🔩 How to Use WorldBorder plugin 🔩
To trim or fill your world you need to first set up a border with that plugin. To set a simple round border just use the following command:
/wb set 100
Now you just set a round border for your server with a radius of 100 blocks.
💠 How to Trim your world
The trim process will remove the chunks that are outside your world border. To trim your world you just need to use the following command:
/wb [worldname] trim [freq] [pad]
🔎 Fill the [worldname] with the world name you want to trim. If let empty, the current world will be used.
🔎 The [freq] value is the number of chunks per second it will try to check (default 5000).
🔎 The [pad] value is how much of a buffer to keep beyond your borders (default 208).
After using the command mentioned above, you will have to use the following command for the trim to start:
/wb trim confirm
💠 How to Fill your world
The filling process will add chunks until it finds your border, basically filling your world border with chunks. This command is used to pre-generate your world. To fill your world you just need to use the following command:
/wb [worldname] fill [freq] [pad] [force]
🔎 The [freq] value is the number of times per second it will try to check/generate a chunk (default 20).
🔎 The [pad] value is how much of a buffer to add beyond your borders (default 208, should keep any more chunks from being generated by players).
🔎 To force loading all world chunks instead of automatically skipping the ones which are already fully generated specify the 'true' value for the [force].
After using the command mentioned above, you will have to also use the following command for the fill to start:
/wb fill confirm
