I know I can use mcedit, but I was wondering if there was a faster way with world edit to copy builds from one world to another.

  • uhmm.. something like //copy and //schem save mcedit <name>? :)

  • Faster than what? Without that detail, the question logically makes no sense and also practically, because nobody knows if they can just tell you the standard way or if it has to be something else. Mar 25 '18 at 20:56
  • @Fabian faster than mcedit as mentioned

  • I read it as "faster than X, but not MCEdit because I don't like MCEdit" or whatever. But then the question becomes: Are you asking for a way to do it faster than you did so far in general (then you shouldn't restrict it to Worldedit) or are you asking for a way to do it faster using Worldedit than it would be using MCEdit (which would be weirdly specific)?

    @Fabian (...) faster way using world edit (...) other than using mcedit is specific enough imho. OP is clearly asking for a world edit solution to c&p stuff from one world to another.

The WorldEdit solution is pretty easy, since WorldEdit supports mcedit schematics and we can make use of these...

  1. //copy (as you would usually do)
  2. //schem save mcedit <name> ( I used "bunny" here, no extension needed)

enter image description here

  1. Locate the Schematic file in your WorldEdit/schematics directory. It should have the name you gave it plus the .schematic extension.
  2. Copy that file over to the same directory of the target world
  3. //schem load mcedit <name> will load it into the clipboard

enter image description here

  1. //paste

enter image description here

Remember: Just like with normal c&p it will remember your position when you copied it and paste it relatively to your position when using //paste. Make sure to stand on the right position when pasting it. Standing on the ground right next to the structure when copying it is usually a good idea.

dly's answer does work but if you want to move builds without using world edit, another way is to use structure blocks

    Generally speaking, it is better to say, "x could work, and here is how you use it" instead of just saying "try x".
