Latest file for v1.17.9: 1-click install

Ever wanted to make a copy of your constructions, or mabey appreciate that neat statue offline? (YES Chisels are cloned)

This mod; does just that - it makes WorldEdit compatible exports; from any game mode, Singleplayer OR Multiplayer.

Its a basic GUI-less, client-side command; invoked like so (from a chat line)


This expects some command parameters; like

mark start
mark end
mark start x+1
mark end y-1
mark start z+20
mark clear
save {NAME}

Exporting a area needs the START & END positions set - at least 1 apart. START is set to where the player's feet (standing) should be, as is the END.(Yes, that is completely arbitrary...but makes my life easier!)

If you don't like how your selected region looks ; you can adjust the start OR end postion X / Y / Z  by adding or subtracting an offset, always a integer number ( Y+3 ), with no spaces.

Or if you mess up the selection - just use 'mark clear'.

Also there is a special purpose item & block list/dumping command...(mostly for modder / developer use)

dump blocks/items

{domain} - code optional; but used to filter for certain mods - or just stock-vs only content...

Great Mod and I would love to use it, but I am having a hard time saving a build, what are the limits to Carbon Copies ( 27x33x27 is the dimensions I'm copying).... Etc, what blocks (Chiseled is listed, ie forge, clay oven) and or object can or cannot be copied? I have chests, trunks, braziers, torches, lanterns, a water source, fire pits etc. Not sure if these are affecting why it crashes. Nowhere in the details explains this or what modded items are able to be copied? Thanks for your time, I am also going to mess around with it more and delete things till it saves correctly. Will update with my findings.


Edit. Size did not affect its copy. I was able to export and import from world edit just fine. I couldn't find out what it was that crashed when I tried to save but I removed all lanterns, oil lamps, brazier, flower pots even firepits and pots... everything that wasn't a chest and it worked fine so not sure which of those it affected.

Edit 2. Did some more testing and I found that carbon copy does NOT like armor stands, I was able to copy firepits, objects placed on the ground, paintings etc with no problems but as soon as i tried to copy only an armor stand it finally crashed. Overall I am not fussed about this. Thanks again.

Loving this mod right now. I am so glad I can bring my old world from the start into a new world. Thank you very much.

Not a dead link; just the one for GIT use directly - changed to the HTTP page version

💬 Buggi, May 10th 2022 at 10:22 PM

Your source link is dead. :( Was hoping to see how the mod works.

Does this need an update to 1.16?

Yes, yes it does. Hard crash on .export mark start


💬 hydrazombie, Dec 24th 2021 at 5:03 PM

could you make a way to destroy blocks or add blocks  to a certain area the ingame world edit and the magic wand is not very user friendly

In theory, could someone copy their entire building, and make it a mod for others to load into their own games? (like from the aura fury for example).

Having community made buildings would be next level.
