Hey, I have a large, square island floating in the air currently, and it's 99 width x 99 length. I don't know how I would go about this, so would someone help me out in "shaving" off the corners a bit and turning it into a circle? Remember, I'm not trying to make a circle just a big; just a perfect circle that can be as big as it can be without going outside the boundaries of the original island. Thanks!

Here's a picture of it in MC Edit:

By the way, the large area it's in (took the water out with MC Edit too) is 177 width x 183 length, and I'd also like to make that a circle as well.

It may be a little difficult, but I would suggest opening paint. Draw a square of 99x99 (by holding shift and dragging, if you hadn't already known). Each pixel in the drawing represents a block in game. Then, within the now drawn boundaries, draw a perfect circle (using the shift method again). Now just delete whatever blocks outside of the circle, and there you have it.

I hope I got this across right. Sorry in advance for any confusion.

I would do that, except I use a mac =/ I don't have paint. Unless there's something similar for mac I could use.

Ah, that sucks. Well, here's a picture of circles that when layered, form a sphere. Just choose whatever size looks best.

The picture is small, I know, but there are plenty more similar online that should be larger.

MSPaint. As stated earlier in the post, control+square tool. Then drew a circle inside the square and deleted the excess. Then zoomed in all the way, PrtScn and pasted in paint, then saved and posted here.

I'm at work at the moment, but if noone else does it, I'll knock out one for the other dimensions you mentioned. I completely missed that one yesterday :P

For altering the water I would change the island first then use find/replace air for water in MCEdit around your island, if thats what you meant by making the water a circle?

My link

All you need is the radius. It can also do rectangles and ellipses (ovals).  ;)
