    Well, there's the World Downloader mod that you can try.

    The Hive doesn't give their world downloads out. All maps are Hive Exclusive, meaning that you can play these maps ONLY on the Hive. Sorry. If you were to somehow get it, you will be confronted by the Staff.

    Well there are some very few exceptions to this but yes all new maps (From the time before the arcade) are exclusive and if you download them it is practically stealing.
    I am sorry for you but Team Vareide and all other map creators who are working on our maps put a whole lot of effort into those maps to make TheHive what it is and to stay that special and awesome place it is we have to make them exclusive.

    If you just like one specific thing about the map you may just rebuild it or you could ask a member of Team Vareide if he is kind enough to build a little something for you but it won't be possible to download a map.

    As mentioned above, it is technically possible to use a world-saving mod to save a copy of the world on your computer. If you put it on a server and the admins get word of it, they will probably not be very happy with you. On the other hand, if you just play it in single-player or on a LAN with some friends, nobody's going to care.

    The maps are, of course, supposed to be exclusive to the Hive. Vareide and his team are understandably not going to facilitate people stealing it for their own servers by putting it up for download. If they were to make it openly available, they'd have no control at all over where it ended up.

    By the way,
    Isn't that the same flawed argument used by the RIAA to discourage people from downloading music? "stealing" would require the original to be gone. The map stays on the server if you download it.
