A recent video by Roger Badgerman, a Minecraft-focused account, leaks a new feature to revolutionize the game. The 45-second clip shows off a purported Minecraft world editor, a functionality that would allow for rapid, large-scale changes to a Minecraft world or the construction of massive structures on the fly. The innovation here would be implementing such a feature in Minecraft Bedrock, the retail, multi-platform version of Minecraft. Since its release, the game had no official tools, and we thought it was not Mojang’s style. But Minecraft’s creative mode could level up if a few tools were increased capabilities of the creative mode. Here are the first details about Minecraft’s probable world-editor tool.
Minecraft Is Probably Getting a World-Editor Tool
As first reported by Eurogamer, such functionality has been hinted at in data mining for a while now, like in this post from Minecraft add-on developer SmokeyStack. Reverse engineering is like magic; it reveals that the expected feature is on the way for real. But that’s not the only piece of information we have; a Minecraft-related account also shared a screen video of the tool.
Don't worry creators! I have things for you as well…

The classic, harder-core Java edition of Minecraft has had mods that allow for large-scale editing for a long time, but this new feature would be a game-changer for the Bedrock edition. Badgerman’s clip shows off some intuitive, brush-like tools for crafting blocks in a Minecraft world, and he also demonstrates the copy and pasting of everything from individual blocks up to massive structures.
Badgerman’s capture shows an amazing benefit, but Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything about this or other in-game productivity tools that could be under development. If it does, it will surely be a hit with Minecraft players of all ages and will likely result in some truly impressive viral builds.
Many in the Minecraft community have been eagerly anticipating the release of such a feature, and the news has quickly spread across social media. Fans have expressed their excitement on Twitter and Reddit, with some speculating on the possibilities that this new feature could bring to the game.
