    Assuming this is feasible to code in, I'd support this change. You didn't specify, but I assume you'd like to see spiders climb vertical walls at a 90º angle, instead of the flat 180º we see currently?

    @MacchuPicchu96 yes.

    I think it would be great, and I think that if they could also climb on ceilings and use webs to get off of ceilings safely, it would be cool

    @Skyler Winer the last thing we want though is for spiders to get past those overhangs players purposefully build on their walls.

    Climbing walls? Yes! 

    Climbing the ceiling? No! Have you seen how fat those spiders are?

    This would definitely help the immersion, I really like this idea <3

    Didn't like. I think this way spiders have to climb is kind of an essence of the game.

    To make the transition look more smooth, they could make it so the Spider jumps on the wall, and rotates mid-jump instead of walking towards it and rotating 90 degrees instantly

    YES! Can’t believe I never thought of this! The ceiling idea is a no, though. Sorry.

    If they can make the Dinnerbone name tag flip things upside down, then surely they can make spiders flip to match the surface they're walking on. Voted.

    They could make it similar to the spider animation in the mo' bends mod

    Yes please!!! And the ceiling, well, i mean, they added the Dinnerbone/Grumm easter egg.

    Would be freeky spidey cool ^^

    But without modifying their climbing ability, I mean only 90°, not on celling.

    @Mc Rat : good point. The spider would try to climb only if there is at least 2 or 3 block high and large, excluding glass and such block where they couldn't grip.

    Great Idea. What about spiders 'placing' cobwebs while they are climbing at a wall?

    heres a concept :D (from mo's bends mod)

    @ZeidXD geez, the modeling of the legs makes it more accurate and scary!

    @ZeidXD we NEED something similar to that!

    Yeah it kinda makes sense that they should climb like that.

    Love this. Also, the spiders climbing ceilings area should be posted under the category of Mobs, Animals, and non-Humanoids rather than commented under here.

  • Avatar

    This would be great! When climbing they look like they are flying or floating.

    This makes perfect sense but I do like the way the spiders climb the walls so derpy like.

    I think they should rotate 45ish degrees, and have their legs facing the blocks, 90 Degrees seems like an extreme turn, and the 45 degree rotation keeps with the original motif of spiders just escalating up walls

    That'd be a good solution, if they can't implement a smooth transition to 90-degrees

    Yeah, kinda surprising they haven't implemented this yet, it doesn't make any sense the way they do it now

    Why want this added along time ago??

    But this would be amazing

    I definitely Agree with this post there not much Animations for Mobs in the game.

  • Avatar

    This is a great idea and your right they gave animations for pandas and ect. So the spiders should actually climb not faceplant and fly to the top of a wall
