Roll: Spiders
« on: October 10, 2009, 01:02:10 pm »


So what do Spiders do?
Well they engulf nearby enemies in flames. Flames! Don't worry Spy, as long as your disguised or cloaked the Spiders won't go all W.M1 on you.
Place the little critters in chokepoints (tunnels, stairways, doorways) and around cap points.

Carry Your Spider!
You can carry your spider by looking at him and either Right-Click or press  Use. When one of you are low on health the spider will try to take care of the situation by either giving you or sucking your health.

Here's what determines when he'll start draining your health or give you some.

Spider squeals every minute which gives him a  25HP boost from all the fun he's having.

Anyone you shoot gets their body covered in spiders. They take like 3 dmg/s and have their screen partially obscured by them. If it's possible. Haha or your shots turn your targets into spiders, which are incredibly fast, yet only have like 25 health. Death or a resupply to change back. There's my 2 cents.

Well I would say web an area but we have a slow cube. Spiders clearly should poison and do dot damage.

Say if your "bitten" by a spider your poisoned till you die, but its like 2hp/s so its not liek super quick, so you can still get health and stuff.

It should be able to run up walls. Go into small areas. Be able to spit poison like a gun. And there should only be allowed 1 per team at a time

Here's a few ideas

-Be able to control the spider a set time
-Can traverse any type of terrain
-Spit poison
OR
-Shoot a string of web at a specific player to slow them down for a set time (if shot enough they will freeze for a set time maybe?)
example- You have a spider up above the battle and want to slow that medic down to prevent him from getting to the frontlines with that uber

Maybe
-Once the timer runs out the spider can explode dealing a set amount of explosive damage

Course with abilities like that, you can always limit it to one per team, and make it semi expensive.

If someone can be kind and find some spider sounds so we can use.
Preferably: idling, moving, attacking, getting hurt and so on.

Well the spiders won't be able to shoot their famed "Poision Spit" but instead they will shoot flames  :D Progress is looking good.
