This mod adds some new spider enemies. They will spawn more at night. There is a chance a spider egg cluster will spawn too. This is a good source of eggs and spider silk, which is used to craft spider web traps. These traps slow and damage the enemy. Skinning spiders gives spider silk, and a very small chance to give you a mountable spider. Wild spiders will die after 5 minutes of being alive, to keep the population down and allow actual zombies the chance to spawn more often. A rare queen spider can also spawn and will give much more silk than regular spiders as well as a higher chance to drop the mount.
This is a modlet and does not require a world restart. Simply place into Mods folder and play!
Tested and works with Alpha 19.4 b3
Recommended to be played single player or multiplayer. Works fine on servers as well.
- (new) Added new black spiders, and made spiders capable of jumping. Also changed the audio source of the spider, so now you can pinpoint where they are a bit easier.
- Updated to allow spider web traps to be repairable with spider silk and a stone axe, nailgun, or claw hammer as well as have more health. Lowered egg chance to 0,3 instead of the 4,8 count.
