Please, do me a favor, don't add ANY spiders... I have arachnophobia and when I meet a spider in game, after heart attack, I close game and uninstall it... Also I think that there are (or will be) more people like me.

Or, if U could of course, after creating spider mob, create special mod or option which turns it off :)

Thank you in advance :] :D

    Guys, please don't be mean to Rijin. :) Phobias are a real thing - for example i find moths and butterflies very disgusting. :P

    To not be completely offtopic, given that NerdKingdom have set modability as one of their foremost goals, I'm sure you'll be able to exclude the monsters that bother you from the game, Rijin - have no fear (no pun intended!)
  • RijinRijin REGISTERED Posts: 14
    Thanks MuSashi :) Don't starve give us possibility of choosing which monsters appears in game... That will be good option for ppl with phobias or special requirements :D

    how pretty ;)
    But yeah i am sure you will be able to mod animals out if you want they probably will make that pretty easy but the official servers will probably have every creature in it even spider and butterfly like creatures.

    screw punctuation it is my life long passion to kill all that is legible.

    That's what I love most about spiders in games! They freak me out... sometimes... depends really.

    I've already been telling the team since day one no spiders. It's not because I can't handle the things, it is just one of those fantasy tropes that needs to go away. And they are creepy. That and crates. But no guarantees, knowing this team there may be a crate full of spiders somewhere in the game. Just saying.

    I like spiders in games, and I like them to be as creepy and scary as possible :P (probably cuz I like horror games, but thats just me.) I DID once have a phobia that these guys were staring in my window at night though.

    err... well i have the same issue than you Rijin i have a severe aracnophobia but the best way to get over it is being around spiders... and the best way to start with is with spiders in games cause they can't do you nothing irl... when i find a spider irl i panic and destroy it at any way (last time i used a chair to smash it... and i broke my hand once punching it (fears are incontrolable) so trust me) ingame monsters like spiders are a lot easier to handle and will help you to get over... now i can "tolerate" smaller ones without destroying or burning my entire house e_e.. less is nothing i guess

    I found a nice black widow living in my backyard over the past weekend and before taking care of her, I got to watch a male widow trying his best to climb up into the web. Quite a terrifying courtship but love knows no bounds! I was moved by this tragic moment of nature and decided...

    There will still be no spiders in this game!

    WHAT!!?? In that creepy looking biome, I would really like to find spiders and maybe even tame them :)
  • NekochuNekochu REGISTERED, ADMINISTRATORS, Developers Posts: 244 Developer
    How about I give you crocanids in the swamp? Crocodiles with multiple legs that are not technically spiders!

    Sorry the spider thing is just a running joke amongst the developers and me around the office, I find it hilarious that it has now emerged in a new life on the forums!

    That would be amazing, it be cool hearing there hiss and if they shot projectiles. ONly thing though they would be a croc out of water (since there is no water) but still awesome...

    And a good joke it is :)

    Any creepy creature you create that can attack me in that creepy biome is great for me.

    But seriously... we need venomous, think of all the things we could do with the venom :)

    Oh I agree, spiders are on my least liked list.
    I think TUG will have their own version of creative monsters.

    I could come up with a few ideas of things which might fit more into "TUG" than a multi-eyed multi-legged monster!
    Lets see,
    Here is a sketch I did a couple years ago ( testing our a digital art pad I got )

    I'd much rather see these mean but cute things running around.

    I believe people will create a mod- That'll create a filter like there's in Don't Starve. Yah know what i'm talkinh about?
    But, untill they will add spiders, IF THEY WILL, it's going to be a long time :)

    Well... there could be some D&D Forgotten Realms copyright issues from creating Driders Llolth or any Drow type additions. I realize that was a Dr Who Episode, but she was clearly "a spider Queen" which references the D&D franchised monster(s).
