Remember the "You Are Minecraft" event back in 2012? I noticed some of the skins people built had extra accessories on them that would not have been possible on a regular skin. Some people even sculpted who their avatar represented, totally disregarding the normal player model. That is what Minecraft is about! Creativity! Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to realize your avatar as a custom model instead of the same six re-textured cuboids?
The Custom Players Models mod allows users to easily create and load their own player models made of voxels. Each voxel is the size of a cubic pixel from the default model. The mod comes with a program called "Body Shop" for editing these models. Currently there is no built in functionality for transferring models over a server, so for now friends must manually share their files. I hope to add this feature in the future. The mod and program are both buggy right now, but you can help improve them by reporting bugs.
---Creating a Model With "Body Shop"---
- Download Minecraft Forge for 1.7 (you can get it from files.minecraftforge.net under the 1.7 and use the installer for those using the vanilla launcher)
- Extract the jar from the download zip which is the mod file and put it in mods and optionally in 1.7.2 so it does not conflict with other instances of MinecraftForge
- Create your body in Body Shop and upload your patched skin!
