    How do I find the blocks inside a sphere with a radius of say, 3 and if the block is air replace it?
    Must be easy but I cannot figure it out without alot of unnecessary code

    @VortexGmer Using the sphere generation method:
    /** Creates a sphere */
    public ArrayList<Block> sphere(final Location center, final int radius) {
        ArrayList<Block> sphere = new ArrayList<Block>();
        for (int Y = -radius; Y < radius; Y++)
          for (int X = -radius; X < radius; X++)
             for (int Z = -radius; Z < radius; Z++)
                if (Math.sqrt((X * X) + (Y * Y) + (Z * Z)) <= radius) {
                   final Block block = center.getWorld().getBlockAt(X + center.getBlockX(), Y + center.getBlockY(), Z + center.getBlockZ());
    return sphere;
    From there, you can loop through all of the blocks, check if it's air or not then replace it.
