Awesome! I knew you could do left/right appendages different now, but I didnt know you could turn overlays and capes on or off from within the game.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins: http://www.RisingColonies.com/

will the skins ever get an option to display the 2nd layer as solid blocks instead of floating and flat? many mods add this and it looks sooo much better to have your hair/hat look like its a solid real thing instead of a floaty flat ugly thing.

I hope this will help some people out. I learned the new skin system very early and still learned a thing or two.

Since I always made my own skins since I began playing, I was already pretty experienced with how to make the new style of skins.
Here's my current skin styles in 1.8:

Even though I already understood the new format, it's great for the other players who didn't know!

Anyway, it's pretty easy once you get hold of a template. My skin's got a jacket layer, I might make use of the left/right limbs at some point.
