I haven't played Minecraft for a couple years and am just returning. I plan to use WorldEdit a great deal. I remember that I used to be able to fill 3D rectangular regions by typing X, Y, and Z coordinates. I think it was something like //Fill [~5, ~6, ~7] <block ID> made a region 5x6x7, relative to my current position filled with the specified block. (The ~ meant relative position, as opposed to absolute.) But, reading the commands I see no such thing. It seems I have to use the wand and move around to the two corners to specify a region. Did the ability to type in coordinates go away? Is it documented somewhere else? Am I imagining that ability?
If the ability still exists, can someone please provide the correct syntax (I'm guessing from memory above)?
Thank you for replying. So, it sounds like the command still supports that. It just doesn't look like that form is documented anywhere. Also, my memory was that you could specify two points, of course, but there was a way to have it just assume the block right in front of you was the one point. In any case, I'll try the format you suggest and see what happens.
I don't think this is right. I tried it in multiple ways and it keeps giving me errors about bad parameters. It seems to think I'm specifying a radius.
Does anyone know how to create, for example, a slab of sandstone 2x100x100, with a single WorldEdit command, and without having to fly to 100,100 just to wave the wand? I did it hundreds of times a few years ago, but don't recall the exact syntax, and the in-game help is less than useful.
