Fox McCloud Skins for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5

Today I present to you two wonderfully done Fox McCloud skins.  For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of experiencing it, Fox McCloud is the protagonist of Starfox 64 and also appears in the Super Smash Bros series.

Both skins are equally well done; the first, by Drazile12, is a bit darker and lower contrast.  Its shading is not as powerful, but in return it is a very clear skin.  The second, by DragonsDungeon, is intensely shaded and very bright; its high contrast brings out the details in the skin.

 

Remember that both of these skins are version 1.7+ only!

 

Installing the Skin

 

For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on Minecraft.net.  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.

 

For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:

 

  1. Download the skin’s .png file (version 1version 2);

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.

 

Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.

 

If I had to choose one that I liked more, it would be Drazile’s – simply because I am a fan of lower-contrast art in general, and he gave Fox a headset which is an automatic bonus.  Comment below and let us know which of these two skins is your favorite – or, if you know an even better Fox skin, share a link!
