Note: This is a continuation of the World Downloader mod by nairol. He is no longer able to work on the project and I have agreed to continue updating the mod, fixing bugs and adding new features. The old forum thread can be found here.
With this mod you can download parts of a multiplayer world while you are connected to the server.
Download World Downloader [1.5.2].zip (2013-05-06) (Supports Realms)
The links will always get the newest mod available for the indicated Minecraft version. The upload date is indicated after the filename. The above link is for World Downloader v2 (formerly WDL v2 BETA).

Installation (NOT Forge/ModLoader compatible):
Important usage notes:
- You need to open chests while downloading or their contents cannot be saved.
- The mod can only save chunks which are sent by the server as you move around. If you see the chunk while downloading, then it's saved! If you don't move, it will likely only save 10 chunks (160 blocks) in each direction.
- The seed is not saved automatically. You must be op to request the seed with the /seed command. World Downloader will pull the seed automatically from the server response.
- When you click "stop download", wait until the world is saved to disconnect. You will be notified in chat.
If you find any bugs that crash Minecraft PLEASE also add the text from the error report screen. Without that I probably won't be able to help you. Problems can be posted in this forum or on the project's bug tracker at github.
