Overview

Creating the perfect build in Minecraft can be a long process but a totally worthwhile one. Whether you are making a small house or a massive kingdom you will most likely want to save it to add to another world or share with others. This is where WorldEdit schematics will come into play. With schematics, you can save small or large areas of a world without needing to save the entire world folder. This is perfect for having a separate build world on your server and still being able to save and load your builds within the other worlds on your server.

You may have also found someone else builds online with a schematic download. This schematic file can be used within WorldEdit to be loaded into your own world. In this guide, we will go over how to save and load schematics with WorldEdit on your Apex Minecraft server!

How to use WorldEdit Schematics

Install WorldEdit

It is important to note that in order to make use of WorldEdit and its schematics feature you will need to have a server running either Spigot/Paper or Forge. This will allow you to then run either the plugin or mod version of the software.

Spigot/Paper:

  1. Download the WorldEdit plugin appropriate for your server version here.
  2. Worldedit
  3. Head to your multicraft panel and select FTP File Access and login.
  4. Once logged in click plugins.
  5. Plugins
  6. On the left hand side click upload and drag the WorldEdit jar file into the uploader.
  7. Once you see the jar file reach 100% you can then restart the server to let it load!

 
Forge:

  1. Download the WorldEdit mod for your appropriate server version here.
  2. Mods
  3. Head to your multicraft panel and select FTP File Access and login.
  4. Once logged in select mods.
  5. Installing mods
  6. On the left hand side click upload and drag the WorldEdit jar file into the uploader.
  7. Once you see the jar file reach 100% you can then restart the server to let it load!

 

Save a Schematic

Saving your builds is very simple with schematics from WorldEdit if you already know the basic commands and usage of WorldEdit. If you would like to learn more about WorldEdit as a whole you can check out our guide here. You will just need to follow these few simple steps.

Saving Schematic
  1. Type //wand in game to access the WorldEdit Selection tool and select your build/area you wish to save.
  2. Once selected you will need to run the command //copy to copy the selection to the clipboard.
  3. Now you can run //schem save NAME. This will save a .schem file into your /WorldEdit/schematics folder in the server.

The file will be saved in your schematics folder, however the folder itself may be in a different place depending on what kind of server you have. If you are running Spigot or Paper you can find the folder and .schem save files in /plugins/WorldEdit/schematics. If you are running Forge you can find the folder and .schem save files in /config/WorldEdit/schematics.

Load a Schematic

Loading a schematic is just as simple as saving one. If you have a .schem file or have downloaded one from the internet you will want to place that in your schematics folder. If there is no schematics folder inside of the WorldEdit folder on your server you will need to create one.

Loading Schematic
  1. Place the .schem file into the /WorldEdit/schematics folder and restart the server.
  2. In-game use the command //schem load FILENAME. The name will be without the .schem appended to it.
  3. Stand in the location you would like to paste the schematic and run //paste.
  4. Depending on how the schematic was originally copied you may need to try to place it a few times to get it exactly correct. To undo a placement simply issue the command //undo.

 

Common Issues

Missing Schematics Folder

You may find that there is no schematics folder inside of the WorldEdit folder on your server. This is a common occurrence with a fresh install of WorldEdit. When inside of your WorldEdit folder select New Folder in the top left of the panel. Give it the name schematics and hit submit. This newly created folder will be where you can upload or find your .schem files!

Schematic Pasted in Wrong Location

More often than not when you first paste in a schematic it will not be in the correct place. The pasted location will be determined by where the player is standing in relation to the build when they copy it. If you are pasting in a schematic that you have saved it will paste in the same location relevant to your player when you run the //copy command.

To remove an incorrectly placed paste simply run //undo. Sometimes you may not know how it was copied prior so this is useful to allow you to make precise edits of where the schematic gets placed.
