spore and sperm. Amazingly similar, all considering.
So are you going to have the whole model rotate to give it that tail-turning effect?
Ow--here's a reply I missed. Sorry about that.
No--the tail will be the particle effect and what rotates.
I made a variant of the mothership with a forward facing drill but try as I might, I can't like it as much as my original design. Since it will probably never be used, here's a rough view of it.
In-game, it would have actually embedded the rotating drill into the planet mesh--up to where the leg tips end. A cloud of smoke and derbis would have shout out from the impact point. Would have been fun.
