    I think it would be cool to modify your skin, like more than choosing blue hair, or a leather jacked over a happy face tee-shirt. What i propose is similar to minecraft skins, such as you can make your own guys.

    post opinions, please

    P.S. I think a terminator skin would ROCK!

    Alas we do not yet know what the base character customization options are. As equipment covers up and masks the basic character appearance for the most part, the importance of a custom skin is lessened over time I would think.

    I agree, i suppose, and I guess we dont even know what the normal guy looks like, because the one in the vid's are no longer in use.

    basically what this is. You can change hair color and I think shirt/pants color, but that is all we know of right now.

    The thing about skins in minecraft is that you are painting a box. In this game, custom skinning would require some way to take what you make and animate it and determine where to put armor pieces and such.

    Darn I was hoping this was about skinning fallen foes. Like with a knife.

    It would be a really difficult thing to implement since armors and items will be matched to whatever final sprite design they decide to use. It would be nice to have varying degrees of character customization. So far it looks like just different hair styles and colors and possibly some custom colors on the clothing. It would be nice to see different eye colors and shapes. Maybe different head types and skin tones, as well. Ideally, I'd also like to see different body types for male and female. With the resolution, though, I have a feeling customization will be limited.

    Although I do recall a facebook game that allowed you to take your user avatar and crop it to make the head of your character in game. Maybe there should be an option to use a small gif or png that can be used as a replacement for the character's head, or an editor to create your own custom head.

    Skins would be irrelevant due to armour and items. It would be a big waste of resources to develope a system to host all of the skins when after 2 hours in the game you would no longer see them. Seems a bit pointless.

    This, while possible, would be a pain in the ass. I don't know if you've ever looked at the Terraria files, but for each set of Armour there's about 25 sprites involved. Also for base clothing you can't include colour.

    Well, I think that the layout would be the same as a Minecraft skin edit, with a specific bounding box, which is the shape of the player, and that gets put together and animated just like Minecraft. Armor and stuff wouldn't matter, because skin sizes would be definite. Maybe you could also buy larger skins if you wanted, if you wanted a larger skin. It seems like it would work, but it just might need some extra coding.

    Actually, they made a successful Pony skin. The Player sprite looks completely different. there are also a few modifications to armor. I uploaded here, download and check it out, its impressive.
