I wanted to let you know that a lot of links are broken.
Yeah I know. The VPS on which the site was hosted has crashed, taking everything with it including the wiki, and I haven't gotten round to restoring everything yet. I should put up a page explaining that though...
I am trying to open an existing world and add the new oceans to see what they look like.
I'm not sure that is possible. WorldPainter does not generate any of the structures that Minecraft would generate, and even if it did it has no idea about upcoming features from unreleased versions of Minecraft. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you were trying to do?
How do I edit a current world? I have tried to "import" new world from minecraft map, but it gives me an error.
That should have worked. How was this map generated? Were you using mods? Is it from a development version of Minecraft?
I try to download worldpainter but it says that it cannot find JVM or something along those lines. I have Java and Minecraft installed. Pls help me
Usually that means you don't have the right word size (32 or 64 bits) Java installed. Make sure to follow the links and instructions next to the WorldPainter download link you used to get the right version of Java.
I'm trying to make a world using some mods.
I created a map with some biomes of "Biomes O Plenty" mod but I would like to know how to insert the vegetation of that mod, currently I can only have the flora of the vanilla version.
Using the "Dynamic Trees - Biomes O Plenty Compat" mod and using in Worldpainter the Populate tool on BOP biomes I got the right trees (palms in tropical island, jacarandas in lavender fields, etc.) but with the vanilla underwood.
I hope someone can help me
This is a very old page and the frequently asked questions page doesn't exist anymore, or I can't reach it. When I try to run the setup wizard (on java8 update 161 64-bit) it gives me an error window: "The install4j wizard could not find a Java Runtime Environment on your system. Please locate a suitable 64-bit JRE." There is a button labeled "locate" that opens the file explorer and asks me to find the file "java.exe". When I search for it the closest thing I can find is an application called "java". When I open it shows another error window that says: "The JVM found at C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_161\bin\java.exe is damaged. Please reinstall or define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to an installed 64-bit JDK or JRE.

You don't have 64-bit Java installed. Tip: if something is installed in "Program Files (x86)", it is 32-bit.
That's more of a Windows question than a WorldPainter question. I assume you're not doing this while WorldPainter is running (although I don't think that would cause this error)? There must be some other rights problem. You've taken ownership, but does the owner actually have write rights? What exactly do you mean by being an administrator? Perhaps you need to still run the editor as administrator?
Is it possible to create my world using WorldPainter and export it to a playable Minecraft world?
Yes, that is more or less the point of WorldPainter. However you mention that you are a school teacher, which makes me think you may be using the Educational edition. If so then unfortunately WorldPainter doesn't support that; it can (for now) only create maps for the Java edition of WorldPainter.
On that note, would you know if it's possible at all to create maps for Education Edition?? Other tools etc...
I have heard of such tools, which can convert Java edition maps into Pocket edition maps (which I believe the Education edition uses), which would also be able to concert WorldPainter-generated maps. I don't know anything about these tools though, such as where to find them and how well they work.
So forgive me if I am doing something horribly stupid, but I am getting a weird problem when I am working with a large map.
The map size I am attempting to create is 20480x17220 blocks, so it's decently large. I had created the heightmap in World Machine, and I set out to begin coloring and populating the terrain in World Painter. It imports fine, everything works as it should except it wont let me view the very bottom of the map.
This is not the end of it either. When I zoom in, not only does the problem continue, but the further I zoom in, the less map becomes visible. I also am unable to scroll to the eastern side of the map, with the problem also worsening as I zoom in.
Now, the weird part is that this trend of the problem worsening as I zoom in doesn't continue forever, as when I zoom in to an extreme amount, the problem disappears, allowing me to scroll over the entire map. If I attempt to scroll out over these hidden areas, it lets me, and it even allows me to then scroll over the entire map as if the problem didn't exist, until I zoom in again, causing the problem to return.
I tried updating the program (I was on an outdated version) to no avail. I tried running it in compatibility mode for both Windows 7 and 8, both with the same result. I tried running it with both DirectX and OpenGL. I even tried just leaving it for an hour, hoping it would magically fix itself (while I ate dinner). Surprisingly the last attempt didn't work, and the problem persists.
