Frequently asked questions
What is Amulet?
Amulet is a program to externally modify Minecraft save files. This may be to fix a corrupt area of the world that stops the game from loading or to modify the terrain such as moving or copying builds.
It aims to have similar functionality as MCEdit Unified and is able to edit the newer format worlds that MCEdit is not able to open.
Amulet is a project started by some of the MCEdit Unified developers but is an entirely new program.
It is still being developed but is getting to a point where it can be used in projects.
When will this feature get added?
We plan to add every feature that exists in MCEdit Unified but to do so will take time. Be patient with us while we work on implementing everything.
We have a roadmap of features that we plan to add. There is no specific timeline for when these features will get added but we prioritise features the majority of users want.
The best place to request features is on the Amulet bug tracker. Use the search tool to see if your suggestion already exists. If it does exist give it a thumbs up so we know what to prioritise otherwise create a new feature request.
Can Amulet edit entities?
Amulet does not yet have support for entities.
There is a feature request for it here
Why are blocks/stairs not rotating?
This is not currently supported but something we want to add in the future.
Working out what each block state would rotate to is going to be a bit of an undertaking.

What do the blue, black and red squares at the chunk base mean?
In the 3D edit sub-program chunks are loaded and displayed in a 3D editor. At the base and ceiling of the chunk is a square to help identify where the chunk boundaries are.
Does Amulet have filters like MCEdit has?
Amulet does have a plugin system so that users can write custom code that Amulet will run. In Amulet they are known as operations and can be found in the 3D editor sub-program in the operation tab.
Can I open a Bedrock .mcworld file in Amulet
.mcworld files are .zip files containing all the world files with the file extension changed.

No. In order to make the game recreate a chunk all the chunk data needs to be deleted which can only be done by deleting the whole chunk.
