I am trying to change the skin for creepers in my game. I already made the skin but am trying to use it in game.
The end result I'm going for is for everybody on my server to see that skin on all the creepers. I'm not sure how possible that is.
I am using MC 1.10.2 and the associated Forge on my server.
I did attempt to test it locally first. I went to the 1.10.2 jar file, opened it in winrar, and went to assets/minecraft/textures/entity/creeper/ and swapped the creeper.png file. I saved the jar file. I then reopened the jar to make sure it saved and my creeper.png was still there.
However, whenever I open minecraft and click play, it seems like it redownloads the .jar and replaces the creeper.png file. The creepers in the game are unchanged. When I exit the game and reopen the jar, the creeper.png file has been changed back to the default creeper skin.
How do I get it to NOT change the .jar or creeper.png back to the defaults?
also, would it be possible to do this server side or are all skins only stored locally?
