Minecraft skin editing is one of the funnest and coolest parts of the Minecraft game I believe. Many people are great at making pixel skins for the game and I bet they have fun while doing it. I myself do it sometimes, but I have always wondered why we couldn't have two different arms, shoulders, or legs? You could have a hand with a fireball and the other look like Anakin Skywalker's robot arm! If we could do this, the Minecraft skins would become way more unique and creative! So many new ideas would be made from this improvement I believe. Thank you and I hope you support my idea!

Maby one day they will do it somehow it just needs enough support for them to use there resources to find a decent way to do it.

btw you can use the reply thing instead of posting a new comment so it is easier to find your reply.

I agree it is a good idea but it is not something that they would waste time with re coding it and it would basically break all the current skins made If they did it.(because the skins that don't have the new version would be missing a arm and a leg.)

Which in theory would not be hard to fix but some skinners do not make skins anymore.

But they could add an option like with capes and basically have a bonus texture file to pretty much paint over the old texture but that to could be a big pain if not done right and would have to support invisibility like glass blocks do and normal skins do not.

In short its possible but it would cost an arm and a leg on the community and the creators side to make it happen.
