Do you love Minecraft's default animations? Are you obsessed with the way the Minecraft player looks and acts? Do you wish Minecraft's player would forever look the same way? Well if you do, then this isn't the mod for you!
After countless hours of working (it wasn't that long), Professor HippoMaster now introduces to you the Animated Player Mod! This mod completely replaces and reanimates the player model by adding more joints and better animations. Also, it's completely client-based, which means it works for servers too (just don't install it into the server)!
Now with rounded curves!
Currently this mod replaces animations for walking, running, swimming, jumping, sneaking, flying, riding, bow-aiming, blocking, climbing, hitting, eating, and drinking!
The player now has his own face! It has the following features that can be configured. Check out the custom textures section for more information on configuring. This features:
Moving eyes depending on where the player is looking.
Opening mouth when the player is panting.
Eyebrows that become sad when hungry and confident/angry when aggressive!
Hats now render each pixel individually to make it look better! This can be toggled in the config file.
Check out this website for a few more!
Check out DalekSlayer's Skin Library for animated-player-supported skins!
Feel free to contribute by writing on his page as well, and remember to thank him!
Your own textures work with the mod too! Just color in the right areas specified below, then upload your texture to minecraft.net! Also, make sure not to use pitch black or pure white as your colors, or else they may be ignored. However, if you want to change your offline player look, check out the features inside the configuration file in .minecraft/config/AnimatedPlayer.cfg.
Color in the Eye Overlay 1 to replace the skin at Eye Replacement 1 with animated eyes.
Color in the Eye Overlay 2 to replace the skin at Eye Replacement 2with animated eyes.
Color in the Eye Overlay 3 to replace the skin at Eye Replacement 3with animated eyes.
(AKA you can make 2x2 eyes or 2x3 eyes)
Color in the Eyebrows to give the player animated eyebrows above the eyes.
Color in the Mouth to give the player an animated mouth and teeth.
