Spawning spiders

Post by Mathuz »

I tried to put func_monsterspawner into my map. It worked for every monster I tried, expect for spider, which is, unfortunately, the monster I need to spawn :) With my coding knowledge I was not able to locate the reason why the spider won't spawn, when compared with other monsters. :|

I wanted to be sure and I made a test map for spawning spiders and I ran into trouble. Probably the same trouble as you, that is a trigger making a spawning sparkle but no monster appearing (whereas it worked with an archer for example).
The vanilla "Tower of the Dark Mage" map gave me the trick: you have to put your func_monsterspawner not ON the ground but ABOVE, say at an altitude of 16 units in the air. Other monsters don't require it (so that their func_monsterspawner's bottom face can be aligned on the floor surface) but spiders do.

Hope this answer doesn't come too late. :)

Thanks man, it works! This one I probably wouldn't figure out.
