Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section. Excellent work!

    Fantastic.
    I think I should celebrate this day when there are so many good models that you made as a holiday.
    What you did was definitely worth it.

    Really great job, i love the twitchyness of the stand animation and the movement of the mandibles. The glow around its eyes is also a nice touch.

    Regarding that walk animation though, i think you shouldn't be afraid to incorporate more motion to the root position of the character. Right now, its body stays perfectly centered throughout the cycle, whereas in real life it would probably sway a little from side to side, or bob up and down. In almost every animation, you always want to ask yourself - "how can i incorporate more motion into this?" - Even if the action portrayed in the animation is supposed to be subtle and careful, it is important to add some movement to every limb, if only a little.

    Duuude - I'm lucky I could make all eight legs move and look vaguely normal as-is - incorporating abdomen motion on top of all eight legs is a bit beyond the work/skill level I'm willing to do without being paid xD

    It's a hobby, I don't like getting frustrated with things I do for fun :<

    Great model reminds me of battle realms' shale spiders, did you take inspiration from it?

    I saw Battle Realms when I was a kid - I wanted to play it, but never got the chance to

    Upon doing a quick google-search, those spiders are-- strikingly similar :O

    It may be that when the devs were making War of the Ring, they simply ported the spiders and gave 'em a LotR reskin, I'm told a ton of stuff was carried over

    Greetings, I'd like to report an issue with the model.
    I guess the GIF I have attached will speak for itself, but here is a summary:
    I am no modeler, so excuse me if I use incorrect terminology.
    - The selection box of the models is very large.
    - It appears to be affected by the direction they are facing.
    - The "click" box is fine (eg, I can't click around them and target them), it's just when trying to box select them that this happens.

    What the--
    Huh.

    Here, let me update the pack with the versions I'm using right now - tell me if it still happens

    *Edit
    There we go, sorry about that!

    The issue is still there for me unfortunately. :(
    - I removed the old models.
    - I imported the new ones.
    - Closed the Editor, opened again, tested the map.

    The exact same thing as in the GIF still happens.

    This big selectable "plane" so to say is still there, but there is something different now:
    While previously rotating the unit would also rotate the plane, now the plane is at a fixed position.

    That's-- baffling

    When I tested it, my basic click and click/drag worked, no stretched selection box, no problems

    Unfortunately I can't make any more edits, my power was just turned off and I'm about to go homeless, so uh...

    You might want to get Gluma to check it out

    *Edit 1
    Sorry

    *Edit 2
    My power has been turned back on for 2 days, I'm re-opening my Patreon for help since this is a bit of an emergency, again my apologies
