with the lava source block being far enough from the ladder that only a small sliver of lava stays there.
I don't know how well it would work with spiders, though and it may need a bit of redesigning for that.
What you discribe is a lava trap. I know what a lava trap is. But I don't want to build a lava trap. I want to use a fire trap. Read my last post.

There are different kinds of mods:
Some are only specially designed maps. These are technically not mods but save games.
There are texture packs, which do nothing else than change the looks of the blocks. Some are really good. I also put character skins in this class.
The real mods influence the gameplay by introduceing new items or new rules. A good example is the PRG-mod we had installed on the server. You can use as many of the gameplay mods as you want but you must watch carefully how they interact with each other.
