Tribal Bone Hunter Skin

Tired of punching trees in a tuxedo or masquerading as a superhero while collecting dirt?  Get back to your basic primal nature with this Tribal Bones Hunter skin by user Animal_Juice.

This original skin features a leaf-clad tribesman with a fearsome mask and various markings on his body.  Animal_Juice is an experienced skinner, and every ounce of skill from past skins is evident in the quality of this one.

 

Only one part of this skin stands out to me as something I would change: the shading on the front of the leaf garment.  The way it is shaded gives the illusion that it folds in towards the bottom and center.  This is a minor detail though; overall, the shading, detail, and use of layering makes this a great original skin.

 

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.
