How exactly could I make a spiderling bright neon yellow for a special map?

Do you want to alter its skin or its FX?

It's up to you. Skin is actually what the spider looks like. FX is a special effect. Lemme research this...

It would be easier to do FX, as if you reskin, you'd have to add an extra file. FX is hard to learn, but it's the best skill to have. The only drawback is that the spiders won't be yellow, but they'd have a yellow effect.

hear comes the idiot to correct ancalagon again lol jks...

but tbh a reskin for 1 map is easier than a yellow fx and also the yellow fx doesnt cover the fact that the spider isnt yellow instead it would hav yellow crap hoverin around it

That's exactly what I said. I don't really understand what JBV did to make the golden spiders in WoR, but I don't know. Reskin would be easier, I guess.

Next, edit it to make it yellow looking. I'd recommend colorizing.
