Mod Skin Layers 3D – will improve the appearance of “volumetric” skins for Minecraft, make them more beautiful and realistic. In Minecraft without mods, in order to give volume to the skin, you need to create a 2 texture layer that hangs over the first one and due to this creates the effect of volume, but this approach has disadvantages since when you look from the side you will see gaps.
This mod refines the skins display system and now ordinary skins look really voluminous. As far as I understand, the mod makes the 2nd layer of the skin really three-dimensional by extending this layer towards the player, thus getting the complete transition of the first layer into the second, which eliminates gaps. In practice, this looks very good, although the player will become a little larger, since the 2nd layer is no longer flat, when I went to the server I looked at the skins of other players, and they all looked voluminous, at the same time quite beautiful.
The author also pointed out that the mod’s function is disabled at a distance of 12 blocks from the player to improve performance.
