  • CoolGuy

    this helped me make an awesome skin, thanks

  • Imitatio

    Wow, this is awesome, I love it!

  • http://freeminecraftskins.com David

    This is a really fantastic tool. I look forward to seeing what you do with it, lots of potential here!

  • WAFFLEpr0xy

    Yes!!! Epic in every way.

  • AbRaX

    Wow Man its pretty cool i love the motion of how u made the editor online and not download Good to keep great stuff like this editor from getting (edited) xD

    Is it possible to bundle certain parts that I have created and already uploaded to the site together, so that other people can choose from parts in the specific package by sending them a URL? Think of it like the regular skin creator on the main page of this website, but with parts that I specified before hand (with a specific URL to THAT skin editor with my pre-made items). I am the Admin and official skin maker for a very popular and successful server (Stix City), and I think that this tool would be extremely beneficial and is what I have been searching for.

    Please respond, and thank you for making my job that much easier!

    • http://twitter.com/HandOfNephthys Season Ariens-Cyr

      Also, I might be getting ahead of myself here, but is it possible to add that prepicked skin pack, complete with the skin editor, as a widget for another webpage? That would make this tool even MORE useful, allowing servers to have an easier way to send allow their players to pick and chose their own skin.

      Just a suggestion.

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      i’m looking into that. i also made your parts public, for now just keep on using good tags. i’m uncertain about your base though, maybe upload another version without the face and hair, just a suggestion. i will make the author and tagsearch public again so people without account who want only parts of a specific author or tag can use that.

      a package of the editor for other sites as a widget could happen. but not very soon

  • voidhuntress

    Is there any chance you could offer an alternate view for the skin generator which gives a list instead of just the tiny thumbnails, like the Skinparts link at the bottom?

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      alternative listing modes are on the to-do-list already. but that won’t come too soon

  • Kangaroocory

    I’m new here i’m just wondering how i put a whole skin up, because i’m trying to use the Son Goku skin and its not working. Tutorial please?

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      you seem to have found out. but making the ui for your own files and the upload easier to understand is one of the things i want to change in the next version

  • Terru5

    Ability to delete uploads that are mistakes.

    • mariofanatic123

      Well how do you upload in the first place?

  • Gravity Cat Amused

    Read the name 😀

  • Adkg12


  • Ray313(Adkg12)

    I hope the next version comes soon!If the new version comes out,make it easier for other people to make a Skin,i made two already:Stuff by Adkg12 or Ray313:Hunter(1) and Hunter(2),not base,a full skin!

  • Jay_walls

    What I would like is to have some sort of personal generator where you can put your own and choose specific parts that you like and put then in your own personal builder. So you can make the characters you like with your own easy to find parts.

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      great idea

  • Jay_walls

    Sorry 4 double post.
    Yes I knowyou can already put your own up but you might want to put your own dodgy, unfinished skins in your own place.

  • Jay_walls

    Almost like a little wardrobe

  • Craziej2k

    Good idea for a site, the only problem is that some of the content doesn’t match up with each other (face parts & hair) You should have a preset place for them, for example the pupils for the eyes should to be in the same spot on all of the faces

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      while that would make combination easier it would restrict part-makers in their creativity to a point where everything looks the same

    I’ve made a skin editor and included some integration with your site
    I tried to give the right credits, linking back to your site, showing author names, etc
    I hope you agree with the idea.

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      well of course i’m not a fan of your site hotlinking pics and sucking away my bandwidth (well it’s not that much, but you get my point 🙂 ).
      i’d rather see you rehost the archive and keeping credits or linking back. This way we make sure to save the skinparts archive for future generations if this server ever goes down without notice

  • SGWr

    I made a skin, uploaded it, didnt see that I could create account, made exact same skin on this account, and it sais someone already made this skin… Duh, I just made it 2 to 3 minutes prior.

    How do I delete files which I’ve uploaded?

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      you can send me a message what you want to be deleted, i won’t give normal users permission to delete any posts in the database. If you keep on uploading good parts there’s a chance i promote you to be an author instead of just a contributor.

  • Nefertititownes

    Do you download the skins? I’m new here please forgive me.

    Please add a note about not submitting mixed skins from here as their own work, or if they do to add a list of creditors for the parts of the skin. Honestly you have no clue the number of my skins i have seen people trying to take credit for. lol

    ps. this is hadowkai by the way.

    • http://minecraft.decx.org decx

      opening up the “complete skins” category was a credit-disaster waiting to happen.

      don’t worry i’ll change it back to be private again when i get around to add hats,pants and shirts to the interface

      proceed to choose parts and make your skin,
      when you’re done, click on the “get skin” button under the skin layers, then right click the image and save it as a png file to your computer. now login to your account on minecraft.net and go to profile. there you can upload your downloaded file which will then be bound to your minecraft account. 
      if you are a cheap fuck and have a pirated minecraft you can replace the char.png in the mob directory in minecraft.jar, you can open that with 7zip, winrar or similar programs

  • Jw0912

    How can download my skin, if the button “get skin” doesn’t appear.
    Because after dowloading the skin by right clicking using “download picture”, and change the codec to PNG. Also won’t help.(I checked my webGL plugin on safari, and everything just works fine, except the 3D view of your current chosen skin)

  • 5k

    The “get skin” button dose not appear below the skin layers. it says there is some trouble with webgl; that my bowser can support it but has been disabled or something, which is probably related. I don’t know how †ø go about fixing it. please post a detailed comment because i’m tired of looking at steve.
