how do you use it?
can you only select premade skins or can you choose your head, torso, legs, arms and feet?

anyway: +1

Call me DS or DS-minetest.
I am German, so you don't have to pm me English if you are also German.

Nice mod.

Can your read this?

Idea: being able to chose what style of face you want, e.g. Sam style, this style, MC style, etc.

This looks interesting.
Maybe you could open it up a bit. An api for other mods would be nice, so that they can extend the options.

The concept is good (the code too), but the interface is quite improvable.
What we expect from a character creator is a visual preview in real-time with the least text as possible.

You could have e.g. a character in front face on the right, and something compact like that on the left :

Hairs
[<] brown [>]

Eyes
[<] blue [>]

Skin
[<] tanned [>]

etc.

[<] [>] are arrow-buttons that the user can click for tuning his appearance.


Second and last point : you should not have so much textures. Instead, make a bunch of generic white-ish textures and use this method for colorize them.

Good luck.

It's currently possible.
You can add skin data to character_creator table.

Ah good to know. Thanks.

Rui wrote:@jp
Dropdown menu or arrow-buttons...
I can't decide which to use...
I think dropdown menu is good visibility than arrow-buttons.

Uhm well I like the buttons idea. I think it's more intuitive because there is less text reading involved. Just hit a button and check the result in the preview (there was a preview, wasn't it).

I still need more variety for my mobf_trader mobs. NPCs in general might profit from customizable skins. It would be great if the individual texture parts could be shared between mods.

Nice!! Another cool mod that would be nice to have by default.

While this is less flexible than uploading a completely custom skin, I think it has several advantages: it will be easier on the bandwidth, the characters will all look more consistent and harder to confuse with something else, and if we add enough variety of hairstyles and accessories I don't think anyone would miss having a completely custom skin.

Plus the player skin could be randomised by default (maybe using the player name as seed?), so every player would look different from the ground up, even if they don't care/know about customising their character.

Sounds like a very good idea!

I like it too! But would a single male/female option clean it up a bit?
