After much research, I present a set of templates for skinning mobs. I was doing research on these for creating papercraft generators.  I realized that these would be helpful making skins for texture packs.  I have the same information in PHP files too, if anybody wants them.

Since I have not updated some of the older mobs, here is my test texture pack with all of the mobs and most of the items in the items directory as PDN files.  I think some of the skins are only partially showing (like not all cubes of the golem are visible because I was checking on a couple of stray sections that the skin file has, but are not used.)  At least that has all of the files in one nice zip file.

  • Pigman, Pig zombie and Zombie all follow the standard character template.
  • Ghast_fire is just the ghast template when the ghast is firing.
  • Spider_eyes is an overlay onto the spider template when spiders are hostile.  It glows when spiders are hostile.  It is also applied to the cave spiders.
  • Saddle is just the pig template the saddle surrounds the entire pig. Alas, including a set of reigns will not help control them. Posted Image
  • Enderman_eyes is same format as Enderman template.  Anything that is not black will glow (even if it is transparent, such as the issue I saw with a file that had a white transparent background.)
  • Villager skins are in the villager folder with different professions as file names.

For those looking to change the armor in their texture packs, the armor skin basics are covered by the various character templates.  I recommend SkinEdit.  Or if you want a really fancy skin editor.Armor Research AlbumThe details are as follows:
  • The helmet is the head and hat sections of the template in the "1" files.
  • The tunic is the torso and arm sections of the "1" files.
  • The pants are the leg and torso sections of the "2" files.
  • The boots are the leg section of the "1" files.

Notes:
  • The helmet box is slightly larger than the hat box on the character.
  • The helmet's hat box is slightly larger than that, it surrounds the normal helmet box.
  • The tunic's torso and arm boxes are slightly larger than the body torso and arm boxes.
  • The boots' boxes are slightly larger than the leg boxes

I made my own texture pack for testing parts of these templates, so when I play for research I have techno-colored mods wandering around. Posted ImageAaron "RobotHacker" Shawhttp://papercraft.robhack.com/

Charlotte and Squid added to original post.

I do not have the companion mod installed so Charlotte is not 100% verified, but it looked like they followed the same general format as the other skins.  The area that would be for the end/bottom of the pony tail was blank, probably to make it see through on the model.  Some parts on the chicken are the same way.

This will be a great help.

One thing you might want to add: put a dot in the bottom right hand corner to indicate which way around that area of the template will be in game.

Cheers.
