This guide will show you how to trim or fill your world using WorldBorder plugin.

NOTE: You need to first run Bukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot and then to install the WorldBorder plugin. Here you can find our guide for installing plugins into your server.

Here you can find the official page of the plugin WorldBorder.

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 the 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 fill process will add chunks until it find your border, basically filling your world border with chunks. 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
