Change Your Skin in MCPI

minecraftpi

Using the default ‘Steve‘ skin can be boring. Why not change it up a little? Follow this guide and find out how to add your own, personal skin to your MCPI game!

  1. Head to the /mcpi/data/images/mob dictionary. Inside you will find a .png file called ‘char‘ (char.png). Delete it or move it to another location in case you decide you prefer the default ‘Steve‘ skin.
  2. Copy a skin from your PC onto your Raspberry Pi using a USB Storage Device.
  3. On your RPi, copy or move the new skin into the /mcpi/data/images/mob dictionary.
  4. Rename the new skin to char.png. This allows the game to register it as the player’s skin.
  5. Load up MCPI and start looking cooler!
