[Mod] In-game skin switching [skins]

by Zeg9 » Post

Image
This adds a menu in the inventory that allows to switch player textures in-game.
You can use 3D skins (from 0.4.4 and higher) or 2D skins (from earlier versions)

Comes with 30 3D skins and 12 2D skins, feel free to submit your own, providing the license.
Depends on default ! else 3d players won't work correctly.
Depends also on Inventory++ (recommended), inventory_plus or mod menu
If you choose inventory++ or inventory_plus, the craft guide will be inside the inventory, else it will be in the mod menu (/m)
License code is WTFPL
See the README from the mod for individual textures licenses.

Thanks to all who helped with this !
New textures are still welcome huh ;)

http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3590 is a platform for sync-ing textures.

If you give me a http based API, i can do it for you

There is no need for license information.

Your mod would not contain the textures, it will download each player's individual texture and use that.

I may make a version for your repo, then... Can you give me the archive name to download all skins ?
Also, I'm not sure lua can make http requests...

No, it can not in Minetest. I need to get someone to write a program to do so

This is really nice! I have some users using old 2D skins, so I couldn't upgrade to the 3D version, and had to disable 3D players. This will let 2D people keep their skins while allowing others to use 3D skins. Thanks!

Not directly, but you can take a look at my IRC mod for some ideas. I may be able to help with this. It does not use a separate program per-se. Lua allows loading native libraries, and luasocket (an extension library for Lua) has modules to use HTTP and FTP protocols.

I'm on #minetest most of the time, so catch me.

It would be nice for this to become a solid feature, and for players to choose their skin in the client, which will be available on all servers.

Is suggesting the Offtopic Section and getting it added an achievement? I guess it is!

It needs the textures to be on the server, but you may ask the admin for that...
And if you have textures under WTFPL, please post them here so I can include them in the mod :D

I think unified inventory doesn't have an API to register more tabs yet...
But ask RealBadAngel about that.

Ok, I see it's WTFPL
Thanks ! They will be added to next update.

Please give a link, and license
I'd enjoy to add them too.

Now the mod has enough 3d skins, anyone has 2d skins to submit ? :D
