MCSkin3D Beta http://alteredsoftwo...b_1_4_0_174.zip

Not many changes, but, Pony support is in. It's not entirely completed yet, as we're in the process of re-designing the "parts" to be more modular.

I also fixed a few tiny bugs, as well as two MAJOR bugs (paint bucket/color picker were swapping G and B value, as well as a render bug that caused paint bucket to crash).

The new color wheel isn't in this version, but it will be in the next beta.

Are there keyboard shortcuts for the tools? I can't seem to find any, so I am wondering if they are implemented (e.g. pressing "P" for "Pencil"). This, in my opinion, would be the most worthy addition to the program if keybindings are not already implemented.

Also, a selection tool would be nice (such as to select a portion of the skin to delete/copy/move).

If anyone could help me find these features (if they exist), that would be fantastic.

Hey there, just wanted to let you know that for whatever reason, sometimes MCSkin3D likes to think that my Alex 1.8-model skins are actually normal 1.8-model skins and reshape the arms. I end up having to switch it back manually. Any way to fix this?

Absolutely amazing. I was using paint but because there was no preview, sometimes it would be hard to see whether I'd gotten it right unless i uploaded and logged in. This however is literally soooooooooooo useful and good and convenient! + It supports the alex model! Hooray!

HOWEVER, there is no selection tool (or i'm blind T_T) which is kind of annoying so I can't move a bunch of pixels at once or copy&paste a pattern

Using the MCSkin3D, there's a selection to choose the model located on the upper right corner. From "Human" change it to "Human 1.8". Of course, after changeing it, it will lack some limbs because of the different model. This time you should add them, then the armor. I hope it helps. (RIP English)
