So, in my minecraft ocean, I have a lot of uneven little raises and empty valleys due to poor use of world edit and lot's of water deletion. Is there a fairly easy way I could just even out the ocean? It's very ugly and I want it fixed. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Here are some pictures:

Could you use something like MC edit to fill/empty everything above/below a certain line? – Ben Brocka May 21 '12 at 0:22
The problem with that is it's still uneven and what not. – Jack Davis May 21 '12 at 0:34

There are two steps here:

  1. Having decided on the level you want your sea to be at, first make a selection of everything below that level. Be careful though - too deep and you'll fill caves! Just for aesthetics, selecting just the surface blocks will be fine. Once you've made your selection, replace air blocks with water. You may need several selections to get the fidelity required.

  2. Select everything above your sea level and replace water blocks with air. This is less dangerous than the previous command, so you can be generous with your selection.

When you reload your world, your ocean should be back to being smooth and flat!
