Installing
----------
If you are using Windows, consider installing this mod using [MODSTER](https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=6497), a super simple mod installer that will take care of everything for you. If you are using MODSTER, skip directly to step 6 in the instructions below.
There is a nice installation guide over at the [Minetest Wiki](http://wiki.minetest.com/wiki/Installing_mods). Here is a short summary:
1. Download the mod from the [official releases page](https://github.com/Uberi/Minetest-WorldEdit/releases). The download links are labelled "Source Code". If you are using Windows, you will probably want to download the ZIP version.
2. You should have a file named `SOMETHING.zip` or `SOMETHING.tar.gz`.

2. You should have a file named `Minetest-WorldEdit-x.x.zip`.
3. Extract this file using your archiver of choice. If you are using Windows, open the ZIP file and move the folder inside to a safe place outside of the ZIP file.
4. Make sure that you now have a folder with a file named README.md inside it. If you just have another folder inside this folder, use this nested folder instead.

5. Move this folder into the `MINETEST_FOLDER/mods` folder, where `MINETEST_FOLDER` is the folder Minetest is located in.
6. Open Minetest to a world selection screen.
7. Select a world you want to use WorldEdit in by left clicking on it once, and press the **Configure** button.
8. You should have a mod selection screen. Select the one named something like `Minetest-WorldEdit` by left clicking once and press the **Enable MP** button.

8. You should have a mod selection screen. Select the one named something like `Minetest-WorldEdit` by left clicking once and press the **Enable Modpack** button.
9. Press the **Save** button. You can now use WorldEdit in that world. Repeat steps 7 to 9 to enable WorldEdit for other worlds too.
If you are having trouble, try asking for help in the [IRC channel](http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#minetest) (faster but may not always have helpers online) or ask on the [forum topic](https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=572) (slower but more likely to get help).

Usage
-----
WorldEdit works primarily through the WorldEdit GUI and chat commands. Depending on your key bindings, you can invoke chat entry with the "t" key, and open the chat console with the "F10" key.

WorldEdit has a huge potential for abuse by untrusted players. Therefore, users will not be able to use WorldEdit unless they have the `worldedit` privelege. This is available by default in single player, but in multiplayer the permission must be explicitly given by someone with the right credentials, using the follwoing chat command: `/grant <player name> worldedit`. This privelege can later be removed using the following chat command: `/revoke <player name> worldedit`.

Certain functions/commands such as WorldEdit `//lua` and `//luatransform` chat commands additionally require the `server` privilege. This is because it is extremely dangerous to give access to these commands to untrusted players, since they essentially are able to control the computer the server is running on. Give this privilege only to people you trust with your computer.

Interface
---------
WorldEdit is accessed in-game in two main ways.
The GUI adds a screen to each player's inventory that gives access to various WorldEdit functions. The [tutorial](Tutorial.md) and the [Chat Commands Reference](ChatCommands.md) may be helpful in learning to use it.

WorldEdit exposes all significant functionality in a simple Lua interface.
Adding WorldEdit as a dependency to your mod gives you access to all of the `worldedit` functions. The API is useful for tasks such as high-performance node manipulation, alternative interfaces, and map creation.

-----
Node names are required for many types of commands that identify or modify specific types of nodes. They can be specified in a number of ways.
First, by description - the tooltip that appears when hovering over the item in an inventory. This is case insensitive and includes values such as "Cobblestone" and "bronze block". Note that certain commands (namely, `//replace` and `//replaceinverse`) do not support descriptions that contain spaces in the `<searchnode>` field.

Note that certain commands (namely, `//replace` and `//replaceinverse`) do not support descriptions that contain spaces in the `<searchnode>` field.
Second, by name - the node name that is defined by code, but without the mod name prefix. This is case sensitive and includes values such as "piston_normal_off" and "cactus". Nodes defined in the `default` mod always take precedence over other nodes when searching for the correct one, and if there are multiple possible nodes (such as "a:celery" and "b:celery"), one is chosen in no particular order.

If there are multiple possible nodes (such as "a:celery" and "b:celery"), one is chosen in no particular order.
Finally, by full name - the unambiguous identifier of the node, prefixes and all. This is case sensitive and includes values such as "default:stone" and "mesecons:wire_00000000_off".
The node name "air" can be used anywhere a normal node name can, and acts as a blank node. This is useful for clearing or removing nodes. For example, `//set air` would remove all the nodes in the current WorldEdit region. Similarly, `//sphere 10 air`, when WorldEdit position 1 underground, would dig a large sphere out of the ground.

This is a step-by-step tutorial outlining the basic usage of WorldEdit.
Let's start with a few assumptions:
* You have a compatible version of Minetest working.
* See the [README](README.md) for compatibility information.
* You have a compatible version of Minetest working, that is 5.0 or later.
* You have WorldEdit installed as a mod.
* If using Windows, [MODSTER](https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?pid=101463) makes installing mods totally painless.
* Simply download the file, extract the archive, and move it to the correct mod folder for Minetest.
* See the installation instructions in [README](README.md) if you need more details.
* You are familiar with the basics of the game.
