    I agree, new mobs are much better than old ones (like pigs, cows, chickens...)

    They look kinda dumb climbing the walls with this animation

    Make it a toggle-able option so it doesn’t make people mad that it was changed.

    They could climb sealings? That is in real life.

    I agree with that idea !  It's just a detail, but It would add a little touch of immersion that i think is pretty much important for the overall game experience !

    Maybe they could also climb on ceilings.

    This one of those "I should have been that way all along" things.

    Adding a spider that's small like the size of silverfishes would make the game great

    Their legs always touch the block that is keeping them up

    While we're at it, imagine if they could also dangle down from a strand of web... But I agree with some other commenters here that they shouldn't be able to climb ceilings, so I'm not certain how that would come into play. Either way, vertical climbing could probably be implemented on-theme in a cave update (*hint hint wink wink*).

    Id like to see spider get the ability to walk on ceilings as well .

    It would make them more unique and give them an extra edge under ground .imagine mining in a cave and then a spider falls out of the ceiling and attacks you by surprise .

    Maybe they could spawn on ceilings as well?

    And for people worried about your overhangs spiders would perhaps only be able to climb inward angles and not around corners i think that would make things easier for everyone especially Mojang

    Good idea for the physics

    I support this but please let spiders crawl on ceilings to and when they jump OFF ceilings at players they rotate before landing during there attack from the ceiling to the floor! :D

    I feel that they should also be able to smoothly go sideways along a wall. The AI would be modified so that they do this sometimes to go toward a player. Think about what it would look like if a swarm of spiders, some creeping along the wall, were speeding towards you! Terrifying!

    I love this idea I also think that they should do that with ceilings because have you seen a spider hanging on a ceiling with it's back?

    Yeah, these spiders must be using some kind of witchcraft to climb like that!

    Yes, they should definitely have a climbing animation because spiders can't climb walls with their face, but I don't know about spiders on ceilings, because while that would be more realistic, it would also be creepy.

    I really think this is a great idea, but I think it should be a game rule option, with spider climbing animation a default, and spiders should not be able to climb ceilings, because they can’t be stopped by stairs If they can

    They could make it so spiders can climb ceilings, but only if there is adequate space (ie. they need a 3x3 place to hang on the ceiling at least) This would implement a cool feature while keeping spider defences valid. I also like the idea of it being a gamerule.

    Make it so that the animation is still 180 but it actually wobbles and the legs move and it looks more.........like a spider.

    yes they dont even need a complicated animation they could just make it so it face 90 degree angle

    Not only the GameRule for horizontal (and ceiling) movement is a great idea.
    Rather, consideration must also be given to people with achachnophobia.
    A correct animated single leg suspension would be a cool thing, but something like this must be able to optionally turned off in the settings menu on the client side.

    I've been staring at that spider climb walls the same way as long as I can remember, and always wanting something.. well.. at least a spider floating up as if it was a gyroscope.

    I think mojang should remodelate the way spiders move entirely, becouse sometimes they climb up to corners beetween blocks and get stuck, not really offering a decent threat.

    This is definitely great! Spiders have been overshadowed and are probably the easiest mind to face in the overworld. I think maybe the should also be able to climb upside down and have an animation for that too.
    Ofcourse changing these animations may also have to change their AI to and affect farms for large spiders as the their model shape would have to change from 2x2x1 to a 1x2x2

    In addition to former comments, which are concerning about an possible ceiling strolling spider:
    How about some Block types spiders can't hold on at all. For example Ice types of blocks maybe. Glass, perhaps. Granular blocks like sand & congrete powder and so on.
    Or another approach would also be a possible option: not multiple block types, but
    just one block can't be climbed. Slime block. Maybe Honey block.

    Agreed. But not on ceilings. Also, I think it'd be cool if their abdomen would hang down just slightly behind them to give them some weight. I think just that little detail would make them seem far more alive and scary since it'd imply that these big creepy spiders aren't these hallow and weightless game models and more like these heavy crawlers. This wouldn't really apply to dog, fox, and cat tails since tails are pretty weightless. But a spider's abdomen has weight.

     

    Also should the spider's jumping animation be more like a foxes?
