A couple of days ago, i was playing on my single player world, and something happened with minecraft and it crashed, i came back to find that everytime i loaded my world, it would just get stuck at Downloading Terrain. I have logged 100's and 100's of hours on this world, is there any way to get this world back?

This happened to me too. For me it's only on my most played world, all the others work. Do your other worlds work?
What messed up my game was trying to install a mod.

I hope there's a way to get the world back. Fingers crossed :)

Minecraft does not handle crashing mid session well.  This usually will lead to world corruption.

What you can do to try and rescue it is to get the MCedit world editing program. Make a backup of your world just in case.  Then launch MCedit, tell it open your world by browsing to the location and selecting the level.dat file.   It takes a little bit to get used to the controls, look in the readme file for the basics.  Look around and see if you see any odd world holes, if you do those are corrupt chunks.  Usually there is no way to rescue those, so your only option is to recreate them back to the way they were when the world first generated, however if you have an older backup copy of your world you could copy those chunks from the backup using the MCedit schematic function and paste them into your repaired world, later after you're done removing the corruption. To remove corrupt chunks click on one corner and highlight the hole drawing a box around it (height doesn't matter). Find the button that says 'Chunk Control' and click it once.  This should make a big box around the area you selected.  Next look for a box/button (on left side I believe) that says 'Create', click that and it will ask if you want to continue, say yes and it will delete and regenerate that area.  Hit escape and select 'deselect' to unselect the boxes around the region after each repair.

After you've removed all the corrupt chunks that you can find (or if you cant find any), it's a good idea to run the region repair tool.  Hold down the control key and select 'world info', in the menu that pops up select 'repair regions'.  This can take awhile to complete, the larger your world the longer it will take.  It will tell you when it's done.

Once it's done hold down control and select 'Save', once it's finished saving hold control key again and select quit.  Try your world out and hopefully it will open.  Good luck!

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.
Stupid 3D..

Thanks For Trying to help, but i didnt see any weird chunks, and deleted the end and the nether because i had some major buildings in there, but it still got stuck at Downloading Terrain. Is there anything else that could help me fix this?

You could have a corrupt level.dat, try this.

1. BACKUP YOUR WORLD
2. Create a new world
3. Copy the new worlds level.dat, level,dat_old, session.lock, spc.settings, all those files (not folders)
4. Replace it with the corrupted ones

You'll see you got two worlds named the same, delete the new one you made or just rename the old one.

It kind of worked, i was able to access my world, but all of my structures are gone. Is there anyway to narrow down to which file is causing all of these problems?

Glad to hear that worked, but I do believe the structures are stored in region/dim folders. I wanted to ask do you still have our items and stuff. Also since the level.dat files have been changed it might have changed your world location try finding the coordinates your buildings.

Really at this point I can't think of any troubleshooting tips, sadly your structures maybe lost. Don't loose hope, try doing a searches on minecraft world recovery.
