This simple mod replaces your mabari hound with the corrupted spider (the creepy purple one), poisonous spider (the badass red-and-black one), or the monstrous spider (the tiny one), including models and animations.
He will retain the name you gave him before installing this mod, but unfortunately he will still bark. if someone can mod him to make spider noises, feel free to do so, just credit me, will ya:) Due to the spider model not having a 'sitting' animation, during the moments your spider pet's supposed to be sitting, he will rear up and extend his legs in a manner totally not freaky at all :)
To install this mod:
-Extract the .rar file WinRar
-Choose ONE of the .erf you want and place it in 'DocumentsBioWareDragon Age 2packagescoreoverride'.
Delete above file.
