spawning[edit source]

The article says that spiders spawn in a 3x3x2 blocks space. I don't believe this is true. I think they spawn in a 2x2x1 block space. -- 17:33, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Climbing[edit source]

It says that spiders were given the ability to climb in Beta 1.2, but that's wrong. I know that it was after the Nether was added but before leaf decay was re-introduced, so it must have been Alpha 1.2.1 or Alpha 1.2.2. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 21:37, October 27, 2016‎ (UTC).

Try using the launcher to open some of those old versions, view some spiders and see what they do in some Alpha versions and some Beta versions, and see if it's right? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 01:52, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
Looking through page history, it looks like this edit was made the day Beta 1.2 was released, and it's the first time spider-climbing is mentioned.
Also it made a big splash on the Spider talk page that day, starting with this entry.
Also Leaves#History indicates they re-removed leaf decay in Alpha 1.2.3_01 (it was the same day it was re-introduced), and re-re-introduced leaf decay in Beta 1.0. Perhaps you're remembering it being around the same time they reintroduced leaf decay, except that the reintroduction you remember was maybe actually the one in Beta 1.0? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 04:26, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
