Hello there!
Over the past several weeks I have been making a MineCraft Blender rig of Steve for my own personal use.
As I finished up the right along with a few of the mobs I decided that I should share this rig with everyone.
That is so nice of me!

Now I will just start off by saying that I am not a professional or even close to professional Blender user. In fact, I am pretty much a noob when it comes to 3D software and all that kind of stuff. Point is, this might not be 100% optimized, but does it work? Fo' sure!

Now there are a few (two that I have seen) rigs floating around there so what sets mine apart?
Well the only thing that really does set me apart is facial expressions and a slightly different structure to the armature.

Facial expressions:

A variety of mobs:

Currently the mobs are: Steve, Sheep, Cow, Pig, Enderman and the infamous Creeper.


-I would very much like to see what you do with my work. Please do send a link over my way with anything you make with it. You do not HAVE to do this.

Oh... You weren't clear onto which boxes... But I'm sure if you render it it will work.

Could I use it for cinema 4d too?
Sadly no... Sorry
Apparently I can't get it opened? Is there anything I might have done wrong? :/

I downloaded the file, placed it on my Desktop, opened it and looked for a program that would open the whole thing or so.. Or is this just a package you put into another program?

I'm completely new to this so don't put so much weight on it please :)
open with this program www.blender.org/
Download the blender program I'll link the program here when I get home.

i have seen someone already make this rig pack i dont think u made it i have seen this before
There are lots of me out there there are similarities. I'm not surprised if there are ones with Steve's and other mobs out there. :) thanks for the concern. I understand the pain of someone stealing someone's work.

You should make lesls common rigs like cars and planes but minecraft-themed.
I wish I could get this rig, sadly I use cinema 4d instead of blender...
Well that rig is very easily recreatable in C4D.
I dont know how to create rigs though
just look up RealLifeMC rig tutorial. That is actually the famous rigger/animator Weedlion from an old account. He has a pretty good tutorial.
blender is free!  you could probably import it in somehow.
You can't import .blend files as a .c4d or .lib4d file
Yeah I know its free because I've got it but cinema 4d is easier to control, for me. I probably wouldn't know how to import it too and most of the mob and steve rigs for C4D aren't that good.
