I never noticed it until today. My new skin looked great until I saw that. Does anybody know why it's like that?
(I play on 1.8.9 btw)
1.8.9 is the best
How do you mean?
I presume that by 3X4 you mean the one, that I believe came with 1.8, with the extra layer for clothes?
As far as I can see the Steve template looks just like the older template except for the added layers at the bottom along with the extra areas for making the left arm and leg different from the right.
And the Alex one just has narrower arms.
(Just in case you're talking about the width of the arms you need to use the proper template for your character and you can switch between wide and narrow arms on the Minecraft profile page)
