    > 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
    • Regions (Anvil) - Directly modifies the map files, has some latency.
    • World (CFI) - Used to generate new worlds / regions

    > Protection plugins (this list may be out of date)

    The following plugins are supported with Bukkit

    > Logging and Rollback
    By default you can use `//inspect` and `//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.

    This plugin changed and improved so much, keep doing like this, without rush, and with time.

    Amazing and great work, 10/10 totally recommended for building and world editing.

    The new features looks amazing, easy and very useful.

    Also, finally the bukkit page was updated, and with new versions, keep adding (Some) versions there please, they're very useful for some hosts.

    This could just be me but this plugin just refuses to work on 1.8 with so many bugs its just not useable... I have tried many other versions supporting 1.8 and they all just don't work.
    1. I-S
      Author's Response
      1.8 is currently being used by 33% of FAWE users without issue. Newer versions do not support 1.8, and directions to download versions (that work) for 1.8 are very obvious. Please reread download information, and the information on support and how to get it (by using 1.15/16 FAWE).

    Heya, I’m about to add the plugin to my server soon. Just asking, is this a standalone plugin or an addon to WorldEdit?
    1. I-S
      Author's Response
      This is a standalone plugin, however, reviews are NOT for support for any plugin on Spigot. Please read plugins' resource pages for where to obtain support.

    Is is one of the best building plugin! It have all thet i need to build fantastic creation. WorldEdit is nothing when FAWE exist! Most of all i love abelity to convert image to blocks and use is as a brush ^_^ Hope that more update will to come!

    It's better now. Only 2 WE plugins are compatible with WorldGuard, and FAWE is one of them. The other is the regular WE.

    Editing 1M blocks won't crash with FAWE, you can only crash your server with regular WorldEdit.

    FAWE is the best WorldEdit Tools. But you should backup your world first because FAWE still in development. But it's work perfectly for me on 1.16.3. Good plugin >3

    Why noob people rate this resource at low score? now it's work. Well if FAWE break your map why not blame yourself that you don't backup map or use this at Production Server. The develop said at download button (Development Snapshot - NOT STABLE) don't you see it?

    >> Take Responsibility to yourself if you use FAWE on your Production Server...

    Although I love the ideas behind this plugin and the features that it offers, I simply can't recommend it in its current state. I've tried various development builds (there is no such thing as a 'stable' build at the moment), but half the features that it offers over standard WorldEdit or AWE don't work and it even breaks some of the existing ones. Unfortunately this plugin has done more bad than good to my server, even though I'm not running it in a production environment. And I've tried my best to make it work. I suggest coming back when most of the issues are fixed.

      Author's Response
      I'm unsure if you understand the term "alpha-development-builds".
      It means not everything is working as it should, if you find something not working, please check the issue tracker and either comment on an existing issue or open a new one:
      That way we can look into issues.

    I don't think this plugin has a permit to be this fast, and on top of that it's free. Something fishy is going on here.. unless of course, this plugin is just well-coded by people who know what they're doing, and are also very generous? No way.

    Plugin seems to be working fine currently on 1.16.2. I use it for terraforming/world edit and it is finally in a solid state again! This plugin is absolutely essential for map editing. This will be a creator's best friend. I hope the author finds motivation to keep the plugin updated and working. Thanks for your hard work!
