    If the title doesnt make sense ill try yo explain it better, if I have 1 chunk, I want to claim or save they x and z's of the chunks around it 3x3 chunks I have the core chunk then I want to create a 3x3 chunks around it.

    Why not just use some simple math?

    leftTop = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() - 1, chunk.getZ() - 1);
    leftMiddle = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() - 1, chunk.getZ());
    leftBottom = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() - 1, chunk.getZ() + 1);

    middleTop = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX(), chunk.getZ() - 1);
    middleBottom = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX(), chunk.getZ() + 1);

    rightTop = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() + 1, chunk.getZ() - 1);
    rightMiddle = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() + 1, chunk.getZ());
    rightBottom = world.getChunkAt(chunk.getX() + 1, chunk.getZ() + 1);


    Or if you only need the surrounding chunks and don't need to know which is which use a for loop

    1. for (int x = -1; x <= 1; x++)
    2. {
    3. for (int z = -1; z <= 1; z++)
    4. {
    5. Chunk chunk = world.getChunkAt(origChunk.getX() + x, origChunk.getZ() + z);
    6. }
    7. }

  3. If you can get a Location from within the center chunk you can add/subtract 16 to the X/Z values of that Location and then use the new Location to grab the surrounding chunks. For example, add 16 to the X of the original Location and grab the chunk at the new location. Then add 16 to the X and Z of the original Location and grab the chunk at that Location. Then just add 16 to the Z of the original Location and grab the chunk at that Location.

    I'm not going to go through all eight of the chunks but if you don't get the idea I can elaborate.
