I was skeptic going into this one, the Spider is a funky design. With some planning and luck I pulled it off though, with minimal cosmetic changes too Was good times during the stream too, thanks to everyone who showed up.
Spider, wow little obscure there no? I still remember having on Punt kick a atlas in the head, *sigh* goods times that, good times. Ah, anyway it's nice wish the people doing the lost tech updates stuck as close to the originals as you have *shrugs* oh, well, probably break a settlement anyway.
well... Endo steel chassis, ferrofiberous armor (more than it had originally), 4 medium pulse lasers linked to a targeting computer, XL-engine (with faster walk-run-jump) (Oh, I think I dropped it down 5 tons as well.)
and if I remember I stuck a streak 4-pack in there as well.
at one point I made a LAM version, but mostly Lams have been phased out because of the Harmony Gold problem
my mine pleasure was taking as close to the original design, making it tougher, usually faster, and give it more punch. I didn't often change the weight.
Like the Locust. I had the "Innersphere upgrade to clan tech" 20ton version, and then I had the Locust IIC 25 or 30 ton version redone closer to the original Locust layout.
