should integrate the functionality into mirrors and wardrobes that way you can goto the bed room click the dresser or mirror and change your appearance.

Hello,

I just installed the mod (on minetest 0.4.14 server) and it seems that the character changes are not persistent between game sessions.
Is this a bug?

EDIT: to be more precise, it's the minetest-server restart that reset the characters to their default look.

The issue was in my systemd service file, it didn't shutdown minetest properly, but killed it instead. So the saving routine wasn't executed, being in register_on_shutdown.

The fix is to send the minetest instance a SIGINT signal, that shuts it down properly before any killing of the remaining process.

On the other side, any outage of the machine will trigger this "bug", so I also propose to save the data at every skin change: https://github.com/minetest-mods/charac ... tor/pull/3

This is definitely the easiest way to add customization of skins to any game - I noticed in the TODO list a preview - why not just flip the player's viewpoint (like pressing f7) when they enter the formspec? I see your screenshots show you did that to take the screenshot - makes sense to implement it that way.

You could also add a 'Full skin' option, allowing for easy importation of existing skins (those that cover the whole mesh, rather than in parts).

Been a long time since I've logged in. Experienced a crash today (nil value index) when trying to use character_creator on minetest 0.4.15. Found the problem. Fixed it. Pull request here: https://github.com/Rui-Minetest/_charac ... tor/pull/4

you can download it here, before it is merged into main repo

(Technical details: replaced 3d_armor calls with ones to multiskin instead)

At the first thanks for the great Mod!, My kids loves them!

Two questions
1: Can you please implement a 2D-"Preview" of the generated skins? I think it should be possible in the same way as the skins self, but with the front site only. The preview can be used in 3d_armor preview and/or or in any inventory.

2: Currently the character_creator conflicts with any other skins mod. If both enabled, the inventory show preview of the skins-skin, but the applied skin is from character_creator. Any concept to solve it? It will be nice to have both ways at the same time, use predefined skins or create own character. My idea is: In case a skins mod is active, add a dummy skin "character_creator" to skins.list[] and apply the character_creator overrides only if the dummy skin is selected. If the character_creator is called, select the dummy skin automatically.
For beter compatibility to other mods that knows only the "skins, there should be a default character_creator.png and character_creator_preview.png in textures folder.

Will have to try this one out. Looks like a Trope codifier. First one I've seen in a mod for Minetest. I'd choose this over having to rely on the skinsdb mods for ease of implementation.
Western RPGs vs Eastern RPGs. Western RPGs had this more. Eastern RPGs, you were stuck with the way that characters looked e.g. that you played in the Final Fantasy Series. I digress.

The call-stack does not match the current git versions. Do you use skinsdb? Or 3d_armor and character_creator only?
Please update the mentioned mods (if installed) to the latest git version

I have the same problem even though I run latest master branches of skinsdb, 3darmor and character_creator. I tried to run only these three mods on the server to make sure nothing else causes the conflict. I've posted an issue on a github page.

Oooohhh it looks great.

Do any of you think it would be a good idea to put the mod in the CitySim server?
Maybe not because they have clothes there which you make with a loom.
And this mod would make the loom mod useless.
But people can still use the loom for police suits, military suits, prisioner suits etc.

So would it be a good idea?

Thank you for wasting 20 sec of ur time reading this message

LATER EDIT: Nevermind. Found it. :)

Hi!

Sorry for this extremely noob question, I am just trying to help my young daughter and don't actually play the game.

So, once the mod is activated, how does one exactly proceed to activate the UI for modifying the skin? Like, how do you get to the "place" from the screenshot?

I am fairly confident the mod is correctly enabled. I don't get any errors at startup. And the initial skin of the character is different from the one I see when I disable the mod (I've set up a different default skin for my daughter by overwriting character.png, which is used when the mod is disabled). But from this point on, I'm lost.

TIA

First press F7 two times. Then type into the chat "/character_creator".

Are you sure you are using the latest version? It works fine for me with the latest version.

Please make sure to not use the latest stable release of this mod (Version 1.0) because it won't work with Minetest 5.

Instead, please use the latest master/dev version of this mod.
