I downloaded a world from www.planetminecraft.net and the whole seed is just one island and everything is else is just water. I want to move the whole island to a different world where there are more islands. I used MCEdit and selected the island only and pruned it so that all I see is a square shaped world with an island in it. How do I save this selected area as a schematic file? I have tried using the WorldEdit commands while in my world. First I traveled to the edge of the square shaped world and type //wand. It gave me the wooden axe and I left click on one block to set the first position. Then I flew to the opposite edge of where I was and marked my second position. Then I type //expand vert so that all of it is selected from sky to bedrock. I type //copy and my world starts to lag like crazy. Then it freezes after a few minutes. I wait for the Minecraft to respond and then it says something about "javalangoutofmemoryerror" and then something about java heap space. I went to www.youtube.com to see how to fix the problem and I did. I went on Control Panel-->Programs-->Java--.Java tab-->View.. and change what it said under Runtime Parameters to "-Xmx1024M -Xms2048M -jar" like it said in a video I watched. I tried it again and still, it freezes after typing //copy and says that I've ran out of memory or something. So now I chose to find a way to use an external flash drive to store RAM. I renamed my "3.15GB out of 16GB Memory Free" flashdrive to RAM DRIVE and then I clicked Use this device under the ReadyBoost tab and set it to 4000MB reserved space. It made my flashdrive lessen the amount of space from 3.15GB to 0.99GB. I did it again and it still freezes and crashes after doing //copy.
So that's my story. My main question is, is there an option in MCEdit to select an area and export it as a schematic file? I believe MCEdit used to have this option in older versions of MCEdit and I have downloaded them and still no choices to export as a schematic file. I've also selected the area I want and extracted it and it save as a bunch of chunks which is not what I wanted. Are there other programs like MCEdit that actually allows you to select an area within the program and save it as a schematic within the program?
Sorry if I typed way too much information for you to handle. I just wanted to say what I've tried to do. Please help, thanks!
That's what I can not do. There is no export button. Which version of MCEdit do I need so that the "Export" button is still within the game? And if the Export button is still in the game, where and how do I do it in MCEdit v0.1.6? Do I need a different MCEdit? If so, what version?
Sorry, but I still don't see the Export button. I select an area and all the options I see on the left are Deselect, Create, Delete, Prune, Relight, Extract(I've tried this, but it exports is as a bunch of chunks that I don't know what to do with), Repop, and Don't Repop. I don't see any other options.
