File Description

    This mod swaps the facehugger with a large spider model in both singleplayer and multiplayer. There are two variants of the spider included. The first is a black widow spider. The second is a brown wolf spider. Both spiders are larger than the default facehugger and are near the size of the alien runner. Each spider has matching spider sound effects, unique huds and unique vision mode skins to match the corresponding base skin. Both spiders will function exactly like the facehugger, with wall-walking, facehugging, etc. In order to prevent cheating and potential glitches, the spiders have the standard hitbox of the facehugger. So while the spider is easier to be spotted in multiplayer due to its larger size, the tradeoff is that they are a bit harder to kill as the spiders need to be shot dead center.

    I was originally planning to release the spider model at the same size scale as the facehugger, but the model would warp when I scaled it down in size. Instead of scrapping it, I realized it was quite fun to be chased by large spiders in AvP2. Since spiders spawn from eggs, just like facehuggers, it works quite well. Give this a try on a lifecycle server or any singleplayer map loaded with facehuggers. I think you'll enjoy having a new enemy/npc. Have fun!

Version: 1.0
New textures: Yes
New sounds: Yes
New models: Yes
New hud: Yes

Known bugs: 

The new spider model uses the same size hitbox as the default facehugger. To kill the spider, shoot at the center mass of the spider. The spider won't receive damage if you shoot its legs.

This is not a glitch, but the hitbox has to stay the default size to be multiplayer compatable. I tried increasing the hitbox for singleplayer, but then the spider ai would no longer use pounce attacks or jump. Therefore, the standard size hitbox remains.

A) Extract or copy the SPIDER_BW.rez and SPIDER_WOLF.rez files from the .zip and place them in your custom folder in your Alien Versus Predator 2 directory. If you dont have a custom folder, you must make one. *Hold mouse>Right click>New>Folder*                                                                                                                                                                                                             

B) Start AVP2.exe. Click "OPTIONS" on the launcher window with the picture of the queen.

C) To run the spider model, type the following in the command line exactly as follows: 

-rez custom/SPIDER_BW.rez

or

-rez custom/SPIDER_WOLF.rez

Note that you can only run one of the spider models at a time. So pick either the black widow spider or wolf spider command to run.

D) Check "Always specify these command-line parameters."

E) You will know if you installed the spider model correctly if you see a spider in place of the facehugger in AvP2.

C) RaptorRed for helping me brainstorm a bit in fixing the model.

D) Belushi for some online testing.

E) Thanks to all the people who give me feedback and download my files. : )
