All my HD Skins can be found in the HDMinecraftskins.com Database.
Downloadable versions available in the Main Discussion Thread


(Requires the HD Player mod)

- Create an account, using your exact Minecraft login name.
- Download the HD Player Mod from the "Downloads" section.

2) Place the contents of the mod into your Minecraft.jar
(Delete the META-INF folder if its still there)

3) Once logged into HDMINECRAFTSKINS.com, Click "Database" to search for existing skins/capes.

4) Enter the name of the character you wish to play as in the search bar,

5) Click the "Wear" button next to the skin/cape you wish to wear!
Enter Spoiler Text here.Obviously, it takes a little more time and effort to create and HD skin than it does a simple 16x32 default skin.
But, with a little patience, anyone can have their own customized HD skin to be proud of!
To that end, I've put together a series of HD skin templates for anyone to use as a starting point.
They can all be downloaded HERE
I've also thrown together a forum thread with various skinning resources anyone can use to make HD skins. Find it HERE

In all honesty, I'm by no means a rich person. And almost every moment I'm not at work is spent working on vonDoomCraft. There's also not a single texture in here so far that took less than 6 hours to create.
I hope it shows; As artistically vonDoomCraft is the largest art project I've ever worked on, and has become somewhat of my Magnum Opus! At this point, I believe I've spent more time actually creating textures for Minecraft than I have actually playing Minecraft.

While I'd never go so far as to say that people need to pay me for my work on vDC, obviously any and all donations are greatly appreciated! Be they $2 or $20,000.

And believe me, I understand that times are tough.
So if you wish to help support vDC non-monetarily, really all you have to do is spread the word a bit! Tell your friends who play Minecraft about vDC, maybe wear a signature.
There's plenty of ways to help out, and I'd like to thank everyone out there already doing such!

Brand new Halo 4 Master Chief HD skins added!
It's got 10 color variants, including the "default" Master Chief green with added "117" and stars on the chest.
With all the colors variants, it totaled somewhere around 15 hours of work, and in my opinion looks ridiculously cool moving around ingame!

Temporarily disabled the submission. Changes are required. Reason: Inappropriate
Please remove the two female bondage skins from this post. While they are well done, we do not allow sexual content on PMC. Thank you. Once you have made the required change, request re-enabling of your submission.

At the risk of sounding argumentative, I went over both the rules you posted as well as the the original, Cyprezz-written rules page, before posting these. The only applicable rule I saw was "[size=150%][size=70%] All content must be PG-13"; which they are.
I've also shown these to about half a dozen site moderators (yellow and above) on the chat, and was basically told that they're no worse than a "Slave Outfit Princess Leia" skin.

I was already well aware of the fact that most of moderators on PMC seem to have their own personal idea of what most of the rules mean, so I checked beforehand and got the go-ahead.

(Whoop! Sorry, clicked he "submit for..." button not realizing it would immediately send a ticket )

The decision to disallow those specific skins was made after a discussion with multiple site mods. In the past we've removed other gimp/bondage skins, as well. Unfortunately, some site mods (possibly new ones or inexperienced ones) seem to have advised you without discussing it with the rest of the group, like we normally do with grey areas of the rules. After a formal discussion, though, we feel that these skins do not follow our appropriateness rules.

So, since I'm not hosting any downloadables on PMC, what exactly is being asked here? That I remove the images completely, or censor them?

Also, does this indicate that I won't be able to publish my HD skin templates here? As they're "nude" muscle structures?

We're asking for the images and downloads of those two skins to be removed.

Got rid of their pictures and download link.

For the record though, I'm calling BS on this.
I fail to see to how having someone in skimpy leather (with no actual backstory) counts entirely as "sexual", whereas if it was Lord Humungous, Bayonetta, Princess Leia, AMH ghosts, or any other number of pop culture characters who wear the exact same thing, it would be okay.

I was just referring to how Ridgedog has an HD skin, but when you look him up on the skin viewer on Minecraft.net, it's a 16x16 version of his HD Skin.
