Hello, modders and skin fanatics alike! After a very long time working on it, I'm happy to announce a brand new mod API that allows one to create their very own skins for their modded characters and items! You can find the mod on the Steam Workshop here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=835602689 WARNING: This mod is only to be used to create skins for modded characters/items. Klei strongly forbids the use of modders creating skins for any official character/item. If any mod is found using code from this mod in order to skin official characters/items it will be reported on sight. How To Use: Very special thanks to: @Kzisor who's Additional Dressware mod inspired the creation of this mod! @Dudedude who helped out with the assets. @PeterA who walked me through a lot of the Dos and Don'ts so that I wasn't stepping over any lines! @Blueberrys who made the Persistant Data module that helped make this possible. Can be found here: For anyone wanting to skin their modded characters here are the skin portrait backgrounds! Some frequently asked questions: (If you have any more questions post them down below! I'll reply as soon as I can!) Can I skin Wilson or any other official character? No, Peter has told me to make sure that everybody is very aware that this is off limits... We've been given a gift so let's not squander it! How do I use it? The tutorial is up above! It has all the usable functions inside and how to use them! Please don't rip the code and put it in your mod through... Make sure that when you upload your mod you add this mod as a required item. (It is set up this way so that the same code doesn't run multiple times if someone has multiple mods that have skins!) What is an API? An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of functions which allows you to use advanced techniques without having to write your own code or copy/paste the code in your mod... In order to use this API you must add this mod as a requirement on your mods workshop page. Can I make clothing? No, that is off limits. (and it'd also require a lot of extra code that is not supplied within the mod...) I found a mod that skins official items/characters! What should I do? If it is not the playable pets mod (They technically have the go-ahead to skin the playable mobs) then please immediately report it! We don't want to force Klei's hand and have Modded Skins shut down. What if I made a rip-off character of one of the official characters and skinned that? Still off limits because it is still Klei's character. (even after you change one letter in the name) So this is also prohibited and must be reported if anyone is found doing this! Can this be used to give myself official skins? At the moment I'm more than certain that this is impossible... However, if a way is found to do this using my mod then it's more a fault of Klei's (for leaving a hole in skin restrictions) and not mine because all I did was some UI hacking. What mods are currently using this to make skins? Check out @Chris1488's Modded Skins thread! He's going to try his best to stay on top of what mods get skins and he'll be updating his thread whenever he possibly can! Is mayonnaise an instrument? I'm... not entirely sure? I guess you could make a song using only sounds made by a tub of mayonnaise... But then again you could technically do that with almost everything! So I propose a counter-question. Does that mean that everything is an instrument?
