Monsters that spawn more monsters

Postby EvilGrins » Fri Jan 27, 2017 7:21 pm

When working out of CreatureFactories it's sometimes nice to be able to overwhelm players with more than they counted on, like in cases where they're using a limiter like MHMapAdjuster to prevent too many monsters spawning onto a map... which can be countered by a monster that makes more monsters.

I only know of a few:
Image
Arachnids: taken from Unreal2, large red-spiders that create legions of tiny yellow clawed ones.

Image
Spinners: the largest of which throws & lays eggs that hatch into more spiders.

Image
Zombis: comes in 19 different classes, 1 of which is the MotherZombi that can create tons of normal ones.

Does anyone know of any other monsters that spawn monsters?

Those Zombies look like an interesting player model.
What's the exact name of them?

Literally called Zombi, from the zombi.u file.

There's teleporting zombis, fast zombis, zombis that shoot gibs at you, flying zombis, etc.

Their form is taken from that Unreal1 bald player model with the metal foot... forget his name.

GiantGasbags can, yes. They spawn more Gasbags.

Along the same lines, BombBags spawn Warlords:

When playing EXU2-BI04-SoulStorage I saw some demon sliths and demon queens that spawn many demon pupaes when you kill them.
I don't know if they exists in the map or were added by a mutator.

I sometimes use "Queen.ScreamEvent" or "Titan.StompEvent" for triggering a retriggerable CreatureFactory that spawns other ScriptedSpawns like Pupaes or Spiders. (The first version of SBRetriggerableCreatureFactory had no upper limit - what a "fun" having hundreds of pupaes around the Queen... ^^)

That zombi pack is possibly the worst zombie mod ever made.
No animations, they just drift along or float in the air, and some shoot at you from big distances.
The only thing about them that is zombie, is the skin.

Asgards Dinosaur pack, and the ported Postal animals have a few breeders, though I have not witnessed it.

Lots of early monsters kinda sucked, but as far as the variety of zombis... it makes up for how lousy the monsters look.
