Anybody else having this problem? My new skin worked fine until I disabled the hat/jacket/sleeves/legs (in the new skin customization menu) to check if the layer underneath looked right, but when I re-enabled the top layers they showed up as transparent. I know they're there because there is an ugly edge all around the area - similar to when a block is highlighted - where the top layers are supposed to be.
I dont entirly understand this.
i do understand that you can add hats to skins now (like in the ps3 and xbox version) --> YAAY I CAN FINALLY ADD HORNS TO MY CHARACTER!!! (cause im a dragon lol)
but yeah can some1 explain it better for me please?
can you add stuff to your back? (like adding wings and a tail and such?)
No. You're not changing the shape of your character. It just lets you wear two skins at once. The only horns you can add would be the same as the existing "hat" field on skins pre-snapshot. The only difference now is you can add second layers to your entire skin, with any bits that are transparent showing the first layer beneath it.
The new skin system is awesome. Best change in a while. I already updated my skin with the new features. I could care less about the fill/copy things. Honestly, I wish they'd stop focusing on things to help build, and focus on the survival aspect.
I don't think Mojang realizes that some people play for the survival part, rather than the building part of the game. If I want a building toy, I'll buy legos. I don't need more building blocks I'm never going to use. More hostile mobs, or tools/weapons, more structures, more bosses, more to do in the nether, more to do in the end..now THOSE, I would love to see. Just..more reason to play the game itself, rather than build.
I really didn't got the new skin system. I want to do layers on my body, and I'm really don't know what to do. Can you post another picture of the new skin system, that I can know how to use it?
The original post has this image:
It's pretty simple. The top half of the image is the same base as the old skin. Head, Head 2(hat), Right Leg, Body, Right Arm. The bottom half, is the new parts. Right Leg 2, Body 2, Right Arm 2, Left Leg 2, Left Leg, Left Arm, Left Arm 2.
"Left Leg" and "Left Arm" are easy enough to figure out. Any of the one's with "2" are the extra parts. They work the same way the hat layer in the original skin base worked, the only difference being, you can do it for all the different body parts now.
My main issue is trying to figure out the arms/legs. I'm sure it's simple, but because I'm smart, I decided to just copy/paste the ones I already had made, and use that, but they were placed wrong, so I'm working on fixing that now.
