    Hey everyone. This is a conversion of Kinboat's spitting spider. Instead of water, he spits fire. This is for the Star Wars mod. Thanks to Kinboat for the original unit and Chris85 for helping with the pallette.

    Nice work. This could be good with several fantasy mods. My Diablo project comes to mind.

    It's okay, I didn't notice the date until you mentioned it, I don't recall seeing this show up before, so it might be good that it was accidentally bumped. eh.

    Actually there is a way around the A-Holes at Blizzard, which I have dealt with for years on modding. The trick is to use nothing form their games. Everything has to be done by fan based material, nothing they have copyrighted. Names of things in their games aren't truly copyrighted as they borrowed form everyone else. Thier concepts are far from original. Only thier artwork.

    I know you are buisy now, with that buisiness thingy starting up, but can we expect the Diablo mod in the (even far?) future? I mean, you haven`t dicarded the idea, right?

    I would never discard it, and maybe sometime in the far future I will make an attempt at it. I have everything that Blizzard published ever for Diablo including the novels. It's the best game they ever put together and I'm not sure they will ever top it, short of Diablo 3. So I will keep it on my to-do list. ;) Although it might be done for Civ 4 by the time I get around to it. I still don't have Civ4 yet, I haven't had the time, as you know.

    That's what I've been saying about a Starcraft mod, but everyone is scared of Blizzard. :sad:

    Since this thread was accidentally bumped, I should like to place those comments I missed when it came out.

    I should have liked to see this in action in Warhammer, but it is already two spiders there. I love this one.

    Is it used in any finished mod?
