I've seen the question come up a few times now that people are asking what do they open .schematic files with.  So here's the sticky with the information:

MCedit Homepage:

MCEdit is a versatile map utility, designed for moving blocks from one level to another.

  • With it, you can open a level of nearly any type and fly around in glorious 3D with multiple levels of detail!
  • Select millions of blocks and clone them anywhere else in the level.
  • Fill a boxy selection with the block of your choice, or replace one kind of block with another.
  • Export blocks to a "schematic" file for later use.
  • Import a schematic or an entire level into any world using the crane.
  • Move the player or his spawn point.
  • Create and and remove chunks from the world.
  • Fill blackened areas with light. Find bugs!

Select the area you want to light (does not need to include height)
Then select the Chunk tool (last one in the toolbar)
Select Relight option

EDIT:  Also when you save the world (CTRL-S) it automatically relights everything.

The only stupid question... is the one you don't ask!

It probably is too big! or maybe it isn't a .schematic, so make sure and add a .schematic to the end of the file name before you open it!
Please give me diamonds, as they will go to funding the C.S.D.P.(Creeper Spawn Destroyer Project). DOWN WITH CREEPERS! XD (Gold ingots are also accepted!)

Click on this picture please! It's my WIP Adv. Map!

 You can put them in any folder, if you cannot find your schematic files, search your documents for MCEdit.
