Hi guys i was kind of so i thought to make skins for amours.
Making skins for Armour mean that u wont have to follow the same iron,gold,diamond texture.
Player install skins to look good but when they wear armour it is the same as old.
So i made skins for armour which will do the same resistance but the texture will be different.
You can have 3,4 skins with 3,4 armour and you can also mix it.
And it will also work with modes if the mod has its own amours.
I have tried of Am2, you can change the texture of armour in it.
And I think it will work with others also.
1: Goto your version folder in minecraft.
2: Open your version folder like 1.6.4.
3: Open the .jar file with any rar program like Winrar.
4: Navigate to assets\minecraft\textures\models\armor.
5: Choose which armour do you want to change and save it to a safe place. Note: Both files layer_1.png + layer_2.png.
6: Download the Skin.
7: Extract the download anywhere.
7: Rename the "layer_1.png" file to "your armour type_layer_1.png" like diamond_layer_1.png
8: Rename the "layer_2.png" file to "your armour type_layer_2.png" like diamond_layer_2.png
10: Delete the old file and paste it in the folder.(Replace the files )
11: Close the folder and if you have done it correctly it will work.
Note: The .jar file is to be opened not extracted.
Note: The icons of the armour wont change.
Note: It very much same for the mods also.
Note: Some mods may or may not have armour folder inside model folder, the armours skin can be in model folder.
Note: The real thing is to replace the file and it should have the same name the old one had.Specially for mods.
