As the title says this is an Anti-Spider texture pack that makes the 4 types of spiders in game into purple orbs.
This texture pack is made for 1.4 and will work with the latest version.
Here is the download Anti-Spider Texture Pack
How to install
1. Download the zip from the download link above (make sure you download the zip and not the files in side the zip, click on the download button on the top right to get the zip)
2. Open up Terraria.
3. Once loaded go into the texture pack menu.
4. Click Open Folder and put the zip into the folder.
5. Once the zip is in the folder you should see Anti-Spider pack by MikeyHor on the left.
6. Click the red button with the arrow pointing right.
7. Once clicked the pack will be enabled.
8. Now all spiders will we turned into purple orbs.

UPDATE
Ive updated the pack so the textures are now purple orbs from some random sprite in the game files.
Fixed the jungle creeper bug
Make sure the zip is called Anti-Spider Pack V2.zip, content.zip is the old version
If you couldnt access the download check now

Any plans to make the spiders into some other enemy type? Don't suppose you were, but it would take this pack to the next level imho.

Anything a little more lifelike replacing the spiders -- even slimes that look like they're traversing walls could look pretty nice depending on how you position and animate them.

And if not, I'm sure plenty of people still appreciate this. :)

I could do that but how the textures are laid out and work they have to be the exact size or smaller and i cant add extra frames of animation without making a mod (with my current understanding of how texture packs work) how the animation works is that the texture file has the different frames of animation top to bottom and the game takes that section for that frame of animation. So adding more i need to ad code for the game to use those frames (i think i dont know the games inner coding but thats what i can guess from the texture files ive seen)
I will update it and change how they look at some point but it will probaly be taken from anouther file from the game

You'd have to position the slime sprites in the format the spider sprites are laid out -- no modding/coding is needed. It may be challenge to get it to look good, but it's possible.

If you're interested in doing something like this, I can help you out if you'd like. If not, no worries -- it's your thing. Just pitching an idea. :)

i might try it but it depends on the sprite size of a slime

Hey man, so I wanna make my texture pack but im not sure how. Right now all the tutorials online are extremely old and I was wondering if u could explain to me how to do it. I understand how to change the textures and stuff, ill probably use paint.net to do that, but what do you do once you have all your images/textures?

I made an account here just to thank you my dude.

I was getting tired of yeeting the spider biomes in map editors, avoiding crimson worlds as if they were the plague and just not enjoying the game as I should

Again, thanks for the mod you have no idea how great this is for me
