I am trying to remove a large quantity of blocks. Is there an easier way to do this than deleting all of your command blocks while trying to get /fill to work? I really don't want to use structure blocks. Can anybody help?

  • Could you elaborate on what you mean by getting /fill to work at the same time?

First I'll run you through how to use the fill command:

Lets replace this 4x4 square with air enter image description here First find the coordinates of the bottom corner of the square: The coordinates are in the highlighted box enter image description here Write this down and then lets find the top corner of the other side of the squareenter image description here enter image description here

When your done writing both coordinates down place them in a commandblock, it should look like this:

/fill 39.529 26 58.418 36.335 27 61.391

these are the two sets of coordinates (They can be rounded) /fill (39.529 26 58.418) (36.335 27 61.391)

After this you have to place the name of the block you want to replace the square with, after the coordinates

/fill 39.5 26 58.5 36.3 27 61.3 minecraft:air

And poof it's gone enter image description here

As for alternative ways this is one of the best, unless you want to download 3rd party tools like WorldEdit.
