    Join our discord server if you have questions to the new version.

    The latest download from SpigotMC supports 1.15.2, 1.16.5, 1.17 and 1.17.1
    If you are looking for unsupported versions of FAWE prior to 1.15, see here:
    These are here purely for informational reasons. No support is given to these whatsoever.

    A recent snapshot for 1.17, 21w19a, requires Java 16 or greater. As medium step, Fawe will require a minimum Java version of 11 as of now, before jumping to 16. Read more about it here

    > 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.

    • (No setup required) Clipboard web integration (Clipboard)
    • Unlimited //undo, per world history, instant lookups/rollback and cross server clipboards
    • Advanced per player limits (entity, tiles, memory, changes, iterations, regions, inventory)
    • Visualization, targeting modes/masks and scroll actions
    • Use CFI commands to generate worlds
    • Adds lighting commands. (fix, set, remove)
    • Adds lots of powerful new //brushes and //tools.
    • Adds a lot more mask functionality. (new mask syntax, patterns, expressions, source masks)
    • Adds a lot more pattern functionality. (a lot of new pattern syntax and patterns)
    • Adds edit transforms (apply transforms to a source e.g. on //paste)
    • Adds support for new formats (e.g. Structure Blocks)
    • Instant copying of arbitrary size with `//lazycopy`
    • Auto repair partially corrupt schematic files
    • Biome mixing, in-game world painting, dynamic view distance, vanilla cui, off axis rotation, image importing, cave generation, multi-clipboards, interactive messages, schematic visualization, lag prevention, persistent brushes + A LOT MORE

    > 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.
    • If you need help with anything, hop on discord (link above)

    only giving 4 stars because this is still a beta, main question i have, has all the bugs and issues been fixed that have caused server issues? been using base worldedit just to be on the safe side. or is it stable enough i can fully switch over to this?

    Absolute goodie, No Problems (Issues are fixed quickly)

    use FastAysncWorldEdit, or if you do big changes, FastAysncWorldEdit

    Congratulations on 500,000 downloads and I love the work from the team as usual. This plugin is a need for every server, how could you not have it already?

    Extremely useful plugin, solves a lot of performance problems on servers with high player-counts compared to regular WorldEdit

    Plugins alright.
    If you're feeling like you want to be treated like a dog or watch other people get treated like a dog, definitely join the discord though. If that's your kink anyways.

    It's obviously a good plugin and I've used it for years, but it never lets you undo stuff in your world.

    Nobody needs any of the features this plugin has except it's speed, and undo capabilities. If I need to actually get something done reliably, sadly I can't say that I'd ever use this plugin.

    Sad to see so many negative reviews. This plugin is personally really useful to me as a builder, and is worked on frequently by the developers :)

    Absolute trash, causes a lot of problems to the world (issue still isnt fixed long long time, months after reporting XDD)

    use worldedit, or if you do big changes, AWE

      What issues does it cause in the world? There are no issues that cause the world to "have problems" that are currently open... Please don't spread provably false information in the reviews.
