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!
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.
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.
//wandin game to access the WorldEdit Selection tool and select your build/area you wish to save.
//copyto copy the selection to the clipboard.
//schem save NAME. This will save a .schem file into your
/WorldEdit/schematicsfolder 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
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.
/WorldEdit/schematicsfolder and restart the server.
//schem load FILENAME. The name will be without the .schem appended to it.
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
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.
