    Disclaimer: So I know the server normally doesn't focus on random textures not made for building. That being said we could use a "skeleton head" texture and I thought why not make the body to go with it.

    Filename: skeleton
    Resource Pack: All
    Texture image:

    Ingame:

    If I were to continue with mob textures (specifically those with useable heads), any requests? Helmets? Rotting heads? Skull variant?

    It would be nice to retexture the human head into a beheaded head (some blood, and more realistic)
    For Mordor and for every orcs camp or easterlings/haradrims

    I could maybe use some mobs in PVP if you texture the other ones. I'm not sure exactly how right now, but it could be cool.

    Architect plugin will enable us to use an unlimited number of different heads for building So just make all head textures you ever dreamed of ;)

    In that case perhaps I will start small. My current thinking:

    Skeleton:
    • Mob: Skeleton
    • Head: Skull
    Wither Skeleton:
    • Mob: Armored Skeleton
    • Head: Skull w/Helmet
    Zombie:
    • Mob: Orc/Uruk-Hai (based on region)
    • Head: Orc/Uruk Head
    Creeper:
    • Mob: Wraith
    • Head: Scary Face
    Steve:
    • Skin: Soldier (based on region)
    • Head: Helmet

    You could maybe try to make it an upside-down head or something funny like that just to put in places where people have been executed or something, or maybe still make it upside down, but just use the skeleton head textures and flip them for use in the paths of the dead, if voxel does this, you could maybe use it to go through and switch some of the skulls to the upside down one.

    On that subject, maybe with the architect plugin, you could make "sideways" heads with the textures rotated 90° on front and back, and have the top, bottom and side textures moved over one side for more free use with skulls.

    If voxel can rotate heads though, this message is completely pointless and I will be very very sad.

    By this do you mean an empty helmet, for shelves and stuff, or would there be a face? Also for the wither skeleton, would you wait until after we can use the architect so the hints in the potd can be replaced?
    That also gets me thinking … we could use the architect's head feature for all sorts of rp-only helmets and other things that go on your head, if anyone was inclined to make such textures.

    I guess for now Steve can just be a basic adventurer skin (with the head included), later on I can make some helmets (without the head) as I dont think it will take that long.

    Speaking of which here is the Wither Skeleton head (aka skeleton w/helmet), thoughts?

    No it is not voxel, but with tons of commands you can (also in vanilla MC) turn armorstands invisible and rotate the head on it as you want.

    I wonder if it might be possible to make a creeper look like a creeping( on all fours) Gollum/Smeagol or non-Uruk orc.
    Possibly a Moria orc ?
    Maybe the sizes/proportions would be too comical.
    Myself being heavily influenced by Jackson's Gollum as brought to life by Andy Serkis, I don't really see Gollum standing up unless necessary. So being on all fours might work for him.
    Could contrast the Uruk's upright design too.

    Just throwing some ideas out there

    With the architect plugin made by our beloved @Eriol_Eandur we can have every kind of head.

    He's talking about retexturing the mob itself to look like something that crawls, not just the head.

    Achitect plugin features convenient editing of armor stands for Artists and also Adventurer during jobs and at their plots (plotbuilds and themed builds). For example you can choose to rotate the head with '/armor r h' and then rotate the head by clicking at it with a stick in hand.

    Heads (placed for decoration, not at armor stands) can be rotated around y-axis only. So if you want ot turn it upside down you have to make a new texture. Architect plugin provides a command to submit your current head for use at MCME: '/chead submit' Our Head Designer will check submitted heads and may add it to the MCME Head Collection. You can then obtain that head with '/get head <headname>'
    Full Architect manual can be found >>here<<.

    Thank you for your constructive criticism........... the texture is a WIP I just wanted feedback after a day's work

    I'm not that creative or skilled with designing mobs. That being said I intend to make the "zombie" texture to be an orc.

    @Eriol_Eandur once the Architect is officially unveiled I would be happy to create some helmets, severed heads, etc..
