Hello this mod is a big help.

But it is possible to make the skins persistent?
Everytime I log out and back in mi Avatar is displayed with the default Skin. I have to change the Skin anew so that the world can see me in this skin. In the inventory the skin is choosen but my avatar is not Displayed in it.

Thanks,
JPR

I think you should ask RealBadAngel to merge it with his Unified Inventory. Maybe make a pull request to it on GitHub

Okay, I found a "hacky" way to generate previews of the players.
I don't have a program to run *.sh files (yes, Windows user) and blender wasn't found.
So, I decided to grab those previews from the server too.

#EDIT START
I found a way to save space:
Do not save character_1 (default) skins, because it sets back itself to that skin if it doesn't exist.
#EDIT END

Moo-haha, new update script below --v

This seems to be a much-ignored mod. I see real potential here.

Agreed, it should be moved to release if the author has requested that.
I already added support for it in my armor mod.

Yes, I like this mod but it didn't seem as people use it. Therefore I didn't create a pull request yet.
I fixed some things in there and will create a pull request tomorrow.

Now that we have third person view this mod and the original skins (by Zeg9) will be useful even in singleplayer mode.
I think it will be used a lot more when 0.4.10 is released (or whatever way they version it)
I am curious as to what bugs you found, it seemed to work ok for me, though someone did report some issue with 3d_armor,
I was unable to reproduce it.

Well, it overwrote the "character.x" mesh while changing the texture of other players. Then I've found a thing to correct while saving the skins (see 2 posts of me above)

Not very. In mods like this, there isn't much to talk about while it is still in development. anyhow, there areen't any new changes to gripe about either. ;)

Looks good. I'll see if I can make it work on my server.

I made some changes and bugfixes

Check for existing skins:
- ignore missing numbers in skins ("character_44",,,, "character_48", "character_49")
- check for invalid skins

Previews:
- remove preview of backside (can not download from skins db)
- make "hacky" skin preview generation as default
- update updater, the update script

Other:
- remove most of the skins
- better meta saving/reading
- make it not saving default character
- remove checking for 2d-skins (should be easy to code self)

Changes made at: https://github.com/SmallJoker/minetest-u_skinsdb
Auto skin updater (written with .NET) as alternative available on PM-request.

Hi, I'm using this mod on my server(Lisacvuk and raven's server), and I have a problem. When player choose a skin, his texture becomes completly white. Its happening always, only way to fix it is to reconnect or place some armor. Any advise? Thanks.

Are you sure you are actually using this version? I do know that the above mentioned fork has this problem with 3d_armor

See: https://github.com/stujones11/minetest-3d_armor/issues/13

Try this.. It's my hybrid between uskins and older skins which doesn't suffer with this bug

Krock, I looked over the code and the cause is simply that someone removed the underscore that was between u_skins_set and the skin number. I just pushed a change to 3d_armor that fixes this ;-)
