Cute Panda Skin

Let me start out by stating a well-known fact: pandas are adorable.  This cute panda skin by XPikaFacex is legendary in terms of cuteness.  It does not transform the user into a panda, but rather a panda-suit-wearing girl:

From the looks of it, the suit features a shoulderless longsleeve shirt, a sort of French-maid skirt, knee-high black boots with panda paws on the bottom, and of course a hat complete with Panda eyes and ears.  This skin is a bit washed out with white, so some of the shading is lost, but in the areas where it is shaded it is done quite well.  All things considered, this is a fantastic skin – and a universal one at that, so if you are stuck in the stone ages of 1.6.4 due to your favorite mods not updating, you are in luck!

 

Installing the Skin

 

For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on Minecraft.net.  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.

 

For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:

 

  1. Download the skin’s .png file;

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.

 

Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.
