HD Player Skins Mod – Ever wanted an HD skin to complement your HD texture pack? Well now you can thanks to this mod!
The HD Player Skins Mod is a mod for Minecraft that allows you to switch your player skin with a high definition texture pack. Currently, the available sizes are 128×64, 256×128, 512×256, 1024×768. This mod can now allow you to have a full high definition experience in Minecraft if you combine it with an HD texture pack. The only downside to this mod is that it hasn’t gained much traction yet, but once it does, expect to have much more skins available to you. In the meantime though, you can either create your own skin, or you can download skins from this repository.
Other than the lack of skins, this mod is solid! It does like it says. In order to use this mod, you will have to install the mod first or course, but after that, you will have to register to this site. Your username will have to be the same as your Minecraft username (same capitals and everything). Otherwise, it will not work. After that, just upload the skin you desire and it should show up in game.
The other downside to this mod is that other people can’t see your HD skin unless they have this mod installed too. Otherwise, all they will see is your regular Minecraft skin. Now for some screenshots of the mod.
Here's a video of the HD Player Skins Mod in action.
