Anyone can/thinks its possible to make a sand worm ala Dune?
It lifts the gorund a bit while moving, pops up once in a while to destroy stuff and release creeper?

Gets killed after you hit it enough while not undergound??

It's doable, but the hard part will be making it fun.

First, showing where it is.
Second, balancing. It's effectively an unblockable spore. That means either leaving weapons within the base (like missiles) or having some kind of intelligent targeting (lag).

Overall, a more interesting sort of threat is to attach a centipede of eggs to a blob, and possibly provide some kind of tunnels for it to run down, then tack on some graphics.

A narrative is a lightly-marked path to another reality.

you can show where it is by lifting the ground when it passes and setting it back down after? or probably on the minimap?

i was just thinking, maybe someone can come up with a fun way.. shrugs

That "someone" can be you. :D

Here is a link to the scripting pages. Ask either here on the forum or in Discord (more interaction) for help to get started. :)
