Miners need cool shoes!
One of the best things about Minecraft has to be the freedom it allows the player. There’s so much that you can personalize in the game that creative players have huge scope to use their imaginations throughout.
One of the most striking modifications players can make when playing Minecraft is to customize their own character or avatar.
Didn’t you say something about cool shoes?
The needcoolshoes.com mod website has a bunch of options for Minecraft enthusiasts, including various packs, iOS and ANDROID material, 3D print samples, wallpapers and skins that can alter the appearance of player’s characters.
How to import skins
The site has a very easy-to-use interface that allows players to create new skins effortlessly. It’s also possible to import existing skins in order to edit and personalize them. This is great for those who find starting from scratch a little daunting or just need a little inspiration.
All you have to do is click on the “import from computer” option and the new skin is good to edit. Once you’ve imported your skin, you can use the built in modifier to make changes to the design. Players can also import different skins from minecraft.net.
Generating a random skin
Needcoolshoes.com also has the option to generate a random skin. These can be great fun and often provide unique designs that can be used immediately or edited further by the player. Just like with the import option, the player can keep changing the design until they are satisfied with it.
How to create a brand new skin
Creating a new skin is the slowest and trickiest option but also the most rewarding one. The interface is extremely straightforward with six main buttons next to the editor’s drawing area.
You can select one of the following:
- Paint tool
- Rectangle tool
- Fill tool
Anyone who has ever used either Microsoft Paint or Photoshop will likely have no problem figuring things out. The paint tool gives the players a lot of freedom, allowing them to use different brush sizes and try various color settings.
The fill tool quickly fills out bigger portions of the template, allowing the players to finish their designs faster. The rectangle tool serves the same purpose, but it fills out rectangular areas of the player’s selection.
After clicking on the filter icon, the players get a chance to change various settings, including:
The sliders can be reverted, and there is a “flip skin and armor”, as well as a “make body transparent” button. They do exactly what you’d expect, switching your character’s skin with their armor and making the player’s design transparent.
When the players want to create a new design but need some inspiration, or they wish to modify an existing one, using the in-built search engine can be a huge help.
After typing the name of a skin into the box, the system instantly highlights it, allowing players to further edit the existing design.
During the process, players can rotate their creation in any direction by clicking on the small “rotate” button in the top right corner.
The system works great without lags and it’s easy to find any missed spots or errors. The website can be used without registration but if the player decides to sign up, they will have more options available to them.
It’s still possible to download any of the skins without registering, but sharing a new design with other players (through the site) is only possible after the player has signed up.
All in all, needcoolshoes.com is one of the best, if not the best online Minecraft skin editor around. Players only need an internet connection, a keyboard and a mouse to get started creating interesting, quirky, weird or beautiful designs for their Minecraft characters.
It is not as sophisticated as some other editing applications for Minecraft, but it is very quick and convenient to use. No wonder it is also one of the most popular editors around.
