    The latest download from SpigotMC supports 1.16.5, 1.17, 1.17.1, 1.18, 1.18.1 and 1.18.2
    If you are looking for unsupported versions of FAWE prior to 1.16.5, see here:
    These are here purely for informational reasons. No support is given to these whatsoever.

    We're following Mojang's policy and require modern Java versions for our plugins too. Currently, all our plugins require Java 17.

    > What is FAWE and why should I use it?
    FAWE is designed for efficient world editing.
    • Simple to setup and use
    • Extremely configurable
    • Uses minimal CPU/Memory
    • Safe for many players to use
    • Insanely fast, when using the slowest mode
    If you use other plugins which depend on WorldEdit, simply having FAWE installed will boost their performance.

    > World Editing Performance
    There several placement modes, each supporting higher throughput than the previous. All editing is processed async with certain tasks being broken up on the main thread. The default mode is chunk placement.
    • Blocks (Bukkit-API) - Only used if chunk placement isn't supported. Still faster than any other plugin on spigot.
    • Chunks (NMS) - Places entire chunk sections
    • World (CFI) - Used to generate new worlds / regions

    > Protection plugins

    The following plugins are supported with Bukkit

    > Logging and Rollback
    By default you can use `//inspect` and `//history rollback` to search and restore changes. To reduce disk usage, increase the compression level and buffer size. To bypass logging use `//fast`.

    > Developer API
    • FAWE maintains API compatibility with WorldEdit so you can use the normal WorldEdit API async.
    • FAWE also has some async wrappers for the Bukkit API.
    • The wiki has examples for various things like reading NBT, modifying world files, pasting schematics, splitting up tasks, lighting etc.

    Thanks for fixing the bugs on version 1.18.2, now we can deservedly rate it 5/5. I hope the update to 1.19 will be fast =)

    Version: 2.1.2
    Legendary plugin. Been using it for years. Every crafter should be fluent in worldedit commands.
  3. Exorsin
    Version: 2.1.2

    Way nicer than using normal WE. Lots of neat config tweaks as well. I'm very glad I switched.

    Thank you for keeping this amazing plugin up to date! Works perfectly and I recommend it to anyone wanting a faster, more efficient version of worldedit.

    Version: 2.1.1
    I have always used the normal WorldEdit. I bought a spawn that is 67mil blocks+ and worledit crashed my server 3 times trying to load it and I tried to load it on my PC that has an i9 9900k OC to 5 GHz and it wouldn't load. I tried this plugin it loaded all the blocks like it was nothing only took like 30 sec.

    Thanks for keeping this updated! Works great.

    100 char limit: waaaaaaa it doesn't work on 1.8 take my 1 star review because it's totally your fault that I'm using a server version almost a decade old.

    BuenĂ­simo, elimina el lag por completo que se ocasiona al mover una estructura o lo que sea que hagas.

    Sorry, but I was compelled to leave a review after seeing the silly, entitled ones left below by 1.8 users. The world doesn't revolve around your young, toxic and niche community. The plugin itself is fine. I haven't encountered any issues with it, even though people insist that it is unstable and dangerous. In any case, I'm willing to take a little risk to break free of the sluggishness of regular WorldEdit.
