MCEdit Filters

This Filter expands the selection box to include all the connected non-air blocks to that block. It will expand the selection box to encompass the object it finds.

To use, select one block only and run the filter.

Gersin MC was seeking the option to specify where in the selection box the fill should start from. v2 does this.

As discussed, attached.

The .schematic goes in the root of MCEdit directory (same level as where the binary file is), filter .py goes in the filter directory.

Custom Name to Coordinates

Despite the clunky name, this is a general purpose filter to embed co-ordinates as a string in the CustomName (or other) field of a Tile Entity.

The simplest use case is to add display co-ordinates to a Command Block so when it logs to the admin log, you can see which command block is 'talking' instead of having them all named '[@]'

Test it in a backup world and let me know what you think!

Converts Dropper contents in the selection area into a Command in a CommandBlock newly created above the Dropper.

Request from Mader -

It does a sort-of-random-erody thing from the top down.

This is a utility that will destroy any chunk which is all air and has no Tile Entities (chests, signs, etc) and has no Entities (mobs, cows, armour stands, items, etc). Suggested by Qwertyuiopthepie

Select an area including the chunks you want to purge, run the filter, and save the result. You may need to reload the world (CTRL+R) to see the changes applied in MCEdit.

ALWAYS WORK WITH A BACKUP. While all care has been taken in the testing of this code, it is not using well documented APIs and you may damage your world.

v2 also purges chunks whose terrain is marked as "not populated" (i.e. the chunks around the very edge of the explored map). 

v3 suppresses re-lighting the chunks in the selection area, so the save is very quick.

This filter smooths the area in the selection box. The implementation is to average the pixel height based on the surrounding pixels. It was scratch-built by me using first-principles. It works well in conjunction with the LANDSCAPE filter for importing digital elevation models

This filter Creates command blocks that cause one entity to orbit another.

v3 adds support for the orbiting entity to rotate while it orbits.

This filter creates cladding for certain blocks in your world.

v2 includes an 'invert' option, suggested by JsKingBoo and coded by martinhanzik on this Reddit thread:

What it does is shown below (v1 behaviour):
