Caterpillar System
Version 2.0
by Woratana
Release Date: 02/03/2009


Introduction
It's just that one day I feel like scripting caterpillar system. I've never done it before, and it would teach me something.

So I tried, and here is the result.

It's probably need more work to make it perfect. tongue.gif Because I think my algorithm so far is not the best one.
Please let me know if you find any bugs. ^^/

Enjoy~^^
