Once you have an area selected, you can use the command //expand to expand the region from the underground and into the air.

You can define a region by using the command: /area define <NAME>.

Modifying areas

Areas can be changed with /area redefine <NAME> or deleted with /area delete <NAME>

Area entry / exit messages (untested!)

You can set messages that are displayed for players that are entering or leaving any area with /area entry <AREA> <MESSAGE...> or /area exit <AREA> <MESSAGE...>.
