Just to make you realize: this topic is 5 years old.
During this time, some skin mods have been created, featuring some female skins. Check out this one for example: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9100

Anyway the issue is still relevant because this doesn't exist in Minetest Game for now.

And about the skin you made, it looks pretty well ;-)
Just realize how bored we would be if the world was perfect.

Once you have attached the file right click on the file name, copy the link location and put it between the image tag

Ever heard of VRChat? Yeah. This wouldn't end well.

A bit feminist. And the skin you've made doesn't look female. It looks like a men with long hair...

A P2P system for player skins is an interesting idea too, though I would like to restrict the skin resolution as well as file size to discourage the un-checked use of inappropriate/offensive images.

What about this?
Your forum account is associated with a skin file and you can login to the forum in the Minetest Main Menu.
If you join a Server and you previously logged in, other players will see your right skin.
Ingame you can distinuish forum-verified players from normal players with their green name plate

The problem with this is that trolls could make hundreds or even thousands of accounts using a bot and then upload large-sized images to take up all the space on the servers the skins would be hosted on.

Although a custom skins COULD BE CLIENT SIDE, say: custom_skin.png in client folder, you could have a de-centralised skin system.

Yes, client skins would be great.


Agreed. ~/.minetest/client/character.png@client being uploaded to ~/.minetest/worlds/world/players/<name>.png@server makes the most sense of any solution I can think of, although some form of file size restriction would have to be implemented to prevent someone from doing something insane, like downloading the hubble deep field and crashing the server with a 2 GB skin.

EDIT: To protect disk space, the amount of skins an IP address is allowed to upload within a certain time period could be limited, and hashes could also be used to detect duplicate skins and save storage space.

Extex' female skin looks pretty nice. We can use more of these. Most female skins are still of a poor quality. Hope this skin of Extex gets added to at least one of the skin mods.
A list of my mods can be found here.
