One of the great aspects about the game Minecraft is that users can create and edit different worlds. To assist with Minecraft map creation and editing, MCEdit has been introduced. This map editor allows individuals access to existing worlds and helps them create and edit the environment.

To operate the software, a user opens MCEdit and chooses a map that has been saved. Utilizing the keyboard and mouse allows a user to move around the world and visualize everything. Basic functions allow a person to cut, copy and delete specific sections, and a brush tool allows the distribution of material in desired sections. Other tools in the editor include a cloning function, replace and fill options.

MCEdit has an excellent interface that is fairly intuitive and simple to use. As with most maps that have 3D spaces, patience and practice is required to produce the desired effect for a user. Minecraft enthusiasts that are experienced with playing the game will probably have an easy time understanding how the editing software works. Beginners to Minecraft may have a slight learning curve to tackle, but everything on the interface is explained and should be predictable.

Some Minecraft fans consider the use of map editors as cheating, but MCEdit allows an individual to do some pretty awesome things that would be impossible otherwise.

MCEdit is one of the most frequently used Minecraft editors that is available for free download on the Internet. It allows players to create new layers in a game and expand their imaginations. It's user-friendly and a recommended addition for individuals who already enjoy playing Minecraft.
