You know that people like HD texture packs.

You know you have to stick with the defaults, whatever the artist gives you, or use a low-D skin.

WELL

how bout we get some HD SKIN SUBMISSIONS!!!???

either give the ability to preview HD skins or allow posting of HD skins. (and screenshots)

Please give your input and ideas.

-PEACE.

Is there a mod which makes it possible to show HD skins ingame?

And when you're using such a HD skin, will everybody see it? Or does everyone need to have this mod then?
(I'm talking about Multiplayer, in Singleplayer it might work.)

Nice idea, but I'm afraid, that this will only work in Singleplayer.

Greetings,
Smon

if you have HD texture packs, you have HD skins.
If a server supports HD texture packs, I believe it will work.

The problem is, you can't showcase/submit/preview HD skins on planet minecraft, and that's what I think would be awesome to do

HD skins only work as a replacement for the default skin (minecraft.jar/mob/char.png) and only you can see it, in place of the steeve skin on players who don't have a custom one. You can't upload an HD skin to minecraft.net.
So the use for HD skins is pretty limited for now. Hopefully the Mojang folks will add support for custom HD skins when they add support for HD packs altogether.

I just drag and replace it in my texture pack, with HD patcher on. It replaces the Char fine.

Like he said, the default skin only. Since this only works with the HD textures, this will stay as a tex pack only item and will not be supported as an official submission type within skins. Confirmed by Cyprezz just now.

At this time, HD skins will not be supported by PMC since they have little use beyond single player Minecraft. If / when they have multiplayer support in MC, then it makes sense for to support them on PMC.

You can use HD skins all you need to do is use a website that can upload skins for you, it then bypasses the oixel count limit

Isn't that also because of the 3D previewer?

there are actually mods available that will allow you to see/view other people's HD skins in multiplayer, but only select servers offer it.
