Minecraft 161 - World Downloader Mod Review

Ever play on an SMP server and think, "Wouldn't it be great to play this as my single player world?" Server admins can always just copy their game world data, but regular old users don't have that option. Or, at least, they didn't.

The Minecraft World Downloader, according to the author, "can download parts of a multiplayer world while you are connected to the server." These parts are saved to your single player folder and you can visit those parts later offline. While I can see some good uses for this, there is also some potential for abuse, so use it wisely. Me, I'm just fascinated by clever programming tricks.
