The WorldPainter application will look quite like a regular 3D painting application on Windows. However, all changes and adjustments will be made in a real Minecraft world. First, create a new world and select the latest version it can support. This will ensure that the exported world will work correctly with the version 1.19.

You can choose the type of tool, brush, and blocks you want to interact with to start with. The best way to play with this app is to select the “Height” tool and click on the terrain to create ridges and dips.

Once done, open the “View” tab and select “Show 3D View” to open another window showing how a 3D image of what is being created.
