HD Player Skins Mod – Ever wanted an HD skin to complement your HD texture pack? Well now you can thanks to this mod!
Overview of 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.

- Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
- Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
- Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
- Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
- The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
- The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

- Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
- Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
- Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
- Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder. Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
