we are going to utilize Fabric since we’re using the 1.15.1 version of Minecraft.
So to get this one going, head over to fabric official website and click on the Vanilla tab. From there, select the latest version of the software (as of writing this article, it’s 0.5.2.39) and click Download installer (Universal/JAR).
Next up, head over to Curseforge and click on files. From there, download Fabric API build depending on your Minecraft version (here we’ll choose 1.15.1).
Once done, go to EngineHub, click on View last successful build and download worldedit-fabric.
Finally, it’s tim to install fabric ModMenu. So jump into this URL and download the latest version of modmenu build.
With the downloads done, simply press the “Windows key” and “R” to bring up the Run box. Now type in %appdata% and click ok.
Then select .minecraft followed by versions on the window explorer that appears.
Next up, double-click on the fabric-installer you downloaded on step one and ensure its install location is pointing to your Minecraft versions folder then hit Install.
Now head back to .minecraft folder and this time, jump into mods (create one if there isn’t any). In there, copy all the 3 files you downloaded earlier (i.e modmenu, fabric api, worldedit) and paste them inside the mods folder.
Once done, fire up Minecraft launcher and select fabric-loader prior to clicking play.
Once the game starts, click on Mods from the main menu and select WorldEdit followed by done.
Now select Singleplayer followed by Create New World and More World Options. Allow Cheats: ON and click Done.
That’s it. You can now click on Create New World to begin your gameplay.
