Ehhh..sure, why not? Only if its a ***** to tame them though. Otherwise it would be to easy and I wold have an army of millions before the next minecraft week. Maybe you have to feed them soul sand, obsidian, or maybe a bucket of lava? Other wise it would be to easy :sleep.gif:

Hello Peoples. I started Modding, and I decided I would make this. I am busy with my Dragon Mod, but this should not be too hard. I will have it done by next Week. Check out Spider Riding! for details regarding my progress.
Didn't even see this post! Sorry about that. Thanks a TON for making a mod! I'll check it out as soon as I can get on Minecraft!
Cool idea, since this seems to be a spider/web based idea, I think you should suggest Notch add it in the next Halloween update, I actually have a few ideas of my own I'd like to show to Notch for the Halloween update, like the Alternator (new mob), Smoke Machine, Vampire Bats (new mob), and Stalactites/Stalagmites, perhaps we could work together and create some mods to show to Notch?
A few things: four string for one patrol area is a lot. Maybe you can get 4-8 from the recipe? Can you get string from them? And what do you mean by "cave mushrooms" and "overworld" mushrooms? I wasn't aware there was much of a distinction.
he means the red or brown mushrooms. brown were cave, but mojang made it easier to find both.

You can't make metre cubed pieces of rock get jiggy with each other, that's just WRONG.
i think this: you approach the spider during the day and feed it 5 red mushrooms and 5 brown mushroms, its eyes change to blue and it follows you to make it wander u feed it a fish and feed it another raw fish to make it follow u again to ride it you right click it with a bare hand, it has 25 hearts instead of 10 and feeding it one mushroom(any type) heals 10 hearts, the spider always has its total heart number above its head.
Riding spiders? Hell no! Way too overpowered, and it doesn't really make that much sense. I mean, the spiders are one of the 4 main bad guys, as opposed to the 4 main peaceful mobs. We don't need to tame them, we need to fight them. That's the point.
However, I think you may have the glimmerings of a good idea with the web tile idea. You craft and place it and, instead of your idea with the tame spider guards, it instead acts as a spider lure. Within a 4 or 5 block radius of the tile, the spiders turn entirely hostile; attacking every mob that enters their territory, including other hostile mobs and other spiders. The web tile also cause the spider that is currently controlling it to regenerate health. This would be a nice little gimmick; hide one in a corner and raiding players will really regret it...
I spent this whole suggestion just lauhging my ass off.
They arn't an entity so it is essentially impossible. Dont give me the whole "ooooo waaaaa bwut uuu cwan r1d3 the p1gz hurr durr" because you don't. You ride the saddle. Because it is an entity.
So, weve already established it is impossible. Lets look at other realms of your idiocity OP.
WHY? What does it add?
Is it fun? NO
Does notch have better things to be doing? YES YES YES YES YES
So I actually hope your troling with this thread.
Wow. I have no idea what you're so worked up about.
"They arn't an entity so it is essentially impossible... You ride the saddle. Because it is an entity."
Never in my post did I say we could ride pigs without saddles, or anything like that. The question I put in the beginning was more of a starting point for discussion. I understand that you ride the saddle, but it should be possible that you can put a saddle on a tamed spider. How is this impossible? It should be relatively easy to create, and in fact, someone has already made a mod for it!
"WHY? What does it add?"
It adds another mode of transportation, as well as an effective means of combat. Plus, they could also be used as guards.
"Is it fun? NO."
Ummm, what? How can riding a giant spider NOT be fun? Unless you're extremely arachnaphobic, I think everyone would love to ride a spider.
"Does Notch have better things to be doing? YES YES YES YES YES."
This may be true. However, he's not the only one programming the game anymore, plus a modder has already done a lot of the work. I agree that there are other things Notch could be working on, but I doubt the things you have in mind are "better" for everyone. Just because you don't like this idea doesn't mean it's not a good one.
"So I actually hope your troling with this thread."
No, this is a legitimate suggestion that I think would work really well and that a lot of players (besides you, apparently) would enjoy. This is nowhere near being a troll thread. Of course, you may be the one who's trolling, and in responding to this (and if you're intentionally trolling), I would have let you win. If not, well, I hope that my explanations make sense to you.
I do realize with the adition of wolves, I'll have to edit the original post to define the difference between them.

But we can ride pigs. If we can ride spiders, then why can't Skeletons ride Pigs?
Er... because pigs only spawn in the day and a skeleton riding a pig would be pointless (albeit funny)? I'm not sure.
So many good ideas! It would be better to have a rare spider like a queen spider or something that you would have to beat down. when you kill it it drops special spider eggs you can hatch. That way it adds a boss, a domesticated spider you can ride, and it gives you something you have to take care of.
