How do I install this?


Extra tools and commands to extend WorldEdit for Minetest

If you can dream of it, it probably belongs here!

WorldEditAdditions adds commands for everything from generating instant forests to advanced geometry to smoothing terrain, and that's barely starting to scratch the surface!

Important News: The master branch has been renamed to main, to follow the new standard across the Git ecosystem. If you've installed WorldEditAdditions through git, you will need to re-clone the repository.

I get an error saying that worldedit isn't installed

WorldEditAdditions requires that the worldedit mod is installed as a dependency. Install it and then try launching Minetest (or the minetest-server) again.

I get an error saying that worldedit.register_command() is not a function

This is probably because your version of worldedit is too old. Try updating it. Specifically the worldedit.register_command() function was only added to worldedit in December 2019.

I get a crash on startup saying attempt to call field 'alias_command' (a nil value)

Please update to v1.8+. There was a bug in earlier versions that caused a race condition that sometimes resulted in this crash.

Why don't the moretrees trees work with //forest?

As far as I can tell, the saplings provided by the moretrees mod don't properly interact with bonemeal from the bonemeal mod, which WorldEditAdditions uses to grow trees. WorldEditAdditions has everything in place needed to support them, but until applying bonemeal to moretrees saplings results in a tree rather than waiting for one to grow over time, WorldEditAdditions will always fail to place trees provided by the moretrees mod, unfortunately.

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Must-have if you use WorldEdit a lot!

    The functions provided are mostly extremely useful and have practical applications in cleaning up griefed terrain, making buildings (and even 3D mazes!!), filling caves, adding a type of tree to a pre-existing biome, and much more. Unfortunately, a few crashes/bugs still exist, but this is an impressive mod with (hopefully) a bright future - Kudos to sbrl!

  • I like it and I'll test it

    cool new features, love to test them!
