You can't have a good minecraft skin creator if you don't allow it to hold tools. I decided to make (and they're not pixel accurate, but they're close enough) diamond tools for any skin to hold. I've also posted a V1.1 skin in the LDD that allows one to hold these tools. It's quite simple to use, just add four tiles with studs instead of four flat studs. I hope that when I purchase my skin in real life (which is probably happening on my birthday) I will have some tools with it as well.
About this creation
Okay, so here we have the tools. I know that not everyone uses diamond tools, but since I believe that all other materials for tools are useless (no offense), I made them all diamond.
You can see right here that I've made a small update to the skin (only eight 1x1 tiles in total).
If you couldn't really see them, then here's them hi-lighted.
And here we have me, involving the upgrade. No, you will NOT get the LDD for me, but you will for the new skin creator.
And yet another hi-light.
Okay, as of the time of making this, I have designed (all diamond) a sword...
...a pickaxe (can't go without one)...
...and a slightly inaccurate shovel. Now I'm well aware these aren't pixel accurate, but the work well enough. If I did everything super-accurate, then I'd never get my secret project done (but you already know what it is, since I posted 'a quick glimpse into the future*').
It's me again! And I'm ready to swing my sword.
I CAN SWING MY SWORD SWORD
SWORD MY DIAMOND SWORD SWORD**
And that's a wrap. Don't forget to- oh who am I kidding. JUST DO WHATEVER YOU DO ON THE INTERNET!
*The quick glimpse into the future is a mosaic I'm working on that is revealed to be the B/W sprite of origin form giratina. I have barely made any progress since posting the update a few months ago.
