I was watching the acid spitting spider on twitch and I thought to myself, what could we do with this. A cool mechanic would be to have different sized spiders that you can build on by finding and capturing them. The bigger they are, the more weight they can carry (you can add this to other creatures as well (-;). Then you could also have the small swarm spiders drill holes in buildings or ships to enter them. This could avoid the problem of not being able to reach the rest of the structure because of damage.P.S, could have the swarm spiders free roam the land instead of having to be deployed directly from ships. Hope it's not too much. Thanks for reading if you did:-)
how to capture them? and building on spiders? these spiders must be gigantic! and we already have spider leggs.. to... make spiders...
All of this sounds exactly like what the monsters are going to be, maybe not acid spitting or drilling spiders, but I'm sure this will make it into the game.
