Step 3) Installing World Edit for Single Player

Once you've got World Edit downloaded, it's time to actually install it into Minecraft. Luckily, this is pretty easy. First off, you want to hit the Windows key on your keyboard and ‘R' at the exact same time. This will open up an application called ‘Run'. In the search box, simply type ‘%appdata%'. That will open up a Windows Explorer window with a bunch of folders in it. You're looking for the one called ‘.minecraft'. Open up that folder.

After you're in the ‘.minecraft', you should have a folder called ‘mods'. If you don't, simply create it like I do in the image above. Once you've found the mods folder, open it up, and drag and drop the World Edit file you downloaded earlier in this tutorial into it. After that, the hard part is done!

Step 4) Opening Minecraft W/ Single Player World Edit

Last but not least, you need to open up Minecraft, but before you just go ahead and jump into the latest release, remember this is a Forge mod. Thus, you need to select Forge when launching into the game. To do this, simply click the little arrow next to the play button in the Minecraft launcher. Once you've done that, you'll get a big list of all the Minecraft versions you currently have downloaded. Select the one title ‘forge', and click play!
