    TL;DR: Warning: lifelike. Not for arachnophobes, especially the larger one with Hood Frontend.

    (I’m not responsible for any spilled coffee and ruined computers, period. You have been warned.)

    Includes two spiders: the Running Spider and the Giant Running Spider, both as RC and RL versions, set to RC by default.

    Both have custom sounds. Both require the latest RVGL (as of the end of 2021).

    As expected, the Running Spider is small, scurrying between cars and getting run over from time to time.

    As expected, the Giant Running Spider is its larger brother, stomping on cars and climbing across barriers to get to them.

    Both are spooky in their own way, having lifelike movement appropriate for their size. The Giant Running Spider can also be ridden with hood cam. The small Running Spider's hood cam is essentially a better-positioned follow cam.

    Credits: Acclaim for the game, Citywalker for the original 8-Legs Jr. and for her experiments (got me into this business), me (obviously), and the lot of you for keeping the game alive. Thanks.

    And if anyone wonders - the RC/RL versioning actually makes a lot of sense. Tracks like Wildland, Cliff Mountain, Cliffside Court, Frigid Peaks, Extreme G, RC Dream, SS Route Revolt, etc are definitely not RC tracks. See this track list for suggestions.


    Updated to make the smaller spider's hood cam more true to the description. The previous version is included.

    And edited for a typo.

    Updated the smaller spider's RL version's turning inertia, now it's more controllable.
