    I have wanted this feature for a long time. The customisability should be more limited though, because server admins don’t need more reports to take there time away. The skin size probably shouldn’t be changeable except maybe by 1 pixel each way, and transparency should be really reduced. I think the player model should basically be the same as it is, but with the overlay more customisable and more layers; ie make the overlay made out of mini cubes rather than tiles to give a better 3D effect.

    I want this so bad, I 3D modeled my skin for animations and it looks so weird to see it normally in-game. My skin's head is a burger, and I'd love to make it actually look 3D and real.

    Interesting idea; one thing though, if a 3D “cube” is not a perfect cube it is called a cuboid. (Perfect cube being each side the same perfect square)

    Great idea! I think though that you should be able to have parts of the body that are invisible but you can't use that skin on a server. It's a great idea though!

    No! I want to be able to play like this! We need this in both editions.

    The hitbox of all players should be the same! You could make giant decorative wings to your angel skin, yes, but your enemies can’t hit those! 

    That would solve all fairness problems!

    How about animated players and mobs and ragdolls and fatailitys

    I feel like it should require at least half of torso, and same with head. Limbs don't effect much, and being able to remove them increases creativity

    This is laid out very well.

     

    Mabe instead of 2x3 block skins, just like 2.25x1.25.

    Also, this would be great in Java edition. Mabe if the mdel definitions were the same, so you could reuse the model on PC/bedrock?

    I love this idea. The players need this Mojang. Please add this in.

    I hope this gets added sometime

    Of course, it probably won't because one issue is that Microsoft will lose money because no one will buy skin packs.

    how is adding custom models for your skin cheating? it's possible to have an entirely invisible skin already, just make it so that regardless how you change the model the actual hitbox is always the same so they can't just hide their hitbox underground or something.

    this would be a dope re-addition. I've just gotten into the world of model making and skin pack creation and would love to do some experimenting with this as a plausible feature.

    If they implement this, which I really hope they do because I love the idea, an option should be added so players who prefer the classic skin model won’t see add ons. It would also be nice to have more high definition skins, allowing for even more customization.

    Once, on a server, I saw a player with a tiny custom-model skin (Yoda), and they were on Skywar or something, and they were very hard to see, and the item held and the armor were INVISIBLE. Talk about UNFAIR. I would LOVE to see custom models in both Java and Bedrock, but make sure that they cannot be used to gain an unfair advantage. =D

    Maybe for bedrock and/or Java, there could be a skin editor in minecraft (like an official minecraft skin editor) and like the paint or eraser there could be one for adding layers. (I dont know how to make a custom skin so this would be easier).

    On most servers I think that they remove custom models from your skin so it should be fine. I think this is a great idea and I would truly have a better experience playing Minecraft if this feature was brought back.

    This is an amazingly well-written post! For a second I actually thought you had found a way to implement this! I feel like the biggest problems are sizing and animations. Servers should have a setting to block or allow unique sizing and animations on skins. I know that while the sizing might be limited to what it is now, at least adding skin animations would be cool! I could add glow-effects to my skin or create scrolling text of some sort. I know this might cause lag, but that's why there should be a setting to turn it off just in case it starts to cause problems. Custom modeling is already in skin packs in the store, so there is a way to make them already, it just isn't easy for non-programmers to use. I think this could be a great new update for Minecraft at some point, someone at Mojang needs to at least give the community a way to add hats and tails and things. Big thumbs up!

    We certainly need this feature to be re added for players that wanted to have cool looking 3d skins with something like an angelic wing or floating swords and not just the plain and boring flat skin or the rather bizarre character creation on bedrock.

    Also one thing; what if the model extension of somthing like a wing can be folded like how bugs and birds do to make sense of them when entering and exiting doors

    Alright, I got it to 100 votes! Let’s get this show on the road and have this in MC! Who’s with me!?

    For multiplayer people would prob get small characters for a harder hit box

    Voted and followed. This is a well-thought-out and well-written request for something relatively simple that would genuinely add to the experience of Minecraft; as a player, I often feel that my creativity and ability to express myself through Minecraft is inhibited by the limitations of the current skin system, and even a brief Google search makes it clear that there is support for an update to this area across the community.

    Everyone who sees this post and has Facebook and/or Twitter should share this post to try and get it more votes.

    THIS IDEA IS REALLY COOL! MOJANG gotta add this!

    Maybe also the eye position choosing option? Like if the eyes on the skin are higher or lower you will see differently (higher eyes will see higher and lower will see lower, logic)

    Now that character creating is back in Bedrock, this should definitely come to Java.

    i think the main body model that we have now would be hard-coded, and the parts we model would be the additional cuboids

    I loved using the Custom 3D skins in XBox 360! I used the Half Steve, Half Minecraft-Skeleton skin for so long!
