As mentioned here, if Allow_Download=1, then clients will be able to download maps and their sceneries/textures before joining the game. The request used is as follows:

<filename> [!] Request file
STARTFILES
<size> [!] 4 byte Integer
<filename> [!] If nothing is found here, then file doesn't exist
<filename-contents-binary>
ENDFILES

NOTE: the file transfer protocol is changing in 1.5.0 to allow the request of multiple files simultaneously.
